Movie Reviews

Simply a Must Have for any Red Wing Fan!!!
OrangeCrush | Farmington Hills, MI USA | 11/08/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You really have to love the DVD format. It has shown us the real meaning of special editions when talking about movies, has given us our favorite TV shows in complete seasons and now it has gone a step further and given us sports fans something very special. The best part about this set of DVD's are not the highlights and the behind the scenes interviews but the 5 full games that are included. These 5 games are without a doubt the 5 best games in recent Red Wing history. The fans who voted for these 5 games knew what they were talking about. I myself had these games taped onto VHS and have wathced them many times but the quality was pretty pathetic. Having these games on DVD is just about the greatest thing a Red Wing fan could ask for. I still get goosebumps when I watch these games and again this is a set that any Red Wing Fan must have.

In total you get 5 full games (the best 5 in recent history) + tons of extras including interviews & behind the scenes footage. I would have easily paid $100.00 for this set (20.00 per game) and the price is only around $40.00 which really is an amazing price for what you get. If your a Red Wing fan and your into DVD's then this one is a no brainer. Lets hope this trend continues as I would like to get a set like this for the Detroit Pistons as well. Anyways, enjoy this set - I know I will."
100 Hours of Hockeytown Excitement!

"This DVD contains 16 hours of highlights (to include 5 full-length games) from one of the premier franchises in the history of sports: The Detroit Red Wings.

The first disc begins with the story of the return of Lord's Stanley's Cup to its rightful place after over a 4 decade absence. The narrator tells the story of how the team had to literally have an "extreme makeover;" starting with the acquisition of forward Brendon Shannahan, in order to even think about toppling their mortal rivals the Colorado Avalanche.

Disc one sets the tone for the rest of the collection as you see the Red Wings quickly evolve into a physical, take-no-prisoners team with the legendary Steve Yzerman as their captain. The build-up toward their quest for their first Cup in 42 years will keep you on the edge of your seat. Action footage is punctuated with interviews w/players and Hall-of-Fame Coach Scotty Bowman in a way that makes you want to watch all 16 hours in one sitting. My 13 year-old son and I started watching at 10:00 one evening. It was very difficult to limit ourselves to just this one disc, and to finish the set in the coming days. The highlight selection and the editing at first rate.

This 4-disc set is destined to be a collectors item. It is my sincere hope that the powers-that-be at the NHL produce a set for all of the "Original 6.""

"I've been a Detroit fan since early childhood,watching Stevie Y since he first came into the NHL. This is the best 4 disc DVD I've ever watched,re-living all of the best moments in Red Wings history.Its has some classic Red Wing games from the regular season to classic playoff games.For die hard Red Wings fans you'll never forget game 7 of the 1996 playoff when Stevie Y scored the double OT winner verses St.Louis.Last but not least the retirement of Stevie Y. Thanks for the memories, Red Wings fans wherever you are will miss you!!!!!!!!!!"
The Ultimate Red Wings DVD Set

"This has everything a red wing fan would ever want in a dvd set. It covers thier 3 Stanley Cup wins in '97,'98 and '02, plus it has the top 5 games in their recent history voted by fans of the red wings. If I voted, I would probably pick these 5 games as well, they are the best with dramatic endings. Go Red Wings !!!!!!!!!"
