there is really no other way to watch a concert but in HD. I just saw a red hot chili peppers concert in 720p and a john mayer concert in 1080p (where the light is - bluray) and the experience is truly awesome

I saw the following over the weekend in 1080p and dolby/dts 5.1
1) Aviator (leo dicaprio playing howard hughes) - this is an awesome movie to watch (a tad long) both for the stunning plane scenes and sounds, especially when the crashes happen, the sound really moves around the setup.
2) Italian Job (the original one - hdtv print) - no big deal, but did enjoy the sounds of the old minis
3) Italian Job (mark wahlberg) - excellent watch on a good setup, especially if you like the sounds of tuned minis
4) Saving Private Ryan - if you like war movies, try and get hold of an hd print of this and you will suprised with the bullets whizzing around you on a good HT setup.

Visually Stunning movies/documentaries
I know we've many threads on movies where mostly we rate the movies that we've seen. Recently after buying a plasma and enjoying the stunning visuals that some movies bring home through their awesomest of the awesome scenes. And add to that I've followed a link about top 10 visually stunning movies here: Unreality - The 10 Most Visually Stunning Movies of the Last 10 Years | (I'm not saying that the list posted in this link is absolute but just posted it as a pointer)
So I would like to know from our members which are the movies that you think is a visually stunning movie? Which contains exotic locals, mind blowing graphics or special effects that moves you to pick that DVD again and again. The movie need not be a great movie story-wise but has to be visually stunning. Please do share your thoughts.
As for my list I found following visually stunning :
1. LOTR - All of them are stunning. Those graphics just titillates the visual senses.
2. Cars - specially the scene where the Porche and McQueen go for a drive.
3. Kabul Express - For those beautifuls sceneries of Afghanistan.
4. Rang-e-khoda (Colors of Paradise) - Iranian film and never knew that Iran has such beautiful places.
5. The scenes in "What dreams may come" have been processed in a different way and they looked dreamy.
Few more like Lakshya & Paap for Ladakh scenes and Matrix too for it's visual effects can be added to the list.
Please share your visually stunning movies.
Note to Mods: I tried to find out if there is any such threads existing but unable to find any. If there is any then please merge with that thread.

I agree with several of the above choices. LOTR, What Dreams May Come and Saving Private Ryan are all visually stunning. The Mongol is incredible as well and I'm waiting for the last two parts of that trilogy. The others I would like to add to that are
Troy (imagery was amazing even if the movie was nothing special -- special mention to the scene with the greek fleet of ships covering the entire expanse of the sea)
March of the Penguins
Earth (Its a documentary by BBC made in 2007 and is stunning)
Wall-E (at times you forget it is CGI until you see the humans)
300 (A bit over the top in terms of the action but considering that it was entirely made on green screen makes it even more incredible)
Thats all I can think of for now but will add more later
