Default The BEST Audio Quality Blu-ray Megathread

Hey guys, this is thread is probably a retread of previous ones but I'm hurrying. I just got my Onkyo 605 today and Iam almost done hooking it up. My family will surely be curious to hear it play a good BD with lossless audio, so I was wondering what you think the best one is. I will give you a list of my BDs w/ lossless and then I will go finish setting it up while wait for input. Here they are, (not many):

Rambo
Batman Begins
Cloverfield
I Am Legend
There Will be Blood
300
Pan's Labryinth


Wow, a lot fewer than I thought, haha. My first instinct was Rambo since ...it's Rambo... and shit tends to happen when he's around. But it's a demo for my family so I was hoping one of these may stand out as having a lot of subtle surround noises that come through very clearly and significantly better than with lossy tracks. Anyway, if any of these and certain scenes within them stand out, let me know. Thanks, guys.

I like Rambo the best out of what you have that I have seen... I have heard people say how good Cloverfield is though too. Rambo with all the gunfire will be impressive for you.

WTF?!?!?! '3:10 To Yuma' has DTS HD MA 7.1!!! It kicks some serious ass... especially when that train pulls into the station at the end.

Isn't it PCM 7.1? Anyway I recommend Cloverfield. It's earth shattering.

Yup... That's what I get for typing in haste!

I knew it was PCM but typed DTS for some reason. OOPS!

Question The Best Audio Quality Blu-ray Megathread

OK, so I've got a receiver and some speakers in a 5.0 set-up.

I've been watching my Blu's now, finally able to get some serious hi-quality sound out of my PS3 and I've definitely been enjoying the difference.

I'm in the middle of watching Blade Runner and my ears absolutely LOVED it when Deckerd was shooting at Zhora...

Please list your favorite audio moments in Blu-ray land. I'd love to hear about your "Holy CRAP, did you hear that?" moments...

Cheers, Doc.

First battle scene in Master and Commander and the Transformers sweep.

You'll want a sub for that one though.

I love the oil-rig explosion in "There Will Be Blood"

Also the Shot-gun into the ceiling during Ratatouilli was pretty FAST BASS for my subwoofer..... the best part was how articulate it was.
