Wow - 90 minutes? Normally, I only see that length with animated movies and comedies.
I was pleased. Hard to sit thru 2 hours with no cocktail :-)

On the audio side (I saw it in Atmos) the surrounds were utilized almost constantly but I don't think this will be an LFE monster when released on BR.
I'm jealous. There's an atmos theater in Chicago, but it's on south side (not such a nice area) and I live on North Shore. Too much of a hike. That said: I wouldn't trade ATMOS for IMAX on this particular movie

Have you tried the Real3D version of any movies? I think they go hand and hand with the Dolby Atmos. Very impressive and much better than IMAX as far as 3D goes.

Yes for this movie IMAX is the way to go but for most movies since I enjoy the audio side of things more than anything I prefer Atmos. I forgot to mention I didn't see it in 3D and it was still very impressive (had free tickets). I'll probably watch it again in IMAX 3D at some point.

They are two different technologies.

I see. seems to be polarization that's different. I didn't notice any crosstalk, which I understand is the main reason why circular (Real3D) is touted to be better. I think the size of the IMAX screen really helps project the magnitude of space.

Regardless of technology, one of the few movie experiences worth leaving the house for :-)

I agree it just might be worth the trip. I may forgo my Real3D/Atmos preference for the IMAX just for the immersion of the larger screen.

Saw Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters and I thought it was really good. I would recommend this movie!

I liked that movie also, some folks didn't, but different strokes.


I watched Blu-ray of American Graffiti again , since I'm a older guy, I enjoy the movie because it brings back memories of what I was doing back then.

I'm from Colorado, Where I started out with nothing...and I still have most of it.
