You're welcome - we are all here to help each other out. Definitely check and make sure. We can't properly listen to the films on the master list and comment on them in anyway if we are watching them with their dynamic range compressed

The rope break is a hall of fame bass worthy moment. A movie short on original ideas but it does look and sound beautiful.

I believe I've read that the shotgun blasts, and the ceiling falling, are good bass moments. I'd hope the underwater tumbling has some good low notes, but I don't know.

I've read a few places that Finding Nemo has great bass moments, e.g. Darla tapping the fish tank, the whale, the submarine slipping down (?).

Let us not forget Star Wars. Before Lucas films special effects just did not have the impact they do now.

I watched nemo recently and it had some nice bass at times. Outside of the glass tap I don't remember anything specifically, but it never felt like it was lacking at all. 3d was good too

Not too bad! It made me feel like I was at a haunted house with all the different monsters popping out. It wasn't bad, but neither good. Your right about the LFE assault. Serious bass throughout the entire flick.

Nice! At least you didn't hate it! That is exactly what I find fun about it is it feels like some sort of haunted house/carnival ride in the HT. I can certainly understand people not liking it, but I think it's a blast.

Watched Art of Flight for the however many times now last night, but this time in 3d. Absolutely LOVE that audio track and film in general and the 3d while subtle definitely enhanced the overall experience to some degree. Another GREAT HT ride!

Some great sounds while Bruce is chasing Marlin and Dora around the submarine, as well as when the submarine slides down against the rock wall.

I recently got all of the movies on Blu-Ray and was very impressed with the amount of bass. Beyond the low end, the pod racer scene might be the best surround demo that I've found.

I watched finding Nemo with my mother-in-law about a year ago. The tapping scene nearly scared her off the couch.

A lot of AVRs default to on with Dolby TrueHD and DD discs, I know mine did.

+100. I've said it before, this is the #1 best A/V demo I've found for my theater. Only got better when I found it in 3D. Any self-respecting HT enthusiast will add this to their library right away.

Don't get your hopes up. Don't know how it measures, but it's probably very similar to the second one.

After reading the 'bass' history of Earthquake 1974,[ read this, its a bass treat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earthquake_(film)], with their needing to pump in 120 decibel 'infra bass', San Andreas is looking mighty interesting

Here's to hoping the theaters can deliver on this one!

BTW anyone know if the Earthquake bluray is filtered or does it have the original 120db stuff?

Good quote from Bluray.com about the sensasurround format used:

"Earthquake was the first of four films released theatrically in "Sensurround", a short-lived venture between Universal and speaker manufacturer Cerwin-Vega that attempted to enhance the theatrical experience by adding low frequency effects that were intended to be felt more than heard. The format was abandoned for a variety of reasons, including the cost to theater owners and the tendency for the Sensurround vibrations to damage ceilings, especially in older structures, and cause fragments of plaster to fall on patrons' heads."
