It's great listening to this stuff again, all I have left is an Orange Seed Parade demo and a Reprobates EP, both on cassette.
Speaking of the Reprobates, I guess the set designer/dresser of the movie Disturbia was from Baltimore. There are a bunch of their flyers in the main character's bedroom.
The film was okay for me, could have been better that's for sure....the critics freaked out over the sex etc but that is to be expected and I'm sure that is what the Crue was hoping for anyway, after all this film wasn't for the idiot 'official' critics, it was for the fans....
I thought it was okay for what it was.
Did think the acting was pretty terrible. Also thought it was very rushed and they skipped a lot. I think this could've been better as a 5 part mini series. I mean, if they can do a 5 part series on Ted Bundy, they could easily do a five part series on the Crue's story. They could've added more time period 80's stuff, spliced in more "real" live footage, maybe some "real" interviews from the period with the Crue or other people talking about the Crue, etc.....IDK.
Definitely felt very low budget....They could've easily done a much better job with this IMO especially for how long it seemed to take coming together.
Definitely a horrible movie in terms of any critical appeal but still okay as low budget entertainment to kill a couple hours.
Lots of poor reviews were good for me to read before I watched it as I loved the book and kind of expected the movie to be epic.
The poor reviews allowed me to go in with a blank canvas.
As such, I thought it was good.
Agree some seemed rushed. Normally you'd expect a downward spiral for Vonce when he left the band and Skylar got ill, but that was all pretty fast. Also skipped his solo albums.
In fact it was hard to tell how many years had passed at times.
Smacked of a Netflix movie rather than a big budget movie like the Queen one.
My 19 yo daughter loved it.
My wife thought it was ok.
Apparently fans love it, but the critics don't...
