I think I bought my first subwoofer and watched Apocalypse Now back in 1991. The Arc Light scene and everything that follows just blew me away, and I've been addicted to movie bass ever since.

Though there isn't necessarily a lot of LFE in it, the initial transition from the "ghost helo" in the opening to a real world helicopter as Willard wakes and is watching the ceiling fan has a superb transition from electronic, to deep muffled "whoop-whoop," to the overhead echo of the helicopter. A well balanced system shouldn't have any dropouts during the transition (a testament to Walter Murch's superb skills).
