The New Master List of BASS in Movies with Frequency Charts - Page 500

post #14971 of 16107
Re-watched Ender's Game last night with my new DIY sub
See my thread here
Help me convert my DEAD Velodyne HGS-18 to a DIY Sub

Now...that rocket launch really shook my house this time compared to the Velodyne.
Excellent tactical feedback now.
I am a happy camper.
Got this thing tuned really well for my room with the iNuke 3000DSP.
Now I wish I would have held off on the purchase of JTR S2.
That S2 added with this DIY will be fun.
DIY is quite easy if you already have the right enclosure

not much action "LFE" so to speak - but throughout the film - there is a foreboding score - which has organ in it - which gave my SVS quite a workout - subtle but no less impress deep deep bass

How was the movie itself?

It looked right up my alley...a little nuts. Thanks!

Prisoners measurements. Really not a bass movie.

As requested, I also measured the new horror movie, Evil Dead. I prolly won't ever watch it, but if you have, vote + comment on its bass execution and content.

I'm glad I went back for seconds on this as the 4star rated bass hear is some solid 20hz stuff that's for real, all I can say is wow! biggrin.gif

Yes indeed !!!
I thought Thor hit pretty hard. "Thor The Dark World" we went to the movies for this one and I was totally disappointed in the Bass dept. I think it could have been the actual Theater though. So yep, I'm looking forward to see how it sounds on Blu Ray. Won't be able to watch the new Thor for a couple of weeks as I have to send one of my woofer/drivers out for repair/replacement.mad.gif

late to the party again...but finally got a chance to watch "enders game" this afternoon


at the risk of rehashing what others have said before me...WOW

very nicely done...bass fit the movie perfectly and surely one of the top movies in that regard, which is impressive considering the last group i've watched consisted of "oblivion", elysium" "rush" "all is lost" and "captain phillips"....


fantastic run lately...excited about "gravity" coming tuesday...


oh yeah, as an aside...

i thought ender's nemesis was unique...a different spin but it worked well

Went to a used books and comics store. They had a pretty good selection of BD's. I got FOTP for 3 bucks. And Max Payne too. Never seen FOTP before. So gonna give it a run this afternoon. Wanna hear what the quad S2's do with this one.. smile.gif


Ok.. Just finished watching it. Just wanna say the bass was plain wicked. Another go demo disk to my list next to WOTW, TIH, and Oblivion.

Watched Ender's Game today pretty impressive too bad the bluray from Netfix had a lossy instead of a lossless soundtrack.

If you have a Pandora or Spotify account don't forget to check the soundtrack of this movie. Youtube is another option.

Really like the following tracks:

The Battle Room
Graduation Day
Final Test

Been excited for a while to watch Ender's Game based on some of the talk here. I finally got around to it last night...

 

From my ULF seat...meh. I was disappointed.

 

I've been so busy, haven't had any time to keep up with this thread fully, but read snippets that it was some unfiltered goodness. I was hoping for another OHF, Oblivian, or Elysium...not close, IMO.

 

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad like some other filtered movies...just not to the level of some of the more recent ULF greats.

Got to watch Carrie (2013) today. I am a Stephen King purist (he's the only author I will read) and knew I couldn't go into this movie comparing it to the original classic. I will just stick to the bass in the movie.

There wasn't much bass. However, there were tense moments where the bass did hit. Actually made me jump in one scene. First time that has happened in almost the year I have had my PC13-Ultra.

Overall, I liked the soundtrack on this. Marco Beltrami does some awesome work.
post #14986 of 16107
Ok.. Just finished watching FOTP for the first time. Crazy bass! Movie not bad at all too. Added to my " Worthy of Bass demo disk " list. WOTW, TIH, Oblivion, UnderWorld Awakening, and now FOTP. smile.gif

Entertained some friends last night with "Life of Pi" it was nice to look around the room and see them with their mouths open, their senses totally engaged and amazed by the sound and what was happening on screen. For me, the Shipwreck, the Tiger's roar, the Whale, the Storm, the Underwater scenes, all make Life of Pi one of my favorite movies ever. The visuals are simply amazing, I can stare at that sunset for hours
smile.gif
After reading suggestions on this and other threads, I recently started running my sub and cc +3db from MCACC settings and WoW! what a difference biggrin.gif so it was a new experience to me too smile.gif

Also got a chance to see "The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box" I'm still trying to figure out what the producers were trying to accomplish here confused.gif This genre is usually pretty dependable for sound and visuals, but this one is a total fail

Older... but I watched man with the iron fists last night.. had a good deal of bass. Some decent sweeps and some good low level stuff too.

Maybe its just me but I am streaming this movie on Mgo. Maybe that's why I have no bass at all. Movie sux so far. Glad I got this on a free rental.
post #14992 of 16107
Tons of bass for me. And very good movie. I thought. But I will never watch it again

Its something I'll have to revisit a few years down (once I forget biggrin.gif) the road and its only due to the superb ELF and soundmix which are worth it wink.gif

Just checked my Conquest and it was still standby. Dont know why but hopefully not the dreaded bad epik Amp.
post #14995 of 16107

That would definitely not put out bass. Hopefully it's an easy fix.
