Still, it’s an interesting collection of performances that continues to delight. The Cirque du Soleil troupe still gets mileage out of the Love show, while McCartney gets a chance to perform for a quarter of the show. Sergio Mendes, Norah Jones and Neil Young get to turn in stunning turns as well. Outside of that, don’t expect anything that isn’t low key.

I guess they’re saving the big showy numbers for Ringo when his time comes. The Blu-Ray comes with no special features, however there is something that irks me about it. My system couldn’t tell whether the transfer was 1080p or 1080i, various points of the show kept causing a different read and I don’t know what could be causing that. Still, it’s a fun live music presentation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]”Diamond Heist” is about Michael Madsen and Vinnie Jones surviving the game in London. They are former diamond smugglers that are trying to recover some dancers in England. The film has almost no plot, as it’s a mix of two bad asses trying their best to keep this film from going off the rails. I wish there was something else I could say about it, but I’m pulling up nothing. The special features are non-existent, but the A/V Quality holds up.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” image=”70171″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” image=”70174″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]”Sunken Ship Rescue” is the latest PBS outing about the Costa Concordia. As someone who had to write a major paper about the International Business implications of the wreck, I’m beyond sick of talking about the incident. That being said, PBS manages to frame a new approach to the matter over the course of an hour. Most of it is a fresh recap of the lives lost and environmental impact. What makes this documentary so effective is examining how it happened and could happen again. The A/V Quality holds up and I’d recommend it for a purchase.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]”Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXII” is a collection of lesser outings. Still, it was neat to see Gene Hackman and so many future stars in “Space Travelers”. Most of the jokes fell flat, but that wasn’t what sold this release for me. The special features focusing on Joseph Levine and the background behind the four movies selected was far more interesting. This was more of a production release than quality of content. The A/V Quality continues to pop and blow me away. I just wish that Shout would eventually ready HD releases if the source material is there.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” image=”70175″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Release Date: 03/24/2015[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
