I am just setting up my first home theatre and I am looking for some suggestions of fun uses of the new equipment. The pj is 1080 (epson 8350), hooked up to a powerful gaming PC.

I have really enjoyed putting Dream Aquarium so far. The fish are goegeous.

Can you recommend some other fun uses to show off the new capabilities? Movies, youtube vids, video games, interactive websites?

(Edit: pc is i7 @4.5GHz, SLI GTX470s oc'd, ssd, 8GB RAM)
