Pearl Jam Twenty (2011)
« on: May 24, 2012, 11:51:59 pm »

Pearl Jam Twenty is written and directed by Cameron Crowe, the same genius that did Almost Famous. If you are a fan of that movie or just a fan of Rock music, you will definitely enjoy this documentary on Pearl Jam. The name of the movie is self explanatory in that PJ20 covers the birth, good times and bad times of the band in its 20 year existence. There are so many never before seen footage in the film that it had me thinking it was created just for the movie itself. But then you realize how old some of the stuff is and you marvel how someone had the foresight to video tape or film once in a lifetime moments.

So, do you have to be a Pearl Jam fan to enjoy this doc? Absolutely not. If you want to see what its like to walk in the shoes of a superband like PJ and watch them take on Ticketmaster, deal with the tragedy of Roskilde and everything else in between, you will be entralled at what unfolds on the screen. Even though the movie is about Pearl Jam, it spreads the wealth around to bands like Soundgarden, Nirvana and Alice In Chains. Listening to Chris Cornell talk about those eariy Seattle years is pretty damn cool.

I highly recommend this a must-own DVD. A definite Buy,

I forgot to mention in my review about Eddie Vedder talking about PB. That gave me goosebumps and the footage of the band hanging outside The Bacchanal was damn cool to see.
