Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

By leaps and bounds it is the best sounding Disc of any Format that I have ever heard. I am so impressed with just how clear the dialogue is amidst the cacophony of the destruction of Chicago by mutant Chevrolet Product Placement vessels.
Cheers,
JJ

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

Just watched this last night was completely blown away by the audio. Its such an awesome feeling when the transformers change for vehicles to autobots and back as you get to hear that wonderful change happening throughout your room. During the movie all i could hear was my wife screaming at me to turn it down. Story line was not as good as the first and maybe on par with the second but the visuals and audio were able to keep me in there.

This was a blind buy for me. I bought it for the audio and boy did it deliver. Felt like I was in the middle of the action. Video was stunning.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the review and I must say that I had chills just watching the opening scene of the Paramount stars flying around in surround! Is there a difference in the audio on the DVD vs the Blue-ray? I only ask as I have an older projector that doesn't support HD so the only thing that I don't want to miss is better audio...

Thanks!

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

Nice! hope to hear the difference tonight! On the same topic: is there a website that shows the disc info? Since I only rent or borrow movies it would be great to know which version to look for.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

While I haven't seen the Blu-Ray version the DVD sounds great! I agree with Dale's 10 star rating of the audio several posts back. There is significant surround activity and the LFE had my pants flapping with my new Submersive HP.

More along Dale's thinking I believe it might be useful to have another level past the current 5 gold star rating for audio. It seems a lot of movies get 4 1/2's and 5's but there should be special 5 Platinum star club (or something) for those movies that go above and beyond like this movie, Tron, Xmen First Class and Thor - basically the demo worthy material flicks.

Btw, I've been really enjoying everyone's reviews lately and appreciate the time you put into these reviews. I think we've had a very good year for movies (at least the action ones!).

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Blu-Ray Review

I totally agree with Infrasonic and what many have reflected, here. The sound is so far above many that have and deserve 4-5 stars. This has to be the best use of 7.1 surround that I have ever heard and hope that others will follow their lead. It certainly made me glad that I have a decent suround system.
I've enjoyed so many of the reviews here and have come to depend on them to find the right movies to watch. So, Thanks!!
