Win Limited Edition GREEN ROOM T-Shirt In Our Competition


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.

About Bat 7960 Articles
I 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: Always Sometimes Monsters and The Witcher


  1. 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 ????

  2. 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.

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

  4. Rock of Ages.

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

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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….

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. ‘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.

  21. 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!

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

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

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

  25. My favourite was ‘Detroit Rock City’, anything that covers KISS songs in movie form has to be on to a winner!
