  • Metallica: Through The Never




    The film shows young Trip's (Dane DeHaan) surreal adventure during an urgent mission he is sent out on, sewn together with concert footage from a set of concerts Metallica held in August 2012. The movie will be shown in IMAX theaters across the U.S, before being rolled out to normal cinemas in 3D the week after.
    Sure to be the biggest motion picture event since 1984's A Nightmare On Elm Street. I can't fucking wait, I've watched the trailer at least 20 times. I actually ran out of phone credit.

    Looks so, so fucking epic.

      It's super original. I love them for doing this type of experimental stuff, even if it turns out shit (LuLu). I'd rather them try new things and it suck, then keep repeating crap over and over.

      It's looking awesome. When I found out about it originally I was iffy, given the director. But everything looks fucking awesome so far.

        and what the hell is this now? hey, don't get me wrong, I'm always rooting for Metallica to do things that don't suck, but my impression of this is straddling the razor's edge of a polarizing 20% chance of greatness, and an 80% chance of utter shitshow bonkers terrible extravaganza.

        Lars in 3D... I don't know if we're ready for such thing.

            The concert footage looks badass. This thing looks surely awesome on an IMAX screen. I doubt the plot with the guy will work within that experiment, but Santa is a tolerant and openminded person and therefore I will give it a shot.

            Metallica at full throttle and in IMAX - not bad!

              Exactly!

              I'm just so pumped for that aspect. Hell I probably won't even take a lot of notice to the story. Not on first viewing anyway.

                Yeah, first focus will be on the band and the band only.

                I love concert films in theatre. The last one I saw was U2 3D from their Vertigo tour. It blew me away and brought massive nostalgia tears to my eyes. The soundfield was just amazing, you are literally in the venue. Metallica will be no different I guess.

                  I saw the trailer for this in IMAX 3D the other day. It looks pretty awesome.

                        METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER!

                        First of all, it's easily for FANS. If you're not a fan of Metallica you're likely not going to enjoy it at all. Secondly, I can NOT recommend 3D enough. Personally I'd feel the same way seeing it in 2D, but 3D is easily it's biggest draw card.

                        OK, firstly it's not a "movie" it's pretty much a long ass music video. But for a concert. There is lucky to be a total of 15 minutes where there is no Metallica music playing, and the majority of the film is the band playing and some absolutely amazing set pieces they have on stage (most of which have been used before but are improved). So don't go in expecting a film with a story, as it doesn't really have one.

                        Purely put, if you're a fan, turn your brain off and be utterly blown away. It's visually stunning, the 3D breaths so much life into it. I think there is a lot of people who will think it's a big cop out once you work out whats really going on, personally I didn't care. As I said, it's more like an 100minute music video.

                        That said though, the band scenes and the apocalypse ones are blended beautifully, and even twist into each other in an utterly awe shattering way. The direction is absolutely flawless. The editing is all very sharp and also done perfectly. It also has some good humour through out.

                        It's easily the best cinematic even of my life, and though I wouldn't call it a "film" so to say, it's probably in my top 3 of all time.

                        I was speechless and in awe. It is a visual feast. 10/10

                        The night ended up costing me $500. Blew I tire on the way there (3 hour drive), got a parking ticket, fuel and ticket price was all around $495. So. Totally. Worth it!!!!! <3

                              Wow, that's a sum I won't spend on any band ever.
