Prediction:

EOT goes down to at least 20Hz with authority...

The first 15-20 seconds of the opening scene I swear I heard the theater subs struggling... Sounded like they were trying, but...odd noises...

Going to be very interesting to see the charts.

Got my fingers crossed because I really liked the movie, but I'd probably make the purchase regardless of extension...

I was very conscious of this going into the movie, but I thought it did just enough to get the point across. I also noted SEVERAL opportunities for the director to be predictable, but I was kept guessing the whole time.

Also, the acting was on point and the plot/character development was nicely done as well.

I felt "Lone Survivor" was an excellent movie, and it too is a bass monster.
I thought 3 Days to Kill had some decent bass in it as well. I also enjoyed the movie and thought it was well done.

Watched HTTYD2 at a Cinemark Nexgen theater (non-3d).

This theater is less than a year old, so I thought it would have the latest and great audio and video.

At this theater, is was a complete disappointment. The bass was non-existent!

I wonder if these theaters draw you in because they have the IMAX (XD) for a couple of movies where they have the state of the art sound and video, but scrimp on the rest of the theaters?

Very disappointed...good thing it was a good flick at least...

For a split second there I thought you were talking about your own theatre...... Got me excited! I thought "Hey if Popalocks theatre is struggling this is gonna be an awesome ride". Your subs don't struggle though do they? Looking forward to EOT after that review as well as Lone Survivor.

Watched Valkyrie tonight which had a couple of good scenes but not really worth watching for the bass. Bass didn't sound all that realistic if that's possible? It was loud enough but not very dynamic sort of monotone.

Talkin about new transformers movie, this is going to be new reference bass movie in this year. The end scenes was insanity, like 10 minutes(or how long it lasted?) of fotp barrel roll pressuration or similar on that huge spaceship sucking metal. Sadly the movie blows, like the rest of series.
It definitely could be one of the best bass movies ever, but it's all going to depend on the blu-ray mixing. They could filter it at 30 hz like avengers or man of steel and just completely ruin it.

Finally watched Robocop today. I actually enjoyed it much more than i thought i would. Similar to the original, but still a bit of a fresh take on it. Bass wise, it had some cool moments...nothing super spectacular though. On that note though, there were also some moments that the bass didn't seem to match what was going on in the scene, and a few "sloppy" bass moments that could have not been there as well. Overall, pretty cool flick though.

We went to the movies to see something, I forget what, but I heard constant bass coming from the theater next to us. I finally got up and walked out to see what was playing and it was EOT. Another movie was Godzilla. I am really looking forward to the fall, there is a nice lineup of movies that should be coming in by late August. I actually have skipped out on seeing allot of these movies because I will be buying them on release day. Looking forward to XMen, Edge of Tomorrow, Godzilla and HTTYD2. We seen HTTYD2 in the theater and it was ok, but the soundstage is so bad in out theater that I cannot tell if it was good or not. The movie was just OK.

The ENTIRE duration of days of future past all I could hear was bass coming from the theater beside me playing godzilla. DOFP had no bass, hopefully it's because it's lower than theaters can play

Our local theater here sucks for sound. They really need to get ahold the likes of Danley sound labs, JTR or Seaton sound and get some good speakers in there. You would really think that any theater would do everything possible to give an incredible theater experience and make you want to come back. My theater only made me want to build my own theater.

The sound of the theater is quite good, it's just that physics limits the bass so that 30 or 40 hz is about the lowest it can play. Godzilla probably has really loud 30 hz, which is quite hard to stop from leaking unless they build like 40 inch thick cement walls between the theaters.

i'm guessing this is the case, because in the theater that i saw DOFP you could tell there is some low stuff throughout the movie. it was an "ultra" theater, and i could sense some low end, it just wasn't very powerful. totally expected, but the fact i noticed anything at all tells me it should end up being a fantastic blu.

If you've seen Beowulf, it needs some tiebreaker votes at Data-Bass.

Reefdvr27, didn't you say you were gonna vote on The Lego Movie? What'd you think of it? While I may have called the poll, it remains open for you to vote, so if the execution score or recommendation changes, we'll update it. No hanging chads, fixed recounts, Supreme Court decisions or voting improprieties here!

I realize this is a "movie" thread, but I gotta pass this on...


I was watching the Smithsonian channel last nite, a show called "the elephant king"...a documentary.


when the elephants interacted they emitted a very low, guttural growl that vibrated the room...I looked and my MV was at -28.


I quickly cranked it up to -15 and it shook the room...VERY cool effect


i only use my buttkicker with my oppo player...but my suspended riser was vibrating!


I don't know if it was foley effect or the actual elephant vocal, but it was alotta fun!


I remember the belt-driven contra-bass being invented to mimic the elephant way back in the 90's I believe...


I can see why...


my subs don't do much below 16hz, so i imagine most of this energy was in the 20hz range...but it was strong




check this out if you get a chance

I voted 5 for Beowulf. I watched it awhile back and the bass is huge. I also bought it sometime ago. Well worth it IMO.
