  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Curious to see San Andreas measured. Watched last night and I might be wrong, but it reminded me of STID and not in a good way. The whole track just seemed LOUD and the bass extension was weak. The bass that was there was LOUD and hit in the right spots I thought, but it was a fatiguing audio track similar to STID to my ears. Cant speak to the Atmos effects as I just watched the core 7.1 TrueHD track.
  8. So what is the verdict on ALVH DTS-HD-MA track on the blu ray? I did a quick search and is it really only a 1 star for level? Looks like Bosso got a different result......what was the verdict on this one? Thanks.
  9. Agree with the last two posts! Interstellar was a fantastic HT experience. I didn't even notice the clipping (except maybe in the launch sequence, but it fit right in with the sound effect to me) and certainly nowhere near something like Godzilla. No issues hearing dialog here watching at reference.
  10. How is the quantity of bass in this film? Leaning more toward bass fest type or no? I might rent it tonight.
  11. Tempted to buy this one since the 3d version is $17 on Amazon. Anyone here watch this in 3d by chance and if so is the 3d good? Sounds like the audio is a winner at least and I will probably enjoy the movie.
