Oh and there is a lot of below 20hz. Even below 10hz in Hanna. The rotary subs caused the garage door to rattle a lot during viewing

Does anybody know if they fix the bass on the bluray of Star Wars Episode 3? The dvd sounds horrible. Alot of compression.

From what I've read it's simply a lossless version of the same track. Meaning no change, basically.

Yeah, it's been mentioned for months. Bosso noted the quality of the bass in the movie, too. Here's his take + waterfalls: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...a#post21039966

I was surprisingly entertained by the movie. It's done well all-around. It should be on the list. Somewhere in the 4-4.5 range sounds about right.

All of the saga have stronger bass on DVD than on BD. Episode II was good for its time....ep3 was a total bust, sounds like it was mixed for tv speakers....well, not that bad, but compared to ep2, could be much better.

I finally had time to sit down and watch this movie (BD-Dolby True HD). Overall I thought the SQ was very good. The LFE does what it is supposed to, and there are several deep trolling, potent scenes.

As was mentioned earlier, the canon battle at the end is like a bass crescendo of sorts in the movie, but there's plenty of deep stuff throughout. I give it a solid 4 stars.

I'm late to the Xmen:FC party. What a track. Wife came in from the kitchen asking if I "felt that" during one scene. Good stuff.

"Sucky" is subjective, but it's the same track. I didn't like it either. Lack of dynamics overall and weak LFE.

I just finished KFP2 as well. Extremely well balanced, detailed and dynamic soundtrack. I actually recognized the 7 channel mix. In some I don't. The LFE was very solid. Not in the top tier, but enough to induce smiles.

Just watched KFP2 as well. LFE was good, not great. A bit conservative IMO. 3.5-4.0 is how I would rate it.

Dull mix in, dull mix out. Lossy, lossless or uncompressed.

I agree the bass in the first one was so much better!

As another side note, I watched the first half of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" yesterday... again, nothing earth shattering to report on low end (although the score is beautiful with great warmth), but a really subtle, dense track, great surround work, fantastic dialog reproduction, and detail detail detail.... highly recommended as a study of the craft of film sound..

"Drive" is a very, very solid flick. All around, it's great in cinematography, direction, acting (though Gosling's character has a little too much "No Country for Old Men" in him), and sound production, but it doesn't have the most low end. What it does have is utilized expertly and with good impact. I give it 4.5/5 as a movie, and 3.5 with regards to this thread. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

As for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," it looks pretty decent, and I'd love to check it out but it doesn't appear to be available for us lay people yet. Perhaps that will change as I make more friends in the film industry down here?

For me, "Kung Fu Panda 2" was a letdown after the first. Its depth, volume and variety of bass wasn't nearly what I was expecting. The whole score seemed muted. It's decent, but nowhere near the first. That's actually how I felt about the movie as a whole, too.

I expected much more from KungFu Panda 2 than what it actually delivered. It was ok, but nothing special. As far as recent movies go, Cowboys & Aliens was the one that really delivered in the bass department for me.

Tinker will open in theaters wide sometime in Q1 2012... right now it is in limited "awards contention" release... I would imagine you will see it wide in January and coming to the home ~May.

"'Awards contention' release" is precisely the source of viewing I was hoping for, especially in these movies that are limited or international release. Out of curiosity, are those screeners still provided on dvd, or has the academy increased the quality?

Good point, which bears keeping in mind. If the quality of the recorded sound was garbage going in it will remain garbage coming out.
