Revenge Of The Sith, the space battle at the start was brilliant for the surround sound!

also LOTR

Black Hawk Down is excellent for the surround sound.
The Street race scene from The Fast and the Furious is good too.

There's a certain scene in Dog Soldiers that will certainly be enhanced with digital surround sound...

Hehe, yeah, that's the one. I had my brother around a while ago, and stuck it on. He leapt out of the chair when that scene played. Laughed my head off, I did.
