To support the release of the upcoming exhilarating powerhouse GREEN ROOM, coming to UK and Irish cinemas Friday 13th May, we have a limited edition T-shirt to give away to one lucky winner courtesy of Altitude Film Distribution and Picturehouse Entertainment.


Down-on-their-luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights agree to a last-minute gig in a backwoods Oregon roadhouse. The gig soon takes a sinister turn as the band members stumble upon a grisly murder scene and find themselves targeted by a ruthless club owner and his associates, determined to eliminate all witnesses.

From the internationally acclaimed filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier (BLUE RUIN), GREEN ROOM is a nerve shredding thrill-ride with a thick vein of dark humour, featuring a gripping ensemble performance from Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Macon Blair and Callum Turner.

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. Airheads, the perfect snarky time capsule for the grunge era!

  2. I’m not going to go for Spinal Tap (greatest Mockumentary ever), so I am going to go with an film which will devide people (personally I love the film and soundtrack) The Great Rock and Roll Swindle. It reflects the dirt feel it punk and even though Sid Vicious couldn’t sing his rendition of My Way is still regarding as a classic ????

  3. Stardust(1974) with David Essex, it was an eye opener for an 8 year old. Still can’t fathom how I got into cinema to watch it.

  4. That would have to be ‘Huey Lewis & the news’ (Back in time) .. yep you guessed it Back to the future.

  5. ‘Control’ was great.

  6. For me nothing quite compares to ‘This is Spinal Tap’. 🙂

  7. Rock of Ages.

    For some reason, one of the only films where I have found Tom Cruise’s acting believable…

  8. Stillwater from Almost Famous, those guys can wailll

  9. Spinal Tap – so random, but right up my street 🙂

  10. It has to be spinal tap!

  11. Walk the Line – very realistic

  12. From Dusk Till Dawn – Salma Hayek’s Snakedance, a cool song, and a vampire mariachi band that explodes.

  13. It has to be Alice Cooper / Wayne’s world. So funny (and informative lol)

  14. The Commitments – great music!

  15. Almost Famous, a great film which tells a cracking story, funny and sad, in my top 10 films.

  16. The blues brothers timeless comedy

  17. This is Spinal Tap – so good that fiction spawned a real parody band

  18. The band in ‘From Dusk Til Dawn’

  19. It’s got to be The Blues Brothers. The music is fabulous and Dan Ackroyd & John Belushi give amazing performances.

  20. Tommy featuring The Who (best rock band in the world). It’s timeless and the amount of guest artists is brilliant, plus it was directed by Ken Russell.

  21. Spinal tap not very original but the best

  22. Unfairly lambasted in some quarters, I’m going for Oliver Stone’s “The Doors” from 1991. Stone sets the pace well, Val Kilmer does a fairly convincing turn as the doomed frontman and, of course, the music is utterly fabulous and timeless.

  23. School of Rock – they were too cool for school!

  24. “Still Crazy” because it is very funny and has a great cast playing the fictional band “Strange Fruit”

  25. This is Spinal Tap

  26. No Vacancy from the film “School of Rock” genuinely talented! I remember my 13 year old self desperately trying to get their cd. which didnt exist ;0

  27. For one night only the good old Blues Brothers Boys classic!

  28. The Blues Brothers from The Blues Brothers. Even if you don’t like blues music, it’s hard not to fall in love with The Blues Brothers. Calling all the way back to the classic days of “Saturday Night Live,” this duo became the first feature film to spawn from the late night sketch series. But these brothers are legendary because they’ve actually released real albums, went on tour around the country, and have stood the test of time following the death of John Belushi. Their legacy was tainted slightly by Blues Brothers 2000, but it didn’t do any permanent damage. It’s even hard to pick their best song since they collaborate with so many legends in the movie.

  29. WYLD STALYNS – Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure because WYLD STALYNS RULE!

  30. My favourite fake movie band is from Hedwig and the Angry Inch. I’ve never had such a film make me feel so empowered and outgoing as a person. It’s such a terrific film with a great soundtrack. Now, I’m going to put on some makeup and turn up the eight track…

  31. I loved Frank with Michael Fassbender . Its crazy and sad all at thd same time

  32. Spinal Tap because even though I’ve watched it dozens of times it still makes me cry with laughter. D minor is the saddest key….

  33. Hardware , carl McCoy from the nephilim and lemmy in a groovy film !

  34. I loved School of Rock with Jack Black

  35. Spinal Tap, amazing film! Great humour

  36. The Blues Brothers – best chase movie ever 🙂

  37. love airheads its really funny

  38. Let It Be with the Beatles singing Get Back on the roof of the Apple studios. After that movie insight into the Beatles they broke up and are now part of history.

  39. i really like the fake band in the tv series Vinyl called the Nasty Bits

  40. Empire records – a classic great music too

  41. Walk the Line, superb movie

  42. It has to be spinal tap!,such an epic film

  43. Sex Bob-Omb c/o Scott Pilgrim!

  44. Airheads has to be my favourite! There’s something wonderful, stupid and hilariously funny about the end sequence of them final playing to a crowd they want but from prison! And it has Adam Sandler in!

  45. Got to be the Blues Brothers, Classic Film

  46. The Commitments: absolutely superb film, great music and has stood the test of time.

  47. Tommy as it features The ‘legendary’ Who!!!

  48. Loved watching Tommy- a classic of its time.

  49. Yellow Submarine is a long-time favourite because it was weirdly bad.

  50. Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny because of it being so funny.

  51. Theres several, but I think I’ll go for Nativity, starring the amazing Jack Black, more chior than band, but still fantastic.

  52. I notice that somebody said “The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle”. This was just an attempt by McLaren to get more money from the name Sex Pistols. The true movie that people should watch is “The Filth and the Fury”. This is the true story of the greatest punk band ever.

  53. Loved The Blues Brothers

  54. Shine A Light – always loved the Rolling Stones

  55. How about Breaking Glass with Hazel O’Connor. It captures the mood of disenfranchised young people at the time (1980) and features some cracking songs Will You, Eighth Day, Writing ON The Wall etc.

  56. its got to be The Rocky Horror Picture Show, with the superb music score including the one and only Meatloaf
    aka “Eddie” an all time classic

  57. I have to say School of Rock lol loved Jack Black in it

  58. Spinal Tap – because it went up to 11!

  59. The Rutles All You Need Is Cash – just so funny

  60. The blues brothers

  61. Walk the Line – I love Johnny Cash!

  62. Spinal Tap is hilarious – Turn it up to 11

  63. ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ I watched it again recently, and it’s still as funny as I remembered. There must be a whole generation of us that still describe things as being ‘turned up to 11’.

    Looking forward to seeing ‘Green Room’ in the cinema.

  64. spinal tap

  65. Closer – Joy Division

  66. Well although its not really a song about a band as such, its such a great film it deserves a mention! Jack blacks band in High fidelity, Barry Jive and the Uptown Five, absolutely steal the show and give you something that you was not expecting from Jack blacks character!! Simply brill!

  67. This is Spinal Tap – so close to reality

  68. Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes in Star wars : a new hope hope. They only have one song but they play it brilliantly!

  71. Tommy Love the Who for many years and lucky enough to see them live at the Olympic closing ceremony. Great film too xx

  73. Tough choice I think it has to be This is Spinal Tap tho as its so funny 🙂

  74. The Blues Brothers toe tappingly good!

  75. It has to be Tommy!

  76. The Runaways – based on Joan Jett, just really enjoyed watching it, a very interesting story

  77. Spike Island (Stone Roses) was fab because it was my era 🙂

  78. Performance because I think it sums up the weirdness of stardom well.

  79. The Soggy Bottom Boys in ‘O Brother , where Art Thou’, I don’t usually listen to bluegrass but this was exceptional and really rocked

  80. Got to be the Blues Brothers, Classic Film

  81. Spice Girls the movie because they are so much fun and they represent “Girl Power”

  82. Walk the Line
