@d_c hosted an informal movie night last night in his new home theater, it is a fantastic space indeed! I loved the look he achieved and I guess it shouldn't surprise me how well it turned out, having seen what Doug did in his living room theater upstairs. Everything came together very nicely, the bar, the fireplace, the ceiling, the screen, the giant salt water aquarium. The kids room and bathroom that Doug installed turned out great! While we encountered a few gremlins, the system sounded great, and the bass was hotter than a firecracker. The hair on my head was vibrating, and at one particular moment my face felt squeezed like my eyes were crushing together. 2dB hot my rear.


Those 24"ers firing directly into your back from the bar table/subwooferbox combo is something to experience, and the most fun you can have this side of a suspended wooden floor.


A very enjoyable time, and I really enjoyed the Martin City Stout you shared from your Keg. That's my first taste of that, it won't be my last.
It was fun to visit and catch up. Thanks for the evening!

Dang bud, that's why I don't fish. Don't like to take unnecessary risks like that.

Mario is incredible. It is the same kind of fun I remember from gaming on the NES when Mario Bros blew my mind. The sense of wonder and exploration is unequaled. Those creators have more imagination than they know what to do with.

This time around there are plenty of other exclusive PS4 games to justify your purchase.

But even if it was just for that game......I know quite a few PC gamers who upgrade their entire rig just for one game!

The special edition PS4 Pro God of War edition looks pretty good. Could be for you. Available 4/20....just sayin.

Also debuting 4/20.

Grant and all,

I read tonight that you can play Atmos back on Netflix in one of three ways right now.

Xbox One X or Xbox S
LG TVs
Or Windows 10 Netflix App.

I tried the Windows 10 Netflix App, because I don't have the other two and confirmed it works with a couple of the movies. My AVR flipped to Dolby Atmos and there was definitely discreet sound coming from my ceiling speakers.

Now to figure out which of the Atmos content I want to watch.

Yeah those three platforms have been the only ones supported since last summer. In addition the vanilla Xbox like mine will bitstream atmos.

Most of those demos in the Dolby Atmos app are good. There is no great way to see all atmos content on Netflix that I know of except for using it as a search term.

The punisher and Cloverfield paradox are my favorites. We are just now seeing more titles. The bass is quite a bit better in native atmos.

I watched the Hotel Artemis trailer today. If that hospital isn't a blatant rip-off of the hotel in the John Wick movie, then I don't know what is.

That said, the casting looks fun.

@jedimastergrant ,

I tried to watch Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix last night per your recommendation, and I couldn't make it past about the first 30 minutes. The premise is interesting, but I just can't do scary movies alone in my home theater. My heart can't take it. I quit when the first scare occurred and the woman was trapped in the wall melded with the ship's wiring after the malfunction. I paused the movie to look up the plot on Wikipedia and see if it got crazier or if it was something I thought I could handle. Reading through the plot I decided I wasn't willing to endure the fright.

The sounds with atmos are just too much. I've never been a fan of horror and been susceptible to jumping and that's just easily compounded with a good dark home theater and 7.2.4 setup, and nearfield subs thumping my back, and trying to watch a movie like that alone.

My wife, when we first got married, said she liked scary movies, and made fun of me for being a chicken. Now she won't do them either. I think her change of heart is related to the home theater experience. She'd never been around any kind of home theater space, and there's certainly a big difference between watching a scary movie in a well lit living room with a 27" TV, vs. watching a scary movie in a dark home theater with full surround sound and a huge picture.

Any rate - I wanted to watch it for the Atmos and soundtrack that, yes, I could immediately tell would be fun! The sound with the malfunction was fantastic --- but I took the chicken exit. Maybe I'll watch it on the LCD upstairs during the day with 15% volume. Yeah that'll be manly!

Slowly raising hand while shaking and whispering “me too”!

I can’t do some of the horror movies out there. I can do almost all of the monster stuff but not the human violence plots. A great deal of the horror out there is too twisted and disturbing. I’m already warped enough as it is.

I Agree on the HT experience elevating the horror genre to levels that can be uncomfortable. I remember the first time I watched Alien in my blacked out room by myself with the volume fairly high. I have seen the movie many times and it is one of my favorites. But I found myself completely unnerved and I actually turned the volume down just so I could stay seated in my chair and finish the movie.

Also I went with some other guys to IT and I was half jumping out of my chair while making girl like noises and the other dudes hardly budged. Except for the scene with the water in the basement......that will scare anyone with a pulse.

You already saw the best immersive scene at the start of Cloverfield Paradox anyway.

Sounds like we are going to lose some heroes. Any guesses on which ones?

My guess would be at least Vision not sure who else. Depends on who has movies coming up. Here is a list of new ones to come. I don't think Deadpool is in this.

Maybe. In the comics he and Scarlet Witch are eventually married and have quite a story. Not sure Marvel is ready to kill him off and not use all that material. Evans wants to do more directing and Indie films, so I imagine Cap is a potential goner. Downey Jr. is getting up there in age and $$$ asked for. So he may exit too.

I echo what others are saying on horror films. I still watch them, but at home they do take on another level. I remember watching The Blair Witch Project at The Uptown in the Twin Cities and thinking it was meh. I watched it again at home in pitch black and dead silence and the creepy factor was MUCH higher. Way more intense.

Hopefully the home release is in 1.9:1 if they decide to do the IMAX framing and not cropped to 1.78:1. At least it won't have the shifting AR nonsense to worry about like we get with Nolan's films. I personally am not a fan of the constant picture shifts. I know why he does it, it just pulls me out of the experience.

I echo what others are saying on horror films. I still watch them, but at home they do take on another level. I remember watching The Blair Witch Project at The Uptown in the Twin Cities and thinking it was meh. I watched it again at home in pitch black and dead silence and the creepy factor was MUCH higher. Way more intense.
Similar experience the first time I watched Signs at home. To this day, I still get goosebumps when I look out a window and see a silhouette over a roof-line at night.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

I mean... if it's alien shaped, that's a valid concern, okay?

Both my daughter and I like scary movies - she's on a scary movie kick and likes to invite friends over to watch them down in "her" theater. My wife squeels, kicks her feet, and covers her eyes during pretty much the whole thing, so pretty much like Archaea. I don't like movies where there is a lot of human on human torture and gore - it's weird that it has become so popular in movies like Saw. The sci-fi / fantasy violence or demonic scary horror movie stuff doesn't bother me at all, I like getting tricked in to being spooked, so the build up when you know that something is going to jump out and scare you... I think is awesome.

I think I have an extra pass to Infinity War Saturday night (10:45) at the Olathe 28 Dolby Screen if anyone is interested. Sweet spot seats.
