    Great job, Sam and Brian. That’s a fun listen and I had fun guessing the clips before you named them :)

    I host and produce a podcast for the company I work for (internal only) so can appreciate the hard work put in to producing this one, you did a bang up job. Great hosting, interesting conversation, and some recommendations for movies that I want to go back and check out the audio on! I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes. Bravo!

    I’ll add that for the longest time I’d use the Klendathu bug swarm attack in Starship Troopers and the end explosion from The Mask of Zorro as audio demo in my set up at the time. The visual and audio barrage in the Starship Troopers scene was always a big hit!

    One of my favorite demo scenes that I have played for others was the Diva's performance in The Fifth Element.

    When I got my first Front Projector (way back when they weren't in common HT usage) I would use the gunfight at the conclusion of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly to convey what widescreen composition looked like on a 100 inch screen.

    - Walter.

    Thank you sir. I think you listened to it and 'played along' as we intended. :) Glad you liked it!

    Totes bro. Looking forward to digging into our giant list!

    Starship Troopers! I only have this on DVD, but maybe this is worth upgrading because that scene was amazing!

    GB&U is a film I have not seen. On my list to purchase eventually!

    If you're even a casual fan of Spaghetti Westerns or Clint Eastwood you're in for a treat sir. I would suggest the below. These are on my annual viewing list. Someone on here once asked me if I really watched select films annually. The answer was a resounding "yes." Honestly, I've even watched the same film twice in a single day so maybe I do need help. :)

    I remember doing stuff like this when DVD first hit the streets. Always tried to find the best "WOW!" movies at the time. Like in 2000 when Jurassic Park came out. That was always fun to crank up.

    Don't do it now but it was fun when discs first started.

    Thanks again guys. I hadn't had time before today to listen to the complete podcast. Some great recommendations and orders have been placed for the ones I don't already own, save TMNT and Transformers. Gotta draw the line somewhere.

    On the topic of 3D, I love it but it doesn't look like 4K projectors will have the requisite brightness to do it justice anytime soon. This is part of my reason for holding off on purchasing mine.

    Out of print perhaps? I wonder if they'll make more available for the upcoming holiday shopping season.

    Haha, totally understand.
