    Fast and the Furious ? I know the story is a bit thin on the ground but the fast moving cars will be a good test and close ups of the drivers faces will show the skin tones too.

    On the same principle as "Fast & Furious" what about "Ronin"- rapid car chases but in this case a good plot as well

    Or why not just choose your favourite couple of films; you're the one who's going to be watching the thing so as long as you're satisfied with how it looks with them, surely that is sufficient? (Best not to use animated or CGI films though, as most displays/processing will get a decent result on these).

    Hi

    How about Pirates of the Caribbean - the sword fight scene in the forge.

    Or perhaps one of the remastered Star Wars films.

    I tested a Loewe Spheros with the start sequence to Spiderman. MY DID IT STRUGGLE!

    This is really tricky stuff for an LCD.

    Fifth Element where she jumps from the building. This is enough to confuse most normal tv's, let alone an LCD/Plasma.

    I'll be taking couple of DVD's when I finally get round to viewing a few screens and your comments where one of the main reasons why I selected that film as well.

    Trouble is, I have the R1 Suberbit and i'm not sure i'd get to see it if i strolled into my local Jessops ;)

    French film 'Taxi' is pretty smart.






    Plus cheap too at only £3.99 (or along with Taxi 2 for £6.99) at HMV.

    Get a copy of Hero. Some fast scenes, very colorful and it'll highlight a bad display.

    I would definately use Master and Commander. I think it's scene 2 where the man gets the chicken from a cage then you see pippin steering (sorry, I dont know their real names :blush: ). If the screen isn't setup right or isn't such a good screen the skin tones will be totally crap. Also LOTR:fellowship on the scene when they're running down the stairs to the Bridge in moria. If the screen isn't that good or not setup right the dark background will look cartoony. I wouldn't use cartoons or matrix films since they look good on most screens.
