    I really enjoyed this, thought it was very good... Do you really think it was that bad or did I take you wrong? :confused:

    Omitted from that list is Event Horizon. There are some awesome LFEs in the film's opening.

    At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious Lord of The Rings -either flavour - has some excellent LFE

    Hmm... nah, not "bad" as such - definitely not in the same category as Godzilla (if I gave that impression!). Perhaps it was all the hype from Stateside, or the mood I was in when I first watched it but I thought it was mediocre at best.

    I admire the audacity in making Hanks' character quite a sombre, uninteresting chappie and the very, very slow pace of it all but to be quite honest I was pretty horrified by the ending and that spoilt it for me. The beginning of the film is great and watching Hanks struggle to survive is captivating - not alot to criticise about his performance as usual - but film sort of stops abruptly after he leaves the island. I think they should have made it three hours and got more of a reaction from people "back home" at the end. :-\

    i don't mean to be rude

    but how many more times is this question going to be asked?

    it seems like a fortnightly question along with

    where to buy R1 disks
    how can I compare DVDs from different regions
    Import duty

    Why not have some kind of sticky thread at the top with all these common questions and links to the various threads

    just a suggestion

    T2 in DTS has the best base out of all the one's i've tried. The Bit where the T-800 first encounters the T-1000 and fires his shotgun, the air being created by the sub nearly nocked me off my bed.:D

    Planet of the apes is wikid for bass effects and surround effects, it is almost terrifying when he crash lands on that random planet and explosions make you jump throughout the film, :) .

    Blade 2 without a doubt. When the Blood Pack first enter the House of Pain and some kicking dance music comes on this is just awesome. Check it out !!

    Executive Decision R1 is still has the best LFE soundtrack out. The bass is constant and very low.
