This one indeed started well and finished very well ! loved the many shades of bass detail and the faint ULF foundation that reared its head ever so often to remind one that deep bass is here "feel me" biggrin.gif I forgot I did like this movie and would put it up there with the better flicks!

Cool! I just received my 4k(lol) superbit copy and intend to watch it soon. Nice to hear that the movie is better than some of the critics have indicated. I like sci-fi adventure/end of the world stuff. Break out the popcorn, turn off the brain and enjoy. smile.gif

This is a main reason I never listen to critics. I love apocalyptic movies, but I'm easily entertained I guess. Critics seem to always like the movies I usually have no interest in seeing.

Keep your expectations low. This movie IMO is the perfect argument for a quality HT setup. Honestly, I don't know if I would have sat through this film once if I was watching upstairs on the small flat panel and crappy TV speakers since the film can be eye rolling corny at times I thought. In the HT however it takes on new life when the LFE is blowing your hair back, the surround work kicks in and so on. I can certainly understand those critics who trashed the movie. Its all subjective though and you could love it, hate it or something in between. Just make sure you not only turn your brain off, but remove it from your skull completely, crank up to reference and enjoy.

I could not agree more with these movies. There are many movies that are really good but almost a waste of electricity to fire up in the theater. I can't wait for the summer movies to come out as I know at least half of them will sound great in the theater. I mean Cloverfield is boring on my TV but in the theater it is an event! Same goes for many movies. I find it funny that just the other day my friend came over to watch a movie and put in Skyfall. He said he did not like that movie when we saw it at the theater. While watching it in my theater he mentioned that he does not remember this movie being that good! I told him the audio has drawn you in now and makes the movie a whole different experience.

So true... good point !

Most focus on the picture quality of a movie... but the audio is 50% of the game really when you think about it. Some, I would think, would even argue that the audio is even more than half the experience of 'experiencing' a film in a home theater with quality audio/video components biggrin.gif

Exactly. I actually had that happen with THOR a few summers ago. Went and watched THOR with a friend of mine at the local hole in the wall $1.50 theater and did not care for the movie. Dark picture, horrible sound and so on. Watching it a few months later in my HT it seemed like a completely different film/experience!

Same here, critics like depressing movies that reminds them it's time for their antidepressant :)

I would say Audio is at least 65% if not more especially with a good system :)

>65%,
Couldn't agree more!

Just picked up battle of los Angeles. I'm gonna demo it on my friend. Anyone of you guys can tell me which Part or scene with the good bass? So that I can go directly over there when we get home. Ty

I never looked at the response on a graph, but at 18-20 minutes in, when they're coming into LA on the choppers, that's pretty powerful eek.gif

Oh and the last 20min approx. of the movie..

I really have to bring up Underworld Awakening again. Damn, the bass from the super lycan ridiculously powerful. I love that scene.

Battle LA already has a reference level transfer on the old release, so whatever improvements are brought on by the 4k version will be negligible at best. You certainly won't see the improvement of something like Ghostbusters which needed (and received) a full overhaul. Audio which is the biggest reason to own this disc will of course be identical between the two versions.

It's actually Paramount.

Just finished watching Battle L.A.. The script was weak as it followed the usual formula and was quite predictable. But the movie wasn't so bad that it was rendered unwatchable. In fact, both my wife and I enjoyed it and yes, we did check in our intellect at the entrance to the cave. LOL

The audio portion.........well that is on a whole entirely different level. This flick has one of, if not the best soundtracks for this type of genre out there......... the fidelity is excellent. Everything military, whether it be machine guns, grenades, bombs, explosions, sonic booms........everything is top notch realistic sounding in this movie. The LFE is over the top clean and smooth digging down WAAAAAAAY low. This is now gonna be my reference demo disc for this genre.......nothing I've seen or heard comes close.

BTW;, I have the newly released 4k superbit master. Having not seen the original I cannot comment as to whether there is much of an improvement. What I will say is the video looked excellent and clocked in at an average of 40mbps.

Overall I will watch Battle LA over Flight of the Phoenix and War of the Worlds anytime. I'm fairly sure Dennis Quaid and Tim Robbins have no idea people still talk about their B movies over on AVS smile.gif

Agreed, quality sound is essential and at the least, the majority of the movie-going experience, if not more. Otherwise, images are nothing more than just images flashing in your eyes at 24 frames per second.
Sound is what brings them to life.

AVS? Isn't that what keeps the car from skidding? - Tim Robbins

No-no, it's how the car knows where you are. - Dennis Quaid

Is Hot Fuzz worth buying? I have most of the 5 and 4 1/2 stars to my library. Just never seen HF yet..
post #8217 of 16105

I thought Hot Fuzz was an ok movie but the LFE is kind of ridiculous (in a good way).

post #8218 of 16105
Shaun of the Dead was their best movie.

Worth buying how exactly? From a movie standpoint, movies are SO subjective its impossible to say how you will feel about it without any additional info (do you like the main actors in general? Have you seen anything else with these guys in it? Do you like Edgar Wright's work in general? etc....).

Now if you are asking if it is worth buying from a LFE/sound standpoint, IMO 100000% YES! Totally over the top LFE that is a LOT of fun and will give your subs a huge workout! cool.gif

No, but this movie is maybe too much of everything - but it keeps our systems ALIVE wink.gif
