Hi Frank, nice of you to pop up like that in here.

* And you too, you be cool with the Blues.

BTW, 'Gravity' in 3D is just that much better than in 2D. ...And if you can throw your wives your girlfriends and kids and dogs and cats and birds and fishes out of your house for only one hour and half; crank it up @ THX Master Reference level.
Because you only have one chance @ life to be living @ full speed of light ("c" from Albert Einstein), and out-of-bound rocket launcher 2,000 Gs over the Sound barrier. I know that you like to live on the edge, and you can also go over the precipice; it ain't that bad @ all while you're in there. ...And there are always white holes to get you out eventually.

I truly hope to see you soon 'bach' (my favorite classical music composer) here and post some more about them flicks you recently watched.

Films are like a library full of books; you learn from hanging around.

P.S. I love 'Gladiator'; it's one of my favorite flicks. ...The Music... Hans Zimmer/Lisa Gerrard

Until then, I have my trusty 24" Wards SD CRT to keep me company. Not exactly "state-of-the-art", but it still produces a pretty nice picture, and also works quite well with my BD player.
The last HD film I watched was "Ender's Game" on blu-ray on an LED DLP projector, an LG PA70G on a 120" screen at home.
I'm now 50 years old and have grown up watching and owning CRTs for most of my life, including some nice Sony SD CRTs; that Sony 1080i CRT is the best that I know of. Something, the contrast ratio and/or refresh speed, seems to me to make a great CRT look even more "real" and "live" than the 65" Samsung 1080P LED LCD I have now or any flat-panel technology (OLED is closer to CRT visual characteristics). It just was never cost effective to make CRTs bigger than about the size of that 34". The picture characteristic I value most is that visual presence, in which the image seems as if looking through a window into a space with real depth, not referring here to actual 3D technology as it is now, but just a natural sense of dimension that engages immersive viewing. I also greatly enjoy my LG PA70G LED DLP projector on a 120" widescreen in a totally light-controlled room.

No problem with reference THX on a good movie it's only 85dB weighted avg at the listener (pretty loud) the +20dB peaks get real loud though ( if you have some amps with 20dB headroom over the 85dB weigted avg don't try that with an AVR they can get loud but I don't think 115dB at the listener Like my crown amps will it takes many hundred watts ☺ still not as loud as as Digital 3D Imax at the movie that gets loud !

I used to ride mountain bikes, bloodsport rides not park trails great fun .....and pain sometimes but edgy

ofc I'll come back I shamelessly pimped this thread over at hires here just now maybe some of the folks will stop by

No tube, nothing @ all like them titles you just mentioned. ...Totally/abso!utely different in all aspects.

Laura Dern is the daughter of Bruce Dern ('Nebraska') as you probably already know.
And her mother ...

Just check it out ('Inland Empire') tube; it is very twisted, really. You might feel to puke @ one point, but that's the point of that movie; enduring through the end.
And then the more you watch it the more you regain your composure; I assure you.

Oh, one more last thing; it's a short movie (exactly 180 minutes long - 3 hours) and it was meant to be viewed in one large scoop only (no chapter advance, no pause, no break, no nothing except 3-hours non-stop viewing).
And that, is no bull; it is the perfect truth.

It's not bad, you might hit some peaks between 105 and 115dB occasionally, but they are rather of the short duration type. ...Not the loudest movie around but very cool nonetheless because of its "excellente bande sonore". And @ Reference level you can ear all the dialogue clearly, and the flies buzzing around.

* I still ride my mountain bike, on flat mountains (city streets). ...Just kidding; on hills and edges of precipices (where if you fall you simply die; abso!utely, not a shadow of a doubt).

Nice meeting, NorthSky, and interesting thread! The LG PA70G LED DLP projector I have is not 3D, though it produces an image very much like projected film, to me. Yes, if I can't have the intense contrast of a CRT, then I'm going BIG, as in the LED DLP projector on 120" (ten feet diagonal 16:9) which are a huge bargain at $500 to $700, for what the projectors do. I also thoroughly enjoyed "Pacific Rim" on blu-ray on that big screen. I have ordered, but haven't yet received, but it's in shipment, a Seiki SU4KC1 U-Vision HDMI cable (about $42 USD, Amazon and other outlets) to place between my Yamaha receiver's HDMI output and the projector. From what I've read, the Seiki cable has an active processor inside (powered by USB) and up-coverts HD to 4K, but I don't have a 4K display yet. On an HD display though, the cable (which is actually an A/V device processor) still has the benefit of real-time analysis of the incoming video signal, and outputs video adjusting picture optimally better than the built-in signal processing of most equipment. If it makes even one notch up in noticeable image clarity, it'll be worth it. Other equipment I'm using with the projector are a HomeWorx MediaSonic HW-150PVR OTA ATSC HD Tuner with full HD HDMI output (a real HD no-fee DVR if you connect a USB hard drive) , Panasonic blu-ray, Boston Acoustics 5.1 surround speakers, WDTV media player, and the 120" screen is a basic white Elite brand, only about $160 USD.

ummm if the Seiki cable is up scaling /outputting 2160p UHD as opposed to 1080p I don't think your projector is gonna see it mate 2160p is a whole different thing and then there are the supported color profiles to consider 2160p is like
0 - 255 and your FP set up can be either that or 16-235 like everything else in the consumer entertainment 2K HD device universe I think your HDMI reciever or mainboard might puke if you feed it 2160p ! they have a narrow range set in the EDID profiles as what they will or will not accept and 1080i/1080p/ 60 is max period beyond that go fish or look at a blank screen I'm thinking even if it support hires PC you're maybe taking about 2560 x 1440 ceiling or something close but in ant event if 2160p isn't in he EDID (not likley) still going to be go fish unless it'a a 4 K FP

Yo Frankie, I'm here.

* BTW, Amir's thread is now closed. Sadly because there are some questions that remain still unanswered.
...One in particular from Scott, @ the very beginning; I was going to put it to the attention of Mr. Amir because it was directly aimed @ him (by Scott), but unfortunately I ran out of time just before I was constructing my post extremely intelligently.

So, one less audio (hirez) subject to concentrate on and more good stuff comin' up. ...Like movies for example.

Hi Ron,

Nice reply from you, ty for taking the time, much appreciated.
What I really like from your post is that you are a completist and a value oriented videophile.
TY again for sharing. ...And I love 3D.
...And I keep two eyes wide open on 4K, and on 'Godzilla' (size does matter).

Like I just said above. ...I'd rather not think about it, and let them do some serious research (on American soil) to find a cure for this devastating killer virus (Ebola, and many many more...).

...I am not going to go any further with this (under the Bush administration, and the CIA), because it does not correspond with my thread's objective (last watched flick, or doc. in hi-def pic. and hi-res aud.) if you know what I mean.

If, you last watched a political Documentary on Blu-ray, or DVD, or Laser Disc, or VHS tape, or hi-def and hi-res news on your HDTV or HD front projector or HD laptop screen; that is OK to mention the title, but no political or religious or hard-core porn discussions. Not here, not in my thread, and certainly not @ AVSForum. ...Comprende amigo?

Last night (early this morning in a pitch dark black sky of the universe/multiverse) I watched this ::



Please, don't watch it all alone, in the dark, at night, when the sky is black. ...Pitch black.
But other than that it is ok; I recommend it, if you can stomach it without blowing (puking) your brains out.
...All over the floor, the couch, the coffee table, and your display.
Happy viewing, in hi-def.

that was predictable all things considered I have to behave(for a while ) politbeuro sent me some love .When Armirn and Arny get back together in another thread things will get interesting again (they always do) been going on for years I think I will try to stay out of the beef next time and only watch !

Yea I need to watch some I have about 20 + recent DVD rips I need to watch. I like to watch them as main movie ISO w/o the previews and all
that and upscale them to 1080p before they get to the TV(s) this computer has a much better scaler than you would usually find in a TV or most up scaling players PS 3 is VG though .


Vapor ware IMO anyway you can't hear what you can't hear ! I have some hires (plenty) Even made some in the studio +(we work with 24/48 sometimes 24/96 only for editing headroom or up loads though B4 mixdown and renderng to 16/44.1 ,encode to mp** or ACC or ALAC . End user 16/44.1 sounds same same 2 me and most humans when we finish .


☺, plenty of hires capable playback chains here like the one I'm listening to right now spinning some Big band needle drops off hdd I ran through a sound editor and DAW and remaster just a touch came out very good I left the original surface noise and all the analog sound in only way to do those old (often RCA ribbon mike )recordings otherwise U kill dynamic range which surprisingly wasn't that bad in 1940's on vacuum tubes neither is overall recording


You can add just a small touch of compression to raise the noise floor , a touch of EQ (they did not have RIAA phono EQ then ) and maybe normalize only certain tracks very judiciously that might be a little woolly hafta be very careful it's one of those situations where all this when using just a little can make something better and a little more can totally ruin it takes some experimentation, do it right you can make some of these ancient needle drops sing. Impossible to do on some already over compressed modern stuff if like that I leave well alone can't put too much lipstick on a pig after all.. A little is usually good a lot is not !☺ I agree that *sometimes pristine less compressed /uncompressed files (with provenience not remasters ) are a good thing if you can break bread for them, has nothing to do with hires argument though. although a good remaster is sometimes useful also but you usually leave those be,


Contrary to popular wisdom adding compression is actually subtracting dynamic range it's not additive in that sense anyway but can add loudness and raise the noise floor and should be used judiciously if at all on real music .
It's expected on hip hop rap though that's part of the deal so the wanna be rap gansta's can blow out they sub woofers in their G rides! ☺☺☺

I listen to lots of other music also not much on rap and hip hop but we hafta do it that's where the business is .

Spinning this big band needle drop off the hdd loud through my PC and amplified 192kHz SC with burr brown DAC and ADAC and aftermarket hi res New Japan Radio op amps (sweet ) into Sennsheiser pro studio phones it's my bedroom set up the studio is a whole different universe but it's usually busy working wit my crew in there I don't work in there much(very little ) unless something goes haywire .

@ tubetwister, please don't watch that twisted spoiler just above; it might shook up your tube a little.

And thx for taking the time to elaborate on your overall multiverse impressions on the world we've been living in for the last six hundred trillion light years. You are one-of-a-kind, with a lot of good things to say. I like people who have ideas and like to share them with people who listen.

Keep a cool attitude, @ all times; you are a good asset to all mindset. Stay clear of tranches, with them artillery people in them.
Play your skills with people of a similar caliber; like scientists for example. ...And illusionists too.

Might have to put it on my list have the 20+ movies on hdd to watch about 365 + movies and things in my Netflix watch list couple of hundred in Amazon Prime Instant library lots to watch and stuff getting added to lists all the time
probably will never watch it all but lots of choices ended up watching "the Breakfast club " once more stumbled on it channel surfing on Dish haven't seen it for eons still pedantic ,juvenile and funny ! lots of funny dialogue. (Molly Ring world was a cute little number back then also ) I was still way to old for that back then in 85 when the movie was made though .


No direct discussion with (you know who) yet fine with me his methodology obfuscation and continually changing narratives gives him 0 credibility with me and most of the egg heads I imagine besides the results are useless in a practical sense anyway .He's just stroking his ego probably because his squeeze aint stroking him no more or there ain't nothing to stroke ha ha☺☺ Favorite debunker Arny is laying low he might be busy recording a concert or something
being Sunday and all (one of his side businesses ) rest of the usuall cool debunkers doing fine though nobody's bleeding anyway .

Saw the exploding head spoiler no big deal lightweight (poorly done ) Photoshop scum .
Seen a lot worse for real on all expenses paid (except for your habits) vacation in Southeast Asia!

That video was tame by comparison (in that it was fake too) and no real life sounds explosions smoke ,screams or smells, A PC monitor or TV or even a movie screen can not approach that terror (one of those things one should never have to experience up close and personal bty)

Anyone tells you they weren't scared over there (or any war)is either not of sound mind (not hard to take leave of ones mind temporarily or longer in some cases in these situations things get down to the basics in a hurry in the bush )
or lying for whatever reasons maybe simply because like most of us and our older and younger comrades we don't care to relive those paid vacations !Smart ones in any conflict do what they have to do to keep them and their comrades regular ,rotate out and don't look back and don't think about the issues just do the job and get out , In a sane world Civilians can't and shouldn't have to understand it that's the whole point doesn't always work out that way unfortunately !nuff said.

I was 7 in 59 imagine different universe certainly a different quite possibly better time for some maybe not so much for others but very different .

just looked 365 entries in Netflix queue haft-ta get busy lots of good documentaries there also many of the newer
WWII films are excellent if not somewhat realistically graphic amazing what they can do now. I like watching
them though a lifelong fascination with that time in history et al; not much on later war films for obvious reasons
back to WWII we actually did save the world then interesting time of history for a couple of decades both preceding and one following WWII the late 30's 40's and 50's even the 60's were *some of the most fascinating and world changing* times in recent history downhill from there at times for some though IMO.

Be cool ,cool will tune in again soon

It's a cool flick; I enjoyed it the first time (didn't fall asleep). ...Some good stuff in it; overall of it.

Luc Besson, one of the producers, co-writer and story provider, plays a big part. /// Love that guy.
