Anyway will give it a higher rating than it deserves cause it is Jim and The Doors ...
A dude called Ferrara who was a friend of The Doors is the author of this piece of "cinema" which quite rightly others here have deemed to be of average GCSE class level ...
well it is very poor indeed; the man had no sense of framing /rhythm/distance ; not a cinematographer of any description; he must have been a really good friend to let him do that :]
But and that is not all that is wrong here
None of the footage is new "you've seen this entertainment through and through" :] if you have a copy of the 30 years commemorative edition from 2001 which contains Live @ The Hollywood Bowl/Dance on Fire and The Soft Parade you have definitely seen this entertainement b4
Bruce Botnick "remastered" the original ANALOG sound to some paperthin metallic silk digital soup I respect my ears far too much to pour this into; remastering is 99% of the time code for forking up something that was perfectly fine. I have the 30 year box in VHS so the sound is always better on VHS not the picture
so we come to the picture. Well the kbps on the copy I watched was upwards of 16000 which is overkill for my needs but might be great on one of those newfangled huge screens folks use and might justify the price of getting a new copy
But seriously what is new here? I saw nothing i had not seen before. The hidef segment of The End which basically takes over a third
if not more of the film is really hidef and beautiful really
Thing is there is NO new Doors and should we be surprised here
Record companies will re-issue everything always on newest formats and "remaster" until the cows come home blue in the face and hung over like Jim but really why bother?
