After the debacle that was the last post, I promised you a real actual review of Baby Huey's Great Easter Adventure.

I do not intend to disappoint.

With a copy of the DVD in my hot little hands I sit here at the keyboard ready, willing and able to tell ya all about this disc.

For starters, it's light. Lighter than some of my other DVDs. Perhaps this is because it doesn't have any insert in the case. Maybe the sadness and loneliness felt by the disc due to living the existence of a loner is not enough to counter the lack of an insert. Maybe the heaviness of his heart does not make up for the hollowness of his soul... Maybe I am streeeeettttccchhing to make sure I can fill up a whole page with this review.

Maybe.

The DVD comes with a slightly different cover than the video cover that I posted at the top of the page.

Slightly different... but no better.

As far as smell, this disc is pretty fantastic. It has that new plastic smell that makes ya feel a little dizzy.

Let me take another whiff.

Whoa Nelly! That's some good disc.

As far as taste, I would have to say it's not very good. In fact, it's awful. Very bland, yet it leaves an aftertaste. It does have a faint buttery taste... or maybe thats baby powder.

I took off the bandanna.

In closing, I would have to say that Baby Huey's Great Easter Adventure is a fine DVD. It has nice cover art AND full color artwork on the disc. It also features a write up on the back that appears to be free of typos.

I recommend this disc to anyone that is in the market for a disc.

  4. Oh, that was well worth the wait. Well, no I guess it wasn't. Was this the evil Sweetie in these pictures? Because he has facial hair like the Star Trek episode with the evil Spock and the only way you knew he was evil was because he had facial hair.

  6. Reviewing the Review

    I think Sweetie went out on a limb on this one. This is one of the few BOJ articles in which I personally did not find any significant weakness even after many viewings. From the direction, to the acting, to the storyline, to the score, The Baby Huey DVD review has the word classic written all over, and it really is not much of a surprise that it is now considered by many one of the top five posting of all time. Perhaps when it comes to blogging techniques BOJ has not been as revolutionary as RocketBoom, but its influence on society in general is comparable. Rarely a review has defined or re-defined a writing style as much as this one did, but its influence goes well beyond that.

    Its influence has been so big that elements of it can be found in virtually every Baby Huey review nowadays. Sweetie has become one of the most established figures in the public's imagination. But to say that he is simply "influential" is to diminish its true qualities, and so is to describe it simply as "a DVD review".

    The review opens with a shot of Sweetie holding the DVD box. He is a powerful man, and it was not without the use of violence that he achieved this position during the course of his life. The opening photo gives a perfect setting of where and how Sweetie’s power extends; from the stalker of Mr. T, to the immensely popular Four Brothers poster, Sweetie has links to people ready to ask him favors and to pay him back. Some are trustworthy; some are not, but thanks to his intelligence and intuition he can almost always distinguish the two.

    However, this is 2006, times are changing, and to many of the younger people with their own blogs, Sweetie’s ideas are becoming obsolete. I purposely decided not to spoil much about the plot because I believe that the review is perfectly enjoyed without knowing anything in advance, and -- believe it or not -- there are still quite a lot of people who have never read this review. There are multiple scenes that manage to create an incredible tension, various twists, and although like any other masterpiece it can be read knowing the whole story beforehand and still be a phenomenal experience, I believe it is always a pleasure to see it for the first time and enjoy its multiple climaxes. Besides, to outline such complicated characters and such an emotionally intense story in a short review like this one would be inadmissible.

    This review certainly doesn't need my recommendation. It is universally considered one of the best of all time, and the performance by Sweetie alone is the stuff of legends. Tasting a DVD? Pure genius! The change from headwear to disheveled hair – pure photographic magic! Take time to look closely at the photos – the facial expressions tell the entire story, yet leave the read/viewer with more questions – dare I suggest a sequel is in the works? One more review and it may knock off Star Wars as the greatest double trilogy.

    Sweetie - how did you get my fax? I thought Doc said that the future is what we make of it. If that fax still exists the question needs to be answered - can the future be changed? Or is our course set already?
