Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

I think if my subs can make it through Cloverfield, they can pretty much handle anything. I have tried to make them buckle under pressure, but it ain't happening. My walls have cracks, but the subs are fine.

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

I do believe Cloverfield was a more bass intensive movie overall, but Super 8 definitely will impress you nonetheless!

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

Looking forward to this on blu-ray and it should be delivered within the next day or two. I found Cloverfield to be much more enjoyable than expected so I'm hoping for the same with this movie.

Thanks for the review!

Cloverfield put me to sleep, Super 8 was enjoyable.

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

Just finished watching Super 8 for the first time and liked it!

This movie definitely has some great special effects and a soundtrack that will give your speaker system a nice workout.

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

I was pleasantly surprised by the audio on this blu-ray. Overall clarity and dynamics were excellent not only in the quality of the recording, but also in how it was artistically delivered. I enjoyed the movie greatly!

Cheers, Joe

Re: Super 8 - Blu-Ray Review

Enjoyed this movie a lot. I thought it would be a bit more on the horror side but ended up not minding at all that it wasn't.

The train crash scene was INTENSE... my SubM loved it and gave it the sweet ULF it deserved...
