Super Duper Alice Cooper [Blu-ray] [2014] [NTSC] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Alice Cooper
10 of 10 people found the following review helpful
Majority of the film uses photographs (some with animation) live tour videos and also snippets of tv interviews.
A lot of voice over work from Alice and the people involved with him, though we never see the voices behind the mic so if you're expecting new one on one interview work on screen, you wont find it here.
The majority of the film focuses on Alice's early years, the first two hits and his decent into drugs and alcohol and his rehabilitation. There is little focus placed on his return in the 80s and nothing afterwards, which is a shame considering his induction to the hall of fame in 2011
There is also a few deleted scenes that really should have been in the main… Read more

I have to say at first I was worried that this would be a hash job with how cheap the blu ray was to begin with. But boy was I wrong. To say the film is 20 years old this year, the picture has new life breathed into it.
Hook is one of my fave films of all time so naturally I have seen it countless times. With this new blu ray release I am picking out details that I had never noticed before and its fantastic. The picture is clear and sharp, the colours more vibrant. This is how the film should look, to do neverland justice and… Read more
Heavy Metal - Louder Than Life [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Judas Priest
Great dvd covering the birth of Heavy Metal, all the way to the recent (not so recent now) thrash metal explosion. Has alot of great bands ranging from Led Zep, deep purple, black sabbath and alice cooper.
Extras were interesting, the interview with dee snider was alot of fun and the timeline was a great look at the past and album releases.
Only thing I didn't like about the dvd was the confessions of a headbanger extra.
In all I thought it was a very narrow minded outlook on things and they just chose the wrong person, so this is one thing you could probably miss from watching as there is alot more to the music and culture than what he has expressed (even if it is his own… Read more
