    Do you pop in a DVD and go straight to play movie or do you do some foreplay to get in the mood? The reason I'm asking is I don't always feel comfortable going straight into a movie with the volume near reference. I sometimes put in a CD and listen to a few songs at a fairly loud volume to prepare me.

    To paraphrase Cube Gooding, Jr.:

    Show Me the Movie!

    I used to watch the trailers and other extras first, but now I head straight for the film.

    No no I have to be in the mood before I get up and plop it in.
    Depends on the movie, for 'The Exorcist', I usually perform a full exorcism before the movie starts to get in the mood, repeatedly shouting "the Power of Christ compels you" at Sandra usually brings out the devil in her.
    To get in the mood for 'Caligula' we invite friends round for a good old fashioned Roman Orgy and we soon lose interest in actually watching the movie.
    If its a movie I've been looking forward too than I just put it on and watch it, than usually a few mins later I take it out when whatsername says she wasn't looking forward to it, ho hum.[​IMG]

    I thought from the subject that 'foreplay' referred to watching the trailer first. [​IMG] Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.

    Movie first but I don't play them that loud, though my wife would disagree. I'm usually about 12-15db below reference.

    Before I watch a movie, I usually let a few tracks froma music CD play. I do this to give the amp time to warm up a bit. I found that this does make quite a difference.

    The television is also turned on for about 10 minutes before watching a movie. Those darn RPTVs take a while before they give their best picture.

    I put the movie in to watch the movie, forget the foreplay. After I see the film I worry about the other stuff.
