Hey folks. I want to start this off by saying that, though I rarely post here, I have been a member for some time, and I post regularly on the forums at highdefdigest.com, which I was initially attracted to because of HD DVD and now blu-ray. In any case, I have a similar thread running on HDD, which you can view at the following link:
In any case, the responses there have been great but I need to get as much info as possible so I'm expanding to avsforum. As the title suggests, I'd like to know what your top 5 (or more) most viewed blu-ray discs are, especially if you are using a PS3. Here are my tops:
The Dark Knight
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
and if I didn't have these on HD DVD, they would surely be on constant cycle in my PS3:
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
The Bourne Trilogy
Children Of Men
Kung Fu Panda
Ice Age 2
The Incredible Hulk
(Did you spot a pattern emerging....?)
The pattern I see in this is heavy bass movies. I know KFP has it, I watch it all the time, especially Skidoosh!
I have seen Hulk, and that definately is bass heavy.
Cars has decent bass too. I haven't seen Ice Age, I guess I will now.
Anyhow, the movies I have watched the most
1. Kung Fu Panda
2. Iron Man
3. Dark Knight
4. Hairspray - which has good bass in musical sequences
5. Sweeney Todd - another musical with cool bass.
I will be getting soon, Wall-E, The day the earth stood still, War of the Worlds.

Lately it's been the Bond series. Dr No, From Russia with love, Goldfinger.....
They have phenomenal PQ for their age and I've been going through all the Special features. However, My wife says if she hears the Bond theme song again she's going to go nut's (LOL).
No PS3, just Panasonic BD30(bedroom) and BD55(living room).
In no order:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
When We Left Earth
Led Zeppelin - The Song Remains The Same
One of the reasons these particular titles get a lot of play is because I usually have one of them playing while I'm painting or working late at night and they fill the bill as background "noise." Plus, they're among my favorite movies.
Not too proud to admit this, but of the 372 blu-ray and 166 HD DVDs that I own, Hairspray is by far and away - not even in the same ballpark - the most watched movie. My wife and kids like the music and she puts it on all the time.
