The Backstreet Boys had the premiere of their documentary, Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of in Los Angeles. They offered up tickets to their fans for $40 presumably because they were going to be there and they said that there would be “lots of other surprises.” The second part of this review is going to talk about my disappointment with that statement, but first the documentary itself.
I have been a huge Backstreet Boy fan for years. As an American fan I was still getting their European releases shipped to me, so I could enjoy all the music we were not getting here in the state. I had my room wallpapered with their faces and bought every magazine I could find with them in it. I have seen them multiples times in concert and have even had the opportunity to meet them a few times. So needless to say, I was excited for this documentary.
The film started off great with introducing who each Backstreet Boy was and how the group first started out. I really enjoyed how they discussed the drama with their former manager, Lou Pearlman. It was cool to see each of their perspectives on the matter and it looked like it was almost therapeutic for them. The best part was how they each did a hometown visit and we got to see where they came from and someone who influenced them. Even after all this time there is still new things a Backstreet fan can learn. Continue Reading

I don’t even know where to start with this show. It was so overwhelming in the most awesome way that all my thoughts on it are jumbled because every cool thing about it keeps popping up in my mind at warp speed. But I guess I’ll begin with the usual background story first. Like many Backstreet fans I’ve been a fan since I was barely a teen. The last time I saw them in concert was fourteen (14) years ago. Crazy to think about, I know. Continue Reading

He has teamed up with Rob Carliner, producer of the Oscar winning movie, Crazy Heart. Carter is looking to raise $85,000 through Indiegogo and will match a portion of the funds raised.
He joins other celebs like James Franco, Zach Braff and the Veronica Mars crew who have all raised funds through similar campaigns.
