we reviewed it here as well, and for sure the audio is stellar, and the PQ is just as good.
Sorry meant no offense. I am new HTS, and look forward to reading the reviews. Thanks for the info.

oh please, don't worry, wasn't meaning it that way... I was just backing up Ralph's opinion and saying that it's a stunner for sure on Blu-ray...

Good to know Mike! I have following Ralph for years, and appreciate what he does, way beyond my scope. Now that I am learning to navigate HTS, I will find the reviews. HTS ahs sooo much information, pretty awesome, thanks to all who contribute.

Ralph is a very good guy, he has some insights that some other reviewers gloss over for sure. He influenced me (AVS was my original HT website for me a decade ago) very heavily to upgrade into the JVC LCOS projector world and we actually have very very similar review projectors as a result (although my wallet doesn't like it as much )

Just saw Only Lovers Left Alive. Wow what a waste of two hours. The movie is slow and weak story.
I don't see how it got 7.4 stars out of 10 on IMDB. I do NOT even recommend it as a rental.
Apparently, the entire cast and crew voted on it and of course they liked it. (Kidding).

Seriously, I sometimes wonder this same thing myself--how could this movie or that one get rated so high anywhere? Then I remember how popular the so-called "Reality" shows are and I am mystified all over again.

Thanks for the warning on this stinker of a film.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

We watched Amazing Spiderman 2 on Friday night. We liked it okay, but I kind of felt like some of it was a little contrived and the chemistry between Peter and Gwen felt a little lacking and/or forced. Overall, though, it was a good time.

You have to be able to appreciate director Jim Jarmusch's body of work
and his style of directing. His movies are often slow, but intriguing.
His stories unfold slowly and I like taking the trip. It's a nice change
from the Hollywood blockbuster summer movies with all action
and no heart. Jarmusch's movies are like sitting to watch an abstract painter,
using his colors on a canvas. It's slow going, but you might just
enjoy the final picture.

Haven't seen this movie but totally understand where you're coming from. Perfect description for how I felt after watching "Under The Skin".
