Deadpool.......Wasn't expecting that. Really good parody on the whole superhero genre while also giving superhero movie fans most of the scenes they expect. I liked it.
Sound wise, this film is very bassy. There are a handful of potent boom effects that are narrow band and centered around 30Hz, which is why the peak graph looks a bit skewed. Many other effects are full band (or quite close to it). One thing to notice though is once the extension point is hit, the track has little falloff below that, leaving quite a bit of ULF in the mix. It is definitely noticeable and there are some effects in this movie that really get the room moving.
Sound quality is a bit more mixed. As expected (feared?), there is clipping. A limiter has been set on the track somewhere around -.5dB and you can see it being hit during loud scenes. The center channel is the most affected, but all channels clip to some extent (even the LFE). While this might sound bad, the clipping doesn't appear anywhere near as severe as several other recent films (Spectre, The Force Awakens). Given the ridiculously over the top tone of the movie it may even be intentional.
I'll post some screencaps in the next few days as time permits.
