Music Movies to Binge on During the Holidays

Holidays are a time to relax and indulge in your passions. Don’t lie, we know that yours is the music! For this, here are some of the titles not to be missed to enjoy the Christmas holidays to the fullest! The list doesn’t include only music documentaries and biopics, but also music themed movies and animated movies!

Before reading, go to the comments and tell us which one you would suggest! And don’t forget to let us know which one was your favourite!

(Rock) Classics and non-: Get Back, Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocket Man,  The Dirt, The Runaways, Bo Burnham, Crazy Heart

With the recent release of the documentary film “The Beatles: Get back”, Disney Plus gives us a return to the 60s (for the precursor to 69) and to the path that led to the release of the Get Back albums. Absolutely not to be missed!

If what interests you is a moving film that makes you shed all your tears, you can’t miss the Oscar award “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Biopic par excellence, the film tells the rise and evolution of the rock band “Queen” until the death of singer Freddy Mercury. A must to watch, even for those who have already seen it.

Then there’s “Rocket Man,” the biographical musical fantasy drama film based on the life and music of Elton John. This is another movie you don’t want to miss out on experiencing. Love, loneliness, addiction, sexuality are just some of the multiple themes explored in the movie. The second biopic that we propose has completely different characteristics: “sex, drugs and rock n roll” perfectly represent Motley Crue’s biopic, “Dirt.”

Some other movies you don’t want to miss are Respect (on Aretha Franklin), 8 Mile, All Eyez On Me, The RunawaysBo Burnham and Crazy Heart.

Music movies: Lady Gaga’s, A Star Is Born, August Rush,

As for the must-see music themed films, we have many to recommend! Lady Gaga in “A Star Is Born” is certainly the first. Released in 2018, the film follows Ally, a girl who almost gave up her dream of becoming a singer until she meets Jackson.

We also recommend “August Rush.” The film is about August, a ten-year-old orphan with a very keen talent for music. The film features an exceptional cast, with names including Freddie Highmore, Robin Williams, Johnathan Rhys Myer and Keri Russel. We also recommend “Yesterday” (fantasy film based on Beatles music).

Animated movies: SING 1 & 2, Soul, Coco.

There are also several possibilities when it comes to animated films! Starting with the 2016 film “Sing” to its (just released) sequel, “Sing 2.” The first movie was about the development of a talent show, directed by almost failed koala Buster Moon that tries to involve the citizens by holding a singing contest. The second movie continues in the narration of the events of the protagonists.
Even Pixar did not miss out on films inspired by the “music” theme. “Soul” is a movie where Joe, director of a middle school band, dreams of playing in a prestigious New York club. After 20 years of trying, he finally manages to get an evening, despite a life-changing inconvenience.
On the other hand, “Coco” tells of the adventures of Miguel, a child who embarks on a journey to the land of his ancestors precisely to fulfill his forbidden dream: to become a musician.

Hoping these movies give you some great music memories for this holiday season!
