"This Is Spinal Tap" is one of our favorite movies. It is a rockumentary about a heavy metal rock band from the late 60's and early 70's that is now having troubles staying cool in the 80's. Directed by Rob Reiner and starring Michael McKeon (David St. Hubbins), Harry Shearer (Derek Smalls) and Christopher Guest (Nigel Tuffnel) this movie is one that you'll want to watch 100's of times. Millions of one liners.
Intravenus De Milo 1974
(Intravenus De Milo review) The cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth rate of the band cannot even be charted---they are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry.

***Note*** If you go to the video store and ask for "Spinal Tap", and the clerk is a loser and needs computer assistance for every title, they will say that the movie isn't in because the actual title is "This Is Spinal Tap". Quality video stores carry this title.
