What are your go-to demo scenes for showing the real power of 4K HDR, or for testing 4K displays?

Here is my partial list of some of my favorite HDR:

Mad Max: Fury Road - “Entering the Sand Storm”
Lucy -“The final Transformation”
Passengers - “The Red Giant”
The Great Gatsby - “Nick’s First Party”
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - “The Mighty Roar”
Battleship - “U.S.S. Missouri”
Atomic Blonde - “Satchel”
Baywatch - the beginning with the sun rising at the Beach
Baby Driver - “The Bellbottoms Bank Job”
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children - “Time Loop”
Wonder Woman - “Diana Needs a New Outfit”
Ghostbusters (2016) - “The Aldridge Mansion”
The Martian - “Mark Wakes Up Alone”
Murder on the Orient Express - “Bouc and Poirot Discuss Hobbies”

Also, one scene from Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk since it is the only movie that is currently available that is 60fps and will help trouble shoot whether you have 18Gbs capability: “Halftime Flashback”.

I would go with the Starman scene from the Martian. I also really like what I saw on the entire Black Panther transfer as well as Thor.
