If you are a hip hop fan, I don't have to say how much worth this DVD is... Ice Cube (I didn't know him before this DVD) introduces himself in a very cool way, with a bunch of cool songs. Eminem (the reason I bought this DVD) doesn't have that big production, no big introduction, but his songs are great, mainly from Marshall Mathers LP album (The Real Slim Shady, Criminal, Kill You, Marshall Mathers...). And then you can check out Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, two hip hop legends, together. This is the best show I've ever seen.. They have an intro video (who was banished from everyone under the age of 17) which rocks... I can't even describe.
The image is great, cameras change quickly... It's like a 150 minute videoclip. The 5.1 Surround Sound is awesome too, you feel like you are in the middle of the crowd, seeing these hip hop legends singing. Plus there are lots of backstage scenes, so you can see what stars do backstage...
It's explicit because there is a lot of cussing and a lot of naked women. Just that...
The extras are mainly the trailer, Snoop Dogg talking, you know, nothing big.. But just to watch this show is a reason to buy it. Highly recommended. Five stars, extra fun for hip hop fans, lots of fun to non-hip hop fans.
This DVD, insofar as it compares to other concert discs, is phenomenal. I was unfortunately out of the country during the Up In Smoke tour, so I'm not sure how it compares to the real thing, but I am, needless to say, very happy with the DVD. Dolby Digital surround is utilized on this disc to its fullest potential -- a rarity indeed amongst concert DVDs. The mains and center typically handle all the vocals and instrumentation, while the surrounds handle crowd noise, as well as the occasional vocal effect or turntable manouver by the DJ; while the effect is more than a bit artificial at times, it's a lot of fun, and generally not overused.
The concert footage appears to have been filmed mainly in 35mm, with bits of video spliced in here and there. The picture is widescreen, which is another rarity amongst concert discs, albeit non-anamorphic. Editing is extremely tight -- you can tell a music video director (namely, Philip Atwell) put this together. Lots of angles are utilized (they must have been running 8+ cameras on stage at times) and wide and crowd shots are used very effectively. Diversions from the main concert program are brief and well-suited. While the programming on this disc clearly does not include the entire tour set, all the key performances from Ice Cube, Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg are here.
My only major beefs with the disc are 1. that the image is non-anamorphic (meaning in laymen's terms that it looks like crap on a widescreen TV) and 2. that a DTS soundtrack wasn't included.Read more ›
