Big Snoop Dogg’s Puff Puff Pass Tour
D Sound: D Extras: D Main
Doggy Dogg continues to issue DVDs and this reissue of his Puff Puff Pass
Tour program, that poses as a concert but is a pro-drug propaganda program,
is sadly back. Obviously, Snoop has
been making a name for himself in non-music titles for a few years now, and we
are not talking about his acting career.
His tour might have been good, but you cannot tell from this in any way,
shape or form.
video lacks the direction, production value, and creativity that every consumer
deserves and expects when purchasing a DVD. This DVD will probably be marketed
as a concert tour video but it is in fact a behind the scenes look at the
concert tour. There is minimal
worthwhile video of the concerts at all.
Instead, it follows Snoop on a city-to-city rampage without much of a
storyline at all while bouncing back and forth between events that occur
throughout the tour while propagandizing for why marijuana should be legalized.
production value is so low that the only segment with somewhat acceptable audio
quality is the main menu (i.e., the whole 30 second loop of it). The rest of the audio sounds like it were
taken directly from the $200.00 camcorder that captured it. A DVD of this low quality should upset every
professional in the business. When
Snoop Dogg and his cronies allow someone to take their personal cheap camera
equipment with them on tour and then call the content they obtain professional,
it places high-end competitors in jeopardy. If someone insists on creating
something of this caliber then it comes down to the consumers to send a loud
and clear message. This message is best
sent by NOT purchasing this DVD, and the Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is as in
vein. It is one of the worse attempts
to do a remix from an inferior source you could imagine, from the same ultra
low budget source. This will in turn
tell the industry that as consumers, we will not stand for poor quality work.
If this DVD makes a lot of money, it will only be a matter of time before
everyone who can will start making videos on their camcorders and marketing
them as professional quality. Eagle
Vision has some of the best DVDs around.
This is not one of them.
