Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I dont tend to read much, unless on a forum, and after seeing the trilogy I went out and bought the books. Just a great series I thoroughly enjoyed.

And Dirty Dancing is a great classic.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Oblivion with the kids last night. It was much better than I expected, and it was not unpleasant to watch it for a second time. I almost never watch a movie twice, at least until enough time has gone by that I forget most of it.

What was interesting about this viewing was that I watched it the first time at Sonnie's when we were there for the speaker listening event. Sonnie has a truly outstanding theater. I on the other hand have a 50" PDP, 5 in wall speakers and 2 12" IB woofers in the ceiling. Not bad sounding at all, but nothing impressive. I expected to be completely disinterested. I was pleasantly surprised that the film held my interest on the smaller screen and without bone jarring bass.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I would kill to hear and see something like Oblivion at Sonnie's HT!!!... I always thought I did a good job, but he can give the bass and HT nuts on AVS a good run for their money (except maybe BassThatHZ or Popalock lol)

I watched The Darkest Hour last night. Enjoyed the deep dark colors, but the film left me hanging for more.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Just sat through The Watch--Ben Stiller and company. That movie stunk up the whole house.

I briefly considered getting electro-shock therapy, just to delete that movie from my brain.
But if I don't remember seeing it, I might end up watching it again, only to have to delete it from my brain again and I hate it when that happens.

Can't wait for that one. My daughter (21) thinks that's the funniest movie ever made.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Just finished watching the new Star Trek movie - I actually enjoyed it very much. It had enough of the old ST tie-ins, but did a good job of putting their own spin on it.

But, could Abrams have possibly used any more light flares? I think every sequence of the ending credits had at least one...

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

yeah, the lens flares get annoying really fast. I hate to see the amount of lens flares the lightsabers are gonna have in episode 7
