Exactly. Call me Pollyanna, but I'm quite happy to pay for that which gives me such great joy. It is a tremendous undertaking of thousands of individuals, from the creative to the most basic blue collar enterprise, to mount a movie production, and I want to support it -- keep it coming! It even makes me happy to turn over my hard-earned money to this part of the American economy -- the legitimate means by which we all inter-depend and make our livings.

Blu-ray is even reasonably priced and provides the best method to deliver content -- at least for me, so why anyone screws all that, I really can't fathom -- to save $16 -- rent it when it comes out....?

^^^Always confuse that with OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, which I watched last night to see how accurate my memory was as to the bass (which I had commented on recently). Yep, pretty strange disconnect of the ultra low with mid-bass hollow zone on that one. Does not do anything for me.

And, possibly apropos of my "RAH! America!" comments above, found it disturbing to watch all that imagery of slaughter in front of the White House. WHITE HOUSE DOWN I remember as fairly inane, is not flagged in my brain for bass -- but I'm sure you will regard those traces of impressions as wholly unreliable (as you should...)

Jupiter Ascending

Ok movie but great bass and surround sound (and visuals)

Worth watching purely for these reasons

There's a pretty good scene at 1:01:00 with a pretty cool sweep...
Just played it 10 times...son came down after the 4th play cause another broken vase upstairs wife ah well...

The bass is very good!

I'm usually able to tolerate a bad movie with an awesome track, but as good as the bass was in that movie, I couldn't sit through it and I skipped through most of it. Is the scene you're talking about the one at the waterfall?

I have to say that I'm now 3 for 3



Lots of this type of sound and with authority



Well worth it in IMO!
Lots of 25-35HZ especially towards the end...

Watched Monsters-DC last night. The bass was very good. The overall mix is very loud even in the surround channels. The movie is just bad, IMO.

I watched Monsters: DC over the weekend and thought the mix was great, lots of great bass moments...but like tvoung sez, the whole thing was mixed quite loud. I had it at -15MV and probably could have went down a couple db because the wife was wincing a bit here and there.

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie...thought it was a great war movie, just wish it had more of a "connect" with the first movie (which I enjoyed even more).

I watched Ragnarok on Netflix last night. The movie was in DD+. The bass was ok but, not insane. The movie has subscript if you like to read.

That confirms it then. Streaming nueters the bass

The BR bass is rediculous

Streaming is hit or miss. I've found times when tv shows have way more bass on the stream than on the bluray version of the show. I think it boils down to what audio mix is used more so then what you would think the issue would be, namely (range) compression.

Ragnarock definitely had bass on the bluray!

Yeah, I doubt streaming in general is the culprit, but rather the possibility of a different mix. Of course there could be cases (as you mention) where the streamed mix is preferred over the blu ray. Recording/mix is the main determining factor of how good an audio track is and not lossy vs lossless (of course lossless is preferred all else being equal) I keep realizing more and more. I watched a Grateful Dead show over the weekend with a standard plain jane DD 5.1 mix that sounded better than most blu ray lossless concerts I have listened to because the recording/mix (taken from the multitrack) was so damn good! One of my absolute favorite multichannel music discs is the DTS 5.1 Pink Floyd DVD Division Bell because again, the recording/mix is insane. Lossy vs lossless plays a very small role IME and IMO.

EDIT: I agree though about the Ragnarok blu ray mix as it is fantastic in the low end!

Glad I wasn't the only one that found this to be an excellent bass ride! Yeah, definitely some low stuff at times as my kickers were struggling a bit in a few scenes which only happens with the deep stuff.

I agree Todd, same experience here. Its the mix. If only we could have the deep bass lossy mixes remixed in the nearfield lossless bluray versions more often.

I was watching mission to mars and I was blown away at how ahead of its time that audio mix was. Its imaging is better than half the stuff I watch these days and its only on DVD! The visuals are still stunning on DVD which is a surprise also.

Yeah, have to affirm that the LFE is gut-punch to the extent you would never be ho-hum about it. Absolutely grabs the attention (...I thought perhaps "ridiculous" had been misspelled, but actually "rediculous" makes me think of green bars of amplitude suddenly shooting into the red -- so that is accurately descriptive as well!)

Second person I've seen comment about the Netflix version of Raganarok being average. For me it (Bluray) had one of the hardest hitting bass scenes I can remember. Very impressive.
