Maverick's inbound... x4.

I love this movie!

This time I saw it in a 4DX, a large screen with seats that move and shake with elements of the movie, along with some wind and flashes of light.

The flashes of light were behind me, so they did nothing.

There were blasts of air and a lot of shaking, which 90-95% of the time, was annoying.

I won't be fooled again.

But in that 5-10% the seat movement really added some immersion, and was a lot of fun.

The rest of the time — not so much.

I think it could have been tuned better and vastly improve the experience, but I'll pass on future 4DX viewings.


A question for any Maverick viewers who drive an Android phone...

Was the texting app Mav was using an Android OS app or a third-party app?

In all the excitement, I clean forgot to check the brand of the phone, so if it's a 'Phone, gomen nasai.

There was a small circle to the left of each text with the sender's name, and below both of those, instead of the Apple . . . to indicate a sender is typing, was XXXX is typing.

A nice touch.


One more show and I'm a movie ace.

More importantly, being a member of the theater's club, the fifth visit earns me 5¢ off an XXXL Two Family size of popcorn when purchased with a 3L Pepsi.

(I hate Pepsi.)

But a deal is a deal.

The seats shook in the Dolby Cinema theater where I saw this movie, pretty much only during the jet scenes. I don't know if they are designed to do that or portions of the soundtrack were just that loud.

P.S. Get help. smiley-laughing001



It is what it is.

that doesn't sound like the default Android messaging app. but, considering when it was filmed, it might be a few generations ago too.

I don't need help.

I can quit anytime.

LOL.

There's also the possibility that it was just some video whipped up for the movie, and not really a part of any actual app.

A lot of TV/movies seem to use a "non-standard" text app, which I've long considered an app generated just for such use....

so as not to conflict w/ any real recognizable apps that would then be garnering "product placement".

Your basic "Avoid Product Placement Conflicts Text App".....
Available at all App stores nowhere.

Fair point.

But it was a cool looking app, except for the lack of blue 'bubbles'.
