I want to buy that new Nintendo: NES Classic Edition they just released. It's sold out everywhere.
Thanks Wabo. THO is actually banned from Christmas party this year, check the Midnight World News when you're in the check-out line at the grocery store for details.

I just finished FFXV Kingsglaive and man that was pretty damn awesome! The sound and visuals were top notch! I wish I won that Audi in the movie that they gave away!

I watched it again last night on the 4k set, not in 4k but whatever it's doing to it makes it look amazing. The FF games are known for pushing visuals to the max. This latest XV, is killer on the home theater with audio. I feel bad for tv or sound bar users. They are missing out.

I forgot to ask you guys. I am thinking about upgrading to a 120" (dia) .8 gain in a grey screen color to help with better black colors. I have a jack of all trades Sony pj that is good but on my screen really dark scenes and the black bars tend to be a dark grey color than black. My screen is white, close to a 1.4 gain now. Will I notice a difference in performance? Or should I just order a 120" in white and save a little money?

I think it's a combination of a better screen and the better "motion plus" or whatever smoothing they are doing.

Your secret is safe with me. If THO is feeling generous and caught up in the Christmas spirit, I'm feeling rather parched and on Santa's nice list. Hint-hint.

I have a Stewart Firehawk grey screen. Think it's 1.3 gain. If you don't have a light controlled room I'd probably recommend a gray screen. I have light control, but my walls and ceiling are light colored. Wife wouldn't sign off on a bat cave. So I went with the Firehawk. Works great for me. YMMV. Although now my projector is slowly dying. It's always something.

Thanks, BSZ. Is this a stand alone FF movie or part of a series?

Thanks man for the advice! Most of my walls are a light grey except for a dark grey wall my screen is on. My room is dark but not bat cave dark.

I think they are tied all together via video games and movies.

It's a prequel to the newest game. Most of the FF series are related in name only with a set of thematic elements that pop up across many of them. That said, the other movies are decent if you like computer animation.

With so many variables it's hard to tell without just getting a screen in there and looking at it. A lot of companies will send free samples of their screen material if you contact them. I had a grey screen years ago when I had a setup in a living room with tons of windows. It did help the blacks, but it made everything a little too dark with the lights out and seemed to "muddy" the whites. Unless you watch with a decent amount of ambient light; or your projector is a light cannon that can easily make up for the brightness hit; I'd usually just recommend a neutral 1.0 white screen in most settings.

Thanks man for your advice! I just checked Amazon for the gain and the grey is 1.0 gain, not .8.
