title: Glastonbury Anthems: The Best of Glastonbury 1994-2004 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Capital/EMI MPAA rating: NR starring: Franz Ferdinand, Travis, Faithless, Manic Street Preachers, Moby, Robbie Williams, Supergrass, Ash, Levellers, Primal Scream, The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Coldplay, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, The Prodigy, Blur, Placebo, Radiohead, Paul McCartney DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh To a young Anglophile, The Glastonbury Festival stood out as something foreign and mysterious, and its self-contained musical universe was the kind of thing this American-bred boy dreamed about both night and day. Everybody around the world has always looked to the United States for musical inspiration, yet Americans have somehow been extremely slow to catch onto the benefits of the whole festival scene. Sure, we’ve had our Woodstock, which was amazingly good the first time around, and a total disaster with its recent anniversary celebration. Lollapalooza has been hit or miss throughout its lifetime, and Altamont, well, the less said about that one, ...

title: The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Shout! Factory MPAA rating: NR starring: Malcom McLaren, Steve Jones, Sid Vicious, Paul Cook, Johnny Rotten film release year: 1980 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Two and a Half Stars sound/picture: One and a Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas       This classic and very true “rockumentary” features the Sex Pistols, is about the Sex Pistols, and is, for the most part, by the Sex Pistols. Director Julien Temple combines television and film concert footage with a series of set-ups and pseudo-interviews to tell the fictionalized story of the rise and fall of the Sex Pistols. The band members all have their own roles as they perpetrate the Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle. Malcolm McLaren serves as the main “narrator,” if you will, as he tells his short muse some of the things that made the Sex Pistols who they were. For instance, you want at least one member of the band who doesn’t add ...

title: The Fearless Freaks function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Shout! Factory MPAA rating: NR starring: Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd, Michael Ivins film release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Two Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “The Fearless Freaks” is a documentary about the colorful and inventive rock band The Flaming Lips. Made by the same director of “Okie Noodling,” the cultish documentary about bare-handed catfishing, and the majority of the band’s videos, this very intimate and in-depth look provides very extensive interviews with all members of the group, both past and present.

title: Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation: London Invasion 1987 function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Slam Media MPAA rating: NR starring: Public Enemy film release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: One Star sound/picture: Half Star reviewed by: Paul Lingas       The most gratifying and interesting aspect of this rundown DVD is its nostalgic value as an artifact of musical history. The three main members of Public Enemy, Chuck D, Flavor-Flav and Terminator X, have gone on to do various things in their lives and careers, including romantic interludes with Brigitte Nielsen, but this DVD shows them in the early years of their prime, assaulting the London stage for the first time in their careers. The extremely poor quality of the sound and video does the main disservice of making the group seem more dated than they actually are.

title: The Phantom Of The Opera function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Miranda Richardson, Minnie Driver film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Composer/producer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s quasi-rock opera “The Phantom of the Opera,” with lyrics by Charles Hart, loosely based on the novel by Gaston Leroux, opened on stage in London in 1986 and proceeded to become a hit of gargantuan proportions, running for years in the West End, Broadway and Los Angeles (to name a few cities). Although Leroux’s novel has been adapted for stage and screen many times before (very famously on film with Lon Chaney as the Phantom, and into a satirical filmic rock opera by Brian De Palma and Paul Williams), it’s safe to say no earlier movie version got this kind of build-up. So … how does the new filmic “Phantom” fare?
