This Movie Rocked!
11 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a terrific movie! I had no idea what I was about to see when I walked into the theater, and just sat in awe for the entire duration. Yes, the message the filmmakers shove down our throat is silly and redundant, and the cut-aways from the performances taints them rather then enhances them, but it is awesome to see so many acts truly rock out. Iggy rocked out. Morrisey rocked out. The Chemical Brother and The Mars Volta really rocked out. The Polyphonic Spree (who I had never heard of and will never forget) ROCKED IT OUT! This movie is filled with the essence of rock and roll. While it does make you feel a little like poser sitting through some of the interviews about the philosophy of the festival, it is a blast to see so many bands going for it. The Pixies reunion was amazing! Belle and Sebastian, a band I don't normally care for rocked it out. There are not enough words for all the amazing performances. If you like rock, and need a refresher in what good Rock and Roll is sounding like today, I think this film is an amazing start. If you're just going to see the chart toppers like Red Hot Chili Peppers (who rocked), Prodigy (who rocked), or Radiohead (who rocked), you're stupid and need to see this movie. Rock & Roll!
