I know there is another thread about the movie, but when we went and saw it what struck us-literally-was the sound. Walls and walls of it. Unpleasantly so. Is this REALLY how it is mixed/mastered? This was at the Westwood Village theater this past Monday, in Dolby Atmos. Which, by the way, totally failed to impress us, as it failed during Star Wars Rogue One at the El Capitan in Hollywood. Example: Ryan Gosling's character puts his hand into a beehive and I hear bees...but I do NOT hear an acoustic of being naturally surrounded by bees. I feel like I am inside a virtual space where someone is manipulating a trackball "eh, lets put a bee here, and spin it so it flies like this..." Anyway, the movie was LOUD. Like the scene in Terminator 2 where a semi-truck is crashing sideways. But for most of the 2.75 hours! Now, dialogue was not obviously too loud-loud maybe, but not shoutingly so. And the music not really powerful-like fake Vangelis lite as redone by The Mantovani Orchestra for Muzak. OK, maybe that's a bit unkind, though it DID sound like it was then brickwalled by the Death Magnetic culprit(s). A kind of low frequency hum/thrum motif kept recurring, supposed to sound powerful I guess, but it was more like annoying midbass than elephant-call, loosen-your-bowels LOW throbbing. When we went for ramen down the street afterward, we could hardly remember the movie for the annoyance of the overpowering sound. So I repeat-is this REALLY how it is mixed/mastered?
