5.0 out of 5 stars What a Show!, 15 Nov. 2002
This review is from: The Last Waltz [1978] [DVD] (DVD)
What can I say really. Mix together the most talented musicians of their time along with the most talented film maker of the time and you get The Last Waltz.
The Band are at their best here and the special guests only enhance the spectacular talent of these guys. Everywhere the guests are outshone by Robbie and the boys, however Van Morrison's performance is amazing by any standard and even the Band themselves look at him in awe.
The special features are interesting. Interviews with Martin Scorsese and Robbie Robertson are a good insight into how a farewell concert became a piece of musical history. There is also a well stocked photo gallery, commentary by the film maker and musician and a short jamming session by some of the guests. This is a must have for every DVD collection. Buy it, keep it, show it to your kids and make sure you follow the instructions: THIS FILM SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boy's are back, 18 Sept. 2002
Having already purchased the previous two DVD sets I couldn't wait to get my hands on the third. Just as I remembered this show only gets better. The relationships between the main characters really come into their own from series 3 onwards. Shaw and Collins seem settled in their roles by this stage and that shines through bringing an onscreen chemistry that is second to none. The writing also continues to underline the pseudo-gay relationship between the boys and the actors camp it up beautifully. We also see a strenghtening of the boys father/son relationship with Cowley. Episodes that I recommend for starters are 'Mixed Doubles', 'The Purging of CI5' and 'Involvement'. I now wait with baited breath for series 4 and the unforgettable 'Discovered in a Graveyard'. Long live The Cow and his Calves.
