Experiencing Heart-Racing Moments With Action Movies
Typical action movies get the heart racing, especially when you do not know what to expect. You may catch yourself grasping the sofa tightly or too immersed in the movie to remember to eat your popcorn. Most action movies have intense scenes of gunfights, dangerous car racing in the streets, or martial arts. Add a gargantuan screen to the mix, and you might find yourself never wanting to get up from the sofa.
Smart home theater projectors can deliver an immersive action movie experience, whether in the living room, the backyard, or when you are on a camping trip. With powerful features that deliver fast-paced motions with little image blurs, excellent built-in sound, imaging, and brightness, you can enjoy a cinematic feel when watching the John Wick series or Die Hard.
This article will explore recommended action movies to watch, the features of smart projectors that make watching action movies with them more enjoyable, and recommended home theater or ultra-short throw projectors that have these features.

Why You Should Watch Your Favorite Action Movies With Smart Projectors
Smart projectors have powerful features that can elevate the action movie experience in the home or outdoors, such as:
Action movies are generally fast-paced — involving a lot of quick movement like running, car racing, or combat. Producing crystal-clear displays with limited image blurs/trailing when streaming fast-moving videos is the advantage that MEMC (motion compensation technology) brings.
MEMC inserts additional frames between two frames of footage, increasing the number of frames per second in the same scene. With more frames, quick movements are displayed smoothly without image trailing.
Sound is a key factor in creating an engaging action movie experience. The car crashes, gunshots, the screech of swords as they clash, and background music are integral to the movie. Some smart projectors have professional built-in speakers that can deliver accurate, dynamic, and high-fidelity sound, fully immersing the audience and creating a true home theater feel.
With smart projectors, you can watch your favorite action movies on screens as large as 200". Large screens heighten the action movie experience and make for comfortable viewing, as you can be a good distance away and still be immersed in the movie.
Action movies are better appreciated when all details are displayed. Some smart projectors can deliver images in 1080p or 4K UHD resolution for a crystal-clear display.
Smart projectors can project with a brightness of 900 to 2400 ANSI lumens for beaming bright displays indoors or outdoors, making it easier to watch dark scenes.
Some smart projectors run on Android TV, which gives you access to thousands of apps and streaming services via Google Play. They also have multiple connectivity ports like USB, HDMI, LAN, and audio jack, for you to connect external devices like gaming consoles, laptops, flash drives, or TV sticks for added entertainment.
