Movie Info

Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee -- better known as The Ramones -- changed the course of rock history with their rebellious punk ethos and minimalist approach to songwriting, and in the process became counterculture icons. "End of the Century" follows the Queens kids from their earliest underground gigs in the 1970s to their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, featuring rare archive concert footage and candid interviews with the band members.

Audience Reviews for End of the Century

  • Apr 06, 2010
    I am just a fan of this band and I will always respect them for their music, their attitude, their sense of humour and above all they cheer me up when I am down and this film just made me feel even closer to them. The documentary is quite strong giving a history of the Ramones during their early years, especially the 1970s and their involvement with CBGB's and their influence on the London punk rock scene, however, the second half of the film delves much more into the band's personal relationships with each other than the actual music that they created and several albums are not even mentioned. After I watched the impression that I got was that The Ramones were a unplanned phenomenon that invented punk as we know it, even though they never achieved commercial success in the US (at least on the level they thought they deserved). A stunning movie about one of the greatest bands ever Ramones but in fact also the story of many other bands?

    A four star from a man who hates movies about bands? Yes indeed because it is the Ramones we are talking about. I was curious going in and hooked throughout. A nice job.
