    When it was Laser Disc I always used Jurassic Park (Nothing like a rampaging T-Rex to shake the house)
    With DVD my friends liked The Matrix and Private Ryan (The fight scenes and beaching storming always hooks them)

    North By Northwest.

    The opening title sequence with Bernard Herrmann's excellent score in 5.1... easily impressive.

    Usually Toy Story 2. It has that amazing picture, a great opening sequence, and the nifty THX trailer at the start to show off the surrounds right off the bat.

    I'm going to put mine down as the Lotr. The opening sequence is just incredible.

    I used to use The Rock : Criterion Collection, now I use The Lord of the Rings : Fellowship of the Ring.
    From the opening words in Elvish, through the introduction of Sauron, and the Last Alliance battle.. jawdropping HT. [​IMG]

    IMAX LaserDisc of 'The Dream is Alive". I show it as an example of quality that existed long before DVD.

    I also offer T-2 side by side, LD vs. DVD, to show folks what motion artifacts are all about.

    I sit them in the middle of the room, have them close their eyes, then turn on the F5 tornado at the beginning of Twister! I love to watch them jump [​IMG]
