I watched Rock Star again last night.
I'd have to say that and Almost Famous are my favorites.

Funny Policemen.

I never gave it much thought until you asked but between Super Troopers and the Naked Gun trilogy, yeah, my favorite movies are about funny policemen.

Josie and the Pussycats!

Actually I did think it was rather funny, especially when the boy band shows up at the end and the less injured guy said he thanks God every day that he knew the words to Enter Sandman.

I don't usually care much about music industry related movies.

I'm fairly sure it was just movies about music...

Spinal Tap was seminal.

The Jazz Singer. The Rose. La Bamba. Walk the Line.

I enjoyed Rock Star.

There are lots.

Yes, that's what I meant.
I'm just trying to see what others post to help me remember all of the good ones that I have forgotten about.

I like a wide variety of movies since I am kind of a movie freak. If I had to say a favorite category , then it would be suspense / thrillers.

Amadeus

Immortal Beloved (This one with a bullet!)

Nowhere Boy (I'm a Beatles fan)

I enjoyed Rock Star. I like Almost Famous much more. I have it on blu-ray. It is set in my time, so the concerts and everything are very familiar and fondly remembered. I was, am, and will always be a concert junkie.

Usually Science Fiction is my first choice for movies and reading.

Does Across the Universe count? Loved it.

I'd count that. I watch it often.

Loved 'em both.

Definitely Spinal Tap, because bands of the era are almost universal in saying "Holy shit, how did they manage to nail it so well?".
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 7:26:53 AM EST

If you want one about the real industry, Sound City is awesome for the first 2/3rds

Spinal Tap
Purple Rain
The DOORS
Backbeat (the early Beatles)
That Thing You Do
Almost Famous
The Decline of Western Civilization Part II The Metal Years (Documentary)
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 7:32:15 AM EST
Almost Famous is great.


If you want to see a truly awesome rock documentary, watch "Running Down A Dream." It covers Tom Petty's early days, long friendships, and his legendary battle with the music industry. It's very long (4 hours!) but worth the time. Check it out.

I see that the entire movie HEAD is available on youtube. Made by post-TV Monkees (yup, hey hey we're the Monkees) it's worth checking out too.

I actually like "Josie and the Pussycats" a lot, and it ain't just to see a healthily bodace-filling Rosario Dawson, either. Okay, maybe it is.



My favorite has to be "The Rose", followed closely by "Country Strong". Never knew Gwyneth Paltrow could sing but she's fantastic.

Some Kind Of Monster is the most whiny ass therapy speak I've ever seen!

That one killed Metallica and Megadeth for me, what a bunch of fucking crybaby's!

Edit I still listen to the first three albums but nothing after that. Oh and I try to forget what I heard and saw in that movie.
