Simply Red: Home - Live in Sicily [Import] <b>DVD</b> ~ Simply Red
4.0 out of 5 stars Mick is a soul brother, July 8 2004
This is an excellent concert dvd. Sound is DTS quality and filming is wide-screen and first rate. The concert starts a little slow, and song selection could have been a little better. His versions of Positively 4th Street and You Make Me Feel Brand New are outstanding. In my view, his best songs are the more uptempo soul songs. Something Got Me Started here is a perfect example of this. If there were more songs like this, it would be a 5+ star concert. Still, he puts on a great show and sings up a storm. I'm sure Simply Red fans will love it.

In many ways, this concert is very similar to mid-70's Richard Pryor - outrageous, profane, and side-splitting funny. I never thought I'd say this about Chris Rock.

Making fun of white people is OK. Especially when you do it well. The humor here is not just racial - it's about men/women relationships, sex, social commentary and politics too. And lots of profanity. But really no different than most live comedians these days. As a big Richard Pryor fan, and Robin Williams too, this is right up there. From someone… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible!, April 4 2004
Another top notch documentary from American Masters. This biography of G Kelly is just incredible. An excellent review of his life and films. The big ones, like Singing in the Rain and American in Paris, but also many of the lesser known films. Will leave you shaking your head on how anyone could dance like this. As pointed out in the film, his dancing appealed to men as well as women. His physical abilities made dancing look both artistic and athletic. He created dance numbers never tried before, and not seen since on the silver screen. In addition to all this, the film quality is unbelievable. Nearly every movie clip was restored to better than original condition. The colors and… Read more
