Movie Reviews

It's a Start, but it Could've Been So Much More
Michael Crane | Orland Park, IL USA | 05/15/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to successfully put together a "Best of Carlin" on CD or DVD. Why? Because it'd take up too much time. Carlin has done NUMEROUS bits that are now deemed classic, and personally I think almost everything the man does, is great. And yet, here is this DVD, "George's Best Stuff." Well, it is a start, but only covers SOME of the great things this very funny and unique man has said and done.It's not a complete disappointment though. The bits and segments included are indeed funny. And, I love how a lot of the stuff included are from older shows and acts. I really do think Carlin shines the best in his older material, but the Carlin today is still very funny and on top of his game. It was nice to see some of these older bits from older shows, and I hope they come out on DVD sometime soon.The DVD includes famous bits such as "Seven Dirty Words," "Stuff," "Al Sleet," "Dog Incident," "Fussy Eater," "Losing Things," "Driving," and much more. The DVD has a total of 17 chapters and adds up to the DVD being 87 minutes.AH HA! There lies the problem. 87 minutes. ONLY 87 minutes?? 87 minutes for something with the title of "George's Best Stuff?" These 87 minutes should represent the entire comedy life of George Carlin? I hope not! Like I said, it's a nice start, but I think something of this magnitude should really be longer. There's so much that is left out on this DVD. So many classic bits that fail to appear on this package with the name "George's Best Stuff." The stuff that is included does indeed qualify as some of George's best bits, but I think there was a missed opportunity here. I really think more could've been done.Is "George's Best Stuff" a complete disappointment? Of course not. Is it enjoyable to watch? Most definitely. Should Carlin fans check it out? By all means, yes. However, I really do believe more could've been done and that more could've been included. While "George's Best Stuff" isn't a total disappointment, it does leave you feeling that more could've and should've been done to honor the very title on the DVD cover, "George's Best Stuff." It's a start, but I'm afraid it is only that."
Finally! Now THIS is more like it!

"Well now, it appears we've hit the mother lode with this gem of a comdy video! the reason for me stating so is that it, fortunatly and mercifully contains only classic pre '90's standup material for the absolute pleasure and enjoyment of Mr. Carlin's formerly devoted audience. I especially appreciate the presence of the '77 and '78 routines (blue and black shirts, respectively) that really stand out in the selection of "stuff" from times past that this video showcases. The material from '82,'84, and '86 is not legendary but still not too bad. However, the '88 and '90 parts are strictly mediocre and forgettable, I truly feel. Anyway, I am extremely glad that this, as well as the recent release of the "Little David Years" box set exists on the comedy album market today, in order to inspire up-and-comers and to remind us that the "Former Great" really did use to deliver memorable monologues that did more than make us laugh, they made us think as well. The most important thing for comedy fans to remember is: Classic Carlin is Cool!"
Very Good, but not Political
Michael Crane | 01/16/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mainly highlights from his best known earlier works- such as "Stuff" and "Seven Words." (1978 version) The "Seven Words" skit is used as a recurring skit interweaving his other works together. You will find general works here, and not those political skits particular to an era, such as his Desert Storm commentary or Reagan commentaries."
Our Greatest Comedian

"This video shows a score of live performance bits, including the seven words in 3 or 4 of the performance bits. It shows him at various ages from young to balding and greying where you can see him performing live. It tops his CD's because you see him live and see and hear the auduence's break-up reactions. Carlin is unique and unsurpassed. I could not recommend this video more highly."
