Star Wars II Attack of the Clones. The opening scene alone will make you leak clear stuff.

Saving Private Ryan...

the scene where they're storming the beaches of Normandy on D-Day.

In-fucking-credible. The view is first person, and not only can you hear the bullets whizzing past your head, but if you listen close to the 5.1, you'll hear the bullets "popping" into the soldiers on either side of you. I don't know how they did it... digital magic... but it's timed perfect. You hear a wet slap to your right, and the guy to your right drops like a sack of cement.

It's eerie. :icon_eek:

Star Wars:
The Phantom Menace - Pod racing, Darth Maul vs. Obi Wan.
Attack of the Clones - The scene with Obi Wan trying to get away from Jango Fett in the asteroids.(my favorite surround sound clip).
Revenge of the Sith - Opening Scene.

Pearl Harbor- the attack on Pearl Harbor
Dawn Of The Dead (Remake) - Entire movie is freaky with all lights out and just you by yourself.
Batman Begins - was pretty good.

Any of the big summer move type things should be good, Armageddon, Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day.

For something with an actual story, you cant beat the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

QFT. I watched the opening scene with my future brother in law recently and we practically wept as the surround sound enveloped us.

I was thinking of the same scene. The seismic charges sound fuckin' cool. Gave me a chubby. I have a 6.1 system with both Dolby Digital EX & DTS. What does everyone else have?

Unfortunately I dont have surround sound. I have a baby flatscreen (32") with HD and all but since Im saving for a wedding I cant get the system I so richly deserve.

Once I break open those envelopes at the wedding, though...

Dolby 5.1...heh cute.

Lossless 5.1 at 20/96 or higher. Beats the crap out of 384kbps Dolby.

DTS at 1.5Mbps is better than Dolby though. More depth.

Oh...and Crank on Blu-ray has awesome audio.

Absolutly insane quality. Band of Brothers, all 10 hours if you can get thru it, or just the Forest of Bastone scene if you just want to pick one or two hours to watch.

Side note... My father, a WWII vet, went to see SPR in the theatres and left in the first 10 minutes of the movie. Asked him about it later and all he said was, "I was there, I don't need to see it again becuase that was way to real." And this is coming from a man who loves war flicks.

I have a Onkyo 703 receiver with a full set of Polk 5 speaker surround, no subwoofer being that I have the LS25s with 10" subwoofers built in. It sounds nice. But my tv is just a 42" Sony but I still like it. I am not sold on 6.1 or 7.1 yet, you really have to have a large room with a lot of space between in order to set it up well.

Best sound that I have heard are the Lord of the Ring trilogy movies like has been mentioned before. But if you really want a great experience, play halo or Halo 2. the designed the sound to be different everytime. Another cool one was Splinter Cell, I fucked around for an hour throwing cans against a wall and listening to them bounce around the surround speakers.

i have a denon avr 2802, 7.1 DTS, mirage satalite speakers for TV and a bitchen set of cerwn vega VS 120's for music, right now its only set up in its 5.1 configuration because my room is not right for 7.1 and i dont feel like buying two more speakers.

as for movies, the abyss is a great one, and of course the usual star wars star trek, star ship troopers, SPR... etall

but another great one believe it or not is Forrest Gump. the fire fight scene is awsum, one second its raining and the next all hell is breaking loose, also a lot of the "large group" seines have a lot of action going on all around you just like your part of the crowd.

good fellows, the scene where hendery gets into the argument with his old lady you can here a dog barking but only out of the right hand speaker as if its coming from behind the bedroom door.
when there walking in threw the kitchen you here pots and pans knocking around.....

theres lots of films were the surround sound is so subtle that you dont notice it till its not there, those are the ones that i enjoy the most, yea its great to here bullets wizzing by and shit blowing up, but i also enjoy the sounds of the crickets in arachnophobia, or the rain and the wind in a perfect storm

i love my surround sound, it pisses me off that i have yet to properly set it up, that is key, to getting your money's worth, good placement and tuning of the speakers its critical, not to mention cheeping out on cables like i did, i need about 400$ worth of cables and about two days of re routing to square my shit away how it should be.

no, there just he run of the mill mirage satalights with a 10" sub i bought this system in 2001 and the omnisats were way too expensive i needed to keep in in a budget, they work well for TV and movies but i really need the extra ooomph of the 120's to give a richer sound, but the 120's are 4ohms and i need to run an auxiliary cooling fan on my amp to keep it from burning up, but damn does it sound good. i put attack of the clones in for my brother in law, and i think he is still quivering, i also played the matrix lobby scene in for my dad, both of them went out and bought 5.1 systems, and of course i ended up installing them:rolleyes:
