First Ever RPX Experience Review Terminator: Dark Fate

10/31/2019 had our first ever Regal RPX with Dolby ATMOS experience

We have been waiting for the right movie to watch in Regal Cinema’s RPX which is their version, if you will, of Dolby Audio called Dolby ATMOS. Last night, 10/31/2019 we caught the 10pm opening of ….

Terminator: Dark Fate ⭐️⭐️½

The Regal RPX experience was fantastic, but the movie we saw in this format? Not so good.

You can click the title to read my review, but the movie itself was, unfortunately, underwhelming. As excited as I was leading up to seeing this movie, I left the theater disappointed.

This post is more about the RPX sound and visuals which were fantastic. Sound was crisp and surrounding. We had almost the dead center seating in the cinema. The screen is large and curved, see picture below:

The screen is big and bright, visuals are stunning. There is nothing about the movie we saw that wasn’t visually pleasing. We paid an extra $5.03 each for the privilege of experiencing the RPX.

Was it worth the extra $5? Not really for the movie that we saw, but it would be worth it for a better movie. There was a noticeable difference in the sound, more spatial and more 3D-surround like, but not so much better that we went, oh, man, we have to see every movie we can in RPX.

Upon leaving the theater and recording our “just left the theater video review” (included under the review above) we both agreed that Terminator: Dark Fate would be more fun to see in 4DX like we saw Rambo: Last Blood.

We need to check out the Dolby Audio, because I’ve read good reviews about that format being the best. We have experienced IMAX, although it’s been awhile since seeing any movies in that format. Love the really big screen effect of IMAX, but they only have certain movies showing in that format, typically the tentpole movies only.
