Just installed a 6.1 System.
What are your top Movies for SOUND
Top DTS / Dolby Ditigital Movies
The Software peeps will help you best:
[*]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.
Big Trouble In Little China
O Brother Where Art Thou?
(All of these have both excellent DTS and DD 5.1 tracks, except for BTILC. It has 4.1)
Here are some great 5.1 remixes in Dolby Digital for vintage movies:
North By Northwest
Wizard of Oz (remixed for 1998 re-release)
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Lawrence of Arabia
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Superman: The Movie
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
Also, the DD mono tracks for
It Happened One Night
The Maltese Falcon
Arsenic and Old Lace
Moving this to Home Theater Software.
Top Dolby Digital
- Fight Club (Dolby EX 6.1) [simply the best!]
- The World is Not Enough
- Toy Story 1
- Toy Story 2 (Dolby EX 6.1)
- Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
- Pee Wee's Big Adventure (remix)
- Almost Famous: Untitled
- The Rocky Horror Picture Show (remix)
- Jurassic Park (corrected version)
- The Lost World
- Men in Black
- Gladiator (DTS-ES 6.1)
- Evil Dead (DTS-ES 6.1) [remix]
- Jaws (remix)
- The Rock: Criterion Collection
- Cast Away (DTS-EX 6.1)
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?
Any More advise?
Last of The Mohicans
Fast And The Furious
S7Ven New Line Platinum Edition
Star Wars Episode I
Dances with Wolves--DTS version is excellent!
Apollo 13-- DTS
In the Line of Fire--Dolby Digital.
dolby digital : X-Men, U-571, Fight Club, and Seven.
Also try The 13th Warrior for some wondferful Dolby Digital...
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.
Star Wars Episode One
Men in Black
The Fast and the Furious
Hannibal - the fish market gunfight is AWSOME
Bring It On - im dead serious about this. i loved this film in dts and u can proly get it for ten bucks now
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.
When you consider ambience, split surrounds, LFE and general reality of the soundtrack, my fvourites are...
- Vertical Limit (dts)
- Titan AE (dts)
- Terminator 2 UE (dts)
- The Lost World (dts)
- Jurassic Park 3 (dts)
- The Fifth Element (dts)
- Toy Story 2 (DD)
- Titanic (DD)
- The Phantom Menace (DD)
- The Perfect Storm (DD)
- The Matrix (DD)
- A Bug's Life (DD)
Keep them coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
