    (would help if the movies worth watching too)

    Hehe, I like that! :D

    Here my recommendations (all R1); great picture, better sound and IMHO worth watching:

    Gladiator
    The Matrix
    LA Confidential
    The 5th Element (Superbit perhaps)
    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
    The Long Kiss Goodnight
    The Rock
    The Nightmare before Christmas
    Heat

    Well, there are surely many more and others want to add some, too ...

    Mission Impossible 2 has some of the best sound effects but not a particularly good film.

    Apocalypse Now

    Got the usual lot there.... but I want to put in a second mention for 'Behind Enemy Lines'. The movie's fantastic, and the soundtrack is awesome.
