    If you're not a big fan of Gaga, or even if you think she's Madonna lite, this HBO concert film will make you a true believer--or a believer, at any rate.

    Filled with more shoulder pads than an episode of The Golden Girls, the special is actually at its best between songs when Gaga dishes out hilarious asides like "The only thing better than a unicorn is a gay unicorn."

    Unsurprisingly, HBO's Lady Gaga Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden raises more questions about Stefani Germanotta than it answers, which is probably as it should be.

    You just have to wade through a landfill of lame camp and gratuitous weirdness to get to the pop center of Gaga's HBO show.

    It's just an amazing show. She does what she knows to do. It's amazing the way she feels the emotions of her fans and the way she sings. She DOES have voice not like the others... Expand

    The concert in general, the stage, the lights, the dancers, the music, and of course, Gaga, makes this show flawless and with little messages, the audience goes crazy, dancing, smiling and happy, Gaga knows how to perform! Expand

    I'm 65 and thought I might hate it, but it works if you think of it as musical theater. The first half was too techno for my tastes but in the latter half when Gaga talked a lot to the audience I got into it more, but Gaga's ego can be off-putting. She does have talent and works hard for the audience. Expand

    She uses so much post tuning between the mic and the speaker, this may as well be the synthesized start up tone for a dell computer. Only its terrible. This is more or less the desperate last grasps to stay famous for lady Gagag Expand

    Lady Gaga is a deformed product of "our" culture, which is getting dumber and dumber with every day. The only way she can get attention is to show her arse or dress like a clown, and yet millions of people (the masses) like her. Sad... Expand
