Big Picture Big Sound

Dennis Burger, Wookiee for Hire

You know the guy who turns around and tells you to hush at the movie theater when you're yapping? The one that theater employees hate to see coming? The one who complains to the manager if the sound is too low or a speaker is blown? The one who wants the Exit light turned off, safety be damned, because it's casting a green glow across the screen?

Yeah, that's Dennis. He started working on his own home theater system at the end of the LaserDisc era, mostly because he was tired of other people ruining his movie-watching experience. He ended up doing such a good job that people began coming over and ruining his movie-watching experience at home.

He figured out that the only way he was going to be able to enjoy his movies in peace was to find some way to watch them at home during the day, while everyone else was at work. So he made a career out of it, getting his start at the now-defunct, and parlaying that into a position at Robb Report Home Entertainment & Design (now simply Home Entertainment), where he continues to write his regular movies/music/gaming column, "Show-Offs."

Dennis lives in Montgomery, AL, with his beautiful wife and their four-legged son Max, a rescued Chow/Pit/Lab mix who looks like a black bear but has a tendency to moo.
