The new 2012 Total Recall is pretty spectacular. Way better than the crappy original that the Governator starred in.

Fantastic visuals and impressive cast. I have watched this one over and over again...LOL

To me Saving Private Ryan and Gladiator has awesome sound esp the opening scenes in SPR and also in the end,that 20mm machine gun sounds terrific.I've also. Enjoyed Terminator 2 Judgement Day Skynet Edition and Avatar.

911 is not inline 6 but a flat 6 ie. horizontally opposed pistons like the Subaru flat 4 engine.

Opus Arte have two samplers, one opera and another string quartets.  Exceptional sound from both these.  Not movies though.  Watched a blu-ray re-issue of West Side Story from 1959 and this has excellent sound.  Image was a little dark I thought.

For me it has to be Debbie Does Dallas :BWAHAHAH: The unmistakable music of the late 70's. That "twaai, chooka, twaai, chooka, twaai" sound. Just brilliant, and don't forget the other various stereo effects  :BWAHAHAH: which create such a lovely ambiance to the scenes.

But on a serious not, M&C is surely one to go for, as mentioned the creaking woodwork is amazing. The canonball firing is not just a explosion but a very perculilar thumping bass sound reminiscent of the canons used during that period. Or was it just my setup :thinking:

+1 for Saving Private Ryan and also one to look out for is Platoon.

And please gents, don't get ripped off with rediculous prices on these bluray's. Both these movies are at Musica for R99 each

Just making sure. They are talking about the movie that starts with the D-day landings in Normandy, not "Shaving Ryan's Privates" the 'other' version.

Only thing I watched on Blou-Straal was WAR featuring Jason Statham and lots of Yakuza and Triads.
Recapping of vintage equipment isn't restoration. By definition, restoration means returning to it's original condition.
