    Fifth Element - Opera scene and weapons demo
    Das Boat - any depth charge scene and for the very quiet moments with water dripping in the sub, great atmosphere
    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - fight scenes
    Stargate DTS - Gate power up, going through the gate and 'rings' decending
    Jurassic Park the bit where the flocking dinasaurs run past you up either side of the room.
    Vertical Limit Excellent if unexpected surround sound during avalanche scenes
    Independence day - white house bit
    ARMAGEDDON - New York scene
    DRAGONHEART - ch.12 (i think)where the dragon flies round Dennis Quad
    THE MATRIX - most of it but the opening, training and lobby scenes
    TOY STORY 2 - crossing the road
    Gladiator - opening battle
    Blade - Disco scene
    Starship Troopers - BUGS!

    For vision
    Any Pixar release like Toy Story, A Bugs life etc


    Also try the Dolby, DTS and THX idents.
    The T2 THX one is very good. As is the DTS one on the T2 and Stargate discs

    Face/off has a great opening chapter, I dug mine out last night after not having watched it for a long time. Recent upgrades to my system resulted in a large pot of cactus shaking off a shelf and spilling over the floor much to the delight of the better half :D
