Default Your TOP 5 scenes: In terms of best audio track you've ever heard on BR

Extremely precise audio with incredibly detailed and refined bass. These are my top 5 that give my HT an intense workout.

(All 5 are very close)

1) Batman Begins - Fight in the shrine and final fight on the train.
2) Cloverfield - when the building starts to collapse and everyone runs for cover, HOLY JEBUS!!!
3) Max Payne - Shootout in the office building and final 20mins, WOW!
4) Taken - every single fight scene, amazing ref quality disc!
5) Faceoff - final fight, pretty much the last 15mins.

Honourable mentions: I-robot, Quantum of Solace, Matrix.

Cloverfield definitely wins in the subwoofer category though The Dark Knight would come in second.

Don't forget 'Band of Brothers.' There are many awesome scenes in there.

Transformers.....from the 1:42-2:12 mark........the finest 30 minutes in HT audio Turn this up to Reference level (or a db or two beyond) and strap in......pray your house does not fall on top of you!!!

So many others, but that is one of the first that comes to mind. Hell I have seen 5 in the past week......I could pull out amazing demo material from each of the Underworld movies, A Bugs Life and Taken (this audio track kicks ass!!!!)

Definitely Band of Brothers, pretty much any scene when mortars are exploding. The other one I really like is during Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when Harry and Dumbledore are fighting Voldemort in the Ministry towards the end of the movie. When all the glass windows shatter, it sounds AWESOME!!! That's the scene I always show people when showing off my system.

In no particular order.

1.Quantum of solace :I think the whole thing sounds awsome.
2.Hellboy 2:The part near the start where he is throwing his stick around sounds amazing and the whole film is pretty good.
3.Matrix


That is all i can think of of the top of my head.

Can't think of specific scenes but in terms of films, the HD soundtrack on Blade Runner is striking. The ambient/background/surround effects are particularly effective, and though many of the sounds in the film are naturally dated, the movie is overall an aural pleasure.
Baraka, while sharing nothing in common content-wise with Blade Runner, does share the distinction of being rather stunning from an audiovisual perspective.
Layer Cake also sounds pretty damn good.

A Bug's Life is pretty darn good. I don't think there were any scenes throughout the movie that didn't utilize the surrounds. And the low end was pretty impressive as well.
