Hi all! New GE SuperSat Cinema 50 owners here and we're absolutely loving them! We originally decided to get these because they were wife friendly and had great reviews. The wife was so impressed with the sound that she up and decided to host a party just for these babies.
Ok. Enough chit chat and onto the important question at hand:
Anybody have any suggestions for movie demos? Our dealer demo'd Monsters University and I was blown away so we need more of similar quality. Thanks all!

Master and Commander, The Far Side of the World is not only an excellent movie but the battle out of the fog at the beginning of the movie has to be heard.

This is always the first bluray I put in to acid test any configuration change in my home theater. The battle is outstanding, but I like the under deck sequences too. Much less overt than explosions and debris flying by - the subtlety of the ambient sounds really makes you feel like you're inside the ship. The waves hitting the sides of the boat, the above deck footsteps, things swinging and creaking - really feels immersive.

House of the Flying Daggers (Chinese - has english dub, but use the subtitled setup for the best audio)- very cool scene in a bamboo forest.
