So how the original ranking was created in the first place? Was it based on fr charts[ many don't have it] or personal opinion[who's?] or both?

Great work. Thanks.


Don't forget to add "9" to the list. It is definitely a 5 star in the bass department. Also I think that The Hurt Locker deserves to be up there as well.

Yes... definitely 9 needs to be a five star.


I need to go back through Dragonball Evolution. Terrible movie, but it's at least a good 4 1/2 stars.

Blue Crush (the DVD version) might be a 5 star movie for LFE or 4 ½ at the least IMO. I believe it comes out on Bluray this summer.


It would be great if someone could post waterfalls of this one.


If you have not heard it, you need to check this one out.

It was not my idea. The person who did this list originally made that choice and i think it might be some kind of typo or mistake after all because Star Wars-Attack of the Clones sure have better bass than three stars. Will put it in 4,5 star category, i think it deserves it.


Also watched Titan A.E. icefield scene in dts and for that scene itself, that movie sure needs to be in five star list.

I agree. Titan AE has an explosive begining also. The earth blowing up was an extraordinary sound demo.

Thanks.

You should add Transformers 2 into the 4.5 star bass thread and lower M&C to the 4 star. I thought Transformers 2 was better for bass, especially when comparing blurays.

^I think there needs to be a formula used to determine a movie's bass rating since this can be very subjective and depend on what a person's system can actually do. At least with a formula, you could get a better and more consistent rating for movies.


What that formula is I don't know, but it seems like it could be based on a point scale. Maybe determined by some of the following attributes such as; quantity of bass, impact (how deep), intensity (long or short sustained scenes), bass control (is it bloated or very defined) etc... Not sure if this is the best starting point but there has to be some type of method we could use to better determine a movie's "Bass Rating" other than "I think it should be...".

^ I agree.


Listening can be off from one person to another.


Another note, how good are tracks on older movies? Any one stand out? Wondering how the new star wars set will be when it comes out. Lucas better have remastered the audio!!

I judge a movie's bass on extension, spl, quantity, and quality. One note high levels of bass sucks unless it is at 10hz and under!!!! My system plays to 5hz at reference levels and it is just my opinion. M&C for instance had one scene that was great but not on the bluray.

Therein lies the problem with coming up with a formula - everybody's systems and opinions are different.


I'd say the general consensus should probably be what each movie ends up getting. If five guys give, say, the Incredibles four stars and I say it deserves five; the movie should then get four stars

I think the simplest would be to judge the bass for performance down to say 20hz, which most people would be able to play. Then if a movie does have deeper bass, we can make note of that and maybe the timestamp. There's no point rating down to 5hz until the bulk of people on here can play it; since CEA testing is down to 20hz, wouldn't that make the most sense?

Tron, Terminator Salvation, Revenge of the Fallen, and HTTYD are my favorites by far.
