5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bee Gees Documentary
I'm a bit surprised by the reviewers comments below. I think this is an excellent documentary telling the story of the Bee Gees from start to the present day. It is based around brand new interviews with Barry and Robin, sometimes together, sometimes separately, and on extensive interviews fortuitously filmed with Maurice shortly before his sad early death. If you're a...

As a fan I bought this, however I was a little dissapointed. In our own time does present the life of the BeeGees and if it was the only film about the group I would give more stars. In my opinion Keppel Road and The official story :This is where I came in already presented the life of the Gibb Family in a more compeling way... Perhaps the aim of this was to say a few...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Bee Gees Documentary, 30 Nov 2010

This review is from: In Our Own Time [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I'm a bit surprised by the reviewers comments below. I think this is an excellent documentary telling the story of the Bee Gees from start to the present day. It is based around brand new interviews with Barry and Robin, sometimes together, sometimes separately, and on extensive interviews fortuitously filmed with Maurice shortly before his sad early death. If you're a Bee Gees fan you will have undoubtedly heard some of the stories before but there was plenty that was new to me as well. The archive footage is terrific, although inevitably somewhat variable in picture quality depending on its age and again a mix of familiar and previously unseen. The film makers obviously had great sympathy with and affection for the band and have put together a beautifully crafted programme running for a little short of two hours. If you want to know more about the Bee Gees this is definitely the place to start.
Finally, this was never advertised as a Bee Gees concert so I don't know where the previous reviewer got that idea from. If you want to see the Bee Gees live then I'd go for "One Night Only" which is a brilliant concert filmed in Las Vegas in the late nineties. The Bee Gees - One Night Only [DVD] [1998] Simply unmissable for any Bee Gees fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost The Last Chapter - Almost, 7 Dec 2010

This review is from: In Our Own Time [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
It is very difficult to gauge this latest release of Bee Gees history. Probably 2/3 or more has been seen or heard before. All the clips of the late Maurice Gibb are deftly placed at the appropriate spots, and Barry and Robin have plenty of space to share their feelings. The DVD begins with a good amount of history of the early years in Australia and how they became famous in England. The DVD is full of new and old musical clips from shows and concerts that add resonance and feeling to the progress of this renowned group of brothers. However, it seems less than complete.

More than most of the concert footage, whether new or old is fuzzy or out-of-focus. Even the more recent concerts (in the last fifteen years) seem old. Maurice's clips are fair quality while Barry and Robin are crystal clear. The time difference is obvious. The story-line of First Fame in the sixties to the doldrums of the early seventies is portrayed. The excess and success of the later seventies is also fairly discussed in equal time, but nothing is truly new. The eighties are glossed over with very little of the brothers individuals works being mentioned other than what they produced for other artists. There is some new and fascinating stories about `You Win Again" from Maurice and the nineties being a new period, accompanied by some new rare clips on television concert appearances. Still, something is missing. The sound mixing can be chosen in DTS Digital Surround Sound, Dolby Surround 5.1 or Dolby Stereo. However, the two surround choices are uneven. Some clips are clearer than others while many are dulled or inadequate for true surround experience. In most cases the only difference is the lack of vocals in the rear speakers, even with the concert clips.

The other DVD's covering their history, such as This Is Where I Came In - The Official Story of the Bee Gees and Bee Gees - One Night Only / The Official Story are almost better in quality and excitement with many artist contributing their opinions and inspirational learning's. The only true new information is when the modern Barry and Robin appear to discuss their family's history. This is one of the first times that one gets a real sense of acceptance and personal growth. The discussion of Andy's passing is heartfelt and the loss of Maurice is heartbreaking. Closing the show, Barry and Robin join for a closed session of, "To Love Somebody" and "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart", two of the most appropriates songs for this show. The final conversation between Barry and Robin is a real eye-opener. Robin unabashedly praises Barry for his achievements and expresses his honor in being his brother. Barry responds as a real gentleman. The viewer gets the feeling that maybe, finally something new will happen. But then again, this show seems like another chapter not yet quite finished. It satisfies the viewer and makes one wonder, what can possibly be next?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD of the Bee Gees!, 24 Nov 2011
This review is from: In Our Own Time [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I really like this DVD and I'm so happy I bought it. Great retrospective of one of the best bands in history. The Brothers Gibb are so down to earth in the interview segments. You almost feel like you're sitting with them having casual conversation. The performance clips are just fantastic. You get a real sense of how very talented these men are, as songwriters and performers, and why their music will remain timeless. This is a great purchase that I will enjoy watching again and again. Long live the Bee Gees!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new ..., 20 Nov 2010
As a fan I bought this, however I was a little dissapointed. In our own time does present the life of the BeeGees and if it was the only film about the group I would give more stars. In my opinion Keppel Road and The official story :This is where I came in already presented the life of the Gibb Family in a more compeling way... Perhaps the aim of this was to say a few wors about the tragic death of Maurice... but wouldn't it be better to reissue Keppel Road or TIWICI on Blue Ray/DVD and perhaps add an additional disc...
the other thing is that there are no additional material on the Blue Ray. Still ... It is good to see the two brothers singing again ...
But to all those who want to learn something about the life of the BeeGees: buy The official Story- This is where I came in instead of this... it really tells us more about the life of that fantastic group...
