We must not have seen the same film. eek.gif

Brave.
4-5 stars.

Why hasnt this little gem of a movie received more attention? I think Randy Thom was involved in this (?) and it has his "signature". Starts out a bit slow, bass wise, but definitly makes up for it towards the end. A few "Kung fu Panda" moments with surprise bass that at one time hit so hard that my HDMI connector jumped out of the projector. That was a first smile.gif

Not a lot of the low shudder effects or the sub 10hz stuff, but, the 20hz or so was excellent. 4 stars for the ULF crowd, 5 stars for the guys that love the higher stuff. Also, the LFE was very well done and the movie was great too. Loved it!

I've seen it - wasn't too terribly impressed with the rental DVD. Four stars at most. Didn't see Randy's name in the credits.

I wonder if the DVD has the same LFE as the Bluray.
And, I might be wrong about Randys involvement in the movie. Still, the LFE sounded like a typical RT product. Reminded me of HTTYD, but with less bottom oompf.

Gary Rydstrom ("Monster's Inc," "Nemo" "Saving Private Ryan") was the sound designer, not Randy Thom.

Thank you for the correction.

Now, has anyone graphed it? smile.gif

I have to agree!! It shook all four of my theater chairs and the floor and thats what I expect from movies that offer sweet LFE!!

cool.gif

A+ for Looper on bass and movie enjoyment!

Didn't sound anything like HTTYD, in my opinion. Then again, I watched the entire LotR extended trilogy on Blu-Ray this week, and only Fellowship really gave me the five star vibe I remembered from the last time.

Actually got up during Return of the King to make sure both tapped horns were working. They were. I can now only assume that...

[singing]I've grown accustomed to the baaaaaaaass...[/singing]

Need to re-measure my Reckhorn B-2 and see if it's drifted off its settings again. If not, maybe I'll let the horns have a little more fun next time and goose the LFE a bit more.

Makes sense. I commented after watching Brave that it felt/sounded like Pixar LFE at its best and reminded me of Nemo, Monsters Inc, Toy Story 2 and The Incredibles. Great LFE and audio in general!

Hi guys. I purchased Cabin in the Woods on BD (local Australian version) and watched it after reading here about the bass (I have seen the movie before and enjoyed it), but I was underwelmed and thinking that we got rolled with the local disc compared to the US release. I have a very capable system IMO (3x JTR Triple 8's and 2 Slanted JTR's for rears, 2x Seaton Submersives powered by Krell TAS 5 channel amp, Anthem D2v processor, Oppo BD-95 player).

I believe it was mentioned the bass moments are chapter 9 and at the 51min mark, is this correct? I'm visiting by brother tonight who has a full Mark Seaton setup (3 Catalyst, 2 Sparks, 2 submersives and D2v processor), so will try the disc tonight and report back.

I think I would rate Looper 4.5 stars - The first scene scared the crap out of me at reference. I had friends over and dialed back to -7 and it was still a bass fest. Not all the bass was super low, but there were some scenes with some ULF content as measured by my pant legs shaking and hair moving. The blunderbuss shots and the shots from the big pistol were awesome.
post #6765 of 16084
When I watched it, Cabin in the Woods was downright violent during about the last 20-30 minutes - first time my wife texted me to turn it down - and she wasn't in the same physical building (my HT is a converted half of a detached garage, about 70 feet from the house itself).

Wow, these two are surprising grades. IMHO, TDKR is far surperior to TAS in overall bass quality. Maybe I'll have to re-watch both movies now that I have my Seaton Submersive HP smile.gif. I also think that the bass quality in Brave deserves a better rating. The bass with the running horse or the bears fighting was very impressive to me.

Dredd does have some amazing bass. I enjoyed Dredd and Looper very much. Total Rekall...not as much.

Thank you for that. I'm not going to my brothers place now so will test on my system tonight again but a bit louder this time smile.gif.

My sister just watched Jack Reacher in my local cinema. The bass from the car engines is badly produced by the subwoofers in the cinema...with annoying loud distortions. Looks like the subs are not up to the task in reproducing pure engine sounds. I'll wait for the Bluray release and test it on my HT setup.

Just watched Looper. Enjoyed the movie. Some good bass in there, but Total Rekall is a lot better, IMO.

+1 Not that Looper was bad (it wasn't) Recall had a lot more over the spectrum. imho. Both films killed the dreck that was the Dark Knight's sound track.
post #6772 of 16084
In my setup i give the following ratings:
Looper 4.5 stars.
Total Recall 4 stars.
Finding Nemo 4.5 stars.
Resident Evil: Retribution 4 stars.
Rock of Ages 2.75 stars
I put in the Scuba Steve disc in for several demos over the holiday season. 5 stars!!!
post #6773 of 16084
I just downloaded Leo's BD50 Demo disc, that means I blew through 25% of my monthly allowed bandwidth in 1 day lol, I will probably wait till next month to d/l ScubaSteve's demo disc because its almost 50gig. Im only allowed 175gig total bandwidth per month or its a buck a gig for going over. eek.gif

Both discs are superb! I definitely hope to see more from those two! But a 175gb cap? You've got to switch service providers man!

I belive they are botth located in the Dedicated Home Theater Construction thread. Search for Scubasteve demo disc and Superleo Demo Disc and the reults should be somewhere on the page...might have to scroll down to find it. Superleo's begins with something like \\\\reference\\\ or something like that.

I just watched Dredd! Very immersive sonic experience! Some very cool ULF scenes. I am curious has anybody run charts on this yet? I felt the LFE dug deeper than both Looper and Total Recall!
