  1. Yeah I saw it at a 15/70 theater as well and missed dialogue on at least 5 scenes. I thought it was well implemented, but I wish it wasn't done. If that's the intent, the intent came through, but I certainly hope that it wasn't accidental or I would have fired every sound mixer on the movie.
  2. max, I did do that, and they basically told me that director's intent is director's intent, and they can't really change something from what the man says. I think the biggest problem for IMAX is what SME mentioned, that identical levels in smaller rooms is not ideal, especially for movies like MoS already mixed with some clipping. They had a regular old Radioshack Digital SPL meter and the max was I think 118.7 dB, or somewhere around there. The director of IMAX told me the loudest ever was Thor, peaking at 120.5 dB! I couldn't imagine hearing that in a small IMAX like most of them now are.
  3. When Man of Steel came out, I saw it in my local LieMax and almost lost my hearing, so I sent a complaint to IMAX. They invited me to the IMAX studio in Santa Monica where I heard about 30 minutes of MoS in their actual theater where Zack Snyder gave the okay. While it was slightly better there, it was still quite harsh and not pleasing to my ears, but I guess that is what happened with MoS, and probably Godzilla, Interstellar, etc in the IMAX release. Every 24 hours, each IMAX individually updates its levels to the preset levels (with some calibration for the individual theater) and then proceeds through the day. Some managers turn down or up the volume if requested, but theoretically every morning the levels should be perfect (according to the okayed levels from the director). I would presume that this means that the Bluray mix is taken from either the IMAX mix or remixed depending on someone's preference, so if an IMAX release is bad, the Bluray will be as well.
  4. What do you think of the statement I read that Nolan intentionally wanted the dialogue muddy so that it would be like it would in real life, where you wouldn't be able to hear if it was too loud. I disagree with it, and hope the clipping wasn't a part of that philosophy.
  5. Can you add The Book of Life? Not sure about the bass, but I was getting some 60 Hz kick and don't know how far down it goes.
  6. Awesome, I was hoping that it might mean a return to form for Marvel! Hopefully the next few will continue the trend.
  7. It's 0 to 1 Hz frequencies that show up on speclab but are basically not reproduceable in any real world setting. I'm sure there's more to it, but I believe that's the jist of it.
  8. I didn't realize that windows has a built in zipper as I downloaded them while waiting for some rendering at work. Same link as before: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bw_669vttaEqMmhZbi1lZ3liUnc&usp=sharing
  9. https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bw_669vttaEqMmhZbi1lZ3liUnc&usp=sharing Let me know if you can't download!
  10. Ah well I just downloaded all the files from Photobucket and I'm going to send them to nube to update and use the sites uploader. Let me know if you want to just email them to him for his use.
  11. nube - Would you rather me download them and zip them up and send you a link that way? It might be easier because they are still labeled when I download them.
  12. Alright, I'm gonna start going through these another day. This is what I have so far: http://imgur.com/a/2eFnd I did Prometheus, Thor, TIH, BLA, WotW and Tron. Let me know if I should do them differently.
  13. Here's what I'm seeing. I may do that tonight when I have nothing to do! Thanks for all your hard work.
  14. Can you do a couple of waterfalls from Oblivion? Specifically I'd like to see the rig explosion at around 28 minutes, the drone battle in the bunker at around 1:30, and the final explosion at around 1:45. I'm not sure of those timestamps as I am not home, but if you see this before I update them, I would like to see those. Edit: scratch that, somehow I completely missed the Oblivion post and assumed everything in the Oblivion thread would be what you have. Thanks!
  15. Can you add F'in Irene just for comparison with LS?
  16. Kind of a weird question: can you add to the list of rated movies which ones you have available as discs, so that we can maybe request certain time stamps to be graphed?
  17. I like your reasoning. The only adjustment I would make is that in case such as the rare one given, I would use the alternate time resolution, just for clarity.
  18. That makes sense about Pain and Gain. It was a lot of midbass for my 23 Hz sub, and it was mostly from music it seemed.
  19. Could you perhaps post graphs from the scenes in the first Ice Age? I'm assuming the mammoths make it?
