Current movies with great sound

Customer Support

Hey guys,

I kind of feel there are not so many new movies released with better than average sound.
Most of them are okay but lack, especially dynamics.
They sound like they were mastered for your TV and soundbar and not for a great home-cinema experience.
Basically all Marvel/Disney movies fall into that category.

What current releases stood out to you?

My last two were:

Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2021
A nice and mellow family film with great sound design. A typical Sunday afternoon movie.

Last Night in Soho 2021
A very dynamic soundtrack, sometimes even too dynamic. Nothing for people living in apartments:)
The movie was okay, nothing extraordinary.

Looking forward to your experiences.

Definitely have to give it a try.

I just finished The Last of Us, although it has a great atmospheric sound, the dialogs are sometimes a little muddy/dull and not super clear, unfortunately.

I just started watching the third season of The Mandalorian. Very disappointed with the sound. Very flat and has zero dynamics. But yeah it is Disney, so I do not what I expected.

@Lukas these days it’s unfortunately expected from Disney to disappoint their audience, sad to say, but it is what it is.

Watched the Pope’s Exorcist with some friends last night via Vudu; the effects were pretty good.  For instance, during a few scenes, there was knocking on the wall… it actually sounded like someone was knocking on the walls to our room… very eerie to say the least.

I thought Everything Everywhere All At Once had great sound as well as Renfield that I just watched yesterday. I’m hoping the new Dungeons and Dragons movie does too.

But I agree, not many great sounding movies out lately. With the exception of Wakanda Forever, it seems Marvel hasn’t put out a decent movie with memorable sound since Avengers Endgame.

One mans humble opinion

Bought Avatar: The Way of Water that is crazy sound.
I thought my house came down with all the amount of bass in that movie.

And I only have a 10 inch sub
