Movie Reviews

Waste of time, money, & plastic
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Holy cow, this DVD is awful! First off, there is absolutely NO music by the Strokes on this DVD. The band was not involved in any way regarding the production of this "documentary". Instead, you get stock photos of the band and music played by half-rate house musicians. Furthermore, there are no interviews with the Strokes. The Strokes producer is interviewed, which is fairly enlightening. The rest of the interviewees seemed to be a bunch of spares with little or nothing to say. I suppose the producers of this drivel were trying to add a touch of class by using a narrator with a British accent. Instead, it comes off trite and contrived. I am a huge Strokes fan, and I would definately like to see a REAL documentary about them - one including actual interviews with the Strokes, and some of their music. Instead, this DVD just seems like a rush job to cash in on the band's recent success. No wonder this DVD is unauthorized - who would authorize something this bad? Save your money and wait for something better!"

"this dvd is the most miserable, pathetic, awful, horrendous, diguisting, wretched, atrocious, cheap, god-awful, fallacious, dreadful, generally BAD dvd you will ever see in your life... for a little bit i actually forgot it was about the strokes, then i think i MIGHT have seen a picture of them... doubt it though.... and that reminded me. The point is, this has no music by the strokes, no interviews with them, nothing.... only a picture or two. Well, just don't buy it, save your money and by their cd... it's 18,000 times better.i'm a big strokes fan and this was such a let down, don't let yourself get bummed out by this mistake as well"
Music from The Strokes? No. Interviews? No. Good DVD? No.

"It's just one of those things you end up watching at 3 in the morning. But skip this one. You should be sleeping.
I am a die-hard Strokes fan so when New York Stories came out, I had to have it. Much to my disappointment, it turned out to contain no music by The Strokes, or interviews with any members of the band.
If you still feel like you need to see this DVD, don't pay more than $5 for it. You have been officially warned."
I wish it was good
