Movie Reviews

Oigaf | Brooklyn, NY | 12/21/2005

"By all means avoid any of these Inside videos from Classic Rock Productions. They're a waste of time, waste of money, and complete slap in the face to the bands they feature and the consumers. The bands don't endorse these DVDs, especially that their so-called rare footage (shown in the range of 5 seconds to 1 minute) is used without the band's permission in the video quality possible. What you get is a bunch of know-nothing journalists giving shallow and misinformed commentary about the bands and their albums in question. If that's your interst then by all means buy it. Otherwise if you want excellent quality videos on your favorite bands, AVOID Classic Rock Productions at all costs!"
Low-IQ commentary.

"I rented this DVD. Utterly useless ramblings by "music industry" people - actually a bunch of random dimwits who aren't even smart enough to comment on what Rush's songs are about. One example: a commentator said he asked Neil Peart what the song "The Trees" was about, and that Peart said it was simply about trees and there was no other symbolic meaning. The guy apparently thought Peart was serious. Embarrassing."
Entertainment tonight E. T. on Rush

"Hush! Overbearing speaking for type shows with no movies stars(or muscicians) to speak up for themselves is abominibable! Why on earth is this legal, E. T. with Mary Hart and those hoarse face/voice hollywooders who know-it-all with out live interviews with the PEOPLE THEY TALK ABOUT and this with the snobby mucic critics and no one from Rush speaking up to validate this opininated crapola from a thorazine bottle. It was actually made in 1981 and so the standards were different back then as far as people "beleving this trype" as in E. T. or E TV. The rare footage can be seen in greater detail on Rush Chronicles "Limelight" video with clips from the past. Particular Geddy's Double-bladed bass gitar, and Alex's double-edged gitar in 2112, and Cygnus X-1."
More An Introduction To New Fans Than A Serious Analysis Of
Chris Luallen | Nashville, Tennessee | 06/25/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I liked this doc's format of discussing each album in chronological order. The problem is that only the two or three most popular songs from each record are actually talked about. Obviously dedicated Rush fans would want the lps analyzed in their entirety rather than just a few songs.

The bulk of the film is based on comments from interviews mixed alongside clips of the band playing live. The people interviewed include radio djs, musicians and others from the music business. But not anyone I had heard of before. A few had some interesting remarks. But nothing especially revelatory about the band or their music. For those new to Rush this might be a decent intro to the band and what albums to buy first. But hardcore fans will likely be disappointed."
