What movie would you watch first on your HT, if you were going back to that time again and why?


Just wondering, as there some who watch a lot more movies than myself.

Why do we have to go back in time? Most movies are available on dvd or blu-ray. I guess you mean to see them in a theater at a first time viewing. I'd like to see The Wizard of OZ in a theater for the first time, although, I'd probably be disappointed that it wasn't up to par with the system I have at home. So I'm back to preferring watching it on blu-ray anyway.

I mean, after experiencing your system and knowing what it is capable of, what would be the most enjoyable movie to watch on your HT...

Bad phrasing of the orignal question...

Tough call.

With guests, "Fellowhip of the Ring". There is just so much beautiful scenery for enjoying HD video combined with outstanding audio. I never tire of any in that series.

If I'm feeling purely nostalgic, the 'original' Star Wars, Episode IV. I still feel like a giddy little kid every time that first Star Destroyer flies by.

Raiders of the Lost Ark. The best John William's score, the best action Spielberg ever shot, and the best sound effects Ben Burtt ever recorded. Indy's pistol--a Winchester rifle. Those punches--wet leather jackets struck with a bat. Can't wait for the Blu-ray release this fall.

I have a whole slew of movies that I've been "saving up" since I started finishing my basement 9 months ago. I picked some that were supposed to be good, and others that were questionable, but I wanted to see with a new projector and hear with the upgraded speakers.

My daughter (who tunes 18 today) says that Super 8 should be our first movie in the new theater. Her boyfriend says that we should watch the latest Fast and Furious movie. My wife chimed in with a (don't pick on me) favorite of mine, Gone in 60 Seconds (love the cars). I think that the first thing in will actually be a demo disc that I've been a (very) minor player in its development over at AVS.

Avatar would be good, although I still find it a bit too cartoonish still. LOTR will be viewed in blu-ray glory, but none of my family are interested in it. Same with Star Wars. Raiders would be good also. But Love, Actually? Um, no...

When the VP160 arrives, I'm going to be "all about dialog" for a week I'm sure! Well, I was joking....

Though I really WILL be looking forward to concert Discs!
