I would bump Superman Returns down to 3 stars.

Man on Fire gets at least 4, maybe even 5 stars.

thanks I respect your judgement, if It was up to me to rate all of them, I give them what they don't deserve. I'm never satisfied when it comes to quality.

I could go as far to add half stars? If things start to get to close.

Hot Fuzz

I am going to assume that we are bassing this on quantity of good bass. I this may cause me some disrespect but I would move Hot Fuzz down to 4 because I thought there was alot of poor uses, that almost made it annoying. I still think that this movie is great though!

Has anyone seen Run Lola Run TrueHD Blu-ray recently. I just saw theBlu-ray edition last night, and I was really surprised in a coupe of points by the amount of bass. It has an great techno sound track. It got my pipe rattling at -21dB! Granted they seems to be only tuned to about 30-35Hz.
post #1023 of 5740
Regarding "K-19 The Widowmaker" in the 5th chapter entitled "Crush Depth" About halfway through the chapter, the subsonic bass goes to near an 8K and 16K signal oscillating with a 2Hz carrier wave as they approach the submarine's technical depth limits. Very tough on subwoofers if not of the best quality. Can be felt quite dramatically and if the subs cover is off, you can see the woofer surround going back and forth while it vibrates furiously, but below hearing.

I would give Live Free or Die Hard at least 4 stars...just so impressed with everything about that movie from a sound perspective I think for sure transformers is a five star movie...anyone saying there isnt enough bass doesnt have the right equipment that movie was just awesome throughout...and of course the flip kicks some serious butt! just my thoughts for right now...i need to watch more on my system to get a feel!!

lovin this thread

I agree with the 3 star rating of Transformers. The Bass was good. That's why it's on the list! But it lacking low stuff, and there are many times when you think there should be more bass but it's us not there. The ending action scene is great, but I really expected more bass when the robots were walking. Looking at the waterfalls there is nothing that stands out the way a 4 or 5 start movie should. There is a lack of red below 30 Hz, much less pink or white. Please link to a water fall that you think should put it up there

The thing about Transformers is that, with a couple exceptions, there isn't much bass in the 20-30 hz range that we're used to look at for low bass. ... But, there is alot of bass BELOW 20 hz. That's where the earlier comment about you just have to have the right equipment to experience it comes from.

For much of that movie, it felt like I was riding on a cushion of LFE, all tingly and endorphin producing but not really audible. Excellent bass!

I do though also agree that in light of the storyline there could have been more in the 20-30 hz range, and that the robots' footsteps should have been much more crushing and room shaking, so I give it 4 stars for bass.

This are the waterfalls I can see to really support the sub 20 claim.

I agree with your transformers opinion 100%.
post #1029 of 5740
Transformers at 3 stars sounds right to me, I was actually disappointed with the minimum amount of bass, especially for a Michael Bay film
post #1030 of 5740
I just finished watching "Live Free or Die Hard" DTS-MA Blu-ray I'd give it , I think. I'd love to see a water fall of the gas pipe scene and probably a couple others too!

I agree, 4 stars sounds about right. There were a few very good bass scenes, and the guns sounded great, but I don't believe as far as bass goes, it should be rated higher than that.

4 stars for Live Free sounds good...though i deff. think transfomers should be more than three stars but thats just me if you arent getting a back massage from the LFE then i think its time for a new sub(s) but really i thought it was at least 4 stars... thanks!

For Transformers?

Look at the list of waterfalls Dr. has made...i mean...the whole last 40 min were just awesome to watch...i the attack on the base was great...i mean maybe someone can back me up that this movie had some sick bass lol...i didnt think it was great until i upped my system and messed around with some EQ...then it became a different movie

DrPain....is there anyway you can put a waterfall up for X-3 with the house scene?? i thoguth my house was going to lift off watching that...thanks!!

I need to rewatch that scene, I haven't watched it since I upgraded my system.
post #1037 of 5740
Rendition has some strong (-5)bass especially in what I will only call the tense interrogation lead-in and actual inter. scenes. WOrth checking out...I've already turned it in. I've been sick all week with this flu kraup and was too tired to finish it.

Actually it was very disappointing..the only decent bass was the "Ironhide" flip. And that lasted 5 or so seconds.

IMO transformers was underwhelming and my PC-ULTRA and MBM-12 can attest to this....

Here we're seeing some of the difficulties in doing ratings. What are we looking for here? It's really a matter of whether we're rating things based on:

1) duration of hard-hitting bass
or
2) those with the absolute lowest frequency (those w/ 20Hz and below)
or
3) movies with a few scenes that are just truly world-class jarring, but otherwise doesn't have a lot of bass

For example, I'd say that the closing sequences of Monster House and the Darla tank-tapping and submarine sequences of Finding Nemo can hang w/ the best of 'em, but large portions of the movie have very little bass.

Then there are films like Apocalypto that have a lot of REALLY low stuff, but not a lot of the higher frequencies of LFE that make people think of a movie as a true bassheads movie.

Then we have films like Transformers and Sunshine that give your sub a good workout (though Transformers really works the woofers on your spkrs more than your sub) just b/c of the duration of the LFE, but don't get ridiculously low.

I truly have some trouble distinguishing which is 'more important,' b/c I think it would depend on your equipment and intent. If you've got a high spl sub that doesn't necessarily go that low and you just want a movie that allows you to feel your sub throughout, then Transformers is a great choice. If, however, you wanna have friends over or wanna check out yourself with the most impressive scenes, then you may be more interested in Finding Nemo.

I don't know that there is a real 'answer' to this. I just wanted to put it out there as a reason we may have trouble reaching consensus on the relative merits of each.

I think if we all give reasons WHY we rate a movie somewhere we can have a discussion about it and reach a consensus.

If I just say "X movie should be rated 3 stars" then ther is nothing much to discuss. But if I say "X movie should be rated 3 stars because......." then others can agree or disagree based on my reasoning.

I liked King Kong as a Movie, and it had very good BASS through out.

I don't care what others think on this one, but maybe I'm bias towards it.

Haha, yes I meant sole or soul, as in one's soul( inner body spirit). Late night drinking has that effect on grammer with me.

Nothing is written in stone here, so I'm taking the democratic way. The more votes wins. Let the chips fall where they lay, and I'll sort it out after the "trial" period of the ratings period. Like I stated it's a work in progress.

It starts early too ( lack of it that is) - ie scene that should have more bass but comes up limp: when the first helicopter robot attacks the US base.

There was a pause for the robot to load up his weapon & when he launches into the 'small' arms fire, it is weak.

I know there was capacity limitations with HD discs but even in DD+ it was limp.
