U2 3D

I'm still buzzing from this movie. What a fabulous, fabulous movie going experience. Amazing, unbelievable and intense. Words don't do it justice. It felt like I could could reach out and smack Bono in the head. I also felt like I should be cheering or clapping at the end of each song. There are some especially poignant moments when they really take advantage of the 3D cameras (e.g. Bono during Sunday Bloody Sunday). I thought the shots from behind the drum kit (like you were looking over Larry's right shoulder) worked particularly well.

All that and you can't shake the feeling when you are watching it that you are seeing the future of movies. Highly recommended (even if you aren't a big fan).

this is the reason so many of us are disappointed when we go to see so- called "fabulous" movies.
It was good. Cool. Edgy (no pun intended). And definitely an experience. But in all honesty, I'd rather be at the concert. Then I could experience it in 3D & not have to wear the dorky glasses.

True enough, Laura, but I don't think a concert film is meant to replace the concert going experience. Also, I don't think it is fair to compare a $15 IMAX movie with a concert ticket that would cost over $100 if you were fortunate enough to be able to secure one.
