Best Sound from a dvd movie, your picks
As I have mentioned in many previous forums, I particularly love DTS soundtrack on many available movies on dvd. Here are some of my fave movies that produces some of the best sound on dvd. What's you fave?

Rush Hour 2: Infinifilm (DTS)
Speed: 5 Star Collection (DTS)
Behind Enemy Lines: SE (DTS)
Top Gun: SE (DTS)

There are others I like, but can't remember them.

DVD's audio is worthless if you don't have a good surround sound system, but here's my pick from my collection (in no particular order):

Bad Boys (2)
Terminator (2 and 3)
Black Hawk Down
Heat (2 disck special edition)....the gun fighting scene at the end is amazing, just crank up the volume and you'll see you're neighbors duck!

Yeah, I agree there, Tom...you actually get the sensation of being on, and under, the deck of the boat.
But one great sounding disc that no one has mentioned is painfully obvious, especially this week... Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones, overall the best sounding and looking disc that I can think of right off the top of my head.
