4 stars Time to add yet another 4-star rating to the mix here. I picked up the movie on DVD not too long ago (it's also some limited special edition type thing) after wondering for a long time what it must be like. One of my friends had been preaching this movie to me for long time, seeing as he is a huge Floyd fan and basically considers this movie the greatest movie ever. So, seeing it in the store, I figure "Hey, might as well, it's about time." Put it on the next day.

First off, it's a different movie. Good movie. Different movie. Weird movie. But still a good movie. It's difficult to describe, because you give a band like Pink Floyd a chance to make a movie, and... well, here's the result. Some adults I know who are aware of this movie believe that you have to be high to understand this movie. As for me, I have never been high and I strongly plan on never becoming high, and this movie made sense to me. I guess the parts that lose them are the extended animation sections that have seemingly no point whatsoever.

I am a firm believer that the whole concept of The Wall album is one of the best in music history. Seeing it put to film is fascinating, especially if you truly know the storyline before watching the movie, as I did. It is also interesting to see different things not apparent in the music brought into the story. This movie is easily understood if you can think differently when needed.

If you know and love Floyd, as I do, get it. This is my opinion, at least. Yes, it may make you cringe at points (I did), but it's what Floyd is all about on The Wall. Easy rating for me. 4/5 stars.
