HIgh Fidelity

Share/Bookmark
Posted by admin On October - 17 - 2008

-A.S. This movie came up in conversation a couple of weeks ago when we were discussing our favorite Jack Black movies. Zack offered up School of Rock, and I asked if High Fidelity counted as a Jack Black movie. I was quite excited when I woke up this morning to find High Fidelity on TV.

It got me thinking past Jack Black movies, to great movies about music. High Fidelity not only has a great soundtrack and great actors, but throughout the movie has top-5 debates about all sorts of music categories. Besides, what other movie can you get a line such as: “Liking both Marvin Gaye and Art Garfunkel is like supporting both the Israelis and the Palestinians.”

Ruling out music documentaries, concert DVDs and musicals, what are some of your other favorite movies about music. I will add School of Rock into the mix, because I agree that it is one of Jables best flicks and it oozes great music. Off the top of my head, I’ll also add Almost Famous. What about hip hop movies like 8 Mile or Hustle and Flow? 3 6 Mafia won an oscar for that one… I cannot decide if Spinal Tap counts, being a mockumentary. I’m also not sure if Beatles movies like Help! and Yellow Submarine should count.

You be the judge. What are your top-5 music movies?

  2. gabe Said,

    almost famous and high fidelity are givens, at least in a “modern” sense. but what about old school movies – tommy, yellow submarine (my personal favorite beatles movies), the wall. back when movies, music, and acid slept in the same bed.

    and you can’t forget about the wiz!
