Im a pretty spaztic AVA fan and have been waiting for this movie for quite some time. I was stoked to attend the fathom event, I wasn't sure what to expect plot wise with the story line, but I am a sucker for a good music montage sequence and loved the way the AVA score was paired with all the scenes in the movie. (it was almost like one long music video!) When watching the movie it may take an open and clear mind to read between the lines and get to the artsy/abstract message the movie is trying to send. I felt the lost video footage and AVA music did a great job expressing the emotions of the message being portrayed.
The live performance had a raw sound to it, and refreshing to see the band perform. There are few bits of the movie that are a little disconnected, the Q&A helped a bit confirming the general message, but I would prefer a deeper discussion, so I really hope come 11/11/11 the DVD will come with some more director/producer/actor commentary.

Angels and Airwaves expands with a new project that evolves into a complex world. They project the view of an outside world being observed from a not so distant place, yet; enough to make oneself encounter its own demons. AvA ensures hope in the eyes of a new culture, and clarifies love to be the only answer in life...

Finally, a refreshing Science Fiction movie, without super heroes or comic book characters and arch-villains! Close relation to 2001 A Space Oddessy. Captivating story line, amazing cinematography, and riveting music score. Can't wait for the DVD!!!

This movie was absolutely horrible...the movie beganslow, played slow, and ended slower.Iwas confused fromthe point where it changed from the civil war to somehow set on a space station. Where the hell was he at the end of the movie, a hospital, hotel and archive combination in space? No one in my theatre could guess what the hell was going on the entire movie. By the end, the entire movie theatre, almost in synchronized fashion, began laughing at the most strange of parts. It ended up being a great comedy. The concert sucked. Flat out. The sound was so quiet that it began tobe awkward tolisten too with Tom Delonge's Shlong being exhibited in his multiple powerstances. Comments were shouted out during the entire Q&A session which brought much laughter to the audience. I dont get it...is this a joke?No seriously...5 years?

This movie was really well done. The story was intriguing and heart-wrenching. Obviously it's only a movie for adults and teens. Even though AVA did all of the music for the movie I was kind of disappointed that there was more of an emphasis on it. Overall, the acting was great, the directing and cinematography was amazing and the concert and interview afterwards were a nice added bonus. If you're an AVA fan it's a must see.
