A home theatre is only good when it's better sound and picture than going to the movies and that's not that hard to pull off haha. Plus, you don't have all the ignorant people around you making noise and distractions to ruin it.

yeah exactly rob. i prefer the sound from my home theater over movie theater. yes the volume is nice and loud at the theater but at home you get the peace and quiet.

My brother's home theater destroys the sound of most theaters around here in both picture quality and sound. It's really loud too.

Well I dont have the hi def screen I just have a reg 27 inch tv I bought like 3 years ago and I just have a regular dvd player but down the road I want to add a hi def tv and a blueray player (ps3) and then build a homemade subwoofer and a new reciever...I have a old onkyo 424 dolby surround reciever (not 5.1) and cerwin vega dx 7's with a 12's mid's and high's for my fronts... they are four ohm speakers but play fine on my onkyo and then for my center channel I have a advent dual 5.25 setup with a tweeter and for rears I have advent mini 5.25's with a tweeter then for my subwoofer I have a 10 inch onkyo ported box with a built in 120 watt amp and while these arent the best brands it does sound pretty good and gets pretty loud...in case your wondering why advent...I used to have advent prodigy towers in place of the cerwin vegas...it was back when I thought the bose 301's were good and the advent prodigys sounded better for $100 less a set...it was only later that I learned they were made by the same people who made jensen...but to listen to them you wouldnt know it...and they had very good imaging...they had one eight and a tweeter but sounded like they had a mid in there

yeah I know what you mean about noises and distractions they can be annoying but I love the huge movie theater screen and it has pretty good resoloution...not to mention you dont have to wait for it to come out to rent it

Chad..."well mine is loud but i just can't crank it up. i have to think of others."

me too...I live in a apartment building and the lady below me wouldnt like it very much if I cranked it up

btw the reasons i like my ht over movie theaters.

i already have a 92" screen for my projector.
i can drink beer.
i can eat real food.
i could be having s3x while watching.
i could lay down and watch.
so much more.....lol.

only advantage for me to go to the theater is if i want to watch the movie when it first came out. but seeing how fast the movies come out on dvd these days, i'll wait.

honestly only reason i would go to the theater is if i am with a girl and there really isn't much to do or i don't feel like spending too much money.

I've been looking into projectors for quite some time myself. I'm just intimidated by the $$ you have to shell out for a decent picture brightness/lumens. Not to mention the picture quality during daylight hours.



I really want one for the huge screen size though ya know lol?

ok...now my movie review of 10000 BC...in a word it stinks...ok two words haha...the movie was drug out with ocassional action filled moments and some decent scenes that you could take in the special effects (mostly because of the lack of action in the movie) and the movie was pretty predictable and I could tell you why but that would give away what little story line there is to this movie...my advice wait to see it on video if you must see it...or if you do go see it give us your review

the screen is important too paul. i spent 600 bux on a screen made by this company called da-lite. the background is light grey and its just hangs on the wall. not the one you roll up or something.

You are going to need a specialty type of paint if you are going to use your wall. The thing with projectors is that you lose light when the image is projected onto a screen if there are not enough reflective material on the screen itself.

Try doing a search on "screen goo".

Well outside light isn't a factor for me. My gameroom is below grade and very little light if any comes through the small windows. I've been impressed with the projectors I've seen some of our presentators use for meetings and conventions. Even with the lights on it threw a picture bright enough for 50 ppl to see 25' away. We use Dell projectors. Now dim the lights and you're there.



I guess I'm also worried about longevity. With gaming and my son's constant use I wonder about bulb life even though ppl say that's 10,000's of hours.

Gaming should not be done on a projector. That is a lot of bulb hours wasted.

Get him a separate TV for gaming...that's what I do.

Shucks. The Wii is downstairs in the gameroom.



I guess I could always pretend to be rich and buy a 52" flat screen on the wall and have a pull down screen in front of it for the projector lol.

My brother-in-law just bought a 52" Samsung from Sears. 2 years no interest payments. After employee discount he got it for $1800. Thing is freaking amazing. Paul had an itchy trigger finger that day lol.

I saw it on Saturday early so it was only 5 bucks. I'd say the movie was alright at best. I would not have been happy if I had paid 10 bucks to see it. Like Sean said, it's a bit too drawn out and slow paced and the action isn't even very good. I love how they pretty much stole a huge part of 300. I wouldn't recommend that anyone go and see it at theaters.

Well alot was said about the recent King Kong movie. I personally loved it. It was just as far away from the original script as needed yet enhanced by today's technology in special effects. Plus my kids could watch it and be entertained.

Yeah I liked the new King Kong for pretty much the same reasons Paul. And the special effects were very nice with just a tad of pushing the limits (once in a while) where you could see the flaws. One of my favorite parts of the movie is the dinasuar chase scene. Its 2 minutes 1 second in on this clip

Sean - yup that is what i do. ps3's can only read certain formats though. usually everything i get is .avi type, then coding a movie only takes about a quarter of its length. transferring to my external HD takes less than a minute. very handy to bring around to friends houses and such :-)

Paul - its very simple. few clicks and maybe a couple flash games to pass the time haha.

Chad - thank you. you are in fact the man.
