Brett said he moved around the (Chinese IMAX) theater and thought the picture experience was better towards the back but the audio was awesome upfront. Pleased to hear him say it was the best screening (in terms of presentation quality) that he'd been to.
'Transformers: Darkside of the Moon'

I'm seeing this again, this afternoon with a friend, I told him to bring some earplugs

what's interesting about the soundmix is that the surrounds channels are just as loud as the front speakers, which is rare to mix as such. From what I've read online, this was mixed in Dolby Atmos, 12 channel for IMAX laser systems, 7.1 and 5.1, this should sound amazing on home video - fingers crossed Atmos will be on the future Bluray edition

I've always seen pictures of concerts at Milton Keynes, but the bit of footage after the 'Let's Dance' song, the outdoor park in England to experience a concert looks massive with so many concert goers, it's literally a sea of people

It was definitely put together in a stimulating way, for the most part. For me though, I didn't see a whole lot of stuff, if anything, that I hadn't seen before.

It was nice and loud though. I liked the loudness.

If you haven't seen a huge amount of Bowie stuff and you want to be impressed, go see it.

I'm seeing more and more at ticket booths these copier-printed warnings about this or that movie containing photosensitive images. Shouldn't it be up to the studios to alert the audience at the start of their movies (at least)? The only movie I've seen on a big screen to do so was In The Earth, with a title card warning of the film's use of strobe effects.

It shouldn't be the burden of the theaters to wait for a patron's complaint, or an incident, to know about a potentially problematic issue.

Some indulgent moments but a memorable IMAX experience. Highly recommend seeing it in this format (for the next six days only).

And what an amalgam of producing/financing entities: Live Nation Productions, HBO Doc Films, Neon, IMAX, BMG . . .

I asked Mr. Morgen if a Stateside 4K BD is in the works and he said yes. No extras though unfortunately. Id like to learn more about the remarkable animations timed to the music.
It was easier said than done...
The only "premium" format was Dolby Cinema at AMC and only during open night due to The Woman King and later Avatar coming in and stealing both the Dolby and Imax theaters, no theater nearby even had an Imax, so I was stuck with the standard screening. Screw whoever thought that was a good idea to shove a premium format film 1 day before Sony and Disney took it.

Honestly, hard to get into. Its very much an experimental film on the back's of archive footage and the Bowie estate. It doesn't go much into Bowie other than basic stuff and i'm shocked how all over the place it is. Its not even a concert film as it barely has that. The footage is also all over the place due to mostly being archive footage and/or maybe recreations with a lookalike. Not quite sure on the later, but it seemed strange the quality being inconsistent. It also was missing a few songs which was a bummer.

Its an ok watch, amazing screensaver. I'm not sure if I recommend to see it in theaters due to it being less distracting than at home, or to wait for the 4k home release.

Blu-ray is currently up on Amazon for $17.99, knowing Decal though it'll probably be $14.99 when it comes out

Seems like the film in imax format left the theaters near me. The bluray is still 2 months away, I really want to rewatch it again, hopefully a digital release comes soon.

Do the songs play out uninterrupted? One of my pet peeves is documentaries on music where they play a fragment of a song, then cut to a talking head or B roll, then come back for more of the song, then more interruption, etc.

Yes and no.
[Show spoiler] Modern Love for example is the instrumental then it plays uninterrupted over the b roll, while Starman is played uninterrupted over the credits.
There no talking heads in this film other than maybe the interview footage cut in here and there with Bowie, Bowie also narrates throughout the "documentary via archival footage and maybe AI? Once again, not sure on the latter but some of the audio clips do vary in quality, so who knows.

This has since been long gone from IMAX, but I was fortunate to see it that very short week it played there. And what an experience it was. It's one of the loudest movies I have ever seen in any theater. I wasn't quite expecting that. My ears rang for 48 hours. I'm so glad I saw on the largest screen possible.

This is an "arty" documentary as befits the artist who always loved to break convention.

A lot of music documentaries leave me wishing they had just presented the source material and not done fancy editing and formatting over the top of it. I'm suspecting this might fall into that category.

The worst for this was Ken Burns' Jazz. There were amazing live performances all through the whole 1000 minutes and only one single solitary song was presented all the way from beginning to end.

I was kind of hoping this would be in 4K with an Atmos soundtrack. Hopefully down the line.

Why are you quoting me?

Happy to see that the ChIMAX has rebooked the picture in the Big House for another week.

I saw this yesterday in a non-IMAX theatre. I'm a David Bowie fan. I like a lot of his music but not everything he did since he delved into a lot of different styles. My favorite period is his Ziggy period. I consider Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars one of THE best rock albums ever! David Bowie has made a lot of great music over the years. This film has many great musical moments in it. I don't really get into all his theatrical performances too much, so these parts of the movie were my least favorite. It was interesting to see that he was such a talented artist/painter! I likes the clips of Bowie from various television shows and the concert footage makes me yearn to see a full-length concert of his in the movie theatres! Some parts of the movie I got a little emotional due to being overwhelmed by the experience.

In short, Moonage Daydream is a wonderful and fitting tribute to one of the most eclectic and enduring artists of our time! All Bowie fans should see it as well as those curious to get a glimpse into a remarkable artists life and career!

It was mainly in response to the short time it was running in premium formats as my area had only 1 day where it was in any premium format in my area.
