Im surprised but i hadn't even heard of Sunshine until you guys mentioned it on here. Maybe its my fault for skipping previews and not going to the theater anymore. How old is this movie cant be too old right?

I watched Mr and Mrs Smith on the computer last night and was taken by surprise on how much low end stuff there was......I see that movie was rated pretty highly on this thread.

I may have to pick this one up on BD. Anyone else have this?

I hope so. There is a waterfall floating around here somewhere that looked promising. For Transformers I got the Metal Decepticon case 2 disk set. It sounds very good. My room still shakes on certain points. I just hope the DVD translates into some great bass.

It ain't easy being green.

I use transformers as demo material, love the 20-50 hz bass in it. Wolverine had some good bass. I liked the movie as I liked all the X-men movies.

Star wars: the clone wars do have some really low and powerfull bass. I wonder why people not talk it much. I put some waterfalls soon to proof it.

Anyway i watched alexander too and there is some earth moving battle elephant bass.

If I ever go to a movie at the theater again... I am taking my dB meter.....hehe....

I really doubt they will play louder then I watch at home..

I am no longer able to watch a movie. I am monitoring a video display with regards to chroma, brightness, contrast and correct pulldown.

They should have the capability of playing louder, it just depends on who sets it up. The THX theater I went to for Wolverine finally had it turned up and it was awesome. To get the same midbass punch I needed dual 18 inch folded horn subs at home. It makes a huge difference.

WHich was where? I always try to sit dead center between the screen and the rear surround so I basically lose a good bit of the bass experience but the surround experience is slightly more important than the bass IMO when it comes to going to a commercial theater....some movies still KICK from the `dead zone' seats!

+1 on Star Wars Clone Wars having sick bass. I was really impressed with the LFE in this movie. The THX demo in the begining is the only reason i ever picked it up but i do not regret it at all. I myself am surpirsed its not on the list a solid 4 to 4.5 for SQ , output, and extension. Its so amzing how a good sub can make a movie seem so realistic. It makes my heart hurt for those who dont have one lol.

Also finally finished Miracle at St Anna. Highly reccommend the flick but not for LFE, its just a plain good movie IMO. Its got some parts but couldnt hold a candle to anything on the list.

And a request from anyone who can honor it. I would like to see waterfall for the opening car crash scene in Shoot em Up. Its not really low i dont think but its super loud im just wondering what freq it is. Anywho its one of my favorite LFE scenes dont know why but i just like it.

Up here in Wichita, Ks we have 2 real nice warrens with THX theaters that are awesome. I always sit 3/4 of the way up and smack dab in the middle of the screen to get the best of both worlds(always 30-45 min early so i get my seats lol). SB where in OK are you by tulsa, OKC, or neither?

OK, but the Wichita Warrens ARE not 100% THX certified (all screens)in WIchita(ask Bill Warren or check the site). THe new one in OKC/Moore is the only one (and still the ONLY multiplex in the US) that has ALL THX cert screens.
Love the fact that I can be in any theater there and it's the same as the Grand..

SORRY Guys even I get off topic!LOL!

My bad, My cinema only has 2 THX theaters, I was just saying that I saw it in a THX theater which are usually calibrated correctly.

I'd be happy to find ANY THX screens in my area (Brooklyn, NY.)

I looked at the theater directory on the THX Web site, then called a few on the phone to make sure their THX was on. I struck out three times in this regard and gave up.

Is there a surefire way to find a THX-certified cinema?

What pisses me off is that I live just north of Dallas, yet the Oklahoma THX theaters are still the closest ones to me
How do we encourage THX to spread to other areas that it's not. write to the local theaters & complain? There are some large local Cinemark theaters here, but none have THX setups, and in my opinion, are lacking in subwoofage. We are going as a group of 15 or more guys to see Star Trek next week at an IMAX theater in Dallas. I hope it's got a decent sound system!

NW OKC metro area..they are in the planning stages for a north OKC Warren with FOUR Grande theaters....would have to compete with the IMAX Theater being built....too fun!
Hard to believe there are so few THX cert. theaters in the U.S...blessed to live near a 100% one!

Hi,

I am looking for trailers in HD and Dolby Digital sound especially the Transformers 2 trailer with this monster bass. Is there a way to download it anywhere?
The new Terminator trailer with Christian Bale comes also with a lot of bass!! I found it on the Quarantine Bluray.

The best HD trailer site by far:

Not sure if they're in DD though.
