Watched the Sparks doc on Netflix and while it’s well done, I’m still ambivalent about them.  Don’t get me wrong they have written some great singles, but I can take or leave much of their catalog.

Also watched “Count Me In” which was also good, but kinda made me want to just see a full doc focused on jazz drummers.

I felt the same way about the Sparks movie and the band as well. I still think the Mael Brothers would have been a great name for the band in an ironic way; neither of them are the most masculine (in spite of the singer being a high school QB.)

I'll have to check out the other film.

The Tom Petty Doc looks Cool.
I just finished the Sparks Doc. Really a fun watch. I don't think I would really enjoy seeing them in concert. But, if anyone has an extra, let me know.

Saw Eternals on Monday. It was... fine. Personally I would wait for it on Disney Plus but I was jonesing to see a legit theater movie since the pandemic. Not one of my favorite MCU films but not the worst either.

The key - in my mind- to a good biopic and it’s rarely done would be to concentrate the timeframe…almost like a play… and in that “play” tell us everything about the person…. What made them who they are and foreshadowing what’s to come…With good screenplay writing you could set a show in San Francisco- key to having Bill Graham in it- and do an hour before show, some show, and an hour after… it could work really well

Biopics suck cause they all follow this stupid arc of what a cliched rock stars life should be…how can you condense a life to 120 minutes?

Honestly I would set it in the 1971-1974 timeframe…not quite sure the year

The Good Ol' Grateful Deadcast covers this timeframe and is excellent!

icould be interesting. 

what i definitely find interesting from this movie's wiki page:

Running time:   
106 minutes (International)
86 minutes (United States)


why they hell are they cutting almost 20% of the movie for the US of A?  censorship?  assumption that attention spans won't last more than 100 minutes here?  and:

Budget   € 930,000

getting a bunch of major festival nods (including the Oscars) for a million?  well done.
