I think the most important thing I can tell you before you see this movie is that it is NOTHING like 'This is Spinal Tap'. The fact that the word 'hilarious' is written three separate times on the cover of the DVD shows that who ever did the marketing for this movie 1) did not watch the film 2) has a poor vocabulary.
That being said, I think this movie is worth watching at least once. (The replay value is a little low.)
Like 'This is Spinal Tap', 'Hard Core Logo' is also a mock documentary. But instead of being so preposterous that it's funny, the characters are heartbreakingly realistic. From the moment Joe Dick sets out on this road-trip, things begin to spiral downward, leading inevitably to the last scene. I do not thing this movie could have ended any other way.
I did not think 'Hard Core Logo' was an easy film to watch, but it did leave me thinking about it a day later.
There were a few funny moments, but this movie was not a comedy, not even a dark comedy. Although the characters all seem to be experiences various form of narcosis, instead of laughing, I felt pity.
This movie is about how the band members of 'Hard Core Logo' refuse to lose gracefully. No quiet 'Crossing the Bar' for them. And their leader, Joe Dick, would only settle for blood and flames.

Hard Core Logo (the first film) was an absolute masterpiece in Canadian film making. Bruce does an excellent job at putting together a believable mockmentary. The cast works well together, and Hugh Dillon uses his music prowess to the benefit of the soundtrack. Do not expect this to be anything but a dark comedy, and satire of punk music and the documentary film industry.

Hard Core Logo 2, while a great film, I hate to say was not to the same level as the first. However the inclusion of Care Failure and her band Die Mannequin made it an interesting film. Worth the watch and since it comes with the first film for a great price you can't get any better.

Ce film à petit budget est un bijou. Très bon, bien fait, intelligent et très drôle, cette satire d'un groupe punk mythique est à voir absolument!!!

I really loved this movie. It takes no prisoners as it follows a punk band who's leader refuses to "sell out". While this has a lot of funny parts it is not a pure comedy as we follow the band behind the scenes and the politics and egos etc. Spinal Tap for punk bands.

Hugh Dillon is great as the role of Joe Dick and PIPEFITTER is an absolute blatter buster with his no nonsense on track minded conversations. This band is cool and a director documents a benefit tour they are doing of a man who was never really hurt and living quite fine! So it all comes back to them in the end and everything goes downward. It's your typical rock and roll movie but it is definitely a classic and if your into music or into movies with some good dialogue than this one is for you. Last time I remember it was very hard to get the soundtrack to this movie but the hardcore edition gives you a nice new copy of the soundtrack with a booklet of the whole shibaggin history of the making of the films. I am pretty sure that Quentin Tarantino actually has nothing to do with the ACTUAL MAKING OF THE FILM! But his name is even on the HARDCORE EDITION so I'm sure he gave some help in distributing and making of the HARDCORE and DVD versions of the films and the many others that are appearing on the shelves with his name on it!(what a guy) Anyways it's a good movie and if your into a little cool collectible for your DVD collection and if your Canadian than you should definitely look this one up!

I was at the Sudbury Film Festival (Cinefest) in 1996 when this film was premiered and the crowd went nuts! As Bruce McDonald introduced his film everyone in the packed theatre knew they were in for a treat.
The film is not high budget, but it makes up for it in the intense character development. Hugh Dillon, frontman for the Canadian Punk Band The Headstones does a great job as Joe Dick, the lead singer for Hard Core Logo, who convinces the band to go on one last tour after reuniting to support punk legend Bucky Height after an unfortunate accident.
The music is real, underground punk music the way The Headstones play it every time they hit the stage. The music and the characters are so real that you will forget by the end that you are watching a mock-umentary. This movie is probably one of the best movies based around the music scene and is perfect for fans of real cinema and real music!
I still have the shirt, poster and promo pins that Bruce McDonald (director) gave me after the movie when I met him and thanked him for such a great film. Check it out... it's a movie that will stay with you for a long time!
