Default Favorite 'immersive' mixes on 4K UHD

What are your favorite mixes that were created exclusively for 4K UHD disc that did not get released in commercial movie theaters as such?

this is an ongoing list, but so far these have impressed me:

- Jumanji (Dolby Atmos)
- The Fifth Element (Dolby Atmos)
- Ratatouille (Dolby Atmos)
- The Dark Crystal (Dolby Atmos)
- The Lost World: Jurassic Park (DTS-X)
- Black Hawk Down (Dolby Atmos)
- Blade Runner (Dolby Atmos)
- King Kong (DTS-X)

I don't have a massive Atmos collection, and sometimes I'm left wondering what the point of the remix was, but ones where I've noticed definite impact are:

Bridge on the River Kwai - rain sounded like it was coming from above even on my modest Atmos-enabled speakers.

Harry Potter - several scenes where the whole configuration was used for a fluid bubble of sound where you weren't hearing individual speakers panning, you felt like things were rushing around you in all directions. IIRC the keys flying around scene (in the first movie?) was probably the most convincing 3D audio effect I've yet heard on my system.

The trick is in the remixing I think. Shove a few sounds into the Atmos data and the result is meh. Use them as a more careful extension to a cohesive whole and it comes alive.

Definitely some winners mentioned already, so adding to the list...

Bourne Legacy - (DTS X) Yup, the one without Matt Damon. All of the series is solid, but this is the best.

Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban - (DTS X) The whole series is a winner, but this one stood out a bit more.

Knowing - (Atmos) This one checks all the boxes.

Matrix - (Atmos) No brainer. Original mix was a classic demo. This one takes it to the next level, no pun intended.

The Patriot - (Atmos) Great movie. Great mix.

Robin Hood - (DTS X) Something about arrows cutting through your room.

Saving Private Ryan - (Atmos) Not the best sounding WWII movie in my mind as I have to give that to Fury, but this new mix does the movie justice.

I can't believe I forgot 'The Matrix' there's one instance where not only do you see the laserblast but the aural illusion of the blast sound crossing across from the screen and through the room is highly creative and proves that object based mixing can achieve some pretty cool sound effects.

You can add Apocalypse Now to the list. Possibly the best job I have seen going back to an older movie and reworking the video and audio.

Great sounding movies for sure, but Dubstar was looking for movies which were not necessarily released in Atmos / DTS X in theaters, and received those mixes for their UHD releases. At least that is how I interpreted the original question.

The opening scene of Blade Runner in atmos (the nightscape fire in the eye) sounds so good that I regularly go back to it once or twice a week just to make myself smile.
