I like lord of the rings. They're dts-es discrete, too (a slight bonus if you have the neccesary decoder).
Das Boot is rumored to have a good dts doundtrack, but the superbit edition is difficult to find.
Almost Famous is nice, but I'm not suure if the dts is that much better.

Usually, I default to dts, and fall back to Dolby Digital if I need to use "midnight modes."

Don't forget good old Casper one of the first 'good' DTS tracks released to the theaters.

It's not so much a 'wow' track, as an immersive track.

For me, Saving Private Ryan is still the benchmark against which all other soundtracks are measured. Despite the many other excellent soundtracks that have been produced since, I always think of SPR as my reference disk.

I agree with all of the above and would add Master & Comander to the list. Casper in DTS on Laserdisc is awesome I haven't heard the DVD.

I agree wholeheartedly with Master & Commander!

And, Saving Private Ryan, too.

Oh! And, Diana Krall: Live in Paris! Posted Image

Hmmm. Nobody mentioned "the Haunting" yet? Awesome DTS discrete track.

I'm a big fan of many mentioned already and would like to add Blade II.......incredible DTS-ES track. That track will make your equipment work and keep you in the action to be sure!

I completely agree with Billy C. on this one. Saving Private Ryan still holds the title in my book even though there are some very worthy contenders out there. The Haunting still has the deepest bass of all, but the overall track on SPR is my favorite to this day. I do have very high hopes for the upcoming War of the Worlds DVD because not only is it DTS and done by Spielberg(just like SPR), but it was the best sounding movie I've ever heard in the theater. If the disc sounds anything like the cinema experience I had there may be a new reference disc in my collection. Posted Image

I would also suggest that if you're in a music mood, The Eagles: Hell Freezes Over always impresses anybody I've ever played it for...including myself!
