One of the few about whom there can be no hyperbole and whose importance can't be overstated.

Ahh, strange as they usually use "DTS HD" as code for Atmos. ;) Would've been a buy anyway - worth it just for the Mantis!

This one (San Andreas) was a real blast to watch, non-stop immersion and slam - loads of fun. It helps to think of it as a ride, as opposed to a film. It's an awesome ride. Will watch again!

Watched this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it - what a blast. More a ride than a movie! And even the plot was fun as my cousin and I gave it the MST3k treatment - such rich source material. ;)

Funny you mention that, I remembered I have to stop at BB later anyway so I cancelled my Amazon order and will pick it up there. Same price and I have to pay tax either way.

That would make for a lopsided front stage, Seth, I couldn't do that to you.

Keith - I picked up the 3D version - only $8 more for the extra disc. May lend itself well to it.

I finally got my hands on this disc and it's loads of fun - I agree that Amaze is the most awesome. I'd briefly brought my Roku 3 down to the theater to stream these on Vudu but don't remember them...

Mississippi Man - you helped me about 10 years ago with a light fusion screen applied on a mirror I picked up at Acme plastics. Very interested in this new one!

I am so all over this. I'm a knee-jerk Beatles multi-dipper, but more stuff like "Love" is worth whatever it costs.

Funny, the mono vinyl box is the polar opposite of a 5.1 BD audio, yet I shall...

I just meant the DTS HD reference when it's really Atmos. :) I maintain a NF Blu-Ray subscription for the same reasons you do. I don't re-watch many movies, so don't purchase many.
