    I like: True Lies, Saving Private Ryan and my favorite (as far as sound is concerned[​IMG]) Black Hawk Down.

    I like...
    Terminator 2
    Independence Day (I hope you have a good sub)

    How about any of the Jurassic Parks? I haven't seen any of them yet.

    I would never demo new gear with a movie, ALWAYS use music first, as music is far more revealing and subtle.

    Diana Krall: Live in Paris (DTS) is an excellent demo disc. (I'm surprised Phil didn't mention that one).
    Eagles: Hell Freezes Over (DTS).

    What does Superbit have to do with anything? For sound, they are simply DTS tracks.

    Movies:

    Blade II (DTS-ES)
    Titan AE (DTS)
    The Haunting (DTS-ES, but the Dolby version is also very good)
    From Hell (DTS)

    LOTR is DD-EX.

    Dolby tracks:
    Fight Club
    Heat
    Superspeedway
    Abyss: SE
    Ghost in the Shell

    Monsters, Inc is one of the best discs to use for a demo. Watch the LFE level though [​IMG]
