    Yep, I have a few "Demo" DVD's, but I am getting tired of playing the same thing over and over again for people that want to be "wowed". I have the Matrix, Charlie's Angels, Mission Impossible 2, Gladiator, and Heat. I am not looking for a bass demo as much as I am looking for something that uses the surround soundfield a lot. Preferably an action movie, but others are OK.
    Help?

    I personally was impressed by "Snatch". It's probably not the action, shake your house bass that you're looking for, but the bass in the soundtrack was assume to me.

    Just a few suggestions...
    Fight Club, Predator DTS, The Fifth Element (although you might want to wait for the Superbit release), Se7en, Saving Private Ryan DTS, and X-Men. In my opinion, all of these discs have good sound, and utilize all 5.1 channels very well.

    The beginning of "Cliffhanger" is very good for surround to front panning of the helicopter, great intro, IMO.
    Mystery Men and Galaxy Quest are also very good. [​IMG]

    Tyson, Twister has a bunch of good surround demos in it. Especially the begining. Also DTS demo discs are very good. I just happen to have an extra one for trade if you look at my ad in the software for sale/trade section.

    Thanks guys,
    I have Fight Club, I forgot to mention it. I just joined the Columbia house DVD club, got Blade, the Crow, U-571, and the Fifth Element as my 4 intro movies. I wanted X-men, and Saving Private Ryan, but those weren't movies that Columbia house stocks. They don't have either of the Terminator movies or the Toy Story movies either, which kind of sucks. Ah well, thanks for the great suggestions.

    Tyson,
    CH carries both versions of Saving Private Ryan (DTS & DD). The also have T2:Ultimate Edition available. X-men is not because it is a Fox title.
    Check out this very detailed FAQ for columbia house. It will help you get the most for your money.

    I was very impressed with REQUIEM FOR A DREAM's sound, but no one ever seems to mention it.
