    The upcoming DVD for Clockstoppers, the family-oriented sci-fi adventure directed by Jonathan Frakes, has a fantastic main-title sequence that offers a great demo of Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. The directional effects are fantastic and the rear-channel action aggressive. It's all computer graphics that mimic clockworks and time-related imagery, including pendulums that swing toward the viewer with accompanying coming-at-you swooshes. The movie itself also is fun, and there is fine surround sound elsewhere. I just wanted to give folks a heads up about the opening titles, because they're lots of fun. My daughter made me play them three times.

    Just rented it and finished watching it. Cute movie. The opening did sound cool. I was dissapointed in the lack of LFE in the movie. The only part that stood out was toward the end when they turn on the "moleculer stabilizer"(sp?).
    Honestly, I could care less about anything in the movie. All I did is stare at Paula Garces the whole time. [​IMG]

    I saw this at the movies back in April. Not a good movie, best part is the first time the kids use that Clockstopping watch they have, the rest of the movie is ho-hum.

    Though Paula Garces is beautiful.

    This one is a rental for me to hear the DD 5.1
