4.0 out of 5 stars If your a hater then don't read this review! July 29, 2013
By Bryan
I don't understand the reviews on here that say Arnel is 'exploited.' How? He's singing, which he clearly loves to do, and he's making money and no longer living in the slumbs of Manilla in 4 feet of water on days it rains. He is taking care of his family and keeping the band alive and thriving. Was he hired because he sounds like Steve Perry? Yes. So what. He can sing and he's humble and likeable. What's the problem? This is a great documentary although I was disapointed that they glossed over the Perry years rather quickly but I guess, by the title, this is primarily Arnel's story and not the 40 year history of Journey. Anyone who gives this documentary a negative review are simple haters and nothing more. Would you rather the band not be around? Perry is not coming back. If he were he would've been back 10 YEARS ago! Move on. Go Arnel!

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific, articulate film March 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I used to like Journey. Now I love them, after watching this documentary. I love the way the band members respect and protect Arnel. How they all matured over the years. I love that Arnel reflects all that's good in the Filipino culture: kindness, self-effacing, seeing the positive in every situation. The film even got me interested in the band's earlier history with Steve Perry. And then there's Arnel's voice! His singing gives me goose bumps! It's an articulate, well-made documentary. There isn't one wasted frame.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had my doubts... March 21, 2013
I've always been one to believe that just because it taste like chicken doesn't always mean it's chicken. Having been born in the Philippines and immigrating to the United States when I was a year old, I've been a harsh critic of what comes from the Philippines, especially that of which can either inspire or just embarrass the hell out of me.

I rented this on iTunes a few days ago while on a business trip in Taiwan and I have to say that while no one (other than my parents) has made me proud to be Filipino, this documentary simply warmed me to be a little bit more open-minded. Having been a Journey fan since the 70's, I was saddened by the departure of Steve Perry and cringed at the notion of Steve Augeri. I refused to listen to anything done by Arnel Pineda...

...until I saw this documentary.

Ramona Diaz's behind-the-scenes documentation of not only Arnel Pineda's road to becoming the frontman for Journey as well as what the rest of the band thought was absolutely incredible. There's many thing to appreciate about this story, Arnel Pineda, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, and Deen Castronovo. There truly is a lot more to appreciate outside the music we never see but only hear.

This is proof that inspiration can originate from a constantly developing third-world country that doesn't have to come in the form of boxing gloves.

I will be picking this DVD up on its August release.

Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring rags to riches story, a true fairy tale March 10, 2013
By Melboca
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of Journey and now of Arnel Pineda I was looking forward to watching the back story of his journey no pun intended. Arnel is infectious on screen, he exudes warmth and spirit as well as showing his fears & vulnerability. I love seeing the glimpse of the love between Arnel & his wife Cherry. If you love Journey music, history & a true life Cinderella story then you will love & fall in love with Arnel and this movie.

I missed the chance to see this 2012 documentary when I covered the WXPN Music/Film Festival in April, and I'm glad I got to finally see it, having heard good things from friends who caught it then. I'll admit up front that I was never a big fan of the band Journey (nor most of the bands of the 1970s, so I didn't look it the film from a fan's perspective but, rather, as a music journalist who loves well made documentaries. And it won my approval on this level.

The first three words of the title refer to the four core members of the band Journey, who had a ten year string of hits beginning in 1978, when they disbanded, returning as a group in 1995, until their lead singer - Steve Perry - left for good. Perry's replacement for the next 10 years, Steve Augeri, wasn't enough to get the band on the charts. But founding members Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain still believed in the band. They went to the "ball" looking for their Cinderella of a lead singer. In this case the "ball" was Youtube, where Schon spotted a young singer in Manila (the Philippines) doing Journey cover songs with his band Foo. They brought that singer - Arnel Pineda - to the US for an audition and the rest, as they say, is musical history. Arnel's been the lead with Journey for the last eight years. So the rest of the film's title belongs to Arnel, since filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz (who specializes in story-driven documentaries) was there (literally a fly on the wall - from that first audition through the end of the band's 2008 world tour (ending in Arnel's home town).

Coming from a poor area of Manila , having done, alcohol and drugs and fathering two children (one out of wedlock), Arnel is seeing both the plusses and minuses of fame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing March 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Reminder that there are good things in the world and good things happen to this young man who really deserved it. See the band as such a supportive and talented band and they along with Arnel deserve all of the good that has come their way. This focusd on the band and their new path and showed such class and grace by not making this negative about former band members. Keep up the amazing work and for your talent and the type of men you are you deserve all the good that comes your way! Play On!
