Nice car chase, huh?
Interesting comments wrt the sound, bass etc, ... we saw it in the theater. Your comments inspire me to view it at home.
WRT the gun shots, it would seem to me, most all the most recent films we've enjoyed here on the big system, have had well executed (read over the top), energy and effect. (clearly evidenced upon viewing a film w/lame ass gun play)
The last three evenings, we've enjoyed Black Hawk Down, The Last Stand, and Snitch. Oddly, the latter two surprised me for the genre, I thought they were a fun romp, good film-making...like I said, for the genre. The Last Stand car chase was a bit much
, but the dynamics were crushingly breathtaking at times. The house was moaning and groaning,.. no doubt. BHD, my kids hadn't seen (nor had my wife and I for years). What an outstanding film, in many regards. Although it had a few inaccuracies (only a few), what a significant event historically. I'm a history/military/political junkie,...anything thusly that's transpired over the last 30-40 years, I'm well aware of all essential key elements. What a film .. a great documentation of the event.
Been listening to more and more music,..as I've slowly experimented and tweaked the sub placement and acoustics. In the current scenario, I've found a no EQ, fantastically smooth yet gently rising LF response. I've been evaluating two alternate bass trapping techniques (from my normal, outstanding traps), and just a combo of things came upon a synergy that makes music listening just wonderful.
All too often we get caught up in the gear, tech side of things,... one primary reason for this endeavor (music), oft gets relegated to the back burner. Feel like a kid again.
Thanks for the heads up reminder on Jack Reacher. After an evening at the County Fair, that may just be in the queue.
