Your picks of BEST 5.1 sound DVD for home theater testing

hi, guys and gals, long time no see!

Haven't posted here for a long long time. In the past 1 year I haven't been really tracking DVD. Just curious, what would be your picks of best 5.1 sound DVDs for home theater testing purposes, especially for DVDs released in the past year (2003-2004)?? Thanks!
