Movie Reviews

It could of been more...

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Living in Houston and driving to parties in NO almost every weekend I expected a lot more from this DVD. I know its hard to capture everyones experience or view but overall too many blurry shots, not enough clear, focus shots, and the editing didn't help either. The bonus scenes of the 'Rave Act' made the DVD for me. I would probably agree with the other reviewer when he says you might find it boring if you weren't there or know anyone in it; i can see that point. But it is a keeper for me because it did bring back some great memories of Zoolu, 50ft Raver Zombies, Yars Revenge, Summer Fever....and many, many more. I recommend this DVD to the people who had the privilege to experience the parties during that time."
It's the real deal

"I think this film would appeal to anyone who loves and understands music and the scenes that surround it. Make sure you turn it up, the soundtrack rocks and really makes you feel the energy of the party. The bonus sections are a helpful addition that expain what has happened to the rave scene in the US. I loved it and so did my grandma! This is by far the most honest and interesting rave film out there."
For the naysayers

"Rise is your typical documentary that explains what the rave scene was like in New Orleans. One thing it definetly helps you understand is why, the ravers, promoters and the DJs decided to do this for their lifestyle. The one part viewers must see, is in the bonus section, where another documentary about the R.A.V.E. act and the aftermath of Donnie's war against the government is told. If you've come across this DVD cause you're into electronic music, watch this so you can see what lies behind your ability to party on a saturday night, LEGALLY!"
