5.0 out of 5 stars 2pac/DVD Oct. 17 2003
Format:DVD
When I see a Tupac Documentary, I want to see something that represents him well. I want something that is good for fans, critics, and casual onlookers all at the same time. I want something that highlights his intelligence, and complexity, and depth, and significance. I want something that makes me proud to be a Tupac fan. I want something pretty much free of cursing. I want something that makes we want to share it with everyone. I want something that helps people understand why I'm so into him. I want something that could potentially turn someone on to Tupac. TUPAC VS. delivers on all those fronts. It's basically what I wanted and expected from ThugAngel, but didn't get.
A major part of the content is an interview done in 1995 shortly before he was released from prison, and right before he headed to Death Row. He's not smoking, not drinking, not cursing ----- just talking like the mature, intelligent, educated person that he is so capable of being. The tone of the interview was kinda like the brief interview that appears as an extra on the Gang Related DVD.
To really understand a huge part of who Tupac was and what he came from I HIGHLY recommend a movie that was put out in about 1994 by Mario Van Peebles called BLACK PANTHER. You can't understand Tupac until you really understand the history of the Black Panther Party.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Pity For Gang Member Rap Stars Aug. 29 2002
Format:DVD
Let's see if I understand; I'm supposed to get all choked up when a no-talent, gangbanging thug gets whacked? Growing up listening to Sly Stone, Hendrix, Stevie Wonder and Motown, I find it appalling at how black music has decayed and pop culture praises a punk like Tupac.
About fifty years ago there was a TV show called "Amos & Andy." It was previously a comedic radio show about 2 black men and various black characters. The radio show was famous and was loved by both blacks and whites. When the radio show was turned into a TV show, the NAACP and other black groups were outraged at how blacks were portrayed as silly and undignified. The show was eventually taken off the air. These days, we now have a form of music that portrays black youths as nothing but gang banging, drug dealing killers who see women as nothing but bitches and "ho's." Do we see black organizations outraged? No, rap music is defended and embraced by all.
Too bad I am forced to give this [artist] one star instead of none. Giving recording contracts to gang members is like giving whiskey to the Indians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tupac - The Living Word Sept. 11 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After seeing a screener copy of the film I do believe that Tupac Vs. is a highly organized document of an icon, a philosopher, and more importantly of a man. A film which for the first time estimates the value of Tupac Shakur. It is not a door into the history of contemporary black culture, it is history itself. Tupac Vs. is the first and only film acknowledging the authority of Tupac's words. A film defining the essence of his life in such an original way - a cognitive motion, ending in passion since there is no way to crack it. Because who can stop the sun seized by a passion for returning? Compared to this film most of the other ones about Tupac Shakur are like a dried-up lake: with neither depth nor moisture. Bravo to the filmmakers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Commentary stinks but 2pac still the man Feb. 24 2003
Format:DVD
Tupac Vs has really good footage of 2Pac in concert, the Outlawz and some of the then-Death Row staff. Loved the interview with 'Pac in jail. Some of the stuff he says will shock the hell out of you. He really is a legend and a prophet.
Only thing that bugged me about the documentary was them freaken commentators. That Dyson girl and Elihu maggot write a book about 'Pac and all of a sudden they think they're experts. Man, if you did'nt know him personally then stop showing up on dvds. They just annoy you and spoil the whole video. Mopreme would have been a much better option.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Dang Perplexing Feb. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have a deep and abiding respect for blacks, black culture, and the need to continue the important struggle for equal rights. The great civil rights icons are my heart-felt heros.
This is why it makes me wonder drop-jawed, when I see so much of black America (it seems) embrace some clever gang member, who can couch his utter nonsense in some cute rhymes, dip & bop on stage, and then get glamorized and idolized. I see no value in his work because there is no value.
It makes blacks look dumb, and they are NOT dumb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tupac Vs. - Manifestation of a Man's life
I loved this film to distraction.
We stand guilty before Tupac of one thing: that films like Tupac Vs. did not come earlier. But this is a cross we will have to bear. Read more
