Movie Reviews

Much more than a SUPER FREAK!!
Jabbo edwards | SAG HARBOR NEW YORK United States | 04/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unfortunately many people remember Rick James for all the WRONG reasons...his crazy life, drug use and early death from the same...HERE we have the part of Rick James that even Rolling Stone Magazine does not seem to acknowledge, given their juvenile review of this dvd....his musical and performance GENIUS!! Most of the clips on this set i have NEVER seen and the production/direction from Joe Lauro at Historic Films and Universal/Motown is the highest quality....this entire Motown artist series that seems to be coming out of Universal is awesome and this one is among the best!!!!"
Great DVD

Great perfomances I never saw!

"This is good to see his performances. You more or less get the full idea of what Rick James was about. The only flaws are the quality of the TV show performances. While not bad, they are not pristine either. I comapre it to The Temptations "Get Ready" DVD where you had video from the mide 60's to the mid 70's and they all looked like they were filmed yesterday! The Rick james DVD was from the late 70's to the 80's and it was not the finest quality, but not bad either. The ONLY BAD video was the "Ebony Eyes" video. One of the reason I bought this is because everytime I find a verison on the net, it is and old "Video Soul" VHS low quality copy. Sadly, that is what we get here! The other official vidoes are DVD quality. Still worht a buy."

"This dvd is not the best. Although it allows you to see Rick from a very young musician until he hit the big time, I expected a little more insight on Rick -- maybe a little more upclose and personal. If you need a reason to buy this dvd, then buy it for the mere fact that the Temptations ("Standing On The Top") perform with Rick -- which is the best segment of the dvd. The dvd is worth the purchase simply because of this performance; otherwise, pass it by."
