Movie Reviews

Could of used an audio and video upgrade
Gis A. Bun | Montreal, Quebec Canada | 11/15/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you aren't a fan of [primarily] British comedy but love British music, this DVD is a compilation of the Secret Policeman's Balls [concerts]. You can't really use the term "Rocks" as most of the DVD is acoustic.

On the negative side, they didn't do much to improve the audio or video [still specs in the video] and maybe they had little choice but audio fades aren't great.

On the near positive side, there is also over an hour of interview footage with most of the musicians including a big chunk of recent interviews from Pete Townshend. The interviews are both old and new. What I didn't like much is the editing/splicing."
