Dolby has long been synonymous with audio quality, particularly since consumers have been exposed to it for decades in technologies as varied as cassette tapes and movie theatres. Since it’s also entered the home in the form of Dolby Digital and Dolby Surround, the company has put out something called Dolby Atmos, and it’s one of the more intriguing audio technologies launched in recent times.

Great & Inexpensive Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Upcoming Christmas Season!

by Blogger ‎10-29-2013 02:10 AM - edited ‎11-09-2013 03:57 PM



With the gift giving season fast approaching, I've recently started to consider (and worry about) what gifts to include this year in my wife's Christmas stocking. One might think that stocking stuffers are the least of a gift giver's worries, but that’s not the case when it comes to my wife's stocking. Stockings in our family are a huge to do! There are plenty of gifts included, and even an "overflow bag" for all of those larger (yet stocking appropriate) items that won't quite fit into the stocking itself. Read on for a short list of useful stocking stuffer ideas...

I believe in Gotham City! But do I believe in Ben Affleck as Batman?

Warner Bros. just announced that Ben Affleck will star as the new Batman in the next superhero sequel to the latest version of Superman, “Man of Steel.”


The massive buzzing on the internet, filled with both pro and con comments following this announcement, is music to the studio’s many ears. So don’t be left in the dark: revisit the many batmans of the past so when this movie comes out you can make an informed decision about Ben’s worthiness to portray the caped crusader.

The Conjuring: one of the best new releases for fans of horror movies

by Blog Editor in Chief ‎08-02-2013 05:09 PM - edited ‎09-03-2013 02:06 PM



The Conjuring is an outstanding haunted house horror movie.


It’s based on the real lives of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, convincingly portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel, nominated for Academy Award for Up in the air).


I loved the pacing of the film which gradually raised the tension in the theatre over the first half hour, then routinely shocked and surprised the audience for the rest of the film.
