Rolling Stones Crossfire Hurricane Review


In this blog, we are going to get into another review in my Documentary Series. This time around we are going to expore Rolling Stones Crossfore Hurricane. I will do a review. I will close it up with what I will be doing next in my series. Let’s go and stop wasting time.

Review

I do like how they did this documentary up. They used old interviews and videos back at that time to tell this story. It was nice to see the founder and leader Brian Jones before being kicked out of the band by Mick and Keith. They also tell the story of downward spinal of Jones after being kicked from the band. They were at a cross roads at that time in the band’s history. I did like how they explain the situation with the Hell’s Angels and Stones fan base during a show. They later went on to explain Ron Wood coming into the band.

In the end, I am sorry it took so long to get this post up. Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience. Rolling Stones were clearly the bad boys to the Beatles. They were a very talented then and now. They are still making music to this day. This documentary gives long time fans or new ones a time machine to the past. This band has a rich history in music and this documentary told one chapter in this band’s history. It is very well done and I recommend watching fan or no fan of this band. I hope you enjoyed this review and thank you for coming by to read this post. I am not sure what my next post will be. There is Tiger Woods and Nightstalker documentary that were just released. Until then, play hard and party on! \m/

Cheers!

Bee Gees How To Mend A Broken Heart? Review


In this blog, we are going to get into another documentary in this on going series. We are going to get into Bee Gees How To Mend A Broken Heart? Let’s get started.

Review

I was not a bee Gees fan. I am sucker for documentary. I heard good things about this doc. I had to watch it. I have to say that I found a new respect for this band. This project has opened my eyes to the talent that they were. They were not just the disco band of the 1970s and created that whole sound. I did like how they broke down the history of the band and covering their other brother Andy Gibb. To the break up and the reunion that discover a new sound. This shows how this band moved with the times. Barry is keeping that fire alive today.

In closing, this is a very well written documentary. The people behind this doc did a very good job. I believe the Gibb family should be happy with this project. Bee Gees were a very talent group and they should get more credit than being disco band. I highly recommend that you check out this documentary. I believe that you will be like me and you find a new respect for this band. Until next time, play hard and party on! \m/

Cheers!

Last Dance Documentary Review


In this blog, we are getting into the second review of a documentary. It is Lasy Dance. This series is about the raise and end of Chicago Bulls in the 1990s. It is ten part series with each part being an hour long. I am not going to do the history of this team because this series does a really good job breaking down this era. I will jump right into the review. Let’s get into it.

Review

I felt this series was way too long. I also felt that it could have been four hours long to cover everything. However, they did a good job of breaking down in parts. I do love how they told the story of the raise of this team and players like Jordan to coach Phil Jackson. There was a point in series that I thought I was watching Steve Kerr documentary. That’s what I mean, it was not just a Phil Jackson or Michael Jordan documentary. I also loved how they went depth on the match ups in playoffs or regular season and Dennis’ vacation in Vegas. They did awesome job on this documentary. I just wished that they would have went in more depth of why Jordan went to baseball. Overall, I recommend watching this doc.

In the end, I will be honest. I was not a Bulls fan ever. I am a Pistons fan because I grew up in the Detroit area at that time. I really enjoyed third and fourth parts. I do resepect what Jordan and those great teams went through. What Pistons did to him, it birth super star calls aka Michael Jordan call. I do not care what team you back. If you are or are not a sports fan, you need to find ten hours of your time to watch this series. I will leave you on this note. It was seconds in the first part you heard Michael Jorden talking about himself in third person. I am not sure what I will be doing next. I am thinking true crime or history. I will put a poll on Twitter soon. Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoyed this review. Of course, thank you for all the support. Until then, play hard and party on! \m/

Cheers!

Amy Winehouse Amy Documentary Review


In this blog, we are going get into my first review of a documentary series or movie. We are going to take. Look at Amy Winehouse Amy. I am going to get into About Amy and my thought of the movie. Let’s get into it.

About Amy

Amy Winehouse was borned in United Kingdom on September 14th, 1983 and died on July 23rd 2011. Yes, she is part of 27 Club. She was inspired by old Jazz music and soul girl groups in Motown era. She became a pretty well know Jazz Singer. She sold over 2.7 million copies of her records world wide. She had two records while she was alive. There was a third record that was released after her death.

Review

This documentary is over two hours long and was released in 2015. I like how they did live footage of her raise to frame and then her death. I also like they did the interview over the footage then cutting to see someone in a room talking. They did not just interview other artist. They also talked to her ex’s, friends, family, and her management. The director did a very good job on this documentary. It is a tragic story. If she would have stayed with her original manger. She might still be with us.

Closing, I was in point of my life when she was raising up. I was not listening to new music. I did not know a lot about her. I knew of her name and her death. I am happy that I watched this movie. I will be picking up her music. I love Jazz and Blues because of the fact that I am a bass player. It is in my wheel house. Amy Winehouse could have been a legendary jazz singer. It is a sad story. She reminds me a lot of Jim Morrison. I am a huge Doors fan. I highly recommend watching this movie ever if you are not a music fan. I am not sure what will be my next documentary. I know that I am looking at “I will be gone in the Dark” or “Stair Case.” I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for coming by. Please, give me any feedback good or bad. I want this series to be successful and have you enjoy it. Until then, play hard and party on!! \m/

Cheers!
