1. The Dark Knight (Dolby TrueHD 5.1, Dolby Digital 2.0)
The Dark Knight remains a quintessential purchase for Blu-ray audiophiles. The film's distinctive bass-heavy score sets the tone perfectly and pumps you up for the scenes ahead. The psychotic laugh of the Joker is equally impressive, while dialogue remains crystal clear throughout.
The disc's audio engineering rarely draws attention to itself for the sake of it, but instead plays a backseat to the astonishing visuals. It is a rare feat in subtlety that makes the film all the more immersive. That said, there are still plenty of blockbuster moments to show off your sound system with – the destruction of the semi-trailer is particularly explosive.
