Tonight was a good night in terms of bass and audio quality, paired with good entertainment. Isn't that the whole reason we have HTs?
First, Gods Of Egypt (Gerald Butler). This movie wouldn't qualify as a bass fest, but it had plenty of it, and was very fun. It hit hard, was loud, but was also varied and the mix had great dynamics. I found the mix a bit inconsistent at times, for it wasn't as involving or detailed as I felt it could be. Besides the dialogue seemed a bit low at times. Overall the audio is pretty good, but I wouldn't rank it among the best mixes I've heard, but it doesn't have to be. The movie is recommended for the pairing of visuals and audio, which quite frankly is half of the fun with movie.
I listened to it between -14 and -7 (I had to ride the MV because there were people at home), but the track was balanced, though a little low in level. When I hit -7 in some scenes towards the end, it never sounded harsh or too overbearing, and had I been alone, I probably had ventured watching the whole thing at -6.
The surprise of the evening was the movie Ninja Assassin (the one with the Korean star Rain). The film had huge amounts of bass, and it was very well executed. Gunshots, explosions, ninja weapons, crushes, punches, music score, and pretty much everything audio related was spot on, and almost flawless. I was quite impressed with the audio quality and attention to detail, especially for a movie that wasn't a big blockbuster.
Gods Of Egypt had "bigger" scenes , but Ninja was more consistent in everything, and even had louder bass at lower MV at times. The audio mix complemented very nicely the onscreen action, which was superb.
IIRC, both movies are full bandwidth, or at least I remember Ninja scoring pretty high on data-bass.
Both movies guarantee at the very least a great audio experience.
