I don’t remember anyone mentioning the movie Us on here, so here it goes. This is written/directed by Jordan Peele, the guy that made Get Out (I enjoyed Us quite a bit more). It’s a rare movie in that it had me completely engaged/entertained at the same time. After it was done I was immediately thinking about what just happened, which led to a fun discussion with the people I watched it with.

As for the HT side of it, the pic was good but what modern movie doesn’t look good, unless it’s some crazy low budget film. The audio was above average as there were a number of impactful directional ques circling around us (still slumming it with regular old 7.1). The music was used nicely throughout and added quite a bit to their scenes as well.

Recommended!

I am a fan of Jordan Peele's horror/thriller writing.
What makes it more entertaining is knowing his comedy writing as well and knowing that it is coming from the same brain.

I felt Get Out was definitely the better film but really enjoyed Us as well. Just my dos pesos.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Finally bought an AVR! Got a Denon X4500h! Prepping for surround sound when I move in a few weeks. It's 1am so I didn't run Audyssey yet but I'm interested to see how well it does. It also frees up my A500 so I'm going to run it bridged for a bass shaker I made.

We all do dumb things from time to time: staking a tent on a beach, running audyssey calibrations on the fourth of July. So at least you didn't do what a friend and i did a few years back and try and run audyssey on the night of July 3rd/4th lol. Why did we think that would be ok, lol, BOOM/BANG/POP! SH*T!

This weekend is full, next week Tuesday/Thursday would work. Or if next weekend is better, I'd be available during the day Saturday or Sunday.
