saw a really good movie, even though it was fully hollywood-genre:

"inside man" - by spike lee

spike lee and Q tarrantino are similar in that they both can do downright over all good movies (tarrntino's "jackie brown"), regardless of their "concepts".

Is that the movie starring Clive Owens and Denzel Washington?

It was a nice movie, not much more than that, but nice :D

yea, that one :D .

hey, is there a function to lower just the soundtrack when seeing dvd's?
I'm really getting pisssed off with some of these soundtracks.
even if they are OK, many are just too LOUD. over dominating-manipulative.
if there isn't such a function, someone please make one. seems logical, no?
in this exact movie mentioned above (which I thought was good :D ), the soundtrack is ok, but way too loud-overbearing.

I love the yellow ones too!
Not so easy to find good ones, though :bang

Regarding DVDs they are often very dynamic recordings (that's the term,
right?), i actually like that (what do you intend with manipulative??)

You could try a coupe of things.

If you have a discrete center channel increase its volume of a few dBs.
Most of players/receivers/amplifiers have dynamic controls, often
disguised as "night mode" or similar, try that.
Also some virtualizations allow you to set a different volume for the
(virtual) center channel.

cool Z, thanks.

(what do you intend with manipulative??)

they force a mood or intention beyond the basic acting and beyond the basic setting, so that it "will work", have an effect. capiche what I mean?
I like silence and "air" between works-segments of art, be it a painting or a godamn movie, places where I can have my own space inside the work. jeez, look what you bring out of me :D .

That's them.

Soft velvety skin, yellow interiors... :D

Ido, let me know if that works for you.
(now, it just came to my mind that when i watched movies just with the TV i
had a hard time getting the dialogue right... did i make it? Who knows... i've
forgotten :mrgreen:)
I also would put voice, music and noises on three separate streams so that you
can choose different volumes for each.

Does anyone remember a 1980's television series called "Georgia Peaches"?

It's about two sisters in the USA state of Georgia named Lorette Peach and Sue Lynn Peach running an auto repair shop who are extorted into becoming undercover FBI agents. Tanya Tucker the country singer is Lorette Peach, and Dirk Benedict between The A-Team and Battlestar Galactica, plays Dusty Tyree, a moonshine running fool if there ever was one. He has a '79-'81 Firebird set up to haul moonshine in a tank. He runs stop signs and does 180s and drives fast backwards and when he's about to get caught, he dumps the moonshine out and ignites it, and 200 feet of napalm like country road is enough to stop most police cars. But he gets caught somehow in the pilot, and the Feds have him and the two young women in this story at their mercy. The three have to go undercover for the ATF to break up illegal cigarette smuggling.

thanks Zaf , I didn't try yet, but besides, sit down a second while I give you some shocking news:
I don't have a surround system :D :D .
but I heard you well on the night mode etc and will try those.
I just saw a ridly scott movie with denzel W, american gangster. finally, a good soundtrack that is not full of itself and not over-volumed.
