All-Time Rock and Roll Movies (Sorta)
« on: May 02, 2007, 06:11:00 pm »
Don't know if this has been done, but reading Dupek's thread got me interested in a topic I've been studying up lately. I would would like to see a list narrowed down thusly: NO DOCUMENTARIES, NO STRICT BIO FLICKS (like Ray would be out but something semi-autobio like Almost Famous would be acceptable or something like Walk the Line that focuses only on a part of someone's story would be ok), NO CONCERT FLICKS.
 
 that said, here's nine. Pass the quiche...
 
 Hard Day's Night
 Rock and Roll High School
 Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains
 Garage Days
 That Thing You Do
 Leningrad Cowboys Go to America
 Bandwagon
 I Wanna Hold Your Hand
 This Is Spinal Tap

What's that one where Kiss is running around trying to solve a mystery in an amusement park? It's so heinous it's almost good.
 OK maybe not.

the song remains the same (not strictly a concert flick, what with the gangster stuff and all the naked hill-frolicking)

Personally, I think Oliver Stone's "The Doors" is pretty good.

The Last Waltz
 
 
 I saw Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park on TV (perhaps captain 20 was involved?) when I was about 6.  It blew my freaking mind.  It inspired me to dress up as Gene Simmons that Halloween (in a boxed costume I bought at People's) and won scariest at my neighborhood party.  
 
 For the record I saw Sgt. Peppers (w/ Bee Gees and Frampton) when I was about 7 . . . and thought it was fantastic

I don't understand your flea-brained criteria.  Explain to me how Ray is out, but Walk The Line is OK?

I love that movie. There are a ton of actors in it that went on to be pretty big stars.
 
 And I can't belive no one has mentioned Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Didn't read the legal mumbo jumbo that would disqualify The Last Waltz.  So I'll add
 
 Eddie and the Cruisers
 
 
 No one's mentioned Satisfaction.
