Mate - Where do you start!!

If your on HD then my picks are:

HDDVD:
Matrix Revolutions - the sentinal war scene
King Kong - any of it
300 - any of it
BLURAY:
Surf's up did it for me on PQ
People say Spidey 3 is good although it didn't do it for me.
Aparenty Cars & Ratatoulle (spelling?) are outstanding!

SD:
Cars looked & sounded ace!
Nemo
Intro scene to saving private ryan
Pirates 2 - Kraken scene

Saying all this, i am commenting on the whole package - ie pic, sound etc.
What set up have you got at your end mate?

Phantom Menace's Pod Racing sequence in 5.1 has always been one of my favourites.

Currently loving the T-Rex battle from King Kong and the opening 15 mins of Casino Royale, the PQ of the title sequence and the parquor (sp?) chase is fantastic (blu-ray)

Other fave's from the past include the wormhole trip from Contact & the "Burly Man" from Matrix Reloaded.

I'm with you on the pod racing scenes, if your subs on song it almost causes a bowel movement.:rolleyes::oops:
The scenes in U-571 where the depth charges go off near the submarine and also Star Wars, i think it was Phantom Menace, when the sonic mines explode, i like a bit of bass me.

2nd vote for the depth charge scene in U571.
