Movie Reviews

A British sensation in need of a stronger American following

"Robbie Williams is one of the most creative, tongue-in-cheek lyricists in the world. His songs cover a wide range of emotions, from sadness to love, from arrogance to insecurity, from pain to unabashed fun. But since this is a DVD, I will focus more on Mr. Williams' visual appeal.
There are seven videos featured on this disc (two are available if you conquer the Find the Joker game). Here's each one in a nutshell:
"Angels" - a stunning, black-and-white video with gorgeous cinematography and simplicity. Probably the best I've ever seen him do. It's no wonder that the song and the video were (and still are) wildly popular in the UK.
"Lazy Days" - As Robbie explains, he was "mad" during this video as it was filmed during one of his stints in rehab. There are some interesting camera effects in this one and some cool tricks involving small floating mirrors.
"South of the Border" - Robbie and his band perform in a building that is on fire. As the heat goes up, the band members and their instruments begin to sweat. You literally feel the heat while watching it. Good concept.
"Heaven From Here" and "Grace" - Both videos are comprised of vacation footage shot by Williams' writing partner Guy Chambers. "HFH," a slower song, features softer moments, while "Grace" gets fun with a karaoke feel.
"Get the Joke" - A live studio video, kind of an Unplugged moment for Robbie. Very simple, not visual at all, but the song is still enjoyable.
The extras on the disk are pretty good. His poetry renditions offer a nice break from his crazy pop idol persona and allows us to get into his head a bit. There are also a couple of short interviews, including one where he discusses how he knew "Angels" was going to be a hit.
My only beef: I wish there were more videos available! There are many I have not seen yet.
This is a great gift for any Robbie fan and also a wonderful way to introduce a non-believer to a great artist. I would like to see Robbie Williams try again with the American audience. Fans like me certainly haven't given up on him yet."
Finally a Robbie williams DVD

"I was quite pleased to find out Robbie Williams was releasing a collection of videos. This is quite an entertaining DVD. It includes the original version of ANGELS, and videos for Lazy Days, and South of the Border, plus 2 extra tracks. It also includes Robbie reciting his own poetry and exclusive interviews. The FIND THE JOKER game was quite fun , and if you do find him, you are rewarded with 2 videos for "Man Machine" and "Grace." My only issue was that all of his videos were not included. The DVD format has ample room for such a collection, if one is ever released. You will not be disappointed."
Great DVD

"This is a very simple DVD. You don't get a whole lot, but you get a little of all, and what you get is really cool. You get the videos section (5 videos, including one for "Get the Joke", which consists of him and one of his band mates with a guitar. This video is like you and I singing in my apartment, you know what I mean?). You get the poems section. (he recites three of his poems). The interviews section (three short pieces of interviews about the song "Angels"). And the game section (if you find the joker you will get to see two more videos).Over all, it is about Robbie as simple and natural as he can get. It's lots of fun! It is worth the price."
FABULOUS

"I love Robbie Williams and think he has been under estimated in the states. Angels is such a beautiful song, this is really a nice CD."
