My wife on the other hand… well she hated it. In her words: "There was no redeeming quality to that movie". But she also thinks big subwoofers are unnecessary so her opinion doesn't count.

Most definitely NOT a chick flick.

The bass actually extends down to about 15hz with a few single digit spikes as well. It's just that there is a HUGE 30hz spike in there which might make the stuff below that not stand out as much. I had to look this up since I remember liking the bass in this one on my setup, but it's been a while since I've seen it.

Wel it's primarily a 30hz movie haha. Not enough 15hz content to call it a good bass movie imho. And when there is 15hz its not loud enough to matter

The PvA shows a steep drop after 30hz

There is no chance for a nurturing female to come back from that. For that reason I won't even let my wife watch the movie....

Good point. Luckily she missed that part because she came in when I was already 45 minutes into the movie.

Yeah, but therein lies perhaps one of the few demonstrable virtues of the flick -- Wick becomes champion of an animal cause to the extent that wicked human lives are of such diminished significance, the ratio of loss might be 50(?) to a single innocent. Of course those doomed men were also very rude, boisterous, full of themselves, and generally unpleasant as well, so.....but what elevates the production is that the proximate cause propelling Wick's relentless quest for meting out justice, are his annihilated tender affections for the defenseless.

Been some number of months since I rewatched, and don't recall much super low stuff, but not that much a fan of that anyway. With older flicks, I've almost come to such point that any emphasis on the low end which can be detected, comes as pleasant surprise. Still, can't think of many older than ten years that hold up to what they commonly achieve now. Will have both MONSTERS: DC and SEVENTH SON by tonight, so we'll perhaps have example of some of the best what the mixers are doing of late.

Were you purposefully using eloquence to detract from the fact that you didn't use spoiler tags? I dunno, but regardless, your prose is top notch You should write movie reviews

Well, I suppose I did think that maybe the plot points were sufficiently buried in the verbiage that no offense would be taken...? The truth is, I don't know how to use the tags, but JOHN WICK is pretty straightforward anyway. From Ralph's AVS review you easily get it's a shoot-em-up, and he says: "Let’s start with the obvious, any fan of the action genre should have no trouble predicting how a film like John Wick will play out, and I didn’t. The screenplay doesn’t dig very deep,..." Anyway, I had fun with it, but the soundtrack was inaccessible with my conventional settings -- a product of "seamless branching," I gather, so I sent it back -- and that was the only reason. I will own it once they correct their encoding issues.
