Tesla, EDM & Aliens - What Could Go Wrong?
- Pretty good techno soundtrack (EDM specifically, for those who balk at my undistinguishing ways).
- Rad helmet.
- Trippy effects towards the end.
- Plot makes a comeback around midway in, suddenly sparking an interest that wasn't necessarily always present.
- Heard one, heard them all. Some people will feel as though the soundtrack is the same song the entire time (electronic - specifically dance variety - has a way of blending together for some folks).
- By the end, story requires you to have your thinking cap on and mind open to avoid becoming lost.
- The artifacting/distorted video effect gets annoying quick and feels overdone.
The description didn't do the movie much justice, but the cover-art (involving the helmet) drew me in anyways. It certainly doesn't start off incredibly strong - heavy video effects initially made me think that the movie was bugging out through Netflix, but it's actually just what the movie wants to do - or draw you in immediately with it's heavy montage leading to a flashback to then re-show what we already saw when we started before carrying on. For those willing to stick around and enjoy the music for a while, the plot becomes more and more a thinking-man's movie as it goes, until by the end those who don't exercise their imagination much may find themselves getting a pretty severe headache. Although interests were waning at the start, by the end I was glad to have watched ETXR and can say that (as long as you don't dislike electronic dance music) you might wanna give it a shot.
