title: Lil’ Beethoven: Live In Stockholm 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: SRO Standing Room Only Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Sparks TV broadcast year: n/a DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh This performance DVD was filmed in March of 2004 at the Sodra Teatern in Stockholm, Sweden, and captures the wonderfully quirky duo of Sparks at its best. This sibling act, comprised of brothers Ron and Russell Mael, has been making its perverse little brand of music since 1970, and comes off here just as sarcastic, funny, smart and insightful as ever.

title: Dig! 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: Palm Pictures MPAA rating: R starring: Anton Newcombe, Courtney Taylor film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh “Dig!” began innocently enough as director Ondi Timoner’s attempt to study a collection of new bands trying to make it in the L.A. music scene. But during this inclusive filmmaking endeavor, two particular groups stood out markedly from the pack. The first is The Dandy Warhols, led by the quietly charismatic Courtney Taylor. The other significant band, spearheaded by Anton Newcombe, is The Brian Jonestown Massacre. The stories of these wonderfully-named bands makes for truly fascinating documentary material and turn “Dig!” into must-see viewing for any self-respecting rock music fan.

title: Morrissey - Who Put the M in Manchester? 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: Sanctuary MPAA rating: NR starring: Morrissey film release year: N/A DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh If you’ve ever attended a Morrissey concert, no doubt you’ve also noticed the steady stream of fans, both male and female, that fight their way onto the stage just to hug and be hugged by Morrissey. During the performance documented on this DVD, which was filmed in the artist’s English home country, not even one stage-seeker succeeds in his or her flesh-pressing quest. But maybe this omission only enhances the home viewer’s experience, since it is a concert DVD that focuses solely on the man and his music, rather than the oddball culture that surrounds his fame.

Gram Parsons was a renegade musician who embraced both country music and rock ‘n’ roll, as well as R&B, in a time when that wasn’t necessarily so cool. I mean, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones would throw you bone or two of country riffs on an album, but a whole album’s worth? The Grateful Dead certainly embraced it more than most rock bands of the time did, but even they were always first and foremost a rock band. But Parsons was ...

title: Metallica - Some Kind Of Monster 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Bob Rock film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey What the heck happened to Metallica? Although the scoreboard has them perched high atop the charts as the highest-selling heavy metal band of all time, seeing even just a few minutes of the band in the studio, it’s obvious that the creative juices are gone. In “Some Kind of Monster,” a shockingly imitative documentary by filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, Metallica lets fans and critics into the studio, their homes, their personal lives and more during the span of several years that it took to record their latest album, titled St. Anger.
