Into the Storm (2014)



Got persuaded to go see a Saturday afternoon matinee and since it was a Dolby Atmos presentation figured it would showcase the surround sound effectively...and it did. This is likely the most enveloping soundfield I've heard yet in Atmos.

The movie itself is lacking in originality, if you've seen Twister you've basically seen this. Panned by the critics it features annoying shaky cam with a sort of found footage type storyline although it's not always shot that way. It seemed targeted at teen audiences or the millennium crowd with its "I can shoot this film on my cellphone" accent.

As the movie poster suggests this movie features a fair number of physically impossible stunts and pseudo-science. It seemed like the last hour of the movie had non-stop tornado action and destruction. The "Are you not entertained?" phrase came to mind.

If you're into Dolby Atmos go see - otherwise wait for the rental to arrive.

Shocking. I just knew this one was going to be an Oscar contender (best pic, director, actor, etc...full sweep).

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

I don't know which part of me was more insulted by this movie...the trained NWS storm spotter/chaser part or Jeep driving off-roading part. This movie was dreadful. It made Twister look like Citizen Kane. Glad I used a free pass for this, which the manager refunded to me because of some projector issues.

The most laughable part was when...

-100 out of 5 stars.

How was the sound/bass? Based on the comments I've read around, it seems to be really good?

Darn, at least have one flying around like "Cows"

OK, what other animals are flying in this? What's the point with flying animals?
