Bring the Fight Home with Universal's '1917' on Blu-ray!

full?d=1583782711.png

(March 10, 2020) Happy Monday, AV NIRVANA! The good news is that old man winter is beginning to pack his bags (it's a blistering 72 degrees here in the Nation's Capital), but it's probably safe to say we all need a mind-escape from a certain virus that's made its way to our shores. And that's why we're here – to give all of our fantastic members an escape into the wicked world of home theater!

Our resident movie maven, Michael Scott, has been on a roll recently, tapping his vast network of contacts to whip-up some fun Flash Giveaway opportunities... and lucky for you, we have another one (with a fantastic double-barrel shotgun of fun poised to be announced NEXT)! This time we have one of last year's top flicks and winner of THREE Oscars: 1917. This movie has received an incredible amount of praise, all of which is more than deserved. To put it bluntly: this is one movie EVERY home theater fan should have in their collection... cocked, locked, and ready to rock!!

We're offering one of you – one of our beloved members – a chance to bring 1917 home on Blu-ray, shipped direct from our great friends at Universal! The film is set to be released on March 24th, so our official review will go live soon. In the meantime, you'll be happy to note this Universal Blu-ray release is endowed with a Dolby Atmos encode. And those of you rockin' a Cinemascope setup, you'll love the fact it carries a 2.39:1 image as well!

Most of you know the entry rules by heart, but here it goes for those you that are new: If you’re not a member, you’ll need to become one to enter the contest. Membership is 100% free… although you can certainly opt to support our site through various levels of Premium Memberships.

In order to enter the contest, just leave a comment below and you'll gain one entry into the contest. The official – random – drawing will be held on March 24, 2020.

As always, any member with 100 posts will have TWO automatic entries, while any member with 1,000 posts will receive THREE automatic entries! It’s our way of thanking those that have made AV NIRVANA their home! If you want better odds in this or future giveaway contests, get active on the forum!

Best of luck to everyone that enters. And of course, the entire staff at AV NIRVANA would like to thank those members that have made AV NIRVANA their home theater discussion destination!

If you would like to become a valued supporter of our community, click here for more information. It helps us to keep the lights on and contests like this happening!

Here’s the fine print:

  1. All entrants must be AV NIRVANA members (100% free and easy to join, including Facebook login) and live within the Continental United States (Lower 48).
  2. All previous Giveaway winners are free to enter.
  3. The contest runs from March 10, 2020 through March 24, 2020 (9:00AM EST).
  4. One winner will be selected at random and announced in this thread.
  5. The contest winner will receive a new Blu-ray copy of 1917, shipped direct by Universal.
  6. Any member with 100 posts will have TWO automatic entries, while any member with 1,000 posts will receive THREE automatic entries!

  8. Terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

1917.jpg


1917 (2019) arrived today.
Dolby AtmosPlusIIIx / 156 JBL speakers / Lucasfilm Ltd THX Sound System, 21kw

Overhead surround is used sparingly chapter 5, 20:12 I have the Dolby AtmosPlusIIIx tuned through rehearsal listening to other channels otherwise most Atmos home cinemas I would bet would have a some audio masking difficulties and certain sounds may go unheard/unnoticed.

Bass and LFE.1 is deep and reverberate to create a tense feeling of walking around the ruins of houses and muddy waters.
Cinematography looks good clear and nicely camera focused with some nice camera crane shots and steadicam.

Update on the Dolby Atmos. Don't expect a lot of usage on the Heights 1 2 and 3 the biplane scene at chapter 5, 20:12 is about as much as you would hear. A few little derbies on Height 1 during the last battle scene that only lasts for few seconds. How did this win best sound?? No use of serious 100% directional dialogue panning. I think academy ampas members must be all hard of hearing when it comes to nomination voting.

Thomas Newman score during end credits played it several times. The deepness of the bass thunders and roars overloaded the mic recording with 21kw JBL THX.
