To me, this is one of the top five albums of all time and quite possibly the best album ever to be made in the ‘70s. The Classic Album Series is a series of documentaries on DVD that delves deep into the details of records that we’ve all probably owned at one time or another. Spending 741 consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top 200 list, this record by far has spent more time on the charts by far than any other record released and is considered by many audio enthusiasts to be one of the most important albums in history, but do ...

Reilly, supporting actress Queen Latifah, screenwriter Bill Condon (adapted from the stage musical by director/choreographer/writer Bob Fosse, writer/lyricist Fred Ebb and composer John Kander, which was based on a play, which was in turn based on an actual ‘20s court case) and director Rob Marshall.

title: Drumline 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Nick Cannon, Zoe Saldana, Orlando Jones, Leonard Roberts release year: 2002 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein While most people in American culture are certainly aware on one level or another of college marching bands, most people probably don’t give a lot of thought to what goes in to putting on the musical portion of a university football half-time show (cheerleaders are another matter). “Drumline,” among other things, does a good deal to wipe away our ignorance on this point, becoming so fascinating it its details that it elevates what could be just another “Rocky” wannabe movie into something that is honestly engrossing and entertaining on its own terms.

title: West Side Story 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: MGM Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn, Rita Moreno, George Chakiris, Simon Oakland, Ned Glass, William Bramley, Tucker Smith, John Astin release year: 1961 film rating: Four-and-a-half stars sound/picture rating: Four-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren It's hard to imagine any American over the age of, say, 15, who wouldn't have seen "West Side Story" before now -- but if you're one of that handful, or if it's one of your favorite movies, this two-disc "Special Edition" DVD is the ideal means of adding it to your film collection. The color is saturated and beautiful, the wide-screen images (the film was shot in 70mm) are as handsome as they have ever been on home video, and the superbly scored and mixed sound track, with its numerous songs and dances, is reproduced well for home theater systems.

title: DJ Quik Visualism: The Art Of Sound Into Vision 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: Fortress/Image Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: DJ Quik, Suga Free, Hi-C, Nate Dogg, AMG, El Debarge, Butch Cassidy and Chuckey release year: 2003 film rating: One Star sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh This Hip-Hop-umentry never lets you forget that DJ QUIK (real name David Blake) is from the streets of Compton. Heck, one of his biggest songs is even called “Born And Raised In Compton.” You can take the guy out of Compton, I guess, but you can never completely take the Compton out of a gangsta like QUIK. Please don_t be fooled by “DJ QUIK: Visualism”’s arts-y subtitle of “_The Art Of Sound Into Vision,” because this DVD has more to do with thugs, drugs and 40 ounce chugs, than with any kind of relevant music or culture.
