Their fans are legion and loyal. With the advent of the DVD medium, several live concerts as well as music specials have been recorded by a number of bands and released to collectors of the visual medium, but the added bonus for music aficionados is the sound quality carried through on a DVD disc.

They also inspired (albeit did not directly parent) “Grease,” the 1978 movie musical based on a stage hit that parodies the earlier era while incorporating elements of the year the film was made – for starters, the title track, written specifically for the movie by the BeeGees, is pure ‘70s. The movie is so beloved in many quarters that to gripe about it seems like complaining about a national institution (which, for many people, it is). If “Happy Days” was your favorite TV show, if you loved not just Elvis’ music but his movies, if you wholeheartedly can enjoy what is referred to as “wholesome” (well, mostly wholesome – teen ...

title: Iron Maiden: Rock In Rio 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: CMV/Columbia MPAA rating: NR starring: Steve Harris, Bruce Dickinson, Janick Gers, Dave Murray, Nicko McBrain and Adrian Smith release year: 2002 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh When you look at these many thousands of people huddled together in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to watch British metal icons Iron Maiden perform in this DVD concert, you get the uneasy feeling that new music must have stopped crossing this South American country’s borders right around about 1980. Although their fans’ tastes in music haven’t evolved a whole lot over the last few decades or so, the members of the Maiden certainly show signs of oncoming old age. Only singer Bruce Dickinson – seen here bouncing enthusiastically around the stage in shorts – appears to have slowed down the aging process somewhat. But drummer Nicko McBrain looks eerily similar to the way Howard Hughes must have appeared during his last days of ...

The Catholic Action Committee sends three nuns (Mary Tyler Moore, Barbara McNair and Jane Elliot) undercover (pre-Vatican II, the nuns abandon their habits in an attempt to get the neighborhood to accept them as women and nurses first, without the authority --or protection -- their black and white garb commands) as nurses to the clinic in an experiment to help "clean up" the neighborhood.

title: Hedwig And The Angry Inch (Platinum Edition) 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: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: John Cameron Mitchell release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is one of those movies with an essence that is especially hard to pin down in a review. This isn’t because "Hedwig" is amorphous or lacking in incident, but rather because a description of the story and character details tends to seem at odds with the actual tone. There are comparisons to be drawn with other works – "Hedwig" has plenty of familiar elements – but ultimately, this project is so singular that any parallels cited are likely to be misleading.
