  1. I would rate the 4 Craig Bond films as far as the actual film itself goes (not bass) like this.... 1. Casino Royale 2. Skyfall 3. Spectre 4. QoS I thought Quantum was definitely the weakest of the 4 films, but it's very subjective of course.
  2. Agreed. I can think of three films/bass tracks that were more disappointing than Avengers. Hobbit 1, Revenge of the Sith and 2012. Not trying to defend Avengers since it was obviously disappointing, but the three I mentioned IMO are considerably more disappointing. To say nobody cared or cares about the Hobbit films is also silly since there are obviously a lot of fans. Considering LOTR are 3 of my all time favorite films, I had high hopes for the Hobbit movies and even though they fell short to some degree (and certainly not on the level of LOTR), I still enjoyed them (especially parts 2 and 3). No doubt the low end WAS a letdown in all three of these movies, especially part 1 which would get my vote for most disappointing LFE movie ever. On a different note, does anyone here who can measure have access to both the original Casino Royale PCM track and the collectors edition True HD mix? There has been some debate on AVS on whether or not these two mixes are the same and one is just mastered at a louder volume, or if they are in fact different mixes. Would be great to put this debate to rest!
  3. Exactly. Phantom and Clones are definitely the two best for bass out of the six films. Between those two, I have always been partial to Clones.
  4. I will never forget watching 2012 on blu for the first time excited at the potential considering the material. I still consider it in the top 2 or 3 most disappointing LFE films ever with Hobbit part 1 and Revenge of the Sith being the other 2.
  5. I'm late to the party on this one, but DAMN! Watched this last night and I have not taken a pounding like that in a while! That last ~hour is just absolutely insane for LFE/audio! LFE fest for sure! I voted 5 and rent, but I am planning on trying to find a cheap used copy at some point.
  6. Movie was terrible IMO, but that ~15 minute stretch toward the end was a LOT of LFE fun! It was painful sitting through this film though for me.
  7. Same here! Saw it last night and me and the GF both thought it was excellent. Bass was weak in our theater, but I am hoping it was just the theater.
  8. ST 2009 is one of my favorite audio tracks. Wish STID would have had the same sound design as the 2009 film.
  9. I wasn't all that impressed with this audio track for whatever reason. It reminded me of STID in the fact that it was just so LOUD, LOUD, LOUD which is reinforced by the dynamics score. At least it is a clean loud I suppose unlike STID.
  10. Thanks Max and looks like I was wrong on SA to some degree. Must have been the lacking dynamics that was leaving me a bit luke warm with this one.
  11. I thought Salvation had a better overall audio track compared to this film. I thought TG, as far as the movie itself goes was pretty bad. One watch was plenty for me and glad I rented!
  12. Thanks for all the graphs Max! Any chance you could graph San Andreas at some point? Not that the bass is anything special (it's LOUD, but not that deep subjectively), but I am more curious to see how bad this track clips (if it does). I found the audio on this one to be harsh to some degree and the overall sound design reminded me of STID which is not really a good thing! Track just seemed LOUD and compressed to my ears, but I could be wrong which is why I am curious to see it graphed if you get time at some point. No worries if not.
  13. Well said and agreed! I have to say, as great as the sound/bass was, the big star of the show here IMO was the PQ.....WOW! Cant remember the last time I was this impressed with PQ on my screen.
  14. The new Terminator was a one and done for me. Bass was good, but not exceptional. Glad I rented.
