Hi, can anyone recommend a blu ray movie that demonstrates the 1080p capability of a TV?

The Planet Earth series by the BBC is my vote!

Yep, it appeared at my local Blockbuster (Lower Hutt) a couple of weeks ago and I also saw it in one of the Westfield CD/DVD stores. The camera work (and quality) is stunning but sadly there is no DolbyTrue soundtrack to really show this off.

Nontheless, it is exceptional and well worth checking out.

2001 - A Space Odyssey looks absolutely fantastic on my 42" Panasonic Plasma. I know its an old movie but nonetheless it looks vibrant and amazing.

I guess you mean the re-released version, not the first on that Sony released to coincide with the PS3 release. Not sure what version came out here, but the US first release was so heavily criticised for its PQ that when Sony redid it, they accepted exchanges for those who had the earlier version.

the first Bluray/HDTV thing i saw (well, the first HD thing fullstop, i guess) wa Apocalypto.

blew. my. tiny. little. mind. Such clear jungle, it was like a pane of glass and a rainforrest on the other side.

reccommend AAA+++ would trade again.


...though this was merely my first ever impression... i have come to expect it since, but apocalypto is always the first thing to spring to mind.

Movies like 2001 and the special FX shots in Blade runner were shot in varients of 70mm film, so should look great in HD, more recently any of the PIXAR titles should be a lossless transfer, and when it get re-released on Blu ray ep III  of Starwars should be Stunning.

I'm about to buy Blood Diamond on bluray... with that pricing you can't go wrong! I also have 300 and it is amazing on HD, very much agree with gehanna. I have to say imo I think that buying animation films for bluray is a bit too expensive a thing when the difference is not anywhere near as largely noticed as things like action films. - but this is my opinion only
