I will add one. Atomic Blonde! It is in DTS:X but / and sounds amazing. The entire movie.
There is a huge thread on this topic (and not just limited to Atmos in the subject line; it also is for DTS:X and Auro-3D and many like to talk about titles that upmix really well with Neural X as well as the discover them) at Audioholics. It's a pain to do both when so few seem to give a crap here about the topic (compare 2 pages here to 90 pages there on the subject). I mean I posted that list above 10 months ago and nothing here. There's probably been 30 pages since then over there.
I will say recently I've found that Shazam!
had pretty good sound in Atmos. The Meg
(giant shark movie) had fantastic underwater all around and above effects. Believe it or not, Smurfs The Lost Village
also had great sound (upmixed and in Atmos). Serenity
's DTS:X remix wasn't too shabby neither was The Quick and the Dead
for an old movie upgraded to Atmos (way better than the Keaton Batman movie and Christopher Reeve Superman movie, both of which sounded worse than the 5.1 versions save a few areas. The same is true of Labyrinth's Atmos soundtrack. It seemed they were trying to "honor" the original Dolby (~Pro Logic) soundtrack or something. I see it as doing things half-arse. Why even bother? Either do Atmos or do not do Atmos. There is no try.
also has a good Atmos track. Come to think about it, Mission Impossible Fallout
has a fantastic Atmos soundtrack, especially the helicopter scenes near the end (I'm just looking at a pile of BD cases I haven't put away from the past year that I dumped to the whole house WiFi server). It was much better than Rogue Nation, which I felt had much weaker Atmos (not just overhead, but surround in general). Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol is only 7.1, but it's PERFECT 7.1 and upmixes quite well with Neural X (I prefer it to Rogue Nation's Atmos track).
