Without question 'Hugo ' is the most stunning Blu Ray I have ever seen.
Very close second - 'The Ten Commandments'
Very close third - 'The Searchers' - John Wayne

The Dark Knight
Transformers (2008)

It's not about output, it's about having headroom and a smooth response across multiple seats. And output a little bit.
