Movie Reviews

There's lots of echo but where's Charlotte ??????
12/28/2001
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is simply a big disappointment. You don't have to read any more.Sony Classical worked hard to make sure Charlotte Church only sings two songs even though they promote her name heavily with this DVD. Sony Classical also worked hard to put in as much echo as possible. No doubt because Vanessa Williams and Tony Bennett need all the help they can get. That echo spoils the little singing that Charlotte does and it spoils all of Placido's singing. Maybe Sony Classical thinks that this sound track should be played with heavy echo on $... boom boxes. What a great missed opportunity for Sony Classical to have Placido Domingo and Charlotte Church sing a few christmas carols together on a DVD without distortion. There's obviously a lot of reasons why this DVD is now being heavily discounted. Sadly, it's just a big rip off."
Mercy!

"What a travesty, the great Domingo soldiers on with a group of motley artists (Charlotte excepted). I mean, Tony Bennett should retire and enjoy his millions, he is REALLY past it! It was painful to watch him and Placido mangle beautiful Christmas music and it would have offended the ears of The Creator.
Charlotte however, is showing more maturity in her singing.
The other female pop star lacked diction, and was clearly out of her depth.
These annual Christmas in Vienna shows have been really tacky over the last few years.......check out 'Christmas Glory at Westminster Abbey', the BBC will show how it is supposed to be done."
Very Enjoyable

"I just watched this DVD and can't begin to understand why such poor reviews. Let me preface this by saying that I know nothing about the nuances of music or sound quality. I'm an average Joe would would normally choose watching football over a Christmas concert. I found this presentation to be very enjoyable. Having four talented people from very different backgrounds performing together was an absolute treat. Don't buy into the 1 star reviews by snobby Opera geeks. I believe that most people will find it to be very well done moving."
I LOVE CHRISTMAS, BUT NOT THIS COLD CONCERT CATASTROPHE!

"Each individual element of this event had potential of providing a warm and memorable Christmas evening, but together they are lost in a blinding snowstorm. As much as I love Christmas, its music and all things wonderful about it... this video does not deliver!"
