Watching the first race scene in Ready Player One was a religious experience. I’ve never felt ULF/LFE like that before and combined with the image, Atmos, and general mayhem - it was awesome. I was stunned.
What other scenes have visual and sonic impact like that? What else has the total package of
2. Stunning Image
3. Immersive Sound
4. Aggressive Sequence
Anybody? I didn’t even feel Jurassic Park dig as deep as the swinging cannon balls in Ready Player One.
I ran the sequence for my wife and her statement was “I can’t watch an entire film with stuff that intense.”
That’s a good word for it. Intense. What else is out there?
I’ve heard the opening plane scene in Overlord is killer. I’ll check it out next.
As for sound intensity Ready Player One is hard to beat, especially for newer movies. I don't recall feeling my hair and clothes moving as much on any movie as much as RP1.
Blade Runner 2049 has far fewer moments of crazy bass, but when it hits it's nuts too. The Atmos in BR2049 is the best I have ever heard
, and the picture quality is one of the best I've seen too. It is the only movie
that causes one of my ceiling speakers to make the HVAC (that the speaker sits right next to) rattle, and it does it quite a few times which gives you an idea of how much more content is put in the ceiling in that movie. Annoying rattle though, I'm surprised that the over all bass has never caused that but a little in ceiling speaker does.
BR is the only time I have thought, wow those overheads are LOUD.
Check out the 4K of Fury. The cannon fire is insane and the bass combined with the surround field will make you feel like bullets are ripping right through you.
As for older movies, check out the 4K Matrix. The Atmos is top 5-10 ever, and if you turn up the bass a bit it's great too while the picture quality for an "older" movie is fantastic.
Terminator Genysis in Atmos is underrated, I don't hear it talked about much but lots of very intense sound and bass.
And then of course there are the classic 5 star bass movies...
Hmmm I seem to be focused much more on the sound here...
