Re: Dredd - Blu-ray Review

I will have to see what this movie can do on my subs. And REW only goes down to 10hz. I am trying to get more acquainted with SpectrumLab so I can start posting the deep bass movies again. Give me some more time and we will have a new list started again.

Re: Dredd - Blu-ray Review

Dredd is a blast. I watched it two nights in a row over the weekend with different friends and they all really enjoyed it also.

The LFE is insane, when they inhale the Slow-Mo in the beginning of the movie I thought I died and went to bass-head heaven. This will be one of my go-to demo movies for sure.

As mentioned the PQ in dark areas was pretty bad but that is more than made up for with the AQ.

Sure it's not going to win any Best Picture awards and the violence will turn off some but the acting by the leads was good and there isn't a dull moment.

Re: Dredd - Blu-ray Review

Has anyone had hardware compatibility issues with this blu-ray?

there's a bad batch of discs floating around out there, but that seems mostly relegated to a batch sent to Best buy USA.

Yeah, it plays fine on my Samsung in the bedroom, but the Panasonic in the the theater can't read the disc.
I was thinking of returning it to Best Buy, but I plan on getting an Oppo soon and I hear they have no problems with disc playback.
