I also liked La Bamba, great music and well put together.

Used to love the Doors movie, until i found out that they’re are a lot of inaccuracies in it.

I realy liked the movie "High Fidelity" because it was about record collectors, and it had some cool music (Love, 13th floor elevators).
Almost Famous and Spinal Tap were fun to watch also.

Realy want to see "Walk the Line" but i think i wait till it gets here on DVD.

How about "Yellow Submarine"?
And "Forest Gump" had alot of good songs, including "Volunteers" in it.
But that other Tom Hanks movie "That Thing you do" just had the one song, over and over again - what were they thinking?

I love Forrest Gump too. I think the music is part of it (the protest rally :wink: ). That scene when Jenny gets on the bus and gives Forrest the peace sign with Turn! Turn! Turn! gets me everytime...

OK let's talk about some REALLY fantastic movies.
Rated and synopsised by yours truly, don Rico.
How 'bout these classics:



RIOT ON SUNSET STRIP
(1967)
Long-hair teen -exploitation flick
Features live performances by CHOCOLATE WATCH BAND and THE STANDELLS
--------------------
Daughter of police chief falls in with the "wrong" crowd of rebellious teens, ends up getting mega-dosed and gang-banged. Sorry, pops!
"Based" on true events.
***


THE TRIP
(1967)
LSD hysteria -exploitation flick
Starring Peter Fonda, Bruce Dern, Dennis Hopper, Susan Strasberg
---------------------
A noble attempt to portray acid as a legitimate psychotherapeutic tool. "A" for effort ( :D ). Primitive "psychedelic" special-effects provide hilariously cheesy results.
***


PSYCH-OUT
(1968)
Haight-Ashbury Flower Power -exploitation flick
Starring Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, Susan Strasberg, Dean Stockwell
Features live performances by STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK and THE SEEDS
--------------------
Crash pads, communal living, tie-dyes, paisley, incense & peppermints, acid-rock, free love, weird drugs, fire, sex, violence, death. What more could you ask for?
****


HEAD
(1968)
Teen idol-exploitation flick
Starring THE MONKEES
Written and directed by Jack Nicholson
----------------------
Somebody dosed THE MONKEES... And this movie is what happened. Actually better than it sounds.
***


EASY RIDER
(1969)
Counter-culture generation-gap "straights"-vs.-"freaks" exploitation flick
Starring Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson
Co-written by Terry Southern
----------------------
Two peace-loving bikers deal drugs, get rich, get laid, reject "the man", trip at Mardi Gras and get shotgunned to death by red-necks.
"We blew it, Billy."
*****


BILLY JACK
(1970)
Sequel to 1967 biker-exploitation flick "BORN LOSERS"-exploitation flick
Starring Tom Laughlin and Howard Hesseman
----------------------
Vietnam veteran renounces violence, practices Kung Fu, becomes a messianic shaman figure and protects hippie/ Indian "Freedom School" from violent red-neck aggressors.
Go Billy Jack!
*****


BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS
(1970)
NOT a sequel to "Valley Of The Dolls" -exploitation flick
Produced and directed by Russ Meyer
Written by Roger Ebert
Features live performances by STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK and THE CARRIE NATIONS

Rated X
----------------------

Big-budget epic tale of all-girl acid-rock group who rise to fame and fortune then disintegrate in a psychedelic swirl of acid, grass, free love, bisexuality, black love, suicide attempts, abortion, and drug-drenched mass-murder.
Gratuitous hand-gun fellatio and transexual-decapitation.
Possibly the greatest motion picture ever produced by anyone, anywhere on the face of the planet Earth.

Hey Don, how about:

"JOE"
1970
Starring Peter Boyle doing an incredible job. Another "straights vs. freaks" type movie, few have seen but was up for an Oscar for Best Writing.

Cheers,
Dave

Does this mean biopics or documentaries? I think people should see '24 Hour Party People' which is a dramatised account of the Madchester scene in the 80's + 90's though maybe it only got an arthouse release in the US.
'La Bamba' I saw in the cinema and I don't think it's ever really been equalled. I saw 'Walk The Line' and wasn't entirely convinced -

another link to those videos :

that JAMC video isn't real - they look about 15 or something

my favorite movie of all time is Der Untergang:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363163/
I saw it 6 times on the theaters and I wish I could see it more.
my second faovirte movie is Once Upon A Time In America.it was my fav until I saw Der Untergang.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087843/

in fact I'm thinking about a career in directing.I have some short movie drafts and I will be shooting one of them next month.I don't have any proper equipment, actors and anythign at all.But I have to start somehow.if I can't attract attention with my short movies I will be so depressed.I don't want to do any other jobs.I am totally focused on this.

Hey Zeke - how about a claymation movie about the JA?
With live recordings of them for the soundtrack??
No actors needed - Brilliant!

claymation animations will cost a fortune!and they are really really hard to make and it will take years.I can't afford this or the copyrights for the songs.I considered making a JA documentary before but I don't have enough knowledge for this.I am a great JA fan yes but that's not enough.I hope I will have the moeny and the information to make a JA documentary in the future.but now it is impossible.I will make a fiction movie with a hired minidv.actors will be my friends - so no payments.I am an unsuccessful (nobody sends children to learn swimming here!!) swimming teacher, I can't even afford hiring an 16mm camera.making an JA documentary/animation is just a dream for me now.

Yeah but, think how simple the special effects would be for the acid trip scenes... just smush the characters around a bit, add in different colored lumps of clay, and you've got it!

Making an animation movie :
1st thing is to be creative....
2 ways to get there......

If you are not using your own cam.
then you should ask that company to
get the cam for less $ as you name
them in your movie like the prof. do !
At the start and at the and of the movie.

(1)
The stop-motion way with clay,
low $costs.....a lot of works.
You have to create the 'stars' move 'm
then record 'm then move again then record....
Record Motion Stop Record Motion Stop etc. etc.
Much works if it is done good it looks cool....
The old King Kong (1933) is made that way !
If you realy want to do it by stop motion,
then please use Google search for : stop motion movies
a lot of information to read and tips to do it.

http://www.stopmotionworks.com/stopmosoftwr.htm

http://forums.creativecow.net/cgi-bin/n ... tid=856149

http://www.animateclay.com/

(2)
The other way costs much$$$$$....
A fast computer and a program like 3D Studio MAX
or MaYa from Alias Wavefront.....
Less works.....you have to learn to handle the software.
Almost any movie with animations are created with
software and a fast computer.
Pixar , Industrial Light and Magic are 2 company's
who created some animation movies.

Editing a movie for distribution on DVD ?
Adobe Premiere , Ulead Media Studio are 'low cost'
options and Avid software is a bit more $$$.
The raw movie scenes on tape have to be
digitized with a computer, scenes that you don't like
can be deleted....some prof. effects etc. etc.

If you are working alone you can exactly do
what you like to do with your movie.

Note: you don't see me playing any instrument on stage
or i am not the movie star.....you could find me
in the studio behind the 48 track mixer or
as the video -editor.....
A bit of computerjunkie & technofreak....
