A concert movie on an unprecedented scale, Rattle and Hum captures U2 - on and off the stage - during their triumphant Joshua Tree tour.

Follow the group across America, exploring new influences, playing with the legendary B.B.

(Lyrics excerpt*) - "And, I still haven't found what I'm looking for."

You know - I have never much liked U2, the Irish, pop-rockers.

Someone once said to me - "Anyone who doesn't like U2 isn't human."..... Well, about all that I can say to that is - "Oh, yeah? And, like - The same to you, too!" (Ha! Get it? You, too - U2?... Uh... Never mind)

I mean, if that's really-really this person's narrow-minded, little attitude about U2, then I don't care one frickin' bit if I'm not considered "human" on account of my musical tastes. In my opinion, there's certainly a lot worse things to be called other than "not human". Don't you agree?

Now, don't get me wrong. There are actually a number of U2 tunes that I quite like. It's true. But, when seriously considering this particular rock band, I have to go along with my feelings and say that U2 and their song-writing abilities are far-far too over-rated for my liking.

And, it doesn't help matters much that I totally despise Bono, the posturing, preening lead vocalist in the band. Yeah. I cannot stand this vainglorious, little, strutting peacock with his 'less-than-exceptional' singing-voice.

Yep. Bono is the main reason behind my strong dislike of U2. He's such a snit. And, his real name is Paul David Hewson.

Killer. Tremendous selection of U2 classics from '88. I absolutely loved this DVD. FIVE STARS.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

For any U2 lover, this will be a treasure! Even when I thought I could not love this band anymore, I have found myself further inspired by their creativity and accomplishments.
