Anyone who went to the 86 movie event, how was it? I went to the showing at Colonie Center Mall, Colonie, NY, a town between Albany and Skiddy. There was a real healthy turnout. Not a full house but pretty damn close. The trivia on screen was cool until they looped the questions. The posters were a classy touch, though. Wasn't expecting it but I wish they had gone with original art over the BluRay art. The BB preview has been covered in the Movie verse forum. I liked it but I think the pacing was a little odd. Probably just cause they trimmed it up. The picture quality for the main event was fair. Of course even the new rendering would look grainy blown up so large, but I'm not positive they even used the new rendering. Maybe they did. It was definitely a little dull in spots but overall readable and it was still just breathtaking to see all those iconic sequences on the big screen for the first, and maybe only, time in my life. Lots of kids in the crowd. Its amazing to think that some of those kids might have been seeing the movie for the first time ever right there. Envious. The sound mix, in contrast to the picture, was just plain stellar. The balance was really nice. The music was ever present. Never too quiet or loud. The voices were really crisp. The natural undertones and subtleties of the performances cut through nicely and provided some heavy impact. I swear Unicron's voice went through me, Galvatron was real menacing, and Optimus Prime of course wasn't shorted any of the gravitas he's owed. The other sound effects, explosions, lasers, transformations, etc, were all well integrated. It felt like a war. One thing between the sound and image that's best conveyed in a theatre setting is the fantastical scope and scale of the film. Unicron is HUGE. All in all everyone there seemed to have one hell of a time. It was gratifying to see that even 32 years later this movie makes a splash. I know I'm not the only one of us who went, so, how was your experience?
