Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I've seen 2 good ones this week. I watched Fury on Monday and last night it was U-571 (again) although I hadn't experienced since I got the new subs. I really liked Fury. Those tank on tank scenes were pretty intense. I also ordered Master and Commander, so we'll give it another whirl soon with the new subs. I know, I'm not very original.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Made a rare appearance at my local theater for "Mad Max: Fury Road" and wow was it worth it. This movie really is so much better than it has any right to be. I saw it in 2D but thinking about seeing it again in 3D. I really wish there was a Atmos theater near me.
Looking forward to picking this up on blu-ray and watching the B&W version that will be included.

Chapter 4 is one of the best demo scenes ever. One caution. My blu Ray version disappointed me greatly. I demoed it for my brother without testing first, as I was intimately familiar with the dvd. I stopped it cause I was a little embarrassed. As it turns out, the BD was mastered with a shelf filter. (30hz? Can't remember) I actually gave my bd copy away, as it's not even the same soundtrack. Your new beasts will be yawning and laughing at you!!!! If you google master and commander blu Ray shelf filter, or other similar words, you should find a few things on this. Lame....

I watched "the giver". There were a few technical details I had a hard time swallowing, but I surprisingly enjoyed this quite a bit. Only a couple short LFE drops and sweeps. Surround bubble was firmly in place.

American Sniper was next. I'm going to watch this again before I say too much about it. There is much to gush over but, as much as I like Bradley Cooper, I struggled with believing him. I can't quite get my brain cell around it, but I may have been victim to hype. Maybe? Fwiw, so far I feel like lone survivor was better on all counts. (Except LFE performance/quantity)

Well crud. Thanks for the forewarning. I was really looking forward to it. Oh well, only $6 invested.

We caught the 3D version and it was amazing! I can honestly say it was one of my favorite action films of all time!

From my experience, I'd say it's worth another 6 bucks for the dvd. (I never thought I'd say that! :shame $2.99 at one of our local pawn shops.
It's truly exemplary.

Just finished watching High School Musical with the kids haha. They can't seem to get enough of it, though I certainly can. Oh well, any excuse to get in front of the hifi is at least a decent excuse

Oh, that reminds me, we watched The Last 5 Years last weekend. Unintentionally, the third musical with Anna Kendrick in about as many weeks (Into the Woods and Pitch Perfect being the other two). Not so sure what to think about it. I guess you'd have to like musicals to enjoy it. Sometimes they just feel kind of forced. I will say that I'm not the biggest fan of Ms Kendrick after all that. Decent singer but not a great actress IMO.

Finished watching The Woman in Black 2 this evening. It was really boring to me.
