Not sure if this thread belongs here, but... I love the dynamic home theater experience you get from a movie like The Matrix and TPM. The "knock the wind out of you" bass and very active surround channels giving you an "in your face" cinematic experience. But how amazing it is to be drawn so completely into a film that is more subtle. Was watching K-PAX and how wonderful it was to be lost in the film because of the quiet detailed surround and the soundtrack. So much of which is never really noticed because we spend so much time in that quest for the BEST demo material. We all got into home theater for various reasons...but I think most because we love movies. How much better every movie is on even the most modest system. Enjoy the "shoot em up" movies, but I stopped to smell the roses...and they are sweet.
