It seems Philharmonic Audio is really getting their name out. They are putting out lots of new speakers.
Movies, like speakers are highly subjective! In my minds there are rare movies that are great movies with great soundtracks- let me rephrase that, movies that I really enjoyed for the plot/acting and had a great sound track. For me, EoT, Oblivion (funny, I was never a fan of Tom Cruise in action movies, but these two have me thinking), Battle for LA, 2012, Lone Survivor (in part because elements of it were true) and about dozen other movies do both entertain and provide a great soundtrack. Hero, a late 80s Dustin Hoffman classic is a GREAT movie, but has no real soundtrack. I recently purchased the Dirty Harry Series on BR, but not much soundtrack in those, like most 70s movies.
I have a whole collect of Zombie moves that are one, great soundtracks, but not the other! Godzilla 2014, very poor movie, but man it has some really good special affects and great LFE!
But if a movie is either a great movie OR has a great soundtrack, well, I don't regre watching it. So SA and JP both had enough to make me say, okay, but not enough to make me feel good about wasting 20 dollars/per (I don't rent or download, I just buy...to many red box movies or Netflix/streaming movie are compressed and don't give you the big boy soundtrack)
