Well, it appears as if I AM going to be double dipping since I'm pretty certain the inevitable 4K release won't have the 3D blu ray thrown in. I'll get the 3D version now and 4K later. I still love...

I have mixed emotions - I love this movie and I hate Disney all at the same time. But they know we will buy it now and buy it later in 4K/Atmos. Those slimy buggers...

Thanks for the review, Lee. I just picked this up today based on your review. I can't wait to watch it. Is this a movie with good replayability?

Ok, so now people who run external amplification with modern AVRs are delusional audiophools? Got it. Grats - you've just been added to my ignore list.

Well, calling people delusional certainly isn't going to gain you friends, bud. At any rate, 70W is a best case scenario with only two channels driven. But whatever. I did what I thought was right...

Always for 3D, never for 2D. It's that simple. For 3D, CFI really helps with preventing the images from separating in fast motion scenes - it makes 3D way easier on the eyes. For 2D, I'm so used...

I guess I prefer to err on the side of caution, is all. And as much as I hate to admit it, I am getting older so my hearing probably isn't as awesome as it used to be. Of course I don't want to go...

I may have my math wrong, but those speakers are recommended to have 180W @ 16 Ohms. For My Anthem 720 at 2 channels driven, it outputs 140W @ 8 Ohms. It would be outputting ~70W, then, @16 Ohms. ...

This was the conundrum I had when I got my 603DCBM ceiling speakers. They're also 16 Ohm. I played it safe and got an Emotiva 2 channel amp just for them. I don't know if it was totally necessary,...

Keep checking Ebay. I got a pair for $999. They are a phenomenal speaker. They're way better than the IW62 IMHO. The box is ready to go and they just seem to put out way more sound. The boxes I...

Native Atmos and DTS:X movies are great, but I'm amazed at how awesome the upmixing works. For legacy blu ray movies, the soundtrack melds into my ceiling speakers while keeping the dialog in the...

Sonic, OK, what would you rather do, listen to movies in 2.1 with good speakers or 5.1 with decent speakers? I'd get the receiver first and get into Atmos then upgrade later. If you're replacing,...

Nice! Going from gunshots sounding like "pew, pew, pew" to a heart thumping "pow, pow, pow" truly makes the sub build worth it. Try also watching the scene from Skyfall where Bond is trying to...

That little dwarf scout girl flirts like hell but she won't put out. I don't think she's a romance option either.

I'm excited about the DTS:X, but I'll be waiting until they release them all as a boxed set. It's so ridiculous that they aren't doing that. Too greedy, I guess.

Who am I kidding? I'll end up picking it up also because it's a Tom Cruise film. His last number of films have been golden IMHO. Even if this one is mediocre I'm sure I'll still enjoy it. I...

Soooo much better than wired, but I remember having to do a bit of messing around in windows 10 to get it to recognize the controller. Google is friendly, though.

A well done 3D movie on a large screen is a sight to behold, so I'll be sad if it goes away. As far as curved TVs...not necessary. They are meant for projection systems that have an anamorphic lens...
