Starting this week I will be writing some of my reviews again in English for a broader audience. I will also be writing more of them and hopefully find the joy again not just in writing them but also in watching the movies again, playing the games and listening to music.
Movie reviews – Cinema
My movie reviews will be based on the showings in Kinepolis Almere. For the IMAX experience I will use Pathe Arena and Pathe Arnhem. If a movie is really spectacular I will try to also visit Kinepolis Jaarbeurs for Laser Ultra or Vue Hilversum for Dolby Vision (could be switched for Pathe Muntplein once they made a Dolby Vision theater there). 70mm showings will be done in Eye.
Movie/Series/Games reviews – Home Entertainment
Reviews will be made at home using the following equipment:
Onkyo HTS 5805, Onkyo does not list HDR passthrough however it does work, the receiver has HDCP 2.2 and 60hz 4K support. It also supports Dolby Atmos and has two speakers installed on the ceiling for audio from above.
Xbox One S besides being used as the main Xbox One console at the moment it is also used as the Ultra HD Blu-Ray player.
For comparison there is also a review setup with a base PS4 using the following equipment:
Xbox One Base
The Xbox One S will soon be moved to the Sony 43XD8077 review corner once the Xbox One X arrives.
