Film is Probably Fine; Fathom Events are Terrible

I'm sure the Rush film is awesome...they always are. But the satellite feed at the location where I saw the film (or at least part of it), was a disaster. The video quality was terrible, but the worst part was the sound. Fathom (or whoever) only transmitted some of the audio channels, so we got no bass frequencies, and they all came out of the tinny little speakers at the front of the movie house. No Dolby, Surround, etc. We had to walk out it was so bad. Note that while we got our ticket prices refunded, we did not recover the $4.00 convenience charge that we paid when we bought through Fandango, because the movie theater couldn't reimburse us for the third party charge. It definitely will affect whether I make any movie purchases online at Fandango.

Surprisingly Different

RUSH has been releasing a lot of live videos the last decade, but this one is by far my favorite of them all. It was worth seeing on the big screen, definitely. I also really enjoyed the extras after the concert. Seeing this with an audience was a lot of fun (except for the guy who kept kicking the back of my seat, but he was air drumming along with the music, so I forgave him).

Amazing, but that's to be expected

Great footage, beautiful quality and it was pure joy to see them on "the big screen". I think some people in the theater forgot it was a movie because hands were in the air as though we were at a live performance!

Rush Works Them Angels

Fathom Events hosted a "one night only" event at cinemas across North America last night with the premier of Rush's "Clockwork Angles" Tour. Since I have not been able to make it to a Rush concert in many tours, I can only marvel at how their stage show has grown. The one main screen and the 10 smaller screens that moved above the stage added to imagery and enhanced each song. For the first time ever, the band was joined onstage by other musicians, The Clockwork Angles Strings. The addition of violins and cellos put a slight spin on classics and propelled the newer songs. The documentary itself really provided an unparalleled view of the show, moving over the massive audience and tight close ups of Ales's and Geddy's playing. A camera in the drum kit showed the concentration of Neil Peart as he worked his double set of drums and other percussion instruments. My only complaint was the sound. Very loud and overally distorted at the beginning. Seemed to get better
