Yea, I think we got that one the same week. I like it but you have to watch and not critique it or be critical. Allow it to be what it is. Really you should watch all movies that way and you will enjoy them more. Except Getaway, that script was sooooooo terrible...

I agree on Frankenstein's army. I couldn't help but laugh and think how the next personsoldierinvention thing was going to look like. But Getaway all I could think of was "Alvin" from the chipmunks. tongue.gif

To add some optimism to the thread, I saw that the Godzilla has the sound designer from World War Z. I hope we can expect some more grenade style bass scenes.

Oh, and any info on the Game of Thrones "The Climb" episode, where the ice falls away? It seemed to make my subs struggle a bit.

Meh, that doesn't exactly leave me giddy with anticipation. World War Z was a good bass flick, certainly not great. It had a STEEP filter at 15Hz and the grenade scene was 2 seconds out of the whole movie. If that ginormous creature is stomping around and creating the mayhem I see in the trailers, there certainly shouldn't be a cutoff at 15Hz. We can hope for the best, though.

I'd take 15 over the 20, 30 or 40hz filters lately!

Honestly I think we should all consider ourselves lucky if godzilla goes to "only" 15hz.
Also, Last Days on Mars is pretty good. It has significant content to 5hz, and while its not loaded with bass it is used quite well. I actually posted about this one a while back but since it went under the radar here are some more graphs.

Content down to at least 10hz, strong level down to at least 15hz, peaks at 122dB.
Sounds great.

But much of it is centered around 40-50hz, causing it to sound like rumble instead of an ice wall collapsing while you climb it.
That is a shame, and takes away from the experience, but even so this is better than many movies.

Game of Thrones has many scenes with good sound and also nice bass.
It is not so much the big ones like Blackwater that stands out - it is doors closing, dragons flapping around, the horses, all kinds of smaller, subtle effects and occasionally some larger ones.

Like the dragons - a very good demo scene, it is loud and deep and very dynamic.

So I recently watched Percy Jackson/lightning thief and i was awesome for overall sound as well as room shaking bass.  So based on that, plus the fact that my kids loved the first one and the books, I bought the second one, sea of monsters.  To me, the entire movie sounded completely muted and dull!  Has anyone else thought this?  Granted, the scene at the end with Cronos was pretty cool, but so many other areas of the movie,  both bass and mids/highs that just came across like there was a blanket over all the speakers.  WTF?

Sea of Monsters wasn't nearly as good as Lightning Thief as far as bass goes but the ending with Kronos I thought was very intense. Overall I liked both movies.

Watched Kung Fu Panda today. Pretty good movie, pretty decent bass throughout. Wouldn't call anything demo worthy, but it was a well done little animated/kids movie. I'll keep it at the top of my daughter's stack along with Finding Nemo.

I forgot I had measured The Book Thief because I still haven't watched it. Here are the measurements. It's probably not a bass movie, or at least I'm not expecting much because it's very steeply filtered at 20Hz and has low levels, but huge dynamics!

The dynamics on the few bass scenes here are prime cut eek.gif Even filtered at 20hz "The Book Thief" use of dynamics coupled with that 20hz is capable of making a five star bass movie whip its head around at the sheer visceral room shuttering and pounding it produced cool.gif

While not a lot of bass content, the overall mix was first rate and a great movie to take in wink.gif

This is unfortunately true. The end scene is pretty decent but that's about it.

Yep! And considering how X-Men First Class was a first class bluray release as far as ULF is concerned, we can only hope for the same with this offering once it's released later this year.
Thanks for the heads up. smile.gif

When i saw the first trailer i wasn't overly excited.  They had already screwed up the time-line in the other movies, and now they are throwing time travel in to possibly screw it up more....and on top of that at first it looked like they changed the actors(which i really hate).  Further reviews have me pretty interested for sure.  FWIW, when i first saw first class, i was so bothered by the time-line issues, that I decided I really didn't care for the movie (marvel nut, btw).  It wasn't until I re-watched it on blu (saw it in theater, just recently bought on blu) because of the tag of bass monster on here that i started to enjoy the storyline and characters too.  great flick, and incredible audio for sure!

Just watched Iron Sky

Not a bass monster but had some good rumbling going on throughout the movie. I thought it was pretty funny. Anyone else see this movie?

Watched about half of FotR theatrical today, bass is so much better than either Hobbit movie. The bass was easily felt with my system volume down to -20.

I think it is the first time I've watched since upgrading my sub (BIC Accoustech PL-200 upgraded from a Polk PSW 110).

Sounds great.

But much of it is centered around 40-50hz, causing it to sound like rumble instead of an ice wall collapsing while you climb it.
That is a shame, and takes away from the experience, but even so this is better than many movies.

Game of Thrones has many scenes with good sound and also nice bass.
It is not so much the big ones like Blackwater that stands out - it is doors closing, dragons flapping around, the horses, all kinds of smaller, subtle effects and occasionally some larger ones.

Like the dragons - a very good demo scene, it is loud and deep and very dynamic.
Glad it's not just me, I think the sound on the GoT discs is amazing. Maybe not in terms of dynamics and bass but the soundfield, the sense of space and direction, the panning, and the clarity is about the best I've ever experienced in my system. And they look absolutely amazing too.
