Movie Reviews

The Kids Are Alright!
N. Knott | 10/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is an outstanding example of what reality T.V. could and should be. The series follows several poetry slam competition teams on their way to the Washington D.C. finals. Russell Simmons has presented a great cross section of the talented young people involved. Their coaching sessions and competitve performances will serve as inspiration to youth and adults alike. At times extremely moving; it is always thought provoking. The set includes extra complete performances of edited recitations. I have recommended this to teachers in my area and they are as excited about it as I am! I'd recommend this to their students too! Be aware that there is language and imagery that some may take exception to. I thought it was thrilling!"

I watched all 7 episodes and even ordered HBO on Demand just to hear these young people from all across the country spit about the various topics affecting their lives. This was an awesome series and I hope that all the youths who missed the series are able to get the DVD set. So often we see the youth of America portrayed negatively. These young poets are definitely role models for other kids. A must see for all, not just youths."

"Don't be put off by the language, study this and learn from the youth of this country. This is the way it is in the minds of the youth, probably brought on by us their perents. Hopefully these kids and others will remember their own youth to pass something better on to their own kids, like we didn't. Or does it just have to be this way with every generation."
Brave New Voices-Its a must have for slam poetry fans
Marcus D. Dawson | 06/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have to say that this DVD moved me. The young people on the movie are powerful poets who speak their truths through the art form of slam poetry. I am going to tell you this film will change your life. The teens ages 15-19 talk about issues that most of us adults are to afriad to speak on. Their passoinate delivers will have you on the edge of your seat. I dont want to spoil any of the movie but their is one poem that touched me the most and that is "Cruches". all I have to say is wow. I want you to get this film ASAP! This one is a life changer! Trust me you will want more after it is finished."
