Wish:
I listened to some of his stuff once, but never really cared about him after that,
he just didn't speak to me with his music.

Xaromir-

Yeah...... He's not everybody's cup of tea; personally, I can take or leave him, depending on my mood.

My point still stands about the film though  :P  Regardless of the inherent crapness of most of the film, at the time it led inquiring minds to ask such questions. I know of a few people who were turned on to Vai as a result of that film, which led them to turn on to Zappa and so on.......

I used to love going through Zappa's albums in the record shop when I was a teenager and noting Vai's billing on the albums according to their release dates; starting at something like 'guitar'....... moving on to 'Stunt strat' and peaking at something like 'Totally amazing Stratobatics and dangerous riffing'.

Not exactly, you understand........... but something like that  ;D

I had to watch it for the second time last night after reading this thread. I find the story good, and the music aswell.

But, sorry to any Ralph Macchio fans, I really loathe him acting or if the producer/director or who it is to blame for not keeping a short leash. And if it was not for him I think I would have watched that movie a couple of times more now, since it was released that is. (Sorry for the added negativity.)

But even if it is not a guitar movie I remember that I liked the things Antonio Banderas played in "Once Upon a Time in Mexico".
This is from Desperado I think, I did not find anything from the one I refered to but I liked this aswell.

Problem for me is - music and movies are 2 different things,
both could go together really well,
but somehow... music-movies are mostly not really what i would call masterpieces.
I once wrote some movie reviews for some smaller magazines, i guess that made me sort of picky.

"It's like deja vu ........... all over again."

Not sure of the movie but that's a Yogi Berra quote.

Great idea! I can be the director!
Only thing we have to do now is chip in a 50 million each and we can make a very fine movie. :D

Anyone ???

I don't want to spend money on popcorn and soft drink if the movie is no good, but I guess it beats watching the same movies over and over again.

No need for millions, very good movies can be made with a low budget and lots of talent and good scripting.
If we find the right people and the right writing...why not?
