I thought so too. The bass was great in this movie. If you don't mind me asking what sub are you using.

Bought Flight Of The Phoenix the other day on BD and had a chance to watch it today....

Holy crap!!!! Easily a 5-star LFE movie just based on the Plane Barrel Roll alone. I was hitting 116dB+ during the barrel roll, probably closer to 120dB with RS SPL Meter corrections.

This barrel roll scene kicks the crap out of the barrel roll scene in Transformers, it's really no contest. Definitely one of my favorite LFE moments ever! I don't understand why Transformers is rated 4-stars for LFE to be honest.. District 9 and Sin City both have better LFE than Transformers imho, let alone many others that seem to go unmentioned in this thread.

We NEED more movies mixed like these LFE beasts WOTW, FOTP, Cloverfield etc. So many movies could be that much more enjoyable!

Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

Quick shot of my gear/theater.

Bori, my subs are a pair of the Danley DTS-10's. My mains are the Klipsch THX Ultra2's

XTC, I just experienced F of the P a few weeks ago myself! Pretty amazing stuff!

My taste is really for the tight, fast, hard hitting base instead of the extended rolling base. Like the quick blasts from guns, punches, etc.

Transformers is a good midbass movie. FOTP plane crash scene is one of the best for bass and the best pressurization scene. I love how the room instantly pressurizes and lasts for a while.

Two A7S-450. I will check my crossover settings again, but the Pioneer SC-05 only allows 50 or 80 hz. I think 60-80hz might be the problem, but I know 50 is too low. The ED eQ.2 I have gives me some additional play, though, I can try to dial that range down again.

Agreed on FotP.........amazing!

If anything, I am actually a bit surprised Transformers is only a 4 star bass film. The last ~45 minutes is just loaded with fantastic mid-bass type stuff..........from the 1:42-2:12 mark is 30 minutes of the best HT audio there is IMO.

I do agree though that we need more WotW, FotP, Cloverfields, TIH, etc.......

What about the bass in Pulse?? I am pretty sure the neighbors could feel the bass. This is only a DVD Dolby Digital 5.1, Bluray come out in September.

Bluevette, I have "Pulse" on HD-DVD and agree the bass in that movie is crazy insane, I mean for the computer entry scene, it actually felt like my room was breathing with the intesne pressure.

Rented Crazies and this weekend will check that out.

BTW have five subs in my main HT room. SVS BP12 NSD/2, dual DefTech SC 1's, Prosub 1000 (center channel MBM use only) and a DT Prosub 800 (rear channel MBM)

Are they re-releasing it? You can get used copies here, or pre-order the new one here.

Still, I'll agree the dolby digital is crazy impressive.

Saw it tonight - I'm adding it to my demo list and calling it a five star. Gave the tapped horn a lot to play with. The minotaur roar alone made my couch shiver in fear, never mind the fight with the hydra

Just watched The New Daughter tonight. Pretty decent movie, I enjoyed it and it had some decent bass moments as well but there's a scene at the last ~20 mins of the movie that sounds like a 25-35hz rumble that seemed to last for few minutes (not seconds) that sounded/felt impressive.

Heh - I didn't have access to the movie weeks ago. Small town

For me, the fun part wasn't just all the loud subsonic stuff. There was one part during the hydra fight where the horn cut loose out of nowhere with some serious midbass output I felt in my chest like a bad case of heartburn. Had the SPL meter on for some of that scene, and I saw 112dB peaks at my normal listening volume. Usually, the horn stays below 108 at that listening level.

Anyway, that's why I'm giving it five stars, even though the movie itself isn't wall to wall LFE like some other fivers I have.

Lightning Thief was great suggestion. It's got fantastic sound overall with really great bass is several parts. It's the best movie for bass that I've run across in quite a while. All bass freaks need to see this movie.

Thank you Mike, I sincerely value your opinion in these matters, and am quite happy to hear your assessment of this movie's audio. I'll be renting this asap and let all know my take on it too.

Just watched Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Blu-ray.

I'm not quite sure how to put it into words. Watched it at -4 below reference. I'm still recovering from the experience.

Calling this demo quality would be the understatement of the year. This movie an all out assault on your aural senses. And the LFE is pure insanity.

If you watched this movie first and then followed it by watching say something like T2 Salvation or 9....You would laugh.

I want the autograph of the supervising sound editor and designer.

I agree that Percy Jackson has some great bass. It was very surprising to say the least. The funny thing is I watched it from a download on the PS3 which was only 2 channel remixed by Prologic 2 for 5.1 which usually results in no bass. Even with this format my room was shaking. Can't wait to rent it on bluray and watch it at reference level.

On a side note The Last Airbender had powerful bass at the theater so maybe this could be a good one as well.
