Eddie's comments and examples of how to play with feeling and how to 'swing' are some of the best ever. To her, these older movies are like finding a diamond in a box of Cracker Jacks. It is shot in a different time period, and from a different aspect from the first movie. Eddie's problem, as the girl recognized on the street, is that he doesn't just love music -- he's searching for musical perfection. You will enjoy this movie if you like music.
That actually played the music versus having the sounds made by machines! I really like how it should the frustration it showed. And equally mysteriously, they just accept his moods and dictatorial manner. So they practice and practice, and eventually you knew this was coming, right? Then, as the music heated up, so did the audience. In the early 1960s, legendary rock star Eddie Wilson disappeared from the limelight when he drove his car off a New Jersey bridge. He has a good day job in construction, where he seems to be a foreman, but even after so many years, music still calls to him.
The other Cruisers members share similar stories. Even better if you can watch both the original and Eddie Lives in the same weekend! For anyone who has not seen the cruiser movies they are a must see. But what if he didn't really die in that car crash? But what makes this movie is the music. Had I not known John Cafferty sang these songs, I would swear it was Michael. No, because this movie is extremely entertaining.
I think my favorite part is when Joe approaches Sal, to ask for his forgiveness. I recently found part 1 for sale and bought it. Sometimes this movie mirrors the original but than spins in its own direction. The characters are not very well rounded and the story is not very well written. How ever I thought that both movies were excellent heck the first one I liked so much that I had to go and try and find a tape or cd of the music that was played in the movie. I recommend it and if you've seen the first one you have to see this one and you might agree it is better. Davidson was getting close to rehearsals when Vance called him and said that he had found the band-- from.
Joann is a stage choreographer in , and Hopkins works in an casino. Now, as the film goes on he starts to grow into being himself, known as Eddie Wilson and chooses to reveal himself to the world. Matthew Laurance actually learned how to play the bass through rehearsals. I have played it every day sense then. We certainly hadn't told them to do that. If you like the music of the 80's, you might do the same. His relentless desire to make music pulls him back to the stage where he forms a new band and an even better sound.
They the store do international orders. The original film was more based on a story telling on what happened before Eddie Wilson had supposedly died. I don't care whose music it sounded like, it reminds us all of more fun times. Then why does the Statue of Liberty face the other way? I also enjoyed the soundtrack to the movie. I just want to watch a movie and not think about the climax of the movie.
Eddie or I should say Joe West witnesses all the publicity of the original Eddie and The Cruisers and feels emotional over everything. The album that the record label would not release in 1969, because the execs thought the tracks were trash, are now thought to be a work of genius. Like, when I'd go, I'd think--I like to make a movie where I know who the boss is. His love for creating and playing music is as strong as ever, and he eventually begins to play some here and there, till he one night plays at a bar where a sax player actually recognizes him or his music style. First off, you cannot compare this to the first movie.
From then on i have always loved the movies. The first time i seen it,was when i was a kid. This movie allows that to happen. It is a good movie that tells the story of Eddie's fight to conceal his identity, but making it harder is the fact that his music has once again become popular, and there are tapes he made of music that was never released, as well as music he sang and played with other musicians. The film gives Eddie a love interest in the person of an artist who approaches him on the street, asking if she could paint his portrait because his face is so intriguing -- that of a guy forever looking for something he can't have, she says. Even though this was made in the 80's, there is no disco, no rap, and none of what passes for music today.
