I've seen like 10 different computer5s shown playing the movie Ice Age. Is the movie Ice age, to video what "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" is to fonts?

I don't know, but noticed that the copy of Ice Age 3 I have has a DRM protected wmv file on it. It could be that everybody loves Manny Raymond

CG animation is usually pretty forgiving on lower-spec displays. A few years back Shrek and Antz were popular choices for demos.

I bet Cars would be awesome, too.

We used to play Ice Age 2 on Bluray on all the TVs at the shop I used to work at. Basically, it made cheap TVs look good, and good TVs look even better.
