I use reversal film almost exclusively in 4x5 and 8x10 sheet sizes.  I agree that reversal film is quite luscious (when exposed correctly and color balanced correctly.)  It's unfortunate (for me) that 8x10 is so expensive and also that E-6 film is now disappearing.  Yes, it's amazing stuff to look at on a light box.  I once had an exhibition that included five 8x10 transparencies mounted on the wall on battery operated 5000K lightbox style wooden frames.  Not quite to the scale of Jeff Wall's famous and gigantic 'lightbox prints' but effective nonetheless.  Jeff Wall Museo interview
