    Background - just got my new home cinema system last week, Denon 1804 amp, JM Lab Sib/Cub speakers, totally amazed with it all, and..........

    The missus wants me to give her a Xmas prezzie list, so i would love to hear your opinions/recommendations for films that have great 5.1 soundtracks. So far I've only watched Saving Private Ryan since getting my system, which was incredible as far as sound goes, and a pretty great film anyway IMHO.

    So then, I can't give mine cos only watched 1 filum so far, but please let me know your top 3 films on DVD, with the emphasis being on great sound, but obviously the actual film being great would be good too!

    Has anyone seen Dragonheart - the R1 DTS only version. Not sure if its still available but truly fantastic sound. The storyline is a bit flaky though.

    I've got both the DD and DTS versions and can say the DTS version is not as good as the DD version!
