Regards,

The grenade blast at 1:05:31 was AWESOME!! eek.gifbiggrin.gif Made me literally
Jump out of my seat. Much better than the sound in the theater. wink.gif
Rythmik Rules!

On a side note I am interested in alternate "Russian ending".
I felt that the last 25 minutes kind of dragged a bit compared
To the rest of the film.

Really enjoyed this movie tonight. The 3d was definitely nothing to write home about but it didn't detract from the movie. That grenade LFE was awesome!
post #33 of 98
Enjoyed the movie a lot. Last part didn't drag near as much as I heard it did. I'm gonna buy it

Good movie that could have been better, as far as storyline goes. Great PQ (2D) and a very good soundtrack, you could turn this one up as loud as you wanted. Great LFE they went much lower than my sub would go. Honestly after STID this was hard to follow as far as audio goes, IMO.

Thanks for another great review Ralph! I saw this last night, the door of my theater room made a huge shudder/groaning noise at the point you mentioned.

I was sure something would have fallen off from the walls of our house smile.gif Great audio track on this one for sure!

WWZ better than the original the Night Of The Living Dead !  

A zombie (Haitian Creole: zonbi; North Mbundu: nzumbe) is an animated corpse raised by magical means, such as witchcraft. The term is often figuratively applied to describe a hypnotized person bereft of consciousness and self-awareness, yet ambulant and able to respond to surrounding stimuli. Since the late 19th century, zombies have acquired notable popularity, especially in North American and European folklore.

In modern times, the term "zombie" has been applied to an undead being in horror fiction, often drawing from the depiction of zombies in George A. Romero's 1968 film Night of the Living Dead They have appeared as plot devices in various books, films, television shows, video games and comics and more recently on reality television shows such as Dancing With The Stars,Jersey Shore,The Kardashians,Oprah, Dr Phill, and many "talking Head" network TV programs ha ha biggrin.gif

Brad Pitt is 49 now (hard to belive , time flies ) makes me feel old eek.gif

Well the wife and I just finished WWZ and I'm glad I chose to read the review after the movie so as not to spoil anything. About 10-15 min into the movie my wife pointed out to me, as I pondered to myself why they referred to it as WW "Z" ? I tell you even after the seeing the :preview in the theater and countless other previews from television and such it never dawned on me "Zombie" man did I feel stupid rolleyes.gif and now after reading the review , all I can say is "Dead On" And yeah that treat at 1:05 is outstanding! I wonder if they would have just said World War Zombie if the movie would have been taken seriously as it deserves to be taken. wink.gif

Any who, we loved it and thanks again Ralph smile.gif

Just watched it and enjoyed. Easily leaps and bounds better than WOTW.

My ex wife saw the movie after I did...... so I asked her if she saw any relatives of hers or my ex mother in law in the movie biggrin.gif

Anyone measure the bass pulse in World War Z? There was some explosion and sustained bass tone that got so loud, I thought my subs would fail... They didn't but, wow, what the hell was that?! It was in the latter part of the seen in Jerusalem. Holy crap!

Hi, they might have some measurements on the bass thread for movies. Or you could ask there smile.gif

My current sub did not produce the bass well at 1:05. But I'm taking care of that with a new HSU sub shortly wink.gif the upside to this is I'll have to watch all the movies with good bass over again biggrin.gif

Yep, Ralph noted it...."A great example of this can be found at the 1:05:31 mark during a firefight in Israel. There is a sweeping four of five second low frequency burst that reaches down deep and literally shook my room".

Yeah, It was incredibly loud and dynamic... I think If you watch this film at or near reference, many will blow up their subs!!biggrin.gif

I have to watch this over when I get my low end straightened out. I was underwhelmed and it has to be my sub because everyone thought this had some great LFE.

I gotta tell you it was crazy and seemed to come out of no where... It was loud, sustained and low. Even before the pulse was done, I was wondering if my two uber-potent subs were going to give! Mind you I had the volume near reference at -3.

I'd like to know the frequency response.. it was low but I would bet that it was near 30 Hz (Guess).

I gotcha and glad you enjoyed it. With some big these blockbusters I hesitate cranking the volume near reference. Even with great speakers we can do some irreversible damage, but it is fun biggrin.gif I scoffed at someone saying STID could damage speakers but it was true, and I read the reviews before I set my volume anymore. Also I'm wondering if the bass in this didn't go down lower than my sub can produce, I think the bass thread will show some results.



Edit;
I see you asked this in the bass thread already, I didn't notice earlier. Someone will post the results I'm sure.

Hey Jeff, yeah it caught me by surprise as well. I loved it and played it back three times in a row the first time through (I watched both versions of the movie). Without measuring my guess would be sub 30hz between 25 and 30. Regardless it's a great little piece to rattle the room. smile.gif

Maybe I was watching a different movie than everyone else, but I thought this movie sucked big. If I didn't know better, which I don't, I would guess this movie was funded, behind the scenes, by BIG PHARMA and they saved the world again with their wonderful vaccines! Great advertising for the end of a movie, what BS.

Other than that, I thought the PQ paled in comparison to others I have watched lately(VW95/Oppo/Hurley screen). Audio was very good, had my butt kicker rattling a few times that's for sure.

Great that you keyed in on it in your review.

Knocked my socks off! I'll have to check the clip lights on my amp and see if it got close!

This was a blind buy and your review was spot on Ralph. The big LFE hits were lots of fun and the film had a nice fast pace. As you said, good popcorn flick.

Hoping to watch this Friday night. Ralph is the bass scene you mention is it similar to the last scene on OZ the great and powerful. ( where two witches were fighting )?

Greetings,

Frank, I can't specifically recall that scene and as such would say that this is probably better. smile.gif
