Universal announced last week that they are backing a sequel. So it's actually confirmed

Nice! Hope Vin Diesel doesn't have to flip the mortgage on his house to produce the next one also. In an interview he said he put every last dollar of his on the line to produce his recent Riddick.

yeah, universal is actually funding it this time, so he's got no worries there. they stood up and took notice that his $38 million "Riddick" made $91 million theatrically

Watched cloudy meatballs 2. I have to 2nd earlier post, saying it was weird. I don't usually have trouble suspending disbelief for a movie, but this was tough. I'd say audio was 4/5, but in some of the scenes, even the 2D rental looked (almost) 3D. Prob not everyone's favorite genre, but two nights ago my friend stopped by with the blue ray version of Staind at Mohegan sun. Sounded like being there. ...just a little quieter. Awesome.

We watched Catching Fire last night. I had seen it in the theater twice and it was still very enjoyable and tense.Excellent movie IMO. Soundtrack is fantastic.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Watched Catching fire last night, very enjoyable. It was better in some ways than the first one. I thought they did a great job of keeping the continuity going from the first one. The movie did well at tugging at your emotions and keeping you on the edge of your seat with suspense and action.
The audio was great lots of soround use but I did not care for the aspect ratio change to keep the IMAX format in tact. Keeping in 2:40,1 would have been my preference. I found when it changed to the IMAX 1:85,1 it lost some of it's sharpness did anyone else see this?

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

We also enjoyed the Hunger Games Catching Fire. It wasn't great nor was it bad just kind of over hyped IMHO.
