I recommend Curse of the Golden Flower, a phenomenal feast for the eyes by Chinese director Zhang Yimou. Breathtaking colors, outrageously detailed costumes, plus Chow Yun Fat and Gong Li light up the screen.

I personally get sucked into Phantom of the Opera. The colors of the masquerade scene get me every time!

While watching the Bluray Version of Puss n Boots tonight i realized it too belongs on this list, the pastels and animated skin tones and glowing beans jump off the screen, i continue to be amazed at the color reproduction and fluid like movements with no blur, great movie but Plasma just brings it too life..

Baraka is my go-to demo (for audio and visual), but I have to recommend Winged Migration as well. Criterion's Night of the Hunter or Last Year at Marienbad both show what can be done with B&amp;W. I'll be checking out Art of Flight.<br>(One to avoid is One Eyed Jacks, in case you haven't heard.)

Is there a Region B (with UK subtitles) version of "A Woman, a Gun, and a Noodle Shop"? I can either find Region A, or a Region B with German subs.

I agree with some, but would add. War of the worlds, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, OZ, Oblivion, The Art of Flight. I also agree that Immortals sucks, how on earth did that make any list.

What movie really convinced me that I need to step up to HD was Alien on bluray. I had seen it on DVD but the bluray transfer made it look like it was filmed yesterday. Also, Pacific Rim looks and sounds incredible!

Show off Your HD Display

I would add Lawrence of Arabia ( Academy Award Winner ) . Desert scenes are visually stunning plus interesting historical narrative .

I have to agree on Zodiac, Fifth Element and 2001; A Space Odyssey. And I would like to add that many other old movies has superb image quality like How the west was Won and Lawrence of Arabia.

Fifth element is a must for sure. Pacific Rim. Black Hawk Down, Tron, the dark knight, hell boy, coraline, star trek into the darkness, thor 2, avatar, pirates of the carribean all, sucker punch, ultra violet, mr and mrs smith, scott pilgrim, oblivion, freat and powerful oz, alice in wonderland, life of pi, numerous kids movies and total recall new.

None for good movie. Just visual stunners.
