speaking of horrible movies, The Human Centipede is more intriguing than the pile of feces i recently watched called, The Room. the unspeakable atrocities unleashed last night will forever be remembered for years to come. think of the most deplorable act of hatred against the human condition, then mix that with music worse than Mariah Carey on a good day, the finally top it off with a huge egotistical manifestation of smug west coast living and drugged out yuppieism and you might come close to what "the room" is all about. i've seen a lot of bad movies (Transformers 2 and A History of Violence come to mind...) but they are nothing compared to this intestinal clogging excuse for a film. i'm not going to even fathom the idea of me trying to explain the unexplainable plot, nor am i going to sit here and spend another minute on it. if any of my words are interesting you, then you must have some sort of secret desire to delve deep into the abyss. go ahead, look for this film and try it out. you might actually enjoy it!!! (no you won't you liars...)
okay then!!! let's get poppy with, The Movie Life.
the movielife is a melodic harcdore/pop punk band from long island, new york that started back in 1997 and carried on until 2003. they were often compared to bands like New Found Glory, Midtown and Save the Day and rightfully so since they are one of the early bands to help make the hardcore meets pop punk style popular. that genre is now dominated by acts like, Daggermouth, Title Fight, Four Year Strong, Fireworks, Tie Fighter, Set Your Goals, A Loss for Words and Latin for Truth among the many others. still, if it wasn't for the movielife helping to pave the way, those bands wouldn't have anybody else to ape off of. (just kiddin' you guys!!!)
so, here is the musical experience!!! i'm not posting their early demos, 7 inch, or split because i can't find the artwork, so were just gonna skip ahead to the albums. we first start with their debut titled, It's Go Time. this is then followed by my favorite of theirs called, This Time Next Year. after that we have the ep called, The Movielife Has A Gambling Problem, the follow that with their final album, Forty Hour Train Back to Penn. this final album is a real personal effort and it's a showcase into the bands, then high tension and immediate breakup. (not to mention van crash...) if you are really into these guys, you should give their newer bands a chance as well. Nightmare of You and I Am the Avalanche are both decent efforts and something to help you out, but they will never compare to the passion that the movielife left us. dig it...
tommy wiseau will be forever remembered...
