What? The word "Bleedin´" is not an "f-bomb"!
Despite it’s imperfections, I’ve always enjoyed the movie & recall seeing the touring version of the band about 22 years ago
Hi Bill.. just curious, why? I think this is the first time in your 35,000 posts that I didn't agree with your assessments... lol, all good tho.
great movie, superb music
and a lesson learned to all band musicians
stay away from the girls in your band. keep it in your pants or your band is headed south.
Seen it way too many times. Guy gets involved with Girl in band, thats it, the thing melts down.
I'm sure there are exceptions... but not many.
Hey BB, I just thought it was predicable, gratuitous, and kinda dumb.
I'm also a cranky ol' coot who just saw for the first time recently.
A F bomb a minute, just for it's own sake never impresses me either.
I know lots of people love the movie, but I'd rather see a more believable story about the real artists/creators of 60s R&B.
I know it's really a young persons movie.
I do try to reign in my cynical self, but the so and so escapes from time to time.
Anyways, I'm not saying I'm right, I just was not impressed after seeing it.
Sounds like rumours to me...likewise, make it pay
I love that movie. It's part of a trilogy along with The Van and The Snapper, about the Rabbitt family. The books the movies are based on are also good as is the sequel to The Commitments, "The Guts."
My only complaint about The Commitments is that because of it, everyone had to start playing "Mustang Sally." I don't remember MS being a "thing" until that movie.
Howzabout a rewrite, centered around a Texan ex-pat living in PG, forming an alt-country outfit
pardon my ignorance, whats PG?
Our bass player gave me cd to watch. He loves
I never had time..but, someday
Who’d want to see that?
I have to agree it was a highly flawed film, but I did enjoy the music itself. The "concept" could have been done so much better.....BY THE WAY....until someone mentioned it above, I had never connected Glen Hansard with the Commitments....That in itself is cool.
Never seen it. I'll remedy that.
Prince George, B.C....bud
That beedin nordie gobsite yukking it up with his DUP nutter mates has never even been down passed Newry. He knows sod all about Irish music, certainly not enough to parody it.
Who’d wanna live it?
The movie is 25 years old and deliberately shows the grimey, unrefined side of Dublin which was completely contrary to the way official Ireland wanted to portray. It was honest, we were more comfortable with community born of poverty than the emerging tiger economy would eventually delude us into believing. The monologue about being the blacks of Europe, nailed our identity like very few artistic pieces did at the time. You have to look past the f bombs to what was an extraordinary and liberating cultural statement.
I was 12 or 13 when I saw the Commitments and I thought it was great. I was just starting to learn about blues guitar, and this movie is where I first heard "Mustang Sally"
