    I’m showing off my Tosh 36ZP18P Saturday night.
    I need a high octane action-packed yet deep and thought-provoking DVD film with an excellent transfer.

    Any suggestions?

    Saving Private Ryan? (not that deep I know but It's hard to get action packed and thought provoking!)

    RDB :)

    You showing off your tosh or your sound system or both?

    Saving Private Ryan, Matrix, Terminator 2

    All will give your sound n vision a work out.

    'You showing off your tosh or your sound system or both? '


    The tosh has DD5.1 and its own speakers (so showing off the TV)

    Das Boot sounds good...

    Is this film a bit dark?
    The TV doesn't like dark pictures very much.

    Cheers

    try the pod race in : Phantom Menace
    the fight scenes in : Crouching tiger hidden dragon
    the action bits at the end of the movie : Leon

    and the other ones mentioned in the other replies are good too.
    depends on the audience, some people don't liek the gore,
    fighting scenes etc... but show 'em Saving Private Ryan (dts)
    anyway.. it'll make em thanks themselves their not in the army!
    That's one of my best movies.

    Have fun.

    Cya,
    Shaz

    I've always thought Saving Private Ryan looks pretty bad with that washed out grainy WWII look (technical term) - great sonics though.

    Try the superbit versions of the Fifth Element and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Thin Red Line or even Hannibal if you want thought provoking

    I agree, Das boot may be a great film, but I think choosing something a bit more light hearted and less than three hours long is always a bonus when entertaining...

    Just show clips of films accompanied by large amounts of alcohol works for me..

    Fifth Element
    Crouching Tiger - the cinematography and fight scenes
    Swordfish - how about the explosion at the start and Halle Berry's berries!
    Shrek - Picture quality thoughout is superb
    Gladiator
    Fight Club
    Seven special edition (Not very cheerful though!)

    How about Armageddon or The Rock.

    You could always give Pearl Harbour a blast (literally!!):D

    You cant knock Pearl Harbour for its soundtrack, easily one of the best around, even if the film was hyped beyond belief.

    Now Moulin Rouge is the biggest load of toss I´ve had the misfortune to see recently while we´re on the subject of naff films.

    Loads of people reckon its bloody brilliant, maybe I´m missing something somewhere (few brain cells possibly!!):rolleyes:

    The T-Rex attack in Jurassic Park is a fantastic audio experience - special effects aren't bad either!

    The Big Hit - not thought provoking but funny (or rather silly) with some good action and sound effects.

    Else the ones mentioned already: T2, The Matrix, CTHD, The 5th Element etc. etc.

    Film 1
    The fast and the furious
    Fantastic audio (DD5.1) The best crap film I’ve seen for ages.

    Film 2
    Gladiator
    Great visuals, booze detrimentally affected last hour (or so).

    Friend suitably impressed.

    Thanks for the suggestions…

    Try the DTS on the fast and the furious, knocks socks off the DD5.1, just make sure your sub is bolted down, and the foundations solid.......

    I think crap is too strong a word for it, I still found it entertaining, which after all is what it is all about, not every film has to provoke or enlighten..
