Movie Info

In the Australian suburb of Newtown, Freddy (Kick Gurry) and his girlfriend, Tanya (Pia Miranda), are in a band with their friends Lucy (Chris Sadrinna) and Joe (Brett Stiller). While Freddy is passionate about music, the rest of the band -- including their bumbling manager, Bruno (Russell Dykstra) -- is less enthused. After they seek out big-time producer Shad Kern (Marton Csokas), the band's future looks promising, but bickering and straying lovers threaten to derail their success.

    I stumbled upon this film on IFC when I was bored, looking for a movie. I missed about 15 minutes of it but what kept me on the channel was the song. I think the soundtrack is the best thing about this movie. Besides having a few laughs in between. The movie is about a band that isn't that good but still living the dream of making it big. They all love each other and are just trying to make it big. The dinner scene with her parents was pretty funny and I'm still confused, was the girl taking a bath in blood real or not? Anyways, if you stumble upon this movie I say give it a go!

    Imagine Trainspotting developed into a network TV show, then sold to HBO at the last minute so they could add swearing. Also the tag line, "what if you finally got your big break, and you just plain sucked?" totally spoils the movie. Imagine the tag line for planet of the apes being "what if you found a planet inhabited by monkeys, and it turned out it was Earth?"

    Spectacular Aussie comedy on sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Pia Miranda's cool in her 'angry management' performance.

    [font=Century Gothic][color=darkorange]Alex Proyas is mostly known for being a director of such cool fantasy films as "The Crow" and "Dark City". So, it would seem like "Garage Days" is quite a departure for him because it is a relatively modest film about a wanna-be rock band in Sydney, Australia. But when I thought about it, it didn't seem like that different a movie after all because the characters are having this rock and roll fantasy. Even more telling is that Proyas cannot get away from using digital effects.[/color][/font] [font=Century Gothic][color=#ff8c00]"Garage Days" is almost a good movie. It has a likable, young cast playing the band members but there is too much going on that has little to do with the actually playing of music.(We really don't get to see them playing until the end of the picture or ever know what the name of the band is. The first thing anybody always comes up with is the name of the band.) That's where the movie derails - some of the plot strands work, but one is frankly bizarre and another suffers from every romantic cliche in the book. I liked the ending, even though there is a deus ex machina lurking in there somewhere. [/color][/font]
