Product Description

Krush Groove (DVD)

Amazon.ca

Like its progenitors Beat Street and Wild Style, Krush Groove is a movie about hip-hop that in its rush to document an emergent culture ignores plot, acting, cinematography, or anything else that makes a movie watchable or worthwhile.

That said, Krush Groove contains some nifty performances from hip-hop legends Run-DMC, the always hilarious Fat Boys (see Disorderlies if you can't get enough of their weighty shtick), brilliant MC Kurtis Blow, and Prince proteacute;gé Sheila E. Also look out for soon-to-be L.A. Law-yer Blair Underwood in a lead role. Performances aside, Krush Groove isn't def, it's just so-so. --Ethan Brown --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This movie is a hip-hop classic. It's not a movie for the bling-bling, bounce-bounce, hip-hop listener or the late comer to hip-hop culture. If you were down with this movement when it first started then you will definitly want to add this one to your video collection. If you are somebody that just got into rap music in the 90's or later... you may not feel it the same way. One of the other reviewers said they were "dissapointed" and didn't understand why Sheila E. got more props than LL or Beastie Boys... that's because they weren't known yet and Shelia E. was... if you were down from the start you would know that. This movie is not for the ignorant or casual hip-hop listener but rather for the seasoned conesiuer that REMEMBERS (not just heard about) when nobody even knew what rap was. This is not for the cats that think they know hip-hop becasue they went out and bought a bunch of old school records and now they think they're an expert. This is for heads that bought LL's "Radio" album when it was brand new in the store... not the one who just got it last week. This is for the REAL hip-hop heads...not the avant-guard backpacker who didn't buy RUN-DMC until after they became legends or thinks LL is different now than he was in '83.

Never mind that corny Leonard Maitlin quip. this is the story of the biggest rap label ever, told fictionally. Krush Groove is really DefJam Records, the label that would go on to host the biggest acts ever, including RunDMC, The Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, the FatBoys, Kurtis Blow (ALL FEATURED PROMINENTLY AND ACTUALLY DISPLAYING GOOD ACTING SKILLS), and later MethodMan, Redman, DMX and Public Enemy. This film has great performances, an angry Run coming on stage, positively commenting on the other performers quietly and declaring, "but this is my m.. house!" is great. Kurtis Blow does If I ruled the World, the FatBoys do their thing, etc. But in terms of seriousness and social blah blah, watching this movie, seeing the way Russel came up, and looking now at what he's become, is just amazing. They got Blair Underwood to play Russel Simmons, and he does a great job. This movie should, though it probably wont, go down as one of the best accounts of the achievement of the American Dream, through dangerous dealings and dreaming, all types of adversity and successes, in a music that was emerging. The movie was made in 85, and it takes place pretty much exactly as it was being made, with complete faith in its premise, its music, and its eventual success. That's quite amazing because you can now look at it as a historical testament, no exxageration, to one of the biggest cultural movements this nation has ever had. Hip hop heads, we'll go down like the gnostics, amazing innovators and proponents of culture, suppressed by the ignorant and the power-hungry. You'll show this movie to your kids one day.

Krush Groove is the most underrated rock n roll movie of the 1980s. Is it the Best music film of the 80s? No that title belongs to Purple Rain. Actually Krush Groove attempts to redo Rain's successful formula, using talented musicians generally playing themselves in a fictitious story with some realistic elements. It actually came out a year or so too early, with rap and hip hop still generally a black phenomenon despite Blondie's #1 pop "Rapture". (Debbie Harry makes an appearance here portraying a club singer.) The one "Actor" not playing himself was Blair Underwood who played the character Russell Walker (While the REAL Russell Simmons played a stage hand named Crocket) The story deals with a number of rap artists Run DMC, Kurtis Blow and the Fat boys in their efforts to make it big as hip hop stars. It deals with the good and bad of having a hit record on a small independent record label, competition between two brothers over the heart of a young female singer (Sheila E.), the consequences of borrowing money from a loan shark, the opportunity to sign with a major label and a talent contest looking for new hip hop talent. The contest includes an appearance from New Edition, an all too brief appearance from future superstars The Beastie Boys and an in studio audition from LL Cool J. The film was rated "R" generally for some mild violence and usage of the "F" word. (Six instances where two would automatically mean an "R" rating) It didn't do too hot at the box office. I had stated that the film came out a year or so too early. The reason I stated this was that in 1986, one year following this film's release, Run DMC's cover of Aerosmith's Walk This Way got heavy airplay on white radio, even going to number1 on album rock radio in Aerosmith's homebase of Boston MA.Read more ›

This movie is so cute, so happy, so silly, so fun. It has become a member of my family. The music is good, the characters are hilarious, and you can pick out bits of truth and history if you look. You can also play "Where's LL?". He is scattered a few places in the movie. And you get to see the real Russell Simmons talking to the character based on Russell Simmons, played by Blair Underwood. MTV had a hip hop day a couple of years ago, and they featured Krush Groove, hosted by Fab 5 Freddy. (You can also see F5F in the beautiful, classic, solid Wild Style.) The only advisory is to erase or fast-forward through the scene in which the Fat Boys (the Disko 3) are in their science class, right before they get into "Don't you dog me.... Aaarh aaarh, aaarh aaarh....". The classroom part contains an unnecessary dissection scene. Watch it and you'll see what I mean. Enjoy this movie, and by all means --- keep the spirit of Krush Groove alive! Word. :)
