I could go on for days..... smile.gif )

It's a fun one, alright. I still need to watch Oz. Jack the Giant Slayer just arrived today. They all should have stellar AQ/PQ.

Only in your theater. No problems on my end. Oh that's right you're on the short bus when it comes to electronics.

My theater doesn't need a plastic signal manipulation device (PSMD). I read in Popular Science the Drablet was designed for you old geezers with old man eyes. The short bus rocks. We have a/c and get to wear these neat helmets.

Hey there, Prepress.

It's the state baseball tournament. After two really long days, we made it into the championship bracket. We start again tomorrow at 8am. No rest for the wicked.

I cant believe they actually made a film like that. Sharknado lol isnt that the guy from Beverley Hill 90210 and its also got Tara Reid. I guess when times are tough and no roles are handed to you sharknado looks great. Still laughing that some funny ****.

Mate the audio at the theatre was horrible. The dialog was low but the LFE was too hot absolutely horrible. No balance in the audio, when the action scenes came on the lfe takes precedence while the surrounds and fronts were lower. I remember watching star trek in the theatre, fantastic perfect balance. Anyway I will wait until it comes out on blu.
post #1254 of 1294

Sharknado!!!! lol....maybe the surround mixing of the Sharknado is reference quality?  Perhaps the LFE of the sharks impacting the ground goes down to 3Hz?  :-)

This is some of Hollywoods finest cheese. C'mon, Franin. You know you wanna watch it. Have you seen Sharktopus? Or Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, starring Debbie Gibson and Tiffany? Instant classics with extra cheese.biggrin.gif

Yeah, too much LFE ruins the whole experience. You want a nice balance. Makes you appreciate our HTs a lot more.

Don't know if you guys get the Syfy channel down there. They will be airing it (here at least) 7/18. Set your DVR.cool.gif

I thought the movie both looked and sounded great. We saw it in IMAX 3D. The battles with Zod were nothing less than epic.

Frank--I saw this in a top notch theater with proper audio.  Believe me--the audio in the Man of Steel film is absolutely absolutely absolutely amazing!!!  Everything about this film screamed reference; I can't wait until it comes out on Blu Ray.  This and Star Trek Into Darkness are the two A/V Powerhouses of 2013.  I am curious about Elysium though--it looks like it might have the elements of an A/V treat and the director, Neil Blomkamp, is a favorite of mine from his District 9 days. (He was supposed to direct the Halo movie, until that fell through the cracks.)

Reading that from both you and Wabo there is a sigh of relief. I can't wait to pick it up on Blu
