<h2>HDTV, Check. Great Sound System, Check. Prepare to Show Off!</h2><br><br> After you're lucky enough to pull together the moola to buy the components of a great home theater, you know you'll want to demonstrate its finer points to your buddies.<br><br> And let's face it — [[xref:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099685/|Goodfellas|Goodfellas]] may be a great film, but it won't have people oohing and ahhing about the fantastic picture and booming surround sound.<br><br> I've put together ten titles with spectacular scenery, great action, and aggressive, sub-woofer-heavy surround sound — the perfect movies for showing off your HDTV, sound system, and (if you have one) new Blu-ray player. I've also recommended one or two scenes in each film that will really wow the audience.<br><br> The first three — "Baraka," "2001: A Space Odyssey," and "The Dark Knight" — are all shot at least in part in large film formats and vividly show what Blu-ray can do. Consider these strictly BD-only demos.<br><br> The next four — "Casino Royale" (2006 version), "Live Free, Die Hard," "The Fifth Element," and "Wall-E" — will impress your friends even on DVD, although the Blu-ray versions will impress them considerably more.<br><br> The last three titles — "Chicken Run," "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark," and "Richard III" (the 1995 version) aren't yet out in Blu-ray, but they show what a DVD can do on a widescreen TV and a good sound system.<br><br> Of course, you don't want to buy a disc for one great scene, so I've stuck to good movies — ones that have enjoyed either popular success or rave reviews. Several recent blockbusters are here, but also a cult favorite, a classic, a documentary, and even some Shakespeare. So after you've wowed them with a great scene, you can entertain them with the whole flick.
