If you actually talk to SVS they will tell you that the feet will likely do nothing for you in your situation (carpet over concrete) and they've actively talked me out of buying the feet twice now....

I didn't have any trouble with the dialogue in Interstellar in either the theater or at home last week.

That scene was out of focus when I saw it at the theater (I distinctly remember it as it pulled me out of the story), so I assume it is a mistake of the original photography.

Just in case anyone ordered from Amazon in the last week, the price went down $1 from the release day and you can ask for a refund on that (since it's been less than 7 days). I know it's only a buck,...

I noticed that the Darbee brought out a little more detail in the shadows on my W1070, but nothing dramatic. I would pay more attention to a proper brightness/contrast setting than hoping the Darbee...

Penguins of Madagascar

Tier 0

While not the top of the tier, I think this one falls into the middle of the animated titles pack. It was clear and wonderful looking, but didn't have any truly...

I watched it in the theater and anxiously awaited the blu-ray announcement so that I could pre-order it. I highly recommend it even if you don't like it as "one of those movies you should watch."...

It took me five layers of masking tape with black sharpie to get the light to where it wasn't distracting: I can still see it even then when the lights are out. So, if one layer of tape doesn't work,...

I really enjoyed Predestination from a story perspective. I figured out where it was going about halfway through, but I thought the movie was quite good.

I think the Govt fixing mistakes (or tangentially trying to) does not equal "MORE govt" in the derogatory sense that you imply. But, YMMV.

I want to clarify that it's not that the RED EPIC and others don't produce more sharp or clear images than the ARRI ALEXA, it's that the slight blur to the ARRI (if it can be called a "blur"),...

It sort of stands to reason that if you have a $10,000 projector, then the $200 little box isn't going to do as much as when you apply the $200 box to a $800 projector or TV. That's my thoughts on...

I really like "Every Frame a Painting" for the analysis on film. One of my favorite YouTube channels and one of the few that I'll watch when new content comes out.

I agree with Phantom on Rio 2 (or the first one, either), they just didn't "blow me away" the way that Big Hero 6, Monster's University, and Toy Story 3 did.
