Movie Reviews

Fat Old Bomb
Flickhead.com | Anytown, U.S.A. | 07/06/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"A Pink Floyd documentary -- without Pink Floyd. Producer/composer/arranger Ron Geesin boo-hoo-hoo's about not getting proper credit for his work on their album, "Atom Heart Mother," 35 years after the fact. A transparent sycophant called 'Krusher' hosts. Producers who produce Pink Floyd cover bands are interviewed (!). Absolute rubbish, and painfully long even if it runs a little over an hour. Send this one off to the heart of the sun."
Disappointing

"You'd think that for $26 you would get a live performance of the show. They did it in NYC, with ballet dancers, and was covered by Time magazine. There must be a video recording of it.

Otherwise, a lot of of interesting details about the projects and one of my favorite PF efforts. Hungry for anything PF, I enjoyed watching it, but as I said, to have a critical review without seeing the subject is highly disappointing. And the price for a TV documentary is outrageous."
Don't waste your time and money !!

"Almost all DVD time is worthless interviews, just few minutes of music.
Don't expect to listen more than a couple of short live cuts of AHM, and that's all!!"
One more to the trash!

"Really bad, where is the actual concert? the DVD promises the AHM concert here and there, yet there is no such concert, just fragments of a recording (real bad parts) with vague comments... I cannot believe PF is allowing this trash. No wonder why people end it up copying DVDs. Who wants to pay 20 bucks for this! One expect the concert fully restored or at least a complete song! NO, just fragments of music here and there... what's is going on???"
