Editorial Reviews

If you were born in the 70's, you are part of Generation X. Your parents were baby boomers, part of the me generation. Your decade began with Richard Nixon ... the Beatles broke up ... Disney World opened in Orlando, Florida... Jumbo jets revolutionized commercial flight ... the waterbed, Atari's video game Pong, the 8 track tape player ... and the disco ball became 70's icons.

2.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity August 14, 2012
By Carlos
Considering the hundreds upon of hundreds of films, trailers and TV shows that Mill Creek has in their archive you'd think putting together a retrospective like this would be a cinch for them. Unfortunately this "documentary" is very much like the WW2 Remembered DVD set I reviewed a while back. The packaging is fantastic and if you were going by the DVD cover alone you'd be forgiven for thinking that you're about to take a 90 minute stroll down memory lane. This "film" starts out well enough but then it's almost like Mill Creek gave up and just decided to run some government/industrial films from the era in their entirety. In this 70's set we get vintage short films about Apollo 13, Earth Day, the Energy Crisis, Watergate and the Bicentennial. I call them "short" film but some go on for a good 15-20 minutes. Anyone who lived through the 70's knows that a heck of a lot more than those aforementioned 5 events happened. After that (which takes up the bulk of the running time) we get a quick few minutes on 70's pop culture and then it's over.
I was amused at this DVD's coverage of films released in the 70's. Remember Jaws? Star Wars? Obviously Mill Creek doesn't because those and other 70' blockbusters don't get a mention. Look, I realize this DVD was cobbled together from public domain footage Mill Creek has in their archive and I don't expect actual clips from those films,but if you were to take a peek at the films released in their newly released Swinging Seventies movie set you'd see they could've used clips from many other films that are more representative of the decade than the ones they chose.
Again, why do they keep doing this? Mill Creek has some great material but they continually drop the ball on these documentaries.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time... September 9, 2013
This DVD is complete crap. It's basically 2 hrs of stock news footage. Mill Creek is such a ghetto company they couldn't show anything popular. Why do a documentary on the 70's if you don't talk about film or music. The historical stuff is important but 2 hrs of stock news footage with horrible narrative? Lame. Fail.

I wanted a documentary with multiple clips and this was mainly about Apollo 13. And it used old Nasa footage. There are no new interviews with anyone from the 70s. It has a nasally sounding narrator.

Pretty boring. I felt like I was watching a 16mm documentary in middle school on a Aika projector. It had a few highlights, but most of it was boredom. I actually fell asleep through the end. Way too much on the space program !
