Did anybody here get a chance to go see the movie? I think it's only playing in LA and NYC, but I took a train down the other day and caught it in Manhattan with my girlfriend. Absolutely amazing movie. Just wondering what other guitarists (HA other guitarists, this is the pit...) thought about it. My favorite part was whenever Jimmy Page played something and Jack/The Edge's eyes lit up like little kids on Christmas. So awesome.

Sidenote: was that Jack's son? I can't imagine it wouldn't be, but he is a strange fellow.

I really didn't understand how they could make an entire movie of three guys sitting around talking and playing guitar.

HAHAHA oh man totally forgot about that. We've all been home for the last two months, but at our first band meeting I'll be sure to call and order some. Without broadcasting the number online. Ever listen to the finished recordings? www.myspace.com/kakiatpark

On topic: The whole movie isn't just them in the room, that's actually only a VERY small part. Most of it is them individually talking about their past and influences and stuff.

Don't feel bad, EVERYONE was left out minus NYC and LA. Granted that's like 1/4 of the country's population in those two cities (exaggeration! don't get PC on me!) but yeah. I had to pay $25 for two tickets. So ridiculous. It costs $6/ticket where I go to school upstate.

I might get the EP. I love it. Life Inside a Lie brings back memories of all those awesome nights I wasted on stickam.

Edit: On topic: I haven't seen it and it's not out around here from what I know. However, I'd love to watch it.

It doesn't come to my area until October. Does anyone know if it will be at the theater just one day or as long as a regular movie?http://www.sonyclassics.com/itmightgetloud/dates.html

It's been in these theaters for three days now, I'm pretty sure it'll be around for a few weeks and/or as long as tickets keep selling.

Where I live in NY, $25 for two tickets is a steal.

Anyway, I'm heading up today to see it in the city. I heard great things about it, and even though I'm completely straight, I unconditonally love Jack White. I also heard that if it does well in the limited release it might be a little bit wider of a release later on.

Didn't see it, but want to very much. Does anyone know when it'll be out in the MA area?

Has anyone thought of just Googleing a pirated verson?
I mean i find the limited release a stupid idea. it seems good but not worth the money to get to a theater showing it.

I refuse to see it cause of Jack White. Okay, even Edge I don't agree with, Jimmy Page is a good choice, but Jack White...wtf? He isn't even good. They should have gotten Jimmy Page (70's), Steve Vai (80's) and John Mayer (current, and he's ****ing good, don't say he sucks. The guy can shred, I've seen it) Seriously, really bad choices.

Dude, Jack White's awesome. As is John Mayer. But you can't deny that Jack White knows his way around a ****ing guitar. He also has a sort of unique style.

I mean, watch these:

And he's obviously Page-influenced so of course they're gonna have him.

The guys that made it said they wanted the most influential guitarists of each generation meaning current, 80's and the classic rock era, I don't know about you, but I look at John Mayer and say "wow I wish I could play like that" I look at Jack White (including those videos) and say "Thank God I stopped playing like that 2 years ago."

i saw this doc last year at the toronto film fest, i agree its an amazing movie but it doesnt realy accomplish anything it just basicly tells each players life story, still a good movie though
It's always the last day of summer and I've been left out in the cold with no door to get back in

Mayers good, yeah, no doubt about that, but, the majority of people don't really view him as a guitarist (by "majority of people" I mean the average, non-musician, and some people just starting music), but, when the majority of people look at Jack White, they see him as a guitarist. And it's not like he's not talented, and he's got a unique playing style, where as Mayer basically just copies Hendrix and Vaughn.

Mayer would've been a fine choice, though, I'm not dissing Mayer at all.
#28
Jack White is the best guitarist to show up in DECADES. With enough practice anybody can sound like Clapton or Hendrix or Vai. Sounding unique and creating your own style is way more difficult and has to come from somewhere deeper.
#29
I'm very biased (username), but Jack is my all time favorite guitarist, and he has been highly influential to my playing. I think he was a perfect choice for this film, along with my second favorite player, JP.

Not big on The Edge, though. He sounds like an irish organ grinder.

And I think Mayer would be better than White, but hey, either way it's alright.

I don't mean to sound like an idiot, but that statement is stereotypical of someone with a Protest the Hero avatar. Music is about your own interpratation, and Jack White uses feeling and simplicity. That's what he brings to the table. I reccomend you watch the movie and listen to him talk about where his music comes from. He even shares his favorite song which is a soulful African-American singing with no instruments, just an out of time clap.

Music is about anything you want it to be. For Jack White it isn't about playing fast or making complex works of art. Just because you don't agree with him doesn't make him a bad musician, it just means that it's not your style. For him, it's not about the playing it's about the sound.

I thought the movie was good. It wasn't great, but it was executed to the best of its ability. Basically, the premise seemed lackluster at points, but it was still executed brilliantly. I kind of think that the movie also focused too much on The Edge. Every time he was on screen he explained his quest for "the sound". This was enjoyable, but many scenes with him just kept on rehashing the fact that he is in love with effect pedals. Surprisingly, the movie doesn't spend as much time as one would think during when the three meet. A little bit more than half of the film is just the artists talking about where they came from, what music means to them, and what drives them.

Another concept I enjoyed seeing was how all of the artists shared their writers block moments. Jimmy Page was always worried that he couldn't write songs and that he would never be anything more than a studio musician. The Edge said that the whole routine was boring him. Jack White also said that it was hard to find musicians, something we all face today.

cool he can play fast... his songs are written for teenage girls so he can sell his good looks. Id put Jack White in that movie over him any day. I will agree with you on the edge though I found him so boring in the movie he had nothing interesting to contribute.
