I find the second option hard to beleive since I run dual SVS PB13 ultra in a room that is recommended for one only and only 1.5db over Audessey recomendation and run a Outlaw 7700 for power amp.

I only watch one movie a week due to time restriction, so I just let it play and do not have time to experement.

Just curious if any else had the same result.

Thanks

Ray

I believe that was part of the sound design.

Maybe it was a second viewing of the overall content, but IMO the Extended Edition at home was a better experience than the cut in-theater. I gave the latter a 6-7, where the former gets an 8-8.5 from me...felt much more complete.

The bluray.com review mentions this in the audio portion of the review. I have not seen the disc yet, but it sounds like it is just the way the mix/sound design was done for this particular moment/scene.

maybe the film maker beleive a nuklear explosion should sound like this, a pause for the sound going over the speed of sound.

Thanks for the replies.

Great review as usual Ralph. I've seen all of the X-Men movies, but seeing James Mangold hired on as the director piqued my interest. I recommend that people see "Cop Land" which Mangold wrote an directed. It has a great character actors and the story is pretty good as well.

Really enjoyed the Extended cut of this movie. Watched the Theatrical cut last week and wasn't impressed. That cut seemed chopped and didn't flow for me. Just hope they find a way in the sequel or in the X-Men series to give him back what he lost in the ending battle scene. His "natural gift" just seems to make him look out of character.

Just finished watching the extended cut of "The Wolverine" in 2D and found it to be entertaining. From my point of view, Ralph's scores for audio and video were right on the money. I'll be watching this one again in 3D within the next few days and probably in 2D again before the month is out.

Thanks for reviewing the film for us, Ralph! cool.gif

having seen the pg-13 version and not the unrated version i thought this movie was very weak compared to other xmen movies but much better than origins. The only good thing about this movie was the scene after the credits in which prof x and magneto meet up with mr claws, setting the stage for xmen dofp.

I haven't been this undecided on a film in years...definitely first world problem I have here, but a problem nonetheless...

I've never been a HUGE fan of XMen, but I have enjoyed the films more than I've not enjoyed them...but is this one good enough to move ahead of some of my other titles that are awaiting my attention? I just don't know...

Maybe I'll just flip a coin

Thanks for the review Ralph, I'm not the biggest fan of the X-Men but I did enjoy the last one and also this one, The Wolverine. A somewhat off topic question you might have an answer for. My set-up is 5.1 but if I choose the 7.1 DTS-MA would that change / spoil the audio experience? Would a real difference be heard?

Greetings,

With a 5.1 channel setup any of the elements mixed to the additional rear channels of the 7.1 channel soundtrack will be down mixed to the surrounds. In other words you won't see a benefit but I don't see it spoiling or detracting from the experience.

Thank you Ralph for your speedy reply. I also want to thank you for the great job you do on the movie / bluray content reviews, you are a true fan of films and it shows. We share some of the same equipment, I have a Panny 310 & Oppo 83 both still going strong pusing them thru an aging and often very hot, even with a fan, Onkyo 805. They don't make them like they used to, not even Onyko. Also our locations are less than 50 miles apart. Thanks again.
