Movie Reviews

Never judge a book (or DVD) by it's cover...
Mr. S. Weaver | Birmingham, UK | 08/20/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is truly AWFUL. Like most of Levine's output it is cheap and nasty. As you might have read earlier - a lot of the artists appearing here haven't been paid anything for their contribution/inclusion in this DVD. You might as well go to YouTube to watch this stuff - they're all there and many, many, more gems(?) from the Nightmare/Motorcity labels. Whilst I do applaud Ian for putting The Supremes back together when no-one else was interested, the video here of "I Wanna Be Loved" is of such bad quality that I wish it hadn't been included and the ladies themselves (Lynda & Scherrie) were not happy when they saw it. So in conclusion, save your money - watch it all free on your computer!"
Not the real original

"Its nice to have the dvd, but the quality is not that great. besides that are the songs remixed. And the playlist isnt that filled with real hits. If you're looking for that, disappointment. If you want the rather unknown songs, than its a great buy"
A last-chance to see our favorites

"OK, so the camera work, settings, and in some cases the artists themselves are not at the peak of their craft. But if you're a true fan of Mary Wells, the Velvelettes, the Marvelettes and others, where else are you going to see these videos of theirs. I have fun picking and choosing a few at a time. Kudos to the producers for pulling all of this Ian Levine produced material together. It's fun.
