TF3:

Greg Russell (FX) Gary Summers (DX) Jeff Haboush (MX).

Finishing up this week.
Russell and co. did a fantastic job for TF2.....used the entire LFE bandwidth to great effect, esp in the cinema.

Will have to make mental note to check out 'Safe' in September....

Thanks for the info,

LFE

The Incredible Hulk (2008) - Chapter 17 - "It Has to Be Me" - 01:32:00 - 01:32:49 for Hulk scream! or through 01:36:15 for beginning of fight and helicopter crash. The scream HAS to be on this disk IMO, if you do nothing else at least put that first 49 seconds of this scene on the LFE section! With the right ported subwoofer you feel the hulk's breath on your face!!! The scene goes on until 01:41:08, but the point is made by 01:36:15 and these individual demos are best kept short and sweet!

Titan AE - Chapter 16 - "In the Ice Ring" - 1:02:50 - 1:07:30 - Space Ships flying in between huge space 'iceburgs'. Lots of LFE. You don't really need this whole excert, but it's awesome to listen to on a good sub!

U-571 - Chapter 15 - "Depth Charged" - 01:17:00 - 01:20:37 - Depth Charge Scene Beginning - Plenty of Explosions, and I think the quieter middle section of this clip should be included to show dynamic contrast and build the scene!

Matrix Revolution - Chapter 26 - "A Truce" - 01:39:29 - 01:40:18 - I enjoy the LFE effect of the architects voice, it's an unusual effect.

Terminator 2 - Judgement Day - Chapter 57 - "Terminator Serves Notice" - 01:52:01 - 01:53:29 The minigun scene where the terminator shoots a bunch of cop cars and then uses a grenade launcher from the cyberdyne window --- Some of the best sound in any movie I've ever watched the grenade explosions while short are very satisfying --- gets better the louder you crank it! You'll think you are on a firing range! Another of my favorite scenes to demo and not just for LFE.

Indeed, À l'intérieur(inside) is crazy in lfe effects, but only in french dts or dolby..dubbed track is heavily filtered in low end. Also [rec]2 is great, lotsa bass in 20hz area and lower to single digits. I think i will put both to five star category.

Did you check ebay for titan a.e, there is many.

Thanks for the recommendations.

I have skyline coming tomorrow via netflix since my curiosity about the movie got the best of me the at least if the movie is mediocre hopefully the audio will blast.
post #159 of 16113
I hate to say it, but, the saying that Skyline is mediocre would actually be quite the compliment. It does have some good sound though.

What about the movie Inception? Where does it stand in the ratings? Or did I miss it?

Did forget that(and still many others), maybe 4 star max to me.

Just watched "Despicable Me" recently, not sure if it would make the list as a whole, but there are some scenes with some great LFE.

The scene where Gru is hanging from the ceiling of Victor's place and the shark sees him and tries to break through the glass. Not sure if it's super low freq bass but a really nice hit you in the chest impact bass.

Also the scene when the rocket takes off, that has some real nice low freq bass that you can feel and shakes the room.

Harry Potter 7 part 1 also has a really nice LFE soundtrack through out the movie.

Btw, great work on the list lfe man, it's about time a new updated one was made. Thanks!

Ah, sweet! Stickied!

Just finished watching The Mechanic. I thought it was very accurate with very nice LFE throughout the movie. Not only action scenes but music and effects to add drama. I think I have a new demo scene. I have to run it back a few times tomorrow when everybody is awake at demo levels. 4.5/5 stars for sure.

I picked up Independence Day on BluRay today for family movie night. A buddy brought the DVD over when I finished my IB last year and I couldn't hit the eject button fast enough. While much better than the DVD it still left me wanting on many scenes but it surprised me on others. Not bad for a 1996 film in both effects and sound? Maybe worth a rent or netflix bump on the priority list. 2/2.5 stars due to lack of consistency and quality of LFE. Anybody else catch this BluRay yet?
post #170 of 16113
I got more of a four star vibe from The Mechanic. Also vote four stars for I Am Number Four... was underwhelmed with the whole movie.
post #171 of 16113
Bought Godzilla (1998) today on blu-ray and to give you a quick idea of how its LFE compares with the blu-ray version of War Of The Worlds, well on Godzilla with my sub's knob at 1/4th of the way and the receiver's bass setting set a -10 db and subwoofer level at -6 db I could feel Godzilla's footsteps (around the 26 minute mark) near the market area before the city major's speech scene.

War Of The Worlds on the other hand with the sub's knob at the same level and the receiver's bass set at -10 and the subwoofer level at -15 db I felt way more bass with the Tripod's first assault than Godzilla's footsteps. War Of The Worlds is just that amazing!

I haven't watched Godzilla yet on blu-ray I only did a quick test, I'll watch it tomorrow and might post graphs later.

Looking at the list of 4.5 star and 4 star movies, I say it is a solid 4.5. The scene where he takes out his boss pressurized my whole house like few scenes have.

Unbreakable - DVD, DTS

The $3 DVD bin strikes again. This one got my attention early, and not because it's the last Shyamallama movie he did that I actually liked. My vote - 4 stars. It has the extension, it has the quality, but it doesn't have the quantity for any more than that. I do kind of wish I'd heard that blast of 10Hz, but the tapped horn can't reach that low.

As requested, I left the color palette in these. All waterfalls LFE track only, once again demuxed and split by Hypercube Transcoder.

Just saw skyline finally and agree with the great audio throughout, a lot of LFE that shook the room.

The movie actually wasn't as bad than what some ppl wrote but maybe it was bc I went in with very low expectations lol. Not much in terms of story but entertaining action. The audio definitely helped create the intensity.
post #175 of 16113
Anyone else here watched Xmen: First Class? Loved the movie but wasn't impressed by its LFE.
post #176 of 16113
neither was i impressed with the lfe especially when the sub and jet both crashed no rumble at all.

When I first watched the movie I thought whoever did the setup at the theater must have accidently put the subwoofer level at it's lowest possible setting. But I went to another theater and the LFE was even less!

The AMC theater in Indianapolis was rocking! It was also a digital presentation.

Godzilla (1998, Blu-Ray, DTS HD-Master Audio 5.1)

Here's the standouts in my opinion:

26:46 to 27:47 godzilla interrups major's speech


45:23 to 46:21 godzilla rises from underground


49:24 to 50:23 military pursues godzilla and fires sidewinder missiles


1:53:24 to 1:54:23 godzilla returns


1:55:21 to 1:56:20 godzilla chases their cab


I tried to note down every major LFE event in the movie, but I'm sure i missed a few:
4:47 to 5:45 godzilla attacks ship
18:45 to 19:44 godzilla pulls down a ship
19:45 to 20:26 ship rises and plane flies through thunderstorm
24:52 to 25:50 godzilla reaches New York
25:50 to 26:46 godzilla tears up the marketplace
26:46 to 27:47 godzilla interrups major's speech
28:47 to 29:45 Jason sees godzilla
29:45 to 30:42 Jason almost gets squashed
45:23 to 46:21 godzilla rises from underground
46:21 to 47;21 godzilla breath and starts walking towards fish pile
47:21 to 48:19 godzilla reaches fish pile
48;24 to 49:24 military assaults godzilla
49:24 to 50:23 military pursues godzilla and fires sidewinder missiles
51:23 to 52:21 military choppers assault godzilla
52:22 to 53:22 godzilla fights back
1:19:31 to 1:20:28 godzilla is found underground
1:22:09 to 1:23:07 godzilla approaching park trap
1:23:07 to 1:24:07 godzilla avoids trap military attacks
1:24:07 to 1:25:05 godzilla enters river navy prepares to attack
1:26:51 to 1:27:50 navy knocks out godzilla
1:51:36 to 1:52:34 they escape and military blows up msg
1:53:24 to 1:54:23 godzilla returns
1:54:23 to 1:55:21 godzilla tries to fit between two buildings and roars
1:55:21 to 1:56:20 godzilla chases their cab
1:56:20 to 1:57:19 chase continues
1:57:19 to 1:58:20 chase continues
2:0:58 to 2:01:56 cab in mouth
2:01:56 to 2:02:54 godzilla lured to the brooklyn bridge
2:02:54 to 2:03:53 fighter jets assault godzilla
2:03:53 to 2:04:51 godzilla collapses and whimpers

This movie hardly has anything for under 40 hz, but as you can see from my notes there's plenty of scenes with LFE. I think this movie is 3 to 3.5 stars.

Thanks for the analysis LetoAtreides82. I'd been wondering about Godzilla. I'm not sure if it has been released on blu-ray down here.
