This review is from: Best Of Christmas (Audio CD)
Great album. Real music. Just can't compare to the bs corporate manufactured Christmas albums that seem to dominate today. BB is on of a kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read., Nov. 7 2012
The author managed the band in the early years and has some interesting insight into the band you wont find anywhere else. Nothing earthshattering but as a fan I found it a very good read. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Doc., May 12 2012
This is exactly what I was looking for. An in depth, behind the scenes hockey dvd. I wish the NHL could produce dvds like this one. This is a four part film. Each forty minutes long. You go into the dressing room while the coaches are giving their teams a prep talk, practice, travel, at home with some players. You get to see footage you don't ever see normally. Into the dressing rooms. You see the emotions that these players exude. Real footage. Not just interviews and game footage and television footage. Highly, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary!!, Feb. 11 2012
I read the other reviews and I thought this was great. Lots of behind the scenes insight from child to adult. Basically telling his hockey life story. He describes special moments in his career and emotions that go along with those moments. This is not just a highlights disc which to me is perfect, although all his career achievments are included and highlights of those moments are here as well. Awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average offering, Jan. 22 2012
This review is from: NHL Top 10 Rivalries (DVD)
I found this to be very average. Not a lot of heart and soul went into creating this. It was as if someone at the corporate head office said "we need a video by next month about rivalries, hurry". Very corporate, made by corporates, come on NHL give us a real documentary put together by someone passionate about the game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, boring, boring..., Dec 27 2011
This review is from: Cowboys & Aliens (DVD)
The trailer looked great. Exciting and action packed. Seemed like a great story and I have always liked Harrison Ford. I was one hour into this when I decided to turn it off as I was bored to death. Come on writers, is this the absolute best story you could write? Could you not have thought of any twists or subplots? Who spends hundreds of millions of dollars making a movie with such a boring unmoving story? Is that all you got? So dissapointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars eh. I fell asleep., Dec 3 2011
This review is from: Insidious (DVD)
This was mildly scary. I was very excited when this came to dvd. Rented it right away even though the girl at the video store said it was bad but I thought i'd give it a try. Well it was bad. Just boring. And I really did fall asleep so I missed the ending (maybe the highlight of the film but I will never know). Come on horror script writers, is this the best you can do? Should I become a script writer?? Blah.
