5-0 out of 5 stars Citizen Who? ..Thrashin..greatest movie ever.
OKay. this is a totally biased review, Thrashin has been my favorite movie since i was a young lad, this movie encompasses all that is/was skateboarding in the 1980's. Sure, the acting is cheesy at times, but that gives the film charm, there is punk rock band named after the villians in this movie called "Hook and the Daggers" that eveyone should check out. skateboarding, punk rock, red hot chili peppers, a really terrible love scene, this movie has it ALL!! buy the movie already. DVD bonus stuff is cool too with interview w/ Robert Russler (Hook)

5-0 out of 5 stars great movie and hotties all the way!
i love this movie and saw it on tape and was so glad it was released to dvd!
the story goes like this: corey webster wants to become a big skater and skate for smash skateboards in the valley while he stays with his friend tyler (paul from the lost boys a year earlier!)the best looking thing in the movie!
while in the valley for hte summer, corey meets chrissy, the leader of the daggers little sister and he falls in love.
so now corey has to watch out for the daggers in order to stay in the skateboarding buis, with his buds the ramp locals and get with chrissy.
its totally worth 10 bucks at bestbuy!
go for it, if not for the movie itself than only to stare at gorgeous brooke mccarter (paul from the lost boys) as tyler in ths film.

This movie has good skate scenes, and the commentary track is hilarious. Filled with good info and drug and fart jokes

5-0 out of 5 stars Bab's stepson
Corey webster leaves home with 35 bucks and skates his way to LA or venice beach to race in the LA downhill. along the way he falls for dorky Kristi whose brother is the leader of the evil DAGGERS. They have rank OJ in the frig and will stop at nothing to detroy the dream of Corey Webster turning pro.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dopest movie ever!!!
Dude, this movie rocks!!! I mean, It's totally lame, but it's a must have for skaters (most because of the bonus dvd).
Well, everybody wrote about the movie, but it's not the main reason to have it. It's interesting cuz of the skate culture approach of the 80's. That was pretty rad! And thats something you should care to watch. Not the movie itself!!! ... Read more

Whether you're indulging nostalgia or experiencing the Monkees for the first time, Our Favorite Episodes--chosen by Davey Jones, Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith--is a curious time capsule. Even for veteran Monkeephiles, it's obvious that the TV series, totaling 58 episodes from 1966 to 1968, hasn't aged very gracefully. It's fun as a pop-cultural artifact, and original fans will fondly recall the eagerness with which each week's episode was anticipated. Looking back, however, the shows are marginally amusing, and their improvisational, low-budget strategy tends to limit their lasting appeal. For die-hard fans it won't matter a bit; any chance to own and archive the Monkee phenomenon (with brief latter-day interviews included) is going to be welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed.

Because Jones's favorite episode was actually the Emmy-winning "Royal Flush," the inclusion of "Hitting the High Seas" is a conspicuous blunder, but it's compensated by Peter's "Monkee vs. Machine." Directed by series producer (and then-budding filmmaker) Bob Rafelson, and featuring comedian Stan Freberg as a stodgy toy-company executive, this early episode was a first-season highlight. Mickey selected (and directed) the series finale, "Mijacogeo (The Frodis Caper)," which is noteworthy for a filmed performance of Tim Buckley singing a rare acoustic version of "Siren Song" (further proof that the Monkees were hipper than their TV personas). Mike's favorite "Fairy Tale" is a wild romp indeed, with Nesmith in drag (as a fairy princess), sounding shockingly like Cher from her later TV variety show. They're semi-inspired at best, but these vintage episodes still capture the lunacy that accompanied the meteoric success of the "Pre-Fab Four." --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Their Favorite Episodes
You can't really disagree with someone else's favorite episodes, they are THEIR favorites. For the most part, I found myself agreeing with the Monkees. While I think Mike's and Micky's pick are the standouts, I also enjoyed Peter's MONKEES vs. MACHINES.

I do wish Rhino would release a Monkees Holiday DVD with the two Halloween episodes and the Christmas installment featuring Butuch Patrck.

4-0 out of 5 stars Monkees discuss their shows
A nice concept by Rhino, having the four Monkees select and discuss their favorite episodes. The dvd shows the episodes in their entirity with bonus features including commercials featuring the Monkees and interviews with the band. Three of the four episodes are excellent, but the Davy Jones entry (Out to Sea) is a little weak. Since no other Monkees TV episodes are currently available on dvd, this disc is a must for any Monkees fan who wants to see the shows on a digital format. It also makes for a nice introduction to the group's shows for the new or casual fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good DVD "Stand In"
This disc was Rhino's first attempt to package Monkee episodes in the then-new DVD format. Clips of each of the Monkees from their 1997 documentary are used to introduce their favorite episodes.

It has already been noted that the episode that Davy mentions is really "Royal Flush" ("Hitting the High Seas" is shown instead as his favorite). "Royal Flush" would have been a better choice because it would've balanced the DVD better to have 2 episodes from the first season and 2 from the second, instead of having 3 from the second and only 1 from the first.

The film quality was a bit of a disappointment, especially during parts of "Fairy Tale". The quality is much better on Rhino's second Monkee DVD (Monkees Volume 1 & 2) although there are some good moments on this disc. Some of the episodes have the original end credits with Kellogg's products. It's fun on both discs to pause the picture and use the "step" button on your DVD remote to discover things that have never been noticed before on VHS copies.

The chapter breaks are much better than on Rhino's second Monkee DVD and there are actually breaks for all of the songs in each episode; even the Kellogg's commercial shown during Mijacogeo has a chapter break.

Since the DVD format was still young when Rhino released this, it has no extras, not even closed-captioning. It's too bad that the Monkees couldn't have recorded audio commentary in addition to introducing the episodes. A photo gallery and some more Kellogg's commercials wouldn't been a nice extra also.

Fans desparate for any Monkee episodes on DVD will want to pick this up but keep in mind that the VHS edition is packaged better in a retro-style metal Monkee lunchbox with a mini-ceral box and puzzle. This DVD will have to do as a "stand in" until Rhino gets around to issuing the entire series on DVD.

2-0 out of 5 stars Davy is little, but PETTY?!!
First off, I'm a 1st-gen fan (yes, I'm very old) and since this DVD has been well-covered by other reviewers, I wanted to use this space to explain Davy's choice of "Hitting The High Seas".

When this DVD was being produced, Davy was in the center of a protracted and one-sided snit with Michael Nesmith... seems the mystery surrounding Mike had drawn all the attention away from Davy, the self-professed heart-throb of the group, and Davy is not one who relinquishes attention easily. Its widely known that he chose this particular episode as his "fave" because Mike doesn't appear in it for more than 3 minutes! ... Read more

When viewed through the rose-colored glasses of happy nostalgia, thesefour well-chosen episodes of The Monkees TV series (1966-68) provide 100 minutes of shameless anarchy, courtesy of Mike, Davey, Mickey, and Peter. The show--and the Monkees themselves--were conspicuous attempts to capitalize on the Beatles (by copping their Help! and A Hard Day's Night formula of pop music and comedy), but these episodes demonstrate the show's emerging identity, from its original pilot (filmed a full year before its November 1966 broadcast) to the casual lunacy of two above-average episodes ("The Picture Frame" and "Hillbilly Honeymoon") from the series' second season.

The pilot (which features cowriter and series developer Paul Mazursky as a TV reporter) shows the Monkees in embryonic form; their hair's much shorter, and you can even spot a Beatles poster in their Monkee-pad. But it wasn't long before the group's distinct personalities emerged (Davey was always molded as the heartthrob), and by the time "The Picture Frame" aired on September 18, 1966, the show's combination of silly slapstick, groan-worthy punch lines, and catchy pop tunes had become a ratings smash. (Indeed, that episode's featured song, "Pleasant Valley Sunday," had recently topped the Billboard pop chart.) And while "Alias Mickey Dolenz" is clearly a Mickey showcase (in which he aids police by doubling as a wanted killer), it also features two songs ("Mary, Mary" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love") that established Mike Nesmith as a talented songwriter. All in all, these four episodes neatly summarize what the Monkees were--a marketing ploy that took flight as a legitimate pop-cultural phenomenon. --Jeff Shannon ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Monkees were the best and still are...........
I always loved watching there shows when I was growing up. And I still do. My two nieces love watching it too. And I know my children will too someday. There show was the first rock and roll show ever shown that played rock music. They were the first mtv. That's Classic......

4-0 out of 5 stars The Debut, The Frame, The Alias, & The Shotgun Wedding
Four of the strongest episodes of The Monkees series are on display on this two-disc set covering much of the show's evolution.

Here Come The Monkees - the debut episode filmed in November 1965, the episode telegraphs that this series will not be like anything on TV to that point in its brilliant prologue as Paul Mazursky conducts man on the street interviews and elicits from a doctor a vow to break up any outburst of violence - which goes out the window when Davy appears, being beaten senseless by Micky, Mike, and Peter.

The episode then proceeds into its main plot - The Monkees are hired for the sweet-sixteen party of Vanessa Russell, a gig that nearly gets the boys canned when Vanessa and Davy's dating ruins her history studies. A corporate board meeting ensues and the boys work out a plan. When Vanessa aces her makeup exam as a result, her teacher tries to persuade Vanessa's father to relent, but initially he won't, until shamed into doing so by his distraught daughter.

Following the madcap events of the episode - highlighted by both versions of "I Wanna Be Free" and the party rocker "Let's Dance On" - the episode closes with the October 1965 screen tests of Davy and Mike being interviewed by off-camera Bob Rafelson - scren tests that reveal Davy's love affair with horses and being a jockey, and also Mike's love of music and his anxiety to get this series.

The Picture Frame - The most overtly slapstick episode of the series, The Monkees are tricked into robbing a bank by a phony movie director. Bank cameras film the incident - which Micky, Mike, and Davy think is just rushes from the movie - and interrogation by the sergeant who manages to out-Friday Joe Friday ensues, highlighted by the boys' comedic turns - such as wehn they agree to spill the beans, and use the empty cans as phones, and when Mike catches the overdue book thrown at them.

Trial then ensues, and Micky, Mike, and Davy make a shambles of the results, complete with bribery of the judge, hilarious cross-examination by Micky, hotdogs, and Mike's Wile E. Coyote gag on the prosecutor. All the while Peter is snooping around the studio and finds the evidence that will clear the others - but he must outrun the real crooks amid the snarling strains of "Pleasant Valley Sunday." When Peter succeeds in getting the boys acquitted, they celebrate with the video of Micky's London mod scene anthem "Randy Scouse Git."

Alias Micky Dolenz - Members of the gang of Baby Face Morales mistake Micky for their jailed boss, and two attempts on Micky's life - the second, a drive-by machine-gunning, leads to the show's funniest speed-up photography shot - force him to impersonate the jailed malfeant and infiltrate the gang. A bar brawl establishes Micky's bona fides with the gang, but the worst ensues when the gang force Micky into helping them spring the loot they've hidden, and Mike and Peter must go along as "specialists" - until the real Baby Face Morales escapes and appears.

Hillbilly Honeymoon aka Double Barreled Shoutgun Wedding - The first episode to feature Micky's second-season afro hairdo, it finds the boys caught in the middle of a feud between two hillbilly families, which snares Davy when the sweet young thing of one of the families seduces him and he is kidnapped - leading the show's funniest wordplay: the girl's father snarls, "All right, say it! 'Will you marry me?'" Davy replies, "Will you marry me?" and Mike deadpans about how millions of chicks (Dixie and otherwise) are madly in love with Davy.

5-0 out of 5 stars 100 MINUTES OF GREAT MONKEE BUSINESS!
If you grew up when I did (during the 1960s), and you're into Monkees (like I was and still am), and you're into DVD (like I am), then I think you'll like this DVD. It doesn't feature the best four episodes of the TV series (in my judgement), but the episodes are an excellent representation of the series. I think that Rhino Records and Video should be congratulated for their contribution to "Monkee madness." I hope they market all the Monkees TV episodes on DVD--soon!

4-0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the episodes, not for the extras.
The actual episodes on this DVD look terrific! I've seen episodes such as "Here Come the Monkees" dozens of times through out the years and I saw many things in the background on the DVD that I've never noticed before. I've watched the VHS copies of Monkee tapes put out by Rhino and even though I thought those episodes looked good, they look even better on DVD.

The extras were a little disappointing. There are some brief cast bios and a short band history but I thought it was rather odd that Micky Dolenz's name was spelled wrong (with an E) and even the title of one of their songs was listed incorrectly. Rhino has a long and extensive history of releasing Monkee products so mistakes like these are inexcusable.

Overall, I hope Rhino releases more Monkees episode on DVD (especially the alternate version of the pilot). I think the following would make great extras on future Monkee DVDs: 1)Include the original Kellogg's and Yardley commercials, as well as the Kool-Aid commericals from the CBS reruns. Network promos would be nice too. 2)Have the ability to swich the soundtrack to play the original songs, songs from the summer 1967 reruns and CBS reruns. 3)Have a chaper break for each of the songs. 4)Captioning. 5)Interviews or audio commentary with the Monkees. 6)A booklet about the episodes instead of just a piece of paper with the chapter breaks.

5-0 out of 5 stars More Monkees on DVD PLEASE?????
I got the DVD today and I LOVE it! The whole series should be released in the DVD format. The Bio Screens as well as the Main screen were cool! The guys at Rhino Home Video did a superb job at restoring these episodes to top notch quality!

The picture was sharp, and colors were crisp and clear.. Much better quality then in the VHS format.

The Pilot was cool to see as well as the one about Micky impersonating Babyface Moralas. The picture Frame has me on the floor when Peter is in a shower and covers himself while having a funny look on his face.. Hillbilly Honeymoon is not my favorite episode but the scene where Mike "Plays his nose" was a scream! Aside from that, it is a worthy addition to my DVD collection... THANK YOU RHINO HOME VIDEO! Keep them coming on DVD... ... Read more
