Oh my gawd, yes. This movie - Superbit / DTS - is a real delight. Some spectacular scenes. Not brilliant moviemaking, but very enjoyable.

While certainly not a 'sub-sonic' test DVD... Open Range (DTS) has some great sonic depth. (Has it already been mentioned??) Thunderstorm in begining and gunfight near the end have great impact. Even with my meager sub (8").

The Toolbox Murders, the new one directed by Tobe Hooper. Great, or at least, frequent LFE.

Unfortunatly I watched this Toolbox Murders. Sucked as a movie but has some of the lowest steady bass notes I have ever heard. One scene your not really hearing anything but I could feel the couch shaking. Should be great for a nice sub workout, it was for my 20-39 pci.

Actually Toolbox Murders is a nice slasher flick if you are inclined toward horror movies. The best thing Tobe has done in quite a while.

My wife and I just finished watching "The Incredibles"

WOW!!!

The sound effects in that movie are "incredible!" There were 4 or 5 times I looked at my wife and said "That was some "incredible" bass!" The whole soundtrack was "incredible" with great Left/Right and Front/Back pans. Immersion was as good or better than "Flight of the Phoenix"

It just keeps getting better and better.

The Incredibles
1st robot fight in the jungle (~38min in I believe)
Dash in the blast tunnel during liftoff

Black Hawk Down
Chapter 4 after the pilot says "$%&@!# Irene!"

LOTR: FOTR
Ring Drop

LOTR: ROTK
Oliphant Collision
Frodos Heartbeat

Master & Commander
Chapter 4.

Finding Nemo
My favorite bass in this movie is very short, it's towards the beginning when Marlin & Dory first meet Bruce. When he turns around and chomps... I love that one. I'd love to see a FR chart for that scene, I'm curious how low it really goes. It starts and stops so quick I can't really tell.

Has anybody else rented Elektra? Or are you afraid your wife might not like you watching Jennifer Garner in those sexy outfits. The sound track also kicks!

First off, ditto to all of the movies above. If you just want to show of the rumble potential, try the intro to Toy Story II (still one of my favs to demo the HT... for all ages).

One thing I like about Blade II is it has all types of bass in it: dance music, rap music, fighting/punching, explosions, gun shots, mood bass, etc. It really is a lot of fun to listen to and I like the movie a lot.

I'm surprised that no-one has mentioned these bad boys:

-Toy Story 2
The 1st chapter and also a definitive sub-killer scene, when the concrete tube falls off the truck. Lots of subs will cave in with this one.

-The Brotherhood of the wolves
Has some serious bass, at least when there's a fight scene.

-Ronin
The blast at traffic lights and a few moments later on the road...

Yorcci, where have you seen a DTS version of TS2? As far I know, there is only a DD version available.

The 'echo' scene (~Ch. 3) in House of Flying Daggers was pretty sweet. Did anyone else watch it?

After some searching, I must confess that I just imagined the whole thing

Anyway, I stand behind my words about the DD-soundtrack.

Nobody has mentioned Vertical Limit and I thought it had some great bass during both explosions and the resultant avalanches.

Other than this one, I agree with the rest, especially Flight of the Phoenix and Sky Captain. The best single subwoofer item for me is the giant robot footsteps in Sky Captain. That moment with good subwoofer and surround just seems to make those robots so real and big and just outside your house.

Remember: No matter where you go ... There you are!

CenterForAnts and others that have seen Flight of the Phoenix you might have missed a really good quick audio part that I have now on my demo disk. At the VERY end of the movie, after the credits have ended, one of the companies has there little ditty (like the THX logo) and it is of a plane sound panning from left to right, then quietly away in the surrounds from back right to back left. At about mid center/right (in bettwen the speakers) the bass that is created was quite awesome. Very powerful, and yet very quick (my personal favorite type of bass). Check it out sometime.

Also on Stars last night was HULK. That movie had crazy bass. Prettly much all throughout the scenes when he was in HULK form my house was shaking. One thing that had me concerned on a nonaudio note however, the movie seemed very VERY dark during the fight against the dogs, and again when he's fighting his father at the end. Almost too dark. Now I have my set Avia calibrated, but its been about 9months since I last calibrated. I bumped up the brightness and that let me see much more detail, but gave a washed out appearance. Anyone else have problems with this? Note: It was not completely dark in my living room, but it was close...

You generally don't want to mess with Brightness once set. You might need to adjust Gamma, though. What type of TV? rear projection? Bulbs tend to dim over time, but it sounds as if your're still within the first year?

OTOH, maybe the director was going for the Doom effect.

Bout a year and a half and after the first 3-4hours of watching reduced the contrast and brightness with Avia so it should not be dying yet. I am getting ready to go through the whole electronic, manual focus ordeal, so everything will be recalibrated if I don't die or screw up to badly. anyone go and play that final few seconds of Flight of the Phoenix yet?

Titan AE. This one can't get mentioned enough. You HAVE to buy this one. I cue up chapter 16 and ride my couch around the living room (Velodyne VRP 1200).

not in the genre you suggest, but my kids were watching monsters, inc the other day and my wife and i thought an F-16 had buzzed the house. it was scary, for sure. a couple of scenes are epic in terms of sound spectrum: an explosion of a contaimnated sock and a scene where helicopters, etc are descending on the city.

I would recommend TopGun as a great 6.1 DTS movie. Go right to the last dogfight scene with the russian jets. Great surround sound and bass..
