Just watched Brave with my grandson

I did get a real smile when the witch's cauldron exploded. Not only did the house shake, but I could feel it in my bones.

Feast your eyes...


That's a fun movie. A couple friends and I watched it in the Dobly Atmos Theater in KC. Some ridiculous number of speakers with a unique processing engine that dolby is beta testing. They have speakers all over the ceiling, down the walls, multiple independant subs etc. It was better than normal theater sound - but still I like my own home theater better.

I totally get wanting to watch at home. My HT has spoiled me.

I saw it in a Dolby Atmos theater near San Jose, CA. I was traveling on business and literally found it by accident. The sound was pretty awesome but I have to say that you really didn't get the whole Atmos effect until you heard the Atmos trailer before the film (kinda like the THX fanfare).

I wonder if we'll ever get IMAX + Atmos?

Dolby was done beta testing by the time 'Brave' was released. Since then, a couple more titles mixed in Atmos have come out: 'Taken 2' in early October and 'Chasing Mavericks' a couple weeks ago. Three more films in Atmos due out this year: Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi', Dreamworks' 'Rise of the Guardians' and Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit'.

Three films also announced for next year in Atmos: the Sandra Bullock & George Clooney romantic adventure set in space 'Gravity', Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi epic 'Pacific Rim', which pits giant robots piloted by humans against giant sea monsters rising out of the Pacific ocean, and the J.J. Abrams sequel 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.

IMAX has their own sound system, which is 5.1 channels/speakers for feature films (IMAX documentary short films sometimes add a 6th channel high up on the screen).
