89. Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop (Available to stream on Netflix, available to rent digitally from Amazon)

Here is the trailer for Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop is a documentary that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the aftermath of Conan’s shortened Tonight Show run and following nationwide tour.  As someone who has never been a huge Conan person (although I was completely Team Coco while he was getting screwed by NBC), this was an interesting look at the man tied to all of the drama.

So, the beginning of the film gives us a short recap of the drama with NBC that led to Conan O’Brien walking away with $45 million, which we know now turned into a deal for him to do a show on TBS.  Soon after the end of his Tonight Show run, the tour was conceived and rehearsals began.  We are exposed to Andy Richter, Conan’s new backup singers/dancers, and his long-suffering (but hopefully well-paid) assistant, Sona.

So, Conan is really funny, but at times, incredibly exasperating.  He sells out most of the tour within minutes, and the audiences clearly love him.  He seems to be too annoyed about meeting fans and doing meet-and-greets.  Cut to Conan saying how he will never say no to someone but while he is saying it, it seems that he is relaying that he HATES it.  It sort of ruined the movie for me.  I’m sure the intent was not to make people think that Conan is a big d-bag, but it sort of made the rest of the movie hard to watch. I’m sure hardcore Conan fans will be all over this though.

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop is available on DVD from Amazon for $16.99.

Concert movies count as movies right?

The Palladia network was showing Pink’s Funhouse Tour Live in Australia and so I watched it.

Here’s the trailer for the DVD:

14. Pink, Funhouse Tour Live in Australia (Not available to stream on Netflix)

I’m assuming that many people who aren’t into pop music would write Pink off as one in a group of female pop stars.  However, you don’t have to go too far beyond that to find out that she is a pretty fantastic singer and songwriter.  This show takes it to a whole new level, as you find out that she’d be just as great as a member of the circus.  Her aerial abilities are demonstrated throughout the show, and amazingly, she sings while she’s doing it all!

Here’s a video of Pink, performing “Sober” while flying around, hanging upside down, etc.  Amazing.  This is from a European stop on her tour.

So I would definitely recommend a viewing of this to anyone who wants to see a really great show.  Pink sings, has personality, dances, has personality and showcases her amazing body.  I liked her a lot before, she seemed to buck the system just enough so that she is still successful but in such a way that she still gets to be herself.

Get to watching this!

The Pink, Funhouse Tour Live in Australia DVD is available from Amazon for $25.98.
