I think I will try recording that movie again and see if I get the same results. It was recorded on my Dish 722 from Epix2 HD.
Something seems off I am assuming its a LFE heavy scene as far as I can recall so something is overloading the Receiver. Is your wiring OK (You mentioned Banana Plugs but a strand or two might be loose) I do get a cut sound once in a while when there is a huge explosion on the screen I am also using banana plugs. I do play it quite high though almost -5 DB so -25 db shouldn't be a problem. I am assuming you are using the dreaded HDMI?
Can you connect your system with an optical cable?
Also can you try a cold start (keep your AVR shut for a couple of hours and start the movie at the same spot when you turn the AVR on)
I did watch Super 8 and recall a similar issue but I was playing the movie loud.
Otherwise I would replicate the same issue with just the front speakers plugged in, then front and centre and then rears. That way you can narrow it down what trips it off. Keep us posted.
