Movies are many, but some I can recall are LOTR, Mission, Last of the Mohicans, Forrest Gump, Fargo, Dark Knight, Abyss. Repelling was Apocalypto. Please this is my view, and some exclusions/inclusions may not sit well with others.

Not sure if it was mentioned before - A good movie for its effects and sound is "The Incredible Hulk"
I just finished watching it and its truly worthy to be in any HD collection!

Where are you guys getting all these BD and HD movies? I see discussions around variety of movies here in HD, are all of them available here in India? where are you guys buying them from? or is it possible to rent or something?? Really interested to know the source.

Having said that, i would say 70% of my blurays (especially trilogies, etc) are bought dirt cheap (10-20usd) from the US - hence I have retained two PS3s to play indian and US BD collections - note that BDs have 3 regions - americas/singapore/japan, europes/aussie, piracy countries (india, pakistan, etc)
Another option is digital 1080p or 720p downloads. There are both legal and illegal options available I guess. You can easily find on the net a lot of HDTV recordings of concerts or discovery programs Ofcourse your BD player needs to be able to play HD files (the PS3 plays most HD files - mpg, ts, m2ts, avi etc)

I shall try Jayanagar Landmark, I normally go to Landmark at forum and most of the time spent is at books section, I shall find out if these BDs and HD movies are available at Landmark, Forum. My simple setup has got 3LCD RPTV, Xbox 360, Philips 5996, Onkyo HT and I recently bought Xtreamer.
Most of the time, I love watching old hindi and some english movies, but I also like to watch movies with good / great Picture and Sound effect.

and yes forum landmark has plenty of bd movies

Yes, my Xbox and Philips DVD does the streaming but plays very limited no of formats.
Thats the reason, I went with the Xtreamer and my understanding is it should play good no of formats.
Xtreamer does support max of 1920x1080 resolution, however my TV is HD ready and going to play them in 1080i I believe, but that should not make a huge difference between 1080P and 1080i as long as I have good viewing distance (thats my understanding).
Xtreamer should help me with various file formats - variety of HD files, such as TP, TS ,TRP and M2T,M2TS.MTS files, but also MPEG1/2/4 , Divx (3/4/5/6), Xvid, DAT, ISO, DVD (VOB, IFO) and MKV(X.264),AVC HD, WMV9, ASF, H.264,MOV,MP4, RMVB, FLV, etc. They will continue to add more formats with the upcoming firmware if there are any left.
I read people ripping BDs and playing them using Xtreamer. Setting up a NAS will be the next project so I can dump all my DVDs (some old CDs) to it for convenient playing.
The only thing is I will have to rip the BDs and other disks to my HDD to play them using xtreamer - It can access the computer DVD drives over home network and stream media directly from there, that is one thing I have yet to test / verify.
Sorry for OT on this one, I shall continue to discuss media with good PQ/SQ here.

My Favs to watch on my Onkyo 5.1 HT (Standard 29" CTV & DVD)
1. The Rock
2. Air Force One (as mentioned by Nikhil - the fighter scrabble is a perfect test for 5.1)
3. The Matrix
4. Face Off
5. Mission Impossible II
6. House of Flying Daggers (Fantastic Visuals and Sound)
Is there a place in Bangalore to rent BD. In the old days when DVDs used to cost Rs 2000+ a few places used to rent them out. Is the same possible with BDs.
