I was watching CARS from Pixar/Disney this past weekend and I continued to be amazed by the sound authoring/editing of Pixars stuff. It begged the question of the rest of our audiophiles and HT-enthusiasts:
When it comes to surround sound referencing/glory - what movie section do you refer to?
Here's an example breakdown from the top of my head:
Cars - The scene where Lightning McQueen revs his engine to scare the tractor/cows. Most of the racetrack scenes.
Master & Commander - opening battle scene, from the ambient ocean sounds/first canon shot to the fogbank escape - great stuff!
Band of Brothers - part two: Day of Days - Jumping into Normandy
So what's on your list?
