I'm standing in the rain watching a large group of soldiers in medieval armor poke at dead horses and slain warriors lying in the mud of a riverbank. There are bright lights, smoke, and machines spraying everything with water despite the steady downpour nature is providing.

Aside from a huge, costly flat-panel TV, the easiest way to put a big video image up on your wall is to buy a front-projector/projection screen combo. And with good high-rez front projectors now selling for as little as $2,000, that option can be particularly budget-friendly.

Hi Theo, There are things I wished I hadn't done with my home theater. For example, I shouldn't have spent so much on my receiver and should have waited for one with HDMI inputs and the new Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio formats.
