lived up to the hype. Big Time.

I am going to buy a Dead Prez cd today after seeing it last night. Fucking fantastic.

4 stars.

2. Nice, I really want to see it.
The fact that it's directed by Michel Gondry just sweetens the deal.

And Dead Prez = awesome.

3. I cannot tell you how good it was.
I think the crowd expected more stand up, but it was all about the music and real people. Best concert movie ever. We had a packed house and they were rowdy before it started, ten minutes in and everyone was just...enthralled. He's a genius.

7. ...or the Shizzle. Or the Shiz-nit.
I'll have to check that film out. I saw the previews when Dave was on Oprah a few weeks ago, and it looked really good. :D

6. I took my dad...
I'm 17, he's 44. He is a big fan of Chappelle's Show (as am I) but he really isn't into alternative hip-hop (he prefers the more 'mainstream' garbage).

It really was a great movie. Mos Def, Kweli, and Ded Prez were especially good. The best thing, however, was getting dad to admit that Mos Def is better than 50 Cent. It was worth it just for that. :P

9. Hiya fleabert
I posted the same sentiments on another db today. Just saw it last night (hadn't even heard any hype) and loved it.

10. hey stranger! It was fantastic, wasn't it?
Entertainment Weekly's review hit the nail on the head!

CAUTION! SPOILERS! Don't click for those who haven't seen it and want to be surprised!
