The 10 best movies to show off your home theatre

These great movie scenes pinpoint exactly why your new HDTV, sound system, or Blu-ray player is worth the money.

Just on DVD — "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark"



(Sold separately and as part of the "Indiana Jones — The Adventure Collection.")

Let's clear up the title confusion first. This movie was originally called "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Subsequently, "Indiana Jones and the..." was added, but the title on the film itself was not changed.

Whatever it's called, this is one of the greatest of all escapist action movies ever made. But you probably already know that.

Recommended Scene

Chapter 23: Your friends have probably already seen this long, very entertaining car, truck, and horse chase through the desert (above). But if they've never seen it on a large, widescreen HDTV, they don't know how effective it can be in a home environment (of course it's even more effective in a real theater). From the two rows of soldiers sitting in the truck to the constant horizontal action, this scene was made for a wide screen.

Warning: Although "Raiders" has a PG rating, the violence would probably earn it a PG-13 today.

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you ought to publish more on this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don't talk about such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
