So I have an Onkyo RC360 setup with Energy RC-LCR Fronts, VS Surrounds and RC-10 rears.

I have had this setup for a about 7 months now and love it. I calibrated everything with Audassay when I first bought and things were great.

I have been away for a few weeks and haven't played games or movies on it for a while.

This week I finally had time to watch TV, Movies and play some games and this is where I am second guessing myself

It seems for movies, cable tv and games, I need to turn my receiver to volume 50 to get mid/high Volume and really crank it to 60 for very loud play. Noticed this while watching Oblivion last night

I always thought I used to have the receiver on 35-40 and it was insanely loud (this is where I second guess myself since Ive been away for a long while). Could it be the movie I was watching had a softer sound track? My Reference Level is set to 0

Is it normal to have my receiver at 50-60?

Very possible its the movie.

Maybe you should recalibrate your system by running Audyssey again.

Have no idea what 50-60 means in reference to a volume level. All my receivers are setup where the volume is a negative number and as it gets louder the number gets closer to 0.
