"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

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Rob Reiner's debut film, 'This is Spinal Tap' is a mockumentary rockumentary about heavy metal band Spinal Tap, a stadium band who are in a state of collapse as they are followed on tour by documentary maker Marti Di Bergi (Reiner). With drippy fake English accents, Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer brilliantly portray the band whose infighting and unenlightened attitudes fuel the fire of their inevitable demise. Peppered with fantastic parody songs and hysterical fake concert "
