BD 5.1 DD lossy only rentals seem to be limited to Lionsgate. If you have an issue with this studio like I do, I would file a formal complaint with Netflix, their largest buyer.

If I were rating only the bass, overall, I'd give this movie a one star for in my opinion, "MIB 3" barely shows up as a blip on a bass meter graph; total bass fail.

Totally agree on this. The launch scene barely saves a 3/5 rating.

Yeah, I've been thinking about it and I'm dropping my own vote to 3. MIB3 was very disappointing.

Come on, Tuesday... get here already so I can go get Dark Knight Rises.

Just finished MIB3. Yup. It's a 3. Even the launch was meh

Universal's Snow White & the Huntsman doesn't have the 7.1 soundtrack on my Netflix BD rental I've got now, and I'm pretty sure I've had other than Lionsgate films with limitations before that too. It's a rental, can't expect the owners to necessarily give it away (along the lines of if I want to copy it, that would encourage me to buy instead, that sort of thinking). Nice if the rental were everything but the extra packages are often turned off too, which is another aspect of me wanting to buy a disc rather than rent it. The only rental many owners really are interested in is the 2 or 3 hours for $$ at the movie theater....

So is MIB3 just lacking in bass or is the movie disappointing itself?

Mine was in DTS, but I rented it from BB. Regardless, If you pay extra for a Blu-Ray rental, the least they can do is provide the same audio and video quality. They're just being petty. As far as MIB3 is concerned, I just saw it tonight and enjoyed it, but the bass was few and far between which surprised me since Sonnenfeld loves bass in movies. Says it's manly. See his interview in Home Theater Magazine this month.

MIB 3 was a bust. The first one was great and the second one carried the theme of the first but the third lacked the style and character of the first two. IMO, it was a bad after thought effort to cash in on the success of the first two versions.

Drunk producer to writer: "I know, let's do a third MIB." Rent it, buy it as I won't tell you what's in it but to prevent disappointment, I'd wait until it comes out on commercial cable.

Think Ghostbusters 1 vs Ghostbusters II.

I liked mib3 quite a bit. Just lacking in bass which is always disappointing

I enjoyed MIB3 more than MIB2. It wouldn't be described as an LFE pleaser, but it had enough impact to be fun! Certainly wasn't "weak".

I watched that last night. Totally agree.

+1. I thought MIB2 was the money grab. MIB3 was actually very enjoyable.

Bootleg Dvds have horrible quality for sound. I only listen/download DTS 5.1 or Dolby Digital 5.1. downloaded avengers at DTSHD-MA. I only listen to the best now wink.gif

Most bootleg and downloadable versions are not bit-for-bit. Most are ripped, re-encoded piles of crap, or even worse....ShakyCam capture at the theater.

Sound? How about the picture quality? Of course if you're going to go that route, why not try a free movie torrent site where you can download the latest releases that are still in theaters! Just be aware that you may be a little bit distracted if the camera shakes, or when you see people coming in late and moving in front of the screen!

I will never understand why people think they are getting a great deal when purchasing those SORRY bootleg's filmed on whatever camera. My brother-in-law came with a copy of True Lies when it was out years ago, and it was so dark that I thought the part when Arnold was running through the SNOW with the guards chasing him was SAND because he only had on the tuxedo. When I finally looked at the original dvd release version of the film, I was totally shocked to see it was filmed in the SNOW. Of course, when I showed it to my brother-in-law, he then tells me I already saw it.

So I said... you are really missing out on a lot of pertinent material that's being presented in the actual movie. He had this look on his face like he knew I was right but wouldn't admit it especially when I showed him the scene with Arnold running in the SNOW! Not to mention the sound quality as well. Lol!

Identifying which is which before downloading is trivial.

Bootleg DVD's? Where are we, North Korea? Movies don't cost that much, and you can rent them for $1 at Redbox.

It all depends. Usually a month or two before it is released on BluRay, they have downloads available. Screener copies a pretty good too. The ones I download have the audio right from the disc. I believe no encoding is done for the audio....just the video side. HD audio is only about 1GB of the entire file...it's not that much.

Has anyone watched True Lies yet? How's the bass in that one?
post #6291 of 16108
Captain America was tonight's flik. Not bad. Could have been better bass. But a solid 3.5

Dang 4 times in 6300 posts. That is so inconsiderate. Who's responsible? Where's that steel ruler to whack their knuckles with? Or shall they just be subjected Tron-like to an existence in a waterfall from here on? mad.gif

The Bourne Legacy. 4/5.
One of those hard to rate movies. Not a lot of bass, but the bass is excellent when its there.
Kinda reminded me of the Hunger games in that perspective. The "machines turning off" scene and a few others were solid top notch 4.5-5 star stuff. But, that only happened a few times in the movie.
