Nice... I still haven't seen the latest one, which one did you think was the best out of the first two movies?
I felt that the first one was slightly better than the second.

Re: Underworld Awakening - Blu-ray Review

I watched UA the other night (on DVD) and I have to say I really enjoyed it. My main complaint was the CGI used on the Lycan's seemed very dated.

The movie itself was what I expected - a fun ride with not much thought necessary. The sound was great with LFE up the yin-yang, some of it easily dipping into the teens (Hz) and good use of the surrounds. I thought they did a pretty good job with the sound mix and it didn't seem as "boomy" as a movie like Thor.

While it won't be nominated for Best Picture it's a fun movie to watch especially for those that enjoy a lively bass-head-approved mix.

agreed on the CGI. I was VERY disappointed that they made the switch to CGI from the practical effects used with the Lycans in the other 3 movies. it was very jarring to see the difference

Re: Underworld Awakening - Blu-ray Review

I did find the bass very strong but in my set-up, it never came across as boomy or bloated. It was actually very deep and I never felt that my sub was booming or having issues controlling it. I feel the low score of the audio is a diservice to what I think is an actual good audio recording.

Re: Underworld Awakening - Blu-ray Review

I feel the first two are better, if this one was longer with a better story-line it could had surpassed them. I would rate this 79/100 . My favorite is Underworld rise of the Lycans Sadly this one does not live up to that amazing movie. Audio was rather good I will admit, but that is typically of most movies these days.

Re: Underworld Awakening - Blu-ray Review

yeah, this movie had some fun action, but was nowhere near the other 3 in quality. hopefully they don't phone it in for the next one like they did this one
