OK.. enough excitement. Time to get on the "The Pacific" run. biggrin.gif

Oh, I forgot to add. Kate is just super hot!!

Well as I mentioned it is B-Movie IMO and may have went straight to DVD/BD etc. I would not go out and spend my paycheck on it.. biggrin.gif


Looks like you get a Thanks for "The Colony" and while I agree its a b flick with ok PQ the soundtrack is first rate and had a few places of good strong ELF and worthy of graphing consideration (hint hint) I look forward to checking out a few more of the previews. Oh and did you notice on the opening credits the in association with 120db productions? I thought that was pretty cool! wink.gif

The first time Kate Beckinsale appears takes my breath away. Slams me right in the...um...PG-rated Thread, right??? eek.gif

Hey,
Thanks for the Thanks !! I missed the opening credits, but I'll pop the BD back in to check it out. I bought the BD from BestBuy when it was on sale for 4.96. I don't have any measuring equipment thus far but I can feel a good bass track with the subs that I have.
I say graph it when you get the chance.biggrin.gif

I just watched Total Recall again Fri night and she looks great there as well!


I would still be curious to see a graph of that opening explosion in Wolverine. Not the deepest digging scene (it certainly did not feel lacking at all either), but very effective sound design and really well done IMO.

There is no filtering.

I'm not sure how you can critique my work without listening to it, but I've been very happy with the reviews so far. smile.gif

Hey Film Mixer,
Can't wait to ck out Riddick! Congrats on The Ron Burgandy movie!

Jeff

I threw in Terminator Salvation last night and I forgot what a treat it is.

So which one of the 4* or better movies has the most bass? I am trying to find something that rumbles throughout the movie and not just a few hard hitting scenes. Thanks!

Underworld: Awakening - Selene's auto-pistols rip. The big bad wolf huffs and puffs, and shakes the pictures of the walls. This movie is a constant bass massaging.
Hot Fuzz - Too much bass, too many times, but it's intentional.

How's "Dead in Tombstone?" It doesn't look like a deep plot movie trailer. Does the action sound track effort make-up for this point? How are Danny Trejo and Mickey Rourke in this movie?

(my wife is going be watching with me and for the purpose of entertainment, she's willing to forgive a lot)

Watched yesterday. Good bass, movie not so much. Danny Trejo isn't any better than usual. Mickey Rourke apparently brought his own clothes from home.

1st Tron Legacy pounds for most of the film not just effects either as its got a killer Daft Punk mix going on throughout.

Eq 2nd Olympus Has Fallen Good film, solid bass all the way:Hellboy2 action aplenty:The Incredible Hulk "Hulk Smash!"biggrin.gif

DiT is a guys movie to be honest, so I would lean toward watching something else with the wife. I thought DiT was a lot of fun if the mood strikes for this type of film, but like any movie, it's subjective. Trejo and Rourke were great in it, but I like both actors. Mickey is the devil, how could it be bad? biggrin.gif Even though I enjoyed it, rent first as it's not everyones cup of tea.

Thanks for the mini-review.
post #12980 of 16207
For those who requested it, here's the graph of the Hiroshima Nuke Explosion at the beginning of The Wolverine (Unleashed Extended Edition):



Really not a bad scene. Though it's centered around 30Hz, it's long and fairly demanding.
post #12981 of 16207
yeah thought it didn't dig very deep...was starting to get concerned my subs couldn't handle it hahah

but they can handle OHF so this is a cakewalk wink.gif
post #12982 of 16207
That's deep!
post #12983 of 16207
Thanks Nube! I was wanting to see that one.

Thank you for this. Way too many over-compressed tracks out lately.

I dunno what you guys are watching, but I suggest you read what I wrote yesterday about opinionated comparisons of movies from adulterated perspectives. wink.gif
I agree with your opinion on personal EQ choices people make that deviate from the mix. But each new movie that comes out has levels all over the place including filtering with no real rhyme or reason and clipping and up and down levels. If they can't follow standards when mixing on a calibrated daily audio station than where does that leave us? Granted most is artistic deviation with directors barking behind the mixer saying turn that up louder or softer. But with all that some of us won't EQ flat cause it may work on one mix but sound anemic on others. Standards are rarely followed as they should be as you know. Go to a fine commercial cinema and break out a DCI standards hand book and hardly anything is to spec. Dim image, poor sight lines, surrounds too hot or low, 3d filter left down for a 2d show, framed wrong, stage speakers distorting and sounding too loud with the volume at 4.5 on the Dolby processor when 7 is reference and that's right after the Dolby guy EQd the room. Or to have the presentation be mind blowing with amazing dynamic sound only for the BD to come out filtered and sounding nothing like the commercial DCI track. Really with all the variables in exhibition can we all even judge a movie at the megaplex not knowing the set up and EQ exactly? Than we have our setups at home that we set up and tune at the mercy of our knowledge, equipment quality( and our personal budgets) and all of our unique acoustics in our rooms. Lotta dots to line up straight when the line may be curved to begin with.

I hear you tho. Pertaining to the data you find and publish on Data Bass if we all EQd flat we would definilty match up closer to your findings more often, which I'm very thankful for all the hard work you put into them and I think you do us a wonderful service. I just think there's a lot of variation coming out of the mixing boards in Hollyweird. Your findings show us that as well.

Reddig......

There is, however, almost no variation in the consistency of standard turnings and SPL references on the dubbing stages.

So while some mixers may mix louder than others, or use more compression, etc... The conditions where the tracks are created are highly controlled and in most cases fairly predictable and consistent.

Where we have failed is in a consistent way to let consumers know whether they are hearing a theatrical print master or one redone for home venues.

The Dolby encoder, for example, will compensate for the surrounds level difference when the metadata is set to indicate a theatrical master.

In addition most authoring companies rarely bother doing a true dialog norm measurement, which further gets us away from reference on some processors.

I watch everything at home within 4 db of what I know to be reference, which would be attributable in 99% of cases to dial norm or theatrical vs near field.

I'm really lucky this time of year because I have almost all of the films being considered for awards on either BR or DVD. The Academy rules require the audio tracks to be the theatrical print master. So it's easy to set it and forget it and just to check the DN and compensate.

It's the only fair way to compare the works at home, and makes it very easy to hear some of the differences between mixers and film makers.

I wish it were as easy for consumers on a consistent basis.

We're constantly working on it.

The bass is so strong with just a 3 dBs boost from it, damn. I know I have to tweak it but I am running a cheap Sony AVR and run a flat calibration for the first time ever, except I have a peak at 11-12 hz.

I thought you switched to that Sherbourn AVR?

While I may not nominate any scenes for a bass demo disc a few had my Submersives flexing. I do run a house curve though.

Yes! Now that is how gun shots should sound! And the SL steps are ridiculous!

The original three breasted total recall?

Also kt agree with Luke Kamp. I usually watch at -18 which is as loud as you can stand it in my small untreated room. Elysium I watched at -10...
post #12988 of 16207
Well, I guess I'll just put myself down as totally hosed. confused.gif

Being your run of the mill, mooch, certified, incompetent layperson, all I can do is put together a worthy system, dial everything in and pray to the audio gods and hope they'll smile on our humble (well, some of the time) existence of a Home Theater system.

...biggrin.gif

(so where does all the above, leave the Home Theater person with subwoofers EQ'd flat, no house curve or boost and sound, very reference capable)

Any graph for OHF ! is it better than Wolverine? I thought Wolverine Nuclear Blast was the best :)
