One Direction: Reaching For The Stars Part 2, The Next Chapter (2014/Inception DVD)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Main Program: C+

Since their phenomenal performance of Take Me Home, this documentary takes a look at One Direction for the last three years. From UK to America these five teenage boys have taken the world by storm to now the premier of their first 3D movie. Take a look to behind the scenes with their managers to see how these boys have become the new hit teenage band celebrities for millions of fans in One Direction: Reaching For The Stars Part 2, The Next Chapter (2014).

This was a documentary about One Direction, not with directly with the members themselves, but rather through the managers and producers of One Direction with stock footage. The tell how they manage the boy's stage, social and private lives. How they deal with the millions of fans and their public relationships. It's not easy being in a pretty boy band, their lives are basically scripted and scheduled, there is no such thing as private lives for them, their every move monitored, anyone they talked to is instantly hounded by jealous fans.

This sequel program (see the first one elsewhere on this site) takes a look in the the celebrity lives, when you are a celebrity your life follow 24 hours a day by paparazzis, fans, with cameras, smart phones and other recording devices. Everyday is filled with touring, training, parties and interviews, that they must live the perfect life for their fans to read, text, follow, dream and idolize. Ironically, even thought they are rock stars, the are shackled by the social media and expectations, but then they were always anything but normal. The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is very weak and there are no extras.
