  • Excerpt: Stop Making Sense Directed by Jonathan Demme 88 minutes I was passionate about music long before I became passionate about film. It began when my neighbor played Hunky Dory to me, and became stronger through school as I discovered the likes of Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Joy Division, The Fall and too many punk bands to mention. We shared albums on cassette and I started listening to the John Peel show on the radio. He broadened my appreciation for obscure music.

Audio sold me.

  • Excerpt: I must agree, that throughout most of this it appears they didn't even attempt to remove the dirt and debris from the transfer. There are color issues, noticeable dirt/hairs etc, and a really soft look in general. There are moments where the Blu-ray stands out from the DVD, and throughout it certainly does have some improvement over the DVD but this was based on my back-to-back comparison on a 135" screen....

Video no better than DVD - I regret 'upgrading' to this blu-ray!

  • Excerpt: First, to be clear, I love the Talking Heads of this era (and earlier) and this concert. As many have said before, this is indeed one of the best concert performances ever captured on film. Poorly captured, unfortunately. I've owned the standard DVD for years, and have viewed it on my Oppo upscaling player at least 50 times. I know (and love) the content very well, warts and all. I eagerly awaited the release on blu-ray to improve the blurry, soft, artifact-laden DVD.

Great Concert Film Finally on Blu

  • Excerpt: This is the best concert film I've ever seen, regardless of the fact that I always skip Swamp and Genius of Love--the other songs more than make up for it. PQ is pretty mediocre, nothing to get excited about, but AQ is absolutely amazing. Pick it up now!

  • Summary: Stop MAking Sense is at the top of the list of the rare concert film that is something beyond an overlong video. This endeavor has some of the most stylish sets and gestures that cinematography has ever produced, and set to a fine musical performance that

Get ready to Dance!

  • Summary: Put this on and turn your sound system WAY up. You will be dancing to this one. This contains high energy versions of 'Burning Down the House', 'Life during Wartime', 'Once in a Lifetime', and 'Take Me to the River'. Plus and excellent version of 'Phyco Killer'. One of the best 'Concert' movies I have ever seen!
