I'm not 100% decided yet, but I think I'm gonna be getting myself this for xmas: http://hometheaterreview.com/panason...80p-projector/
Haven't chosen a screen yet but it will likely be a Carada Criterion 2.35:1 fixed screen, >=80". I spent a good chunk of my day going through blu-ray.com and identifying movies i want and the vast majority are shown in 2.35 or 2.40:1 aspect ratios, and I hardly ever watch regular TV, so it's a no-brainer.

Fuck the device, I just want an internet connection that will allow me to download that many HD movies without huge surcharges and to be able to do so in in timely fashion. I was checking online and aside from leasing a fiber optic line, the best I can get is 25Mbps for 150GB/mo of transfer for $96/mo. That's less than 10 movies. Lame.
