One Dolby tech to rule them all!





No seriously. Good work Dolby, although having a dozen of speaker hanging from the ceiling and sides might get a little cramped for the average consumer but for the movie theater it sound like a great way of getting some more customers.

Having direct sound intentionally coming from the surround speaker do sound a bit counterproductive though.. At least in my opinion.

No, because there is no standard 9.1 theatrical format. And actually, most films use 5.1. I was going to say that 90% of the 7.1 films are animated films, but that's not actually true anymore.

Just watched Thor: The Dark World in Dolby Atmos. The sixth movie I've watched in Dolby Atmos this year.

The six movies I've watched were
1. Iron Man 3
2. Star Trek Into Darkness
3. Pacific Rim
4. Elysium
5. Gravity (in 3D)
6. Thor The Dark World (3D)

Thor had its moments. But not quite as extensive as Gravity. I think you won't be missing much watching this in 7.1.

I'm watching Ender's Game next week in Dolby Atmos.
