"Certainly, in the topsy-turvy world of heavy rock, having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is often useful."

Rob Reiner's celebrated "rockumentary" This is Spinal Tap is an eccentric, innovative cinematic creation that justifiably generated its own individual genre. The film rapidly reached its cult classic status and is still held in extraordinarily high regard over 20 year... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things, I was really eager to check this flick. Eventually, it was basically one of those cases when I heard about the movie for years, I built up such high expectations and this movie reached an almost mythical status in my mind. However, did the movie really live up to those expectations? No, not really, I’m afraid. I mean, it was a good movie and it is de... read more

25 From 84: My Favorite Films Of 1984 (25 movies items)

"Probably the most ultimate rockumentary mockumentary film ever. This Is Spinal Tap is a film that follows an aging rock band called Spinal Tap (duh..!) around as they try to keep it together, keep it real & keep it rocking. And abysmally failing. This is a movie that works so well with it's premise because not once does the story pause to try to & proclaim to it's audience, "Hey, look at me, I'm being funny!". It doesn't have time actually, since it's too busy trying to fill every second of fi"

James's Top 30 Favorite Films (Detailed Version) (30 movies items)

"Marty DiBergi: What do you call this? Nigel Tufnel: Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump". "It's the story of a musically-pretentious and unoriginal rock band, Spinal Tap. It's shot in the style of a documentary with a fictional director and a fictional band..." Marty DiBergi: The review you had on "Shark Sandwich" which was merely a two word review. Just said, "Shit Sandwich". "And follows the rise and fall of their career. Their drummers keep dying, they're cursed with a dismal bla"
