If I may, I'd also like to add some suggestions that might make your list. The first being a scene from the amazing spiderman (I believe near the end of chapter 13) where the lizardman encounters a swat team, it has decent length, depth, and amplitude from what I could perceive. Actually two more scenes just from the first amazing spiderman, when he first gets his powers and is sleeping on a train (very strong frequency sweeps). Also the ending scene where he slingshots himself from a crane arm (just for the depth, seems even stronger than the dragon crash in httyd). Also the first dragon fire scene from beowulf is pretty intense. The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy also has a nice extended bass scene when the vogon ships first arrive to earth (their low frequency droning lasts for a while). And though perhaps not as long or as deep, near the ending of cloverfield when the monster fully reveals itself has some pretty high amplitude bass (though the alley encounter scene might definitely prove to be a more worthy choice). Forgive me for the spastic nature of this post, your work is wonderful and these scenes are merely suggestions.
Interesting posts. I'd like to further clarify that the nature of the clipping in the godzilla scene I described earlier, and the first foghorn played in war of worlds is different from other harsh clipping in other film soundtracks (which may even make use of said clipping for artistic purposes). The clipping experienced in godzilla and war of the worlds during the scenes I have mentioned may also have been an artistic liberty, but they are much more distinct in their clipping then most any other film I have heard (where one needs to look at actual graphs to confirm their suspicions of clipping resulting in a harsh soundtrack). The godzilla and war of world scenes I mentioned literally break apart into a static infused mess (even at low listening levels and lasts merely a second or two). These scenes however are unique in either film and may perhaps be the only instances they are heard throughout the film, as we hear more foghorns in war of worlds with rich deep bass and zero audible aberrations. Godzilla also has more female muto cries without the same type of harsh sound as the bomb delivery scene cries.
It may have just been my copy, but I am curious to hear whether anyone else detected any egregious audible clipping on the dts 1.5mb track of godzilla. An example of this I have found to be (spoilers) when the male muto first meets up with the female and delivers the bomb to her, some of her cries seem have harsh clipping baked into the soundtrack itself. The effect seems similiar to the dvd dts track on war of the worlds after the emergence scene where the tripod first lets out it's foghorn cry and very obvious/audible clipping is heard in what I presume to be the center channel track. To double check it not simply being my gear I lower the volume from -10 to -35 and still detect the clipping sounds. Simply curious, if it is to much of a bother I totally understand.
