Watched Hot Fuzz for the first time. I can't believe I missed this gem. Funny and nice LFE.
Was the LFE a little over the top to you? Been awhile but that's what I remember.

Well considering the movie was more on the comedy side and not a true action film I was impressed with so much LFE.
I don't think it was over the top.

Great movie, and the LFE! Waling in thru the automatic doors, and his footsteps were great! My wife asked is something was wrong with the speakers, and why I had him thumping while he was walking...

Desolation of Smaug. First movie viewed as a family after adding 2 recliners and re running YPAO. It left the subs hotter than I like but it felt just about right. The SQ wasn't quite as good as the first time around but the PQ was great. I think they used a plastic leaf (Bilbo kills the giant centipede?? and reaches down for the ring).
Need for Speed tomorrow.
Feel let down with the Desolation of Smaug...just didn't do anything for me in horizontal sound field....Now you will enjoy NFS, as that will sound hitting all your speakers, and the LFE, great!

I found the surround details to be spot on. Even a few surprises.

I've moved seats again, reran YPAO again, tweaked the subs again and wow. Watched Bastogne (ep. #6 BoB) last night and it never felt more accurrate. I was able to leave the volume alone and could hear all (the quite)dialog through out the show. I heard a bullet (several actually) "whip" like never before.
Need for Speed tonight I guess. Good thing its only $2 a day.

Time to play

Thanks, maybe I should re-visit it again. You will enjoy NFS

Yes it was over the top and an entirely intentional move on the part of the director to add to the comedic effect. Very silly and fun movie, one of my favorites.

I figured it was meant to be over exaggerated but just a bit much for me personally. Maybe I should re-watch it because I may have still had my old Klipsch RW-12D sub it was rather boomy with a serious case of port chuffing.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I started re-watching the Underworld movies a few nights ago. I sure do enjoy watching Kate Beckinsale run around in shiny black tight fitting outfits. Rona Mitra is easy on the eyes as well. I always thought Rona should have played Lara Croft.

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.
