I've never written a review on a movie before, but after watching Sidemen: Long Road to Glory I couldn't stop. I love music, and the music in this movie is beautiful. The movie is amazing, and I recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it. I really hope that there will be more films like this one, and that the music will continue to be produced. I hope that everyone enjoys this movie, and I hope that it gets as many votes as it did!

A truly wonderful movie. A very well put together documentary. There is a wealth of knowledge and insight in this film. There is an excellent mixture of interviews with performers, promoters, critics, musicians, and other musical professionals. The story is told in chronological order, each of the stories being a short story in themselves. I can not recommend this film enough. It is a must see for any music fan, musician, promoter, or anyone interested in music.

I am a big fan of the History channel and most of the documentaries they have produced. I was looking for a good documentary on the Revolutionary War and the revolutionary war and stumbled upon this documentary. I am a huge fan of Civil War history and the film was really good. I have a question for anyone who liked the film. Why did you guys turn down the movie? This movie is a must watch for any History teacher or film maker. I will be taking my students to see this movie and will be taking my students as well. I hope you enjoy this great documentary. I enjoyed it very much and would love to see more from the History channel. I look forward to seeing more from the History channel.

I was never a fan of Johnny Cash, but now I'm a fan of him. His movies are well done and quite realistic. With this film, he really came back into the spotlight of being a major star and a singer. I have to say that his new music is great. I would recommend this movie to anyone, especially to those who have never listened to Cash's music. I have seen it twice in theaters and it's hard to keep my eyes off of it. It's a well made film, with some great performances. It's a film that will keep you thinking and smiling. I would highly recommend this film. It's a must see, especially for all the Cash fans.

This documentary is a must-see for all people who love the band and their fans. I saw this film as part of the amazing PEARL HARBOR FILM FESTIVAL in the summer of 2012. The entire audience loved the film. I saw the film with a group of friends who were all huge fans of Pearl Jam. They loved the film. When they saw this film, they asked us to "love" the film. I did. There is no doubt in my mind that this film will make anyone who loves Pearl Jam, Pearl Jam music, and the people who are in it really appreciate what the band has to offer. They are amazing people, and the best band ever. I highly recommend this film.

The saddest part of this movie was not knowing how it would end. When the music started I had to know how it would end. The music was the only thing that kept me watching this movie, and the sad part is that there are so many more songs to come. I don't know how this will end, but I am sure it will end in a good way. It is sad that they all died for nothing. We need to find ways to honor those who have left us. I will be watching this movie again. I never get sick of this movie, and I will be buying it on DVD. I will be telling everyone about this movie. I am so glad that I watched this movie. It is really amazing.

After I saw the documentary about this film, I wanted to see it again. And it was worth it. The interviews with the legendary and influential actors, the technical crews, and the writers were all extremely informative. The documentary also left me with a lot of questions that I never knew about this movie. Like why did they go back to the old scripts? What did they think of it? And most importantly, what was the deal with the 3-day shooting schedule? I think that these questions are still unanswered, but I was able to find out the answers for myself after watching this film. You won't be disappointed if you are interested in this movie.

This documentary is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the Black Panthers and the music that shaped their life. This documentary will make you feel like a part of it as it takes you through the stories of several key Black Panthers. It goes deep into the movement's history and looks at how it was created, developed and ultimately defeated by the state. You will be left with a feeling of pride for the Black Panther Party and the Black Power movement. The documentary is definitely a must see for anyone interested in Black Power and the history of the Black Panther Party. The music is very well done and the documentary has a great mix of interviews and archive footage.

This documentary is a wonderful look at how a small group of Americans from a diverse cultural background managed to get their music onto the radio in the 1950's and 1960's. While the music is obviously important to them, it is the way they managed to get their music heard that really sets this film apart. It is a powerful, inspiring, and touching story about how the music of this group helped shape American popular culture in the 50's and 60's. I think that any music lover or music aficionado should see this film. It is a perfect blend of interviews, music videos, and documentary footage. It is one of those documentaries that is so powerful that it will stay with you long after you leave the theater. One of the best films of 2013.

From start to finish, I enjoyed this film. I thoroughly enjoyed the interviews, the political information, and the love of the game. The fight scenes were entertaining. I was impressed with the design of the weapons and the outfits. The film is a great example of how to get the true essence of a sport into the minds of the viewers. The film takes a lot of its information from the popular sport of Ultimate Frisbee, which is a sport that is often manipulated by the media. The film gives the viewer a chance to learn about Ultimate Frisbee, and to appreciate it as an athletic event, not as a sport. I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys sports. It will make you want to go to the game!

If you are a rock fan you will love this film. It is hard to find a movie that gets me to tears. The music is incredible and so is the acting. The actors are doing a great job of not telling the story but giving us the feelings the movie brings. It is very well done. I highly recommend it to any music fan who is tired of the music industry that has nothing to say. You have to watch it and then listen to it. You will want to buy the soundtrack. I will watch it again.

I have been an admirer of Michael Moore since he started a political career as a writer/producer. As I learned, this guy is one of the smartest people around. Here he does a wonderful job of showing the Hollywood political machine and its lack of accountability. The film is one of the best I've seen. It was based on a story by John Pilger and the documentary is a much more powerful work than the movie. This is what I call a comprehensive film. It is a must see for anyone who cares about the Constitution and American democracy. I would recommend this film to anyone who has ever tried to do something as noble as winning a election or running for public office. This film will make you think twice about taking the same route for any kind of public office.

After reading the reviews for "The Sidemen" I was extremely excited about seeing this film. The reviews were good, but I was skeptical. I knew it wasn't going to be the same Sidemen that had made the film such a success. This Sidemen is a very different, but still enjoyable, documentary about the original Sidemen. I was completely surprised. The film was very entertaining, not too long, and not to slow. It also had some great interviews with some of the original Sidemen. The Sidemen are now a very successful band. They are now back on tour, and this documentary is the story of how they came to be. It is very interesting, and it really showed what a band like Sidemen can be. I highly recommend this documentary. 10/10

I am a huge fan of the 1970s rock & roll scene. I have been a long time fan of the band New Edition. I always admired their music. It was really interesting to me to see what was going on in their personal lives. I really liked seeing how they dealt with their drug addiction. It was really great seeing the first ever live performance of "The Ultimate Warrior" by New Edition. I have always admired the music that they were making. This documentary was very interesting and it was very good. I would definitely recommend it. It is a must-see documentary.

I can't believe I was one of the few people who walked out of this documentary, it was incredible. It is a documentary that is not intended for a particular audience, but for people who know a little about the old days of boxing. It is well researched and also very well written. It is very well done. It is a must see for anyone who wants to know a little more about the old days of boxing. Also it is a documentary that can teach people how to do a lot of things for themselves. I saw this documentary at the National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. This is a must see for any boxing fan.

The way that the music of this movie was recorded is one of the greatest examples of how music can be used to effect change in society. People have been very reluctant to hear this song, and the only way to hear it is through the ears of a human being. This documentary is one of the greatest I have ever seen, and should be put on a standard DVD. It's a must-see for anyone who wants to know how music can be used to effect change in society. A very important movie that I have seen many times.

I'm not a very big fan of Bob Dylan but I'm glad I finally found this film on Amazon. This is the documentary film I've been looking for. The great thing about this is that it's very honest and does a good job of getting across the message of the film. It's very well shot and it shows the kind of work that goes into making a documentary film. There is no Hollywood feel to it. I felt like I was watching a documentary. The only thing that might be missing is the songs. The songs are quite amazing and the documentary does a great job of showing the emotion of the songs and making you feel like you were there. I would definitely recommend this to anybody. I would love to see more documentaries like this one. It's one of those documentaries that I could watch over and over again and I never get tired of it.

It is very hard to get into the history of Vietnam. So much is glossed over and people just take it for granted. However, the documentary I watched, "Sidemen: Long Road to Glory" is an incredible achievement. The film documents the final year of the Vietnam war, and the guys who were there. It does not take sides, it does not glorify any one side or any one man, but it just brings the audience a lot of information that is otherwise not available. The film tells the story of a bunch of guys who were there, and the story that these guys gave us, about how the war went down. It does not tell us about the people that were fighting the war, but it does give us a good idea of what the war was like. There is not a lot of combat footage, but it is the best footage that we have. It shows us how the troops lived, and it shows us how they fought. There is a lot of war footage, and a lot of "behind the scenes" footage that is informative as well. The film tells us that the war was difficult on both sides, and that the people who were fighting were not all honorable. It is not a glorification of the war, but rather a documentary about the guys who were there. I would recommend this documentary to anyone. It is an amazing movie that should not be missed.

A great documentary.I was very surprised and very impressed by the quality of the film. I have seen a lot of documentaries but never have I been so entertained and moved by a documentary as I was during this one. It was so well put together and I have never been so moved by a documentary. It shows the lives of the various people involved in the VHS and DVD release of the film. It also tells the story of the people who participated in the making of the film and how they felt about it. This was a very enjoyable documentary and I highly recommend it.

I was very surprised by this documentary, since I thought it was going to be about Michael Moore's "Bowling for Columbine". But I was very wrong. It was just about his time in Iraq and Iraq itself, and how people were treated there. Michael Moore is such a great filmmaker, and he is able to put the story together in a way that most people wouldn't see. He has a very good sense of humor, and he really loves telling stories. He also makes a point that it's important to see what the people who are in Iraq are actually going through. I really liked his point about how people in Iraq have a kind of humor about it, and that makes it all the more horrifying. Also, I liked the fact that he talked to the people who worked with him. Michael Moore is not a big movie star, but he is an important documentary maker, and he made a very good documentary.

Scott photo

I'm a member of the band and I was born in the same year as some of the guys and I loved them as much as the next person. This documentary is a very well done piece. Some of the songs they have performed live, particularly the one about their struggle with the drug addiction, are very moving. I hope this movie gets seen and the DVD release gets it on.

We are all tired of Hollywood, most of the time. When this movie was first released, I thought, "I know the old guys from Hollywood.I have heard their stories". But now, a couple of years later, I am finding out more about the industry. And the things that I was not aware of. This movie makes you understand that Hollywood is the most important source of influence for all kinds of human rights abuses in the world today. I have never been so amazed by the human rights violations that the world has ever seen. The most disturbing thing, however, is the way the US is going to control all of its territories and the world in the future. But this movie will not let you forget that. It will make you think about it, even if you will not have anything to do with politics or Hollywood. Just watch this movie, and you will see what you have been missing in Hollywood. It will make you realize that Hollywood is not only Hollywood. There is a lot of good movies in Hollywood. And it is a shame that Hollywood has been reduced to a propaganda machine, in order to make money. This movie will leave you with a lot of questions. I have no doubt that this movie will win a lot of awards. It will make you think that you have been missing out on a lot of great movies.

The music video for a group that was better than the band itself. Yes, it's the least satisfying band ever to be made in the history of the medium, but the music and the story makes up for it. It's like watching a live concert that only you could make. I really like seeing the songs, especially "The Stone That Never Fades". I'm not a big fan of the band, but I do like them, and they've made a lot of music, and that's what makes it all worthwhile. You're not going to find any of the original members, and they were actually pretty good too. But, all in all, this is the best documentary I've seen in a long time. I give it a 10/10.

Wayne photo

For me, this is the best documentary of the year. It makes you realize how much work goes into making a movie and how much money is spent to make a movie. It's definitely not for the faint of heart or the easily offended. But if you have a love for the movies, it's definitely worth watching.

I don't know where to start. As a big fan of the Rock, I am extremely happy to have discovered this documentary. It is an amazing, enlightening and inspiring journey. I found it to be a "must see" for all who love rock and roll. I will always be a huge Rock fan and this documentary is just a beautiful piece of art that you can see and feel. It is both inspiring and inspiring to learn that we are all surrounded by a legend that is Mickey. Mickey has a way of reaching down to us and he has a way of bringing out the best in us. I hope that someday we can all learn from this and show the world how much we love and appreciate the music that we love. Go see it now!

I saw this at a screening in Denver in 2006. I'm not sure I can remember more than a few lines of dialogue, but I do remember that it was like no other documentary I had ever seen. It was "almost" an hour and a half of "one-liners", "laugh-out-loud" moments and lots of personal stories about some of the "stars" of the time. It is a well-rounded biography that is at once inspiring and deeply moving. I can't recommend this film highly enough. I will be putting it on my DVD collection. It is definitely worth watching.

I can't believe that this movie is not on the IMDb top 250. I am a huge fan of the band, and have been for quite some time. I've watched their video with my friends and they love it as well. I just want to say that I saw this movie and have to say that it is not only one of the best documentaries about the band, but also one of the best documentaries about the music industry. This movie is just that. Great!

This is a very important documentary that shows the true story of the actual events and the people involved in the massacre. The movie is very well done and is worth seeing. The movie is very well put together and the way it is put together is very good. There is a lot of information on the massacre. It shows the time of the massacre and it shows the people who were there and what happened. The movie does not show the real events of the massacre but it shows what happened, what the people thought, and what they thought would happen. The movie is very good and well put together.

I was first introduced to David Ashe by his books. I was amazed at the depth and complexity of his characterizations of the soldiers and their families. I went to see him play some of my favorite books with his characters and was truly touched by his portrayal of each of them. After seeing this movie, I can say with confidence that this is one of his best roles. Ashe's dramatic delivery and his talent as a storyteller shine in this film. The documentary is superb and the editing is exceptional. The film is truly a masterpiece.

I can't think of a single negative thing I have to say about this movie. It is an amazing documentary and a fantastic tribute to the music of Jimi Hendrix. It is incredible to watch how the original drummer of Jimi Hendrix had to be killed in his sleep one night after his group was playing in a nightclub. It is also amazing to see how the guitarists of Jimi Hendrix had to play with him on the road, while he was suffering from a major stroke. You will learn the history of Jimi Hendrix, and you will see how he had to live his life in a way that he wanted, while other people tried to destroy him. I really believe that this movie is one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen, and if you don't like it, you are not really a human being. You can't really appreciate this movie if you don't have a love for Jimi Hendrix, or if you don't have a love for music.

This is a documentary about the rise of the Vietnam war. This is an incredible film, and it has a lot to offer to people who are not familiar with the history of the Vietnam war. The films director is David McCallum, and his documentary was inspired by interviews with the men who went to Vietnam. The film was shot in both Vietnam and the United States, and it shows the brutality of the war. The men who go to Vietnam do not want to fight. They are volunteers, and they were just doing what they thought was best for their country. They see their comrades killed by their own government. This is an amazing film, and I highly recommend it.

This documentary gives an interesting insight into the bands history. One thing that struck me was how long the band has been around, even though the members have gone on to different careers. Even though they have gone through a lot of ups and downs in their careers, they still have a strong and dedicated following. The documentary also gives an insight into the band members current lives. The band members are all very open about the band and the things they do in the band, although some of the band members are not very forthcoming about their personal lives. I think that the documentary is a great way to understand the band and to understand the band's history. It also gives a look into the lifestyle of the band members, and the band's history. In my opinion, this documentary is worth seeing.

Patricia photo

A must see for any 'Hollywood' fan! I was lucky enough to see this film at the Durham Film Festival in North Carolina. I was impressed by the many people who attended the film. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has an interest in the past. It is a must see for any film buff.

I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to see this at the Sundance Film Festival. It was a huge success, and I feel that it deserves to be recognized for its cinematic contribution to the film industry. I was not familiar with the director, but I was very impressed with the work of all the actors in this film. The voice over narration is very well done. The music is rich, and the cinematography is incredible. I was impressed with the use of color and light in this film. The film will definitely have a following on film festivals around the world. I highly recommend this film. I rate this film a 10/10.

This is a documentary about the end of the United States of America, and how it has been portrayed in films, books, and even music. It was a bad time for the country and the world, but the movie says what you would never think, and you will never see again in the news. This is a very important movie. The man who shot it has a message that needs to be heard. If you see this movie, you will be moved and have a lot of questions. It's not a movie for everyone, but I'm glad I saw it.

I had the privilege of seeing the final performance of Sidemen: Long Road to Glory at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. This is a magnificent documentary about the life and work of Sidemen. There is a lot of incredible footage, with the help of a number of Sidemen family members, friends and co-workers, as well as actor Johnny Depp, who provides commentary on the making of the film. There are also a number of interviews with people who were involved in the production of the film. I was especially pleased to see who weaved a fantastic documentary with the work of the real people. I really wish that I could say that I know more about Sidemen than the director, but I don't. Sidemen was a great film and I look forward to seeing the movie version. I have also read a number of the other reviews, and I am amazed at the negative reaction. I have not seen a film this amazing since the classic movie The Big Chill, and I know that many have criticized it for being too long. I believe that the length of the film is meant to be that of a feature film, not a short. I'm afraid that a number of people have missed the point. The film is meant to be about the film, not about the film itself. We all know that Sidemen is a great film. It is a great story, and I think that the director and the people who worked on the film have done a wonderful job. This is a wonderful film that I look forward to seeing again. Sidemen: Long Road to Glory is a great film, and it is one of the best I have seen in a long time.

This is my favorite documentary. It is an inspiring story of a young man named Ray Lewis who decided that his life wasn't worth living. He took off his uniform and decided to start a boxing career in his garage. He had a small budget but he started boxing in a garage and made it big. His amazing career started when he was just 16 years old. He won the World Heavyweight Championship and became the youngest ever world champion. He was an inspiration to everyone. His story is inspiring. It shows us the life of a man who fought to the death to save his family and his home. He never gave up and he never gave up on himself. This is a great documentary and a must see. It is a must see for every man.

I've never been to any foreign country but I feel I know enough about music and music history to appreciate this documentary. I have never read a book about music but I feel I know enough about music history to appreciate this documentary. This film is a very important film to be aware of. The movie covers a lot of the different music styles of the world and makes a very clear statement that a lot of the music that is around today is totally outdated. It's really great to hear that there are still a lot of musicians in the world that are still making music that people love. I think that this film is very important because it shows that music is not only a cultural thing, but also a historical thing. This is a film that will be very hard to miss because it is truly a documentary about the history of music. Music history is something that is very important to see, and I believe that this film is a must-see for everyone.

I watched the documentary about Sidemen and I was very impressed. The way that it is put together, the way the different stories are told, the soundtrack, the footage. You can't say enough about this movie. The stories are amazing. I am a music fan, but it was also amazing to hear people's stories and see the different aspects of it. I am a big fan of classical music and jazz, so it was nice to hear a different perspective on that. I would recommend this movie to anyone, but especially to classical music fans. The music is amazing, and the documentary is very informative. 10/10

I saw this film last night. I thought it was great! I had the opportunity to meet and interview some of the filmmakers. The interview with the director and producer of the film was fascinating. They discussed the filming, the fans, the music, the music video, the films, etc. They also discussed the development of the film and how they thought the film would end up. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys documentary films. The interviews with the directors, the production company, the musicians, the music video makers, the fans and the music fans, were very interesting. I highly recommend this film.

This documentary is extremely interesting and insightful, and provides an insight into the lives of the members of the World Wide Bandits, an outlaw gang in the 1930s and 1940s. The bandit members were forced to walk across the country in search of a job, and their journey to America was a long one, often involving the armed robbery of stores and the murder of members of their own tribe. The story of the World Wide Bandits is fascinating and makes for a fascinating documentary. It is a very informative film, that tells a story that I don't think I've heard about before. The movie was very well produced, and the quality of the footage was very high. The narration throughout the movie is very interesting and adds to the movie. It's worth seeing if you are interested in World War II, outlaw gangs, or the 1930s and 1940s. This is a very well done documentary.

I watched this documentary as a kid, and I've watched it again and again, because it is so powerful. I was surprised how well the director did in portraying the world of cocaine. It is all so very funny, and I just love the music. The main character, Ricky, is a singer who is now homeless. I have no idea why he was such a legend, because he does not have a story. This documentary tells the story of Ricky and his bandmates, and their lives. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn about the drug trade, or just to see a funny documentary.

A MUST SEE for anyone who likes music and has an interest in history. The music and the performances are so well done and inspiring, that it makes the movie seem almost documentary-like. If you have the opportunity to see it, I highly recommend it. The music is amazing, the stories of the band and the band members are inspiring. Even if you aren't a musician, you will learn so much about the history of rock n roll and the people who played it. It is a MUST SEE. You won't regret it.

I'm going to start off by saying that this documentary is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is also one of the best documentaries I have ever seen in the history of documentaries. I was fortunate enough to see this documentary on the PBS network in the middle of winter, and it was a night where I didn't have a lot of energy to work out my thoughts. I had to watch it and it was hard to watch. I've watched the film in its entirety, and I'm glad I have. I have to admit that it was very hard to watch. There were so many things I wanted to say, but I couldn't. I was so emotional about the things that I wanted to say, but I couldn't. It was a struggle. I thought the film would be about all the things that happened to all these people, but it wasn't. It was a documentary about a lot of other things, and I think that was what made it more interesting. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the Vietnam war, or just want to see a documentary about a lot of different things. It's a must see.
