Movie Reviews

Skip this DVD---very few famous moments in sports shown
Cougar's Dad | Menlo Park | 08/08/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The title should have been: "Evel Knievel and Auto Racing". I was hoping for the great moments in TV sports history, with many different sports shown. Instead, all I saw was about 5 or more minutes of Evel Knievel and 5 or more minutes of auto racing, but zero minutes of swimming, skiing, boxing, baseball, basketball, hockey, football etc. etc. It feels like they put very little time into making a exciting sports product that showed the best of sports over the last 40 years. I was very disappointed."
Good idea, but too short
Patrick Peterson | Versailles, KY | 06/15/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I love the idea of a DVD (or several) showing old footage of sports events. Wide World of Sports was one of those defining television sports shows of the 1960s and 70s. Why not a 4-hour retrospective, with the opportunity to really show some in-depth highlights? This DVD was fascinating, but with only 1 hour of material it barely had a chance to give us a flavor of the original show."
Horrible - Do NOT Buy
R. Tetirick | 02/19/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really poorly done DVD, apparently the good clips cost too much so the producers assembled a hodge podge of irrelevant CBS moments and haphazardly edited them into this piece. Example, the classic opening theme and montage, you know.. "The Thrill of Victory, and the Agony of Defeat" is entirely missing! How can you do a CBS Sports DVD and NOT include that???

Also, it looks like a cheaply done transfer, almost like a remaster of a VHS to DVD."
