Is a DVD ~> BR upgrade for Serenity worth it, audio-wise?

HTTYD belongs very high up there, but if it's a 5*, then Serenity is a no- brainer. Just my observations...........I love the ranking lists and am thankful for them and this thread. smile.gif
SERENITY is one of my favorite sci-fi films. You are 100% correct. It is a solid 5 on the bass chart. The entire film is loaded with lots of great scenes. Have not watched HTTYD in my theater yet. Saw it in the theater in IMAX but not at home yet.

Yes def.  the intro where the globe rumbles in is quite nice as well as when Simon stabbs the lance to put those scientists to sleep....

 

I highly enjoyed the Firefly prequel also but havent watched on BR or on my HT for that matter.  I watched it way back on Hulu before they sold out.

Not really but the overall sound is much improved along with the picture. Highly recommended!

Yes, and the LFE/Bass has much better definitions on the BD version

Yes, I have both versions wink.gif

If I see any of the others on clearance, I'll snatch em up.

Every title on that list IMHO is 5 star rated for deep powerful room shaking bass.

Bought btw dts dvd of the haunting some time ago and was little dissapointed that cold scene, i though there would be some strong 22hz bass but that hardly moved drivers at all, but then scene where that chick is pinned to bed and oven starts to mash those spikes and that ghost come back, very strong 20-25hz bass right there.eek.gifbiggrin.gif Noticed that dolby dvd have louder 40hz bass in one scene what dts dvd have, but dts dvd have so much better bass extension(maybe too hot even in level, there was not much headroom) and surround info.

I've watched Megamind. The LFE where the building collapsed is awesome.

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows - sounded like a 3.5-4 star movie to me.

Agreed, more like a 4 for me.

I could go along with either 3.5 or 4. There were plenty of LFE moments, to be sure, along with some excellent action in the surrounds as well.

I found it to be a solid 4 for me.

I know I'm starting a fight by writing this comment. A few post back fellow members wrote about the difference in bass between dvd and bluray for War of the Worlds. It sounds like the bass on the dvd is louder/fuller but bass on the bluray sounds tighter more accurate. Saving Private Ryan bd/dvd(dts) are recorded the same way. I've seen the graphs for War of the Worlds on this thread. According to the graphs the bass is lower on the bluray.

I have never compared WotW blu to DVD, but the Star Wars saga has varying bass levels, esp in Episode II. The DVD was hot, the Blu not. In Ep IV, the Blu has more bass, but it is all essentially the Falcon (as it should be).

I was just watching There Will Be Blood, the movie with Daniel Day Lewis. Overall not great and very few LFE scenes. But, there was one, about 20 minutes into the movie. He is talking to a couple and then it cuts to a scene of him drilling and hitting a gusher. Really low rumble starts and builds with what feels like lots of ultra low bass. It was pretty impressive, even if it was only a short scene.
post #4223 of 16129
The Fast and The Furious on Blu Ray... I'd give it 3.5-4. Pretty decent bass from racing scenes and it's jam packed with surround.

Let's not let ourselves get out of hand with willy-nilly ratings schemes. Consistency is best, so please consider that when coming up with your rating.

How can the new Sherlock Holmes be considered anywhere close to 80% as good as WOTW, Cloverfield, Tron, B:LA, etc.? 4 out of 5 stars on this scale? Not even close. It's not got the depth nor nearly the frequency. In fact, it sounds like the mix was purposely created several dB low in the LFE reproduction because it barely has anything going on.

Remember that audio memory is very, VERY short. Seriously, if you think it's that good, rewatch it, then immediately afterwards demo some of the major 5 star movies. It's not even close, and certainly not anywhere close to a 3.5 or a 4.

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows: 2.5 to 3 stars, at very best when compared to the 5 star list.

Yeah, I agree, I watch 5 star demos all the time so I never get wowed with new movies. The new underworld movie was the only one to say 5 stars or very close to it.

I will NOT apologize for being impressed with some of the LFE in Sherlock Holmes. Was it on the same level as WOTW, Cloverfiled, or Tron Legacy? No, but it wasn't as bad as you make it out to be. I firmly believe it is worthy of a 3.5 Star rating....that's MY opinion and I'm sticking to it.

For the record, I wouldn't be so condescending if I were you by referring to our ratings as "willy-nilly ratings schemes." I suggest you learn to use more tact and to respect the opinions of your fellow AVS members.

Having watched 'Clash of the Titans' and 'Wrath of the Titans' back-to-back over the weekend, I would move 'Clash' down to the low 4-star area (not as impressed as I originally thought) and 'Wrath' to a high 4 stars.

Cool, I thought Clash at good bass and Wrath being a bad movie needs something for me to watch it. I mean it was great action but the movie just skipped over to have a finish. I kept waiting for things to happen and all of a sudden the movie was over.
post #4229 of 16129
lol.
Yeah, the movie does move at hurried pace but the bass was nice enough, I thought, to keep you invested. Especially when Kronos makes an appearance or we hear his voice in some weird ghostly fashion, LFE was incredibly deep and shook my sitting area. Even Mr. Potts grades the lossless mix as reference quality. It's a really fun soundtrack. smile.gif

Thinking about picking up King Kong bluray-dvd-digital copy from Amazon. It is only 3.5 stars? Is it not that good? Anyone here has this copy? Are there a bluray, a dvd disc and a digital copy? Thanks.
