No. Live action shaky/ first person cam style.

I'm assuming Interstellar has garnered a high spot on this list?

AVSForum Blu-ray Spotlight: Ralph's picks for Room Shaking Bass

Just finished watching it, the movie itself wasn't too bad I actually enjoyed. If they actually spent a bit of time doing it right it could of been fantastic !!
The audio was well used but I found it a bit on the hot mix when it came to the fronts and surrounds. I usually play at -4db for DTS HD Ma tracks and 0db for PCM etc. this track I had to go down to -8db. The lfe was good at -8db but at-4db the fronts and surrounds it was too loud ( I couldn't go there ). Overall I enjoyed it

Nice to hear someone else enjoyed that movie. I played the games a lot in high school (namely the original Halo and Halo 2) so i really liked it. They just released another one called Nightfall. I'll have to check it out.

I personally thought Nightfall was not as impressive bass wise as the first. The bass that is there is good, but it's more spread out instead of a nice 30 minute onslaught at the end lime part one which I preferred. Curious what you think though when you watch.

Ralph/others....Monsters Dark Continent is worth a spin for bass/audio if you have not seen it!

Was Nightfall better than the first one movie wise? Or is it pretty much the same?

It might be a little better, but overall I thought both were terrible. It's very subjective though, so rent and see what you think.
