5.0 out of 5 stars My Last Waltz July 25, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have memories as a kid of my father showing me the classic documentary The Last Waltz. I have a feeling my son will have the same memories of me watching this documentary over and over again.

I was lucky enough to see Mumford and Sons just before they blew up at a little venue with 200 people in Phoenix and then less than a year later with over 10,000 people at the biggest venue of this Rail Road Revival Tour in Tempe. Being at the concert was an unforgettable experience, and this documentary captures that brilliantly.

I would have liked more interviews with the muscians, I would have liked to have learned more about them. That is my only criticism of this video. I watched it two times in the few hours since it arrived via UPS. The music, the bands, the train, it is musical nirvana.

Nothing will beat having been a part of the rail road revival tour, but this video captures it and I hope you will watch it and watch three brilliant bands, Mumford, Old Crowe Medicine Show, and Edward Sharpe make beautiful music that will have you tapping your feet and dancing while watching this over and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for a joyful train ride August 25, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
The corporate descriptor has it about right regarding this brief (67 minutes) documentary. "3 bands. 6 cities. 1 train, and thousands of miles of track..." The bands are the U. K.'s Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros from down under and the Old Crow Medicine Show from Tennessee. The train stops and concert venues are Oakland, San Pedro (L. A.), Phoenix, Austin and New Orleans. I know I'm missing one. Maybe L. A. and San Pedro are considered separately.

In any case don't expect a concert film. It isn't. Certainly there is plenty of music, especially the final joyful 3 band collaboration on "This Train." The unrated film is the Amtrak equivalent of a PG Jack Kerouac "On the Road" film. We see the various bands practice, write songs together, jam and generally have a good time with various family members along for the ride. For this viewer, I enjoyed the gig in Austin when the Mumfords invited the Austin H. S. marching band to perform with them with the hit song, "The Cave." The kids were having a blast in front of thousands of fans.

The Blu ray version comes in 1080p with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio and includes a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack as well as 2.0 PCM Stereo. They do a good job of transforming the folk, bluegrass and rock songs from the bands. The video and audio are both excellent. The package includes a DVD version with compressed Dolby Digital audio (5.1 and 2.0). Extras include an interview with the director Emmett Malloy and some of his photos as well as some deleted scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! I didn't want it to end. July 17, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
What a great documentary. All three bands are amazing. Alexander Ebert (Edward Sharpe) and his music is the 2nd coming of Jesus. Old Crow Medicine show needs to stop screwing around and do a Northwest tour....please. But seriously, this documentary was great. I loved it, my kids loved it and it's the closest thing you can get to experiencing this legendary tour outside of being there. Easy purchase.

An excellent tour and a very well done Documentary

The packaging was very well thought out and put together

The music and cinematography/videography were all superb.

I enjoyed this more than any concert video I've ever seen before.
Made me want to go out and immediately do a train tour of America!

Watch it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Easy Fun August 12, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love music, I was not a fan of the bands aboard the train until after having seen the movie. Now I'm a big time fan of all three bands and had just seen Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros live at the Hollywood Bowl. Love the bands, love the wholesomeness of the movie, the artsy photography is very good too. If your into music regardless of whether you're familiar with these groups, you will love the show. I've watched this movie better than 12 times in the short time I have had the DVD. I'm a huge fan of "The Last Waltz". This is not "The Last Waltz". It is a better storyline and just as much fun to watch. I wish I'd known about this firm when it was being made. I would have made a effort to see the stops live. This is the new age hippy film. A must see in my book.
