Ghostbusters: Afterlife. It was actually entertaining, something quite rare these days.

Watched Top Gun: Maverick again but this time in IMAX with Laser. First time around was in a Dolby Cinema. I watched it again for the sole purpose of comparing the theaters (first time I've watch the same movie in both theaters). I think I definitely preferred the IMAX presentation. Screen was bigger and the sound was louder, clearer, and more impactful. The bass sounded cleaner, louder, and deeper as well.

Also, while IMAX has far fewer speakers than a commercial Atmos setup, for some reason commercial Atmos presentations, to me at least, usually seem "front heavy" (i.e. most sound coming from the front of the theater/screen). I basically can never really hear the overhead speakers and the surround speakers not that much more either. My local IMAX with Laser theater is very well maintained and calibrated and the you can clearly hear sounds from the surrounds and overheads. By the way, the local Dolby Cinema and IMAX with Laser theaters are from different theater chains. The chain that has the IMAX with Laser doesn't have a Dolby Cinema and the chain that has the Dolby Cinema doesn't have an IMAX. The chain that offers the IMAX with Laser theater has very well maintained and calibrated theaters all around (even their standard theaters). Too bad this chain doesn't also have a Dolby Cinema. However, they do have Atmos theaters with laser projection. The chain that has the IMAX with Laser theater uses Krix speakers in all their theaters that are not IMAX (as IMAX theaters use their own IMAX-branded speakers). The chain that has the Dolby Cinema uses Dolby SLS speakers in all their theaters, including Dolby Cinema, and I think they have ribbon tweeters.

This was a good movie to compare both theaters and it was worth seeing the difference with the same movie.

Same. Olsen did a great job imo, but the rest took the whole experience down a bit. Not bad, but not what I hoped for at all.

Chickenhare and the Hamster of Darkness (Netflix) - 6/10. Okay it's a CGI kids movie and it clearly shows. Fun for the kiddos but too many contrivances to move the plot along.

The Card Counter . . . 6/10

Nice premise-- ex-Abu Ghraib enhanced interrogator gets out of Leavenworth and becomes pro-gambler but his past haunts him. Good, but weak ending, imo.

Stars Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, and Tye Sheridan (Ready Player One d00d).

Netflix.

Dr. Strange: Multiverse of Madness. Was ok, i guess, they went a _bit_ overboard with the effects. Would i've payed to see it in the cinema? No. Still entertaining.

Dr Strange 2. Very Sam Raimy. I give it a solid 8/10. I really liked the Evil Dead post credit scene reference.

Moonfall.
Like, WTF did I just watch? You have to shut your brain off, like put yourself in a coma.

It's bad-good I guess? I don't think I'm giving anything away but its supremely silly how they keep going on about "we have to SAVE THE WORLD" when the moon has already killed all but a few thousand people. Like every conceivable thing has been purged from the earth, infrastructure, buildings and people, satellites, all gone. Then the 'saviours' land back on Earth like 'yay, we saved the Earth, and their cell phones are still working "where you at bro".
