Executive Producer: Marky Ramone
Produced, Directed & Edited By: John Cafiero

An appropriately rough-and-tumble visual scrapbook of the Ramones' 20-year run, Ramones: Raw is sure to please fans of the legendary punk band with over five hours of live performances and rare behind-the-scenes footage. The core of the disc is a rock & roll Frankenstein of ferocious live performances of their most well-loved numbers, including "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Rockaway Beach," and many others, interspersed with footage of the band on television and at venues around the world. But for veteran Ramones followers, the disc's real value comes in the supplemental features, which are crowned by an hourlong, never-before-seen performance filmed for Italian television. The extras also include rowdy appearances on everything from Howard Stern's early '90s TV series to the NYC cable access program Uncle Floyd; clips from drummer Marky Ramone's extensive Super-8 footage of the band offer an off-stage glimpse at the group's humor, especially in the face of frantic international audiences. All this, capped by wry commentary by Marky and Johnny, means that if you've flown the Gabba-Gabba-Hey flag at any point in your life, you'll want Ramones: Raw. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Raw, Very Ramones April 12, 2005
Before I put Ramones Raw in the DVD player I thought it might seem bittersweet to watch, what with three of the band members now deceased. But instead of making me feel sad, the footage only made me happy that the world ever got to experience this thing called Ramones in the first place.

The DVD contains five hours' worth of footage, including concert footage from 1980 to 1996, clips of television appearances (Howard Stern and Uncle Floyd), their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and "I, Ramones," a concert shot in Italy.

With exception to concert footage, most of what we see was shot by Marky Ramone on his Super 8 camera. Apparently Marky was determined to capture life on the road for the band and it is his behind-the-scenes footage that makes this DVD worthwhile. The title is appropriate as some of what you see is indeed raw, and it gets a bit confusing at times because things aren't in chronological order.

Some of the more interesting footage includes the band's van being mobbed by screaming and fanatical fans much like the Beatles in "A Hard Day's Night," and Johnny sarcastically giving tour manager Monte Melnick a hard time anytime things get chaotic: "Really well organized, Monte. Nice job." Not.

We also get to see the usually stoic Johnny actually laugh and joke as well as sobering evidence of Dee Dee's physical and mental decline from drug use as we see clips of a youthful and vibrant Dee Dee and a hardened and somewhat narcissistic one. There are also lots of shots of the boys sitting on the toilet, which they themselves find hilarious.

Joey appears to be an easy-going, laid back guy who gets along well with everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fans Only - really really Raw. November 11, 2004
If you love the Ramones in all their ragged glory, then RAW will suit you fine. Just make sure you understand that the emphasis here in on the ragged. Culled mostly from Marky Ramone's (also serving as the executive producer) collection of home super eight's, RAW combines extensive footage of the band as they traveled the world. The material is also not presented chronolgically, and that can get jarring. At times, these low-fi bits get tedious, best serving as bridges between the really good stuff. Of which there is plenty. You get to see clips from (mostly European and South American) concerts, TV clips and the band as they accept a gold disc award.

Oddly enough, the true high points of RAW are in the bonus materials, the 30 minute "I Ramone" concert sequence in particular. The "Up All Night" and "Space Ghost" segments are cool too. But frankly, if you are only curious about the Ramones and want to pick up some home viewing, my advice is to hold out for the superior "End of the Century - The Story of the Ramones," the warts and all 2004 documentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Candid and Chaotic Glimpse Behind the Scenes July 12, 2005
Ironically, since the premature passing of Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee, Tommy and Marky Ramone have been busy keeping the Ramones name more relevant than ever- Tommy producing a Ramones-themed musical à la the current trend of Mamma Mia, We Are the Champions, etc, and Marky with, among other projects, the release of this DVD. The band's image can be found on diverse merchandise, from t-shirts to comic books.

As opposed to the more somber, parochial and straight-forward End of the Century doc, Raw is non-linear and has a more behind-the-scenes, hang with the band feel, with quick, random edits and wipes of (mostly) Marky's video diary footage interspersed with various concert highlights. We get to see first hand what it was like to be a Ramone, especially during the final 10 years of the band.

Whether escaping hordes of manic fans by claustrophobic van in South America (where they were superstars), visiting a local zoo in Australia, signing autographs in Japan or early morning chain smoking at some hotel breakfast joint in Spain, the footage gives a very intimate feel of the band.

Raw shows lots of private joking, internal catch-phrasing, practical joke pulling, and various clowning around. What it does not show is a lot of interaction between other members of the band. Whether by design or default, you will be hard pressed to see Joey, Johnny, CJ and Dee Dee doing much verbal interacting. Nor does it show band members engaging in serious fighting, which surely must have happened on occasion.

The emphasis is on Marky and his camera interacting with the individual members. And each member brings his personality to the lens. Marky's position as a member of the band makes it easy to get the others to be themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ramones Raw October 1, 2004
This is not a review of the Ramones, who are for, all purposes, one of the greatest bands of all time. But "Ramones Raw", the first officially issued Ramones DVD, feels like patchwork.

Composed mostly of behind the scenes footage of the last eight years of the Ramones, "Ramones: Raw" tries to tell the story of the band from its beginning to its end in the mid ninties. And for the most part it fails.

If you had never heard the Ramones and wathced this DVD, you would probably wonder what all the fuss was about. The behind-the-scenes stuff is so unrelentingly boring I'd be really suprised if anyone but the most die hard fans would want to watch it twice. Even they may not want to.

And the live clips that pepper the film and serve to move the documentary are some of the sloppiest, poorest quality Ramomes live footage this side of a bootleg shot by an epilpetic parapalegic. The sound muddies up the songs to a point where you can hardly even hear it. Some will say that this is "charming". I say its just plain lazy.

Also included on the DVD are some bonus features that aren't really bonuses. All the extras that are taken from T.V. shows feel as if they were put on this DVD from an aging VHS copy somebody owned, and with the exception of an intersting bit taekn from MTV's "120 Minutes" do little to help show the Ramones legacy in the way the recent "End of the Century" documentary did.

The editing is choppy and the whole 105 minute program is just unforgivably boring, which is all the more sad since the band in question is the Ramones. They deserve better than this hackwork job, and so does the viewer.

Immesnly dissapointed doesn't even begin to describe.
