Don't get me wrong, it was good. I guess I heard too many good things about it beforehand, and it seems like most people are in fact glowing about it. I'm somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars on it (out of 5). Probably 4.
Im closer to 5, but I went into it with open arms, so to speak. I couldn't help imagining the sound at home on BD. Our local theatre is only 2yrs old and it's nice, but the sound for me seemed boring. I kind of expected more goin on around me. It was loud, and full, but imaging(some things were good) wasn't good. I don't run my surrounds any hotter than 1, so it's not like I'm used to an exaggerated experience either. Bass extension was disappointing too.(but I understand this) It looks different too, but this effect I liked. I thought there was an extra touch of realism, and there seemed to be a "gopro" vibe to some of it. Kind of like the handheld feel in the hunger games/catching fire.
Jbrax, go forth and enjoy! I think bkeeler was distracted by thought of you and his garage door code! ...I kid, of course. Sorry bkeeler, I couldnt resist.

Yeah, Atmos is the only draw to theaters for me anymore. In most respects (other than sheer screen size) I prefer the experience at home. (I need a projector.) I was a bit disappointed in the bass extension too, but chalked it up to subs that just don't dig that deep. I also find theaters to sound a bit too bright for my tastes, and that was the case here too. Anyway, I will definitely be catching it on blu ray. With a sub capable of < 20 Hz extension :-). JBrax never PM'd me so I guess my sub is still there!

I agree. Screen size is pretty much the draw for me too. I think I remember reading that many commercial theater subs roll off a little higher. I don't know for sure, but I've never been in a theater with bass like at home. I mentioned projector a couple times. Got shot down like snot lout! Maybe jbrax will pm you when he's done! ...he's got connections you know!

I would imagine that most subs in theaters are high-passed or just roll off early by design. Filling a room that size with ULF has got to be expensive.

However, back in December when I saw Catching Fire at the Atmos theater at the Barrywoods in Kansas City, wow that was impressive bass. It literally shook the concrete floor beneath my feet on many ocassions. They had a couple of really big boxes flown from the ceiling that must have been subs. Sweet!

Anyway I think I am derailing the thread here a bit ...

Wife n I watched lone survivor the other night. All I could remember was I wanted to see it, and lots of y'all liked it. WOW! The scenes falling down the mountain were super intense(as were others). I wonder how they captured those. Really enjoyed this movie. It reminds me of why I have such respect for our men and women in uniform. Jbrax, thank you for your service.
I appreciate that and you're welcome. My service was nowhere near what those men did though.

Nah, I'm actually good on subs now. Wouldn't even know where to put another one.

AMC Prime is the best sound I've ever heard.

Yeah that was an AMC theater. Best sound I've heard in a theater too.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Monument Men and Joe.
Monument Men was ok, not exciting really. Joe was good but a weak plot overall, it really didn't go anywhere or explain what was up with Joe.
