It was exciting to watch the movie. Such a heartfelt,real,and honest movie. It was nice to see the other side of each Backstreet Boy that I’ve never seen before. Such vulnerability,honesty,and rawness. Each hometown visit left a mark that I will never forget. Each story also left a lesson that we will never forget. Brian’s journey through his problem is/was admirable. It wasn’t easy especially when his livelihood depends on it. But he faced it with dignity and grace. Such admirable attitude which made me love and respect him even more. There were laughter while watching parts of the movie, while some scene got me in tears.
One particular one is the confrontation between Nick and Brian about Brian’s problem. It wasn’t easy to watch it knowing their relationship before. I miss it. I miss them. It must have been hard for Nick to say those things, yes! He was pissed off, angry and maybe even frustrated or even defeated while choosing songs for the new album. Maybe it came out of anger, but I would also like to believe that it was done out of love. I think Nick misses Brian, their relationship and carefree attitude. Kevin is right, there was a lot of baggage there for the past 20 years or so, but I think more than anything, it was a little brother missing his relationship with his big brother. I love Nick’s analogy of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. They do need each other. It was the unbeatable team.
Seeing each and every Boy share the story of their roots and humble beginnings was amazing. And part of their story is of course Lou Pearlman. Like what AJ said, it was hard going through that then you start questioning what is real and what is not. It is hard to be grateful to someone who helped you get to where you are at the same time used you. Learning about all those people who has been instrumental in utilizing the Boys’ talents and helped them make a difference in our lives now. It was humbling to see them go back and pay tribute to those people. Seeing all those old video clips of school plays and talent shows was special.
Another part of the movie that really tugged my heart was seeing Q in some clips. Especially his interaction with AJ. It must have been hard for all of them to watch it. But Q being Q like always manages to make me/us smile. I’m happy that he got to be a part of this movie so it adds up to our list of wonderful memories of him.
After watching the movie, I wanted to hug each and every Boy. It made me such a proud Backstreet Boys Fan. It was amazing. Highly recommended for everyone to watch. Fan or not, everyone will appreciate this movie and be a fan of the Backstreet Boys after. Thank you Boys for sharing your story with us. Love you all to the moon and back.
