I have not seen such a good movie in a long time. Nonstop action. Two thumbs up for The Raid 2!

Locke - 2013

It's like Cast Away in a car. I'd give it 5 out of 10. No scenes to test your subwoofers. Good movie if you want to try to figure out what's going on, though.

We watched Transcendence last night. The reviews were mixed so I went in not expecting too much and ended up enjoying it. Yes it gets a little "out there" at times and stretches my willingness to suspend disbelief. Still entertaining though. And the soundtrack was subdued much of the time (dialogue-heavy) but had a few cool effects and surprises that kept it interesting. I would give it 3 stars (out of 5).

I watched it a few days ago also. Its a great series. I just wish it wasn't voiced over, it would be more enjoyable.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Went to see Guardians Of the Galaxy in 3D. Despite the somewhat already done end of a world plot line,this movie was awesome!!! Great action,funny, good acting.Good sub plot probably leading to a sequel. When I entered the theater (not my usual theater) I noticed above the door Ultra AVX. I said I wonder what that means? The sound was also awesome. When I got home I looked up Ultra AVX. It turns out (as some of you may know) is Dolby Atmos. WOW !

nice! This looks good. I "finally" saw gravity. It was on my bedroom system so it could have been more impressive, however I really liked it. Different use of the surrounds I liked, but the ominous bass I didn't get to experience. ...next time. The other thing that surprised me was that, when the movie was over, I thought to myself this could have really happened! I would say it was superbly crafted, although for ppl in such situations, there was almost a lack of emotion. Enjoyed.

Watched Under the Skin. Huh! What a weird film.
I take it the dark background where she takes the men by sinking into whatever it is that resembles water or quicksand and represents death for them.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched The Calling last night via Sony Digital Download. The movie is a horror thriller and Susan Sarandon and Topher Grace were very good in this movie. I was glued to my seat from beginning to end.

My stuff: LG 60" 4K -Yamaha RX-A3040-Panasonic BD91- Klipsch Ref series front, top, and center. Fluance AVBP2 and Panasonic Titanium Titans bring up the surrounds and rear. Klipsch 12 inch ref subwoofer.
