Critic Reviews for The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle
[The Great Rock N Roll Swindle is] a document of a particular time and place, a rarified work of scrap art that creates as many myths as it debunks.
a delirious hodge-podge that makes The Filth and the Fury, Temple's later "documentary" about the band, look perfectly staid
A document that proves all the cynics right
Audience Reviews for The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle
The Great Rock N Roll Swindle is] a document of a particular time and place, a rarified work of scrap art that creates as many myths as it debunks.
A very weird movie... it tries to be so punk and so different from other music films that it just alienates its audience and confuses you. There are a few amusing scenes, and it's full of famous punk rockers like Sid Vicious, so if you're really into punk music you may want to check this out. If not, stay away from it. For the most part it's pretty dull, but it's not a complete waste if, like I said, you enjoy punk styles and unconventional movies.
[b]The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D[/b] [img]http://www.blackfilm.com/i3/movies/s/sharkboy/002_l.jpg[/img] Good enough kiddy fare. I'm sure I would love this film if I was about 10 years younger. The 3-D was pretty cool though, although it took away from the look of the film.

Much, much better than "Sid and Nancy." Any die-hard fans of old school punk should make it a priority to see this film. Plus, I mean, you get to see Malcolm McLaren's dick.

Turns out, this movie fucking blows beyond all comprehension.
