I'm also going to play a game where I take a shot every time there's an edit that does this effect.

Same here— it was pretty refreshing to hear the mistakes.

I really enjoyed the movie! The bass was quite flat at my showing. I couldn’t tell if it was the theater audio or just myself being so used to the lush audio live. Also, MWAH was ear piercingly painful. My ears were ringing after the showing— I didn’t even consider bringing earplugs to a movie theater.

The visual effects (drone fetuses) weren’t as intrusive as I thought they’d be and added just enough enjoyable decor to everything. I wasn’t really keen on that weird posterize filter used throughout the film. But the cinematography did capture the excitement and experience pretty well.

I avoided setlist spoilers, so TaB was a nice surprise. Definitely my favorite moment.

Oh— other negatives from the experience that were theater related. We arrived at 6:55 when the show was supposed to start at 7 and it was already midway through the set. The theater then backtracked the film, but left off the first few minutes of the intro. And no song previews at the end of the credits. People in the theater were super annoyed and were waiting around for more info.

MWAH was so loud. It was jarring when Knights came in and was so quiet.

I didn't have the hearing-damage-inducing volumes though a lot of people reported. Fortunately I had earplugs anyways since I had to take the subway which does have hearing-damage-inducing volumes.

Also, I accidentally laughed out loud in the theatre when Prelude got on as some epic - well - prelude to Starlight. It felt even more trolly than live since it basically was the studio version in studio version quality

I have a friend who is telling me an unseen version of Aftermath was included in the film. I have a huge feeling he's just pulling my leg, as I doubt it would suddenly be played live for the film, but can anyone verify this anyway?

Yeah, the movie did run fairly loud overall, but it could have used more oomph.

Good thing you were prepared!

Aftermath was only in the opening, as the studio version.

Depends on what you mean with "problems", but no, not really. Sound mix left some to be desired though and as someone else said, I luckily had earplugs to protect me from some of the high and uneven volumes.

But I will personally enjoy it alot more at home, in stereo mix instead of 5.1 surround and with my volume of choice... Not a fan of 5.1 when it comes to music
Audience was mixed extremely loud at times.

I missed a performance of Defector though... Hopefully it can be added as a bonus track or something when it's released digitally. I still hope there will be a physical copy somehow, perhaps included with a collector's edition of the next album or something.

Found it quite amusing they included the ridiculous guitar stand for the DI solo

The sound in the cinema I went to was good most of the time, but there were a few bits where it hurt with the crowd noise being so high, it even drowned out the band sometimes.

All the focus on Matt's little bits of presentation, strutting about sans guitar, the barrier walks, etc. Ergh. They come over so fake and prepared. I had to cringe so much.

Agree with all of this. I thought it captured the experience of the tour well -- that is, a tight performance of (mostly the same, dull) songs, but with no emotion or audience connection. The scripted nature of the tour seemed almost amplified in the film, which surprised me. I was hoping they'd take the opportunity to make it more exciting/emotional. I think I saw one brief shot of Chris smiling at Dom. Other than that the band as a whole came across as just kind of cold and robotic to me.

And I have to disagree about the effects -- those drones fetuses distracted the hell out of me to the point where I couldn't even focus on the song. I was just like WTF is this?

I came on here to see if anyone had any comments about the snippet after the credits but haven't seen anything. I know you can't judge much on a 2 second clip but it sounded like shit. It's funny -- we had about 30 people in our theater and when that tiny clip played, then stopped, I think we all expected some guitars to kick in or something and the "real song" to start. Instead, that....was...it. Everybody burst out laughing like "THAT'S IT?" it was a pretty funny end to the evening tbh

Great movie! The sound engineering was phenomenal and was almost like a gig seeing MUSE on the big screen.

I was pleased to see that Morgan Nicholls got some screen time (he deserves it).

One other comment...at the end of the movie it sounded like we were going to get to hear a new MUSE song...but it turned out to be a tease. Song comes out on 7/19.

Aside from the terrible sound and the lady behind me talking all the time, I enjoyed the show. The mids were cranked and harsh. Bellamy's Kemper sound just stood out at me. I was wishing I had brought my ear plugs and today my ears are sore. The EQ in these theaters is pretty messed up. They didn't use the drones at my show (late start) so it was cool to see how they used them.
