TURN-ONS AND TURN-OFFS IN CURRENT HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES : Excellent Good Fair Poor : VIDEOCASSETTES

September 16, 1986|RICHARD CROMELIN | Compiled by Terry Atkinson

"George Clinton With Parliament-Funkadelic--The Mothership Connection." Sony. $16.95. The connection is tenuous in this 30-minute "video EP," which plods out of the starting gate with 18 minutes of poorly shot, sloppily directed concert footage. Just as you're wondering how someone with Clinton's musical and visual showmanship can come off so dull, the live segment ends and he blows you away with two amazing videos--"Atomic Dog" and "Double Oh Oh Bulletproof"--that are complex, witty, wild, politically pointed and, in one case, close-captioned for the funk-impaired.
