Usher's first attempt at a mini-movie....

"Overall the mini-movie part of the DVD was alright, but not grip-to-the-edge kind of seat interesting. It's just what he said it was in the making of the mini-movie: making videos for the bonus tracks on the Confessions special edition CD and joining them into one small movie. I give it 2 stars. It's also wonderful that Usher included all the music videos from "Confessions." That saved me a lot of VHS tape and time.
Now the bonus audio CD is easy listening. I give it 3 stars. It's really nice how the first couple of songs show how much he loves a special someone (or USED to love *cough* but I'm not getting into that part right now). In "Dot com" Usher compares body parts to computers and in "Doin The Most" he shows his appreciation and gratitude for the lady he loves. "It Is What It Is" the relationship has gone sour and Usher won't admit he made a mistake and ends up faulting his lady for it- which I think is not fair at all. Love is a just a chance we take. Jermaine Dupri helps end the CD with the club track "What You Need." This song has a good beat to it, good lyrics (I love the Ooo la la la at the end part), and helps end this whole audio CD on the positive note that it started out on."
Did they run outta cash...?

"The biggest male R and Bee performer since 'any' preditor type currently on the charts (or in the courtroom) put out this long form video earlier 2005, and with all that is going on in the world--ridiculous gas prices, kids getting killed in our streets and in Bagdadian streets, global warming--all he has to offer is some slick choreography and booty chasin'...? What!?!? The mysterious lady busting the ballers is allegory for...? Was she an alien? Can you give me more plot here? Plus, I've seen better creep outs in the tongue in cheek 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'. (As an aside: Usher's idol paid 7 million dollars to put together 'Scream' the video and they're still playing it on VH-1 some 10 years after...) To this DVD's credit it has all the videos from his monster hit, last year's Confessions and a bonus CD with new, rare Usher tunes."

"Usher - Rhythm City Vol 1:Caught Up is a long form video with four singles from Usher's Confessions album which are all linked together. My favorite segment of the DVD was the Seduction video.
