[Movie]The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) with Dolby® Atmos™

Yesterday I was honoured to be a part of Golden Screen Cinema (GSC) Media Get Together Event. What's a Media Get Together Event? It's like a gathering-lah, where we get to social around with everybody from the media -magazines, newspapers, and bloggers. I've grew up watching movies from GSC, and to see and meet the people who runs the cinema, I never expected them to be such cool bunch of people. We happily ate and drank, had great laughters and it was so happy to meet the friendly managerial team of GSC. Thanks for letting me attend as TianChad's guest. To cut the long story short, we were also given a brand new movie experience with Dolby® Atmos™ 

"Dolby® Atmos™ introduces powerful new listening experiences for the movies, with sound that truly envelops you and allows you to hear the whole picture. With Dolby Atmos, filmmakers can now precisely position and move sounds anywhere in a theatre—even overhead—to heighten the realism and impact of every scene." In my words- WOAH! The new Dolby Atmos really impressed me. The speakers were choreographed perfectly to sound as though you are moving along with the scene in the movie. Speakers were places around the hall, and above you. 

What about The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?

It's a lovely story, about Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) who has a very, superbly mundane life. He worked at the same place for 16 years, no wife nor girlfriend, and has to take care of his aged mother and a wacky sister. He has the tendency to "zone out", by his wild imagination of how he would like things to be. He wants to be great, but he couldn't, so he lets his imagination do all the great things that he fantasize about. Until one day, he found that his job is in jeopardy due to a lost photograph film (for his magazine), and he went on an adventure of life to find the lost film by hunting down the photographer, Sean O'Connell (Sean Penn). 

In the beginning, I thought this will be a lame comedy. But when Walter goes for an adventure, I begin to love the plot. I loved, the uncertainty, the little pinch of bravery that he could muster, and the journey to various places. To some, this may be an impossible fiction story. Yes, it is. But I love the essence that what this movie tried to show. I loved the scenery, and maybe it's all thanks to Dolby® Atmos™ that I was truly immersed with the scenes and sights of the sea, mountains, volcano eruption, sharks...fuhh.. 

And by end of the day, I realised that there's two places that I would want to go... GREENLAND AND ICELAND.
