    Watched Kingsman #1 in 4K. Fun flick - looks amazing, good sound. Also watched Kick@@@ in 4K. Looked good, not amazing, and sounded good (not phenomenal)

    I loved the first Kingsman! Haven’t seen the second one yet.

    We went to the local theate yesterday and saw Ready Player One. While I am no fan of going to the movie theater (I always lose on that vote though), the movie was enjoyable.

    We watched "Wonder" last night and it was a very very good family movie. Highly recommended braised on true events of several children who battle a very rare birth defect. Wonderfully told and acted

    Well I’m sure we’ll end up watching it when we have all the kids at home sometime again soon. :T

    Alrighty... finally watched the new Star Wars (4K BD). Yeah. I'm that far behind.

    Hadn't read any reviews and somehow avoided spoilers ;-).

    Audio was fantastic. Video was very middling - the movie has an overall grey appearance to darks. And the black floor seemed to vary from scene to scene. I thought, visually, the movie was rather disappointing.

    The story, IMO, is a mixed bag. I know its a kids movie, so I try not to be overly critical, but the flick is filled with action sequences and situations we've seen before. Don't know - it just was kind of flat. I didn't fall asleep... but I liked Rogue 1 and The Force Awakens a lot more.

    The entire SAW collection was on sale at BB for $12.99! Had to pull the trigger on that deal.

    Watched A Quiet Place at the theater...

    Theater experience was an F for terrible video quality. The movie was very middling for me (not quite sure I agree with the positive reviews... was hoping for a lot more from the experience!).

    Yes sir! I won’t buy regular DVD anymore and honestly try and only purchase 4K now since those also include the Blu-ray.

    Better Watch Out. Very well acted by a pretty much unknown cast (other than Mom & Dad). A slightly different take on a horror film and honestly I did not see the main twist coming like I usually do.

    The Right Stuff - anniversary Blu-ray edition. Bass is a tad lean... but...

    *Simply Awesome* Probably the 150th time I've seen this movie?
