  1. Ah I see, so do you think that is where the 3-5hz content is mostly? Probably to make the audience as shit scared as Tom Cruise was trying to get to the helicopter hahaha!
  2. I checked this out last night: a very good mix. It seemed to closely resemble the franchise's previous offering: Rogue Nation. Very little clipping from what I could hear with moderately loud levels and very good extension. There were several moments when I felt tingles in my head due to the bass pressure. The lightning strike was the biggest hit for me personally. A highly recommended purchase.
  3. Hello, everyone. Just thought that you all deserved some clarity on the issue. This recent spate of comments that I left were done during a short phase of ill health (a psychologically manic phase that lasted for one day only) and that now that I am almost completely healthy (and explained what has happened) that I would provide some encouragement to you all. I am fine. I apologise for any distress or confusion that my comments may or did cause to anyone viewing this forum. Please forgive me if they did. As for The Lion King, well... hahahaha. I think that the trailer is almost perfectly constructed and that it will be an enjoyable film to experience, however I will; not go to London to see it, pop into the local to view it and that probably buy it on BD and BEQ it. Thanks everyone who read and will read this. I hope that all of you have a good day. Cheers.
  4. Definitely going to see Mowgli and The Lion King at the Waterloo BFI Imax cinema in London when they come out. It has the biggest screen in the UK and from what I've personally heard (literally, when I saw Jurassic World there!) the best sound system in Britain. They use massive 18" ported subs of course (flat to 20hz with everything below filtered out) but at least they actually playback the LFE channel and the bass content in the front channels. Every other cinema south-east of London where I live do not have subwoofers for the LFE channel, nor do they have adequate bass response from the front channels. As for the surrounds, they usually have JBL 8340s which can do minus 10dbc at 40hz but no bass management with extra subs as per Dolby Atmos specs I'm afraid. Besides, I purchased four JBL 8330s simply for the novelty factor of actually owning real cinema speakers, and I would not recommend buying cinema surrounds. Cinema front speakers aren't too bad though as long as they are bass managed. End of rant.
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CbLXeGSDxg Jesus Christ I hope Disney wisen the F up and sort out their movie audio tracks, because this film's bass better be as epic as this trailer is!!!!
  6. John Wick Chapter 2 anyone? I checked it out last night and it was pretty damn good! Not much in the way of sub 20hz effects, however the gunshots and music had excellent slam and volume. Also, I think that it is a better and more enjoyable film than the first and one the best action films period. I would definitely recommend checking it out to any bass heads or fans of action movies in general
  7. Absolutely agree here, Avengers Infinity War also seemed to be lacking about ten decibels in dynamic range, whilst also having fairly quiet dialogue and being sharply filtered. Disappointing...
  8. Speaking of disappointing, Underworld: Blood Wars and Resident Evil The Final Chapter are also filtered. A letdown after the franchises' previous offerings.
  9. https://www.avforums.com/review/saving-private-ryan-dts-edition-2-disc-dvd-review.1513 the DTS track here reveals itself to be more aggressive than it's Dolby counterpart: LFE in the many battle scenes has more extension, with the effect of it feeling “punchier”, extending those couple of extra hertz lower. Not sure about the veracity of this source but it seems to indicate that the track is less filtered. It's got to be better than the crap 22hz extension on the BD!
  10. Another good Gibson bass flick is We Were Soldiers. Well done sound for the time however, like Saving Private Ryan, the BD is filtered while the DVD is not. A very cheap buy on DVD.
  11. Can't find any details, I would guess Speclab? But I guess their methodology must be different since they give LOTR 1 and 3 five stars and Iron Man four and a half! Madness! Apart from 1 or 2 hits in the final battle, the only decent ULF portion in JW was when the jeep crashes through a gate hahaha! You have massive dinosaurs on screen and the only strong stuff is used on a jeep! Shocking...
  12. http://www.avsforum.com/forum/113-subwoofers-bass-transducers/1333462-new-master-list-bass-movies-frequency-charts-776.html Their Jurassic World graph is very different to the one here. Was it redone for the 3D edition?
  13. Mad Max: Fury Road has won two Oscars for Sound Editing and Sound Mixing beating The Martian. Any thoughts on this? Personally, I thought that the surround work for Fury Road was superb but The Martian beats it in the bass department for me.
  14. Pity about Spectre, Skyfall was such a good mix. The Wolfman and Spiderman 3 are decent ulf contenders. Could someone look into these please? Not sure about spiderman 1 and 2 though...
  15. Do you have those graphs? It would be very interesting to see those. The Jp track seems to be completely infrasonic and perhaps a little low in level in terms of bass, probably to match the ultra high frequency content above 20khz, though the sound mixer never mentioned the bass when he described the 'Hypersonic Effect' on the disc! He missed a real treat there as Infrasonic bass causes greater physiological changes/reactions in humans as opposed to ultrasonic high frequencies since infrasonics are produced during earthquakes and in the roars of lions and tigers which really get the heart racing!
