My favorite scene in cloverfield is when the bridge crashes down. There's this low end rumble that shakes the ground, love it.

Just finished All is lost and disappointed as it has one or two scenes with some bass. Not my type of movie also. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
One actor movie and he says a few words for the entire movie

I personally thought the film had great sound design overall!

Soundworkscollection has a piece on it

That is my favorite scene, there's a M109 and a AT4 going off in that scene. Really like the "height" effects in that scene. Also really like the sound of the M109 driving by the camera.

The Hunger Games - Catching Fire DD 5.1:



No/very little ULF, but still a very enjoyable mix IMO.

+1, Also for me this is the only film that I really cared for the shaky camera effect as for some reason it works here, all others I didn't even bother watching, between it and the legendary audio I feel is a unique movie experience wink.gif

Same. The bass in this one is excellent and is one of my top ten bass favorites. A sorts of crazy loud and deep. Definitely a sound mix to match the roller coaster ride that the movie is.

Hell yeah, that's my favorite part too.

Damn. You guys are making me want to watch Cloverfield again. Haven't watched it in a while....


Now I have to watch it on this. eek.gif

Saw Ender's Game.  Great soundtrack!  And I also liked the movie as well.  The books, from my childhood, are great as well.  And apparently there are a whole ton more in the same universe

After you do, tell me what you think about that scene!

Btw you going to Ivans?

I've noticed the Movie Bass list has been updated. To my surprise, the Movie (The Conjuring) is only a 3.5 star ???? I thought that movie hit real hard on the Blu Ray disc edition.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I think I was just having a sensitive day - partly because I was watching it with a (female) friend and I'm always aware that I probably listen a little louder than such delicate creatures would like tongue.gif and a BD dynamic range is always greater than watching the TV, for example, and partly because (IIRC) the downstairs neighbours might have been in, and I always try to temper my listening volumes when they are around 'just in case'. No complaints so far with my SVS but my DIY subs (when they are finally finished...) may be a different matter... biggrin.gif

I am hopeful that my noisefloor is pretty good - concrete block apartment construction, double glazing, thick loft insulation, concrete skim on the floor, underlay and carpet on top, and what I think are solid wood internal doors - but I need to measure it when I get a laptop and mic! All I know is that when it's late at night and I've turned everything off, including the fishtank pump, I can sometimes hear my own heart beating in my ears, I think tongue.gif lol


If I ever make it to Japan, I would love to look you up! smile.gif

Do you mean the electronics noise floor rather than the effective noise floor in the room??

No problem being a noob! eek.gif

If you have a noisy floor, use screws to hold it down...stops the boards from rattling! wink.gif

Yes, electronic noise floor. Dead silent when no content is playing. smile.gif

Because it might be useful and particularly illustrative to some others reading this forum, here's the bulk of my post with minor edits in [brackets].

I think what's going on here [re: breaker popping] is that the OHF Washington Monument scene asks your amps, wiring, and breakers to pass a LARGE amount of current for a very long time, about 21 seconds as shown in this SL graph:



The scene finishes with a huge blast at the end. What's likely happening is your breaker is really warm and close to tripping to begin with in that scene, after passing so much current for so long, then the last four seconds and the final bit with content to DC pops it over the edge. The end of that scene asks your bass managed system (not running hot) to produce 124dB, and a large portion of it from dc-3Hz.

A more efficient amp (if that's truly what the IPR is) might work, although the end of that scene is a LOT to ask of an amp @ 2ohms, same for your wiring/breaker.

Take some heart, though - that's about the worst case scenario your system is ever going to see. There really aren't any scenes that compare with that one in terms of intensity & duration.

TIH Cop Car Smash is fun, but isn't close:



HTTYD's Dragon Crash is a powerful effect, but the duration isn't [comparable]:



WOTW's Plane Crash has deep content, for sure, but doesn't ask for the same sustained output:



[It was brought up that the Pulse Server Room scene might present an interesting comparison.]

[Pulse Server Room Scene isn't a] constant duration effect, and not [nearly] as intense:



In fact, it's hard to find another scene directly comparable to Olympus Has Fallen's Washington Monument scene.

However, I did find one:

The Last Airbender's Water Wall scene is the only thing that comes close:



It's [much] longer than OHF's WashMon scene (4x longer), but less intense and not as deep [especially in the content around and below 20Hz].

So, I think if you can get your settings & system dialed in to where you never clip or trip the breaker on the OHF WashMon scene, AND you have all the output you could ever want (even to show off), you'll never have to worry again.

Not even the legendary War of the Worlds - Pods Emerge scene can compare. It's really darn good, but it's missing the unrelenting, constant use of the full bandwidth for such a duration. Here's proof:

War of the Worlds - Pods Emerge scene, Death Ray sequence



And, War of the Worlds - Pods Emerge scene, ground cracking sequence


For your consideration, I present All Is Lost (1:24:27-1:25:22):



It's not the OHF Washington Monument scene, but it's still quite long, loud, and very deep.

For comparison, Ender's Game - Rocket Launch scene (1:05:25-1:05:36). It's not that great, by contrast - too short, and no deep content, but it is pretty loud and (purposely) clipped!

I don't care how someone wishes to write the narrative, all I see is everything that our system won't play in an authoritative way. I know, I'm missing, what, 0.5% of tracked material? But graphs like this do highlight what's not being reproduced.

That's what I find interesting. I watched the movie, and it didn't register to me as a great bass flick. By the numbers, it's pretty potent. But when there was some mystery around which movies Nube was referring to, All Is Lost never crossed my mind.

As a side note, the DTS intro for Ender's Game was fantastic...

Thanks for the recommendation. Being a simple mind, I'm good as I realize that REW has shown me, anything below 11Hz, is pretty much going be lost.

...frown.gif

With the wife out of the house for a few days, I get to watch some bass heavy movies with bad scrips. Today's bad scripted, bass heavy movie will be "Getaway."

Cool. Not being Hugh Heftner, I can't enjoy Selena because even at 21......she still looks like she's fifteen.

Actually, SpectrumLab is fun to play around with as compared with REW and such. You don't even have to buy anything as you already own everything that you need to use SL.
post #14125 of 16084
I thought getaway was a fantastic bass flick. That's it though . Movie sucked.IMO

After getting our latest system up and running, I'm a bit tech-no-toasted.

Before making this last step, I put about a year into budget subs, REW, upgrading subwoofer driver/radiators, adding Anti-Mode 8033S II and learning how to get the best out of an inexpensive subwoofer system with all the tools available. After getting this home schooled education, I stepped up, went the "Full Monte," beat the CC to death and picked up a XT32/SubEQ HT capable AVR, matching universal blu-ray player and two HO subwoofers. Now that the exercise is complete, I come here, look at all the pretty graphs and see what I can and can't have as I'd have to step-up to a pair of S2s to get to the next performance level. The point, thank-you for the invite but I'm going pass and just enjoy what we have.

Glad the wife is out of the house as she tends to remember any sucky movies we sit down with. Her all time fav to harass me about is "Zoolander." I'm sure there's somebody somewhere that thought that was just the best darn movie but it didn't work when I took the wife and in-laws to dinner and a movie.

I made up for it by taking them all to another dinner and movie night out and we saw "Bandits." All was forgiven. biggrin.gif

It's very similar to Elysium in the PvA, although a bit louder in level. Weren't you one of the people who thought Elysium was mediocre? Yeah, you were - I just searched this thread for your comments on it. Maybe there's a pattern emerging here...I think we argued about that very thing once before. Perhaps your hearing is just different on the ELF stuff, and/or you find the higher (30-50Hz) frequency effects more impressive? Or, maybe re-measuring your system is in order? I dunno, but it's an interesting discussion. smile.gif
