Definitely buying this one. We were watching the previews for it the other night when we watched Storks as a family and we all decided that we need to buy Fantastic Beasts asap.

I should add that Storks had a few bass moment as well. Nothing to write home about but it was there for sure.

Sounds like the film was trying to be accurate." He wants to see it. So it comes down to knowing the audience (as with anything).

I'll add, as an old history teacher I'm all for things that present war in it's true light. Not to glorify it, but to make it real. When it's real we realize just how terrible it is and how much we should strive to avoid it at all costs. When I saw the scenes on Hacksaw Ridge all I thought about was how horrid war is and how it should always be the last resort.
Hi Hop,

I haven't seen "Hacksaw Ridge" yet, although I will. And, I understand that this is a bass in movies thread, but I re-watched an older movie the other day that I think perfectly captures the brutality, and sometimes the complete futility, of war. I say sometimes, because we don't always have a choice. "Pork Chop Hill" was based, very accurately, on events which occurred right at the end of the Korean War. It's not brutal in the modern sense, with intestines oozing out in full color. In fact, this movie is in black and white. But, it's very stark in demonstrating what it's like to be in the meat grinder, and the absolute randomness of combat. It's also a bit of a psychological exploration, as many modern films are not. Just thought I would mention it for war movie buffs. There are plenty of good modern movies, and I enjoy some others for the action and the bass, even when they don't have much else. But, many older ones are simply better written, acted, and directed.

Regards,
Mike

I have gotten back to purchasing Blu-ray's now that I improved my home theater system, and have been watching movies like a mad man for the past couple weeks. Having a high quality audio system has been both a blessing and a curse. When I had my HTIB set-up, anything I watched sounded very similar. Blu-ray, Netflix, and or casting my screen with my Chromecast didn't make a difference. Now that I have myself a solid system, I notice a dramatic difference when watching Blu-ray content. MUCH better audio all around, and WAY better bass. Netflix is "decent", and I do have the Ultra HD subscription. Casting my screen sounds pretty terrible though. So now I try to watch blu-ray's whenever possible, much better experience.

Anyways of all the movies I've watched the past couple weeks, Mad Max Fury Road was the biggest onslaught of bass I've experienced. Just watched it last night and my god it's got some serious LFE. Currently I have a very mediocre subwoofer set-up, running dual BIC F12's. But Mad Max nearly shook my house apart lol. I have an HSU VTF-3 MK5 on the way, which will be here early next week. I can't wait to get it dialed in and re-watch some of the movies I've watched recently. I picked up Hawksaw Ridge and will be saving it for the HSU.

I'm late to this party but I greatly appreciate what MrGrey and others have done with this new thread. Very exciting!

Thank you very much for the hard work. Over the years I have learned so much from the input of the many very knowledgeable bassheads who post here and in the predecessor threads.

It's because I love bass so much that my wife recently threatened to cut me up and bury me piecemeal in my sub boxes!.

Tell her bigger subs = bigger boxes, and larger pieces = less work for her. You're doing it all for her.

To me 13 Hours had a more 'tailored' sound, you could feel in your chest and dissect every gun shot. In HSR, some things bugged me like the BAR sounding a bit too low and bloated IMO.

I enjoyed Hacksaw Ridge. Sound wise right up there with MMFR, 13 Hours, Deepwater Horizon.

Honestly the gore, etc didn't really bother me. I think there has been more gruesome episodes of The Walking Dead..

When you start spending time over in the DIY section and reading about builds with 8 x 18 or 21 inch subs, and start planning your next upgrade, then you will know that you have really started to plumb the depths of this strange fascination.

Safe to say everyone's room excites different frequency's, and some have nulls where others don't.Depending on where they are sitting and probably more important, do they have a nearfield sub makes a difference
If somebody's not feeling it, not much to do about that, except pop in the movie that takes it over the top like Battle: Los Angeles or Cloverfield and enjoy YOUR space

I have found that native DD+ decided by your receiver sounds better than having your streamer transcode it to plain 'ol DD. But I agree fully that nothing beats the lossless tracks of physical media. I've always cared more about audio than video. I buy the Blus of the best soundtracks but I'm satisfied with Vudu streams of the mediocre ones.

To this day, no title gives my complete system a more thorough workout than MM Fury Road. Subs, TTs, MBMs, Atmos… my system is catching its breath between each action sequence!

It was just a total surprise to me. Kind of a bummer, because now I'm becoming a bit of a high quality audio snob lol. Just shows me how crappy my HTIB system was, literally zero difference between formats. Maybe a slight overall volume increase with Blu-ray, but that was about it. Now Blu-ray sounds SOOO much better overall, along with still being a bit louder. I can't wait for my new sub to arrive Tuesday!

Different subs, different rooms/responses, etc.....its not surprising to read of different experiences.

I watched DWH Fri and HR Sat and thought both were excellent bass films, but I would say HR was a notch above DWH for bass overall. HR had tons of that loud and low below 20hz type bass that was very intense! My ported subs (I'm above reference capable with my room gain/response down into the low teens and also run a couple Buttkickers attached to a suspended type platform my couch sits on) were eating this up and that first battle half way through the film in particular was absolutely insane!

If somebody's not feeling it, not much to do about that, except pop in the movie that takes it over the top like Battle: Los Angeles or Cloverfield and enjoy YOUR space
I would love one day to have the opportunity to watch a a few sequence of a movie in the same studio used to do the master.

Couldn't agree more. The fact that your room will have a huge impact on bass frequencies, for better or worse, has been documented a thousand times in various threads. The larger and more powerful the bass system is, the more significant the problem, even with "room correction."

While running some errands at Home Depot today, I got extremely tempted to get some MDF sheets cut for my build #3 and #4. Please Lord give me the courage!

My ported subs (I'm above reference capable with my room gain/response down into the low teens and also run a couple Buttkickers attached to a suspended type platform my couch sits on) were eating this up and that first battle half way through the film in particular was absolutely insane!
yep agree, it just must be a room thing, measurements don't lie! They must be certain freq that get a null in my room and others that don't, because I don't lack good bass on most movies. Plus I need to go back and rewatch, as I might have be influenced by the lack of action/lfe in the first 1/2 of the movie...

It would be interesting to see your room response. Can you post your measurements?

Did you rent Hacksaw Ridge? Or stream it? The Redbox rental of Hacksaw Ridge has a lossy format. The purchase version has a lossless.

I have a door in my media room that rattles a little during intense ULF workouts.....is there anything out there to dampen the rattle?
