Ozzy Osbourne - God Bless Ozzy Osbourne [DVD]
2011


This DVD is a bit like bringing macaroni salad to a grieving family after a funeral. It's socially acceptable, a nice gesture, and hell, it may even be pretty darned good, but to be frank, it is completely unnecessary.

Ozzy is probably the most documented man in metal. Why? Well, his crazy antics and excessive drug use, of course. All this DVD serves to do is remind us of that. Seeing as one of the main creators of this documentary was his own son, expectations are a little high to deliver us something raw and revealing. Instead, what we have is essentially a less detailed visual presentation of his autobiography I Am Ozzy. It covers everything from a biographical standpoint, all the way down to what every day, mundane life is like for the man. It's all pretty well done, a nice little DVD to watch for those who are a fan of the man and his music, but overall it's nothing new. Between his autobiography, as well as countless other documentaries, there is very little here that sheds any new light onto the character that is Ozzy Osbourne. Perhaps if this documentary came out, say, 15-20 years ago, you'd be surprised at the down to earth nature of this guy, too bad the humanity behind the character has been long exposed.

Do yourself a favour, read Ozzy's autobiography if you are that interested in the man. This almost seems like a TL;DR version of that book...So I suppose if you're illiterate, or have an incredibly low attention span, this is a nice, quick alternative to reading the whole thing. Otherwise, this movie is a whole lot of common knowledge.

You'd be surprised at how many people would consider this a recommendation

This April Fools joke is a bit too early...
