Default Sample / Test Disc

Does anyone know of a sample disc or a configuration disc? I picked up a player for my dad and knowing him, he'll want to show off the technology to anyone who comes over to his house. But I don't want him putting in the same boring movie each time. Any ideas on something that's designed specifically to show off the quality of blu ray?

If your Dad, or his friends, are into Opera/Classical the recently reviewed The Blu-ray Experience - Opera & Ballet Highlights is a great demo disc of a different sort. Both PQ and AQ are top-notch. And for you...the price is dirt-cheap! Here's the link.

DTS did a Blu-Ray demo disc. It's pretty cool. Go to their website and order it or check eBay.
