Eddie and the Cruisers came out in 1983 and did not do well in the box office but once released into video, it became a lion! It was just a "cool" premise and people fell in love with the lost Eddie. The music on this is fantastic, at least to lots of us. Michael Pare` embodies the songs he sings. Even knowing that it was John Cafferty singing, the voice was strangely similar to Pare`s natural speaking voice. At any other time, Cafferty doesn't sound like this. So the movie was special in several ways and people loved it. Enough so that in 1989, Eddie and the Cruisers 2 was released with more of Cafferty's music. I feel this was even better than number one. You also see a lot more of Pare` who I think absolutely "made" the role. The movie has a lot of fire in it and great music along with subtle humor. They have been and always will be high on my list of favorite movies to re-watch. You do need, however, to believe in the old times and love rock and roll to enjoy them.

I've watched these movies at least 20 times over the years and never get tired of watching them. Eddie and the Cruisers takes you to a period in time when music was everything. These were the days when you rushed to the music store to get the newest 45 rpm record that came out that week.
You'd get together with your buddies and grab your guitars and figure out what the chords were that the band was playing and you practiced til you got it down.

This was the age of innocense, rock and roll at it's peak. If you lived through this era, (even if you didn't) these movies will take you on a magnificent journey in time and let you experience what it was like to be in a rock band. If you wern't in a band, you knew someone who was and you lived and breathed the music.

John Cafferty has created a musical gem here and Michael Pare' does an excellent job portraying Eddie Wilson.

The music is what makes this movie go as it should be with one of the best rock and roll movies of all time. A must have for any baby boomer and something for today's youth to watch and get a history lesson as to what music really means. Not some mp3 crap that you download and listen to for a week and discard.

Like Eddie says in the movie "I want to wrap ourselves up in our music and that it will live on forever".

Well we already know eddie 1 & 2 are underated by the critics and we love these two movies. That being said , we waited for this american release for a long time and it is disappointing, the audio (others dont agree) but sounds great on my system . The video is sharp & bright on both. however the 2 movies are on a single flipper disc and no insert inside of any kind. (hence the low price) but the most dissappointing thing is played side by side with the canadian release of eddie lives 2, its apparant you dont get to see more of the picture , the widescreen screen version actually shows less on top & bottom and the sides are same, so in my opion this was a cheap release and not what the eddie fans have been waiting for :(

The Film Eddie and the Cruisers was a throw back to bands of the fifties. It was the story of a band, however there was also a mystery regarding Eddie disappearance. It was a small film that ran in theaters and vanished without a trace. It was an art house film that was done well, but when it was released in the movie theaters got NO audience

The reason this film got a sequel was due to pay cable. This movie built up a cult following when in was on cable movie TV (HBO,SHOWTIME,etc). Most wanted the answers the first film left unresolved questions. You must understand, this is before cable had shows like Dexter, Six feet Under, The Tutors and others (including a MOB show which is NOT my favorite)

The sequel which was not as good as the first (there are never many where the sequel is better than the original). However it did rap up the storylines left unfinished by the first film

These two films are a cult classic. The talented Micheal Pare stars in both films as Eddie Wilson. He showcases the mind of a man who loves the music...its sounds, its feeling. He is brash in the film film. By the sequel, he is wiser, smarter and older. The second he is haunted by the demons of the past

If you are seeking great filmmaking, dont get this. BUT if you seek a story which will interest you, this double feature is a sure bet for an evening entertainment. and that in my book is worth five stars

I couldn't wait to get this dvd, as I loved the movie. Unfortunately, the sound comes and goes during the first movie and is impossible to watch. I've tried it on several machines (dvd player, computer and laptop) and it continues to happen with each machine. I was extremely disappointed!

Great collection. however the audio transfer lacks bottom end (Bass) especially in the music. Picture transfer is great.
