Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I liked the new War of the Worlds less than the original 1953 version. There is a certain gritty edgy feel with the original that isn't prominent in the newer film. Plus even though the effects were made in the 50's, it's a much stronger effect than in the newer version. The old one is not on Blu-Ray yet though.

Last night we watched Disney's Planes. We thought the movie was fun and had a descent storyline with plenty of humor.

Not a movie, but I started watching the BBC show/miniseries Sherlock, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. I've only seen the first two episodes, but I'm definitely hooked. Great show and I recommend it If you've got Netflix, it's available there.

Saw 47 Ronin last night. Enjoyed it, just wished I could have watched it at home instead.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched the anniversary addition of the sound of music with my two daughters. It is a huge improvement over the old DVD I had. The 2:20:1 aspect ratio was a bit strange but once I forced it to 2:35:1 it looked great. Inky blacks and nice color given the year this movie was made.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

The Conjuring

WOW, I am not a big fan of these types of movies but this one hits a home run. And for those fans of home theater, hold your hat on.

Good Listening
