Mariah Carey Music Box Biographical Collection (DVD-Video)


Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Program: C-



So far in the strange Music Box Biographical Collection, we have looked at the installments featuring Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. Mariah Carey is a very different artist and singer from the previous subjects, but once again, you get a collage of old footage only using about 25% of the screen when it shows the footage through its drawing of a television.


Running a lousy less-than-40 minutes, very little footage of Carey is featured, but the most unintentionally funny thing is having all these British people tell us about her life and career as if she came from England. Its as if Mariah has the same appeal as David Hasselhoff has in Germany, except she is a worldwide music sensation. Now that she made her comeback, this is already getting dated.


The full frame 1.33 X 1 image looks forced and phony, with much softness throughout. The PCM 2.0 sound is weak and even with no original music licensed, it might as well have been Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono. There are no extras and not even a menu. You are better off watching Glitter!
