what's your fav...

Post by rolereversal » Thu Mar 20, 2008 10:11 pm

movie mix? Hard for me to pin just one down.
I really enjoy the pixar stuff for foley like, Toy Story ...then there's Chicken Run.
Just listened to the last Harrry Potter last week-pretty great FX sounds.
This weekend we will watch -No Country For Old Men. That is suppose to be a great mix as it has no music in the whole thing.

"War of the Worlds"...where the Tripods start coming out of the ground has the most earth-shattering bass I've ever heard...must be around 15 hz!

...and you're right, the Incredibles has an "Incredible" mix...

Don't forget the "Matrix" seris....also LOTR is awesome.

There's only one - Apocalypse Now Redux.

The sound mixing on that film is amazing.

all above mentioned are killer(esp like the first matrix and TG).
i also really like black hawk down(DTS). first time i ran this with my ALIIIs and 18" bass bins at 3/4 had people up and down the street looking out windows and standing on their lawns trying to figure out where the shots were from.
dinosaurs(sp?)...yes the disney movie(one of my daughters faves) also scores very high(again in DTS) on the list of best sounding films,imho.

remember back when you first saw jurassic park in the theatre...THX is born..
get the DTS home edition, warm up them amps and watch the ripples in your drink match the ones in the puddles on the screen when T-Rex goes a stompin!
.....a VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER.

I am slowly going CRAZY 123456 switch..CRAZY going slowly am I 654321 switch.

I say we hook up the CF WALL OF SOUND for the fronts, several sets of ALS for the rear and surrounds, every sub that shows and crank it up. What's that about 15K+ watts of power. Should be loud enough :-)

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

I hope that's not a DLP or a Plasma--if it is, you'd better be sure to have you r extended warranty in place before you start driving. Te trip alone will most likely damage either of those kinds of TVs unless you pack it in about 2' of bubble wrap and foam...

But if you have a high-def big screen you are willing to bring to CF-08, let us know--I'll bring my Oppo and my Sony BDP-S1 BluRay player, and somebody else can bring a PS3, and we'll have a HiDef showdown... ;)
