    Better than it had any right to be, while still dumb as fuck. Jackie Chan softly bops a cowboy hat and says “Welcome to New York”. It’s great.

    Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé


    Good footage of an excellent performance, with maybe the most songs per minute of any concert film ever. It’s worth viewing solely to hear what it’s like to have a 40-peice live band interpolate five different songs at once - and sure you could just listen to the album for that, but the dancing is uniformly incredible.

    I’m glad to see that I am not alone in my surprise at how much of this movie is made up of musical numbers! 

    Even more shocking: all the songs are great, and there’s a character called The Salmon of Knowledge, so you can’t really hold a grudge at how messy and inconsequential the whole thing is.
