Halloween is easily one of the most iconic horror films of all time. It's originality, and certainly horror's best elements, are captured on film, and the most terrifying thing about the film is the way it sticks to a genre. I personally don't see any reason to change the films by changing the subject matter. The movie is scary and effective, and overall is probably one of the best horror movies of all time. So with that said, I think it's safe to say that none of the horror films before it can match up to the original. However, there are some very important things to know about this film. This film has a great horror film feel to it, which I love. The music is a must have, and it's just a great feel to this film. Now I know I'm going to get a lot of hate, but. People don't talk about this film like it's the most frightening film ever. They talk about it like it's a cult classic, and to a lesser extent that's not really fair. It's not a cult classic. I love it for it's scares, and the action that's in it. But it's not the most frightening film. And people talk about it like it's a horror classic, but it's not. The best horror films are the ones that, in some way, is amazing. The Night Of The Living Dead is amazing. The Exorcist is amazing. It's an incredibly terrifying film, and it has the best acting of any horror film ever made. So in that aspect, I believe the majority of horror fans can really enjoy this film, and it has its share of scenes that are classic. It has great acting, good scares, and a good overall feel to it. 8/10

Hearing some of the reviews here, I expected this to be just another "don't trust the reviews" type of video, but what a surprise. This was a very good documentary about the rise of hard rock, the music of James Dean and Tom Petty and the young man who became the only major rock star of the 1960s. Though it doesn't go as far as some other recent documentaries, it's a very well-done piece of work. The interviews with many of the band members were riveting, with only a few annoying questions that would have been better left out of the film. The music was terrific, and really put this music in a whole new light. The question everyone asked during the film was "how did this rock 'n' roll thing come about?" The answer, of course, was the massive marketing of the Beatles, the massive marketing of the "Fab Four" (as I call them), and the marketing of the rock 'n' roll lifestyle. It was about those things, and there was no way that any of that would have happened without the Beatles. The questions that were asked of those people are questions that have always been asked of rock 'n' roll, and the answer is the same. The Beatles were simply THE Beatles, and the Rolling Stones (or the Stones, in the sense of the time period) were the Stones. While I agree with some of the other comments on this film that it's a bit slow in places, that isn't a negative thing. It's a very slow film. It takes a long time to get going. And it's hard to get that going in the 80 minutes it runs for. But, it's worth it to see all of the interviews, to hear what the other members had to say about it, and to get a sense of the personal struggle they had to deal with while they were still young and in the beginning stages of the band. All in all, this is an excellent documentary about rock 'n' roll, and is definitely one of the best things to come out of the festival circuit. 8/10

This documentary tells the story of the Las Vegas rock 'n roll phenomenon of the late seventies and eighties through the eyes of the people who made it happen. The former producer of the film and a band member (who himself had to leave the scene) make a very nice film, while a new film maker (who never made it to the top) looks very disappointed and makes a very different film. The film focuses on three distinct eras in the history of rock: the sixties, the seventies and the eighties. The documentary is an entertaining look at the scene from all sides. A lot of the people in the scene (including myself) are very nice, and their comments (from the people involved) are very honest. I have never seen such a film, where they offer you all the important information about the music scene without being biased. It would have been nice to hear from the other players in the scene (who know something about the scene), as well, but I think it would have been very easy to portray them as friends, especially if they weren't in the scene that much. But I would like to see the documentary look at the music scene from the other sides. Who are the critics? How come the people who are interested in the scene can see that the industry was split up, but never see what went on behind the scenes? What do the people involved in the music scene look like? How would they describe themselves? I'm sure you'll find some gems in the interviews, like the guys who worked in the video store. They really give a great insight into the subject and can definitely make you understand what they're all about. Overall, this is a very interesting and very entertaining documentary. One of the best films I've seen in a long time.

This is the first film I have ever seen that I have really liked. It's a mixture of music and interviews, and they are both compelling. This documentary follows the story of a small indie band that was once the talk of the music world. From their humble beginnings in a basement, through their grand adventure to win the coveted Grammy for "Best Rock Performance" and their incredible concert tour, they are finally at the point of realization that they are finally what they were always meant to be: THE ANTI-HITERS. The band was initially a response to the success of artists like the Rolling Stones and The Who, but quickly grew into a movement of anti-establishment, anti-mainstream music. In one interview, the band members speak of how they were never allowed to have a normal life, and that they had to make their own choices in life. They also speak of their admiration for musicians such as David Bowie and The Doors, and how they have spent their entire lives in the music business. The documentary is also very good at showing the influence of music, particularly The Who, on the lives of the band members, and the impact they had on their peers. The film's style is very artistic, and it's very unique. It is very beautiful to see the band members, in their own words, in their own words, and to hear their music. The interviews with them are very entertaining, and the film has a very interesting and personal feel. It's also very well done. This film is not for the faint of heart, and it is not for the faint of heart. It is very well made, and it is very well shot. If you are a fan of indie music, you will love it. It's very powerful, and very well made. It is a must-see for anyone who loves independent music.

This documentary is not just about the pioneering jazz band that formed in New Orleans in 1962, but about the myriad connections that have shaped the band's sound over the years, and continue to influence current and future bands. While "Elvis: Sleepless in Seattle" (1982) was certainly a milestone in music history, the early 60s are not viewed in the same way. While the band certainly was influential on some bands and artists, its musical legacy is mostly in the past. The band was not necessarily the first to work in a hotel-within-a-hotel, and they certainly did not play "Telephone" at every concert, as well as they certainly were not the first band to use electronic instruments. The band was definitely an integral part of the Jazz revival in the early 60s, but as the band went on to become a fading part of the music scene (due to its break-up in 1967), its legacy has been largely forgotten. The documentary does a good job of highlighting the band's influence, and its historic and cultural impact. It also demonstrates the band's lack of success on its first tours, which some might consider unfortunate. However, it also shows how the band continued to give and play in the Jazz scene, playing in the wrong venues and doing things that were considered "off the wall" at the time. Though the band's greatness has faded somewhat in the intervening decades, the documentary captures the band's phenomenal influence in the early 60s. The documentary also provides an excellent look at the career of pianist James Brown, who was the band's first publicist, and has become one of the most important jazz musicians of all time. The documentary has a lot of great features, from interviews with major players and recording artists, to the archival footage and the footage from the band's early concerts. Although it is a decent documentary, it is not "Elvis: Sleepless in Seattle" and it is certainly not for everyone. While the film includes plenty of clips and stills of the band, it is somewhat on the technical side. Some of the videos are a little shaky, and the narration is quite slow. The music also does not sound great, and at times it is hard to hear the music. The music was never a great sound for the band's early concerts, which meant that the band had to change gear or cut the songs to make them sound good, and this certainly happened in some cases. The documentary also mentions the fact that Elvis never read any books or listened to any music, although he did receive a copy of a book on the band. This is a nice detail, but other than that, the music is not great. It is certainly not perfect, but is certainly an interesting historical document that is still relevant to today.

I first heard about this documentary several years ago, when I saw it on YouTube. It was not particularly well received at the time, partly because of the 'hip' notion of editing and partly because it was being promoted as an actual documentary. 'A Spiritual Haunting' is a documentary, but there is no edit. It is a very well edited documentary. A lot of it can be found in the book 'Spiritual Haunting' by Tim Lox. The documentary covers the period from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s, a period that the artist himself called "a period of paranoia". It is a fascinating period to look at, and a couple of interviews with people associated with the sessions are given. Tim Lox is interviewed several times, as is Mark Sheppard, who worked for him briefly at the time. Here are some other noteworthy interviews from the documentary: -Tim Lox's wife, Mary/Mary Worsley, discusses the influences of her husband -Tim Lox's son-in-law talks about the situation with the artist's death -Tim Lox's wife Mary/Mary Worsley, who suffered several debilitating strokes and who died in 2000, talks about the artist's "spiritual Haunting" -Jenny Birch talks about the artist, and says she is very impressed by what she has seen -Actors, including Debra Messing, and Larry Hagman discuss the artist -Michael Dormandy talks about working with the artist -Joan Crawford talks about having the artist as a friend, and also talking about her days as a singer (she is interviewed a couple of times) -Dorothy Carlin discusses the artist, and asks questions to an associate -David Proval talks about the artist's works and how much he cared for him, and how he feels about the artist's passing -Tim Lox's son-in-law talks about the artist's last moments, and talks about what he's done with the artist's art, and his reasons for having the artist's paintings and drawings. I am not very well versed on the artist, but I can recommend this documentary.

I watched this at a festival and I am glad I did. I am a major fan of Michael Hutchence. I just watched This American Life which was his debut, and it was so much more. After watching It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, I wanted to see more of his work, and this documentary was just the perfect way to go about it. In his debut at Sundance, he was blown away with how much he got out of the day to day, and I was even more impressed by his work from the beginning. I was blown away by the point of view that he showed, and what I loved about the movie, is that he goes as far as he can without getting preachy. That is what a documentary should be, and what a documentary should be. He talked about the show, how it began, and his background in music and the music industry. What really stuck out to me was that it was a very personal thing for him, and that really helped him be more open to what he's saying. He is a great director, and he did a great job of using music, music videos, and his passion to capture what he wants to say in the show. He goes back and forth in the show to capture moments from the show, and interviews from the cast and crew to get to the point he wants to get to, and he does this so well. For me, it was a great work, and I hope he does more work like this one. I know people love his work, but it's hard for me to relate to him as a musician, since his band, "Fun," was just amazing, and his band, "The Real D" is also great, but none of his band were my favorite, and I'm not a huge fan of their music. I'm really glad that he got more into the music, and didn't sound preachy. I hope to see him do more projects like this one. The music was really beautiful, and it really showed the show, and it also shows what is going on with Michael Hutchence. It shows how it is like being a musician, and it really shows the pressure that he has to face in order to make a song, and then to make it in the studio. I really liked the music, and it was really great to see it. The rest of the cast was amazing, especially Kelsey Grammar who I have never seen before in anything. She is just incredible, and she really brings out the best in everyone. It was very impressive to see what they had to do with making that movie, and how difficult it was, and what is going on with the show, and even with the movie. It was very interesting to watch, and I really liked the way it was done. It was very honest. I love the way that Michael did this documentary, and I'm so glad that he is now getting out into the public eye, and doing more. I hope to see a lot more from him.

The festival is legendary and so are its episodes. Even a short documentary about the festival couldn't top that, so we got this. It follows those great music festivals of the past that have been mentioned in so many interviews and many different videos. And it takes you right to the street, street corners and club floors to see the festival. With only 20 minutes on the streets of Athens and the rest of the footage is from the festival, it's not a great deal but it's really good. It's a great selection from some of the best musicians that you haven't heard of. And you can even hear old songs by some of the musicians that you might not have heard of at all. If you're into music festivals or just like seeing music festivals on film, then you'll love this. I also think it's a great documentary to see how music festivals were first started. It'll make you appreciate the past and all the memories from those past festivals. The locations, the people, the music and the events were all amazing. It also seems like there is a lot of passion and love for music in this documentary, which was cool. As for the music, it's all great and you can hear it in every song. The best of the music are the artists that played the festival. The musicians that played with them and how they worked with the bands to do the music. It's awesome to hear the way it was back then. I really can't say any more about this because it was really good and I really want to see it again. To me, it's a must-see. 8/10

Michael Hutchence's frank and spirited documentary about the story of the Who's The Who, The Who's The Who, and more, is just as influential as the documentary itself, yet it's very different in tone, subject, and production values, not to mention in the way it's presented. It's a lot of fun, and the Who's The Who (and its various incarnations) is surprisingly divisive to this day. The controversy surrounding the film is, I would argue, the best thing about it. It certainly isn't for everyone, and those who dislike it have very different ideas about what it's actually about. It's not for everyone, and that's why it's so controversial. The Who's The Who is essentially about the Who, as the film is called. It's more about the band, rather than about the song, and there's an abundance of footage of the Who performing, although it mostly is in concert. The documentary covers many different periods of the band's career, starting in its formative years, and then moving into the days of lead singer John Entwistle, and from there on into their success. There are interviews with many Who fans, and a huge amount of archival footage, and it's very comprehensive in scope. I'm not a huge fan of the documentary, but I think it's very well made, and the interviews are very well done, even if you don't like the band or the Who. It covers a lot of ground, and it's as complete as you can get with the Who, or any other band. It's well worth seeing. The Who's The Who is a really interesting, entertaining, and sometimes controversial documentary about the Who and the band's rise and fall. It's often controversial because it's fairly accurate in its portrayal of the band, as I've heard that it's sometimes difficult to distinguish between a documentary and an interview with one person from another. But, if you can take it with a grain of salt, it's a pretty well made film, and I think you'll enjoy it.
