I own a lot of headphones, and the HD650 is the worst of them all for movies. No bass, no highs,
Check out the new Massdrop HE-XX. I can't fathom a better combo of price versus performance. I own the HE-X V2, and they're phenomenal for movies. Just well balanced all around. They also were $1,299 new, and the HE-XX is $599. They're very similar to the model I have.
DT-990 is good for a lower price option, but the highs can be a little grating for some. Bass is impressive, but muddy compared to slightly more expensive headphones.
I love bass for immersion. I really like my Monoprice M1060, and Fostex TH-X00 Ebony for movies, because their bass is so good. Much smaller soundstage than the HE-X, but those are up there with the HD800 in that regard.
