    ...music movies ever made.

    The dramatic elements of all this undermine every aspect of the musical performance, because we have zero emotional investment in any character not named Hetfield, Ulrich, Hammett or Trujillo.

    Metallica wrote the script, alongside director Nimród Antal.

    I can't imagine the screenplay scribbled on anything other than a handful of dirty napkins between rehearsals; it appears very little thought has gone into anything outside of the stage production and the music itself.

    Metallica should stick to what they know, because Through The Never is a pile of shit and a waste of time. Don't see it.


    Ouch...

    Howard said it was the best concert flick he'd ever seen, so I'm guessing your thoughts are 100% correct.

    Nimrod was probably burnt out after making the masterpiece that is Predator III.

    Its wasn't meant to be "gone with the wind". Was the critic looking for "2001:a space oddity". Its for metallica fans that may not have been to a metallica show.

    "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes means it wasn't a total bomb. A movie that is universally considered mediocre can get as high a fresh rating as one that was excellent.

    I thought it was great for what it was, which is a concert movie. If you wan't to see a band play bunch of songs live from their entire catalog this is it. If you don't want to hear a dozen songs played live then you would never like this in the first place.

    It is a concert on the largest in door stage a Hard Rock band has ever built. The stage morphs into various stages from their entire career. The sound is recorded and produced better than any live show I have ever seen. It is in 3-D and IMAX.

    As for the narrative, it takes up about 30% of the movie. It is a roadie navigating through town while a riot is taking place. The music is being played in the background synced to the action in the riot.

    The film is what it is. It is a concert with added visuals. If some reviewer is trying to not go along with the pack and doesn't like it, so be it. To say it is the worst music move ever shows how little this reviewer has seen in terms of concert movie debacles.

    My fat and bald brother gave me a lot of shit because I wouldn't go see it with him. I'm glad it sucked and he wasted his money on it. Apologies to any other fat and bald brothers.

    but general public also has seen little in terms of concert movie debacles, and thats who they are marketing the movie to.

    metalica fans are going no matter what anyone writes

    I'm pretty sure I make more money, my wife is definitely hotter (he's got what a fat, bald guy with no money can get), and he's probably beer can thick if it runs in the family.
