Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

My nephew and I went to see this today. It cover the months it took to make St. Anger. It had plenty of whining, therapy with an expensive and annoying therapist, rehab, Lars complaining, more whining, accusations of self-centeredness, and music.

BUT

It was (at times) a fascinating look into the creative process of very talented and fucked-up musicians. I recommend it for Metallica fans and music fans.

I wouldnt mind seeing this. I dont consider myself a huge fan of theirs by any means, but I do really like most of their first decade of music. I'd like to see this movie just to see what was the thought process behind making the Saint Anger album.....

sigh....

I know, I know... I need to get over myself, or something, but I just can't make myself go see it.

I used to be a huge Metallica fan, saw them in concert 5 times, the whole deal. I had my "James Hetfield Religious Experience" from my perch in the 8th row. I spent entire sleepless nights listening to Fade to Black over, and over, and over.

I don't know what combination of changes occurred in me and in them, but with the exception of "Hero of the Day" I haven't been able to listen to a damned thing they released since Black -- and we bitched plenty about Black back then -- hell we complained about And Justice.. -- if only we knew what was coming....

Lars has succeeded in absolutely repelling me, with his Napster whining and everything else.

.......I miss Cliff.

Don't know if I'll actually see it in the theaters, but if I ever do get the chance to check it out somewhere, I might do so. It does sound kinda interesting.

I wanna see it. I consider myself a mild fan of Metallica, though I absolutely can't stand Lars. Even if he got a slightly bad rap on the downloading thing, he's an arrogant asshole all the same.

I've read a couple interviews from the directors about the film, and what really struck me was how completely honest and open Metallica were, and how supportive they were of the director's wishes. When Elektra wanted to turn it into a reality tv series, Metallica paid $4 million out of pocket to buy the rights to the movie, and then basically told the directors "do it your way."

That's pretty damn cool.

I couldn't give a flying friars fuck what Lars thinks of Napster, or what he eats for breakfast, or how quickly he sold out. But that said I do like quite a bit of the music so I will await it's arival on dvd (if it ever gets there) and watch.

Prepare yourself, then, if you ever decide to see this movie. Because Lars spends virtually all his screen time whining, bitching, and generally being repellant.

I would never pay $13 for a movie ticket to see a bunch of drama that I could see in my home for free on the real world. They're cashing in on this whole "reality TV" bullshit.

Wow. That's the coolest variation of "I don't care" that I've ever come across.

Bravo!

heh. i actually saw this months ago at a screening here in san fran. the band showed up to the premiere and answered a ton of questions. they were all pretty cool.

i'm not a huge metallica fan, in fact i didn't know too much of their music until i saw the movie and listened to some of their albums later. It's a really interesting documentary into their lives, the process...and it's utterly facinating to watch and hillarious at times. i say check it out...

thumbs up!!

I don't think I agree here. Putting rock music and rock musicians on film has been a tradition since the 50s and 60s - documenting the creative process, etc etc.

Wilco did it to critical acclaim with "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" (or whatever their movie was called) and Barenaked Ladies had similar acclaim with "Barenaked in America."
