Hard Core Logo Bruce McDonald

Hard Core Logo Bruce McDonald
Bruce McDonald's rock'n'roll mockumentary Hard Core Logo remains an engaging document of washed-up overgrown adolescents coming to terms with their broken teenage dreams and dysfunctional relationships, but its arrival on DVD is sadly, a disappointment. Presented in full-screen format (a DVD don't), its appearance as a two-disc set is deceptive — the second disc is merely the "tribute" album released to coincide with its theatrical run (featuring Dream Warriors, Fishbone, Super Friendz, 54-40, Kinnie Starr and others). The DVD offers little in terms of other add-ons — a poorly recorded gang-up commentary track where no one is identified and lead actor and Headstones front-man Hugh Dillon just shouts everyone down quickly gets tired. Worse still is the fact that much of the discussion surrounds how fascinating missing scenes are, none of which are found here. A trailer, a faux Hard Core Logo video and a Headstones video is all we're left with. Hardcore disappointment. Extras: "tribute" CD; trailer; Headstones video; Hard Core Logo video; writer/director/actor commentary. (Shadow Shows/VSC)
