Re: Skyfall - Blu-ray Review

Alright, I'm about 9 years behind in bluray watching (what's new!).

This movie, visuals and sound, was absolutely phenomenal. Wow is all I can say. Really enjoyed it.

The story was nearly up to the task, IMO. It lost me just a tad at the end... in many ways the movie's presentation reminded me of a super hero flick (many parallels between the aging and seemingly mortal Bond character and, say, the way Batman has been presented in recent releases). Old, injured... but wile, cunning and possessing that "rise to the occasion" persona and strength. Did anyone else feel that way.

My favorite section of the movie, hands-down, were the scenes filmed in China. The colors were so vibrant... really stunning to say the least.

Great review, Mike.

Great review and great movie! One of the best bond movies in recent years.

Re: Skyfall - Blu-ray Review

Question for all of you... In the opening scenes where Bond is fighting on top of the train and Eve tags him (stupid to take that shot, in my opinion...), there is a close-up view of the speaker-phone at MI-6 and the words come from Eve saying "agent down".

Is this very "quiet" on your audio systems? Or, do I need to do some tuning on my system? My new theater looks and sounds awesome, but this "agent down" phrase seems strangely quiet.

Thanks.

That scene comes through crystal clear on mine as well. When I first set up audyssey multieq xt however, i noticed my center channel dialogue was horrible. I had to crank it up quite a bit to hear anything. I decided to redo set up and now it's way better.
