What's up, everybody? Hope you're having an awesome week. I recently caught a screening of Thor: Ragnarok at our local Dolby Cinema at AMC where Marvel's latest blockbuster is presented in dual 4K laser projection with a million-to-one contrast ratio, Dolby Vision high dynamic range, and Dolby Atmos surround sound (and we haven't even started talking about the super-comfy leather recliners).
In this video, we take viewers through the basics of Dolby Cinema at AMC auditoriums, share our quick thoughts on the movie itself, and dive into the audio and picture quality of this particular premium format presentation.
The short version, for those who don't' have time to watch...
I thought the Movie Itself was a lot of fun and a breath of fresh air for the Thor parts of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's got all the standard superhero action beats balanced with a quirky sense of comedy and good character beats.
The Dolby Vision presentation is quite good and better than most, thanks to its sharpness, excellent highlight details, and vibrant use of color, but it's not quite the best of the best.
Likewise, the Dolby Atmos sound mix is, overall, very good, and I loved Mark Motherbaugh's 80s-style score, but it doesn't quite have the finesse and overhead immersion of Gravity, Mad Max Fury Road, or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
What about you?
Have you seen Ragnarok yet? Were you able to check it out in a Dolby Cinema, IMAX Laser, or some other type of premium format? Let us know about your experience in the comments below!Continue Reading
