Scott Wilkinson

Scott saw Independence Day Resurgence last night. It was a little disappointing and felt like there were too many writers in the room. It was fun to see the band back together 20 years later, though, and there was lots of nostalgia. The younger actors don't bring it as well, though. It did look fantastic in Dolby Cinema, at least. This gives you the movie in high dynamic range through Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It really is the way to see it. It'll cost more, but it's really worth it. Scott has a list here.

In other news, the annual Value Electronics shootout took place recently and the LG OLED G6 won for the third year in a row, which was no surprise. Sony, Samsung and Vizio performed well, but the Samsung had problems during the shootout.
