You'd get together with your buddies and grab your guitars and figure out what the chords were that the band was playing and you practiced til you got it down.
This was the age of innocense, rock and roll at it's peak. If you lived through this era, (even if you didn't) these movies will take you on a magnificent journey in time and let you experience what it was like to be in a rock band. If you wern't in a band, you knew someone who was and you lived and breathed the music.
John Cafferty has created a musical gem here and Michael Pare' does an excellent job portraying Eddie Wilson.
The music is what makes this movie go as it should be with one of the best rock and roll movies of all time. A must have for any baby boomer and something for today's youth to watch and get a history lesson as to what music really means. Not some mp3 crap that you download and listen to for a week and discard.
Like Eddie says in the movie "I want to wrap ourselves up in our music and that it will live on forever".
The reason this film got a sequel was due to pay cable. This movie built up a cult following when in was on cable movie TV (HBO,SHOWTIME,etc). Most wanted the answers the first film left unresolved questions. You must understand, this is before cable had shows like Dexter, Six feet Under, The Tutors and others (including a MOB show which is NOT my favorite)
The sequel which was not as good as the first (there are never many where the sequel is better than the original). However it did rap up the storylines left unfinished by the first film
These two films are a cult classic. The talented Micheal Pare stars in both films as Eddie Wilson. He showcases the mind of a man who loves the music...its sounds, its feeling. He is brash in the film film. By the sequel, he is wiser, smarter and older. The second he is haunted by the demons of the past
If you are seeking great filmmaking, dont get this. BUT if you seek a story which will interest you, this double feature is a sure bet for an evening entertainment. and that in my book is worth five stars
