Ever wonder what it would be like to bring your favorite dead rock star back to life? Alberta certainly has. Since she was a kid, she’s dreamed of a world where ultimate 60s rock icon Russell Aquarius was still alive and writing songs just for her. Now a successful computer programmer, she takes her fandom and wishful thinking a step further and makes a Russell Aquarius avatar. Her loneliness and a freak power outage give her more than she bargains for when sparks fly not just in her computer, but also in reality when Russell’s avatar comes to life.
The Second Age of Aquarius is an interesting exercise in science fiction with fandom comedy, imagine having the power to manipulate code on a computer to resurrect one of your favorite icons and that’s what we get here in this rock and roll movie. It won’t be for everyone knowing how it looks like it’s shot on a shoestring budget.
However, I dug the films ideas a lot, with capturing the bringing a famous rock star back to like in the movies universe, the acting is genuine in The Second Age of Aquarius as well, it does feel at times to be a passion project from the director Staci Wilson.
At times the movie has a punk vibe to it the way it looks, though the music is mostly 60s and 70s here in the film, if you’re looking for a throwback exploitation film style of a movie The Second Age of Aquarius will be a great rock and rolling time for you. It’s currently on digital video on demands outlets now. And it is well worth while.
