Not sure about the audio since I was concentrating on the screen but I think it was pretty decent. And scary!

That's what it's supposed to do!😉

Anyone seen/measured The Woman in Black with Daniel Radcliffe? Got it from NF and wondered if there was anything to it.

Edit: the last movies to really scare the **** outta me was The Ring and The Grudge. House on Haunted Hill wasn't bad either.

I really enjoyed it's use of LFE for building suspense...very effective, IMO.

I wonder how '1408' would fare in bass dept?. It gets good reviews for its overall sound mix. http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/1408-Blu-ray/1028/

I've noticed the gain knobs seem to increase very quickly without having to turning them up when sitting level. They seem very sensitive. I don't run them too hot tho as to conserve as much headroom as possible to keep up with my Pro Cinema mains.

Nice set up with those HSU subs. The gain knobs are indeed very sensitive. Careful not to move them after sub set up.biggrin.gif

I guess that's why it's interesting to read numerous takes on specific movies. We all have different impressions of them. I personally found Sinister to be anything BUT scary. I found it a little silly actually.

I definitely thought The Conjuring was a much better movie and the sound design was excellent, but for me, the movie was spoiled by all the hype (much the way it's being overhyped here). If I had simply watched it, I would have enjoyed it much more, but too many friends kept hyping it up saying, "This was THE scariest movie I've seen anytime recently! (or EVER)", and girls claiming, "I'm usually good with horror movies, but this one made me scream more than once".

By the time I watched it, my expectations were WAY too high. I might have twitched in surprise a couple of times at some of the hard bass hits, but it never even had the chance to scare me or creep me out because I was anticipating way too much out of it. These days when I want someone to enjoy the experience, I just tell them, "Yeah, it's good. You should watch it. Great use of bass, so don't turn it down when you watch it". No hype, no anticipation or great expectations. That way they can see it for themselves.

Anyone watch the horror movie V/H/S 2. Bass in the last segment with the Aliens was shaking the whole room. Anytime the aliens showed up. Would love to see some graphs.

Do you have any time stamps? I haven't seen the movie yet so I don't know what scene that is.

Movie is not very good ( although my son is addicted) but the bass is great!

'Legend of Hercules' comes with an amazing soundtrack and pretty darn good LFE. Not all that special or particularly low, but good and fun nonetheless.

Graph is taken from the Blu-ray, only the LFE channel.

Any idea what it looks like with the bass from all channels summed?

^^ here it is. that spike around the 25Hz area was towards the end of the movie if I remember correctly. The rest of the time it stays around the 30-40Hz range.

Can only watch one movie tonight.

Really want to watch a 5 star movie in hell boy 2. I just bought both hell boy 1 and 2. If I watch 2 first will I be lost?

I dug into the first page to see what movies I can get that I already didn't have and the AVP twins were the ones I bought. Granted not really the best in series but I never watched them on BD but at $12 usd for both movies, how can I complain?!



I wish I owned VHS2 on BD and when it comes down in price I will purchase. But I do believe the bass heavy scenes is the final segment of the film, when the aliens appear.

Yes I think it will be missing a ton of character development w/o one first.

but, if you were just interested in the audio excellence, you would be just fine.  part 2 stands on its own just fine.  fantastic flick for not only bass but surrounds as well. there is a scene where the bad guy is putting on a sword show in a subway and the surrounds go crazy.  really cool scene with a sudden blast of sound at the end that sorta catches you by surprise.

No problem at all. I watched the second movie first and enjoyed it more I believe because I didn't know what to expect. Still liked the first movie just as much but obviously the sound, especially bass, more engaging in Hellboy 2.

Good suggestion Audiofan just watching TIH myself and loving it! Final scene with Abomination is right up there with the best bass moments of all time!

Recommend Dredd too, just gave it another run. Brilliant bassline soundtrack, Dredd's hand Cannon rocks and cool movie worth a revisit.

Great to see HB2 get the props it deserves. It has always been a bass and overall audio favorite of mine since it first hit blu. I asked quite a few times to have this graphed and a few posters here did not think it would be anything special so it took A while before it was actually done. Seemed like I was the only one raving about it in this thread for a while way back when which I always thought was odd.

Watched Thor 2 on Fri night and enjoyed the bass. Hit hard in all the right spots with good enough extension for me. Movie on the other hand was a one and done IMO, so glad I rented.

Homeland was fun in the low end as well I thought.
