3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but lacking, June 4 2004
By 
This review is from: NBA Dynasty Series - Chicago Bulls - The 1990s [Import] (DVD)
You'll read other reviews who praise this DVD simply because of the subject matter. I shall not do that. Yes, the Bulls of this era were incredible, but just because this DVD awr focuses upon them doesn't mean that the DVD set itself is incredible.
In this set we are treated to a number of features, including a "history" of the bulls, along with recaps of each of their championships and six "complete" games, one from each of their championship runs.
Why they entitled the "history of the chicago bulls," as they did is beyond me. This is no history. This is a brief rundown of their lack of a championship with an extremely short runtime and a mention of Jordan as a segway into the discs other features. This might actually be the only new content on the disc, as all of the other features (even the games) are taken from content that has ran on NBA TV for quite some time.
As for the recaps of each of their championship runs, they are certainly full of great footage and interviews but they certainly show their age as they are not new. As I said before, each of these has already been broadcast on NBA TV numerous times and if you've seen it once the suspense is lacking. Replay value is at a minimum here.
While listed as the "Extra Features," the games featured on the set are actually the bread and butter. Presented just as they were when originally broadcast the quality of the games is superb. But wait. What's this? They slice out parts of the games? You'll find yourself wondering what happened when you miss an entire 8 minutes of the first quarter. Why? Because the games, too, are part of the "NBA's Greatest Games" series broadcast on NBA TV and were edited to run in the time alotted by that channel. I don't know about you but when I buy a DVD and it lists a game as this set does I don't expect this kind of cheesy lack of presentation. I want to see the game!
Long story short, it's a good set and worth the $40 price tag (depending on where you get it) but don't be disappointed if you don't see anything new. And be prepared to be annoyed when parts of your favorite games are edited out to make room for non-existent commercials.
