    It could be that the large amount of bass in such films are demanding too much from your amp, try turinng all your speakers to small on the amp if you have the option and replaying the scene.

    If the problem persists then look for crossed/touching wires on both speaker and amp end. Just check the obvious, and then take all the connections out (so the amp is as bare as it would be new) and put them in one at a time, i.e. front speakers and a source. Play some material and build it up At the point when the system fails thats probably the culprit. If the problem is still ocurring and either it doesn't seem to be any of the components or it happens if you only have the front speakers, amp and dvd player in then it's probably the amp, as its less likely the speakers are broken.
