But do you REALLY need the theater experience for your film? I admit 'Star Wars' films (Of George Lucas) demand it but what about. . . ?
So we're about to taxi away from the terminal, the flight attendant is announcing we gotta put everything away, but the guy a few rows up and across keeps his laptop, DVD player, whatever out in front of him. He's just starting a Sylvester Stallone movie, look at who's in it with him. It's 'The Expendables.' Now, do you REALLY think I needed to hear all the bad jokes? (Though I admit it probably would have made it better.) That was such an in your face film they were up close on anything and anyone, I could see just fine on the postage stamp screen way over there. And I'm convinced I understood perfectly. In fact I feel I enjoyed that one better than the other two, seen on my 24" computer screen up close and in my face, as well as with sound.
But if you ever wondered about "THX sound" on a movie, this was invented by Lucas and his Industrial Light and Magic, named for his first feature 'THX 1138.' (When they take Chewbacca in to rescue the princess from her cell in the original 'Star Wars,' Luke says "Prisoner transfer from 1138.")
it was a memorizing experience. . . .
(Sorry, too good to pass up.)
So you memorized it? That's a long film. An hour and 17 minutes in, I couldn't understand. What were they saying. . . ? I'd be mesmerized by a chance to find out.
OK you got me, I guess I should now make a request to the forum admins to permanently ban me and have my IP firewalled from even reaching the es forums server...
I agree you don't need much for good movie experience at home but it still has to be done right... I don't see how sitting at a computer desk in front of a PC screen or Laptop screen and using laptop speakers can give a comparable movie experience but there are ways..
I got this Teclast X16 pro tablet for about $250 including delivery about 5 months ago from gearbest.com, has the latest Intel Cherry trail processor (same as whats in the MS Surface 3
) but of course these are lower power processes deliberately designed in response to slowing being crushed by ARM processors which no doubt will over time eat into the desktop PC market on a long enough time frame, but these processors still work great.
I been using it in Tablet mode watching Netflix etc in bed and the screen is fantastic, its proper 1080P resolution 11.6" sized screen, 4GB ram, 64GB solid state storage, windows 10. Using it with ear phones in bed and resting it on my chest it has just as good quality video as I would get in a $40 a movie Gold Class cinema theater seat.. Only difference I can't hit a button and have instant waiter service deliver me an alcoholic beverage while not taking my eyes off the screen..
Now if you claim that having a laptop sitting on your chest is comfortable then I will demanding you should be banned and firewalled from the ES forums.. Its just not the same as having a thin high resolution 11.6" tablet on my chest laying back in the dark, with this setup I can forget its a tablet and actually feel myself fooled into thinking I am sitting in a super premium cinema..
I been deliberately trying to compare both experiences for the last 6 months and a mere $250 Tablet is very much just as good.. I have had 3 Apple iPads now and while I grab the iPad for quick access internet radio/weather etc I always turn to my Teclast X16 for my in bed premium private cinema experience, and its delighting to know that these tablets are just getting cheaper and better by the month...
