I tried streaming to my PS3 a 1080p 60fps coldplay performance from SNL episode 34. Just wanted to test how 60fps plays. The video plays just great and it even has dolby 5.1 sound encoded in it. Sounds excellent.
TIP - Only thing is if you want to get true 60fps out, disable all noise reduction on the ps3 AV menu

A must try is "Himalayas" by Michael Palin. It is a 6 DVD set from BBC. The everest and mountain peaks looks astounding.
"Finding Nemo" and "Incredible" look just great.

Imax - Coral reef adventure
Awesome scenes, especially scenes of the 2 guys flying over the mountains alongside the sea coast in a motorized hand glider
Imax - Amazing Caves
Good video, and very good surround sound.
Imax - Amazon.
Great video, Awesome surround sound in a scene where a train winding up the mountains goes through a tunnel.

Don't have a LCD currently, but what the hack, I still enjoy the followings on my CRT,
1. LOTR- specially the war scene at Gondor on part 3..
2. Cars - the drive by Salley Carrera and Lightning Mcqueen on the hills, awesome visuals. Many other scenes are also great.
3. Saving Private Ryan - The D-day scene, that's just blow you apart. Actually I kinda feel like being there.
4. Pirates of Caribbean - looks really good.
5. X-Men - few scenes looks really good.
6. Transformer - watched a full HD version at a friend's place. Mind blowing.
I was kinda disappointed with Matrix on my HT, we were awed by the sound when we've seen it for the first time when it was released. May be the expectation was set too high but also this DVD was not a original DVD. So may be the sound was not of good quality(picture quality was top notch still). I was trying to find out a original Matrix DVD recently but all places were out of stock.

hmm, nice selections and hardware you guys have! while we're at it, I don't have an HD LCD just yet, but do have the following vids that I would recommend:
1) 2008 Beijing Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies in HD (surprised no one's mentioned these yet!)
2) Pink Floyd - Pulse Concert (HD is rare to find, although the SD version with good sound is just as amazing - one of the best and most imitated light and sound shows first performed in London, 1994)
3) Animatrix - Animated background stories of the Matrix movies series. Amazing anime done by the big guys in Japan!
And as far as games go:
4) Halo 2 and 3 (Xbox 360)
5) Half Life 2 and above (PC - output signal streamed to TV)
(The immersive (?) atmosphere of these games is just amazing, even more so on an HTS)
6) Need for Speed Carbon (for the night visuals)

Hey guys. Since all of you are apparently using blue ray discs, which player do you suggest I go for? My Panasonic HTS is 6 years old and does not play blue rays. Is there any you guys suggest, without substituting my HTS, but as an appendage to it?

Air Force One.
The scene where the plane tries to make an emergency landing in Rammstein Air Force base and then takes off again is superb.
Even better is the scene before this when all the fighter jets are scrambled to escort Air Force One. And when they zoom around the aricraft to take up positions sounds beautiful in surround sound.

edit - I am using a lot of blurays no doubt, but a lot my movies are also full hd vob/avi/wmv/mkv files and all I do is dump these files on the PS3 to enjoy 1080/720p video and 5.1 audio !!
@nikhil - yep agreed thats a awesome sequence

As a matter of fact any movie is interesting when watched in Blueray quality and on a decent flat panel.
That too on a PV80, it is real treat for eyes. With blue-ray (played from laptop itself), PV80 has exceeded my expectation. Planning to get a PS3 soon. I miss Dolby/DTS when I play from laptop.
The most recent movies I watched are 10000BC and Fashion with blue-ray copy.
Somehow I felt IMAX copes have better sound effect than blue-ray. Is that true? Do they have additional sound effects to match the IMAX experience?
And a must watch on big flat panel is BBC's Planet Earth series. Amazing is the least I can say about it.
