Thanks for sharing that info FilmMixer.....that is really cool
I expected this one to be great going off the DVD track which has always been one of my favorites, but at the same time I was thinking well it is 10 years old now and I wonder if it can keep up with some of these modern tracks? I have not watched/listened to this movie all the way through in a few years and there have been some amazing tracks in that time. Well for my money it not only keeps up but beats out most of them to some degree. Definitely hangs with the reference list IMO
The other thing is this is one of my favorite films and to get such a great A/V treatment on BR is a real treat.

I think you should be very pleased with Fight Club. Report back after you watch it
As for Terminator Salvation, I am doing one of my rare blind buys on that one since I have enjoyed all 3 previous Terminator films and it sounds like the audio should be a blast from early reports

I know some have found that to be the case on this one and a few have reported compression as well which I still need to check out as I did not notice it the few times I have watched this one. As for the bass, I thought it was perfect, BUT this was running my subs EQd flat and NOT hot at all. I think I made note in my review that if you have any peaks in the lower end and/or are running your sub hot that the bass would sound bloated. Not saying that is the case for you since I dont know how you have your equip setup and even if you have everything flat/EQd/not running hot you might still here it the same way, but I think this one will reward those with an EQd sub and you definitely dont need to run it hot!
