I am so torn over this movie...
14 July 2005 | by (Dayton, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I love Pavement. They are absolutely one of my favorite bands. This DVD, though, is just simply awful. The videos are good to have, and for that I'm grateful. But the documentary is so boring and shot so poorly. The live concert sound is terrible and doesn't do Pavement justice at all.

I'm also not a big fan of back-in-the-day documentaries, I guess. I like seeing things as they unfold, not watch people reminisce about the past. This band, more than any other, deserves better.

Rate this TEN for Pavement, and MINUS ONE for the documentary. Hence, a four.
