Scott saw Avengers: Infinity War this week. Scott says it's long at 2 1/2 hours, but it's a great popcorn movie. Marvel brought together over 78 characters from across the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Scott thought it was fairly "one note," emotionally, but that seeing it in Dolby Cinema really made the image "pop." The sound was great. He saw it in 2.35:1 aspect ratio, while IMAX is taller at 1.9:1. So Scott says that if you see it in IMAX, you'll see more of the image information.
Scott wanted to mention a series of articles on AVS Forum: "Things to Consider" when shopping for home theater this holiday season. The first article is 12 Things to Consider when Shopping for Speakers.
