I am looking for receiver in the $300 - $500 range. It will be going with a JBL set up EC 25 center, 2xE80 towers, 2xE10 surrounds, and E150P sub. The system will be used 85% for movies. Any suggestions?
85% movies = you don't need anything really super finesse. I'd go cheap:
Onkyo 602, $300
Pioneer 1014, $400
The Pioneer would sound better during the 15% of the time you listen to music, though.
