U2 3D @ 08:41 am

aeroporto:
Hi, I've been a member of this comm. for a while now, but I don't think I've ever posted. Anyways, I saw U2 3D on Wednesday (I was out of the country earlier; thankfully I made it back while it was still running) and of course, I loved it. Everyone in the theater sang along to all of the songs. It was so much fun.

I just wanted to know what other peoples' thoughts were on U2 3D.

Even though my theatre had about 8 people who hardly did a thing, I still thought it was awesome. Really amazing execution and use of the 3D technology. And the sound quality! *swoons*

My hubby and I saw it a total of 4 times while it was here in FL. Each time was amazing and I saw something new. I wish there was a way to be able to see it again...

I've seen it a total of two times while it was out here and I loved it tremendously both times! There weren't very many people at the theater either time, but it was better than being crowded. Nobody sang along except me and my sister. XD
I sat in basically the middle of both ways, both times. And it was an awesome place to sit for sure! Not too close and not too far, right in the middle!

The volume however, wasn't quite as loud as I expected it to be, but it wasn't like it was very quiet either.
As for the visuals, there were a few occasions that I actually ducked. Both times. All because of Adam's bass. I kept thinking I was about to get whacked in head! I was pretty impressed with the 3D effects.

I was so sad when it was over though! Haha. I loved it.

I saw it the week it opened here (Toronto) in an IMAX theatre (it was packed), then again night before last (it closed this week) on a regular screen (we're having really nice weather, so the theatre was generally deserted -- six people in the audience, this time). The main reason I didn't try to see it between those times is because the first time there was a lot of double-images and lack of 3D -- largely, I think, due to the IMAX screen. My depth perception's wonky at the best of times, but it was SO much better on a regular screen! I got the full 3D effect, could see the whole screen at once, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

And now I wish I could see it again, but it's gone -- and I fear that if it's ever brought back to theatres, it'll be on IMAX screens, not regular ones. :( On the plus side, when I went this week I took my five-year-old daughter (she's a big U2 fan in her own right). It was her first full movie-in-a-theatre experience, and she loved it -- singing along and everything. We had SO much fun. :) I hope they can make it into a workable DVD.

Double images? Didn't they give you 3D glasses?

Yes, but they didn't work half the time. For some reason Adam in particular was almost always blurry and doubled (in IMAX), and most things happening on the right side of the screen -- and we were sitting right smack in the middle of the theatre.

I loved it--and felt much the same way, like I was really at a concert.

Thankfully there weren't too many other folks around me, so my U2 singalong session didn't bother anyone (at least no one threw popcorn at me).

Saw it once (sadly haven't been able to see it again) in a fairly packed house in Times Square. LOVED IT! OMG, it blows the Chicago DVD out of the water! The 3D was perfect, but not overwhelming. It didn't hurt my eyes, and I wear glasses under the goggles. It just felt real and natural, and the added 3D text during "The Fly" and the closing credits were pretty damn cool!
Plus, awesome setlist! Great energy, great sound. Amazing!

Sounds like you had a great experience. The theater I went to there was a total of 6 people there for the showing, 4 of them being fans around the age of the U2 members themselves, and my Japanese friend and I. We didn't sing along, out of respect for the other 4 people, haha. It was silent aside from the film, but we were amazed none the less :-)
