Love and Mercy 60s scenes also all basically this (Hal Blaine: "Brian, do you realize you're making the greatest album of all time?")

1. how come Anthony Michael Hall couldn't manage a south african dialect there? 2.) the actor playing Rick allen looks as if he did not previously play drums but took a crash course, as what he is doing in those shots is correct but he looks so so awkward; 3. I like how you hear the guy playing Elliott's voice when he's not hitting the high notes, but you hear Ellliott's master take when he does…

I never saw it, but isn't there a scene in the Johnny Cash bio where June says "the problem with you is that you never learned how to walk the line," and then cut to him performing "Walk The Line?"

the doors has so many of these

lol wait a minute did Lange really have all the backing vocals recorded before Elliott's lead vocal?

lol first time i heard Heroin i thought it was a Doors song cos of this movie

I will rep till I die for 'That Thing You Do' being so much more legit than other music biopics.

What happened to all the Jeff Buckley films that were coming out, was there not like three at one point? Those would have been full of moments.

I want a scene where he writes Hallelujah

duped and used by my worst Miss U (President Keyes), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 17:49 (two years ago) link

Kind of funny to compare this clip to the Tape Op interview where Shipley details how painstaking and laborious their working process was. At least on Pyromania, Lange actually was one of the main backing vocalists.

Also the band members are standing around with their guitars plugged in and headphones on during a vocal session.

billstevejim, Thursday, 11 May 2017 00:03 (two years ago) link

Just kidding. Everyone knows that every song is recorded live in one take.

should be a stones biopic where Jagger and Richards are at a park, thinking up band names, and they see some kids playing with rocks and some old woman sitting nearby says "look at those kids just rolling stones" and they look at each other and smile and Jagger says, "bloody 'ell that's it."

i love how in that Doors clip above it depicts the whole song coming together almost at once in this unreal but super mythological way. Robby gives the song a quick intro and before you know it Jim is improvising his own lyrical contribution. they step outside for a second while you hear Ray figuring out the iconic keyboard riff in the background. then they go back inside and get ready to play the song as a band for the first time, count in, cut to montage! perfect.

except the montage is really weak lol. a fews marquees are shown while the band continues to play on the soundtrack (with added traffic noises) standing in for 6 months of live performance.

this thread has reminded me to watch walk hard again soon

Every single frame of the film "Great Balls of Fire"

chr1sb3singer, Thursday, 11 May 2017 19:35 (two years ago) link

the truth is I can't bring myself to sit through enough biopics to accurately cite any of these instances

Οὖτις, Thursday, 11 May 2017 19:46 (two years ago) link

Saw Walk Hard for the first time about a week before watching Miles Ahead. They're blurred together in my memory.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Thursday, 11 May 2017 19:48 (two years ago) link

I assume Beyond the Sea has a scene where Kevin Spacey writes "Splish Splash" after having his Saturday night bath interrupted by some friends

Οὖτις, Thursday, 11 May 2017 19:53 (two years ago) link

This thread has awakened in me a previously-unknown desire, a deep and profound desire, to write a music biopic. All I know so far is that there will be a scene where one of the subjects is speaking to another before turning to the camera and finishing his sentence with the name of their band's most popular album. The camera will then hold on his face for a good twenty seconds to make sure the audience truly sees what I did there.

otm about walk hard, that movie is so funny and so thoroughly skewers these types of scenes that it's nearly impossible for me to take biopics of any type seriously

John C. Reilly is a national treasure

JONH D RIELLY FOR PRESIDETN
He took down that music biopic thing HARDCORE. DAMMMNNN.

PRESIDENT STEAMPUNK J. BRAINSTEM (bizarro gazzara), Thursday, 11 May 2017 20:14 (two years ago) link

I would legitimately cast a presidetnial vote for Jonh D. Rielly.

i didn't really enjoy Walk Hard, probably didn't even laugh once at it. compared to Spinal Tap and the Rutles it was some weak stuff.

a.k.a. the 2nd greatest rock n roll movie of all time after the doors

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 11 May 2017 20:30 (two years ago) link

agreed. I actually rewatched it recently due to all the praise it gets around these parts

It's a nice idea and Reilly is a great lead but they forgot to write any good jokes

Number None, Thursday, 11 May 2017 20:33 (two years ago) link

most of the origin stories in biopics play as any more realistic than a time traveling teenager giving Chuck Berry the idea for Johnny B Goode

nomar, Thursday, 11 May 2017 20:50 (two years ago) link

If I had a rating system that took the difference between how much I thought I was gonna enjoy a movie and how much I actually enjoyed it, Walk Hard would probably be my highest rated movie ever

y'all are tripping walk hard was great, or maybe i'm just too blinded by my love for tim the work of tim meadows to see clearly

meekseeks mill (voodoo chili), Thursday, 11 May 2017 20:58 (two years ago) link

tim the world of tim meadows needs to be the title of tim meadows' autobio

PRESIDENT STEAMPUNK J. BRAINSTEM (bizarro gazzara), Thursday, 11 May 2017 21:14 (two years ago) link

lol forget that superfluous tim

(also what casting directors seem to be unfortunately saying about tim meadows at this point)

meekseeks mill (voodoo chili), Thursday, 11 May 2017 21:24 (two years ago) link

in the ll biopic i hope there's a scene where you see ll in his trailer on the set of deep blue sea, notepad in hand, frustrated - he's blocked. then he catches sight of his hat and his eyes narrow, then widen, then he smiles. cut to 'deepest bluest'.
