Metallica S&M2 - in the theater....

Who went to see it today? What did you think? I’ll reserve my observations til later. I watched it in a mid-grade theater in Middleton, WI - so my experience may be a little tainted...

Impressions?

    We saw it tonight, and I loved it! However, I am an incredibly bias lifelong Metallica fan. Overall I think they did a great job. Some cool additions and new takes on things vs the first S&M. It was well filmed. We'll see how the sound comes out on the final audio, but I'm so glad we went to see it in the theater.

    I will say my girlfriend is not a die hard Metallica fan, but she's been slowly coming around. I thought she would review this as "tolerable but too long" but she authentically enjoyed it too.

    It's not going to win over anyone that doesn't like Metallica, but if you enjoyed the first S&M, I think you'll enjoy this one too.

    I hope that the theater I watched it in was the problem... not the mix. I felt like the meat of the drums was nearly nonexistent. I understand that theaters are tuned for movies, not concert reproduction, but I hope the when it’s released for home viewing I can crank it again and feel Lars hitting me in the chest!

    I really enjoyed it. The lull in the middle almost lost me, but it picked right back up after that. The tribute to Cliff was amazing. Great show, awesome followup to the original. Excited to pump it through the SDA's at a future date! 🤘🏻🤘🏻
