finally saw edge of tomorrw. really cool movie overall. the bass sweep at the beginning was just awesome...completely shook the house and found rattles i didn't know were there. i will say that while there were a couple decent moments of bass but after the monster sweep at the beginning i thought it would end up as a bass fest. pretty good mix overall, but a little light after the opening scene. that being said, i will be ordering the movie as i loved the story and it was a nice overall mix with plenty of surround activity.

Just finished Maleficent on DVD as Redbox did not have the BD version in the machine. Definitely a kid friendly movie !Anyway good movie with a twist, and with a very well done 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound track that gives all speakers some play. As far as the bass it was decent and had a few good low hit's here and there. Will watch again, but no time soon. Also attempted Hercules-2014, but failed. (LOL) dosing off. There was some upper bass in this one, but nothing with deep extension that caught my attention. Rental only as I really did not care for the movie overall.

MY 7.4 SET UP. Not Perfect But Let's Just Say I'm Happy !!

I haven't seen the first one since it came out so I'm not really sure, but I definitely don't remember it having the kind of weight the 2nd one does. Again, my experience was watching it on Vudu, if that matters.

Ok Thanks! I've added it to my queue anyway as I don't like to watch sequels to much without seeing the first one. I did watch Seal Team 8 though for the bass without ever seeing Seal Team 1 through 7.

Yes if you got good bass from Vudu while watching Planes 2 then it should be good on BD I would think.

Thanks for the post up on Maleficent! You had to go old school and watch a DVD? Nice to see the audio was done well and was the same on the DVD and BD. For some films I've noticed that different soundtracks which are sometimes better will be given to BD's. Nice to see it is kid friendly and will keep that in mind for family visits.

Hercules was another film you dosed off on eh? From the post guess it's not a sleeper hit either! It's still a ways down in my queue so I'll just let it move up on it's own.

Funny, but I never saw a response to this post Hop. And I can't find any other comments on Divergent using thread search.

Just picked it up and will post back once we spin it. But you must be right, it can't move the world, or the thread would be filled with comments.

Yep,
The DVD actually had a really good looking picture that is most certainly on par with a BD. The BD player that I have, Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD may have something to do with that as well ! However I would give the nod to a BD as it has a bit more depth in color and the HD surround sound formats. I will give Maleficent another spin and will add it to my collection once the price comes down (a lot) LOL.
I will give Hercules another try, but later.

I was going to yesterday but we had family in town visiting so I didn't get the chance yet. But my mission these next few days is to watch that movie.

But you can bet I'm really looking forward to the bass in it and I will certainly let you know my thoughts soon.

Must have flew by your post. I seen this film awhile back and even though it had a few good bass spots it was not something I posted about for there was not enough IMO. I thought the film was ok and the rest of the sound was good. Just my thoughts.

Watched this a few years ago myself. I do plan a revisit sometime in the future. I know the wife will not be to happy as she does not like reading films. I hope she can get past that as she may enjoy it for what it is.

We got to watch Divergent last night. I thought the movie was surprisingly good. The overall audio was good, with some effective use of surround, but the bass was surprisingly light for an action flick like this.

On a whim I watched the Conjuring last night again since gaining an additional 6db of output and that track is still the cats meow and then some. Having watched Hercules(Funny and mildly entertaining but could've use my tv's speakers) and Xmen DoFP (loved it and bought it but need a second viewing but 3.5 for now due to poor level) over the weekend as well! It no less stole the show

I think you'll like it Toe, but would still like to hear your thought's!

I was in my queue today to see what was coming this week and looked to see if Netflix still had The Host to watch on BD. I seen they do and also have it for streaming so I may get to do a revisit sooner then I planned. I'll just stream it when I'm between discs.

Epic film for LFE - enjoy
Speaking of flight of the Phoenix, there was a propeller accident that was similar to that movie. Thankfully the woman is said to be ok.

From most of the post I've seen the bass was not done as well as the first one. I'm still looking forward to seeing it as I enjoyed the first one.

The first was great. I seen the 2nd in the theater this summer and just ok I guess. Not as good as the first, but my daughter likes the movie so I will get it. Looking forward to the measurements tomorrow.

Huge disappointment compared to the first. HUGE. Randy Thom movies used to be an automatic must-hear. Not anymore.

That said, I loved the movie. I think it's arguably better than the first. And stunning visuals too, of course. Definite buy for me, despite the bass.

We will take it to the polls this week LOL! So you liked it better than the first huh? I gotta watch it again, maybe I will like it better the second time around.

As anything subject like "better" it's up to interpretation. I love both movies. But the heavy weight of toothless flying, the huge effects with the giant dragons? Just nothing. Don't think this one is a level thing, either.

Thanks for the report and what a huge disappointment. I was really looking forward to this from a bass perspective.

Saw Interstellar the other day. Loads of lfe. Really though, the film had content of what I perceived to be effects reaching down below 30hz at my local theater. Tons of midbass also of course. Soundtrack was also very organ heavy, so there is promise of low notes there as well.

I try to temper my expectations based on the limitations of local theaters. So if I had guess, this movie will either have all the high level content and extension of dark knight rises (due to filter), or if unfiltered will prove to be quite the treat with high level content across the board. The soundtrack was at moments alarmingly loud at my local theater so this too reminded of dark knight rises overcooked ost, hopefully it is not as bad for the blu ray mix/ in room or was simply an artifact of my seating.

I won't post a spoiler here, but during a certain scene of the movie, there was a bass passage so long and so intense it set off the exit alarm!
