Movie Reviews

Must-Have DVD for Yankee Fans
Mitch Goodfellow | Reno, NV United States | 04/12/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a tasteful videography of the New York Yankees history from 1903 - 2003. Is it complete? Not even close. But at five hours running time, it contains enough game footage and interviews to keep fans seriously entertained. My favorite part of the two-disc set is the collection of original televised footage and play-by-play. They really brought back some great memories. These include Chris Chambliss' 1976 pennant-winning homer, the pine-tar incident, Bobby Murcer's emotional game-winner on the day of Thurman Munson's funeral, Jim Leyritz' 3-run homer in the 1996 series, and pitching heroics by Larson, Righetti, Wells, and Cone. One gripe - some of the footage repeats itself on a bonus disc mini-documentary. I would have preferred less Bob Costas and David Halberstam and more magical moments, like the complete play-by-play of Bucky Dent's famous home run against the Bosox in 1978, or Reggie's 3-homer game in the 1977 World Series, or Ron Guidry's 18-strikeout performance. These were all covered in the documentary, but it would have been nice to have more of the original play-by-play."
Best Baseball documentary I've ever seen !

"The best baseball documentary on the market today, great footage, some never seen before, great interviews, the quality is excellant. This is the best way to relive Yankee triumphs and certain tradgedies.
I would recommend this dvd to all baseball history buffs."
ESSENTIAL for any Yankee fan (or bball fan, for that matter)

"a GREAT docoumentary. Tons of awesome footage, and interviews and reminiscences by the actual participants (Yankee and foe), allowing you to relive the greatest moments in Yankee (and by extension, baseball) history. I'm a huge Yankee fan, and while i thought i'd probably enjoy this anyway, i was amazed how into it I was. The next thing I knew, I had almost watched the whole thing straight thru, which would've been a feat: it has a generous running time - over 5 hours. This would make an ideal present for any Yankee fan who hasn't already seen this material on YES network. The only people who wouldn't enjoy this are Red Sox fans, as so many of the great moments in Yankee history came at Boston's expense."
