Best 3D Immersive Sound I've heard so far in extracted/matrixed 9.1.6 (bypasses the DTS:X 11-channel limit). I've got 120+ titles and so this is limited at the moment as I haven't watched most of them at home yet.

1> Jumanji (Original Movie) (Dolby Atmos) - Just unbelievable, especially considering it's an older title with a new soundtrack mix. From mosquitos buzzing right over your head to a stampede through the room, almost anywhere a sound can go, it does go. This is by far the best Atmos title I've heard yet for sound, better than Blade Runner (either one) and better than The Matrix.

2> Crimson Peak (DTS:X) - Movie with haunted house things going on. Sounds come from everywhere. Subtle sounds like drips overhead even. Like the movie or not, it's darn impressive sounding and along with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the most impressive DTS:X soundtrack for overhead use.

3> Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (DTS:X) - All the Harry Potter movies are supposed to be impressive in DTS:X. I've watched a few so far and this one was particularly good for sound effects with the Dementors flying overhead in numerous scenes and the branch of the Whomping Willow literally passing right through you (at least with Wides placed between the front and side surrounds; someone in the room jumped when it swung right towards the screen as it was holographic sounding).

4> Red Tails (Auro-3D) - You want planes flying overhead, this is the movie! Planes just going everywhere in the room overhead from above the front mains going left to right through the center height speaker (if you have one; phantom if you don't) to front to back through the room and every other direction. This movie makes the case for Auro-3D's survival as a format. There is currently no Atmos version I'm aware of so it's Auro or nothing.

5> Blade Runner 2049 (Dolby Atmos & Auro-3D versions) - I have both Atmos and Auro 3D versions; they're actually quite similar sounding believe it or not. Either way, incredible soundtrack to go with the best movie (IMO) of 2017. The original movie in Atmos probably does an even better job with overhead flying car effects, but this soundtrack is so much cleaner and aggressive sounding.

I just got ALL the Jurassic Park movies in DTS:X (I've watched Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom so far in 3D with DTS:X) so it'll be interesting to hear what they did with them. Fallen Kingdom had plenty of great moments, but it did seem like they didn't use the rear surround speakers for ambience much (used much more for "action" moments). That wasn't the case with movies like Crimson Peak where the ambience was non-stop everywhere.

I got Fast and the Furious (original movie) in DTS:X and I'm torn because the soundtrack was awesome sounding, but it didn't make a lot of use of the overheads (it was a car race movie, after all and before they started doing cars dropped out of airplanes and the like).

I watched Annihilation in Atmos. Lots of weird sound effects (synthesized) all over the place, but less impressive for the rest of the sounds at at the time. Jumanji impressed me far more.

The worst movie I heard in Atmos so far was Labyrinth. It appeared to use the front heights to a fair extent, but the side/rear surrounds and overheads mostly contained reverb-type ambience save for certain key scenes. Compared to Jumanji's retrofit, it was disappointing, IMO. I've heard better movies with 5.1 sound even.

I've had to choose between 2D with Atmos and 3D without (often just 5.1 even) and that was the case with The Meg in 3D. Neural-X did a GREAT job enhancing it, but I just got a Zidoo and a 5TB drive to store my 3D collection (currently at around 140 movies) so I will be remuxing a couple dozen (25 I think to be exact) to use Atmos/X/Auro-3D with the 3D versions. That should be interesting once it's up and running.

I'm currently looking at adding rear wides as well (11.1.6). I'm just debating whether to do Logic steered extraction or matrixed (couple of plusses and minuses to both methods for extra side surrounds) and I'm awaiting my last chair on order for the theater upgrade (6 permanent seats plus 1 I can bring in for 7 possible and 3 rows). Ongoing photos on my signature link....

Opening scene of Expendables 3 is really good for an atmos demo.

I just watched Kong: Skull Island with remuxed Atmos + 3D and it was really great (3D was good with a lot of pop-outs and so was the sound with lots of helicopters, explosions and birds attacking from above).

Miss Peregrin's Home For Peculiar Children was only 7.1 in 3D (Atmos is available on the 4K disc that I never bought), but it upmixed with Neural X as if it was Atmos (loads of ceiling effects) so I'm guessing the Atmos version is quite good as well. The question is whether it's worth double dipping just to get the Atmos soundtrack when it already upmixes so well from 7.1. Anyone hear the Atmos version? Come to think of it, I believe my iTunes digital copy has Atmos on it so I could compare, but would have to watch it in 2D to find out....

Remuxed not remixed. It means I take the Atmos or DTS:X or Auro-3D soundtracks from the 2D disc or 4K version and add/replace it on the 3D version. Some then burn a new disc, but I just use the MKV 3D dump and play it on a Zidoo X9S player which can handle 3D MVC video.

Ah I see. Thanks. I didn’t know people did that. Cool idea!

MKVToolnix makes it pretty simple for a Zidoo type box.

Not sure why no one has mentioned the movie Sully, which the normal Blu-ray has an Atmos track. The intro scene is easily one of the most impressive Atmos samples I have heard from a movie.

Sully seemed like it might be boring (one hit wonder of landing in a river) so I never watched it. Unbreakable has a nice airplane intro, but the rest of the movie is on the ground in a POW camp, which isn't a bad movie, but if you're thinking it's an air based film like Red Tails or Battle of Britain, it's not. OVERLORD has an incredible opening and continues to impress sound-wise throughout the movie (ball dropping on the attic floor above is one of the most realistic overhead sounds I've heard in a 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.

Aquaman 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).

We are talking about MOUNTING speakers, right? Can't speak for bouncing and its not really well regarded but if we are talking about mounting...

Minimum distance for anything is like 5 feet. People say 4 feet but I had rears that were only 4 feet and it was too close and pretty much killed all directionality. You can always go angled speakers/mounted elevation speakers on side walls. I had to go that route since I couldnt put holes in ceiling.

Atmos "can" be on regular but you will need to check sometimes it is on regular sometimes it isnt

This thread really isn't about mounting Atmos speakers. There are other threads for that.

I have to agree. Just rewatched it and wow, there are some demo quality atmos moments in this one!

Godzilla: King of Monsters - a good work out for all your speakers. uses all the speakers effectively and is a real test to your subwoofers.

Dunkirk - if you want the Godzilla level of sounds, but used more realistically - this one is for you. Lots of bass effects, overhead plane sounds. if Godzilla is on full-on sound mode all the time, this one moves between silence and loud sounds.

Pet Semetary - this movie has some cool overhead effects. There are few movie scenes which throw only overhead sounds, mainly due to scene constructions - this is one of them which uses it effectively.

But my all-time favorite still remains Master and Commander. Never seen such superb use of sound effects!

Dunkirk is only 5.1 and the same is true as far as I know of Master and Commander. The other two are available in Atmos. The thread title is about the best Atmos titles, not the best 5.1 titles. Perhaps they upmix well with Neural X or DSU?

I just got the new Disney+ service and I have to say I'm impressed. ALL the original SIX Star Wars films are now in 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos! Most of the major Disney/Marvel/Pixar films are now. All the Toy Story movies are in Atmos (watching Toy Story 2 right now in Atmos). Yeah, it's probably that print-through Atmos (I can't tell on my 7012 AVR and I have "Scatmos" and Matrixed speakers beyond 7.1.4 (set up as 11.1.6 with front wides and surround #1 for three rows in a 12'Wx24'L room) so they all work regardless (loads of stuff in Toy Story 2 in my front wides and overheads and that scene where the chicken guy walks around the back of the room is super smooth panning all around the left side of the room into the very back of the room (24' long here to the back speakers) and slams the door. Actually, that part sounded similar in expanded 6.1. The overhead stuff is way better in real Atmos than Neural X, though.

Angel Has Fallen has an excellent Atmos track. Great use of overheads.

They're DTS:X and not Atmos but the original Bourne Trilogy make great use of it. They sound like you're in a storm, city, etc. Really well done mixes.

FURY with Brad Pitt has to be one of the best Atmos titles I've heard for overhead sound usage (and a great tank based movie).

Totally agree! The sound is really good. Unfortunately, the movie cannot live up to it... I really liked the first one much more...

Yeah, it's no where near as good as the first, but then again not many sequels are.

One of the best Atmos demonstrations I've heard is from the Dolby Atmos App demo on Xbox One. SUPER immersive.

What does the demo show? I wonder if it's one they have used anywhere else. Dolby definitely milks their trailers!

True! Luckily, there are some exception now and then. For example Blade Runner 2049 which I consider at least as good as the first one. It's a masterpiece
