Some Boring Implied
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This film is largely incoherent and to some degree unwatchable. Case in point - footage is shown from a very early '94 arena gig in Dayton. Not only are no complete performances shown, they don't show more than A FEW SECONDS of any one song (and they're doing choice stuff, like Blatant Doom Trip & My Impression Now). Extremely frustrating. Of course there are gems - Bob tracking Pendulum w/ Greg Demos, and singing (and playing!) a solo Mesh Gear Fox, and some wild footage apparently shot by Mary Lou Lord in '94. But not even the hardest core fan will watch this more than once, and probably not even skim through it too often after that. Stick w. live at the Whiskey & Watch Me Jumpstart when you need your GbV video fix."
The Title Says It All...

"First off, I am a hardcore GBV fan and I believe that almost all of their work deserves 5 stars, but this piece is really only worth 2 stars of quality. The title is terribly accurate because you need to be really sloshed to derive much enjoyment from this DVD. Honestly, the last reviewer did a perfect job of telling you what to expect- a few nice bits amongst material not even featuring the band (even if it does keep the lo-fi flag flying). I can only second his motion. A must-have for the rabid fan that needs to see everything- especially if the price is right for you. Watching Pollard strain to hit the notes for Pendulum is pure magic in its lack of flattery."
