Love to find another on the same level or better. Could it be the Underworld Trilogy? I recall getting my first noise complaint at my last home playing Underworld 1 DVD on my less capable HT system.
Will buy this trilogy soon.
It's not the Underworld Trilogy. Cloverfield is the king until War of the Worlds hits. Also try any movie that's listed in the Reference category.The Last House on the Left(DTS-MA) - Tier 4
I don't know what the hell happened here. This is by far the worst sounding modern movie I've ever listened to on Blu-ray. I really don't even know how to describe it. Seriously.
LFE is ok at times, but the rest of the sound just completely sucks you out of the movie. I wish I had the DVD to compare, the BD has to have some sort of manufacturing error.
This one gets a vote from Tier 3 to Tier 4 because the audio was a distraction.Batman(TrueHD) - Tier 2
This one could go tier 3. It's not that dynamic, the LFE isn't that great. Dialog is clear with no issues like hisses or pops. It does have a bit of an ADR quality at times and many of the effects sound artificial. The score doesn't get enough respect, it doesn't sound as powerful as it should. The Prince songs sound pretty damn good though for whatever reason.Batman Returns(TrueHD) - Tier 1
I might be alone here, but this was great probably the best sounding of the 4 included in the anthology. The score sounds warm and robust. The effects are mostly convincing, LFE is appropriate. Not as ADR sounding as the first. Surround use is solid. Overall a mostly natural sounding presentation.Batman Forever(TrueHD) - Tier 2
This one has a real nasty ADR quality to it, and I thought the LFE was a little hot. Otherwise it's a standard action mix.Batman and Robin(TrueHD) - Tier 1
Another standard action mix. It doesn't have as big an issue with ADR and overcooked LFE that Forever has.
