I liked Olympus Has Fallen quite a bit as well. Great action and sound!

We watched Olympus Has Fallen - highly recommended. There is a LOT of action, good plot, and pretty strong bass. We all enjoyed it.
Agreed. Watched it a few weeks ago. Ground assault on white house was somewhat implausible: all those guys suddenly appearing automatic with weapons and secret service emerging with hand guns like lemmings to be shot

Enjoyed it all the same

I recommend Irreversible with Monica Bellucci. The opening part of the film is the end and the end is the beginning.
Next on the list.

Just watched RIPD with the daughter and Despicable Me 2.

Top Gun BD

This was the first movie I bought (VHS) when I bought my first surround sound system.

Forgot how good it was.

Watched a few scenes in TrueHD and DTS-MA and thought the DTS-MA was way better than TrueHD, especially the LFE

Just finished Iron Man 3. Now that was a great BluRay all the way around!

Haven't seen that one yet but it's on the list. Definitely liked the first two.

We watched Mud last night. Interesting story and characters. A bit slow at times but not too bad for a blind Redbox rental.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Just finished Das Boot on Netflix Blu-Ray. (The Boat in English) Made in 1981 it's a war movie about a German submarine and the struggles of the crew through a few close encounters with the enemy. German language is used on the original film but the English audio was very well done on the disc. Picture was kinda grainy from the original film but still looked great on Blu-Ray.

Very good movie feeling real, like you are there in the submarine with them. Great action and wonderful story although it is not a happy ending. But I'm going all the way to 5 stars with this one.

Das Boot is one of my favorite movies. Have you watched... The Hunt for Red October or U-571?

I know it wasn't addressed to me but I love both those movies. U-571 was a reference DVD for me for a long time. I've been keeping my eyes open for it on blu-ray in the $5 bin at best buy but haven't found it yet. There's always amazon!

Oh BTW I watched break in slides (panel prep slides) on my new VT60 for the last 3 nights. Does that count? Lol

2 more days to go of watching white, less white, gray, darker gray, bright red etc......and then the fun begins!!!

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Last night was Bond night, James Bond

We saw "Casino Royale". This movie is a visual masterpiece for a home theater!

Not only a lot of non stop action but the sound is also very impressive.. (the orchestral score).

Overall an excellent movie
