Help me test my Blu-ray player's DVD upscaling ability.

I'm looking for a scene in any movie or TV series that shows barely-readable text. Maybe some character is reading a newspaper or a computer screen. If I can read the text, I'll know that my Blu-ray player's upscaling ability is working properly. Can anyone suggest a good example to use for this test?

If you post your model, others can tell you whether it does a fair or excellent job upscaling. Also, you can compare for yourself whether your display or your player does a better job upscaling.
