minnjd Posted December 29, 2015 Report Share Posted December 29, 2015 Saw the movie in an "SDX" Dolby Atmos theater in the Mann Cinema chain. They really cranked the volume but their system held up pretty well and the sound was not harsh or fatiguing. The movie had a great deal of loud, heavy hitting bass. That's probably not news to anyone, but one of the things that surprised me was the variety in the bass effects. This wasn't a one dimensional BOOM track. The punch of a TIE fighter exploding was easily distinguishable from the sonic boom of a ship flyby or the massive, grunting thud of Kylo Ren's lightsaber. No clue how deep it went or how badly it clips (if it does), but my hopes are high given that Gary Rydstrom was the sound FX mixer, and he's pretty well known for his skill in maximizing both the volume and depth of the LFE in his mixes (See War Horse, MI:GP, Tomorrowland, the first two Star Wars prequels, etc...). Anyone else want to venture a guess on how this one will rank out when the Blu Ray appears? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
