perhaps it's because i despise kate hudson.

You're not hardcore
Unless you live hardcore
And the legend

Was way hardcore.

The list is null and void. "The Wall" doesn't appear...

HardCoreLogo....c'mon...Best Rock'n Roll movie. Ever
 
2005-04-08 07:42:22 AM
I started reading that article and apparently whatever moran wrote it hasn't necessarily seen those films, at least not this decade.

Read the summary of Spinal Tap, he says Rob Reiner played the manager and even quotes a line he supposedly said in that role!

No School of Rock??? Jack Black should be pissed!
 
2005-04-08 08:03:43 AM
what about The Wall?
 
2005-04-08 08:05:02 AM
The list might work if it seperated concert based movies, The Song Remains the Same, from feature movies, Hard Days Night. Also he obviously hasn't seen all of the Elvis movies, namely the first couple. Which weren't the shtick he ended up doing. At least this list isn't as unbeleivably bad as Rolling Stone's top 100 hundred guitar players list. Oh that one was so wrong on so many levels.

No "Stop Making Sense"?

Spinal Tap??

/didn't RTFA.....
 
2005-04-08 08:08:57 AM
RTFA, Spinal Tap is there.....
 
2005-04-08 08:09:40 AM
The Last Waltz.

End of story, thanks for playing.
 
2005-04-08 08:09:50 AM
For movies/documentaries there is no better dvd to watch than The Band's The Last Waltz. If you enjoy classic rock, this is the best purchase you will ever make.
 
2005-04-08 08:09:58 AM
Ahh Hem!

Pink Floyd - The Wall

duh.


/did some drugs once as a kid.
 
2005-04-08 08:11:34 AM
Good to see Spinal Tap, the Kids are Alright, and The Rutles on there.

Where are The Wall, Purple Rain, and Rock and Roll Highschool?

Gabba Gabba Hey
 
2005-04-08 08:12:32 AM
If you're going to mention Phantom of the Paradise, you have to mention Hedwig.

"Almost Famous" at #1? Are you kidding? As was mentioned - "The Wall"?

Hell, how about even "Tommy"? Not that it was a spectacular movie, but it's certainly better than Almost Famous.
 
2005-04-08 08:13:09 AM
After reading that article, I agree with morrisonsl that whoever wrote that article hasn't seen Spinal Tap.
 
2005-04-08 08:15:39 AM
The Commitments?



/Fark you Jimmy.
 
2005-04-08 08:16:26 AM
Wrong! It's not a worthy list if THE WALL and THE LAST WALTZ aren't there. Also should be on the list: THE COMMITMENTS.
 
2005-04-08 08:16:53 AM
THE DECLINE of western civilization.
 
2005-04-08 08:17:37 AM
Yeah! I can't believe they included (movie I didn't think worthy) and didn't include (movie I think worthy). Fargin' bastages!

i totally agree with you.

See, it even says so on the cover.
 
2005-04-08 08:19:42 AM
PicoDelSol, morrisonsl

The fact that he confuses Rob Reiner with Tony Hendra (Reiner played the interviewer, Hendra was the manager) pretty much sums up the fact that this guy is a wanker - always the case with rock journalism.

As Frank Zappa noted: "Rock journalists are people who cant write, interviewing people who cant talk, for people who cant read."

I see that "200 Motels" wasn't on this list either.

good one. Neil Young's Rust Never Sleeps and the Grateful Dead Movie are great too
 
2005-04-08 08:22:45 AM
woodstock
monterey pop
The Grateful Dead Movie
for you Last Waltz fans, read This Wheel's On Fire by Levon Helm. You were ripped off.

2005-04-08 08:26:39 AM
Yeah, this list gets no credit with the amalgam of actual movies (What about Rock'N Roll High School?) and documentaries. BIG difference.

May I go ahead and get "The Best Folk Movie of All Time" out of the way (now there's an article we're not likely to ever see)?

 
2005-04-08 08:32:41 AM
The writer kicks off the article saying that the AFI picked their top Rock movies, but this list represents his list. Kinda egotistical, no? I would have rather read the complete AFI list that he references instead of his own.

Anyway, I am looking forward to following this thread with the same fervor that I did with the "favorite internet radio stations" thread. I picked up a ton of amazing suggestions on that one, so I'm glad to see people posting their favorites on this one.

lovelaura mentioned a great title, "Velvet Goldmine". To keep that theme going, I just want to say that Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars" concert movie is the first concert movie that I have watched on my new home theatre set-up that truly blew me away.

Please keep those suggestions coming! (especially for 'concert movies' that are must-sees)
 
2005-04-08 08:36:11 AM
No Suburbia? No Pink Floyd? worst list ever.
 
2005-04-08 08:36:48 AM
i liked most of them.
except almost famous.
perhaps it's because i despise kate hudson.


I liked most of them.
Especially Almost Famous.
Perhaps it's because I adore Anna Paquin.



By adore I mean lust and by lust I mean filled with an overpowering desire to engage in carnal relations and by carnal relations I mean fark and by fark I mean, c'mon, she's about as beautiful as an earthly creature is allowed to be.
 
2005-04-08 08:38:47 AM
Clearly 10 is not enough. I would put Woodstock Number 1, for nostalgia's sake. The Last Waltz started my 25 year appreciation of Neil Young. Joni and Emmy Lou were awesome in that movie. Van the Man! Dylan rocks!

I watched School of Rock with my 12 year old. Good times. he's turned me on to Green Day.

I used to finish closing the Der Weinerschnitzel on Grand Ave in Mission Beach at 11:45 and peddle down to the midnight movie and watch The Greatful Dead Movie, Jimmy Plays Berkley, Monterrey and other rock movies. There were alot of good ones made in the 70s. How about The Harder They Come.
 
2005-04-08 08:39:42 AM
I can't believe they forgot 'Airheads'.
 
2005-04-08 08:57:44 AM
Blues Brothers

....we're on a mission from god...
 
2005-04-08 08:57:52 AM
At least he briefly mentioned Quadrophenia.

SherKhan: Perhaps it's because I adore Anna Paquin.

I went to university with her sister.

/Not much, but it's all I got...sigh.

ahh, that's true.

Not to mention he says "Watch for prefame appearances by Billy Crystal and David Arquette." David Arquette was ten years old when that movie was made. My guess is he meant Bruno Kirby.
