Installing a home theater system is one thing. Understanding which movies are best to test it out are another. Below are just a few of the films that will help you understand the full power and magnitude of what you’ve just put in.
Nobody (2021) / Universal Pictures: This action-crime thriller stars Bob Odenkirk, Christopher Lloyd, and Connie Nielsen. When two thieves break into Hutch Mansell’s home, he opts not to defend his family in hopes of preventing the incident from getting violent. This mild-mannered, docile “nobody,” however, decides to fight back as soon as he realizes one of the thieves has stolen his daughter’s kitty cat bracelet. Not only does he track down the offenders to retrieve it, the incident awakens a long-dormant fire from his past. The 92-minute action-packed film features action-packed scenes, explosive interactions, and highlights a man who is willing to go to war with a violent Russian crime lord to save his family. Nobody is an absolute treat for audiophiles interested in having a full at-home immersive sound experience.
