Blade Runner 2049 is my favorite bass movie as of now: combination of raw output but also detail in the bass (I like some of the "drops" as he travels in the hovercraft/car, they have some layers to them rather than just boom, if that makes sense).
You most certainly have picked the right one. My dad seemed mighty proud. After the movie ended, he just sat there staring at the screen, processing what he had just experience. After some time, he said “Matthew, I’ve only seen trailers (referring to demo clips) in this theater so far—I never knew the theater could do all of THAT!”
The pride I felt was indescribable. Your dad will feel the same....the baby whose diapers he once changed is now capable of building a theater capable of THIS experience.
Now, I don’t know how much testing you’ve done with your theater, but one word of advice: if you haven’t yet sought out rattles in your room yet, definitely do so before your dad comes. I had. G2G last year, and while preparing for it, one demo clip in particular—from A Quiet Place—had bass so intense (and I had the volume at 5 above reference and run a 5db shelf on frequencies below 30Hz), my equipment room door started rattling. I never bothered using the fancy door seals on that door like I did with the entry/exit doors because the equipment room is within the soundproofed shell, but I had to go grab weather stripping from Home Depot and apply it to the equipment room door jamb to prevent the door from rattling against the jamb. If you have rattles, this movie will identify them.
