I watched the movie once, I think when someone rented it. I haven't watched the full movie since getting the DVD. I only really bought it to stress test my subwoofers. I will probably end up with the Blu-ray for the same reason, when it gets cheap enough. Jurassic Park on Blu-ray would be nice, too.

I had the DVD. I there are four maybe 5 scenes that I liked to listen to.

1. The Jeep getting spit out of the hole.
2. The jet crash.
3. The ferry sinking (propellers)
4. The battle near the farm house (jet fly over launching missiles)
5. the wind chimes before and the electromagnetic storm

Sounds I don't like: Dakota Fanning screaming

A movie I would like to listen to on my Axiom system is, 'The Thirtenth Warrior'. The movie itself isn't anything too remarkable... I mean its not bad or anything. But the reason I want to watch it now is because I watched it on my previous HT and there was one scene where they were standing in the rain, and it sounded so incredibly real, like I was standing outside in the middle of a straight downpour!

I'm really happy with the way my Axioms sound in my square room. Still, I can only imagine how much better they could sound in the basement of my old house. The set-up down there was perfect for HT.

I guess you really can't have your cake and eat it too eh? I had a fantastic location with subpar speakers. Now I have fantastic speakers in a subpar location. \:\(

Interesting list of favorite sounds - given that you don't have and don't desire a sub?

Hi,

I don't remember the jeep being spit out of the hole. I have the DVD but I haven't watched it for a couple of years. Must check out the jeep scene. It's an excellent soundtrack.

Cheers,
Alan
