Best Movie Player?

Heading out on vacation on Friday and would like to load my IPad 2 with some movies. Which movie player is the best? My stuff will be mainly in .avi format. Thanks!

Could you provide a link? I searched it on iTunes and came up with zilch.
"AV Player Start"
"AV Player"
"AVPlayer"

I recommend trying

Azul media player
-Supports all subtitle formats
-Can change audio tracks now since the last update!

rushplayer
-Has the BEST video playback in the appstore but lacks support for some popular subtitle formats
-Use this if you don't require subtitles or audio track switching functionality.

AV Player
- Decent media player
- Doesn't support all subtitle formats
- Cant change audio tracks( correct me if I am wrong)
- Seems to be Azul media player's poorer step brother/clone

Aceplayer
-Only player that lets you manually choose both subtitle and audio tracks
-doesn't utilize the 2 cores of the ipad 2 i think
-Free! at least it was when i downloaded it

I just tried Gplayer @@. I think I might have found my favourite movie player after burning through 7-8 of them in the appstore.

Yes AV player runs decently..but azul,gplayer and rushplayer have better video playbacks. ( at least that's what I felt when I played my 720 p mkv files !)
