This thread is intended for people to cite examples of movies that have great stereo only sound, which do not require an av receiver or other equipment to be enjoyed at home, and to articulate their opinions on why , and can include older media formats as well . I am an avid collector of VHS , so have a particular interest in this topic .

The 1994 VHS and Laserdisc of Jurassic Park is the theatrical Dolby Stereo mix. The scene where you see the T.Rex for the first time moves the theater even in the Laserdisc’s PCM stereo.

^ Thanks for the tip , I will have to add that to my collection. I just watched Batman Returns (1992) on VHS and the sound was awesome on it . According to wikipedia ,It was the first film to be announced as released with Dolby SR-D technology (later known as Dolby Digital.

For clarification , My sound system at home is very unconventional …I currently have a 4head HI-FI stereo VCR hooked up to 2 CRT TVs , a 19 inch ,which is hooked up through coaxial and a 13 inch tv/vcr combo hooked up through rca jacks . I have computer speakers hooked up to the smaller tv through the headphone jack and from that , I am running a male to male aux cable to a Sony boombox with a bass reflex sound system . The 19 inch tv has a 2.0 sound bar hooked up to it and is sitting on a desk below the smaller tv .

i’m seen so little pre Dolby Surround films. I honestly cannot think of a film that was in stereo not mono from before 1976 that i’ve seen off the top of my head, i’m sure i’ve seen something but i can’t think of it.
