i think i know which one your talking about. The Rocker believe its called. the one with the guy from the office.

Tenacious D and the pick of destiny is one of my personal favorites, the part when Jack Black thinks Sasquatch is his dad gets me every time haha

Yes! Though everyone I show it to looks at me kind of funny afterwards. Tommy also has that over the top 70's thing going- except it's kind of unwatchable aside from Pinball Wizard, Acid Queen, and I'm Free.

Purple Rain, Monterey Pop, Let There Be Rock, and Gimme Shelter are also great. Godard's Sympathy For The Devil and the Metallica movie are both pretty educational- the bands come off as kind of clueless early on, and it takes a lot of hammering things out to finish the respective classic track/product.

Oh, and Baby Snakes.

True enough but let me explain. Oh never mind.....

What I meant was.....

For instance.....

Tarantino's movies always have great soundtracks, music makes movies. Spielberg spends a lot of time on it. Can't imagine Apocalypse Now without Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries....

But seriously, Ghost Dog Way of the Samurai has awesome music in it.

But if I must use a Music Movie Reference, then Crossroads.... and any movie with Milli Vanilli, The Other Beethoven..... :-)

Spinal Tap and Anatomy Of A Murder. The latter is a great film, and has an excellent soundtrack by and a cameo from Duke Ellington.

I kind of like the funky 70's style music in the newer Oceans 11 movies. The Austin Powers movies music was cheesy cool. Also anything by Danny Elfman.

BTW, Treme totally ROCKS! Ok, it's really a TV show and swings more than rock but the music is nothing short of fantastic. Part of the story line this year includes recording sessions with Dr. John, Ron Carter and the great Carl Allen on drums. They also usually do a club seen each week with a famous artist. My favorite this year was John Hiat. If you have not seen this show yet you should really watch a few episodes. The first rate writing will have you hooked.

"Round Midnight" must be one of the greatest jazz movies ever made (and it was made by a Frenchman, quelle horreur!)... And I loved "The Fabulous Baker Boys" and "Mo' Better Blues"..

("Karate Kid" - Old Asian Guy - Karate) + Old Black Guy + Guitars = Crossroads!

And yea, I saw that Anvil movie a few weeks ago on Netflix, was pretty good. There's a movie on there about the Minutemen that's pretty good too. And that one about the Norwegian Black Metal (more about the criminal aspect than the music though).

Supposedly that movie was based on Led-Zeppelin & since i'm on the subject how about "The Song Remains The Same" the gangster scene in the beginning is over the top funny with the techno-color blood & all..lol but of course the Dragster scene with Bonham is over the top ..COOL.

Well now that I think about it, Beavis and Butthead Do America. Two great tunes, Rob Zombies Ratfinks, Suicide Tanks and Cannibal Girls and The Red Hot Chili Pepper's version of Roller Coaster of Love

And nobody mentioned "The Gene Krupa Story".It starred Sal Mineo who almost does Krupa as good as Krupa.Another couple of really good flix are "That Thing You Do"and "Almost Famous".All three of these films come fairly close to the reality of the music biz at their perspective place in time.

"All Night Long."

Dave Brubeck, Tubby Hayes, John Dankworth and, wait for it, Charles Mingus are in it, playing themselves, and I mean they actually play music.

It's a weird story about a rich guy who throws an all-night jam session/party that takes place in a fabulous house on the Thames.

I liked "the Gene krupa Story". Weren't they supposed to make a movie about Buddy Rich also?

My favorites are "Spinal Tap" and "Almost Famous".

There are certainly many movies those are made on the music themes, And few of them are high school musical movie series and from the recent releases Glee the 3D concert movie. These are the some very good movie to enjoy to lost in the rhythm of the music. And from the upcoming movies I am excited to Download Thunder soul movie. As the trailers of the movie goes. This movie is based on the story of a band and their way toward success after a long struggle. So the theme of the movie is very exciting. I hope the movie will also be as promising as it seems from the trailers of the movie.

Disney's Fantasia is right up there for me, one of the greatest films of all time in my estimation.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned 'The Kids Are Alright', that's one of my favourites.

I would have to say I thought Anvil was one of the best movies I have ever seen. I actually felt like standing up and cheering at the end.

I don't think I saw it here, but if you can definetly check out "Hard Core Logo". It stars Hugh Dillon formerly of the headstones as the lead singer of an aging punk band on the road trying one more comback tour. Really powerful and gritty.
