Must See Movies–Glee The Concert, On DVD and Blu-Ray



I have been sharing recent press releases and news about Glee and their recently released Glee The Concert DVD.  But, today, I wanted to share my thoughts after watching the DVD over the weekend.

Yes, I am a grown adult and a Gleek!  I admit it, and am proud of it.  If you have seen the television show, you can’t help but sing along to the popular songs they sing.  I find myself singing along and smiling.  The show just puts you in a good mood.

So, as you can imagine, I couldn’t wait to receive the DVD in the mail to review.  And, it was great timing, as we ended up staying in all weekend due to a nasty head cold we have been passing back and forth for a few weeks.  Instead of popcorn and a movie, we sat around the table with warm bowls of chicken noodle soup and watched Glee The Concert.  This is a must-see DVD if you missed the concert when the Glee gang toured last year.  Or, if you were lucky enough to see it live, this DVD will help you relive the toe-tapping fun you had.  From start to finish, I was singing along, while my husband looked at me like I had two heads.  I didn’t care.  Both my daughter and I found the strength to get up and dance to a few songs.  My favorite part was the introductions by Sue Sylvester and the special guest appearance on stage by Gwyneth Paltrow.  Also, there was a young boy who was Blain’s #1 fan.  He dressed up in the same outfit as Blain, and sang and danced along to the performances.  It was so cute to see him, and put a smile on my face, as I turned and watched my daughter point and dance along happily.

This movie has since been watched a few more times, and I know it will be watched again and again, as it offers many of the hit songs from the television show, that us Gleeks have grown to love and watch over and over again.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has teamed with Shazam® to present an industry first – the premiere of the first Shazam-enabled Blu-ray and DVD with the release of GLEE: THE CONCERT MOVIE on December 20th.

GLEE: THE CONCERT MOVIE stars Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith, Chris Colfer, Dianna Agron, Darren Criss, Mark Salling, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris and the rest of the GLEE cast and is packed with new exciting never-before-seen and extended performances, clips of fans’ favorite characters, exclusive extras and more.

Fans watching GLEE: THE CONCERT MOVIE on Blu-ray and DVD will see Shazam prompts on the screen alerting them to a Shazamable moment. Using their smartphones, fans can “tag” the movie when prompted to unlock exclusive content, including:

  • Song lyrics in time with the music using the LyricPlay feature
  • Exclusive behind the scenes footage not seen in theaters
  • Exclusive photos of the cast, and…
  • Trivia about one of FOX’s most popular shows
  • Offers for Glee Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD as well as Glee merchandise

Every time people use Shazam while watching the movie, their tag will live on in their Tag List, giving them access to the extras that they can “snack on” anytime and anywhere, so they can be engaged with the movie even when they’re not near a TV! Additionally, with the Shazam Friends feature, they can share their finds with their Facebook friends.

“The Shazam App lets fans interact with GLEE: THE CONCERT MOVIE in a way that’s never been done before,” said Mary Daily, Executive Vice President, Marketing for Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. “Working with Shazam underscores our commitment to leverage technology innovations to deliver the very best entertainment experiences to fans.”

“Incorporating Shazam for TV into a DVD or Blu-Ray release is a perfect fit for what Shazam is known for – discovering more about entertainment,” said David Jones, Shazam’s Executive Vice President, Marketing. “For many years, people have been using Shazam to unlock information about the songs they love, so working with Fox Home Entertainment to give people a truly interactive experience with the GLEE: THE CONCERT MOVIE DVD is a natural next step in the expansion of what people can do with the Shazam App on their mobile device.”

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD by the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
