Movie Music Mondays: Singles and Giveaway Info

One Sentence Review: A decent flick about being a 20 something in the early 90s with a lot of flannel and such, set against the backdrop of the Seattle grunge music scene.

Full Review: I tried to write one, but this one is much better.

Soundtrack: The soundtrack is a must for anyone who loves the grunge tunes of the early 90s. The best part is that a lot of these guys actually have cameos in the flick. And look at this scene...Chris Cornell still has long hair. Amazing.

You Could Fast Forward Through: I love this movie. Don't fast forward through any of it.

You Have To Watch: I love the drunk phone call that Campbell Scott's character does from the bar. So hilarious. And, well, you have to watch it all to see all the cameos by the guys from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, etc. Here are a couple of scenes for you.

So there it is. Onto the giveaway details. Here are the rules:

The contest will run until September 15th at midnight...eastern style. I'm from NY, I can't wait for you west coasters. A girl has to sleep. It is open to residents of the United States, only.

  5. I need to see this movie because I never did when it came out (I was in college then), and I've recently (re)discovered a lot of these bands. I feel like I'm totally missing out!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. I would love to see this movie, because it seems like the perfect dinner and a movie combination to watch with my best friend. We love watching older movies like this together. I bet the soundtrack is rockin'!
