Showcase DVDs for Home Theater

Each time we've changed our surround sound system, we've watched Twister -- yeah, not the best movie, but the sound effects are excellent and we can compare. However, I've seen a number of "recommended" DVDs to show off a new home theater, including Saving Private Ryan and Master and Commander -- both with fabulous sound.

So, in my search to find other movies for the marquee when we get things set up, I tracked down a list of DVDs that are fabulous in a home theater setup. We're going to be very busy.
