My wife and I went to watch Pacific Rim last night and I must say I can't wait to get the blu-ray of that movie! The soundtrack is out of this world and the visual effects are magnificent! But not really fair to compare movie theater with home theater so........watched Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Great sound track on blu-ray and the scene of the sand storm is awesome! Makes the sand storm sound like its seriously all around you.

I went to see Pacific Rim in IMAX which I am very glad I made the 26 mile trek to the nearest IMAX theater as this move really demands to be seen on the biggest screen possible, think Transformers on steroids. It really is a great summer popcorn flick. This will be a day one purchase on blu-ray when it goes on sale.

My wife and I watched "Live Free or Die Hard". We'd enjoyed the other Die Hard movie and figured this one would also be very enjoyable. We found it okay, but not up to expectations.I can't put my finger on the problem, but it was lacking in dramatic tension.

not having a really specific villain hurt it drastically too IMO

I watched an older movie last night called Riegn over me with Adam Sandler. I was pleasantly surprised with his performance because I don't consider him a dramatic actor by any means.

We went and saw "Despicable Me 2" and "Monsters University" over the weekend. Both are excellent movies. I did prefer Monsters University over the other one but they were both very good. Highly recommend both to families.

Saw Pacific Rim last night in Dolby Atmos - really fun movie! Some of the 'emotional' scenes seemed a bit forced but the fight scenes are epic and well worth the price of entry. I can't wait to watch it at home!
