master and commander--you've seen.
U-571--I really enjoyed it on my regular tv--loved it with my new system.
You mentioned LOTR trilogy--awesome.
If you liked hero you must watch "house of flying daggers", highly recommend
Nemo--surprising good bass, great movie
Saving Private Ryan--One of the absolute best movies and soundtracks
tears of the sun--if you can tolerate the constant bruce willis close up stares--its a good movie
Black Hawk Down--award winning sound, great true story
Behind enemy lines--some FX stuff, but not at all overdone.
The haunting has unbelievable bass, ok as a movie--doesn't totally suck
the Matrix trilogy--I haven't seen all 3, not really a fan but many people love them, good bass scenes
Star Wars trilogy--the new ones episode 1-3, I have seen all three, not a huge fan, but the originator of THX does know how to make a soundtrack that impresses
BladeII is supposed to have great bass, if you liked the first one it might be worth a shot
Apollo 13--good movie, not astounding bass--really only the take off scene and it is only ok
jurassic parks--3 and 1. The original is the best movie, the 3rd has better bass
Rundown--a movie I thought I would hate, but actually enjoyed--good sound, despite the Rock
The other end of the spectrum--War of the Worlds is probably the king of bass movies, but it does suck as a movie.
The absolute worst movies I have forced myself to stomach my way through--solely for the bass:
Godzilla (matthew broderick version)--unbelievably bad movie--can't believe they made it. It took three sittings to get through
Fantastic four--good sound, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE movie, fell asleep despite the shaking
Superman 2--I know tons of people love it, I barely made it through
Pearl harbor--really only one scene has good bass, the rest of the movie blows
Hellboy--probably the best on this list, but still bad--good bass though
and my #1 stinkfest movie with impressive bass....The Hulk. Holy S#@* what a peice of garbage that thing is. It is almost worth forcing yourself to sit through it just for the shear enjoyment of just how bad it is--It is so bad. That is the only thing making almost watchable--the fact that they actually made such a hunk of stinking dung. As much as I have tried I can't get through it. Still never seen every scene of it. Good bass and jennifer connelly--that is it.
Above all, enjoy the sound.
You gotta love the internet.
