as I've stated before, you're one of the few reviewers I actually ever bother to read because I enjoy your take and appreciate your ability to equally review serious movies AND popcorn...

I enjoyed the 2D presentation and can't wait to check it out in 3D with the volume cranked up.

I have to say though, some of the rapid motion action was a little too quick for my tastes at 24fps...

Yup, they're viewable now.

Have you tried different placements for the sub to see where you can get the best no-EQ response? If you're using a 150Hz XO for the LR, it looks like it could be...

asere, when clicking on the thumbnails, the links are coming up as 'invalid'. Might be more teething problems from the forum switch.

Yes, I noticed this too. The first time it really stood out was the first scene when he meets his daughter outside the school with his wife.

Something is definitely off with the levels. If you really were hitting those SPLs, you'd be deaf and bleeding from your ears.
