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.


To me there isnt enough bass in that movie to make it a 4/5. There are a couple spots really. Cabin blowing up, the factory and I think a spot near the end but they are all pretty short. Nevertheless it is pretty good bass just not enough.

The Bourne legacy a 3.5. I would compare it to Hanna in the amount of bass just not as intense. The dark knight rises deserves a 4. Anything above that is people overlly excited because its a batman movie.

By the way I'm just getting back in the game after a solid 9 months after selling off my entire system. I'm know just rebuilding but have enough to be able to comment on bass in movies.

Giving Resident Evil Damnation 3/5. Just not enough bass smh. There is 1-2 scenes that are good but short in the bass department. Last fight scene where missile hits the coat zombie guy.

Next on my list (if I can find it) Resident Evil Retribution.

So far VERY good for the bass on finding nemo BR. Much better than the already good DVD version

That's good to hear, if the bass is "better" on blu ray.

I couldn't make my mind up if i should replace it the dvd disk. But, i may now :D

Dark Knight Rises...

I'm watching it now and noticing excessive background noise while playing at reference... Unlike anything I have ever heard on other Blurays...

Has anyone else noticed this, or is it just me?
post #6307 of 16212
-2 from reference on Rises twice today! No background noise at all... one of the cleanest mixes I've heard recently.
post #6308 of 16212
I'm on hour in @ -5 (RLO 0/Dyn EQ) and sounds very clean. Nice bass so far but nothing crazy. Bain dialog more clear than theater.
post #6309 of 16212
Great... One more thing to try to figure out. I need something to blame the excess background noise on...

Just got done watching this and it was fantastic! LFE, overall audio, video, movie....this is the full package IMO. Same mix from the dvd to my ears which I always thought was amazing. cool.gif

I just finished Finding Nemo too and the LFE (and overall audio) was indeed fantastic. This is my first time watching it with my new SVS PC12 and two scenes really stood out:

1) When Marlin & Dora were being ejected from the whale.
2) When Darla was tapping the aquarium.

I cranked up the Pioneer receiver to -5 for those two scenes....WOW!!!!! Bass Nirvana, for sure! cool.gif

Nice!!! cool.gif I was just going to shoot you a PM asking if you watched it. What a great HT experience! Along with the scenes you mentioned, I thought the submarine sliding off the cliff was an awesome LFE moment as well. It was so great hearing/feeling Darla tap the glass again though as it has been years since I last experienced it. cool.gif

Yeah, the sub scene was good too, but at that point I didn't turn it up to -5 (I watched most the movie on -15). Well, like I said in my PM, my mind is shutting down so I'm calling it a day.

In Thor, how low does the bass go in the scene when Thor flips the table?

I noticed some slight noise from the surround channels in some scenes. It stopped immediately when the scene changed. It wasn't anything that distracted or sounded bad, just something I noticed. Played it at -5dB on the ADA.

No disagreement on my part. Changing to 3.5 stars.

We watched "Green Lantern" last night on cable. To me, "Green Lantern" is an excellent example of a movie soundtrack that uses bass as bass should be used; in a non-overpowering sophisticated fashion that enhances and doesn't distract. Where bass frequencies add to the sound track and movie watching experience (a blend of sight and sound) as opposed to being all about bass frequencies. Correct my characterization if I'm wrong or misunderstand but some of the reviews here come across as if it's not about how bass is used to enhance the emotion of the movie soundtrack but instead, their reviews are about how loud and often the low can go low. In other words, their reviews come across as if they're looking for a soundtrack that's a 100% <20Hz.

confused.gif

In my opinion, for continual sophisticated use of bass in which to enhance the emotional appeal of the movie viewing experience, I'm going give "Green Lantern" a 5 out of 5 possible stars.

And please, by all means, for my edification in understanding what's what with what, weigh in and inform me of any misunderstandings I might have regarding the purpose of this thread and the star or point count system so in the future, I can more accurately reflect our bass soundtrack, movie watching experience.

BeeMan458, please for your own safety could you slip on your flame retardant suit now if you haven't already done so. Thanks. Now time for me to grab a coffee and some biscuits and wait for the show to begin! Cheers smile.gif

One way to get an education is to jump into page number two hundred and eleven of a long running thread and offer an opinion. tongue.gif

No flame suit available, can I use my Green Lantern ring instead? tongue.gif

BeeMan,
I hear what you are saying about BR mixing and listening enjoyment in general terms.
However: "Buckle up", I think that's a "fire-storm" I see on the horizon smile.gif

Ah, so thats how its done.
Alrighty then, my turn!
Since I personally prefer bass that is centered at exactly 74hz and without any useful level and in combination with a beautiful blond I declare Battleship the #1 bass movie ever! 5 STARS!

Anyone else up for an additional rating system that is both irrelevant, useless and 100% subjective? Yo!

Since this is a dig, I understand, but come on, we all know the beautiful blond "is" the bass line.

So, the "husband" falls asleep and the "wife" stays awake to enjoy the movie and revel in the bass.....hmmmmm, it sounds like "you broke the old girl" AND "she broke the old guy." biggrin.gif

Pitch perfect.
Nice little chick flick with some redeaming qualities. Somewhat enjoyable. Bass was nonexistant: I have started loving the musicals (like Rock of ages a few weeks ago) but missed that this was a musical with a capella. So, no bass at all. So, a 2 star. And im being generous.

Finding Nemo.
As awesome as I remember it! Plenty of hard hitting bass.Especially the Whale scene and the Darla scene are great as well. Listened to this with LFE at ref and I believe the old rating was 4.5? No need to change that then. Dialog had a bit of, hmm, whats a good word... brightness to it that bothered me slightly though.

Dark knight rises is badass!! Some sick sick bass too my favorite little sound effect is subtle. Just when the "bat" is first shown to Bruce. You'll know what I mean. Second favorite is last 30 seconds of the movie

Easily 4.5/5

The first bat scene grabbed my attention as well. I actually replayed the first Bain-Batman fight scene and bumped the MV up to 0. Quite a dynamic scene.
