The Martian. Really enjoyed this one. Realistic? No. Pretty well done? Yes. I have to say, there were times, when this soundtrack sounded completely without speakers, or without a room. Super enveloping.

The Butler. Good film, nothing outstanding other than the story is a great one and some of the acting was superb. Video and audio were nothing to get excited about. The casting was very interesting. Seeing Alan Rickman play President Reagan reminded me of what a pro he was. Tough part to get right, but he did a respectable job introducing some level of complexity to the man who many trivialize. Casting Fonda as Nancy Reagan seemed a bit of a political statement, but she can act, and did a reasonable job. The early scenes with Cusak as then vice President Nixon seemed to have a more accurate make up version of the nose than the later ones. He definitely added eccentricity to the part that was justified, maybe leaning a little too much to the creepy. It is always a joy to watch Robin Williams in a dramatic role and while his part as President Eisenhower was small, it was well done.

And, of course, the story is a great one, making me think hard about race in this country. Having grown up in the south much of it hit close to home. Few of us think of ourselves as racist, but just as few think about what it really means to be black. While many minorities are discriminated against, and many disadvantaged people in our society don't get a second thought from those of us in the majority who live relatively secure lives, we just don't consider what it is like for many others.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re-watched "Cloverfield" on bluray which was very fun especially with the new sub then went to see "10 Cloverfield lane" which was not at all like Cloverfield but was an excellent movie. I will probably end up seeing it again in the theaters and then picking it up on bluray when its available.

Just finished watching Spotlight. A very sobering story that was well written and acted. Probably controversial to some but a good watch.

No, pushed her pretty hard last night and woke up with a hum in my bad ear. All of the demo material came out last night. Very happy with the sound though. Honestly movies are about the same although I think XT32 tightened up my subs. The biggest improvement was music (non Blu-Ray). I don't know if it's the DAC's or what but even MP3's sounded great!

Watched Black Mass and thought it was great. Johnny Depp portrayed the roll perfectly. Some very good acting across the board. A very violent story but that's what you'd expect in a movie about organized crime. Highly recommended.
