Top 10 Bands & artists that deserve their own biopic films…

I love music biopic films. Ya know, movies about famous artists and bands that are played by different actors. There have been many over the years with movies like “La Bamba”, “The Buddy Holly Story”, “Walk the Line”, “Ray”, “Get On Up”, “Straight Outta Compton”, “The Doors”, “Sid and Nancy”, etc.

Now with the release of “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the upcoming “Rocketman” (biopic film of Elton John), I thought it would be fun to name some bands & artists that I think deserves their own biopic big screen films… enjoy the list:

  • Metallica: You know this one will be coming sooner or later. I think a biopic film about Metallica spanning the entire career of the band would be fun. This film could tell so many interesting stories everything from the Cliff Burton era, the Cliff Burton death, the Napster controversy, the Dave Mustaine feud, getting close to breaking up around the “St. Anger” days and so on and so forth. This would make an interesting movie for sure.
  • Michael Jackson: There have been a few TV movies about MJ I think but I think his story should get told on the big screen. You know this one will be coming at some point.
  • KISS: I think it’ll be interesting if Kiss gets a biopic film made about the forming of the original lineup and the film could lead up to their breakup. I also believe a Kiss biopic could make its way to the big screen sometime in the future for sure.
  • Billy Idol: I’m a huge Billy Idol fan and I think his story could be interesting. I’ve read a lot about his life and I think some of his stories would be good for a big screen movie.
  • The Allman Brothers Band: I think a film about the Allman Brothers would be really good. It could go from their formation all the way up to their final show at the Beacon Theater in NYC. Just think how much of a tearjerker of a film this would be with the passings of Duane, Butch and Gregg. There was actually a Gregg Allman biopic film that Hollywood was gonna put out called, “Midnight Rider” but the film got cancelled due to that freak accident that killed a young woman. They could still try and get an Allman Brothers movie going, though.
  • Joan Jett: There’s already a biopic movie about “The Runaways” and Joan Jett is in it played by a different actress but I think it’s time that Joan deserves her own biopic film. It be nice if we get a Joan Jett film chronicling her solo career. Believe it or not, I am a huge Joan Jett fan!
  • David Bowie: You know a Bowie biopic is gonna happen at some point in the future. Would be very cool. I think Bowie himself would have been honored if a biopic film happened.
  • The Clash: A film about the Clash would be awesome. The film could start at their formation and all the way to their breakup in 1986. It would make an interesting movie about the punk scene during those years.
  • Nirvana or a Kurt Cobain biopic: You know this one will be coming in the future too. Either a story about Kurt or the band Nirvana would be cool on the big screen.
  • Led Zeppelin: This would be freakin’ cool if this happened. A Led Zeppelin biopic film. It could start at its formation with the Yardbirds and then go up to the band’s breakup after John Bonham’s death, the movie could end right there. I think a Led Zep biopic movie would be a box office hit too.

 

There’s the list. Enjoy!

I’m happy that “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” both won big at the Golden Globes… both are really good films!!!

While I despise award shows and don’t watch ’em anymore, I was actually happy with the winners this year at the Golden Globes. I’m glad “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” got the most attention at the Globes last night. I saw both of these movies in the theater and LOVED both of them. Both were really good so all the awards these two movies won were well deserved.

Now on with the Oscars… will “Bohemian Rhapsody and “Green Book” get the most nominations? Probably. It’ll be interesting to see which film at the Oscars this year will win Best Picture. I haven’t watch the Oscars in the last several years… haven’t watched the Oscars in a long time but I’m actually thinking about watching this year. Why? I want to see which of these two movies will get the Best Picture win. It’s tough to predict which film will get the Best Picture win ’cause both of these movies are really good. Yeah, I loved the “Green Book” movie as I thought that film was fantastic.

You should see both of these films too when they come out on BluRay/DVD.

Saw the “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie earlier today and I was really surprised by it, turned out really great!

“Bohemian Rhapsody” turned out to be a great film. I’ve seen Queen’s – Live Aid performance many times before but the film made me want to watch it again.

There are only very few music biopic films that I like. My favorite music biopic movies are: “La Bamba”, “The Buddy Holly Story”, “Walk the Line”, “Ray” (the movie about Ray Charles starring Jamie Foxx), “Straight Outta Compton” and now you can add “Bohemian Rhapsody” to the list.

Whether you’re a die-hard Queen fan or not much of a fan, either way you need to go see it. The movie seemed pretty accurate with the history of Queen which is what impressed me the most. “Bohemian Rhapsody” was really great, I liked it a lot. Check it out.

Before some of you watch this film, I know some of you are going to be like, “Am I going to be watching a lot of gay stuff due to Freddie’s bi-sexual lifestyle?” Yes, you’re definitely going to see homosexual stuff in the film but not too bad. They don’t go too overboard with the gay stuff so there’s nothing worry about. This is not “Brokeback Mountain”. They wanted to keep “Bohemian Rhapsody” as family friendly as possible as a film for all ages. Freddie lived a pretty wild and crazy lifestyle. They didn’t put a lot of that stuff in the film but they did put some of his crazy life in the film, though.

I thought the film was well done. It was well-directed, well-acted and well-written too. You should definitely go check it out. I’ll definitely get the BluRay.

Cool Video’s: Hear some new songs from William Shatner’s “Seeking Major Tom” here…

William Shatner’s new spoken word album, “Seeking Major Tom” is out now and hear a few tracks including an official music video of his cover, “Bohemian Rhapsody”. I do plan to buy this album soon, ’cause I enjoy Shatner’s spoken word stuff. He’s very talented at that. “Seeking Major Tom” is a two disc album, full of rock n’ roll covers.

Enjoy a few tracks from his new album in the videos below. They rock. I love ’em!
