My friend Joe last week wanted me to see the movie Bandslam and we did this past Saturday night despite my original reluctance to see it. When I eventually seen the movie with Joe, my reluctance quickly melted away and to say that I was impressed with the movie is an understatement. The Rotten Tomatoes.com site gave it an 80% rating. Roger Ebert (a critic whom I have taken seriously for many years now) gave it three stars on his website. Sadly, the great critical reviews has not translated into a big box office hit. I am neverthless optomistic that it will do better on DVD/Blue Ray in the next few months. What is the synopsis of this movie? It is about a new kid town who manages to put together a fledging band together to compete in a Tri-state high school music competition called Bandslam and boy he does a damn good job. I wished music of this decade of 2000s which is about to end in exactly four months produced music like this fictional band in the movie called I Can’t Go On/I’ll Go On with their song Amphetamine. I can’t get this song out of my mind and I am enjoying it!
