    Default 2012 movie review

    Just got back from the movie and it was good but the audio was **** and the cinema left a horrible throw making the bottom half of the screen wider . This could have been keystoned and the whole time the trailers were on I was for sure thinking it would be corrected by the time the main feature came on . This ruined what was a great action movie

    This is one that will be worth waiting for on Blu. Why waste $8+ going to the theater?
    If...
    Ron dislikes a film = go out and buy it.
    Ron loves a film = don't even rent.

    I discovered that a few years ago when I realized my HT sounded better than the real thing. And that was when I was using an AVR to drive 4 LSi15s.

    My wife sees every single movie that comes out.

    She goes for Free, Her sister is a manager at the big AMC on 34th street in NYC and my mother-in-law has a card that gets 3 free tickets for every single movie, even if the movie is on opening day.

    The last movie I saw was transformers and then got into projectors then dove into audio so going to the theater was a real eye opener of just how impersonal the experience is

    Not to mention the stench of other people and the flew viruses that get hacked around or the noises

    Man, it sounds like you guys have some bad theaters. The one over by me has great audio and video, is clean, and has (p)leather seats.

    I used to never go to the theater, but there's something about that experience that I now enjoy. I will probably go see this next weekend, but don't have much hope for it.

    Saw it...hated it. It was at least 30 minutes to long, very bad Hollywood cliche acting and storyline.

    The good about it was the special effects were very good, audio was also very good (Harkins Theaters).

    The Day After Tomorrow was much better....but is that really saying much?

    It was about what I expected. Good dumb fun with a lot of stuff blowing up. But you have to wonder where Roland Emmerich is gonna go from here. I mean... he essentially destroys the world. What's next?

    My date that i brought hated it but i liked it. The way the ground always just seemed to crack up a few inches behind them whether they were taking off on a runway or driving in a car was soooooo far fetched

    But as many have said the special effects made this movie a must see

    He'll do a movie about God putting it all back together again.

    I guess this movie is the Prequel Water World?

    5/10? Flashbacks of Day After Tomorrow kept running through my head throughout the movie...
