Movie Reviews

5 star review from someone who has watched it!!
Richardson | Sunny California USA | 09/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just finished this..and its a good size meal, over 2 hours!! So many "concert" DVDs end up being truncated highlight affairs so this is a breath of fresh air. It was a pretty magical night and the boys traced much of their "Tap" history as well as "Mighty Wind" era in good voice and instrumentation but more than that in good spirit and a bassfull of humor! Over the course of 35 chapters they cover every quality tune from their catalog and rarely falter and the film itself is sharp , well directed and the sound is jumping out at me. The venue is beautiful and there is just enough audience interaction to give the feeling of being part of this wonderful event.

I can not recommend this strongly enough...the mix of music, humor and good cheer is such a pleasure. The BEST thing I can ever say about a concert film/DVD is that it makes me kick myself for passing on the show when it came through town and I certainly do. I've seen both Spinal Tap and the full Mighty Wind concerts (one of the few benefits of being near Los Angeles) and figured this wouldn't measure up....well I was wrong ...this DVD will be enjoyed for years!!"
This DVD Goes To Eleven

"I've always been a fan of Tap and Mighty Wind. As a singer/songwriter myself, I admire a good song no matter what the genre. And I admire showmanship. The effortless ease and good humor with which McKean, Shearer and Guest present their songs (with worthy additions from others) make for a rich listening and viewing experience. They may have skimped on the costumes and wigs, but they are plugged in in a big way! I highly recommend this DVD to anyone. It's fun for the whole family!"

"I attended the Atlanta show, it was an amazing performance. I thought it would be fun, but it ended up being one of the best concerts seen in a while. These songs are actually really good songs, and they are good musicians. Christopher Guest is a good guitarist and mandonlin player, Harry Shearer is a good, very under-rated bassist (playing electric and stand-up bass), and Micheal Mckean is a good guitarist and singer as well. Anybody that says they arent good musicians doesnt know anything. On this tour, they were joined onstage by Elvis Costello and Bela Fleck, at the recent Glastonbury "wigged" concert, Jarvis Cocker sat in, at the Wembley concert, Keith Emerson sat in. Thru the years they have had many great musicians join them onstage, including Joe Satriani and even Rob Halford, and if they are good enough to share the stage with all those guys, they are good enough for anyone, and thier musicianship comes across really well in this presentation of their music. About half the songs they played were from A Mighty Wind, the other half Spinal Tap, and theres a few other goodies too. I liked the Mighty Wind songs alot better after seeing that concert, it even made me like the Spinal Tap songs better too. You get to really hear what the Spinal Tap songs are really made of, and in some ways it's a much better presentation of the Spinal Tap material, you'll know what I mean when you buy this DVD. I was taken to a land of demons and banshees when they played Stonehenge, it was amazing, it was everything a rock and roll fantasy could be."

"I saw the show live last year and was eager to relive that epic time in all its unplugged glory. And I caught a few more subtle bits of dialog that had been drowned out by the crowd at my live viewing. Well worth watching.

And this seller got it to me quickly with no issue, it was a stellar transaction"
