    I think it looks great.

    But then again, I usually like what everyone else hates and hate what everyone else likes so... *shrugs*

    Dear god, that music in the trailer was awful. I like the look of the film, but everything else about it just turned me off. Definitely a hard pass.

    that movie Stardust looks so unbelievably bad. I'm actually kind of offended by the trailer. It looks like a biopic put together by a bunch of shrewd advertising people who really don't care about the music, they just want to sell a narrative and cash in on the fact that he's too dead to tell them to fuck off.

    agreed. i mean...i still can't believe they went ahead with this without the rights to the music. how do you make a david bowie movie without, you know...david bowie's music?

    Well, Velvet Goldmine didn't have any either (unless you count "Satellite of Love"), and it's basically retelling this same story.

    At least Velvet Goldmine was a little creative and didn't pretend to be a biopic.

    I would argue that 68-72 isn't even the most interesting period in DB career, story-wise. Yeah, his early struggles are amusing, but not as much as all of his transformations from Ziggy to the modern years

    What's the difference with other biopics?

    yeah, i think because velvet goldmine wasn't marketed as a biopic, but its own story based on SOME stuff that actually happened, no one was expecting there to be actual music by bowie (and the music we get in that movie is SO FUCKING GOOD). this is literally a biopic of david bowie, without his music. wtf?

    Other biopics are often made with top-tier talent, showcase the music, and have the blessing of the person (or their estate) being portrayed.

    I really liked the biopic by Danny Boyle about Steve Jobbs. Showing the guy in four important moments of his career instead of going for the typical chronological recount of his life was a great idea.

    I think this would work well with Bowie, too... like for example showing him backstage right after he killed off Ziggy, in Berlin recording Heroes, in a hospital bed after his heart attack and then while filming the video for Lazarus.

    I didn't say always; I said often.

    That was a desired effect? Was thinking that recording was victim of unfortunate damage like tape warp or something

    Bowie was really into using all sorts of vocal effects processing on that album... the title track in particular, I think, is a tour de force! Tony Visconti had just set up his home studio in Hammersmith and that track was the first one they mixed with all his outboard Eventide gear that was brand-new in '74. Even a few years ahead of THAT snare sound on Low...

    Had a chance to play Ouvrez le Chien on 2xLP today. Still sounding great, particularly Reeves' guitar leads! The next Brilliant Live Adventure is going to be announced on Friday. I'm expecting another show from the Outside tour possibly The Point in Dublin?

    Does anyone know the original tracklist for Metrobolist? I saw someone mention it somewhere else and I'm going to use it for the new reissue.

    Pretty sure there's no difference in tracklisting between TMWSTW and what would've been Metrobolist
