We just watched the new Star Trek movie... 134" (16:9) just doesn't cut it. When I do the theater we are going at least 150" (2.35:1).
Might rent this one tonight before buying it. We'll have to tolerate it on our 60" plasma

I think I'll wait to upgrade my display until UHD/4K equipment comes down in price and more content is available. Of course, by then I'm sure I will have found something else to spend the money on...

Sheesh!!!!!!i could only dream of 120" screen and your talking 150"?! That would be awesome!
Normally when I see a movie in the theater and then watch it at home I am just as satisfied... Last night I was left wanting a bigger screen. I have not felt this before... Maybe it just means this movie really is meant for a really big screen.

How far away do you sit from your screen?

We watched "Saving Private Ryan". This is an excellent movie to help showcase your speakers. With the bullets flying around and all the D-Day activities on the beach. Just an amazing movie! Highly recommended.

Wow that's big. 50.5 degrees viewing angle, and the 150" diagonal would be 55 degrees. Wow

Scratch that. My bad. The 134" diagonal is 44 degrees, and the 150" diagonal is 49 degrees (assuming a 16x9 AR). Sorry.

Somehow yet again I was able to convince her that Star Trek would be the better watch. She really enjoys watching movies in 3D. I would suspect Pitch Perfect will be watched this week at some point.
Embarrassed to admit it, but pitch perfect was pretty funny

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Fugitive 20th year anniversary. Picture was great. Sound was very disappointing. Would have thought the bus and train crashes would have had some great bass in DTS-Ma, but next to nothing. Big disappointment. Still worth the $13 though IMHO
