Movie Reviews

Must see
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Big fan of the magazine, waited for this DVD to come out for a second and it was just what I hoped it would be. In-depth looks at the world of pitbull fighting, the life and times fo Pee-Wee Kirkland and the history of the Bloods and Crips in L.A., along with a three-part series on the history of F.E.D.S magazine, and how it's revolutionized street reporting. The great thing, none of the people involved with this project try to glamorize street life, they just tell the truth and how drugs and violence has destroyed generations of people in America's inner-cities. The segment on pit-bull fighting will make you cringe, and wonder how people could treat dogs like that. A definite must see."
This DVD is the Truth

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've read the magazine a couple of times and really liked it but I'm really feeling this DVD. I like the mission. They seek to show you the truth of the streets (as far as crime is concerned) but it seems more fact based and not really glorifying it. If anything, the DVD shows kids what can really go wrong with the lifestyle that most videos seems to promote. In fact it's really interesting hearing real gangsters scream on these rap cats - they really hate how fake they are. I rented the DVD, but I definitely plan on buying it."
A Sneak Peek Into Lives

(4 out of 5 stars)

"F.E.D.S. gives a peek into interesting lives. I appreciate Pee Wee Kirkland's interview about Harlem streetball and the ups and downs of his life. I found the expanse on LA Bloods and Crips extremely interesting. While watching the DVD one actually feels like they get a sense of what is going on out there in "the streets.""

"The movies wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be more raw, instead, it was full of talk and interviews. If you are looking for something like that, this is what you are looking for. If you are looking for raw footage, this is not for you."
