Most impressive Blu-Ray's???

I was wondering what you guys think are the best looking blu-ray movies out there?



Just got a new Sharp Aquos 60" LCD, 120hz, 500k:1 contrast... Awesome Black Friday deal at Best Buy, only $800!

i personally hate Blu-Ray. The detail is too sharp. It distracts me from the movie. However, I have heard that Avatar (both movies) are absolutely amazing on Blue-Ray.

I have seen Inception, Transformers, and Limitless in blu-ray on my 52" and they looked great. Got to have a good surround sound system or blu-ray movies are no good. I say that because you expect great picture quality but you don’t get the full effect unless you have a 5.1 system hooked up or better. I have a 7.2 system and those movies were awesome!

Most of the Marvel superhero movies look pretty badass in blu ray.

I agree with the other guy though, its almost to much detail. On a lot of movies it just looks like you are on a movie set watching it being filmed. It really picks up light contrast.


That being said, the new remastered blu ray star wars looks absolutely stunning on my 240hz 42" tv. A friend of mine brought it over...but now I want to buy it if I can get it reasonably. But I'm also not a star wars fan boy annoyed by his cgi enhancements.

I agree with the other movies listed, but also think that Tron Legacy looks pretty damn good, and the sound is amazing too. DTS-HD is the shit with Infinity\Polk surround.

89 F-150 5.0l AOD 2x4, 3.55 LS 84,XXX MilesGT40Ps, Roller, MAF, Hedman LTs, 3g Alt, Big 3+ Upgrade, Rerouted PCV, Dual Taurus E-fans, Sixlitre Tune-up, Explorer Injectors, Rubber Vacuum System, Tranny cooler, Remote Tranny filter, Saginaw P\S swap, F350 Brakes, Autopage Remote Start, 9007 conversion, LED conversion, so much more.

My favorite Blu-rays in the looks department so far are: Kingdom of Heaven Director's Cut, Transformers, Braveheart, Last of the Mohicans.

Everything I have read online says that Transformers and The Dark Knight are the best... I think 300 is right up there too.

My parents think that blu-ray is no better than regular DVD, so i want to get something that will blow their minds the first time they see a Blu-Ray.



EDIT: I've also read that OLD movies turned into blu-ray are way better quality than brand new movies could ever be, because the old movies were filmed in the old school 8mm film and when 8mm is turned digital, there is so many more pixals to up the quality... Specifically they were talking about Casa Blanca and The Wizard of Oz

Pair a Blu-ray player with a decent television and a good surround sound system and no one in his right mind can say that Blu-ray is no better than DVD.

True, but they may be talking from experiencing it on a 37" or 42" TV.

BluRay doesn't get really amazing until 50" or so

And my vote is for Serenity. Awesome movie, awesome sound, all more awesome in 1080p and 7.1

I bought a Jeep, lesson learned...

Pretty sure Serenity was released in 5.1.

You are indeed correct.

I just looked at the box.

I can end this thread now. AVS Forums keeps a painfully detailed thread of the best-of-the-best.

Damn!! That is one HELLUVA list! That's crazy that they put Toy Story 3 at the top of the list...

My only problem with that list is the top 17 movies are all animated (with the exception of Avatar which is still mostly animated), so animated movies kinda have to be better looking than live action.

Austin the 8mm was what my dad used around the house in the 50s and 60s movies were 35-70mm.

I am curious how the old movies compare however. I know when I enlarge something from film with a projector it does much better than if it gets digitized first then enlarged with a computer. Maybe I am not doing it right, or do not have the big buck equipment

TS3 makes sense because it was made for Blueray
