Movie Reviews

Nice surprise!

"Saw this movie at the Hollywood Forever graveyard of all places. It was during an outdoor tribute screening. I was not aware of the band's music as I never heard their music before I had seen the movie, but a friend brought me and I must say that I was easily hooked. The songs are great and pretty catchy. The girls have a great attitude - and I loved their tattoos! It was sad watching the story unfold, I guess 'cause I felt like I just met them and didn't want to see her go. If you know the L.A. music scene at all you will recognize some of the people. Duff from Guns n' Roses is in the film, too - he produced one of their records. Vanilla Ice killed me. Ice gets major props for his honesty --I won't give away spoilers, that would be cheating. All in all, the film is a great mix of high art and high drama, with a whole lotta rock and roll. I'm trying to think of movies to compare it to but can't right now - which is a good thing. It's an original and it's real, which is nice for a change.."
Already one of my prized possessions

"This film is in a class all by itself. Women in rock are often unrecoginzed and unappreciated. This true story follows the lives of women who break the gender rules and give the men a run for their money. Strong, courageous, highly talented women who put together a one-of-a-kind sound storm the stage and the road with such intensity, you'll wish to God you had a chance to see them perform today. The mere existence of this footage is a gift. The way it's put together is an art. Whether you're a fan of women in rock or just a fan of great stories, I highly recommend this film."
Are you ready?

"I'm a sucker for rocumentaries and this one takes the cake. No flashy stadiums or tour buses here. These girls rock out across the country van style with Marshalls in tow. All the best road dog pranks and madness you can imagine. This film is both hilarious and heart wrenching at the same time. It must have been fun..."
Rocking Good Movie

"Surprisingly heartfelt documentary for a flick about bad ass rocker chicks! Incredible insight into the music industry as well as the hardships of being in a band. Doesn't back off from showing the ugly side of the relationships, addictions, or tragedy. This is a must for anyone who is a music fan."
