The New Master List of BASS in Movies with Frequency Charts - Page 3

Orphan has very little LFE, definitely one movie you'd want to avoid if you're demoing your subs:

Esther lights treehouse on fire:


Kate avoids collision:


Kate crashes into home:


Kate crashes unto Esther:


Kate and Esther battle it out on the frozen pond:


Kate dropkicks Esther:


That last image shows the hardest bass event in the movie, a nice 17hz dropkick to the face, but it only lasts about a second. This movie probably deserves 1 or 2 stars in the list.

Lots of content around 25-50hz. I would give this movie a 3.5 or 4, not sure...

I'd say maybe 3, 3.5 max.

I've seen some waterfall graphs for it - and I know it isn't heavy below 20 Hz - but how about a 3.5 star verdict?

It's heavy enough above 20Hz for me to vote 4.5. I'd go 5 if it had the extension to match.

I think I'd be ok with 3.5. I wasn't impressed. Randy Thom set the high bar for Harry Potter with Phoenix, and it's been downhill on rocket powered rollerskates from there ever since.

Same deal for The New Daughter. That one scene inside the hole is as LFE intensive as any five star, but you just have to sit through so much dull nothingness to get there...

Make that three stars for New Daughter.

Saw Thor tonight. I thought the bass was
Impressive, even in a theater. Should be a 5 star flick when it hits disc.

Watched The Rite tonight. The movie wasn't that great, but it had some crazy bass!

Jurassic park 3 needs to be in 4,5 category. Plane crash to dino fight is still awesome demo scene. Also first jurassic park in dts(corrected one)have impressive bass and is maybe 4 star bass movie.

Terminator 2 in dts is 4 star bass movie. It have stronger bass scenes than terminator salvation(imo), which is also 4 star.

Thank you all for you'r contributions.

Terminator salvation should be way less than 4. I used it first when I got my new set up and was so disappointed at the lack of bass. It should have been much stronger.

Has anyone seen daywatch or nightwatch? I need to rewatch since they are like Russian equivalent to the matrix series but way better and with vampires (not the crappy tween type lol).

I've seen both daywatch and nightwatch, both good little known action flicks I'll have to rewatch to check the bass on them n

But.....those movies have about as much in common with the Matrix as LIke Water for Choclate does, LOL

Haha just meant on the level of magnitude the trilogy is compared to the matrix since not sure how many have seen it. I can't wait for the last installment to be released. I am glad I bought both on blu ray as an impulse, I am hoping for some good bass as there is a lot of action.

If you have an array of 18's or a Thigpen Rotary then this is demo material for you guys. There is so much content below 20hz I wasn't able to plot all of it!

Watched never say never with my daughter. This movie has good bass when the movie kicks in.

Anyone see the Green Hornet yet on Bluray? I thought it was very weak in the LFE department.

Yeah, I agree. LFE would have added a lot to that movie!

Now that's just ridiculous... disappointed even more now lol.

Re-watched nightwatch yesterday and unfortunately not big bass. Probably due to limitation of the production at the time.

Time to figure out what to watch tonight.

I watched The Crazies the other night and was quite surprised with some of the lfe scenes! Especially the one where the woman goes out to check on her husband in the barn and the baler is running!

Many thanks for the waterfall graphs. Is there any chance you can do lossless variants from now on or is it a limitation of the sound/graphics card in your PC?

lfeman

Big thanks to you, too. Was wondering when someone was going to take up the (huge) task of re-starting this thread as an active OP. Cheers!

Can't do lossless, only lossy. I doubt there would be any difference between lossy and lossless in waterfall graphs. Unless they were mastered differently...

Anyone looked the original Tron movie? Just curious. There's a few scenes that sound like they have decent bass on my 20th aniv. DVD.
post #85 of 16176
The A-Team I thought had accurate bass with the gunshots and music being nice and punchy. The LFE when the ship started to tip over was shocking at the time b/c there was not much sub 20Hz before that point in the movie. I need to hit a few of the scenes again as the kids were sleeping when I watched it.

I read in my hometheater magazine that the audio track in the original Tron was beefed up with extra bass on the Bluray to try to match up closer to the remake. They said the bass was good but not equal to the remake.

I heard Skyline sucked but I'm going to watch it tonight for the visual effects and the audio. Has anyone watched it on their system and if so how is the bass. Should I get a bag of popcorn ready for some great sound or is it a waste of some snacks.

For the record, I have the 20th anniv. DVD (2002 release?), and not the the Blu-ray. It certainly lacks the bass that Tron : Legacy has, but few movies have as much bass as T : L.

It was not to bad of a movie sound was fairly good with some good bass.

Anyone see Battle: Los Angeles? That movie has some crazy 10-20hz LFE throughout the movie.
