Which War of the Worlds is the best to get???

I see the regular DVD has DTS 5.1 and the blu ray only has Dolby Digital 5.1. Which one is the better of the two????

There is also a limited edition which has DTS HD master audio??

Here's the listing, clearly stating that it has "DTS Surround Sound", which is DTS Master Audio on my copy:

Thanks for the heads up! I was looking at the Walmart description for the blu ray version, it only says it is in Dolby Digital for some reason. Everywhere else now that I have investigated more shows it being DTS.

Can't wait to watch it, just got my VTF 15H in, first subwoofer I have owned so am really looking forward to it!

Don't buy Chronicle, its a ridiculous movie. No about amount of LFE can make that movie worth buying.

In the 5 star category, are they talking about "9" the post apocalyptic animated one, or the musical?

Tried searching but came up empty...

Exactly...the dynamics, LFE, everything was so pure and clean sounding. I have said it before, it was the best audio experience I have ever had in my theater. ( and I'm not a fan of the movies )

I'm coming late to the Underworld Awakening party... but I wanted to add my two cents:

Several comments made me think there was going to be too much bass in this movie, and I would end up with a headache before it was over. I have experienced that before... especially since I run my bass a little hot (so mostly my own fault... hehe).

Anyway, I was very pleasantly surprised. Even though there is lots of bass thorough the movie, my ears never got worn out or tired of hearing it. So much of it is in the near-ULF range it doesn't really wear you out or give you a headache... it just MOVES you. So it really is the BEST kind of bass movie. My wife also commented to me about how awesome the sound is. The best word I can think of is: powerful. It just has that "there is no bottom" feeling without being too "in your face" with it. I'd watch it again JUST for the bass. So glad I bought it.

Tonight it was the blu version of LOTR:FOTR. While the DVD soundtrack was the great, the DTS-HD MA track is that much better and def 5* Two Towers blu coming up!

I have not seen Avatar with my sub hooked up yet, is this a movie worth putting 3 hours into??

It seems it would have a great audio track to it, but maybe I am wrong.

I personally think the movie it's self is worth the 3 hours. The bass on the other hand, well it is nothing impressive. It is average, i'd say 2.5 or 3 stars at most.

Although it lacks world class LFE, from an overall perspective I thought the audiotrack on the Avatar BD was demonstration quality. Better yet the PQ of the BD is as wonderful as anything I have seen on my HT setup. Can't comment on the 3D BD as I haven't seen it but I own and love the 2D version of the Avatar BD. To say the least, Cameron doesn't put much intellectual demand on his viewers but I loved the film anyway.

Agreed. Both the 2d and 3d versions are great overall from a tech perspective. Reference audio IMO even if the LFE is not quite 5 star material. I would rate the LFE a solid 4.

Just watched Hanna again since it was first released. Such a good flick and one of the best mixes out there.

Forgot to post about Avengers. Saw it 2nd weekend it came out. With regards to LFE, not much that made my chest pound. Saw it at an IMAX 3D in Glendale, AZ. Was expecting some bass but perhaps it was the theater. As for the movie....meh. Was ok. Now Prometheus and The Dark Knight Rising are ones I'm REALLY looking forward to in the theater and eventually on blu-ray disc.

I almost bought it last night. I am not fimilar with it, but it had that look like it might have some LFE, thanks for the heads up. I picked up Transformers DOTM 3D and Iron Man 2. I also picked up Black Hawk Down and was pretty disappointed. The copy I got is Dolby Digital, but really did not come close to a 4.5 star rating IMO. Is there a DTS version?

Remember everybody has different likes and preferences when it comes to movies! Transformers and Iron Man both have good audio. I suggest giving Chronicle a rental to see if you like it, the soundtrack is very good as several reviews have noted. This is the bass thread after all.

The movie was OK and the sound was a little better. The picture quality on the other hand I thought was fantastic. I thought the dynamics were really good but there was not enough really deep bass. Some scenes had good rumble and had things shaking in my theater but it was not over powering. I thought the animated movie Battle for Terra was a better movie. I compare the two because the story was basically the same.

Again just my opinion, but to start, I was never a fan of the Avengers in the comic book so it would take a lot for me to like it. Second, it was 45mins too long, the story with that alien was not interesting. But it WAS funny...favorite was the Hulk and I think Ruffalo is the best of the Dr. Banner's compared to the newer actors (Ed Norton, Eric Bana). Though no one can touch Bill Bixby.

Also not really worth it in 3D (but worth it in IMAX). Again just my opinion. Now Batman and Spiderman I'm jacked up about.
