Michael Jordan (Deluxe Limited Edition) Blu-ray Review
on February 17, 2011
Well, let me begin by stating all the good about this compilation. The good is that if you are a Jordan fan, like obviously I am, then you are considering purchasing the most comprehensive collection of Jordan moments EVER, and at a very fair to affordable price. I have been a Jordan fan for pretty much all of my life. Now in my latter 20's these moments still bring a childlike exuberance for my childhood hero, this legendary athlete. Furthermore, to those fans of "the game" of basketball who will be witnessing MJ for the first time you are especially in for a real treat! Not only is "Air Jordan's" most spectacular moments brought back to life in this collection, the moments have been restored in high definition blu-ray quality. Really! We all know about the hype of movies and sports on blu-ray discs, but these moments actually look better SO MUCH BETTER than when they actually took place. Also, all of you long time fans can finally stop worrying so much about trying to preserve your favorite moments on VHS and DVD's. Moreover, this complication includes the following classic moments... (Over 16 hrs and 32 min. of footage!)
Films: "Come Fly With Me", "Michael Jordan's Playground", "Airtime", "Above and Beyond", and "His Airness".
Games: 1986 Playoffs Game 2: Chicago vs. Boston (Scores 63 Points), 1990 Chicago vs Cleveland (Scores 69 Points), 1993 Finals Game 4: Chicago vs. Phoenix (Scores 55 Points), 1997 Finals Game 5: Chicago vs. Utah (The Flu Game), 1998 Finals Game 6: Chicago vs. Utah (The Sixth Title)
-2009 Hall of Fame Induction Speech
-Slam Dunk Highlights
-Michael's Great 8
-The Making of Michael Jordan's Playground
-And Much More
The only real downside to this collection is that there are not any of his All Star appearances, 1992 Dream Team Olympic Highlights/gold medal ceremony, college games,198 "Space "songs/highlights, 1987-88 full slam dunk contests, commercials: Gatorade, Wheaties, Nike shoe commercials, Hanes, Energizer, Ballpark Hotdogs,music video's (of Space Jam or "Jam" with Michael Jackson), or even his last game. However, these moments would make GREAT additions for a 25th compilation. Also, the loading screen music sounds rather basic and repetitative. It's a crying shame that potentially the geatest athlete of all-time is represented by some corny ole elevator music...Blah! That's just nasty, and not in a good way,...OOH!
In a few closing words, to date, this is the BEST Michael Jordan compilation yet, if you happen to be a Jordan fan. A LOT of stuff is left out, but I suppose even a little nibble of greatness is better than nothing at all.
An awesome addition for any Jordan fan!!!!!
