I recently saw a really beautiful high resolution movie on my TV with a friend and it was a stunning experience, both in sound and graphics. 

Perhaps anyone has their own recommendations on movies that really requires a good system?  

The movie I´m talking about now is called Samsara, heres a trailer

Is that a joke? I think you should consider twice before posting like that.

It's a good question. I've just gone from an 11-46 to a 7-55. The difference in quality and detail is beyond subtle. Films I watched out of curiosity have now become spectacles. Prometheus for anyone who has followed the Alien series could have been much better, but as a technical feat on the. 7 it's fantastic.

Last night we watched the Loan Ranger and not only was the quality of the image excellent, but the closing scene with William a Tell playing, sounded amazing too. Some Blurays like Clash of the Titans in my case, are of very poor quality. How do we know what's good quality with Blurays? I can get better quality music, why not better quality DVDs.

For a good quality factual programme, and if you want to see where we live up in Newcastle go to BBC Iplayer and watch Border Country in HD by Rory Stewart. Not only a great programme pictorially, but and as I predict the future PM of our country a very interesting watch.(I live just east of Hexham)

I tend to have a soft spot for movies that offer stunning visual imagery, although too often lately the big name movies are millions and millions for CGI effects wrapped around a mediocre plot and writing.

The Hunger Games is short on special effects but heavy on beautifully filmed woods and outdoor places. Blade Runner is of course both visually stunning and a great movie. The original Alien, and Alien 3, great imagery.

I saw Jarhead recently, kind of a so so film about a bunch of Marines in the Gulf War, it nevertheless had some stunning, if disturbing, imagery. Walking along after Saddam set the oil wells on fire, black from horizon to horizon, flaming oil rigs spewing smoke, and it raining black oil. Some truly gruesome depictions of the aftereffects of air strikes on convoys.

Oblivion had some interesting visuals. Sometimes I call movies that have great visuals but are otherwise bad a guilty pleasure. Like 10,000 BC, great, stunning images, absolutely god awful movie. Stick out tongue

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad

Cool thanks for the tip Chris, I have two of the episodes ready to watch when my Apple TV and BV11 arrive on Saturday. Can't wait.

Always loved wandering around Hexam and Corbridge.

Movie wise on me old BV4 - The Musketeers in HD is a good view Smile

Tron:Legacy. Great effects, plenty of opportunities to appreciate handling of black, and amazing soundtrack. The plot though is nothing to write home about.

When I received my BV11-55 I went out and bought several films which are stunning on the TV. Of note are the last two Batman films, 2001, Prometheus, inception, apocalypse now. I streamed Samsara and I am sure as a BR it would be fantastic. I have to invest in Blade Runner BR, as the plain old DVD does not look that great. Same goes for Akira Kurosawa RAn, which on DVD is a horrible transfer.

Resurrection of a thread.

I am enjoying a new found experience with having fiddle with something on the ATV it now auto-adjusts between speaker settings.

And of course the BL19 is making a BIG difference.

Except I robbed it of its cable to support the Essence.

Still looking for recent recommendations .....
