Movie Reviews

So here it is, another DEF JAM
supastar | brooklyn | 06/23/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Never mind that corny Leonard Maitlin quip. this is the story of the biggest rap label ever, told fictionally. Krush Groove is really DefJam Records, the label that would go on to host the biggest acts ever, including RunDMC, The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, the FatBoys, Kurtis Blow (ALL FEATURED PROMINENTLY AND ACTUALLY DISPLAYING GOOD ACTING SKILLS), and later MethodMan, Redman, DMX and Public Enemy. This film has great performances, an angry Run coming on stage, positively commenting on the other performers quietly and declaring, "but this is my m.. house!" is great. Kurtis Blow does If I ruled the World, the FatBoys do their thing, etc. But in terms of seriousness and social blah blah, watching this movie, seeing the way Russel came up, and looking now at what he's become, is just amazing. They got Blair Underwood to play Russel Simmons, and he does a great job. This movie should, though it probably wont, go down as one of the best accounts of the achievement of the American Dream, through dangerous dealings and dreaming, all types of adversity and successes, in a music that was emerging. The movie was made in 85, and it takes place pretty much exactly as it was being made, with complete faith in its premise, its music, and its eventual success. That's quite amazing because you can now look at it as a historical testament, no exxageration, to one of the biggest cultural movements this nation has ever had. Hip hop heads, we'll go down like the gnostics, amazing innovators and proponents of culture, suppressed by the ignorant and the power-hungry. You'll show this movie to your kids one day."
Krush Groove is an interactive experience of Joy!

"This movie is so cute, so happy, so silly, so fun. It has become a member of my family. The music is good, the characters are hilarious, and you can pick out bits of truth and history if you look. You can also play "Where's LL?". He is scattered a few places in the movie. And you get to see the real Russell Simmons talking to the character based on Russell Simmons, played by Blair Underwood. MTV had a hip hop day a couple of years ago, and they featured Krush Groove, hosted by Fab 5 Freddy. (You can also see F5F in the beautiful, classic, solid Wild Style.) The only advisory is to erase or fast-forward through the scene in which the Fat Boys (the Disko 3) are in their science class, right before they get into "Don't you dog me.... Aaarh aaarh, aaarh aaarh....". The classroom part contains an unnecessary dissection scene. Watch it and you'll see what I mean. Enjoy this movie, and by all means --- keep the spirit of Krush Groove alive! Word. :)"

"I LIKE THIS HANDS DOWN. THIS MOVIE CONTAINS SOME ACTING DONE BY SOME OF THE MASTERS; BY SOME OF THE FOREFATHERS OF HIP HOP WHO STARTED IT ALL I LOVE THIS MOVIE IT HAS A SLAMMING SDTK. I LOVE THE SONG"KRUSH GROOVIN" BY THE KRUSH GROOVE ALL-STARS. IT CONTAINS KURTIS BLOW ACTING AND PERFORMING THAT IS A PLUS. SHEILA E., RUN DMC, THE FAT BOYS, NEW EDITION, AND THE YOUNG BLAIR UNDERWOOD. I LOVE IT AND STILL ENJOY THIS VIDEO."

"Watching this movie is definitely a trip down memory lane. Any true fan of Hip Hop will enjoy watching old school artists such as Run-DMC perform. The plot is formulated, but makes for a light-hearted entertaining movie.Qualtity of the DVD is tight as well."
