There was some really good fly-over effects especially on the opening scene and the final confrontation. While a few have said the gunshots aren't as good as lone survivor, I'm wondering if it more a style decision, it felt to me that they decided if you cab build a robocop then the weapon design would also be more advanced then in our reality, so they have a different sound. The surround effects where really good, but found robocop to be a fun ride, lone survivor left me feeling emotionally drained as it pulled you into the action and made you consider more what they were going through

add me to the list of "lone survivor" fans...


had no intention of buying this movie but the reviews here swayed me...good thing as i would have missed a great flick...

"saving private ryan" and "hurt locker" got nuthin on this baby...just a totally involving surround experience


tho it had some VERY nice bass moments, i didn't come away thinking of this as a bass demo movie for some reason...

Fellas, question.....

does this chart mean that at it loudest point, at approx 27 hz, that scene in a perfectly calibrated theater ( not running the sub hot ) would register about 108db?

My thinking is that iirc, LFE is suppose to peak at 115db, and because the 27hz spike reaches to about -7dbfs, 115-7= 108db.  

Am i correct or am i misinterpreting something?



Those are PEAK and AVERAGE levels of the movie. Those levels are not really in dBFS, but are relative dB levels. You really can not translate those frequency specific bin dB levels to any accurate SPL level.

I agree it's not pop in a scene to show your buddies. But the bass was extraordinary. So real and punching great stuff

Here's my take on Lone Survivor !!!
Although it starts out slow it is an excellent movie and a great blind buy for those who are still on the fence on whether to buy it or not. The gun shots were impressive and I mean MOST IMPRESSIVE !! All other tracks will have a tough time matching what I heard with the gun fire. I mean the bullets where flying in front ,back and all around which sounded really real !! It may not be bass demo material for some ,but IMO it sure is for surround sound with the gun fire !!
The bass hit hard in short burst without long extension bass which matched the on screen action and a couple of the bass scenes caught me off guard to the point I flinched (NICE). wink.gif
The bass did not match up against some of the real heavy hitters such as Pulse,The Incredible Hulk (2008),Underworld: Awakening, but the bass was still good nonetheless !!
I view this film as a guy film and not a family one. The movie may have more of an impact on those who actually served in the worlds greatest Military !! I will revisit it again as it is now part of my BD collection. biggrin.gif

PS,
I don't need a sealed sub to experience what was experienced, end of story. !! biggrin.gif

Question ??
I really do not want to blind buy the New Robcop just yet and I really prefer to watch BD as I really like DTS-HD Master tracks and Dolby True HD on my system. So will I get the same bass experience from Directv cinema, as REDBOX will not have the disc for a while ?
Let me know.
Thanks.

i agree completely here.  fantastic full system demo as far as completeness of surrounds and a few nice bass moments that were well placed.  if you wanted to demo something to show what good surround home theater sounds like, this would be a great option.  very powerful movie as well, which makes it even better.  i still think i prefer saving private ryan as a complete movie though, but it's not a landslide, just a different storyline.  unless you are sensitive to what i refer to as "realistic" war movies, then this is a definite blind buy for sure.

just curious, and it may be a flashback and all, but i was wondering about the day the earth stood still.  ive never seen it before, but its on FX right now and even through the tv and cable box, there seems to be some pretty nice LFE moments.  i can only imagine it would be even better on blu.  has this ever been graphed?

No, it will have compressed audio, probably more compressed than a DVD. How much is the direct tv rental? I think the blu ray is $20 so if you rent it for $6 and buy it for $10 in 6 months you have saved $4.

I watched it last night and really liked it.

My wife really liked it too. She thought it was way better than the original. I don't really remember the original - plan to watch it this week.

Thanks for the reminder as I remember watching Saving Private Ryan back in the day on DVD with one sub. It was an awesome movie and is worthwhile to be added to my collection. Now that I have 4-subs and with the disc being BD, I really think it will sound a lot better this time around. So here I come Amazon. !!biggrin.gif

Dircetv is indeed over priced and I only use that as a last option. We have Netflix but only streaming and new releases take to long to get there. REDBOX is also slow on some of the new releases on DVD and BD.

Watching the original Terminator movie on Netflix. Yeah I know, this movie has some nice bass in spots on explosions for what it's worth.

I am sorry guys but you have no idea what you are missing! Good and the bad. I just watched Lone Survivor and I have never felt a more realistic helicopter ever. It was in my room! I have 8 20 amp breakers for my high sensitive system and it popped two of them. My screen was literally waving in the wind. Are you guys running reference with a LT boost? I am not kidding, this is my new bass demo! I will demo it just to show the breakers pop! Only movie to do so.

You have limiters to protect, no? Meaning if the bass gets too crazy your amp will just limit? I did not realize I was sharing my projector with my bass amp so I will try the amp alone.

I was just wondering if the bassheads in this thread make any use of Audysseys dynamic compression features or leave it off. I would think that the concept of dynamic compression would be antithetical to what people on this thread are looking for, but I'd appreciate a confirmation (or refutation). Thanks!

Sorry, I bypass all processors now and just use it for switching and D/A conversion. I use the NanoAVR for everything else.

Lone Survivor gets another vote for sound. The whole soundtrack is incredible, from the use of every speaker to the bass. It's gotta be one of the best for surround sound I've heard. Unfortunately the movie itself is about a 2 out of 5 for me, from surviving numerous rpg shots close to them, to the damn bad guys wearing freaking eyeliner, wtf.

I may have too much boost down low(15 hz and under) from the LT but since I am running the rest flat it is still not as hot as others house curves. I find just boosting the low end with a LT running the whole LFE hot is not needed.
