I'm complaining more about the fact that it's pirated in the first place.

Posting of my experience of a re-discovery of a great film.
I just wanted to quickly post about a movie I re-discovered last night: V for Vendetta.
I have recently, in the last 4 months, upgraded my 5.1 from a HTiB. So last night I decided to sit down and watch V for Vendetta as it is just a spectacular film IMO. Next thing I know, The walls are shaking, the sound is louder and clearer than I and just plain amazing. I even had to turn it down where as in the past I often had to turn it up. The bass is loud amazing, and wall shaking without a doubt. There are some scenes that it just a bit overused. But I can tell you one thing, I had a nice Sh*t-eating grin after watching it last night.
I don't think the neighbors had the same though.

Had the opposite experience. I found almost no bass in this movie. The handful of scenes that did have bass were mixed very low. (Also found the plot to be ham-fisted political drivel masquerading as a movie, which I could have sort of forgiven had the sound and action lived up, but they didn't.)

This isn't a movie, but it is still pretty awesome. Left 4 Dead explosion waterfalls. Lots of stuff below 10hz which is why I think it's pretty cool.

I just watched Slumdog Millionaire. I realize the movie has been out on blu-ray for 6 months or so, but the bass was very well done, IMHO. I performed a search, and this movie has only been mentioned a few times in this thread. It believe it deserves to be mentioned again.

This is a very good movie. It definitely deserved the Academy award for Best Picture.

I would give it 4 or 4.5 stars based on the bass alone. Being a great movie is just icing on the cake!

Glad you mentioned this. I had completely forgotten about this film and never got around to seeing it.

Few good bass scenes in this film, but check that last chart where you can see that short 12-30hz rumbling bass sweeps. Bottom one is dd and upper one is dts-es, both are measured same mv level, but dts one have a lot more energy, but then i noticed that dts version sounds distorded in surrounds in that scene and dd version is completely free of that distortion in surrounds. Anyone else noticed that too or would like to check version what owns?

I agree. The low-end in SW2 is pretty impressive, but other than the opening scene, not too much below 20-25Hz. Lots of sound in the 30-80Hz range, esp the lightsabers that make your chest and pant legs vibrate as they swing by...good stuff, would like to see a blu-ray someday...

As far as Transformers 2 not having much below 30Hz, that depends a lot on where the film was mixed, and what they had to monitor with. Most mixing stages cannot monitor stuff below 20Hz, and really can't do much below 30Hz, same as most movie theaters. They may have limited the amount of below 30Hz content with that in mind....typical exhibition venue playback capabilities.

One exception I can think of is the Todd-AO soundstage where BlackHawk Down was mixed, they trucked in 22 BagEnd subs to monitor the low end.....that's why the 7Hz content is so strong in that mix in the "Irene" scene....it's meant to to be there, and was monitored by the sound guys.

Something else to think about: On most mixing stages (like most theaters), the front and surround channels are usually high-passed around 40Hz (to prevent damage to the speakers, usually vented boxes tuned to around 40Hz), so if there is some extreme LF content there, the mixer cannot hear it, nor can the theater audience. If that low freq info stays on the track during DVD/Blu-Ray prduction, it is being reproduced by our subs due to bass management on our receivers....when it was never heard by the mixer...I wonder how often that happens.

I am curious if anyone else was impressed with some of the lows in Cranks 2. I would love to see some waterfalls for it. Mostly when the two girls are in the back of the cop car, as Amy Smart says "do me", and also some of the parts when Chevs heart slows down towards the end.
I know my dual Fi 18 IB belted out some pressure, not sound so much as waves. I would guess sub 15hz. Would love to see it plotted. Entertaining flick for a boobs, guns, and blood. Just glad the wife and the kid were out of the house long enough for me to, pardon the pun, crank it up. Wow can't believe I just typed that.

I just finished watching Transformers 2 (DTS Core). It was incredible.

Transformers 2 is definitely a 5 star bass movie... easy. I was hitting 120+ dBs constantly throughout the last 45 minutes or so of the movie. The battle scenes were totally awesome. PQ and SQ was great. Waves and waves of bass. Not one-note bass either.

This Transformers movie is leaps and bounds better in the sound department than the original.

just finished watching revenge of the fallen. And ive got to say, the last 45 minutes or so of that was ridiculous on my new epik sentinel, i think that the helicopter flyover when they think sams dead was some of the loudest bass ive heard, and when the B1 dropped its bombs, i think that was some of the lowest. good stuff, cant wait to buy this one on blu ray!

holy crap i couldn't agree more. I watched this last week and i was in awe at the amount of bass in the last 45 mins of this movie, it gave my epik castle a thorough workout, especially the B1 scene where it dropped numerous bombs. Definately worth buying this on blu ray as that scene alone is great demo material.

the differences would be subtle at best, mostly on the higher frequencies/surround not much at all on the low end.

the dts core would be the same, the only thing that will be better on the blu ray will be the lossless audio, and even thats iffy accoring to DBT's

Land of the Lost is a minimum of 4 stars(bass of course). I would like to see some waterfalls of the T-rex. There is one scene when he approaches(When marshall confronts grumpy) and there is nothing but a tingling feeling of the hairs on your arms and legs, it must be deep. This had great sound quality overall.
