5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS IS & YOU'LL SEE WHY, May 22, 2005
This review is from: Loving You (DVD)
22 MAY 2005 ONCE YOU'VE SEEN THIS FLICK, IT'LL BE OBVIOUS TO THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER WHY ELVIS IS THE KING OF ROCK&ROLL!!! THE TUNES ARE JUMPIN', & THE HOUSE IS ROCKIN'!!! THIS FLICK SHOWS ELVIS' RISE TO THE TOP, & WHY!!! WHAT IT DOES NOT SHOW IS, THE THIEVERY THAT HAD STARTED IN THE BACK GROUND, BY COL TOM PARKER! WHICH OVER THE YEARS REACHED THE ASTRONOMICAL POINT, TO THE TUNE OF 50% OF ELVIS!!! A BUSINESS MAN, ELVIS WAS NOT! JAILHOUSE ROCK & KING CREOLE, WERE 2 OTHER FLICKS WITH GREAT ELVIS TUNES. G.I. BLUES & BLUE HAWAII, ALSO HAD SOME GOOD ELVIS TUNES. BUT MOST OF THE OTHER ELVIS FLICKS WERE JUST SIMPLY MONEY MAKERS THAT COL TOM PARKER SET UP. THE DOCUMENTARY "THAT'S THE WAY IT IS", SHOWS ELVIS' CREATIVITY, PROFESSIONALISM, & THE MUSICAL PERFECTIONIST THAT HE WAS. AS IN, WE'RE GONNA GET THIS RIGHT FOR THE AUDIENCE, NO MATTER HOW MANY TAKES WE HAVE TO DO!!! FROM THIS FLICK, "LOVING YOU", IN 1957, TO THE LIVE SHOW I SAW IN 1977,,,(i saw elvis on the tommy dorsey show feb 1955 & followed him every since),,, THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER THERE EVER WAS,, THAT'S ELVIS!!! (i just wished that the hangerson would have been smart enough to keep their gravy train on the tracks!!!) IN THIS FLICK, YOU'LL SEE ELVIS' MOTHER IN THE AUDIENCE. SHE IS SO EXCITED, & TAKE NOTE OF HOW SHE IS REALLY INTO HIS MUSIC!!! GREAT FLICK !!!

I'm sorry, but I can't read this review in all caps. It is considered shouting to use all caps, and it is too hard for the eye to take in that much text in caps.

In my opinion, it was Parker who led Elvis to his drug abuse which eventually killed him. Elvis was not happy making all those goofy commercial movies Parker kept setting him up to do, so he could make more money off Elvis. Elvis wanted to be an actor, like his idol, Marlon Brando, not to keep being a rock star. He was very good at real acting, as you can see in King Creole. That's what he should have done, but I guess he couldn't stand up to Parker. That's a real shame.
