Movie Reviews

Decieving
Roger | Castles | 10/17/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this DVD and I just watched it once and I would of returned it if I could and get something else. Why? well, because I hate to be decieved by this kind of oportunities companies putting together a few things and releasing a product so superficial and that doesn't represent George at all.
So let's analize this DVD in three points:* The interviews: well, it's just interesting George Martin and Paul McCartney, both of them appears for 5 minutes in the whole thing, and some old interviews by The Beatles. The rest is related by a childhood friend of George who probably spent 10 minutes playing soccer with him and that's it. I mean, he's not the most autorizhated person to talk about Harrison for almost an hour, right? So he bores you actually.* The music: YOU WON'T LISTEN TO ONE SONG BY GEORGE HARRISON or THE BEATLES. Believe it or not. The only soundtracks here is by some British forgottable "mersey-beat-like" sixties band, which is insulting !!!!! since they show you glimpses of The Beatles performing live with that stupid song playing. This is the part that I hate the most about this DVD. The Story of a Musician including NOTHING of his music.* The story: well, it doesn't tell you anything. You don't get a clue of his musical life. Just interviews here and there. Suddenly in the middle of something, an interview with the Beatles where they talk about getting the MBE and next thing his childhood friend talking about a particular memory when they were kids.
HIS post-beatle musical career DOESN'T EXIST here!!! You don't know about the Concert For Bangla-Desh, for example. UNREAL.
Suddenly from being a Beatle it skips to the NEWS about him being attacked in December, 1999.I'm a Fan, and I know very well his story and music. But my reason to be SO UPSET at this "Let's Make Money With The Artist's Death" DVD, it's because for someone who doesn't know him well and wants to take a peek at this genius' life, will end up bored and confused."
Not what it says

"I only have listened to the audio cd, tho I have read an review of the DvD itself, ofcourse just after I already bought it.I still think some warning should be placed. Regarding the Audio cd, on the back it is stated that you get about 60 minutes of interviews with George, what you get is about 30 minutes of wortheless Beatle covers, not even George's songs! And one made up piece called "In Spite Of All The Danger" which doesn't sound at all like the Beatles song with the same name! What I read of the DvD itself is that it has little to do with George also, and based on the audio cd I believe that.The release date isn't right also, it is already in the shops, which I sadly found out today.Save yourself the money go listen to George's albums instead."
Bad, bad, bad

"Interviews offer very little of interest for fans and shoddily put together, seemingly from scraps of old footage."
Avoid this one

"Do not be fooled by this DVD's slick packaging as I was. This DVD is a truly awful mess, so much so that it cannot be called a documentary. It's just a disordered mish mash (there is no story line!) of some very, very poor, rambling interviews of people who clearly barely knew George and bizarrely whole clips from BBC and ITN news broadcasts about the knife attack on George and about George's death. The truly incredible thing about this package is that there is next to no music on the DVD. Come on. How can you make a so-called documentary about a great musician like George Harrison and not have any of his music on it? It looks like this thing was slapped together by a small group of amateurs who simply wanted to exploit George's death. Everyone involved in this project should be ashamed of themselves."
