This movie is on the menu for tonight's sensory pleasure!! Great to hear it will be good for both A/V.

I think 5 minutes with the Server Scene and EVERYTHING in the house will be broken in.

Question, please re the master list. Specifically, there often are some designations of recording type following the name of the movie. Examples: (dts), (dir cut dts), (dts re-mix), (blu-ray dts-hd:ma 5.1)

Does this mean to hear the desired LFE sound that I must look for the DVD of that title displaying any of the examples above? Outside of Blue Ray, is it prominently displayed on the cover somewhere? I mean, if I rent from Red Box, will any such designation be visible to me before I actually pay for the DVD?

Or, the answer may be different/more simple than I am understanding.

Your help is appreciated!

At first I was glad I rented it but by the end it kinda grew on me and the wife loved it ( demographic perhaps!) and do to the superb A/V execution I'll be picking a copy up

The Maze Runner has quite a bit of bass, and it's all well mixed to go with the events in the movie. It's probably a bit low level I turned my subs up a few dB. Movie was surprisingly decent, and the surround mix was really good as well.

I also viewed Ratatouille last night and I'm perplexed as to why I don't have it in my collection but will do so soon, not only does it scream reference from both an A/V standpoint but its a disc that serves well for demos, one thing to note is got a LPCM track that must be selected if your bitstreaming as I am or it will be DD 5.1, for the few movies recorded using this codec ( The Crazies and Akira come to mind) I've always found them superb and with gutwrenching bass and dynamic range.

There isn't a fixed rule when it comes to mixing the LFE channel, it's completely open to interpretation.

The bass drop at the beginning of Edge of Tomorrow is a good example. The bass is only present in two of the eight channels available ( center and LFE). The other six are quiet or at least bass-free. Where is the logic in that!?

Guardians of the Galaxy has good bass down into the 18-20hz range. Should be right at home with your subs.


and to address the last couple pages going on about Oblivion, OHF, and OZ...Oblivion simply pimp slaps them both. Sure OHF digs a bit lower, but Oblivion was a audio masterpiece. It is the only movie in the entire list I have watched 3 times...and I could easily watch it again.

Yes, Oblivion is an amazing movie with bass to burn. That movie alone convinced me I need a subwoofer better than my EMPtek10i10i (a very good sub, but only good down to 30hz). Oblivion made the EMP sub distort if I had the gain up over 50%.
Godzilla 2014 isn't a great movie, but has some great scenes that test a subwoofer!

Looking Forward to DOTPOTA when I get the chance to see it. Enjoyed the first one and wonder how many they plan to make. The first time around they did a total of five Planet Of The Ape films.
Yep !!
Thanks..
Expendables 3 was great overall and with excellent bass. It will be awhile before I can watch the first two as I get the feeling the bass is not present. But I will still give them a spin for the action.I'm looking forward to spinning DOTPOTA tonight, bass or not as I too enjoyed the first one as well. If they continue the sequels, hopefully somebody will wise up and throw some pounding bass in the tracks !

Crank it up and enjoy !! I really hate the fact I missed the Best Buy BF deal for 9.99 for a brand new copy of it. Anyway myself, wife and kids enjoyed this one overall. Movie has a really good twist that I was not expecting. You will figure it out while viewing.

YES SIR, (LOL).......
Not only an audio masterpiece, but the visuals, plot, acting, music soundtrack, all top notch and I'll admit it is one of my all time favorite films to date overall !!
I find it really amazing that this film still get's mentioned quite a bit in this thread and so it must have reached out and touched quite a few folks !!

Revisit completed !! Bass hits hard and there is some ULF going on. One just has to turn up the mater volume on the a/v receiver to abstract the bass. Not a bad movie overall !! However X-MEN FC is IMO a few steps above !!

Just bump the sub level by 4db! and its a game changer on its LFE, it lends a great atmosphere not present during my first viewing

Just finished Dawn of The Planet of the Apes The bass was ok and lends itself well to the content as the point came across clear that these apes meant business otherwise it no LFE powerhouse but its not a complete waste either. And just to say as a movie it was fantastic and a good blind buy today

Just watched it too and really liked it.

Agree with your assessment - bass was there when needed.

I did just that and enjoyed all this film had to offer ! As seem's to be the norm IMO of course Disney give's their all to both the A/V movie experience. I know in time it will get a revisit with the grandson. Yes a good twist. These retelling's of my childhood stories sure can add a twist to my memories.

I concur with your statement !! No power house in the LFE department , but a very good film indeed !! Although it had lot's opportunity for LFE and ULF in some scene's !!

Awesome !! Glad you enjoyed this film. I agree with your opinion as Disney did come strong with this one for sure.

I felt like the film, especially visually, had a lot of similarities to Oz. Kind of like schmaltz/fantasy and not really my cup of tea either. I thought Oz, as mentioned before suffers for this as it's got some killer bass scenes but never really gets mentioned much.

You guys should check out The Babadook, has a few good LFE moments in the beginning. Nothing amazing but pretty cool.

and to address the last couple pages going on about Oblivion, OHF, and OZ...Oblivion simply pimp slaps them both. Sure OHF digs a bit lower, but Oblivion was a audio masterpiece. It is the only movie in the entire list I have watched 3 times...and I could easily watch it again.
Really? Pimp slaps them? No. Objective measurements tell a different story. All get 5 star execution, so that's a wash. An argument can be made (and I make it myself) that Oblivion is better than Oz due to the extension and overall mix. But pimp slaps? One wins on level, and one wins on extension.

And as far as OHF, it rates a 4.75 to Oblivion's 4.5 and misses 5 stars by .2 db. I don't know in what world that equals a slap, let a lone one of the pimp variety.

i think basshead was talking about the soundtrack when considered as a whole, as well as the movie itself...not just the LFE
