I'm making a demo DVD of 14 or 15 scenes with explosions, and I need some suggestions.


You know the type, the ones that hit you in the chest and move the chair back a few inches -- like the opening battle scene in Master and Commander.


Please help me out and name your favorite explosions.

I think private Ryan has a good scene also. But try Bad Boys 2, the scene where the hatians were try to get the Drugs, lots of gun shots and car crashing

the scene in I, Robot in the tunnel where the robots try to destroy his car, is rather intense. the large "trrop" carriers make an awesome vibrations with the buttkickers.


Hard to beat Master and Commander..


Jurassic Park, where the T Rex eats the lawyer is also a good thumper of a scene.

Thanks, everyone, for your replies.


Keep 'em coming. I know there are many scenes with great LFE, but I'm just looking for explosions.

The "palm" fight scene at the end of Kung Fu Hustle.

This is among the few scenes in any of the movies I've watched that actually made me wonder if my Servo-15 was going to survive.

Specifically, there is an extremely high-level, sharply defined infrasonic shudder at one point in the fight that shook the air and room boundaries to a level I had not yet experienced with my system.

(and I was watching 5db below my normal maximum volume setting!)


The Incredibles is also excellent.

How about the scene from the first Matrix where they enter the lobby?


Also, the scene from Finding Nemo where they are in the whale and doing whale talk?


I second the scene from iRobot and would also put in a push for a small scene from the opening of Bandits. Not a whole lot of action or anything, but the two brothers are in the bank and when they fire off a shotgun it sounds like they are right in front of you.

Sorry if this list seems long or vague, I am just going through my DVD list to see what I can remember. I haven't seen some of these in a while so I don't remember how the audio is, but they are explosion scenes:


The Sum of All Fears: Nuke in stadium, aircraft carrier, russian airforce base, and car bomb.

Fight Club: Final scene with the credit company buildings dropping outside the window.

Any Terminator: The flashback/forwards of the Nuke with the playground scene.

Casino: car bomb

Cold Mountain: Civil War battle with underground explosions.

Gone in 60 Seconds: Rag in gastank of car to distract gangsters

The Hunted: Kosovo flashback war scene

Identity: Car explodes



That wasn't nearly as long as I thought. I have fewer action movies than I thought, and I haven't seen or don't remember many of them very well. Oh well, it's still something.


Good luck with the search,

Brian
