We are going to watch Transformers. It should be a good one to test the marantz ma 700 mono blocks we just picked up.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier..
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhboy... this is an Avengers/Iron Man crusher right here. the first Iron Man has been bested, Avengers level of Epic, but with a darker feel for it. I'm saying that right now it's my favorite of the Marvel universe movies and I wasn't expecting much after the garbage that was Iron Man 3

Went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 3D and I have to agree with everyone that is saying this is one of the better superhero movies made and far better than the previous Captain America movie (and I enjoyed that one too). I will say save your money and don't see it in 3D it was poorly done and not worth the extra expense.

We saw Captain America also yesterday at the Dolby Atmos theater in 3d. My same thoughts about it not being done well for 3d. There was one scene toward the end, but that was it. That, said though, it was awesome and can't wait for the BR.

Watched Catching Fire Saturday. It was a very good movie. Lots of suspense, action, and emotion. It exceeded my expectations. I was exhausted by the end of the movie. It was probably the best movie that I don't care to see again.

Watched Captain America Dark World last night in 3D/9.2 PlIIz Height. Awesome movie. I was hugely entertained. The audio, video, and LFE we're outstanding throughout the entire movie. The Black Elf ship landing in the city would make an impressive demo sequence. I'm ready for an encore. Loki is the man!

Finally got around to watching Ender's Game.

I've never read the book, so I can't compare the two, but I did enjoy the movie. I'd like to read the book (and the others) one of these days.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Enders Game and Hunger Games Catching Fire over the weekend. Enders Game had an excellent mix with plenty of deep LFE but the story itself was just OK. Catching Fire was entertaining but I don't think it was better than the first, the sound was a little disappointing also, I think the first had a better mix.

I also started to watch Anchorman 2 but turned it off after about 10-15 minutes, I enjoy some goofy comedies but this was just plain bad - please don't waste your time with it.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

We watched "Elysium."

It was a bit slow at points and the wife knocked out for a couple of minutes but the blu-ray had excellent sound quality with lots of bass rumble and roll. A lot of effort was put forth for the visuals. Very nice video quality.

Can't say it was the best movie but definitely a four out of five star but sadly, in my opinion, not worth a used purchase from Amazon. At a shipped price of $13.05, I considered the blu-ray to be a bit expensive. Unless wanting it for your collection, maybe a local rental would be a better choice.
