3.0 out of 5 stars Some wonderful moments ...and that music! But soap opera draggy and too long ...., June 19, 2016

This review is from: Jersey Boys (DVD)
Drama w music or Hollywood musical? Eastwood 's direction has no clue . Ofcourse he has that always impossible task of translating Broadway stage to soundstage .
Production numbers perfectly realized , dazzling . Personal drama, well..,,only valli and devito characters shine. Some supporting performances look like failed auditions for the sopranos . Historians will be disturbed that Eastwood ignores the fact that in 1956 the Four Lovers had a national hit and that their liaisan Joe Pesci was no small time guy, either , w a King Records contract . The real life musical timeline handled poorly - was it 1967? 1974? I gave up trying . And I have all those records !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Trying to normalize the paranormal ?, May 26, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The book is more about the human side if a very strange phenomenon : very young children who seem to be carrying remnants of past lives and not somehow through DNA connecting them to ancestors but individuals far out if their orbit . Here we do not have a scientific study attempting to prove something strange just might be possible ....but a kind of guide to a very sensitive situation . One "past life" passing over , involving a young girl killed in a house fire in the 1800s is particularly engrossing , even as it just serves as background.

The Boss (Unrated)
The Boss (Unrated)
DVD ~ Melissa McCarthy

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny , unfunny , too vulgar for children although children are the real focus of the story ! Marginal three stars!, May 26, 2016
This review is from: The Boss (Unrated) (DVD)
Vastly successful entrepreneur suddenly finds herself down and out; incarcerated for 5 months for insider trading she finds herself homeless ..and her problems really begin right there . And for the viewer as well . No shelter , no employment, no freaking parole officer ? Would have made a cool character .the actor who played kristins sort of boyfriend should have played a parole officer whose head is left spinning by the hyper energetic Melissa .
The movie has liveliness to it , and the slapstick situations actually work .dialogue is clever and funny throughout albeit overloaded w swearing and sex blather - very off putting and disturbing as so much if the movie involves children .sign of the times, yeah yeah yeah .
Will the hardened self absorbed Melissa be softened , civilized by a loving family? See the movie on a Friday night .

3.0 out of 5 stars Placido!, May 21, 2016
This review is from: Songs of Love (Audio CD)
His off the charts chandelier shattering high notes abound in the 2 disc set but for this reviewer the quieter numbers really sell it .
The Spanish song also associated w Paul Simon is my favorite , in that regard. Also delighted w the Blue Moon medley tastefully arranged and performed . Younger than Springtime, also nice .
This set is not a 5, despite the extraordinary voice of the star and the production . I always find the opera meets pop deal somewhat depressing . Hard to explain why .

this book is exciting as any Mantle homer! not really. and this great author would agree!

all I can say is that if never heard of Roger Maris you'll love it and if you watched his 61st on TV or heard the narrative on Radio, you'll love it even more.

and can you believe, the data listings at the end are useful! for a sports book?! wowzer.

This review is from: My Life in Ruins (DVD)
3.5 stars . Up the last half hour it was a four . Excellent script and performances ; locale cinematography beautiful . Nia is sensational , as usual . Was that Fabio Lanzoni or Richard Lewis as the driver / romantic interest? Jk.

Richard Dreyfuss is excellent in his nuanced role as professional vacationer / horny bastard / divorcee. We do not know until far into the movie if he's for real. See the movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars unavailable officially-terrific "lost" sides, April 20, 2016
the nitty gritty, raw Richard, 1965-66, with some of his most fun recordings.

The live material surprisingly is not the real selling point, as we have some fantastic new (for the time) rock and blues! Check out the funky shoulda been a smash HOLY MACKERAL (45rpm prssing); I'M BACK (45rpm pressing); and a real gem, a previously unreleased for 1966 version of SLIPPIN' AND SLIDIN', much looser, much jazzier recut with a piano solo to send Elton Johns's big toe up into his boot! oh ma Soul!!!

Note: as we speak,.ACE RECORDS of England is sitting on all this material. Please email them and say My My My! release it!

Sings His Greatest Hits - Recorded Live
Sings His Greatest Hits - Recorded Live

4.0 out of 5 stars RICHARD RESCUES A TERRIBLE RECORDING, April 20, 2016
Very substandard pressing of sporadically substandard live versions of greatest hits and interesting new pieces. Recorded in late 1965 at the Domino in Georgia we have an album that could have been. But the exciting cuts are hacked to pieces and shockingly some intern (apparently) thought it would be real cool to overdub the sounds of shrieking teens to the live tape.

Having said all that, this album is worth having and playing. As cheesy as much f it is, it is STILL the great Little Richard. And bend an ear to the best "BRING IT ON HOME TO ME" available in the world.
