Color me an idiot, but I cannot find your review. I did a search and what have you but no luck. Can you do a link ??
lol, it was the last review that went up before the R-rated movie restriction went into effect on the site, so it's in the thread graveyard as it got purged in the first wave.

Thank You Mike, I did not know that restriction was in place.
I should read the instructions for the review page a little closer before the Bama Eyes stare me into oblivion. :hide:

Did I make a mistake by posting information about that movie ?? If so I will delete right away.

Not at all. Discussion of R-rated films is fine its just promotion of them through reviews is restricted in an effort to keep it family friendly

All Is Lost has phenomenal surround sound. It really places you right into the movie along with Robert Redford. It's a bit slow at times and there isn't a lot of dialog but the sound is amazing. There's also a bit of bass for the bass junkies.

So no more reviews of any movie with an R rating? That is a bit disappointing as there are so many wonderfully done movies that can achieve that rating fairly easily.

I did see Need For Speed today.
And I think that will be a great movie to see on home cinema.
Movie itself was not the best...

But there was much sound effects, and much deep bass everywhere in the movie :)
Cant wait to get it on BR

My vote goes to the Dark Knight for explosions and LFE effects. A close second is the Lord of the Rings movies for their great music and LFE effects.

Always pull out my Bluray of "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" when I want to demo the system ... from the initial attack out of the mists, and the sound of the boat being shredded by canon and bullets, to the later Cello playing sequence (YoYoMa off screen), there is a lot to like .
Also like Skyfall - the Train Crash sequence is amazing... (as the final attack on the Skyfall estate) - both are pretty good ...

Excellent call on Master and Commander, the creaking of the wood just before the ship is spotted in the fog.
The train crash is another great crash scene, which I would rate under the crash scene from Super 8. That is a great demo scene for LFE!

I like the Bourne Identity movies for showing off surround.

Have you seen Lone Survivor? Excellent use of the horizontal sound field.
Yes I have that one too, and it is excellent. When I picked up the Bourne collection I was shocked as to how good the surround was on it hence the recommendation. :T

Maybe I need to get those lined up for the weekend. I have not seen them a quite some time. Thanks for the info.

I just re-watched Star Trek 2009 with my new setup, and heard stuff I didn't hear before.

Surround is very well done, for example, water droplets when aboard the Romulan ship, air sucking out when there a hull breach, the "Star Trek" ping sound bouncing around in the opening scene.

I like to use that opening scene when I test things on my system. All the way to the Trek logo and booming drums!

I do remember after getting all my speakers hooked up into my new receiver, that I noticed sound out of my highs and wides. The sound field was engaged all around me, and made me glad that I got a Marantz! Good call on the 2009 Star Trek

Rambo (the new latest one). Has awesome sound. It works the subs and all the speakers for that matter. My surrounds sound really good with that movie. The explosions, 50 cal, etc. Sounded awesome.
