Sorry but nothing could draw you into "The Hours". By far the most boring, drawn out movie to come out of the industry in this decade. I love movies and pay special attention to all movie soundtracks, and this movie just didn't cut it.

It is not much of a soundtrack for the sound effects, but I love the music soundtrack (Kronos Quartet) and how it syncs with the film.

And several people in the room literally screamed, because it felt like the dinosaur was right in the room with us!

Many people have never even thought about this... but the truth is that a well-designed home theater can actually seem more realistic than a movie theater... simply because the shakes and rattles inside the house, make the impact scenes even more believable than when we're inside the rock-solid movie theaters.

You know David I never thought about it either. But, in your home, its more intimate, in most cases smaller than the theater (the room) and less problems to deal with. Sounds like you had a very good and impressive demo.
Definitely, write your vote in!!

Another soundtrack that comes to mind, back in my Harvey Electronic days was Terminator 2. If memory serves, this film broke new ground in surround sound, and was every salesmens favorite demo disc. I haven`t watched in a while due to that!!

Kill Bill 1 and 2 have pretty damn amazing soundtracks in surround. Especially the scene where Uma Thurman fights the Crazy 88's. that is one of the best demo scenes for picture and surround sound.
