Agreed. People always mention Godzilla, which made me scratch my head when I watched it with my SVS PB12-ISD.

Actually, I think the easiest (and some of the best) bass in the whole movie is right there at the menu. It's a repeating loop of 25 hz thumps. Then you don't have to suffer through the movie itself. :-)

Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks this way.

My wife and I watched Flight of the Phoenix last night. During several scenes, my wife was physically scared enough to grab my arm and duck behind me for protection. The bass in that movie is very realistic -- and DEEP! The whole soundtrack is very well recorded. There are some really cool percussive sound effects as well as some sustained deep bass.

When the movie was over, my wife told me I should use it as a great bass "demo" flick -- and she's not usually into "loud." I think I'll go buy a copy to keep in my collection.

Agreed - In DTS or DD?

I watched Phoenix a couple weeks back in DTS + THX Ultra2 and I've got to say that it is one of the most immersive mixes I have come across. I seen all the latest blockbusters but this was a real standout. I revisted U-571 this week and it wasn't even close in terms of being 3-dimensional. I find most sountracks are played AT you from front and sides. Phoenix surrounded me to the point I couldn't tell where the fronts leaves off and the side picks up. Amazing.

Oh yeah, bass rocked during the crash scene.

DTS 5.1

I agree with Bing about the immersiveness of the DTS soundtrack. Pans from front to back and back to front were seamless. Also, there wer no "isolated" or disconnected sounds from the back channels -- gratuitous surround effects, I call them.

In addition to the bass, the immersiveness was part of the reason my wife and I felt so caught up in the action. Great movie. Great visuals. Great Sound. Highly recommended.

Finding Nemo
Chapter 25- Darla tapping the tank. Make sure you're belted in.

Jurassic Park III- Plane crash and dinosaur fight. Starting with "Unhappy Landings" chapter.

Just watched "The Incredibles" the other night, awesome.

My rental copy didn't have the dts option, but even in DD it shook the whole building. With a Pioneer 912 receiver at -25 I had to lower the volume. (Hsu STF2)

I just rented the Incredibles. Over at HTF I read that 2 members have blown their subs watching it! Perfect way to spend some time before Formula 1 starts later tonight.

I-Robot
Incredibles
U-571
Finding Nemo (Darla taping on the screen)
Jurassic Park (T-Rex scene still a crowd pleaser)
post #73 of 571
I have to agree with the Incredibles. I watched it last night at a low volume. It seemed devastating. I can not wait until I watch at "real" levels. Fiding Nemo, Darla and the whale are very strong. I think T3 has some strong bass. Maybe not Low but it is loud. Kill Bill has a few nice spots as well. The animation part knocked my blinds out of the ceiling.
post #74 of 571
Watched Incredibles last night also - definitely shaking things up. Didn't really detect a tight thumping scene on the same level as Darla tapping the glass in Finding Nemo, but lots of variety of subsonic stuff from all of the cool vehicles, doors, combat, etc.

The rocket launch in The Incredibles made my neighbors shake with my SVS PB12 - Ultra/2.

Great recording for sure but I wasn't as impressed as I thought I'd be.

Flight of the Phoenix even in DD sounded alot better to me.
post #77 of 571
TD,

I first thought the Incredibles would be loaded with bass and it does have some but the rocket launch really got my attention. Try it and see if you agree. I don't have the chapter # right now but it's just before the big robot fight in the city near the end.
I'll try Flight of the Pheonix this weekend.

The only movie that turned on the light sensor in my remote was the Incredibles. 3 times my remote lit up on its own just from the bass.

Thanks! I'll rerent it soon and FYI, I did like the bass but in my room it wasn't as powerful as FOTP.

post #83 of 571
Just rented Flight of the Phoenix last night after seeing everyone talk about it. I just have to say Damn that is some good stuff when they start going down where the plane goes into a roll. I got a pretty good full body massage out of it wile sitting on the couch. Everything loose or not tied down in the room made it's self noticeable as well. There has to be some decent sub sonic stuff thought the movie as well. There was a few places in it where I could feel a decent amount of bass but not hear much at all.

Yeah, my wife was making whimpering sounds during the plane descent/crash, and the sandstorm scenes. The bass was deep, loud and LONG. I felt like I was going to fall out of my seat. Have to add this to my demo scene collection.
post #85 of 571
Anyone do any measurements of the subsonic stuff on Phoenix? Would be curious to see how far below 20Hz the crash scene goes.
post #86 of 571
I'd like to know as well.

I haven't seen the DTS version of it, but even the DD one has to be one of the "best bass" movies I have ever played on my system.

I wish I could listen to it at reference level, but even at -20 the building I live in is "shaking" (STF2)
Awesome sound for sure.
post #87 of 571
Jurrasic park
The Incredibles has a good track
Under Seige (when the 15" guns are fired)
The Day After Tomorrow (I love this politically motivated movie) Tidal wave scene.
post #88 of 571
Watched the newly released DVD Elektra in DTS. You want deep bass? All through the movie the sound effects were riddled with kettle drums and low frequency sound effects. The visual effects were good too and I'm not just talking about Jennifer Garner.

My recent favorite has been Alien Vs Predator. When my pants legs shake I know I've got some bass. It's got some of the cleanest, deepest bass I've heard in any movie.

Others I like:

SW: TPM - the pod race
Terminator 3
Master and Commander
Independence Day

In regards to Underworld: yep, it's got serious bass throughout the movie. It's got so much bass content that it actually becomes distracting and really sort of humerous. And it's not really DEEP bass, it's just this big, giant blob of bass that gets spit out slowly across the entire film.
And I'm a fan of the movie - I just think the bass content was WAY overdone
post #90 of 571
I have not seen the new DTS version yet....I wanted to know if anyone has seen this and if it has good Bass for an older movie?

I will probably pick up a copy in a week or two but was just curiuos...


Thx,
Claude
