The opening scene of "It's a Bug's Life" when the camera pans in starting with the tree in a distance and zooms in very slowly to the ants working in the grass under the tree. This was one of the hardest scenes in the movie to make and it has a very smooth transition. It was also created completely in the digital rhelm and was transfered digital to digital to the DVD. No analog process whatsoever. What does this mean, you ask? It means there are absolutely NO artifacts on this DVD. If your set shows any, then it is your equipment that isn't working properly, not the DVD. One of the best DVD movies (picture and sound quality) ever made.:D
The oxen move slowly, but the earth is patient.
The opening scene in Back To The Future, where the camera is very slowly panning from left to right. There are dozens of clock faces, the sound should very slowly follow the camera, the ticking of each clock moving. Then it gets to the can opener with the dog food plopping into the bowel. But the precise tracking of the sound is excellent, listen carefully to the individual character of each clock and the agreement between picture movement and sound movement.
Also, in Top Gun, the scene where Tom and Kelly are in the elevator. The elevator door opens up and another officer steps in, interrupting their conversation. The sound of the opening and closing elevator door is perfect. It moves from right to left, tracking perfectly with the visual image.
Just about any scene from Whole Nine Yards, great for dialogue.
"There can be only one!"
The blue screen you get when the DVD player is off.
I believe there was a scene in Amistad (since I rented this months ago, I can't double check the scene or if I spelled the name of the movie right) where someone walks across an empty, otherwise silent courtroom. The footsteps and their echoes were phenomenal, in a quiet sort of way.
