A love song to both the power of both music and determined political resistance.

December 19, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

An impassioned, funny and monumentally likable myth-making comedy.

March 26, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Technically a great biopic, but it's an even rarer and more precious animal: a great rock 'n' roll movie.

August 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Overall the feel, the music and the spirit of the biopic is a fresh take.

August 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A jubilant, exciting look at a movement known primarily for its irascible nature.

November 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Good Vibrations reminds us of the role punk music played in expressing the frustration and rage of a disenfranchised generation.

Hits them emotional high points far too early in the film and is just kinda lost interest near the end.

Another good film that set in a record store. The fact that it's based on a true story is even better.
