I’ve watched the Motley Crue biopic film on Netflix called “The Dirt” last Sunday night and I thought it was surprisingly good! I wasn’t much of a Motley Crue fan much over the years but after seeing this movie, makes me want to get into their music more. I’ve heard all of their hit songs on MTV, of course so I’m definitely familiar with their music. I only own one Motley Crue album which is “The Saints of Los Angeles” their latest album but I’m planning on getting their older albums soon.
As far the Dirt goes, I was surprised of how realistic and accurate the film was. Metal bands like that can be really crazy in real life with the all the sex, drugs and alcohol and all that stuff. Some of you may ask, is everything seen in the movie accurate? According to the band, Motley Crue themselves, they said yes everything in the movie is pretty much true. I’m gonna have to read the book now which was written by Tommy Lee.
The movie had some pretty mixed emotions, though. A lot of times the movie can be funny and entertaining as hell but at the same time it can also be scary and sad. Why is the film a bit scary? Probably ’cause of all the drug use in the movie and what drugs can really do to you, that’s one thing that film showed you. The film wanted to educate you about the dangers of drugs which they did a good job of, I think. The film also can be pretty sad and gotten serious like with the death of Vince’s daughter, Skylar which was the most serious part of the whole film.
I thought it was a great movie. It’s a great movie for die hard fans of Motley Crue and a good film for new fans too. I don’t know much about Motley Crue but I’m gonna have to learn more about them after seeing this movie. I definitely plan on watching this movie again on Netflix this week. Probably this weekend actually. The film was well-written and well-acted by the cast too. It’s recommended seeing for any music fan. You don’t even need to be a Motley Crue fan at all to watch this film. You can watch it to educate yourself on what the rock n’ roll lifestyle is really like. The rock n’ roll lifestyle may seem like a lot of fun but this film wants to show you that it isn’t always enjoyable.
Definitely check it out if you’re a Netflix subscriber.
Don’t get me wrong… I love Motley Crue. I think they are one of the baddest metal bands on the planet. They’re a great band but I don’t get their over hype of their so called retirement or break-up or whatever. I’ve never seen legendary bands do this before. When bands call it quit, they would either go out quietly or just announce their break up and not doing anything else after that. Why does Motley Crue have to shove their retirement in our faces?
Usually when artists do that… like farewell tours or whatever… they usually make huge comebacks in the future like Garth Brooks just did. Remember Garth’s last big farewell tour? KISS have done it too. Phish have also done it.
If a band is gonna quit. Then just fuckin’ quit. It’s an easy thing to do. You don’t have to go on lengthy farewell tours and promote it to death. When famous bands do farewell tours and they promote it heavily… all it is it’s just ego-stroking… ya know, jerking themselves off. That’s what it is, in my opinion. They are desperate for attention and desperate to get respected more. A lot of ass-kissing.
I like Motley Crue but I’m not gonna lie, they are a bunch of egomaniacs for sure. That can’t be denied.
How much do you wanna bet that the Crue will come back in a few years or so? They take a few years break and then they promote their next BIG comeback. With that being said, I don’t buy it at all that this band is done. They’ll be back… they’ll always come back.
Today, the legendary 80’s hair metal rockers, Motley Crue, famous for songs like “Dr. Feelgood”, “Girls Girls Girls”, etc. just announced a pretty lengthy farewell tour w/ Alice Cooper opening. After they finish their tour, the band claims they’re done completely.
Sorry but these guys are full of shit and I don’t buy their “retirement” one single bit.
Usually when legendary bands & artists announce retirement publicly… they usually make huge comebacks years later. Look how many times Kiss have done that? It’s hard to take “retirement” from bands/artists seriously these days. Why? It’s because of their huge egos… they all wanna make that “huge comeback” so they can sell more tickets to their shows.
Motley Crue is a great band though, I’ve always dug ’em.
Don’t take “retirement” seriously. They’ll be back… they always come back.
That’s a classic mugshot ain’t it? This guy really think he’s a rock n’ roll badass still doesn’t he? Driving drunk in a black lamborghini? This loser still thinks it’s the 80’s or something.
The Associated Press reports:
The guy’s a loser douchebag and always has been look at his wikipedia history:
It’s understandable why you want to be a rock n’ roll badass in your younger years, that’s fine…but…when you’re 50 and still doing the badass thing, it crosses the line. This time Vince Neil has gone too far.
He’ll probably walk off easy though, because he isn’t Lindsay Lohan.
The boys in the Crue are back! Yes, the original members of the popular hairmetal band Motley Crue have a new album out titled “The Saints of Los Angeles”. The band still have the same lineup; Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, and Tommy Lee. This is the band’s first studio album in 8 years since 2000’s “The New Tattoo”.
I listened to this album quite several times actually and can not stop listening to it. It is actually a really good album and very well done. Probably the best I’ve heard from the boys in years. The album starts off with an intro that says “Welcome to Los Angeles”. The songs on the disc are actually catchy, Tommy Lee’s drumming skills is actually pretty tight. Vince’s vocals are actually fun to listen to but what caught my attention on the disc the most is the guitar playing of Mick Mars. He’s created some pretty cool kick ass riffs and great guitar solos.
The album really does bring back old school Crue back in the 80’s. It is really a fun album, I liked it a lot. Great job guys.
My favorite tracks: “Down at the Whisky”, “Saints of Los Angeles” (album title track), “The Animal In Me”, “Just Another Psycho”, and “White Trash Circus”.
Score for Motley Crue’s “The Saint of Los Angeles” **** (4 stars as in excellent)
While the band Motley Crue announced back in 2006 they had reached a confirmed deal with MTV/Paramount Pictures to produce a biopic film about the band’s life and career, the band has decided they want out of the MTV deal. The film will be adapted from their best selling autobiography “The Dirt”. The band is now looking for new partners to make the film with. The boys in Motley Crue has finally came to a realization how disgraceful MTV has become today, and MTV station is partially responsible for making Motley Crue big and famous.
Geez Nikki! What took you so long to realize that MTV has gone down the crapper!!!! MTV started sucking ever since 90’s grunge rock died from the station.
MTV is no longer a music video station like it once was, it’s all stupid reality shows now! BOYCOTT MTV!!
Motley Crue announced they are hitting the road with a new festival simply titled “Crue Fest”. The four original members Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee, and Nikki Sixx will reunite. The band previously reunited back in 2004. Other bands also included on the “Crue Fest” lineup are: Buck Cherry, Papa Roach, Sixx A.M., and Trapt. The Crue Fest tour will kick off July 1st, and will hit 41 cities in the U.S. and Canadian cities.
This tour will be in support of their new upcoming album, “Saints of Los Angeles”, their 9th studio album which will be released June 17th. Tommy Lee describes the album as “old school and new school” Crue.
The Associated Press reports…
Another band from the past has returned. What’s with all these bands from the past returning? I’m sure they all know how bad the music industry is today, I think they are coming back to save it.
The music industry is in need of a rock revolution badily.
