    The Software peeps will help you best:



    My picks



    [*]Saving Private Ryan : DTS[*]The Haunting : DTS[*]Toy Story 2[*]Star Wars : Episode I[*]Se7en : Platinum Edition[*]Superman : The Movie[*]Gladiator





    Have fun trying out your new setup.. Four of the above are explicitly 5.1EX or 6.1 discrete, although all should provide a decent center surroundfield.

    May I add these as well?
    Pearl Harbor Dolby Digital or DTS is great, however, the Dolby track to me is more impressive. I still think my couch moved during the movie! My Velodyne ULD-18 got down and dirty with this baby.
    Star Wars: Episode One Need I say more?
    The Fifth Element-Superbit Dolby or DTS sounds great. True Demo both audio and video.
    MI:2 Maybe the most underrated audio mix out there. Quite possibly the most well balanced DVD sound, besides Episode One that I own.
    Good Luck! Tell us what your impressions are too. What equipment are you using?

    The Exorcist: the version you've never seen has a pretty dynamic Dolby Digital EX track (if only I could remove the new ending).
    The New Superbit Bram Stoker's Dracula has one the best atmospheric 5.1 tracks around, in either DD or DTS.

    If you only mean explosive, bass heavy tracks, they are covered above. For a music track, check out 2 Days in the Valley. It's almost seems as if the soundtrack was the primary focus, and they laid the movie over it, rather than vice-versa. Very prominent, very clear, without being strident. I love the movie itself, but it seems to fall into that 'love it or hate it' category.
