Hoping for a great sound mix and a good movie to go along with the bass as well !!
All of those are great options, so go with what genre you and your friend will prefer and find the most entertaining.
Hurricane Heist was one of my favorite full bandwidth bass mixes last year with no EQ needed, but it is pretty cheesy with fairly low production value but a brutal bass track throughout (not memorable for its soundtrack), not that The Meg doesn’t have its own cheese factor depending on your tastes.
I’m finishing up Overlord now, and it’s a little silly and derivative story wise and very gory/violent with crazy good ULF, but that’s with BEQ to bring up a ton of the <20Hz content that’s chopped off.
Hunter Killer is also full bandwidth like Hurricane Heist but IMO a much better movie with an awesome use of underwater effects and ULF; the musical score didn’t stand out to me because the tension from the excellent bass and sound mixing alone were enough to help it shine.
Upgrade is on my to watch list still and seems fairly unique among these films; it got good reviews and seemed to surprise a lot of people as a well rounded film but maybe the least amount of bass among this list judging by the graph.
TCP just arrived in the mail today, so I can’t comment yet but plenty of people have and the graph doesn’t lie. It has some of hardest hitting bass around down to ~17Hz. If sci-fi or cyber-punk is your thing, that’s an easy choice along with Upgrade.
Pick your poison!
