"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 about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, it was basically one of those cases when I heard about the movie for years, I got such huge expectations and this movie reached an almost mythical status in my mind. However, did the movie really live up to those expectations? Not really, I’m afraid. I mean, it was a good movie and it i... read more

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Excellent "Mockumentary" that take all the things we love about rock and make it into a loving but fun homage to the genre. The music is so good that the fake band went on tour afterwards and Spinal Tap actually has better hits than some of the other hard rock bands that I have on my favorite list on Spotify. The fantastic comedic trio that makes up the heart of this band (McKean, Shearer and Guest) will forever be at their best here."
