8MM2 - Thriller

I watched on DVD in 4 x 3 - Full Screen.

A very good movie, a unique ending with a great suspense, the last one minute scene was out of the world. It reminded me of the great last one minute scene of this movie "The Taking Away of Pehlam One Two Three"

It will be nice that other members also post the movies which they have liked.

2 Fast 2 Furious - Action

A good movie, with nice surround effects. Super charged street racing action.

Not a bad idea.

But what are the criteria here?! Are you mentioning movies based on their sound and visual effects or on artistic/cinematic values?

Best Regards.

Thank you very much for the writing.

My criteria is that one should like story line of the movie backed by good picture quality, the sound effects from all speakers with special mention to surround and sub woofer.

Actually if any of the members like some movie for the above or some other reasons, if they put the writing briefly in this thread, it is likely to be a good idea.

Actually i got this new thread's idea from the thread which has been floated by kamal, "Right now I am listening to ... ".

Thank You.

If you like street racing action, I would recomened you to watch RONIN. Its not the "FAST AND FURIOUS" kind of movie, but I am sure you would like it or maybe you must have seen it
Released quiet a long back. Not sure about surround effects as i prefer to put on my Sennheiser headphones and watch the movie. Atleast till i have a good HT setup

I have seen 8MM-part 1. I have no idea when did the second part release. Is Nicolas Cage the main actor in 2nd part as well?

Some movies that are coming to my mind in this regard are?

Fight Club, U-571, Aliens, Apocalypse Now, Das Boot, Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Titan AE, Toystory2, Finding Nemo, Godzilla, Haunting, Gladiator, Blueman Group etc.

Other favorites are LOTR series, Matrix series, Star-war series etc. These moves will test the guts of any sub or surrounds out there!:cool:

I particularly like anything from Pixar. They are just a joy to watch and they excel in the video and audio as well!

Cannot forget that one, for sure! When it took to next level (high definition) there was no massive improvement, hence I ignored from my list.

Same here UNLEASH :)

I am myself a big fan of Pixar and definetly they get better and better.
But, for best visual effects and surrealistic racing check SpeedRacer which got released few months back. This is expected to kick off a new genre. Wachowski's have done it again after Matrix , but in a very different way. No, this is not a Matrix, but definetly this is a new genre

I missed that one, will try to watch. For this weekend I've got Golden compass / 3:10 yuma to watch

Another one to watch is I'm Legend, silent movie with lot of ambience.

Also one more good action movie from 2007, SHOOTER
I guess this has released on BLUE-RAY

Rikhav, with me it is the other way round, i never knew there was part one of 8mm.

In 8mm2 it is Johnathon Schaech & Lori Heuring.

There will be members who do not have a home theatre set up, so they will not be sure about the 5.1 effects, which is fine, they can always share with members about the movies they liked.

Vinay.

Hi,

Ya why not vinay that would be good too :) !!

Sunil I heard that golden compass is not all that great !! have the DVD haven't watched it yet ! so let me know how's it !

Anyone watched the movie "Finding Forrester" ? amazing movie (though conversational the ambient sound and background music will get you immersed into the movie completely).

Another very good one is "The Avengers" with soild acting by Uma Thurman and Sean Connery ! surround sound is also very impressive !

Also "The Perfect Storm" with the huge tidal waves and what not the sound is just too good to resist !!

Regards.

Indeed i will look for 8mm part 1, as part 2 has been very good, let's hope the part one does not let us down and by the way sarkar part 2 is much better than the part one.

I will also look for the perfect storm, it seems the movie is a good one, and than the sound effects of the huge tidal waves, a double reason to watch the movie on 5.1 set up.
