MonthlyMusicMovieReview #3 – “This Is Spinal Tap”

Hello everybody! Welcome to the third edition of MonthlyMusicMovieReview. In this series I write a short review for music movies and post them on the blog, and today I’m looking at what is definitely one of my all time favorite movies – This Is Spinal Tap.

Now, this movie is not only one of my favorite music movies – but generally one of my favorite films ever made. And loosely based on the fact that is infinitely quotable and it is hilarious!

This Is Spinal Tap is a fake rockumentary about a fake band called “Spinal Tap”. They are an 80’s hair metal band, and essentially they just took a bunch of 80’s stereotypical hair bands and put them into one blowing it up to the max.

The film is under 90 minutes long, and you’ll laugh the whole time. With likable characters, and fun not being able to find your way around the arenas – you’ll fall in love with this movie.

Especially if you are a guitarist you could relate to the beloved Nigel – who doesn’t like his guitars being touched and likes to turn up the amps to “11.” One of the single greatest movies scenes of all time is featured in this movie with Nigel in his guitar room. It was pretty dang funny.

Any how, thank you guys for reading today’s blog. I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you all soon! Check out Spinal Tap, and keep on rockin!

MonthlyMusicMovieReview – #1 “Scott Pilgrim vs The World”.

Hey readers! As said last week I will be opening up a new series in my blog – and here it is.

I am now writing monthly reviews for music movies, and to start I’d like to do this movie I recently saw that I LOVED!

Now to start, it is debatable to put this film under the “music” genre, but it’s close enough.

Based out of the comic book series by Brian Lee O’Malley, “Scott Pilgrim vs The World” / is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.

Set in Toronto, Canada – Scott Pilgrim is a bass player who shops at good will and live across the street from his parents. He meets the girl of his dreams…literally and has to defeat her 7 evil exes to be with her.

Stupid, right? That’s why it’s so ridiculously funny. What I love even more is that the bad guys are played by actors who portrayed super heroes, such as Captain America and Superman.

This 2 hour masterpiece is filled with fun, hilarious visual comedy, an incredible soundtrack. As a mega fan of The Smashing Pumpkins, and a pretty huge Metric fan I’m forced to love this movie. Even funnier is that Metric and Smashing Pumpkins toured together just this summer. Who knew? Maybe that’s how Billy Corgan discovered Metric.

Any how if you like oddballs, outcasts, loveable losers, rock music, video games, and comic books this movie is perfect for you. Just note it’s PG-13 for a reason, and shouldn’t be watched by a child under 13 without a parent. But, 13 or older they can watch alone. Also if you don’t like dumb jokes, comic books, video games, rock music, hilarious visual comedy, awesomeness, & super heroes you may want to steer clear. Any people over the age of 60 wouldn’t get any of the jokes.

But anyway, thanks again for reading! Watch or download Scott Pilgrim on Netflix or iTunes! It consistently hits the sweet spot!
