    Hi, I have been searching the net for a list of reference video DVDs, I am not necessarily looking for the best DVDs as far as audio , video and extras , just the video.
    Does anyone know where such a list exists?

    BTW I know of alot of excellent reference video DVDs but I was hoping to find a large list that contains some lesser know titles as well.

    thanks

    bump, anyone? , thanks


    Let me start by saying I think Gladiator is a reference disk, and I am not particularly impressed with the Fifth Element Superbit version....that is compared to Gladiator anyways.

    Pretty much the main discs I consider to be reference quality are:

    Gladiator
    LOTR 1 and 2
    Anything from Pixar
    Lion King
    Star Wars AOTC
    T2


    Now how about naming some lesser know titles?

    Finding Nemo
    Matrix Reloaded
    Lion King

    James,

    You might want to check out the ISF reference list on:

    http://www.filmsondisc.com/ISF_Refer...VD_Program.htm

    Ever since I got my display calibrated, I've used this list plus some of the newer dvd's since this list isn't updated as often as I would hope. The list also enumerates specific chapter stops for specific scene.
