Really? Check this out... HTTYD is a legendary torture test as far as I know. Don't get me wrong, Panda still has my favorite sound test in a movie (Tai Lung escape from Prison), but the original...

I was also surprised spot checking Dragon 2 that the fun room shuttering OOMPH wasn't there. (And my sub isn't really that beefy compared to most around here.)

It's a repeat of Kung-Fu Panda....

I stay away from RC as well. I just stick with a moderate amount of sharpness applied and the majority of the time, that's more than enough for me. :-)

It's more than that though. It's HT, not multi-channel, vs 2 channel. Heck, I like my speakers behind an AT screen. That's a sin right there! :)
