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.
