More of a music documentary than a concert video, Katy Perry: Part of Me chronicles Perry's year-long California Dreams World Tour in 2011 with an abundance of personal interviews, film of Perry interacting with her fans, and concert footage from California and around the globe. Absolutely bursting with energy, Perry's a fascinating singer, songwriter, and performer who's faced a fair amount of adversity in her career, and whose upbringing was very different than that of most pop stars. This film plays at times almost like a video diary. Perry philosophizes about everything from growing up in a strictly Pentecostal Christian family to her fairy-tale outlook on life, costuming choices, how her own experiences and emotions influence her lyrics and music, her drive to remain true to herself, and the difficulty of sustaining a long-distance marriage with actor Russell Brand. There's also plenty of footage with Perry's costumers, makeup artists, various assistants, and friends, including actress Shannon Woodward. But some of the most interesting interviews are those with her sister Angela Hudson, who travels with show, and her mother and father regarding their commitment to accepting and supporting Perry and her career despite potential conflicts with their religious views. One discussion that's oddly omitted is any hint of why Perry changed her name. While the personal and backstage footage is heartfelt and quite intriguing, the film seemed somewhat lacking in actual concert footage, though viewers are treated to at least parts of "Firework," "California Gurls," "Part of Me," "Last Friday Night," and "Peacock." --Tami Horiuchi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Katy Perry the Movie: Part of Me (2D) arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. Since this is a documentary/concert film, the overall quality is indeed a mix-bag. The concert scenes dazzle, with precision clarity, excellent details and brilliant colours, like Katy’s blue hair and her various colourful costumes. Black levels in these scenes are spot-on, and they nicely balance the gaudy colours and extreme razzle-dazzle on the stage. Viewers will see every little intricate texture around the performance and will be blinded by the dizzying array of colours that define a Katy Perry concert. But some videos taken from cell phones are of lower quality because of its source. The video was an original high definition 3D production done on the Red Epic at 5K, of which we are here reviewing the plain old 2D release (a 3D Blu-ray is also available, but at much higher price). Katy Perry’s Part of Me looks about as good as any documentary/concert movie could look. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio lossless tracks are well done, especially in the concert sequences. The obvious highlight is the assortment of on-stage Katy Perry performances, clipped from her whirlwind 2011 tour. Not only are they a visual treat, but the audio is simply superb. There is a faultless presence and clarity to the music. It is expertly spaced and completely immersive, pulsating and stretching to the sides and implementing a big surround support element that feels natural and, along with crowd noise, absolutely immerses the listener into front row of the concert hall. The music is largely defined by its positive, tight, and strong rattling bass. All the different instruments are clearly heard. Katy Perry’s singing voice stands out…crystal clear. Dialogue is well defined.Read more ›
The next best thing for most of us is going to the concert and hoping that one day, maybe.. you could be one of the lucky few who make it all the way backstage and meet your inspiration, or would you meet them randomly somewhere? It happens.
Here then is a rare opportunity to do something similar, experience Katy Perry in concert and get a backstage pass and a fly on the wall behind the scenes look at the California Dreams tour.
I will be the first to admit that I am not Katy Perry's number one fan. I don't own any of her albums, but I do respect her accomplishments, and admire her charisma and presence and the fact that she did manage to get five number ones singles off her Teenage Dreams album.
In so doing she matched an accomplishment only ever achieved by Michael Jackson for Bad.
Her number one Billboard singles were: Last Friday Night (TGIF), California Gurls (featuring Snoop Dogg), the anthemic Firework, E.T (featuring Kanye West) and Teenage Dream.
As a writer I loved her use her use of alliteration on songs such as Hummingbird Heartbeat, and cherry chapstick on I Kissed a Girl.
Part of me is combination biography, concert tour, real life drama. I loved watching the performances and I think she is a tremendous songwriter with one of the best voices in the business.
The bio part shows that overnight success only came after years of hard work, struggle and rejection. It's an inspiring story about persisting against the odds.Read more ›
