Top 5Hz-15Hz BluRey movies - Page 2

post #31 of 568
Ouch, you we're askin only 5-15hz movies, not sure then about the frighteners and darkness falls, but here is couple ads...cloverfield and the hurt locker for sure have those frequencies what you asked and don't forget windtalkers(dir cut), that's good bass movie too with 3-12hz subsonics in rifle shots.

Mostly that and any Speilberg movies but we all getz them on BR nowadays.

Oh and btw to super low LFE fans.... Pearl Harbor has some 1-10hz stuff in the middle of the Harbor action sequence. There is a part where Ben and Josh run up to a small station at the main airfield (this is before the "it's a dud!" *kaboom!* part) and there is a half dozen soliders firing M1 Garand's into the air. Each shot with the soliders and the Garand's has single digit bass.

aahhh... totally forgot about that part.

Ok...outta here. It's pizza time!

When I first got into HT, I got myself an Apex Sr. plate amp and built a 4th order for an Audiobahn 15", lived in a concrete and brick apartment, and Pear Harbor was amazing. Ive been surprised to never hear about it from you forum guys, but now I gotta add that to the list.
post #35 of 568
It's an audio favorite of mine but it doesn't really compete with some of the bass kings so it gets overshadowed easily. I very much use the Pearl Harbor sequence when I demo new gear and very much look forward to listening to it in 24bit PCM on my new speakers. Oh yeah!

Not that I know of. The DTS encode of the Haunting is a special case. Although, some movies do seem to have a little more to the LFE in the DTS version, WotW being one of them.

I ran WotW all the way through last night for only the second time. I'd only used the tripod emerging scene once or twice on the TH, and never at reference. I'd only watched the whole thing once back when I still used the LLT. Last night it was at reference. That was a blast. Still Randy Thom's best work as far as LFE

Yeah, Frighteners likely doesn't have a lot of below 10Hz in there. It came out in 1996. It has a respectable amount at 15Hz and up though.

Why isnt DTS the default audio playback on WOTWs? I was told a while back that there are several versions of Jurassic Park and the right one was needed for good bass. Seems theres several copies of every movie, you need to look for the dir cut, dts, discs with code ___ what a pain!
post #38 of 568
DTS was optional on most hardware before HDMI. I think I got my first DVD player with DTS passthrough somewhere around 2005, but I didn't have the decoding ability until much more recently.

Flight of the Phoenix - that's one that actually doesn't improve for me in the DTS track. LFE sounds the exact same in Dolby Digital.

You're definitely right about Jurassic Park. I rented it from netflix a while back just to check out the T-Rex scene. Very unimpressive. I had to double check to make make sure my sub amp was on. I believe it was the dolby 5.1 soundtrack.

Randy Thom's filmography reads like a list of 4.5 and 5 star bass movies. I'll suffer through some otherwise terrible movies just to check out his work.

Would you happen to know the time stamp for this scene right off hand?

1:35:16 seems to be the start of it. Once Costner goes into the hole. It goes on for a long time

So first off, if I get everything in BluRey, do I need to check versions? (DTS? dir cut?) or can I assume since it's BluRey it is good?
Second, IDK about you guys, but every single movie is different on my system, and, I am ALWAYS redlining... Every time I change movies I have to re-set the sub level. WOTWs is obviousely the lowest setting. I usually have to fast forward to a couple loud parts, start low, reply louder, replay louder, oh oop... back off a notch...start movie. Then still a "whoops" can happen.

Bingo.

The Haunting and The Frighteners aren't out on Blu-Ray yet to my knowledge, BTW. The Frighteners was supposed to be, but not sure if it is yet. No idea when they'll ever get to The Haunting.

Frighteners is no War of the Worlds by any means, but it takes you by surprise if you're not expecting it to hammer you with LFE

Randy must have had some decent 1996 subwoofage to mix that one with.

Eragon isn't an RT title. How to Train Your Dragon, War of the Worlds, Incredibles, and Percy Jackson are to name a few.

Edit - n/m, Eragon is in his IMDB page.

Not all his work has LFE out the wazoo. Coraline has almost nothing to talk about, and Osmosis Jones is pretty tame by his standards. But the audio is always excellent in general. The man knows his business.

Another suggestion - Pan's Labyrinth. Same sound designer as Hellboy II - Martin Hernandez. It too is a solid 4.5 star.

The T-rex scene in Jurassic Park was on a demo disc passed to me--I dont what version it was, but it was one of the more intense experiences on the disc. Could have just been gobs of higher bass, but it hit hard.

I was really sad to find out that my glass of water did not ripple one bit--especially since everything else in the room was!

You may have known this, I'm not sure; if you look at the the image names of the waterfall jpgs (I use "view image" in firefox) it tells you the movie and chapter. Not exactly a time stamp, but helpful.

The last airbender has some killer low stuff. As was mentioned, the water scene at the end of the movie is a couple of minutes of surging bass. Also, at the very beginning the sphere emergence sounds just like the pod emergence from WOTW. Very clean, very powerful. Classic RT.

Hmm, just checked my dir cut r2 dvd and didn't find anything special on those shots. I might look closer with spectrum lab.
post #58 of 568
Ah, yeah. There are a few parts that show guys shooting into the air. Its right when Ben and Josh have to pass by them to get inside to use the phone to call Earl. The guys shooting from just outside, you see them in two shots or so, that group of guys shooting had single digit bass for each shot. IIRC, I had seen it when graphing the theatrical cut on dvd with speclab.

HitchHiker's guide to the galaxy,When the earth explodes is 2hz,I believe.
