Okay, I’ve put this off long enough… here’s my top 11 movies about music. Ever. I don’t generally watch a lot of movies, but when I do they’re generally themed around sports, music or random good times. So I consider myself an expert.
You can disagree, but just know that you’re wrong. Just kidding, you can’t disagree. 😛
- That Thing You Do – You just cannot beat Guy. This movie has shaped me as a human more than I’d like to admit.
- Almost Famous – also, incredibly impactful on my life.
- Whiplash – Best drumming movie ever.
- Drumline – Also best drumming movie ever.
- 8 Mile – Eminem is badass. Nuff said.
- Straight Outta Compton – N.W.A. are also extremely badass. And this was surprisingly accurate
- This Is Spinal Tap – You can’t have a list like this without this movie on here
- Walk The Line – such a powerful movie
- Empire Records – I had a big crush on Liv Tyler forever. (see #1 for ref)
- School of Rock – Great music. One of the only films I can tolerate Jack Black in.
- Ray – Amazing. Powerful like Walk The Line. I wish I lived in that era.
Honourable Mentions – Across The Universe, Blues Brothers, Footloose, Hedwig and the Angry Inch
