Well I finally watched Dark Knight Rises last night and it was great!!!!! going to watch it again this weekend
Well, I'm much more behind the times than you on this -- I watched it two weekends ago.

I just have to comment about the soundtrack on this thing. I have never heard a soundtrack with an LFE channel as aggressive as this one. From the moment the larger plane came into the scene on the first sequence, I knew that I'd be in for a treat. And then the flying batmobile (whatever it's called), was even deeper and more powerful. I heard rattles in my room that I'm quite certain I've never heard before I think I'll be watching this one again soon (after starting from the beginning of the trilogy).

That "bat plane" sequence where he launches it out of the ally is a sub strainer for sure. Graphs have it at an oscillating frequency shooting all the way down to SIX HERTZ!

6 Hz?! I know that my in-room response drops off pretty quickly below the upper 20s Hz, and I was still surprised at that scene. I can only imagine what it would be like with subs that have some in-room output at single-digit frequencies. Time for a new pair of subs I guess . . . Curse this hobby!

How is that possible?

Did you see any of the other Chris Nolan-helmed Batman films in the trilogy?
