    I was stumbling around imdb and I found out that Metallica is releasing a 3D concert movie this summer.

    http://ultimateclassicrock.com/metallica-through-the-never-plot/

    I know what you're thinking:

    - Why would Metallica name a concert movie after one of their worst songs?
    - Why is this thread being posted in the movie forum?
    - Why does that link have the word "plot" in it?
    - How exactly did Pigdango find this movie on imdb?

    Let's start with the last question first. I made a reference in the Amazing Spider-Man thread about the guy from Chronicle playing Harry, so I went to imdb to make sure that's where I'd seen him from and to see if he'd been in anything else. He has two movies in production, Spider-Man 2 and Through the Never, where he's playing the part of Trip. Wait, what? Playing a part? So I went to google, and found this:


    Wait, what? What the fucking fuck?

    The Wall was a terrible movie. Not a good starting point to emulate.

    I like Metallica, but they aren't Pink Floyd and they definitely aren't the Beatles.

    Well, Some Kind of Monster was good, right? Doesn't really apply here, just sayin'.

    Metallica hasnt made a good decision in over a decade. This is going to tank.

    So it's the Orpheus tale except it's about a roadie who must go to hell for Metallica? Shouldn't this be the plot for a Bill and Ted movie? Or something Tenacious D?

    Also, I love The Wall album and movie. Never cared a lick for Metallica.

    I guess this band didn't learn their lesson from the LuLu disaster.

    I think they must have approved this on the same day they agreed to do 'Lulu'.

    This movie sounds fucking gay.

    the wall was a great album and good movie btw.

    Metallica will never get the same amount of respect they would be getting if they hadn't sold out. It could be good (I don't think so) and they would always be the "Metallica sold out!!!" crowd. In essence One was the the song that started the downward spiral because it made them known to the mainstream public and Bob Rock turned them into a big time selling act.

    I saw this tonight. As a concert film, it's fantastic. The band sounds great and everything looks amazing. The set list is fairly standard, nothing too deep (except for Orion over the closing credits). I did get a few chills when they hit the stage and blasted right into Creeping Death. Awesome. The scripted story is not as good. It's like a long music video. Kinda weird and over the top and good for some cool visuals but not terribly compelling. Dane DeHaan was fine I guess. He has no lines and does a lot of scowling. It's definitely for Metallica fans only.

    It couldn't be worse.

    I just hope the band stuff is straight concert. I don;t want to see them 'acting', even though Lars seems to fancy himself a thespian in recent times.

    It is. There's a very small part in the beginning where it just introduces everyone, but they don't even really have lines or anything.

    Was releasing the film on the anniversary of Cliff Burton's death just a coincidence?

    Staunchly mediocre and 30 minutes too long. Lars still had shit sounding drumming and there isn't a single memorable bass guitar moment on the record
    and they had ROBERT TRUJILLO. This applies to everything Metallica has done since Black album.

    I just looked up Death Magnetic, I forgot how long it was, holy shit. I liked the album, but my not remembering how long it was proves I must not have liked it that much... The two songs I remember are Cyanide and The Day That Never Comes- both were pretty good (Cyanide was better), but Hetfield's voice sounded weak. Nothing touches their masterpiece "Lulu" though :rolleyes:

    Metallica hasn't done a record under 70 minutes in more than 20 years I think.

    Who wants to listen to an 80 minute thrash record?

    I liked Death Magnetic, but it was yet another victim of the Loudness War, which is possibly the worst thing in the history of music.

    Metallica was hyping this like a big time 1980s return to form and the Guitar Hero version sounds the best. What the hell?

    Loudness Wars really punish the bassists. They don't stick out at all, no pop or distinction.

    Fucking around with MP3s that are mixed loudly on Audacity sucks. So much clipping and distortion.
