    Tron: Legacy
    The Fifth Element (the newer releases, not the very first one as it was a S4!7 transfer.. got recalled too)
    Blade Runner
    The Matrix
    Batman Begins and Dark Knight (the latter is amazing on BR)
    Iron Man
    The Watchmen
    Transformers
    Serenity + the Firefly TV series
    Battlestar: Galactica TV series (season 2 and on look amazing while the firsts space shots were grainy)
    Star Wars: The Clone Wars seasons 1 and 2

    Upcoming:
    Lord of the Rings Extended Trilogy (coming June 28, 2011..)
    Star Wars: The Complete Saga (coming September 16, 2011)

    And while the movie may or may not have been crap (depends on who you talk to), Speed Racer is simply one gorgeous film, and especially so on Blu Ray. Best quote: "It's orgasmic eye candy".

    Yeah, yeah.. this is definitely a sci-fi heavy list. There others I can add, like the Planet Earth series and it's like, or The God Father, plus any number of Disney films like Up!, Wall-E, and The Incredibles (out this Tuesday), but.. nah..

    I am a big fan of Blade Runner. I watched about 5 min of the BR edition. I still drool whenever I think of it. It's going to be my first BR.

    Anything Pixar. Battlestar Galactica Razor also looks fantastic. Star Wars The Clone Wars Animated Series. Sin City is about as perfect as a bluray can get. Its audio track = fantastic. I could go on and on but that is where you should start.

    Anyone tried a BR version of Alexander? Yes, I know that Angelina has a Russian accent in that, but it is still a great movie IMO.

    Cannot believe that i forgot to mention Star Trek 2010 that looks awesome in Bluray (you can actually see R2D2 clearly as opposed to the blur he was on DVD)

    And both Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk films

    Apocalypto used to be my BD reference until Avatar came along. The scenes at the temple really show off the format. Toy Story 3 looked really good on BD as well.

    I've heard Star Trek 2010 was one of the best on BR...

    I also agree with Lowfat saying anything Pixar. Desciable Me is great :)

    Saving Private Ryan is a good one to have too I think.

    Thanks guys great list, here's what I got so far:

    Star Wars Episode III
    300
    2001 A Space Odyssey
    2012
    War of the Worlds
    Cloverfield
    Resident Evil Extinction
    V for Vendetta *****
    xXx
    and Sin City *****

    I put stars next to the best. BR makes a damn heck of difference as we've been collecting DVD and VCD versions for years we have dozens of old movies lying around everywhere but the fact that they are not HD+/BR makes me lazy to watch them and i'd rather just sleep. :)

    I recently got The matrix 1 and 3 havent watched them yet, Sunshine (pretty darn good) and apocalype now havent watched it either. Case you have noticed I stoped gaming and now moving towards the living room. We have an old Bravia 2 not bad but its 38" only. Need to go W___I___D___E____R

    basically anything that is animated that is recent (no more then 5 years old....) seems to provide the best blu-ray experience.


    in live action.. anything big box office and sci-fi/fantasy related seems to be the major kickers..

    otherwise many of the old movies or other movies i find to be grainy looking... or poorly formated....

    i've over 100 blu-rays..... but i'd definitely go with the latest avatar collectors eddition and tron legacy as well as star trek 2009...... as for animated.... The guardians of (name can't think of it) with the owls is utterly spectacular in terms of art in motion..... brilliant... specially the ocean tornado scene...... gorgous

    ^^^^^
    Thanks for reminding me:

    Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

    Although it's more for die hard fans, it still looks great on BR.

    Inception!

    I like the Extraction mode "directors commentary/making off" feature on the BR.
