I was mainly testing it to see if it worked but ended up getting into it!

I watched Ex Machina on blu-ray this weekend. This was a blind purchase for me based on some trusted reviews and I am happy to say that it was well worth it.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I will be watching Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation tomorrow evening, and wanted to refresh my memory on Ghost Protocol beforehand, so I watched that last night. Well, it had been a few years since I'd seen it (only once) so I had forgotten not only how great a movie it is, but how fantastic the soundtrack is. It has been quite a while since I enjoyed a soundtrack as much as I enjoyed that one last night. It has everything, from subtle ambience to excellent dialogue clarity, from great panning and sound placement to powerful and very dynamic explosions. I believe I was only running 5.1 when I saw it the first time, but last night I was running 7.1 and I think it made a significant difference in immersion. Wow!

Watched Enders Game on Bluray. I never read the book so I don't have anything to compare it to but the movie was enjoyable enough but nothing great.
As a side note there were several scenes where I thought " I wish I had bought the 3D version" only to discover it was not a 3D movie.

We did watch Rogue Nation the other evening. It lived up rather well to the MI reputation and was thoroughly enjoyable. I think Ghost Protocol is ever so slightly better for me, but that's no knock on Rogue Nation. The soundtrack was great on my non-Atmos, 7.1 system, but bass extension was not quite as great as Ghost Protocol's track had. Either way, this is definitely my kind of show.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Maggie. Some great cinematography, looked like natural lighting. Something quite a bit different for Arnold Schwarzenegger, very little dialog but he conveys so much. There is also great chemistry between Schwarzenegger and Breslin that you can believe they are father/daughter. Probably not a great film but it sure looks good and the music never lets you forget the tragedy. Unfortunately it was so close to being so much more but just didn't quite get there.
