    My Atmos Experience

    Might as well start calling this My Auro3D Experience, too! Anyway, Back to the Future sounds great in Auro3D, especially the storm sounds at the end of the movie. And the score soars! With my wife and daughter on their annual end-of-summer trip, I'll be trying out quite a few movies upmixed to Auro3D, my go-to sound in my HT.

    If anyone is a fan of Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you may be interested in the news that Apple has ordered a series written by Charlie Day and Rob McElhenny which takes place at a Video Game Developer. Could be interesting. https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/charlie-day-rob-mcelhenney-apple-comedy-series-1202901078/

    Boardgames & Cardgames, oh my!

    We played Villainous for the first time. I enjoyed it, but think it will be best with four people. Playing with 5 it was hard to keep track of what everyone was doing, as it is all player board based, and everyone has different objectives. We then played a few rounds of Wits and Wagers Party Edition, and a lot of One Night Ult Werewolf for the first time.. Both were a blast. Sometimes it’s fun playing some party games for a few hours.

    I really want to see the details about the in-testing Alamo Pass. That could save us a lot of money. We've got one renovated AMC near us, but I don't like their concession pricing at all, I'd rather go to the Alamo.

    I just finished binging season 3 of Better Call Saul and have caught up after first 2 episodes of season 4. Soooo good. I’ve heard great things about Killing Eve and Marvelous Mrs Maisel. Adding them to the “to watch” list.

    We just finished the first season of Killing Eve last week. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to season 2. I have a few issues with Eve as a character, but not serious, and Sandra Oh is great in it. Villanelle is really interesting. I love smart villains with no remorse and she fits the bill. We also just finished watching season 1 of Marvellous Mrs Maisel on Amazon. Well written, funny, and a great cast.

    It really is awesome, we watched the first half of the season already.

    Watchmen

    Cast announced, series coming 2019 https://www.hbo.com/hbo-news/watchmen-casting-all-you-need-to-know
  13. It's going to be interesting to see how this plays out with the cast, Bautista has been very vocal about his recent displeasure with Disney.

    Has anybody else been watching Killing Eve? We just started getting it in Canada and it’s insanely fucking good. The acting is something else. I can see why Sandra Oh got her Emmy nod, although the actor who does Villanelle really makes her seem next level bonkers. It’s really, really worth the time.

    Progressive Scan Mode?

    Yep and if that doesn’t work and you’ve tested to make sure the GC and cables are good, let FaceTime and I’ll help troubleshoot the receiver settings if you get time open.
  17. I miss the wonder of it. New websites popping up I had never thought of before. New mindblowing technologies that changed it forever like animated gifs and frames. Playing games online for the first time and wondering what it would be like when we had faster connections. Realizing you can download things like mp3s, ROMs and software, and what that meant. And yes, discovering new communities of people that shared your interests and becoming a part of them. There are are lots of things I don’t miss also.
  18. Thanos skipable? The entire movie is about Thanos.

    Films - Watched and thoughts 2018

    Molly's Game - I love Sorkin. Love his stuff. And I enjoyed this very much. I watched on a plane so I sometimes had trouble hearing, but the good movie came through. Infinity War - I'm putting this here because I've now watched the movie 6 times and have a different perspective. Because I found myself fast forwarding to the good parts, which of course, made me realize what the good parts are. I want to strongly emphasize that every scene with Tony Stark, re-watchable. Every scene with spider-man, re-watchable. Gamora and Thanos, skippable. All scenes with Thor where he's not with Thanos, skippable. All dialog scenes with Steve Rogers engaged in dialog, skippable. I adore this movie, obviously. I still hold the original Avengers atop the MCU list, but I could be convinced that Thor 3 or Infinity War is #1. Those are my three favorite movies that I cannot stop watching.

    Progressive Scan Mode?

    You also might want to find another component source and see how the receiver responds.

    Progressive Scan Mode?

    Just got back. Romier, the red HDMI indicator only goes out for a fraction of a second as if the input source is changing but immediately returns and stays on. Yes, I still get audio. My setup is GameCube component cable going into AV1 on receiver, composite cable (red/white only) going into Audio4. Video (yellow) cable is not connected.

    MoviePass

    The AMC one just started recently and some smaller theatres and chains offer them, but it’s not as prevalent yet. Reserved seating is really just starting to be the norm, things are a bit behind here. If I were in the market for one of these services (assuming I lived in the US), the AMC one, to me, makes the most sense (assuming I lived near an AMC) even before all the recent changes to Moviepass. The ability to use it on 3D and Imax, reserve seats, and the better experience in purchasing tickets through the app would be more than worth the extra money. The only way I could get my money’s worth on these right now though would be if they provided babysitting as part of the deal.

    Boardgames & Cardgames, oh my!

    I did make a game purchase today, the Scythe rise of Fenris expansion. Really looking forward to the campaign stuff, but there are a few modules I saw in a preview that are must get IMO. I’ll spoiler tag it.

    Group forms to optimize HDR for Gaming content

    Good. I’ve felt that there should be some kind of recognised standards for HDR in gaming as there is for movies for some time. Comforting to see the major TV manufacturers are on board with this thinking
