Movie Reviews

This is an instructional video. "How to make a Blur fan."
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Putting aside that the music is fantastic, as you would expect from Blur, the videos are very interesting both individually and collecitvely. It is enthralling to watch this band develop and mature over the 7-year time period encapsulated in this DVD. The confidence displayed in The Universal and To The End is rare and makes one lament even more the current state of American music. I don't think Matchbox 20 has the gumption to emulate Kubrick.Coffee and TV may be the best video ever made and the videos for For Tomorrow, Bang and A Chemical World succeed despite their relative simplicity because the songs are that good. That is why this DVD succeeds. Even when the videos are subpar (compared to others on the disc), the songs are more than enough to carry them and watching Damon Albarn grow into his role as front man for a world class band is one of the more interesting things for a fan to see.This is a fantastic collection of songs and videos from one of the best bands the world produced in the 90's. If you like Blur, you must own it. If you don't like Blur (yet) you must own it, because you will will like Blur. And you should."
Essential Historical Document For Blur Fans

"For years, Blur fans in the US have had to get Blur videos by taping them from scarce MTV appearances or by trading tapes. Now we can finally have all 22 promo videos in chronological order, free from static and annoying station IDs. There's ten years of great English pop music here - you can watch the band go through all their phases in less than two hours, and very entertaining it is too. The videos themselves range wildly in quality ("she's so high" and "girls & boys" being low points) but there's some great stuff here, from the frenetic "popscene"- the obvious predecessor of the more well-known bouncing-off-the-walls "song 2" video, the charming black-and-white view of london in "for tomorrow",the bleak futurism of "the universal" and the strangely heartwarming (not to mention hilarious) "coffee & TV." Classic."
Excellent, complete retrospective well packaged...

"Perhaps the best enjoyment of this complete video compilation is the 90's britpop nostalgia. These are some of the freshest, catchy tunes from the past decade put over film of variable quality. The bigger gems, 'Parklife', 'The Universal', 'Charmless Man', 'Song 2', 'M.O.R.' and 'Coffee & TV' make this a must have DVD for any Blur fan. The remaining videos are fairly lower peg, but are still great because they allow the viewer to see Blur progress and age as a band. Sure, some reviewers have slagged videos like 'Boys & Girls', but it brings back memories; I can remember what was going on in my life by the Blur videos in rotation at that time. The DVD is excellently packaged with an incredible menu allowing you to get pertinent information about the singles and videos, a video picker disguised as advertisements on brick walls, and the cover of each single prominently displayed before the video. Over all, very inventive and thorogh. If you like Blur this DVD is a must buy."
Fantastic dvd for any music fan

"I bought this DVD as a new fan of Blur and was not disappointed-just as i had a feeling that their songs were quite special, alot of their filmclips are also great as favourites are 'Charmless Man' which is funny just because the band keep following the charmless man around, 'To the end' is a perfect filmclip for a very nice song as well as the impeccable 'Coffee and TV' which will have you bopping along in no time...i think Damon Albarn is a great actor in terms of making his filmclips and Graham Coxon is very cute (espec in coffee and tv!)...all in all a really nice musical dvd for any collection. I highly recommend buying it even if you have the slightest liking for any of the blur filmclips because chances are you'll like the band and their music even better after viewing it. As a final tip, buy the best of Blur cd too as it obviously has all their best stuff plus the fantastic 'This is a low' which is not avaliable on the dvd!"
