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.

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.

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'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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
