Movie Reviews

Al live is a must see!!

"Weird Al Yankovic live, comes off just as fun as one of his movies or songs would. This DVD is a live recording of one of his concerts that he had after the release of his Running with Scissors album. The best part is that the concert isn't just of the songs that were on that latest album, but full of many of his old favorites that many Weird Al fans have been hooked on for years. Dare to Be Stupid, Amish Paradise, Like a Surgeon as well as newer hits like The Saga Begins and All about the Pentiums. A few of the songs are interesting to note .. like Yoda for instance which is a song about Luke Skywalkers experiences with Yoda, is sung like you would usualy hear it but it suddenly will go into a weird chant that he has done at various times during his concerts. Just out of nowhere he starts to go into it and it's pretty impressive if not wacky to watch the whole band suddenly go into a trance like that. And also a good thing to note is the song the Night Santa Went Crazy has an alternate line that you won't hear in the song recorded on tape (won't give it away but any true Al fan should know already). I also enjoyed his compilation song which was a mixture of a lot of his old songs all in one huge melody. Some of the song would be sung and Al would whip on a new costume to fit the song he is about to sing and go right into it without pausing. I really can't say enough how great this concert really is. There is even subtitles you can turn on if you want to sing along with it and its just a thril to see all the people having a great time and all the effort and thought that Al seems to put into putting on the show. I'm surprised they took this long to put his concert onto tape or DVD. It really is one of the best and most fun I have ever watched. Bonus materials include the two music videos from Running with Scissors which are great in itself. And some funny 50'esque black and white shorts that he did for his AlTV specials some time back. Bottom line, if you think you have heard and seen Al , you aint seen nothing yet until you have seen him live! You are definitely missing out if you don't have this already. You won't be sorry getting this. Its a great laugh and a lot of fun all the way through."
Weird Al at his best!

"For those who have not been to a Weird Al concert...this is the closest you can get without actually BEING there. For those who HAVE been to one of his concerts (like myself)...this will be a great reminder of what it was like! Al and his band are top notch professional musicians...and it all comes through on this video! He performes songs from his new album, like "Saga Begins" and "Germs" as well as classics, like "Yoda" and "Dare to Be Stupid". The two videos from his current album "Running With Scissors" - which follow the concert portion of the video - are an added bonus. Taken together...its "Weird Al" at his best...performing live!"
As close to being there without being there

"Wow, how can you compress a whole Weird Al show into one tape? Well, VH-1 has tried and has come as close as you can without having the bubbles in your hair. (If you say "huh? ", then you haven't been to a Weird Al experience or seen the tape.Must own for everyone who loves Al."
Excellent performances - great DVD feattures

"One feature really makes this DVD worth buying: It includes the video for "The Saga Begins".It also includes the video for "All About the Pentiums", but who cares? I've been looking for the "saga Begins" video ever since they took it off the web, and now I finally have it again.As to the performance, I've got to say that Weird Al and his band are among the most versatile musicians in the world, and it's only because of their chosen idiom that they don't get the respect they deserve. From a musical standpoint, this DVD is outstanding.My one complaint about the performance is that the venue was really strange. It looked almost like an oversized school auditorium, and the audience was almost as well lit as the stage. Plus, the audience was about 50% young boys. As a result, I didn't get the real "rock concert" concert feel I would have liked.One other DVD feature I really liked was the two hysterical mock documentaries ("Germs and You", and "Crimes of Carelessness"), assembled from old educational films. The look and sound of the shorts perfectly matched the old 16mm educational films I used to watch in school as a child, while the subject matter was.... well... different."
