For 90 minutes, Glee fans get to get up close and personal via director Kevin Tancharoen‘s (I pray I’m spelling this right) vision for Glee: The Concert Movie.
Glee The Concert Movie Review
The format of this DVD (or Blu-Ray) may seem unusual at first. This was the Glee concert performed at the Ozod Center in New Jersey, in June 2011. And though there is no plot within the framework of the TV show, everyone is in their TV show character persona’s for the entire show. If you think too hard about it, (why would small town kids from Ohio who didn’t even make it big at regional’s be having this huge concert, with all of these fans and security?) your brain will start to hurt. Because here’s the most important thing: it doesn’t make sense. Once you let go of that, you can simply enjoy it.

As one Glee fan to another, we all know that the point of the show is not about over-analyzing inconsistencies, it’s about experiencing joy. Or, dare I say it, glee! What you get on this disc are full-songs (“Sing” “River Deep, Mountain High” “Born This Way”) with their performances that are mixed in with short interviews of Glee fans, and with the members of the Glee club.
For those who turn a cold shoulder to the idea of a feel good movie that may not have as much emotional depth as glossy joy, Glee The Concert Movie will be completely missable. For for those Glee fans who have been gung-ho about embracing the series, its’ positive messages and outlook as a way of life – this will be one more piece to the big, priceless picture.
