Some movies just are. I don't know its size, but it's measured in tens of feet. I guess about 30-40. Despite that, 3D is still not that compelling on it. I'm waiting for holographic displays!
You'll be waiting awhile.

Hercules was a very good movie and the LFE was exceptional.

The Fluffy Movie was really funny and touching too since it has to do with his life. Also saw The Purge 2 and thought it was much better than the first one.
Thinking about going old school tonight and maybe watch Jacob's Ladder.

Jacobs ladder was a good one. I watched the day after tomorrow. I was surprised that a lot of the scenes with big catastrophic stuff had less infrasonic bass than the segues, and ominous foreshadowing scenes. The opening credits are a good example. Then I watched the last 30 minutes of "Rush" clockwork angels concert on palladia. After that was Aerosmith in Japan, tsunami relief concert. No question those two bands earned their reputations as masters of their craft. So tight, and on point.

I just finished watching it and enjoyed it. I followed the movie well but the end kinda threw me off.
Tell me what you thought when you see it.

Last night was "curse of the black pearl". Still fun after all these years. Seems the surround channels were more subdued than I remember. I even got up to check! Definitely on. I concluded that the mix was done this way intentionally, and seemed to add to the cohesive balance. I also think newer soundtracks(which are an evolution) are more aggressive in the rears, but also by design, they're less obvious. Does that make sense? Tonight was the taking of Pelham 123. Good movie. Not many standout moments but one. John Turturro, and Denzel Washington are in a helicopter, and I swear, the sound was everywhere, especially sounding like I could hear the engine and rotor above. I immediately thought of atmos. I can't wait to experience that.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Went to see Interstellar,thought it was a very good scfi flick,it was a bit long but did not put us to sleep,i thought it had a decent plot.Here's what i didn't like after watching it in IMAX like some reviews had suggested i thought that theatre i went to had the seating was way to close to the curved screen,i was at the last row and scenes were flsahing by me as if i was on a roller coaster.the sound was awsome and will probably buy it when it hits bluray.
