I don't mind it for films like the Avengers since it is a movie property that isn't being based on a book, if they need two movies that is fine. We saw the same thing with Kill Bill or even the last...

I get amazing precision of placement in my theater with discrete renders all around. But again, I can't do an A/B comparison yet so it is hard to know just how much better Atmos could or couldn't be...

I agree that saying Atmos will be well established and preventing others from stealing their piece of the pie is a bit pre-emptive. Atmos is doing a good job of getting out there but there is still a...

I hear you. I saw this one at the DBX theater in Honolulu which is an Atmos theater. I sat in the sweet spot as well. I thought the mix was decent, but nothing to write home about. I didn't really...
