Mark, lots of dialog in Sophie's Choice, Leaving Las Vegas, or I Want to Live. (Hide the razor blades!)

Seriously, Hurt Locker has dialog and big effects happening simultaneoulsy. 'least I think it does, but what would I know, me with my VP150 and all.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

Before my budget tripled on my home theatre, I was going to go with a basic Harmon K system. As I started auditioning bigger systems I saw/heard/felt Master and Commander on a Paradigm Studio 100 based set-up at my local dealer and knew I had to get THAT kind of feeling from my setup. M & C is still my favourite movie for boom boom and surround effects.

Two movies that I watch a couple times per year - normally by myself as my wife & daughter aren't too impressed with these two:

Midnight Run: De Niro & Charles Grodin. A great cross-country chase move from 1988. Lots of humour & language but not a lot of audio effects; however, it is a good story & Grodin is wonderful.

Last Man Standing: Bruce Willis, Christopher Walken & Bruce Dern. A largely unknown movie. I'm normally not a big Willis fan but I liked him in this one. Located in a dying town (The Great Depression) in the Texas desert with lots of stylized 1930s gangster shootouts with some great audio effects. Ry Cooder's haunting guitar work throughout adds to the ambiance. Overall a great action flic...

Lots of good movies mentioned already. Lord of the Rings any of the three, Master and commander for the opening battle scene (foot falls acrosss the seiling are so cool), Casino Royal has a really cool scene where you transition from the casino to the street in front and the surround effects are so well done, Iron Man had some really good lfe.

I bought the Anniversary Edition of that recently, because I had $15 in credits at Best Buy and their CD inventory isn't deep enough for me to find much I like there. For a special edition two-disc B-D set, with good reviews, it's pretty inexpensive!

And that scene where you see R2-D2 attached to the bottom of the mothership. Priceless.

Pan's Labyrinth always stands out to me as an excellent surround mix. It's been a while now, I don't recall it as sub workout, but makes you look over your shoulder all the time. Great use of the back channels. Discrete DTS-HD 7.1 mix.
