Stalingrad (5.1 DTS-HD MA)

Extension - 3 Stars (19Hz)
Dynamics - 5 Stars (28.39dB)

Execution - 3 Stars (by poll)

 

Overall     - 4 Stars

Recommendation - Rent (by poll)

 

Notes:  Near constant DC noise, quite filtered below 30Hz, with some real content below 20Hz drowned out by the tons of big hits from 25-40Hz.  I measured the English-dubbed track.

MI Ghost Protocol, watched it again at your recommendation and it surprised me too, some really great bass moments in that film, worthy of the rating for sure.

Hi all,

Just joined the forum and am really enjoying this topic

I live in Australia and since reading about the 5 star movies I have been trying to track down the movie 9 here with no luck so far

Could someone please give me some details about the movie so i can do a more thorough search ???

Thanks

The quality of 9 really does seem to have slipped past under the radar - excellent story, excellent animation, excellent sound, it's pretty much perfect IMHO :)

Man, I'm glad you posted this, I was going to get the extended edition to get some bass, I would have been so PISSED to be burned twice! This is inexcusable.  I stopped the first Hobbit movie twice to check the sub and cabling, I really thought something was amiss with my system especially because the rest of the sound seemed pretty good.

Its amazing how many times I think somethings not quite right when watching a movie for the first time. Almost every time it's just the movie but to be sure I have to whack in some known content to confirm everythings A ok.

I looked but maybe I missed it.  Is Aliens BR on here anyplace.  Some parts seem to have a bit of some bass, probably not that much but the ending seemed really weak.  I was wondering if anybody has looked at this.  I have the extended version which is a better movie overall in my mind.  But I don't have any time stamps.  I was just wondering if anybody has done that movie. 

Thanks
