Sorry Brian, but as mentioned above, it is the new Metallica concert/movie that hits blu today (Metallica: Through the Never). 2.35, 3d......can't wait to check it out on my scope screen as it is extremely rare we get a concert in 2.35. cool.gif I was surprised to see it even mentioned in this thread as I am not expecting anything in the way of bass, so whatever is there will be a bonus.

It all depends on what you mean by bad movie though as to me, a movie can be good from many angles and for different reasons. If talking plot, story and acting, then I would agree with you. Something like Transformers though for example I would consider a good movie IF watched in a nice theater since a big part of that type of movie experience relies on the technical side itself and from that perspective, it is a good movie even though the plot, acting and story are weak. Not to mention what makes a "bad" movie is VERY subjective which is always why I have to watch and decide for myself. When somebody says "This movie is bad" all they are telling me is it was bad in their opinion which might not line up with my own once I see it, especially in my HT.

A good example of this is the recent Ninja films talked about here. These films to me are pretty awful if I was just watching on my flat panel tv upstairs with my tv speakers, but watching downstairs in the HT turns these films into very fun escapism entertainment that I will certainly revisit at times. So is it a bad movie overall? Not in my opinion as it is highly entertaining from a technical perspective and a great escape for a few hours if the mood strikes for that kind of thing.

Sorry to rant here a bit, but I always find it funny when someone says "movie X is bad" like people will just find it universally bad. tongue.gif All that person is telling me is their opinion which I may or may not agree with after watching myself. Different movies can be "good" for many different reasons depending on the person, how they watched it, etc........you just never know until you watch yourself, but it is fun to read what other people think.

Agree. I thought it was a very good film. I was at a friends house and he had a ripped a copy and asked if I wanted to watch it. I was't overly excited about watching a film with picture on the television but sound coming through his apple laptop at all. "Wow" I thought "I'd rather go home than watch a movie through this kind of rig" but then I checked myself. "You snobby prick" I thought "just watch the goddamn movie". Kind of like refusing to drink inexpensive wine because first growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundy is all you'll stomach nowadays and only in a Riedel Sommelier glass. Anyway I was pleasantly surprised and glad I did watch it through the apple laptop as it proved that a good movie is still just that no matter what you watch or listen to it on. Of course its going to be a much different experience in my own living room as I couldn't tell you whether the movie had bass or not and yes I would MUCH prefer to watch at home but not restricted to it. Looking forward to revisiting this one again and will think twice next time before dismissing the alternative.
Odd that they couldn't send both video AND audio to the TV. I've brought movies to my friends' places before, ripped from my BD to a laptop (they had an HDTV, but they didn't have a BDP). I just sent audio and video to the TV.

LOL, like Frankenstein's Army? I watched that one due to this thread and personally thought that not only was the movie pretty bad, but the bass wasn't very good either. Sure there was lots of it, but therein lay the issue for me. There was bass practically all the time. Just way overblown IMO. Watching it on tiny speakers, it would have been a bad movie. Watching it on a single digit Hz capable setup, it was still a bad movie.

FA would not qualify for you in reference to the post you were responding to as that post assumed you thought the audio was good in whatever otherwise bad movie you were watching. You took a bad movie (in your opinion) and it also had a bad audio track (in your opinion), so of course it will still be a bad movie in the HT. tongue.gif Me for example using FA, I don't know if I would have even made it through that WAY out there film once if watching on just my flat panel, but I personally loved the audio and bass track in my HT and thought it suited the film perfectly overblown LFE and all, so it became a good movie for me in the HT, and was good enough in fact that I bought a copy and have watched it 3 times already. biggrin.gif


The point though is you have to take an otherwise bad movie (in your opinion) with a great technical presentation and then the question becomes, is it still a bad movie if it is highly enjoyable in one way or another (from a technical angle in this example)? IMO, it is not a bad movie at that point since it was a fun and entertaining experience. To turn this around, there are tons of great films from an acting/story perspective that have very little to offer on the technical side, so does that make those films bad? Of course not, they just need to be appreciated from the appropriate angle.

Just my take and some wont agree which is cool obviously.

I've been thinking of starting a thread called, "What's the worst movie you've ever watched, for the sake of bass?"

For me, that title is, The Man With The Iron Fists. Ugh!

Battle LA is one of the first that comes to mind. That movie IMO is corny as all hell, but becomes a flat out fun experience in the HT when you factor in A/V.

Machete, hands down.

2nd would be The Expendables.

3rd Sharknado.

To call these B-movies would be an insult to all B-movies smile.gif

Still trying to recover from those three... smile.gif

EDIT: sorry, didn't see the 'sake of bass part...' lol

My worst was The Last Airbender. The Man with the Iron Fists is a very, very close second. Getaway is a close third, maybe tied with Dead in Tombstone. Pulse is up there, too. All are absolutely terrible movies from the perspective of formal film criticism, but all have lots of bass content. Ugh. Double ugh! The things we do for love (of bass)! tongue.gif

A couple of questions I ask myself are whether or not the bass content is complex and additive to the movie, and whether or not the sound effects are reused too frequently throughout. I think we're all too nice when critiquing movies with bass, and I actually hope people will start expressing their criticism more in their execution votes on the polls over at data-bass.com. wink.gif

For me, Frankenstein's Army definitely takes it. I'd have to think back to all the Movies With Bass to determine if it's the worst one of those I've ever watched (it's undoubtedly one of the top contenders), but it's unquestionably the "Worst movie I've ever watched for the sake of bass", as I never considered watching/renting it till I heard about it here.

I've watched Pulse. Didn't think it was great, but for me, it was certainly better than FA, AND importantly, I DIDN'T watch it specifically for the bass. I watched it out of curiosity because I like horror movies, and THEN heard the server room scene.

Although B:LA wasn't a great movie, I still found it way better than FA, but once again, I didn't watch it for the bass. I'm also a sci fi fan and like the 'battling aliens' genre. I liked the bass enough to watch it more than once though.

I watched MWTIF because I'm a HUGE MA/Wuxia fan (the trailers got me all excited). Blind bought the BD before knowing what the bass would be like. Watched it once and haven't watched it since. I guess after seeing him in this and GI Joe, I just can't stand RZA.

For that matter, while I really enjoy Tron:Legacy for the audio and eye candy (and have watched it many times), the first time watching it, 2 things came to mind: 1) the story is only OK, but mostly 2) who is this lead actor and WHY did he get the part? Because he's pretty darn wooden as actors go

***side note
I've noticed this Hollywood trend recently, and you guys are free to mention it any time your SO brings up some bimbo with little talent being cast simply because she has a pretty face/big jugs/whatever:

There have been a fair number of recent Hollywood action blockbuster attempts, casting what I would call mimbos (male bimbos, cast predominantly for their looks, but with far less talent than many other options).

A brief sample list of movies cast with leading mimbo roles:
Tron:Legacy
John Carter
Conan The Barbarian - (Jason Momoa)
Pacific Rim

If anyone here who blind bought MWTIF ended up not liking it and wants to get rid of it for a fair used price, shoot me a PM and I will probably take it off your hands.

Thanks!

Watched Riddick today and thought the pq and sound design was great. Running +6db on the sub helped but the bass was present a good when it was needed on screen. Doubt I'll buy it, but enjoyed it none the less.👍

I love how campy Man With The Iron Fist is. I've seen it 20 times and laugh hard every time. It's not meant to be Citizen Kane.

Fortunately, I was able to catch a few minutes of "Cloverfield" on cable and after watching this group run around like chickens with their head cutoff, decided to move on to something else.

I would have loved to have listened for the bass but it was a bit too campy for me to purchase a used blu-ray from Amazon.

Ordered up "Unstoppable" in blu-ray today from Amazon; <$6, delivered. biggrin.gif

For those interested in a decent 4 star bass move, Best Buy has Looper on Blu-Ray for 4.99.
