    I just got my DEnon 3803 all set-up and I am looking for several movies that will really show me what it's capable of. Any suggestions. Looking for loud in your face explosions, crashes, bullets whizzing ect.

    Favorites anyone?

    The Fifth Element, either SuperBit or non. For a disc from 1997, the original still kicks major butt for a Dolby Digital track.

    Independence Day
    Jurassic Park
    Star Wars I and II are great showcases in CGI and sound editing
    The Crow SE has an amazing soundtrack
    U-571 was revered as the ultimate DTS demo - it kicks butt!

    The cabin gunfight in Air Force One is a great one for bullets whizzing past your head.
