Movie Reviews

Hey, it's only ten bucks, y'all...
JunkyardMessiah | Los Angeles, CA United States | 10/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"So, do I write a review for what this DVD SHOULD have been...or do I review it for what it IS? Yeah, I'm pissed at CBS and Mark Burnett for totally short-shrifting the fans of this show. People didn't watch Rock Star just for the music, we watched it for a behind-the-scenes look at how songs, music and *musicians* get made. This DVD offers NONE of that, and that's a travesty -- SHAME on you CBS!!!!! a DVD, taken for what it is, the offerings aren't bad for the money -- twenty-some GREAT songs, out-takes, and footage from the un-aired mini-concert with the brand new INXS, all for ten bucks? When CDs these days have 10 songs, eight of which suck, and cost $15? No, this is a pretty good deal.

Here's what's supposedly on the DVD: Bonus features include casting interviews, a backstage tour of the show and a VIP party at the "Rock Star" mansion. Clips include Jordis talking about dedicating "The Man Who Sold the World", the rockers arriving at the mansion for the first time, etc. Also included is a "Too Hot For TV" segment, which includes, among other things, Fortune's birthday celebration. (Woohoo!)

Track listing:
"Suicide Blonde" - INXS (from mini concert after the finale)
"Need You Tonight" - INXS (mini concert)
"Never Tear Us Apart" - INXS (mini concert)
"Don't Change" - INXS (mini concert)
"Pretty Vegas" - INXS (mini concert)
"California Dreamin'" - J.D. Fortune
"Heart-Shaped Box - Jordis Unga
"Losing My Religion" - Suzie McNeil
"Mr. Brightside" - Marty Casey
"Everybody Hurts" - Ty Taylor
"The Man Who Sold The World" - Jordis Unga
"Live and Let Die" - Mig Ayesa
"The Letter" - J.D. Fortune
"Baby One More Time" - Marty Casey
"Bring It On Home To Me" - Suzie McNeil
"No Woman, No Cry" - Ty Taylor
"Imagine" - Jordis Unga
"Creep" - Marty Casey
"Kiss From A Rose" - Mig Ayesa
"Money" J.D. Fortune
"Wish You Were Here" - Marty Casey
"Bohemian Rhapsody" - Suzie McNeil

And who knows, maybe we'll get the whole show in the future -- it must take a while to get the music rights to all those songs. So for now, this will tide me over...but I'm a-warnin' you CBS, this better not be all we get!"
Great "concert" video, disappointing series retrospective
Fruit Loop | Down South | 11/08/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although fans' hopes aren't completely crushed since this DVD is a great mini-concert-retrospective of some of the show's best moments, including performances by INXS as well as the rockers, and key moments such as their arrival and the partying, my expectation was for this to be a collection of all the episodes in the series.

It's a nice montage of memories but one hopes that sometime the whole series, in its entirety, will be released. After all, the past and future of INXS came together on this show as well as a possible launching pad for some great solo careers. Three stars for the music since you do pay more for an album than ten bucks, but I was disappointed."

"I was looking forward to the complete series also. To say this is a disappointment is an understatement! I would have gladly paid at least $50 to see the whole thing plus commentary and special features! I was looking forward the the reality segments the most. I hope the producers take note of the reviews here and consider putting out a comprehensive collection."
Save your money!

"Although I enjoyed watching "Rock Star INXS" over the summer (America and the band got it right by picking JD Fortune), this piecemeal compilation doesn't cut it with me at all.

The performances were generally fantastic, but some of the extras really stunk (except for the mini-concert). Shame on CBS and Mark Burnett!!!"
