Best BD reference audio to give setup a workout?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
What bluray movies have the best audio to show off surround sound system?

So far im thinking Black Hawk Down, Pearl Harbor, World Trade Center, Underworld, Kingdom of Heaven...Any more?

Monster House & Silent Hill also pretty memorable tracks...O yeah STEALTH, Transporter 2, Windtalkers and Tears of The Sun

Silent Hill
Tears of the Sun
Descent
Pearl Harbor
The Terminator(this sounds so damn good, but as a purist I would prefer the original sounds instead of some of the new sound effects)

all PCM of course Transporter 2 DTS is very very good along with almost every Fox title for that matter

Do the Descent and Silent Hill sound better then Enemy of the State? I was not too impressed with Enemy of the state even tho its 48khz/24bit LPCM.

Kingdom of Heaven sounded really impressive when Orlando bloom was banging away making a sword, maybe i just want more subwoofer sound =)

Kung Fu Hustle. It's PCM track has excellent clarity and thunderous LFE. Also, it's a very good movie unlike many of the movies mentioned here.

I wish the Cantonese track would have been DD5.1.. My receiver doesn't take HDMI, only optical.

Pearl Harbor has some great ratings for its audio portion although I didnt think it was as good as I expected IMO

IMO X-Men: The Last Stand stood out the most and really put to use the complete surround sound set-up!

I guess I'm the only one who thought this, but out of all the Movies I have watched the only one that I can truly remember as impressing me was Transporter 2, that was just amazing.

Monster House sounds incredible, as does the Descent.

X-Men Final Stand is my choice here. The PQ is excellent but the audio is the best I've heard yet on Blu-ray. I have been very disappointed in the audio tracks on most of the Blu-ray titles I've sampled so far. MI-III hadvery good audio as well.

It doesn't make much sense to release a title on Blu-ray if you are not going to clean-up the PQ and include a high bitrate DTS track.

Pearl Harbor - Battle Scene (starting at chapter 21)
Resident Evil: Apocalypse - Showdown at City Hall
Crank
The Descent
Underworld; Evolution

I know it's lossy DD 5.1, but Swordfish is great. I love the explosion and the ball bearings wizzing by at the beginning. I've used that as demo material and it really makes onlookers smile.

I'd really like to see Finding Nemo on Blu-Ray. The Darla tapping on the aquarium scene is what I used as my DVD demo. Awesome LFE there.

Yes. Then add to that:

X-Men 3: X Finds Jean at Her Old Home and Magneto Builds Bridges/Phoenix Goes Bananas.
Kingdom of Heaven: The Siege
Black Hawk Down (virtually the whole movie, but especially Irene).

Those are the ones that stand out in my mind.
