Movie Reviews

Pointless, cheap and a waste of time
GBS | Chicago, IL USA | 11/19/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Of all the artists with documentaries and video compilations, Eric Clapton continues to get the short end of the stick. This chintzy collection of common videos is both a waste of your time as well as money.With piles of fine `80's-`90's live video to use, Warner Video decided to just go cheap and slot in some best-of-Warners clips; they couldn't have spent more than the playing time compiling this. There is nothing here that's worth spending a nickel on, especially for fans who already have "24 Nights" or "Unplugged".Polygram did a far nicer job - and their's was nothing terrific, mind you - with their "Cream Of Clapton" that at least showed some aspect of the history of this performer. This is hardly the "best of" 1981-1999, it's no more than VH1 might do with a handful of videos and a half-hour to kill.A wasted opportunity - don't make things worse by wasting your hard-earned money."
Disappointing as a DVD
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm fairly new to DVD's, so when I bought this one I thought all DVD's took advantage of the superior sound available through the use of dolby digital 5.1, like James Taylor's, Live at the Beacon. This one doesn't it's in stereo. While I love Clapton, I don't HAVE to see him to enjoy him, so if I had it to do all over I'd have bought the CD. At least with the CD, I could have enjoyed his great music in the car as well as at home. So be sure and check what audio format is being utilized BEFORE making your purchase."

"Starting off with "Forever Man," probably the worst video on the tape, then, to "Pretending", a great, wet video with plenty of good guitar, fallowed by "Bad Love" which gives "Forever Man" a run for it's money in "bad videos." Up next is one of Clapton's most romantic songs, "Wonderful Tonight." This is a great, slow version of the song. Then it's "Tears in Heaven," another song flaunting Clapton's incredible lyrical power. The video itself is a good one... similer to the "Unplugged" video. Next is "Layla" and "Running on Faith." Both great, and off of the "Unplugged" video. "Mottherless Child" has to be one of the best video's on the tape; in a goldish black-and-white. The song of course is awesome too! Then is Clapton's "Change the World." His Grammy-winning song, with a good, solid video to back it up. Then is "My Father's Eyes." The video isn't the greatest, but the lyrics and the voice make up for it all. Up next is "Pilgrim," that has a good video. The only problem with it, is that it's pretty long. And last, but sure not least, is "Blue Eyes Blue." off of the "Runaway Bride" soundtrack... although you could never tell. All of the movie scenes were cut out of it. Nevertheless, a good video, and a good song. If you like Clapton, like music vidoes, and like a good time: Buy this!"
Great collection of marvelous videos by EC!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video collection is as cool as the matching CD is lame! From the solitude of EC playing acoustic guitar on a soundstage on "Tears In Heavan" to the very hip black and white "Motherless Child" to the rain soaked "Pretending" these are all very tasty clips. The only drawbacks are two cuts from "unplugged" and one from "24nights" which are already commercially available..but understandable inclusions."
