Can you tell I'm fuck-off tired? these notes will probably be very short today. Goddamn work.
Anyway, this is the Angels and Airwaves movie. I didn't know anything about the band or the movie but Victor was pretty excited and the trailer looked just as pretty as Livid so I saw this. I expected it to be all the words that every band throws out when they make a movie: meditative, contemplative, cerebral, raw emotion, etc. and got pretty much exactly what I expected. I will say that I thought certain moments would break into flat-out music video segments which it did not; this is more film than music video and even has a loose story. I kind of had some long blinks toward the end and those moments of disconnect made the vague story even more confusing to me, but whatever... it's all about tone, right?
I will say that the movie looked great. They said they made it for half a mil which is pretty nuts considering how good it looks. I also liked that Tim brought up Richard Garriot to conduct the Q&A afterward and his little anecdotes about actually being in the real International Space Station were like a thousand percent more interesting than Tom DeLonge talking about his band (to me at least, there was a whole front row full of kids who probably thought the exact opposite).
