Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Yesterday I went and saw Jupiter Ascending at my local cinema.

I had really wanted to like this movie and was kinda hype from
the trailers. I like the Wachowski "siblings" version of Cloud Atlas
and was looking for something new.

I wont spoil the film but suffice it to say I didn't like it. Besides
visuals and sound, there was nothing there. It deserved it's 2/10
on rotten tomatoes

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Here is another movie you might want to watch that will give your subs and home theater system a work out. My 3 PSA subs loved handling the LFE in this movie and I must say I had never seen my grilles on my XS30 bubble out so much.

Warning...This movie has floor and wall shaking sound effects so You may want to have your volume adjusted a little lower when it first begins and then adjust up to what you system can handle. Ha



I will certainly buy the Blu-ray when the price comes down a little.

I have watched it and I had my sound set up when it started, thought I was going to break some windows before I could turn it down.

I got the warning beforehand and played that about 6 times, each time at a louder volume. Never seen the cones on my SI 24" subs move so much

The bass on this was surprising, fun soundtrack and an interesting movie. Not a repeat viewing for me but it would be nice to have the disc to demo the subs every now and then.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Of recent I have watched a few movies...they include:

The Timber: A story about two brother who go out into the wilderness to hunt down their estranged father, who left when they were young, in an attempt to turn him in for a reward to keep their family home which is about to be taken from them by the bank.

John Doe Vigilante : Ok, movie. A movie based on how one citizen decides to take justice upon his own hands as the justice system is failing society.

The Dark Valley: Interesting foreign film, about a village hidden in the mountains. The family that rules the town with a ruthless hand and the retribution that comes to lay on them from the one that got away. I really enjoyed this film.

The Little Death: Not a movie for non-adults. About Adult desires in a relationship (in intimate ways). And what they will do to achieve them.

Wild Card: Jason Statham, need I say more. Action movie, fun and enjoyable.

St. Vincent:Comical at times, an enjoyable movie about a relationship between a young neighbor boy and an elderly disgruntled neighbor resulting in a understanding of each other and the struggles of life.

Laggies: A mix between a young girls coming to age and a young adult finding herself and what she wants in life, mainly what relationship.

Foxcatcher: An interesting movie, yet not that fun or exciting to watch. I will say that the Team Coach is a strange character. Good acting to play the character.

Dying of the Light: A Nicholas Cage movie about a CIA agent bent on catching the one that got away, at all costs. Enjoyable movie, leans more on the plot than a high action film.

Thumbs up Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Started watching Studio Ghibli's latest, 'The Tale of the Princess Kaguya' last nite. Traditional hand-drawn animation serves this affecting story perfectly, and is a refreshing departure from the current CGI-laden fare out there. Watching it in the original japanese audio track, which is always preferable with foreign language titles. In any case, the film certainly deserves its universal acclaim -- nominated for 'Best Animated Feature Film' in this Sunday's Oscars, and a 100% score on R/T's !
