great lists. I usually break out Matrix, LotR(any of them) and Master and Commander. Great for surround sound.

A worthy consideration to any list of titles like this...<br><br>"How the West Was Won" (2-Disc Digibook)<br><br>The 2-Disc version of this release contains one of the most innovative supplements (IMO) ever released to the Blu-ray market -- the "Smilebox" presentation of the film, which simulates the immersive 3-strip Cinerama viewing experience that was seen in theaters.<br><br>This alternate HD version of HTWWW is, without question, demo-worthy material. Thanks for letting us share, Mr. Potts.

First, Kudos to the studios who are making great effort to restore old 'classics' ( quotes because one man's classic can be another man's, ehh..). The level of effort to do it right is remarkable. I have, among others, the blues of Goldfinger, from Russia With Love and Bridge on the River Kwai. The improvement over previous releases is remarkable. ( I'm talking; laser, DVD, Special Edition DVD.... Yeah , the SOB's got me every time for my favs...)<br><br>Anyway, understood they are still not 'show pieces' for the best of systems, but content counts. So here's hoping in the not too distant future your list includes Lawrence....

Always surprised to see the Star Wars trilogy, The Dark Knight and Ghost Protocol in A/V Top 10/20, when the first one have movies awfully DNRised, the 2nd one has even its IMAX scenes EEed (damn, the prologue was looking better on Batman Begins BD !), and the last one have several occurences of encoding issues.<br><br>Especially when you have movies like The Thin Red Line or Watchmen waiting for you. ^^

I wouldn't have put The Dark Knight the list. The IMAX scenes are a wonder to behold, but everything else is marred by edge enhancement and DNR.

Great list - thanks for posting! I heartily agree with Battle: Los Angeles - we had the DVD prior but on Blu-Ray it really blows you out of your seat. Inception was everything you said as well.<br><br>For my nominations - Planet Earth has to be on a top ten list.. The photography and sound are unprecedented for a nature documentary - shot in HD using pioneering techniques which put you in the heart of the action. On the first disc, the scenes with seals and the Great White shark confirm you've made a great choice.<br><br>Collateral - great nocturne starring Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx, directed by Michael Mann. Most of it was shot in high-def; there is a huge difference between the DVD and Blu-Ray versions. Again, the sound is excellent.<br><br>Wall-e - the picture is lush and sharply detailed, and the sound quality is outstanding. BTW - Finding Nemo is set to be released as a five-disc set in Dec. 2012 and the should be a stunner for HD.

Yeah, I have all the movies listed in the first post and agree that they all are great for showing off one's video display. Many of them are very good for showing off the audio system as well.<br><br>Thanks for the listing.

I'm sorry, I just don't get The Tree of Life. I've watch it three times and I don't get it. One time when I was high, I just don't get it.

Can't recommend The Fall enough! So glad I came across it here. The scenes are amazingly fantastical and the colors so vivid. Additionally, how the young actress here steals the show was so pleasantly unexpected. Thanks Ralph!

Curse of the Golden Flower. Subtitled. A lot of dazzling, colorful scenes. Story wasn't bad either.

King Kong should have been somewhere on the list. Reference video (and audio, too, by the way)

'Monsters, Inc'. If you've got to have one computer animated movie this is the one to have.

Even though the movie is a bit cheeseball, Sucker Punch is visually stunning!

Good list, but I would recommend Iron Man 2, The Watchmen, and The Green Lantern as great reference quality blu ray discs.

I always go to the last Star Trek movie to evaluate picture tweaks that I may be trying out in my theater. Plus I just love the movie.
