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.
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
i need to get a new projector though. one which supports blu-ray. i bought my infocus projector like 5 years ago. lol. but its still clean. i just can't watch tru blu-ray format cause the projector only goes up to 1080i.
my dad is wanting to get into ht. so he went and bought like a 72in samsung DLP mirror thing.. he shows up with it.. randomly.. considering he just bought a sony 61inch or something like that about 2 years ago.. oh well i got the old tv.. lol.
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?

cant complain about that
Eric..."i can just d/l a movie, convert to divx, transfer to my external HD, and play it right off my ps3"
are you saying you can play the movie right from the hard drive connected to your ps3...I didnt no you could do that
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
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.
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.
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.
