Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Been quiet at home this week with the family out of town. I finally got around to watching Elysium and it was just ok IMO. Felt like District 9 but not nearly as good. I re-watched 9 (Burton) and The Incredibles (great movie!) too. I picked up Open Range on DVD... awesome sound during the gun fight. It will be a good test disc for reviews.

There are no new releases that I'm dying to see right now.

Yeah, the only part of Open Range I've seen is the gun fight. It really is a fantastic demo scene, and will challenge the dynamic capability of a system.

Oh, and The Incredibles is my favorite animated movie. Great stuff!

Love the incredibles! It's so clever. It's also quite dynamic. ...still waiting for a sequel.

Hoping for an Incredibles sequel too. I heard some rumors a couple of months ago that they're planning on it and/or working on it.

Comments about PB in the winner's thread

I keep telling myself I'm going to watch this but I keep forgetting. Didn't realize until now it was a nearly 5-hour mini series

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Looks like there was a theatrical cut (~2.5 hours) and a director's cut (~3.5 hours) that were both trimmed versions of the original mini-series, and the Blu-ray appears to have the director's cut.

Finally saw the Lego Movie. It was good. My kids love the movie and I can see why. It's fun and lighthearted and just pleasant to watch. Good family movie for sure and the audio won't disappoint.
