What The Projector People Are Watching

It’s probably no surprise that we at Projector People LOVE watching movies on the big screen. On most weekend nights you’ll usually find us in our living rooms, home theaters or backyards watching flicks with our friends and families. Projectors aren’t just our job; they’re our passion.

Read on to learn what we’re watching on our big screens right now.

I watched Derrick Brooks being entered into the NFL Hall of Fame. He played on our local team, the Buccaneers. Go Bucs! I’m also watching preseason football. It’s like light beer – not as good as the real thing, but it will do in a pinch.

I also saw a great movie called “Transcendence” With Johnny Depp. It’s a very creepy movie. We had the neighbors over. Seven of us watched it on an eight-foot wide screen with a Panasonic AE8000. NICE!

Recently we’ve been showing our 10-year-old son a lot of the classics.

We’ve watched Top Gun on the projector (it’s like you are the one landing on the carrier!), Terminator and Terminator Two (Arnold is huge!), and Rocky (you feel like you’re in the ring!)

Our son loves the films, and we love spending time with him.

I watched Frozen and the Little Mermaid II last weekend with my granddaughters on the Epson Presenter. I love that it’s an all-in-one projector and is so simple to use. Just plug it in, insert the DVD and press play!

The girls loved hanging out and watching movies with me. They say I have “the fun house!” It’s like being at the movies, but you can pause and get snacks and not miss anything.

I just got hooked on Game of Thrones. It’s a fantastic series to watch on a nine-foot wide screen. I really felt like I was thrown in that time period and that fantasy world. I zipped through all three seasons in less than two months!

Season four just wrapped on HBO so I will start that one soon. The series was so good, I just could not stop watching and was up to 1:00 a.m. on plenty of work nights!! I could have watched it on my 50” TV, but the much larger, crystal-clear image on my projector and the sounds of galloping horses and clanging swords on the surround sound just cannot be beat!

I’ve been playing a lot of video games on my projector lately.

When you’re playing Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 or Madden football on a nine-foot HD screen, it feels like you’re part of the action!

Your turn! What are you watching this week?
