Movie Reviews

Was this made by people who HATE the Kinks??

"This DVD sucks because:

1.Inane reviewiers talk over videos (including a great "dead end street" video I'd have loved to have seen)

2. They only talk about a few singles, and totally SKIP over "Arthur", my personal favorite album and the FIRST rock concept album ever recorded (Though "Tommy" was actually released to the public first because of Pye problems, lawsuits, or something -it's in "X-Ray" -but this DVD doesn't even mention it)

3. The reviewers talk about many songs and their meanings as if they have never read the Davies books or read interviews by Ray explainging the songs

It seems as if they were only allowed to talk about songs the company happened to have footage of...excpet for "Big Sky" and "Village Green Preservation.." which they used cheesy video's of farm and sky for.

If you're a Kinks fan, you must own this, but it will make you as mad as it did me. The worst part is that since this has been released it may discourage a PROPER dvd release of Kinks stuff.

BAH!

"The former reviewer is obviously working for the company that released this utter piece of crap. I would not touch this set with a ten foot pole. Kinks fans stood stay away from this as far as possible!
I tried to give it nil stars but that is not possible, unfortunately......."

"A DOUBLE DVD AND NOT ONE COMPLETE SONG. NOT SOME BUT EVERY SONG IS INTERRUPTED WITH COMMENTARY. WHY COULDN'T THEY PLAY A SONG AND THEN COMMENT ON IT? ALSO, EVERY PARTIAL VIDEO THAT IS PLAYED HAS WRITTEN AT THE TOP OF THE VIDEO WHO IT WAS PRODUCED BY AND IT JUST STAYS UP THERE THE WHOLE TIME MAKING IT DIFFICULT ON SOME PORTIONS TO SEE WHAT'S HAPPENING. I'M A BIG TIME KINKS FAN BUT THIS DVD IS ABSOLUTE JUNK. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I AGREE WITH ANOTHER REVIEWER THAT THIS DVD SHOULD ACTUALLY BE RATED AS ZERO STARS.

$32 DOWN THE DRAIN

"Reviewer above can not be a Kinks fan. This DVD skips over great recordings such as "Face to Face", "Something Else", and "Arthur. It also doesn't even mention singles like "Sunny Afternoon". The music critics in this DVD are also misinterpreting the meanings of some of the songs. This DVD is not authorized by the Kinks and it shows."
