    All the ones listed are great, but I was blown away by this one:

    "In Search of Beethoven:

    Not only is it a terrific exploration of Beethoven's life and musical history, there are incredible performances by many of the finest Beethoven interpreters/orchestras in the world, and interviews with the conductors and players as to why they're interpreting the music as they are.

    It's really fascinating and wonderful.

    Then again, it's hard to beat "Hard Day's Night."
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    How can you not vote for this?


    I recently watched The Buddy Holly Story and liked that a lot. I haven't seen Hard Day's Night, I'll have to check that out. Was never a Beatles guy growing up and didn't get into them til later.

    How about Bird? Great flick. For those that dont know its Clint Eastwood as director with Forest Whitaker playing Charlie Parker.

    Also, I think they did a great job with Ray.

    I voted for Spinal Tap.

    But only because "Kiss Meets The Phantom Of The Park" wasn't a choice.

    I agree, maybe. Are we talking about the one with Britney Spears, or the one with the Karate Kid and Steve Vai?

    I really liked August Rush. It is worth it just for the bit where the orphan first plays a guitar, but there are a number of other excellent moments in it.

    The Muppet Movie (at least my daughters thought so).

    Although "We're on a mission from God" is tough to beat...(I'll spare you the 106 miles to Chicago line), "A Hard Day's Night" gets my vote. I watch it several times a year.
