Green Day The Boys Are Back In Town (Music Video Distributors DVD Set)

 

Picture: C+/C Sound: C+/C Extras: D Main Programs: B/C-

 

 

Music Video Distributors combines two of their previous DVD releases on Green Day in time for the release of their latest album. One is the solid Under Review installment on the band we previously covered at this link:

That features coverage of the Middle Years from 1995 2000. Pogo Paradise is an older program with none of their music (good thing the other disc has plenty) and is for completists only. Except for some old interview footage of the band, it is lame overall.

 

The 1.33 X 1 image of the newer disc is very soft and dated, matching it low-budget production values. Editing and taping of the analog NTSC video is weak, it looks weak and the addition of analog video effects are very dated. The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is rarely stereo and always flawed. There are no extras. Big fans will want the set, but the rest are better off settling for the Under Review disc separately.
