Akira as it's the first blu-ray in 192 kHz/24-bit in Dolby TrueHD 5.1, and a pretty good movie if you like sci-fi/anime.

Zybar's recommendations all great
top of my list or near as well! 

we must think alike

love Matthews / Reynolds and Jeff Beck most of those mentioned

# means not pristine (blu ray quality but tolerable) visuals but still great sonic  - All recorded on film

Talking Heads Stop Making Sense!!! the sound best I heard!
Yes Live in Montreaux!
Zeppelin Song Remains the Same #
Elton John 50 years (title?) - the rare killer old stuff
Incubus - Red Rocks
Neil Young Box! oops DVD-A  - still top notch
Steely dan Gaucho & Fagen Nightly also DVD-A
The Last Waltz
Queen Rock Motreal
Moody Blues
The Who Kilburn!!!
THe Who - Ilse of Wight #
Hendrix - Woodstock#
Amadeus - the music
forgetting others
I have some more but less my musical taste or material covered
(Stevie Wonder Comes to Mind)
many killer dvd's as well!!!



have fun get an Oppo Blu Ray (won't be sorry)  and netflick rentals
 or buy (some now inexpensive amazon or at best buy) 

blu rays sound just killer on the salks
more concerts to be released

I find the Blu-Ray reviews at High Def Digest help narrow my list for rent or purchase. :thumb:

The Hurt Locker.
Amazing audio effects that puts you squarely in the "situation" The Salk HT2 TL's deftly reproduce the wide range effects - from dialogue to incoming choppers. :thumb:

For the movies side:  I am surprised to see no one has recommended Master and Commander yet.

If you just want stunning video and audio then buy The Fall.  The scenes are shot in real world locations(no CGI at all in the movie but 1 scene which is not scenery related).

The DVD of Master and Commander is my demo disk.  The cannon shots in DTS are mind blowing.

 I am listening to the Michael Buble "Caught In the Act" DVD.  It is fantastic.  I see it is also available in Blu-Ray.  I cannot imagine that the Blu-Ray could be bad.

Legends of the Guardian has reference quality audio and video, it's at least as good as Avatar. It's a cute, happy family movie as well - i'd classify it as action/fantasy.

my favorite movie sound track, bar none!   Harold & Maude will be released on Blu-Ray june 12, 2012. features cat steven's finest songs, mostly from Tea for the Tillerman. the synergy between the lyrics and the storyline dont get any better!
a distant second for me would be Snatch or Pulp Fiction - excellent, but wont stir your soul like ruth gordon as Maude.

Beck - Sea Change [Blu-ray Audio]   I have been interested to see if this album on SACD is as good as they say but couldn't handle the asking price. It just came out on Blu-ray for less than $17.
I've never heard any of his music but even at age 68 I thoroughly enjoy this album from beginning to end. Demo quality audio to boot. :thumb:

Edit: I may have been a little over exuberant with my appraisal of this album as a demo due to my surprise that it didn't totally suck, and that I actually enjoyed it listing to it from beginning to end upon the first sitting.
Demo quality?? Maybe not.
Nonetheless it is well recorded even though a little on the laid back and somber side and not really what I would use to demonstrate the capabilities of my system. Most of the surround channels are used for sound effects and such, which is fine, but I most enjoy the surrounds when used to create an ambiance that gives me an audience perspective when listening to music.
Of course if you happen to be a Beck fan .....
