Music may be the focus of Drumline, but it's color that stands out on the DVD. The 2.35:1 anamorphic image (a cropped pan-and-scan version is also offered) is a real delight, and as just mentioned, the colors are vivid, well-saturated, and perfectly realized. Detail is equally strong, and skin tones look completely natural. The 5.1 Dolby Digital mix is also very good, though centered up front a little too much. Surrounds are employed infrequently, though effectively, during those limited times. Dialogue is clear throughout, and the marching band music -- the drums in particular -- has a lot of energy, giving the film extra life. As for extras, there aren't many, but the few that are offered aren't too bad. First up is an insightful commentary from director Charles Stone III. He covers all parts of the production, and is a very intelligent, factual commentator, though his vocal approach isn't really enthusiastic. A 20-minute BET featurette provides far more plot synopsis from the stars and main production crew than needed but still has some interesting interviews and behind-the-scenes shots. Next up are ten fairly decent deleted scenes with optional commentary from the director. Finally, along with a trailer for Antwone Fisher (there isn't one for this film), are music videos for "I Want a Girl Like You" by Joe, featuring Jadakiss, and "Blowin' Me Up (With Her Love)" by JC Chasez. All in all, this is a nice package for a very engaging film.

this movie stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am in a band but play the violin... We have had to watch this movie ten times and it is so boring... B-O-R-I-N-G it has no real theme and the characters were played horrible and bratty... I hate this movie and I advie you not to watch it
This movie is one sick beast. Any more great, it would be a legend. Nick cannon has risin up from a nickelodeon home boy to the baddest of drummers. This movie is the best music movie anywere.
I am so impressed with the talent in this movie. I have watched it on TV two or three times and I have to own it. It is so uplifting! JLS 5/18/06
A truly, truly great movie. The charm and appeal of black colleges is on full display. It was a typical hollywood story, completely predictable. However, it is CAPTIVATING, with heart-warming characters, the suspense of competition and artistry only found in black southern colleges marching bands. Hollywood finally found an great light-hearted black movie without preachy-ness or buffoonery. This should be this generations answer to ''A Different World'' and spark interest in the culture of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The only problem I had with the movie is that most of the deleted scenes should have been included, even if that made the movie a little longer.
My new favorite movie. Within the past few days, I've watched it four times and each time have discovered something or someone new. Extremely talented actors. They deserve kudos for this one.
This movie is a true ''band nerd'' movie complete with some of the most amazing drumming I've seen in years. It is so refreshing to see people in a movie about CREATING something rather than destroying it.
I didn't think this was going to really be a movie I would pick up myself to watch but friends encouraged me to watch so ended up getting it...but after i watched it...it was the BEST show i've seen in a long time...it was a movie that kept your attention throughout the whole movie but i advise everyone to pick this one up soon or later...
This is a decent movie. I am a music major in college and was a hardcore marching bander in high school. My band was definitely intense but I can say that the way they portrayed the way they dealt with the band was unrealistic. The only thing that is true is "One band, one sound." The music was decent but not spectacular and the issue of learning classics versus doing the fun yet crappy music was realistic as it will always occur. I hate how throughout the movie, they portray the main character, Devon, as a genius that has the enemy of authority. However, one cannot succeed- especially in music- unless you open your eyes and realize what you need to do to really learn.
Drumline is a none stop laughing movie it was one of the best movies that have came out this year.
This DVD was a tremendous about of fun. As a lover of drums and having seen some of the best drummers compete in the world, it was a real thrill to watch young performers work at their craft and love it. That is what music is all about. If you have not seen this, it is a must for anyone who loves music, and particularly, anyone who understands the power of the Drumline.
I THOUGHT THIS MOVIE WAS TIGHT BECAUSE NICK CANNON WAS SO FUNNY. I THINK THAT EVERYBODY HAD A GOOD ROLE IN THIS MOVIE. I THOUGHT THAT THE WHOLE MOVIE WAS FUNNY.
This is a bangging movie. A lot of people look at the movies as a cool movie with no meaning, but if you listen you will see that they were stressing something. ONE SOUND, ONE BAND. Now if we took it into our own hands, and keep this in everyones mind. We should be one world , one nation together. They said that at a time the countries were all connected together. Why can't we get along.
very teribible thats all I can say. I hated it like, thiiiiis much.
I would just like let you know this was awesome. When is the next drumline addition? Mr. Cannon you played a great part. Very nice. I have watched this movie about 30 or more times now. Sorry, lost count. Way to go.
I love this movie. When you get to the end of the movie, you can't stop watching it. This is the best movie I ever bought in my entire life.
