The best movies for HT

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen I am looking to expand my Blu Ray and DVD collection and would like to hear your opinions on your favorites. The old standbys that never seem to get old.You watch them for the third time and hear something you missed. You all know what I am talking about. Best wishes from Arkansas hope you all have a great weekend.

Jeff,

When you say best movies for HT, I bet you are referring to movies that will give that SVS PB13 Ultra a workout.

My reference BD's for LFE in no particular order are:

Flight of the Phoenix

Saving Private Ryan

Black Hawk Down

Iron Man 2

Master and Commander(DVD with DTS soundtrack)

All Underworld movies

U-571

"9"

Kung Fu Panda

Dredd, Avengers and Total Recall are some of my favorite recent movies.

Tron has some great LFE and is just great! I enjoy Armageddon and The Avengers as well. Black Hawk Down is a great bass test, especially during the "Irene" scene.

I can wear people out with the Normandy Invasion scenes in Saving Private Ryan . Pearl Harbor has some kick too .

The Chronicles of Riddick

No Country for Old Men

Heat

Inglourious Basterds

I could probably put together a really long list, of course every theater room needs the collections of Batman, Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, The Godfather, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Band of Brothers, The Pacific and Alien.

+1 for Tombstone - an excellent movie. Also would add Star Trek, Skyfall, Gladiator, & Casino Royale. The opening to Quantum of Solace is also an excellent way to show off your HT.

Finding Nemo...when the little girl is tapping on the fishtank glass.
