Just finished watching STID...I would put it up there with Oblivion. Another well balanced flick full of bass the entire movie.

I bought the blu-ray, but haven't had a chance to watch it yet (saw it once at the theater). It sure isn't getting much love here, though. I'm reserving judgement until I hear it myself.

Ok! as much as I loved STID for its "Loud clipping Factor" biggrin.gif Its in no way on the same level of "Oblivion" of course this is my personal view but headroom is headroom and Oblivion is up there with the all time greats and that's even in the LFE/ULF ( quality and quantity) as it has more twist and turns to make some subs trip over there own feet (if they had them) . But hey, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed STID as many here did not wink.gif

Now prepare yourself as your gonna have fun with what follows as the mob gathers there pitch forks eek.gifbiggrin.gif

Flame suit on:

I know this isn't the place for subjective comments on movies, and I know I might be burned at the stake for saying this... But I just have to admit it. Some teeny-tiny part of me is actually relieved that Pacific Rim is a giant disappointment in the bass department.

I love movies. And I love action movies. So my wife and I went to see PR in theaters. We hated it. Both of us barely stayed awake. Good special effects can only make up for so much. If the blu-ray really had knock-out, full range sound, I probably would have ended up buying it anyway just for a few demo scenes. By castrating the soundtrack, they've saved me 20$!

Good to see you on here!
Oh and a big Thank You for the PR comments - you just saved me a few $$'s.
I am a sucker for NASA/space stuff; so hope to catch "Gravity" at the Cinema this weekend - hopefully we will enjoy it more than some enjoyed PR biggrin.gif

After all said, I would still recommend you to at least rent Pacific Rim. It is a movie that was trying to bring to the big screen the experience of huge robots fighting monsters. Is not for everybody for sure, but it was a cool experience at least for me, daughter and son.......wink.gif
post #10873 of 16179
I preordered PR and I'm looking forward to it , it's up there with other two best movie theater experiences " Star Wars" ( I was young but that experience changed me forever tongue.gif) and the second being my first 6/ch DTS experience in a THX certified theater for "Star Trek Generations" when the Enterprise returns fire on the Klingon Bird of Prey! that phaser ripped down the right side of that huge theater and the impact when it hit the back wall was an OMG moment eek.gif and lead me to buy a Millennium stand alone DTS decoder. Now many years later enter Dolby Atmos and PR and I was once again envious of the theater ( till that day later when I watched Looper biggrin.gif )

Anyway my subs no one trick pony and this is a Bass in movie thread and all bass applies mid high and ULF ( when you get it) and that 20-30hz stuff ain't no deal breaker for me wink.gif
post #10874 of 16179
I also loved Pacific Rim in the theater and will be buying it on Blu Ray. I still want a Jaeger.smile.gif
post #10875 of 16179
I liked PR at IMAX, best sound experience ever at a cinema.
post #10876 of 16179
Found hope in another thread there's hope guys! however we may need a Jaeger! I'm hyped about this one and Atmos here I come biggrin.gif

enjoy smile.gif

Pacific Rim was incredible at my local cinema! They use old ElectroVoice dual 15 cabs with JBL horns and JBL 18s for subs and QSC amps and the rooms sound better than most megaplexes I've ever been too. Two of the rooms are shaped like giant trapezoids so side walls are not parallel and I believe that helps too. Can't wait for PR to come out I'm definitely buying.
post #10879 of 16179
Cool thing is currently Dolby has a tight leash on Atmos theaters, the newly built theater I viewed PR is breathtaking 87ft Imax and managed to rattle me, along with what surprised me pant chuffs. but that theater sounds like fun wink.gif
post #10880 of 16179
Never saw Pacific Rim in the theaters but just ordered it through Amazon, have 2 Triaxes coming so hopefully they should be able to handle it biggrin.gif
post #10881 of 16179
Just saw Gravity at IMAX. A lot of bumps and rumble going on and surrounds are pretty active too.

Me thinks they will.

Epic - I'm thinking three stars. Overall I found the mix to be absolutely fantastic, as usual for something Randy Thom worked on.

I can see why he and/or Lora Hirschberg might have dialed back the extreme LFE on this one... I mean, I don't expect to be blown out of my seat by the tapped horns when a bird hits the ground. There was enough in there to keep me happy.
post #10884 of 16179

I don't remember Epic having anything that wowed me in the lfe department. I think the only scene that had decent bass from what I remember is when those glasses/goggles were put on and slowed everything down.

 

Databass gave it 3 stars

Worst case scenario is you hate the film, but will be treated to what most feel is one of the finest A/V presentations on blu.

Has anyone else seen Kon Tiki? Not the best bass track out there or anything, but I thought the low end played a significant roll in this film and it seemed to dig fairly deep at times. Very well done I thought and a few scenes could be demo worthy IMO.

Toe I think your a little to modest on this one wink.gif Not sure if you noticed but Kon Tiki is a loud recording reference soundtrack with bass that around the 40min mark into the film locked onto my room with a sweep that vibrated through my concrete slab and pass 4 layers of carpet (two of which are thick carpet and pad) up to my head! And its not the only moment and due to how loud it was I refused to go pass -3 db, it was intense and unreal at times and made my wife yelp more than any prior flick. Guys we have unfiltered movies out there keep searching and find them as this is a ULF/LFE gem!

This is 5 star all day and graphs are needed please1 as I'm dying to know. I did make the mistake and had Dynamic EQ on with +2 hot on the sub which is completely unneeded but please err on the side of caution before doing reference levels cool.gif
