    What are the best movies that came out this last year? I just put together a hi def home theater with 7.1 surround sound and large flat panel TV. I don't watch many movies and would like to get input from everyone. Thanks

    I don't know about the best movies from this year, but I think the best scene/movie to show off your new surround sound system and tv would be the opening scene from Saving Private Ryan. The lobby gun fight from The Matrix and the launch scene from Apollo 13 are also very nice :) Enjoy your new system!

    I didn't see much in 2007, but "Live Free, Die Hard" was pretty good.

    Now that you have made the investment in a home theater, spend the extra $$ and get a high-def DVD player. I have a Blu-Ray but either version would be fine--they do sell players that play both but they are near $1,000. has a Panasonic Blu-Ray for $436, which is $163 plus tax less than Best Buy, and you get 5 free DVD's w/purchase.

    You should be careful when playing games on a flat screen as the images can be burned in to the screen if they are allowed to stay on the screen for a long time.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Only on a plasma and even then, with the improvements of technology, it's rare. An LCD will not have burn-in. They have a different phenomenon known as image retention but it is reversible.

    The 2 that I liked this year were babel and the Simpson's movie. I thought that Casino Royale was good too, but I think that was from 2006.
