Which DVD 1st?

Hi All,

My new projector should be here shortly....my question is...which DVD should I break it in with?

I'm thinking: Gladiator, The Matrix or Lord of the Rings. Soemthing with some action, good sound and visually stunning.

What do you think? What are your recommendations?

I'll suggest Gladiator. Great movie, outstanding sound, and a gorgeous video transfer.

The Gladiator transfer is soft and the projector will show off how shoddy the SFX work was (little blocks for heads in the crowd).

How about Star Wars: Episode II for the transfer, or Lawrence of Arabia for a film that needs to be seen on as big of a screen as possible.

The LOTR: EE transfer was quite good, too.

Se7en: 2-disc Platinum Series has the best film transfer I've ever seen, and an incredible DTS track.
