Editorial Reviews

No, it's not a dream. In the 100th World Series Championship ever played, the Boston Red Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals to become World Series Champions. For 86 years, Red Sox fans cursed everything from their luck to Babe Ruth as they watched others celebrate victory in the Fall Classic. But this year promised to be different. They swept past the heavy-hitting Anaheim Angels and then faced the New York Yankees in the ALCS. The Red Sox fell behind their archrival three games to none - and relinquished 19 runs in Game 3. Still, they refused to give up. Boston won the next two at Fenway Park - and completed the greatest comeback in the history of sports - at Yankee Stadium. Riding a crest of momentum, Boston advanced to the World Series, where they faced a St. Louis squad that had won more games than any other team in 2004. But by now, the Red Sox were unstoppable - and it took just four games to capture the title and extinguish forever the talk of a curse. Rest assured Red Sox Nation. You are living a dream - a dream come true.

Format: DVD
Having attended the premiere in Boston last night, I can attest that this is not merely a World Series production. The Sox are covered from spring training through the season, then into the Anaheim Series. A fair amount of time is spent on the ALCS as well. More time is spent on the World Series because of MLB's focus, unlike the NFL as someone else mentioned.

The film starts with a recap of that curse thing and refers to it a couple more times before the end, but guess what? It doesn't bother me any more. During the season highlights, there is a brief segment on the Nomar trade. There is also a brief look-back at the two previous Red Sox-Cardinals World Series. Narration is by Massachusetts native Denis Leary, who does a fine job.

The clips are fun to watch, and the interviews make them even more exciting. Unfortunately, I only heard about half of what was said because of the frequent and enthusiastic applause of the audience, myself included. Can't wait to watch it in the quiet of my living room. From what I did hear, many of the interviews were done during the playoffs, so for example you see Johnny Damon talking about having to go into St. Louis and try to win 2 games on their home field. It's a peek into what the players (and Tito and Theo and Larry and JWH and the fans and...) were thinking as the story was unfolding, before we all knew the ending.

The production quality is excellent. The studio interviews were done against a black background, so there is nothing to distract the viewer from the interviewee.

While we saw only the main movie, the MLB Productions representative who introduced it said that the many extras on the DVD are "must see."

This info came from MLB.com, which is marketing the DVD. Apparently it covers a lot more than highlights of the four WS games:

"We didn't want to show a highlight reel of the postseason." said Gavant. "We wanted to show a film, a movie, and I hope we delivered in terms of a great story arc that we followed. We wanted to differentiate this production by really making it a documentary that could have been a theatrical release, more so than a highlight video.

"We could have even gone longer on this program," said Gavant. "It's 90 minutes long with an additional 20 minutes of bonus footage. There were really so many more stories to do. What we aimed to do is give fans an inside look at what was going on behind the scenes while they were watching the World Series."

Some of the DVD highlights include:

A look at the Red Sox Nation: A breakdown of the Red Sox season and highlights from their Division Series championship over the Angels.

An in-depth look at the history of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry and highlights of the Red Sox's miraculous ALCS with New York.

In-depth highlights and behind-the-scenes footage from all four games with the Cardinals.

Highlights from Boston's championship parade following the series.

Interviews with most of the Series' stars, including Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Johnny Damon, Curt Schilling, Derek Lowe and manager Terry Francona.

Bonus footage includes: Ortiz's walk-off ALCS home runs, the ALCS celebration, postseason pregame radio and TV commentary and a section called "The Storytellers," containing historical interviews with Smokey Joe Wood, Joe Garagiola, Tim McCarver, Fred Lynn, Carlton Fisk and Dwight Evans.

The story of 2004 was the Red Sox finally becoming World Champions ending the so called curse of the Bambino. This was a four game sweep and the Red Sox rode high with no let down after another amazing ALCS against the Yankees. Down three games to none and feeling like they were about to be swept away the Red Sox behind the clutch hitting of David Ortiz amazingly won the next four games to be the first team in any playoff series to come back from being down three games to none. For a Yankee fan like me this was extremely hard to stomach especially the bloody sock heroics of Curt Schilling.

The tape is rescued because of the coverage of the Yankee - Red Sox rivalry and the highlights of unbelievable ALCS. Members of the Red Sox Nation will love it. I am disappointed because the Yankees let a sure win slip away. Also it is kind of boring to watch the Red Sox steamroll the Cardinals and their star first baseman Albert Pujois. It was disappointing to see a good team like the Cardinals unravelled by the Red Sox.

Format: DVD
As a Red Sox fan, I really don't want a play by play of the whole season and the playoffs when remembering this year. I want an overview of what happened plus showing all the "chill scenes" (credit goes to The Sportsguy for this term). In otherwords, the high and low points of the season, as well as the things that bring me goosebumps everytime I think about them. And this DVD has them all. From scenes of the hope of Spring Training, to the June Swoon, the trading of Nomar, and the fight between Varitek and A-Rod that turned the season around for the Sox, the regular season is covered in adequate fashion. The playoffs are covered in remarkable fashion, with the high and low points of each game covered, along with interviews of Red Sox players and management. A nice touch is with shots of game winning hits and outs, there are a variety of calls, from Fox's Broadcast to Boston Radio and TV broadcasts as well. Finally, we end with the Curse of the Bambino, the actual World Series, and the post game celebrations and fan celebrations in Boston, culminating with the Parade. There are many touching moments where Red Sox fans are quoted how they thought they would never see a World Series victory in their lifetimes, and how they were glad to share it with their family and friends. The DVD is wonderfully narrated by Dennis Leary, and really brings together the whole season, playoffs, and World Series nicely in around 90 minutes. Like my title says, a must own for Sox fans who want to remember this special season over and over again.
