I concur with each point Russ! I placed it at 1.25 so we're basically on the same page.

I did end up buying a set of Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones (for $178 on Amazon...regular price is anywhere from $229 to $249) and I absolutely love them! I did a burn-in the first two days...

Good People

I wish I had a dollar for every movie that I've seen where naive (in this case "good" and "naive") people find a large amount of money hidden and they're stupid enough to keep it! If I...

IEMs...Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE....I'm a Bass lover and these exaggerate the bass WITHOUT muddying the Mid-range or Treble. They sound AMAZING!

Hey Russ,

I had never heard of such a thing, but I would do an Advanced Search on the Forum to see if you can find others having the same problem. Perhaps you did get a bad disc that was...

FWIW, this is NOT your normal Disney "movie for kids." It takes itself more seriously and has more violence than you'd expect to see for a Disney production. I wouldn't encourage my youngest...

My memory didn't serve me well, for The Wolf of Wall Street had a staggering 507 F-bombs dropped in its 180 minute running time, which figures out to 2.8 per minute. Sabotage had about 200 (the...

I had a heads-up on The Wolf of Wall Street, so I didn't even rent it. I believe it set a record for the most occurrences of the F-bomb (over 200, if memory serves). I have a feeling that Sabotage...

Yes, we are Russ. I just thought I'd use your last two placements, which were higher than mine, to slip in a very weak joke. ;)

So, where is Hertfordshire in relation to London? (I could Google it...

When I checked to see where I had placed it I saw that I had quoted GRG, for he raved about the PQ and gave it a 1.25.

Once again we're separated by a half of a tier in our ranking (I recommended 1.0 for this one). If this keeps up Russ you're going to resurrect my old reputation as "the most generous rater" on the...

My biggest gripe was the pervasive language. F-bombs were spewing out of mouths every minute from nearly every actor and I, for one, am taken out of the movie when that happens. That, along with...

I did NOT watch the whole movie (I thought it was quite bad and the pervasive profanity was sickening), but what I did see had exemplary PQ. Details abounded in every shot, especially...
