After having seen the film many many times, I decided to own the DVD. The only negative I can think of is that the interviews are a fraction of the volume of the live performances, so I found myself turning up and down every 3 minutes. Despite this, it's a great package with the Extra Tap disc and the deleted scenes are brilliant. A real treat. A lot of these outtakes deserve to be in the film and compare very well when viewed immediately after the film itself. So there you are, a DVD of pure comic genius and worth every penny!

This great spoof 'rock-u-mentary' is played dead straight and totally for laughs. It's not rock journalists with their desire to 'hand out' that's put under the spotlight, and so the filmmaker/interviewer is purely there to let the band speak for themselves, and thereby take the mickey out of 'prog rock'- with all its pretensions. This can be a relief; several other moc-docs have moved the 'filmmakers' themselves into greater prominence - and in the case of The Blair Witch, to being the complete substance of the film (it might act for the suggestible adolescent, but to anyone else it wasn't worth one ounce of the hype). Mind you the exploration of the complicity which often exists between documentary-maker and subject can lead to both greatly added depth and an appeal to post-modern sensibilities; two examples which particularly spring to mind are 'Man Bites Dog' and 'Diary of a Bad Lad' - both often hilarious but with so much more to say. And it's this lack of self-reflection which does result in Spinal Tap being rather superficial and one-dimensional, so 4 stars rather than 5.

This is Spinal Tap is truly a brilliant piece of satirical comedy inspiring many other directors and producers for years to come. Its' unique look at Rock Bands, coupled with flawless acting by all involved, makes this not only hilarious but also incredibly believable as well (which of course only furthers the brilliant jokes within.)

This 25th Anniversary Edition wonderfully preserves the film and it's legacy with many interesting behind-the-scenes and the come-back tours that 'Spinal Tap' performed at, making this a fans' dream. If you have ever been lucky enough to see this film before then you've probably already clicked Add to Cart by now. To those of you wishing to experience this for the first time, this is definitely the way to do it.
