Though it just missed being number one at the box office for its Labor Day weekend opening, grossing almost $19 million, and though fans of the band might inflict bodily harm on anyone who would dare to suggest otherwise, is “One Direction: This is Us” indeed the best concert movie ever made?
Let us know what concert films you think are more deserving of a Zippo lighter salute and an encore. Include them in the comments section or drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is Monday, September 9 and we’ll be running the top five on September 15. [Shown is the trailer from my own nostalgic favorite, Larry Peerce’s “The Big T.N.T. Show” (1966)]
