Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

I love "You Are Not Alone" and "You Cannot Advance"! They condense and change some of the original Evangelion episodes in a way that is very engaging. The new graphics enhancements also implemented into those discs are even better. I'm still waiting for them to finish the series off like that, but that's a topic for another thread, I guess.

Sorry for the thread-jacking!

I am with you Jon. It is a movie one can skip ahead to the cool fight scenes and not even miss out on anything.
When the two gave their life at the end, I did not see that anyone in the theater feeling all that bad about it. Very poor character development movie. But a great action one. I guess it is all what you want in a movie.

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

WOW! I would love to hear this on Sonnies system!
What a soundtrack on this movie! The picture quality is awesome as well, the colours are so rich and inky.
I agree some of the acting parts lack a little but who cares LOL it's all about the battles.

Two notes: if you have a 7.1 speaker setup you have to select the 7.1 track it defaults to the 5.1 track. And watch the credits there is more.

Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

Mike, your Deftechs should suffice, though (at least in the mean time)! I know that the stated frequency range digs down to 20Hz according to Deftech. Still, you'll definitely want to get a good dedicated sub to truly appreciate soundtracks like these!

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

Yes, or two (or three or four!). I would love to add a 2+ Rythmik subs to my mix just for kicks and giggles, but truthfully, I haven't felt the need to entertain that thought too much since my towers do so incredibly well!

Re: Pacific Rim - Blu-ray Review

I wasn't going to buy this movie but after all the good reviews on the video and audio quality, it sounds like it's worth buying and should give my horn sub a good workout!!
