Movie Reviews

This DVD leaves a lot to be desired.

"When I ordered this concert, I had hoped that it would be as good as the Mothership Connection Concert DVD. Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed as soon as I saw the length of the concert and the interviews with George between the songs. To make matters Worse the production of this concert SUCKS, whomever edited this concert and had the Bright Idea of messing up the flow of the Funk by mixing interviews between jams obviously doesn't have any appreciation for the Funk George Clinton& the P-Funk are known for. This is almost as bad as the editing of their set at Sinbad's Summer Jam on HBO."
One of the few "Live" P-FUNK shows available, and it's CUT!!

"First rule when you deal with P-Funk: We want the Funk "UNCUT"! Five Stars for G.C. and the P-Funk All Stars, the audio, video, and crowd. Zero star for House of Blues production staff involved with this product. HOW DARE YOU FUNK WITH THE FUNK!!! Please take note, and hopefully, your future productions will benefit from this fiasco! I concur with jjhuntfox."
Clinton is great but the production stinks.

"George Clinton is great but this production stinks. Example: Clinton is rapping and says a few bad words and they bleep over the entire sound track!!! Also, the production fades from the musical performance to an interview with Clinton, in the midst of songs.... The end is abrubt; they roll the credits and when done they just stop the music. Who in the hell produced this. They should be banned for life. I unfortunately paid $23 for my copy (not thru amazon) but at the amazon price it is worth owning. There are plenty of cool parts in this DVD, just expect some rough edges."
The sun is setting on these P-Funkers but they won't quit.

"This 1996 concert took place in Atlanta's House of Blues around the time of the Olympics. By any other standard, they performed well, but the expectations they carry as the world's best R&B touring band now works against them somewhat. A much better selection is the Mothership Connection tour (1977) which is also available on DVD. Defections and Father Time have taken their toll on this group but they gamely funk on. It's what they do. Songs include Flash Light, One Nation Under A Groove, Mothership Connection (Starchild), and Atomic Dog. True Funkateers will want this for their collection but the casual fan should pass. If you view the 1977 show and the 1996 show back to back, it looks like a say no to drugs ad."
