Boyhood - ??/10...hmm maybe a 6.5   Entertainment value: 4/10   MINOR SPOILERS and this "review" is all over the place. I'm tired.   It's hard to put into a score my opinion of this movie. I really didn't love it at all and don't know if I want to endure it again. For me some scenes are just barely interesting enough to hold my attention. Why? Not sure since I have a super huge attention span. I think I could relate to a ton of things in here, but it just wasn't...
Hundred Foot Journey - 9/10   Not very original at all, but I enjoyed every single minute of this movie. It's the kind of movie I like. Many would want to judge this movie before even seeing it. Let's see...it's produced by Oprah and Spielberg and released by Disney...   I bought my mom a ticket to this and she likes it too.       Life Itself - 5.5/10   I always read Ebert's reviews and would check his website every Friday for new ones. I should have just read...
Another Dawn of the Planet of the Apes They Return Again - 9/10   I was a little late seeing this in the theater but i'm glad I did see it. Perfect movie to see after a looooong day at work. Took awhile to get going and I didn't like the first 15-20 minutes much. It doesn't help that I'm not a fan of the main actor in the movie, but he did OK here. It kept getting better and better the more I watched it (same as with Snowpiercer).   Surprised this doesn't have tons...
Snowpiercer - 10/10 ??   The latest movie from the the director of "Host", "Mother" and "Memories of Murder". It's a south korean film as far as I know, but has an international cast. You don't see this a whole lot. Last one that comes to mind is the amazing Shuni Iwaii film "Swallowtail Butterfly" which has probably 4 different languages spoken in it.   Anyway, first 5 minute impression was that it had bad acting from some of the smaller roles and some of the...
 I read that book and stopped after maybe 50 pages. Glad I eventually finished it and really liked it. If you loved the book don't have the experience ruined by watching the movie!The movie really sucked the life out of the book and some of my favorite parts of the book were totally left out. The movie is way too dreary and kind of depressing. It's like a summary of the book and I wonder if the director read it. He should have focused less on the look of the film and more...
Since i'm bored i'll rank all the AKG's i've heard.   1. Modded Q701 (this and my DJ100+HD-650 are my favorites) 2. Stock Q701 / K712 3. K601 - one of my favorites, but Q701 got more use when it came out. I did keep this for a few years though. 4. K400 EP (this one has a driver that looks identical to a K500! Came with deeper pads than LP) 5. K400 LP (came with brown ringed pads, less deep than others. Recabled with some european wire called "Cordial"(?). I bet 10...
I seriously don't understand why there is not more love for the O2 + HD-650/600. Makes no sense. To me it's a perfect match. I guess it doesn't add anything to how it's normally going to sound. My HD-650 manages to sound great with most neutral amps. The HD-650 actually sounds much better with the O2 than my Q701. I'll someday figure out why the Q701 is only so-so with the O2. Wouldn't imagine it's a lack of power and it's not because I prefer more coloration.   I...
I've had my Headroom Micro Amp for 60 years. It's a little rusty and i've changed some parts on it several times. Mine was hand signed by Tyll himself back in 1967.   BTW it's too bad that Headroom stopped making amps. If mine dies i'll probably never be able to re-create it's exact sound. I guess there's always Ebay. Is there a clone of it's sound? I haven't heard it yet.   I paid $330 for mine and feel it's worth $500.   Seriously though this amp is never going...
 It's quite possible I guess. Not saying you're wrong. Is yours a very early Magni? Mine was.I think I got it on day 1 of it's release. I kept it for maybe a year and ended up swapping it for an O2.Maybe there was slight tweaks to it's sound. Prefer the O2 overall, but think the Modi is better than the ODAC (nearly identical there IMO). I'm quite fond of the Modi+O2 combo  I just need to find the perfect Schiit amp for both my DJ100, HD-650 and Q701. This has been a real...
 I tried that too with the Q701 and it's a perfect match. It's a little pricey at full retail , but around $200 is a good deal. If I wasn't using my Micro Amp (which is also amazing with the Q701) i'd probably buy the ican or try a Matrix M-Stage. I think the top 3 amps i've heard for the Q701 are the Vali, Micro and ican. It's really too bad Headroom no longer makes amps. I've been loving my Micro ever since getting it back in 2011 or so. I really need to try the M-Stage!...
