The 3-D Movie: Extended Edition

I would like to be in a band, although I’m pretty sure that I’m not musical enough to do so.  I just find that life slightly appealing, getting to be creative and having others enjoy my creativity and maybe make their lives better or at least more enjoyable.  I wouldn’t want to dress all cool, which actually looks lame, or stay up all night and party.  I just think it would be sweet to be appreciated artistically.  Now there’s a new chance for your kids to see how far those bounds of the idea of a “respected artist” can be stretched and just how lame they really do dress.

Starting this August 19th, now available on DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment comes the most anticipated concert movie of a long time, at least among the tween set.  Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus – Best Of Both Worlds Concert – The 3D Movie is ready to burst into your living room with its silly backstage shots, musical numbers, special guests and awesome 3D action.  Bring home this music filled DVD today!

Quite simply, this movie is footage from one of the concerts on a tour which went coast to coast and was completely sold out the whole while.  Hannah Montana comes out and sings a few songs, then the Jonas Brothers appear and sing some songs with her, then they sing by themselves for a couple of songs, then Miley Cyrus comes out and sings a few songs and it’s all over.  There is all sorts of footage interspersed between the musical numbers.  These include looks behind the scenes, footage of preparation and practice for the show, joking around and having fun and all others sorts of fun things. 

The special features included in this DVD are that there are two discs, one is the standard 2D movie, the other is the fantastical 3D film experience.  The DVD includes a set of four 3D glasses to watch the second disc through.  There is also a selection of additional songs which are not a part of the normal DVD, along with the ability to sing along with the DVD.  Finally, there is a special featurette which highlights spending a day with Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.

So, I don’t understand how all of Miley Cyrus’s friends on the television show aren’t able to figure out that she’s Hannah Montana.  The difference is only a blonde wig.  If that was really something which prevented all recognition, I’m sure that cross-dressing would be at record numbers.  I was not impressed very much with the music on this DVD, but I didn’t expect to be.  It just smacks on entitlement to see Miley strutting all over the stage singing her corporate pop.  She’s a ready made star, she didn’t work her way up.  It was given to her on a silver platter.  How can that be fulfilling to someone who at least pretends to be musician?  I don’t understand it.  I also don’t understand how kids are so nuts for this music.  It’s nothing spectacular, but they eat it up like candy.  I can’t recommend this DVD, but I won’t think any less of you if you end up buying it.

It’s not the Best, but it’s entertaining.

This DVD is available at Amazon.com.
