I quit watching all network TV years ago, except for a couple hold-outs and SYTYCD was one of them.

That's a good way of describing it and that's the way I've been describing 3D lately. I was a 3D fan at first but after the novelty wore off everything just looks off and forced; an uncanny valley...

Agreed!

Can't agree with you on the film though. Although I understand and even agree with a lot of the criticisms, there was so much about it I liked that I had a hell of a time! :)

Hi all. I remember back in the day it was recommended that when you get a new set to leave it on for 24 hours while still in the warranty period.

AMC Century City 15 is listed as "coming soon" for Dolby Cinema and has been for a while. I wonder if they have this movie as a target date?

"best" is subjective; every theater has it plusses and minuses
