Re: What movie did you watch last night?

We watched Sarah McLachlan's Afterglow Live DVD on Friday night. Video was . . . well, SD. Audio was OK, nothing special but didn't distract from the show. Performance was great -- if you're a SM fan it's definitely worth a viewing.

Some beautiful video on that one. Did you get the one with the British guy narrating or Oprah? If memory serves me correct Oprah did narrate one of the BBC versions. The British guy is much better in my opinion.

Watched a horror movie about a killer tire the other day. Its a ok movie called rubber on netflix streaming. Its not a run out buy sort of movie but if your in the mind set to watch mindless horror comedy it works well

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched Skyfall(blu-ray). This was a second viewing. I'd watched it previously on a budget LG blu-ray player feeding a digital audio signal via HDMI to my Vizio tv and then via toslink to my Outlaw 990. I was unimpressed with the sound. Last night, I watched it on my Oppo BDP-83SE feeding multichannel analog to the Outlaw 990 and the sound was fantastic!

Below is a very under rated movie in its genre. The second movie "Darkness" I don't remember. I just know I bought it as a double feature on Blu-ray specifically for the submarine movie.
