Also Tom Cruise didnt have 2 kill that guy that was in the basement with them he could have just calmed him down. Also the way he swurved to miss the lady with the baby, im sorry but in that kind of a setting i would have ran over everybody in my way

Oh you will like the LFE.1 output on this, use caution on this film.

Also it's up for an Academy Award nomination for Best Sound and Sound Effects Editing.

Chapter 6 though to chapter 7 is darn loud, with peaks easily in the 105dbC Weighting for each of the three-screen channels on my JBL sound system.

With LFE.1 at 115dbC Weighting on the JBL 4645 professional cinema
THX sub bass.

Split-surrounds are very engaging, where some sound effects, come to play in vital key moments, and in other parts it's the "John Williams" score taken over on the split-surrounds.

It's not all about the sound. If the story line is really awful, who cares how many awards they win or what kind of ultra-modern state of the art doodads they applied to the film.

But then again you have all that equipment to play with so you can evaluate the sound of each movie:-)

This is actually The Ugly One's cousin. He lives in NYC.

Ashley, I take it you live in a country estate with no near-by neighbors. Thanks for the heads up. My towers with self-powered woofers do a good job, with useable bass down to 30Hz @ about 70dBC. Welcome back.

The answer to the question John' is yes I do have a neighbour that lives above me though her living room is not directly above, except the kitchen, and she is a crazy as they come, so when she plays music with the windows wide open and sound pressure level can be heard for up to 200 hundred feet or more down the alleyway, but I'm not complaining, just stating the facts with use of a SPL db meter, and it never lies.

Anyway I hope the towers can play this awesome mix from the Skywalker Sound team whom have produced a real cracking one since "Saving Private Ryan" and "Titanic", I wish them good luck on February 31st Sunday.

I thought Ashley was using a different calendar, so I did some research. Apparently the closest to Feb. 31 anybody got were the ancient Egyptians. They divided the year into twelve months of thirty days each. Every five years they caught up by adding five days. Those five days were an excuse for a big party.

k now i'm really Mr. Johnny come lately in that 2night was the 1st time ever i saw this movie since it just came out on HBO

From what i posted in other threads u all may remember i dont care none of tom cruise' movies cause they ALWAYS put him as Mr. Tough hero status .
U must realise they put him in this movie as a crowd puller & TADAAAAA ! he came out alive !.

Now honestly i admit this movie was very suspenseful & had u wondering wtf is this really happens in real life then we r all screwed ! - storyline was ok & catchy .

If some of u remember the war of the world tv series on scifi channel (early 90s i believe) then this movie could have been like the prequel 2 the events of that series which i used 2 watch alot .....

haha, that seen was messed up...when the people started clawing on the broken glass and getting blood everywhere...followed by the gun crap. That was one of my most hated scenes of the movie. And yeah, overall it was a pretty horrible show.

Though, I actually went to Universal Studios last summer. They still have the plane crash scene setup where he walks out of the basement of the house and there's the plane sideways with the reporters wandering around. It was an extremely cool setup and incredibly intricate-the size of the scene itself was amazing. I saw it on the studio tour. The coolest part of the trip (as unrelated as this might seem) was we got a VIP pass because my father has a bad back (so he's legally handicapped). There are two lines at Universal Studios, the VIP pass line, and regular line. The VIP lines were only four or five people long while the regular lines were hundreds of people long (The VIP lines are like the Fast pass lines at Disneyland, only better). We got to see all attractions, events, everything except for the fear factor show (we could have, but we were at the Jurassic park ride when it was showing) in one day, with four hours to spare before the park was going to close. I highly recommend the VIP pass if anyone here is going to Universal Studios in the future.

how much $$$ ???

I think it was $20-$40 a person (Don't remember the exact cost). Expensive, I know, but great if you don't like waiting in lines. Because of the expense, most people don't buy it and therfore the VIP lines are always small to nobody being in line.

$140 per person. Great perks, I highly recommend it.
