Sorry Brian, but as mentioned above, it is the new Metallica concert/movie that hits blu today (Metallica: Through the Never). 2.35, 3d......can't wait to check it out on my scope screen as it is extremely rare we get a concert in 2.35.
I was surprised to see it even mentioned in this thread as I am not expecting anything in the way of bass, so whatever is there will be a bonus.

It all depends on what you mean by bad movie though as to me, a movie can be good from many angles and for different reasons. If talking plot, story and acting, then I would agree with you. Something like Transformers though for example I would consider a good movie IF watched in a nice theater since a big part of that type of movie experience relies on the technical side itself and from that perspective, it is a good movie even though the plot, acting and story are weak. Not to mention what makes a "bad" movie is VERY subjective which is always why I have to watch and decide for myself. When somebody says "This movie is bad" all they are telling me is it was bad in their opinion which might not line up with my own once I see it, especially in my HT.
A good example of this is the recent Ninja films talked about here. These films to me are pretty awful if I was just watching on my flat panel tv upstairs with my tv speakers, but watching downstairs in the HT turns these films into very fun escapism entertainment that I will certainly revisit at times. So is it a bad movie overall? Not in my opinion as it is highly entertaining from a technical perspective and a great escape for a few hours if the mood strikes for that kind of thing.
Sorry to rant here a bit, but I always find it funny when someone says "movie X is bad" like people will just find it universally bad.
All that person is telling me is their opinion which I may or may not agree with after watching myself. Different movies can be "good" for many different reasons depending on the person, how they watched it, etc........you just never know until you watch yourself, but it is fun to read what other people think.
