Not that I know of. I am curious to see both this and PE run through the paces at data-bass at some point hopefully. Neither are WotW or TIH level of course, but both bass tracks support the films VERY well and there is certainly nothing to complain about from an execution standpoint IMO.

Interestingly I noticed a brief moment of ultra low bass at the snow field hovering scene (00:32:38 ):

I have both on BD and imo the 1st PJ blows the 2nd away!!

I couldn't agree more! We watched it as well Christmas nite. Awesome ride it was! Audio and video. 3D is fantastic.

Wow. Sooo yeah, I've got twelve 18's running now. Watched some clips from Transformers 1. Wow! So awesome sounding.

Caught quite a transient during the end that I don't remember with my LLT's. It's after Megatron arrives in the city. He was coming out of an alleyway of sorts and blows away who I think was Jazz. I haven't watched the movie in a couple years, I forget. But anyway. Sure caught my attention!

I watched Elysium last night. The soundtrack been put together very well and although besides being on the low side i couldn't help but feel that i was listening to a well recorded music CD with 8 channels. This is something i've also found to the case with other Sony Blu Ray releases too. Ultimately pleasant and nice. Come on Sony with Elysium and some of your other releases you've gone some way to offer Super Bit Mapping V which i appreciate. However Elysium is an action movie so please go the extra mile and also add some power and punch to liven up the soundtrack so as to give a cinematic feel of an action movie.

 

Thanks

 

Rick.

Interesting review. As you point out, the bass track draws the viewer, deep into the action of the movie.
dominguez1's Avatar dominguez1 08:18 AM 12-28-2013

I watched Elysium a couple of days ago...

 

Now that is how ULF is done! :cool: I'd have to say that subjectively has to be one of the top ULF movies in regards to sheer quantity. Every scene where you'd expect to experience ULF was there in spades! This adds a certain realism to the movie that just doesn't exist with filtered movies. Period. This movie is a great example of that. I had a huge smile on my face every time it happened.

 

After watching, I went upstairs and bought it. Great addition to the ULF library.

You make an interesting point dominguez1. Allow me to ask, Rick27, what subwoofers are you using? The reason I ask, if they're not capable subwoofers, much of what's tracked, won't be reproduced and will give a skewed opinion, accordingly. Our system is good to 10/12Hz. Others here are good to <4Hz. And if you can't play the infrasonic, much of what is tracked is going be missed out on in the form of room rumble or tactile sensation, chair/floor vibration.

Just saying, as robust as our system is, the subwoofer system, in my opinion, barely qualifies as adequate.

I really liked the way the bass was used here. That being said, I do wish they had added a couple of extra DB's on a few of those scenes.

I had to ad +3db to the sub trim to get the tactile feel. Over all the soundtrack was good. I watched at -15db. With my Klipsch speakers (I haven't rerun the EzSetEq from when I had my little SuperZeros) so -15db is like -5db with the SZs.

Anyway, the sound and picture were very good. Bass was there in spades and well done. Kind of like Oblivion.

As far a soundtracks go, we watched the two insidious movies on Thursday. I much preferred the overall soundtracks of these two movies even though they aren't "bass" movies. The sound was used very effectively.

This is decent action flick - really gritty and brutal -
watched this today
Have a few pints and enjoy it for what it is
Sound/video is excellent - nice punchy / dynamic track
with big soundstage

Sean Spamilton's Avatar Sean Spamilton 10:04 PM 12-28-2013
I watched Elysium last night and was actually kind of disappointed in the bass department. Maybe my subs don't go low enough to really enjoy ulf (although they hit 19hz with aplomb) - but I enjoyed Oblivion WAY more then Elysium in the sound department; as a matter of fact, I re-watched Star Trek into Darkness tonight and found the bass destroyed the bass on Elysium. I'm running dual PC12's with the bass about 2db hot. Funny that.
Torqdog's Avatar Torqdog 10:35 PM 12-28-2013
Just finished watching Man of Steel............what a fricken bass dud! AND, what a missed opportunity for a stellar soundtrack to accompany all that building smashing in the end. This could have been right up there with TIH if someone capable was at the helm.

VERY disappointed! mad.gif

AJ72's Avatar AJ72 01:17 AM 12-29-2013
I will be interested to see if Elysium is a dud for me with my dual Caps which roll off sharply about 17Hz. That said my favourite scenes would be, Percy Jackson LT: Fire Breathing Hydra's, Tron Legacy: Flying ship landing just after Sam Lasered, FOTP Plane scene too name a few. I suspect all these scenes above 20HZ but I also get a lot of enjoyment with most of the OHF content, TIH content, WOTW although the first alien foot stomp in this movie rates better for me than pod emergence just before it. Enjoying a beautiful glass of Provence Rose (French) whilst writing this hoping everybody having a holiday too!

Just picked up Elysium and The Pacific today both in BD. I'm gonna watch Elysium tomorrow. And just run the subs hot at 4 with a small house curve. Wanna see what the quad S2's can do with this flick. The Pacific? Looks like this will be the New Year's Day flick. All day since it's over 8 hrs long. I was told in this thread that the bass in this movie is insane..

I think you mean the sound designer? not the rerecording mixer?
BeeMan458's Avatar BeeMan458 03:42 AM 12-29-2013
Just saying, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" had decent bass but it was the absolute worst movie in recent cinematic history. If you don't want your mind haunted by bad action and a terrible acting, plot and premise, do yourself a favor and avoid this mind pollution.

(after the movie I wanted to stab my brain with forks to put me out of my pain)

The only ones who are safe to watch this movies will be anybody under the age of eight as they won't know any better.

I realize this thread is a thread about good bass but movies like "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" should come with warnings:

"Good bass, absolutely terrible movie premise"

I thought The Lone Ranger was horrible.

Thanks. I purchased "Sky Captain" off the bass list and had no idea. My wife and I did have something to talk about after the movie. Is the "Lone Ranger" the same type of movie? Good bass, terrible movie?

UPS should deliver "Hurt Locker" today. "Act of Valor" and "Black Hawk Down" are in the hands of the USPS and be here sometime in a week or so.

Spun Dead in Tombstone last night..............great picture and a ton of great bass. Also watched Hotel Transylvania in 3D.......3D was so-so but the soundtrack didn't match the visuals.....good opportunity missed imho.....not just for bass but the entire sound design could have been great.
BeeMan458's Avatar BeeMan458 08:12 AM 12-29-2013
"Dead in Tombstone" At the right used price on Amazon, I may add this one to the cart.

I watched Dark City on blu ray last night ( I think I remember reading they amped up the bass/surrounds for the blu mix compared to the dvd mix when they released this?) and I had forgot how insane the bass was in that ~10 minutes of the big final battle toward the end! eek.gif Not the deepest or most artistic use of bass (but very effective in light of the scene), but the pure power and duration shocked me! I would be curious to see this track graphed at db or at least this ~10 minutes toward the end. I quite literally felt blown away! tongue.gif
