Next time you go to one of your "sub demo sessions," take along a copy of the IMAX: HUBBLE 3D BD.

Trust me...you'll want to sample the Space Shuttle Launch scene. eek.gif

Best plane flyover - P51D's doing the howl at the end of Saving Private Ryan. New Batman 2 (The Dark Knight) Hercules flyover, and of course the plane scene in Dark Knight Rises (new batman 3) the opening scene.

Best Impact Landings - Thor, Transformers when they land, Star Wars Ep 3 with the star destroyer? Anakin deadsticks into Corruscant.

The absolute best small arms fire scene ever in movie history has to be the bank shootout in H.E.A.T, guns sound so damn real (or at least sound a similar calibre to what I've heard). Black Hawk Down is also another good one.

The plane crash scene I like the most is in The Grey. This scene shakes the house and makes everyone's ears pop, lol. I am not sure if it has a star rating on this site.

In my opinion, you're being too micro in your post.

In the case of a subwoofer system, it's about the overall theme of the video and how successfully the sound track compliments the video being viewed.

There is no best. What there is, is the successful (acceptability) ability of the producer and sound engineer to convey to the viewing public, the intended emotional content on what "THEY" want the viewer to experience.

This is a combination of writing, acting, sound engineering and the ability of the overall collaboration to convey the intended visceral "experience."

My current favs are "The Long Kiss Goodnight" and "Battle: Los Angeles."

"The Mask", a compilation of skits, does this very well but in truth, the timing of it all is terrible.

"Let's Rock This Joint"

Regarding a question of this kind, the question becomes, what has the viewer done to raise the ability of their subwoofer system to "FULLY" replicated the intended viewing experience? If the "HOME THEATER OWNER" hasn't taken the time to install an up and running sound system capable of replicating the intent of the producer, none of anything on the part of the Home Theater owner means doodle.

If your system is not up to snuff, questions of this type are rhetorical.

3) What is the best minigun/gatling gun scene?

A) Book of Eli : End Battle at the house
B) Terminator 2 : Arnold fires on the cops from building window
C) The Last Samurai: The Howitzers at conclusion of end battle
D) Blackhawk Down: Helicopter shots
E) Sucker Punch: 2nd Samurai's gun
F) Sucker Punch: Amber's pink robot ship fires at planes in WWII segment
G) The Matrix: Neo fires on A. Smith as he tries to save Morpheus
H) Superman Returns: Minigun fires at Superman


It was a long time ago and I had a different sub setup, but I remember being extremely impressed with the minigun or whatever it was in the movie Act of Valor when the are firing from the boat on the river. I thought it was better than any of the above scenes that I have seen.

I had attempted to get the thread rolling, but it didn't take off like I had hoped. I think focus on bass scenes makes a lot more sense than assigning a grading scale to a movie. For example, the movie Open Range has one great extended bass scene. That's it. Other movies have numerous scenes where there is big bass, but which is the best one?

Perhaps I went about it the wrong way. Maybe a better thread would be best bass scene in each movie?

I think a classification system like what you had is good. Just way too many categories.

You forgot the startup and takeoff of "The Bat" from the alley scene.

"The Bat" takeoff and flyover at 4:45.

I just added a second SVS so have been looking for scenes to demo. Came across one by accident this weekend and thought I'd add it to the list here (even though not a gun shooting or explosion scene).

But in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2nd movie) About 20-30 minutes into the movie where Harry and his friend are flying back to Hogwarts in the car, they crash into a tree. Then the tree comes to life and is beating the car. The Bass is incredible. Expecially the last attempt to hit the car by the tree.

Also, at the end of the movie, when Harry is being chased / fighting the snake, there's some really good bass scenes in that as well.
