The DVD is simply amazing. For starters, everything is in character. From the style of the main menu title screen, to the menu voice-overs by the band, and extending through all of the extra material included on the DVD, the personas of the band (and the fictitious director as well) are maintained with perfect consistency.
What makes this all the more amazing is the shear quantity of extras on the disk. For starters, there is about an hour of "deleted" scenes provided. In addition, there are numerous music videos, TV commercials (fake I presume???), and trailers. And as if that weren't enough, there is also a commentary track throughout the entire film with the band members, completely in character, being as hilariously idiotic as they are in the film. The Spinal Tap commentary track is easily the most entertaining commentary in my extensive DVD library.
The DVD medium is put to splendid use as well. Menu transitions are computer animations inspired by some of the film's funniest moments. Each menu plays a different "Tap" song, giving you access to a decent percentage of the sound track.Read more ›
Too bad this blu ray release doesn't live up to the quality of its content; the picture quality can be described as only slightly better than standard dvd in too many frames and I have many standard DVDs that look better. There are two discs but the content on the second disc barely reaches 15 minutes in length suggesting they could have just put everything on one disc or they could have added more and better Special Feature documentaries on the second disc. Sadly we get neither here. The sound quality on DTS HD MA 5.1 surround sound is good except for the very irritating fact that when the band plays, the sound level goes up so high but it goes back down again when the dialogue resumes which is very bothersome when you find you have to quickly adjust the volume whenever this transition is made.
Many fans already have this film in various guises i.e.Read more ›
