What is your favorite BRD and scene to demo your home theater? I havent found one yet but I think that Blackhawk Down or the scene in Crank when he is in the pool are pretty good.

We just had our annual summer party at our place.... and the demo scenes I used for the few who wanted to check out the theater were:


1. Casino Royale (openning scene - chase)

2. Queen - Live from Montreal... THe Queen demo at full reference level being the crowd favorite... I couldn't get anyone to leave the theater for over an hours worth of the performance... My friends are still talking about it.



I find with most demos that PQ takes a second spot to audio effects for most folks. HD is HD to most but big bass, surround effects and dynamic are what impresses the guests...

I firmly believe that the audio accounts for 60-75% of the experience of a home theater.


Perhaps a new tier system for Best Demo BDs which combines audio and video quality???

Some of my favorites.....In no particular order....


1. Matrix Reloaded...Highway Chase Scene....Insane HT demo material


2. Transformers....the Ironhide(?) Flip through the end of the film....pure HT crack


3. Toy Story 2 DTS......Opening sequence....still just awesome


4. Cloverfield TrueHD.....sequence right before they go into the subway, or bridge getting destroyed


5. Fight Club....mid air collision....still love this one


6. King Kong....T-Rex fight....Empire State building scene....


7. Live Free or Die Hard.......semi/jet scene....WOW.


8. Led Zep Earls Court DTS....The opening 3 acoustic tunes are still one of my favorite HT demos even over anything I have listened to on HD or BR. Just awesome and always impress the guests.


9. Talking Heads Stop Making Sense....whole disc....again this is lossy DD, but still one of the best.


10. NIN Beside you in Time TrueHD....whole show


Just a few that come to mind as there are a lot more



Oh and of course WOTW, cant forget that one.

I'd like to add a third criterion: quality of the movie itself. For me the best non animated movie that combines all three is Live Free and Die Hard. YMMV.

Does anyone have anything new to add to this? My theater should be done in a few weeks and I really want to show it off. Thanks.
