Yeah, it was pretty over the top and had some real cringe-worthy moments. The comic can be fun, but a character based on sheer violence can be hard to sell as a movie. Off topic from the MCU, but I...

I think the success had more to do with fan anticipation(Origins) and the limited offerings at the time(Last Stand). I know I paid to see both and I know I left wishing I had my money back. Now...

Yeah, I remember watching the Lundgren version as a kid when it came out, pretty awesome as a 10 year old, pretty lame as a 34 year old. I'm not sure how they could make a successful one, it pretty...

With what the MCU films have grossed, I doubt anyone there is crying about it too much. Though, I'm sure there are some executives that see the dollar signs and wish for a time machine. As a fan...

I liked how they described Brett Ratner as "the cinematic equivalent of a wood chipper". Not a lot of good things to say about that guy.

This is the reason I wish Marvel/Disney had the rights to all the properties even if it would probably be abused with too much crossing over. The fact that The Avengers and X-Men: Days of Future...

They should just support the original, I can't imagine it getting any worse. I did enjoy the cameo at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy though, gave me a good chuckle.

My solution would be to see if the TV has a setting to disable its speakers.

I always test it before I place them in a rack, if it doesn't work they can always be placed locally with an HDBaseT transmitter. I've had them work upwards of 40 feet away through walls,...

ARC will only get you stereo audio through the app, it only passes 5.1 from OTA programming. An optical cable from the TV to the receiver is the only way you will get surround from the app.
