Product Description

Directed by one "Nathanial H”rnblow‚r" and shot by 50 fans, Awesome is the Beastie Boys live and direct. (The full title includes a four-letter word in its six-letter-plus-apostrophe incarnation.) The place is New York's Madison Square Garden. The date is October 9, 2004. The show begins with scratching from DJ Mix Master Mike as the amateur operators, armed with Hi-8 cameras, get busy--from the audience, at the concession stands, and even in the bathrooms. Subtitled "An Authorized Bootleg," Awesome features the tracksuit-sporting trio, Mike D, Adrock, and MCA, running through numbers from all six records. (Later, they bust out the pastel tuxes for a pro-shot suite of jazz-funk.)

Directed by one "Nathanial Hörnblowér" and shot by 50 fans, Awesome is the Beastie Boys live and direct. (The full title includes a four-letter word in its six-letter-plus-apostrophe incarnation.) The place is New York’s Madison Square Garden. The date is October 9, 2004. The show begins with scratching from DJ Mix Master Mike as the amateur operators, armed with Hi-8 cameras, get busy--from the audience, at the concession stands, and even in the bathrooms. Subtitled "An Authorized Bootleg," Awesome features the tracksuit-sporting trio, Mike D, Adrock, and MCA, running through numbers from all six records. (Later, they bust out the pastel tuxes for a pro-shot suite of jazz-funk.) Selections include "Brass Monkey" (Licensed to Ill), "Shake Your Rump" (Paul's Boutique), "Pass the Mic" (Check Your Head), "Sure Shot" (Ill Communication), "Body Movin'" (Hello Nasty), and "Ch-Ch-Check It Out" (To the 5 Boroughs). On stage, they're joined by Keyboard Money Mark, percussionist Alfredo Ortiz, and Doug E. Fresh, "the world's greatest entertainer," who adds a little human beat-box to their rhymes. For viewers concerned about Blair Witch-style vertigo, rest assured that editor Neal Usatin has stitched the shaky footage together skillfully enough to stave it off. Almost as essential as their Criterion Collection Video Anthology, Awesome may be the world's most professional home movie. Nathanial Hörnblowér, incidentally, is the nom de film of MCA, AKA Adam Yauch. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Beasties still have the skillz to pay the billz October 18, 2006
Format:DVD
First, let me start by saying this: if you're not already a fan of the Beastie Boys, this DVD is not going to convert you. Usually, that kind of statement is a cop-out reserved for defending a poor live performance, but in this case, it simply is what it is. If you're one of those people who either A) doesn't like hip-hop, or B) doesn't like "doo-doo rhymes" (elaborately constructed rhymes consisting of ridiculous non-sequiturs, Dada surrealism, and absurdist goofiness delivered for the sole purpose of putting a big, stupid grin on your face), you are never going to like the Beastie Boys...ever. And when you see the manic energy of both the crowd and the boys themselves, as well as the reciprocal love, you're simply going to wonder what all of the fuss is about. I'm not about to give you any of that "You have to see them live" business that die-hards will often trot out to defend lackluster albums. Seeing them live won't change anything. You either like the Beasties or you don't. Period. End of discussion.

That said, on to the DVD itself. Quite simply, this is what Beastie Boys fans have been waiting on for a long time: a full-length concert. Why it has taken so long is anybody's guess, but that may actually be a good thing - now that they have so many great songs (many of which are bona-fide hits) to chose from, the set list is a lot fuller than it might have been at an earlier point in their career. Oddly, their biggest hits are MIA; they're obviously so sick to death of "Fight For Your Right to Party" and "No Sleep `Til Brooklyn" that they're apparently refusing to play them anymore. For some people, this will be a deal-breaker; but that's too bad, because they honestly aren't missed. And the rest of the playlist is superb.

For years now, Beastie Boys fans have craved a new DVD. In response, "Awesome, I Shot That" is a grand slam. This 2004 concert shows the Beastie Boys at their best, performing a surprisingly dynamic show. The fifty hand held cameras concept works very well. As with the close-ups of Mix Master Mike, professional shots fill in the needed gaps. While most of the video may be amateur, the audio fortunately comes from the soundboard. The film's editor did excellent work in choosing which camera feeds to select and the few special effects enhance the experience. The only drawback to the video editing is that the angles jump around a bit too often. The musical scope covers everything up to "To The 5 Boroughs." While most of the concert features the Beastie's hip hop set-up, the live band comes out twice to play the more rockin' and jazzier tunes like 'Sabrosa' and 'Sabotage.' The Beastie Boys keep things fresh for those who've listened to the group's albums a zillion times; many songs features new arrangements with different background samples. Doug E. Fresh's beat box makes 'Time to Get Ill' shine. In terms of the performance quality, the Beastie Boys are in top form. Mike D, MCA and King Ad-Rock perform an amazing set for an appreciative home town audience. The high energy DVD is packed with quality bonus features. As a live Beastie Boys experience, "Awesome, I Shot That" is absolutely phenomenal!

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never seen a better concert film... July 28, 2006
By Alex
Format:DVD
I imagine you all know the story...50 cameras handed out to the crowd, footage edited, mixed in with the pro shots, some crazy effects added...and so on and so forth.

But let's not forget though that this was a brave - whilst now proven brilliant - move. The Beasties, consistently over the years an energetic, entertaining and more often than not superb live attraction, have never released a live video/dvd before now. Now, in their 40's, this is probably the last chance they have to do so, and my god it couldn't be any better.

In keeping with the band's ideals to do things differently with innovation this DVD captures so much which is great about the Beasties. The sheer style of it....the shots are all well chosen and expertly edited (over a year in time frame) and visually I think the editing really gives a feel to the energy of this gig.

And what a gig. The track listing is near perfect, offering cuts from all 6 studio albums, albeit missing out on the hardcore (which was the same throughout the latest tour). The frenetic shots swarm through the likes Sure Shot and Shake Your Rump (where Ben Stiller can be seen rhyming along to every word), then cleverly slow down in time with the mid-set instrumental break, where the boys come out in 50's wedding style tuxes and play through the mellow grooves of instrumental career highlights such as 94's Sabrosa, and to great effect.

It's not just the songs though. Effects on the likes of Body Movin', where a living graffiti style offers something new, and the black and whiteness of An Open Letter to NYC... everything all plays it's part in this film, from these effects to the aforementioned editing. During Intergalactic, the Beasties make their way into the crowd, with an almost 'I can't believe how good this is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dropping Science! October 28, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Easily one of the best concert films I have ever seen. I remember seeing the B-Boys on this tour, and getting just stoopid while dancing in the crowd. This film captures the fun, energy and crowd participation of the show. It also is a great DVD to throw in during a party for backgound music/visuals.
