Movie Reviews

Not Exactly A Fan of The Bad Boys but...
MJS | Vancouver | 12/03/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had to buy this set strictly because it includes all six games of the 1989 Eastern Conference Finals between the Pistons and Chicago Bulls. This was the "Doug Collins-coached/pre-Triangle offense" Bulls, before their championship dynasty. You could see exactly how this Bulls/Pistons rivalry was starting to grow. Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant were still too young and inexperienced, so the Bulls offense heavily relied on Michael Jordan. Nevertheless, the games were intense. The upstart Bulls gave the Bad Boys their biggest challenge in the '89 playoffs. This set also includes the Pistons four-game sweep of the Lakers in the NBA Finals that spring. Detroit had one of the best backcourts at the time with Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. Up front they had resident Bad Boys Bill Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn, plus the steady veteran Mark Aguirre. And finally, the deepest bench in the league with Vinnie Johnson, John Salley, Dennis Rodman and James Edwards. Whether you're a Bad Boy for life or MJ fan, you'll want this set just to relive the classic confrontations."
Good Buy

"I am big Celtics fan, but I felt compelled to buy this set to keep my library of great basketball going. I have all of the NBA Dynasty Series, and this set is just as good. Great action by Jordan, Magic and all of the Pistons."
At least one game is NOT in its entirety
Amazon User | 12/10/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"OK, I just received the set. Whenever I buy DVDs, I make sure to put them into my DVD player to make sure they will play. Occasionally I've gotten some DVDs that won't play.

All of the discs in this set play fine in my player, however, I did notice another problem. The box says that all 10 games are shown in their entirety. Well, when I put in Disc 4 (containing Game 4 of the ECF), I went to the start of the 4th quarter, and it started with 9:32 remaining in the 4th! I thought maybe that they had put the chapter break in the wrong place, so I rewinded it a little bit. I saw the last few seconds of the 3rd quarter, and all of a sudden it went to 9:32 of the 4th quarter. So the first 2 minutes and 28 seconds of the 4th quarter are definitely missing.

I don't have time right now to watch all of the discs in their entirety to find out if that's the only instance of missing footage, or if there are more instances of missing footage. But it's a little disappointing when they say that all the games are in their entirety, only to find out that that's not the case."
Bad Boyz revisited

"Fairly well video package.Excellent video quality!!! Could have included the actual telecast intros as there is no real pre-game setup for the viewers, no buildup to anticipation of a possible must-win, great scoring(MJ, Isiah,etc)performance!Still, a good package, like going back-in-time and reliving that action, the REAL Bad Boyz!!!!!"
