    Blue Velvet... :D ...filmed right here in ol' Wilmington NC. B)

    Pretty low key high tension movie. ;)

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    This is definitely not the best, but still one of my favorites. (Incredibles 2)

    I couldn't find one that didn't have a bunch of watermarks.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    One of the funniest scenes in all of cinema. How Spade got through this straight faced is beyond me

    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
  • +1 for the Robert Shaw scene from Jaws and John Adams scene. John Adams is a great mini-series and highly recommended.

    One of my favorites.....

    It was kinda weird because the title made it sound like it was a chick flick but it was the furthest thing from a chick flick with an all star cast.

    A few of my favorites:

    The Watch scene from PF:


    Caddy shack - the only time Bill Murray and Chevy Chase were in the same scene...:


    The dinner scene from Goodfellas:

    Too much stuff to keep track of.

    Currently enjoying: Legacy Focus 20/20, McCormack DNA 225, Bill D C1, Oppo 105
  • nooshinjohnnooshinjohn Posts: 21,158
    What's even more cool is that scene from Goodfellas was largely unscripted. When Joe Pesci goes on his rant, none of it was scripted, catching Ray Liotta flat-footed for his own dialog. The look of confusion and shock on his face was both genuine and perfect for the scene.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Yes, I was aware the moonwalk is a video and not a Hollywood movie.

    Just thought it was significant, (a slight derail).

    The Abraham Zapruder film is another example of filmed history. What was hidden behind that road sign? We'll probably never know.

    Because its judgement that defeats us.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.
