20. Notorious

Director:George Tillman Jr.
Released Year:2009
Cast:Terrence Howard, & Anthony Anderson
Genre:Drama/Musical
IMDB Ratings:6.7
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:52%
Currently Steaming On:Hulu, Amazon Prime Videos

This effective biopic, headed at George Tillman Jr., describes the Notorious B.I.G.’s too short growth as one of the most experienced rappers and its terrible assassination in 1997 when he was 24. But it gets too many little things incorrect, whether Angela Bassett’s flutters like Violetta Wallace in Jamaica; or Biggie’s scenes of “Big Poppa,” which peaked at Number 1 on Billboard charts before the horrific 2Pac shooting of Quad Studios on November 30, 1994. Furthermore, rapper and first-time actor Jamal “Gravy” Woolard is not nearly skilled enough to make a full movie, but he does an appropriate job of capturing the famous charm of Biggie. That’s why it is one of the best movies about music.

19. Rock Star

Director:Stephen Herek
Released Year:2001
Cast:Mark Wahlberg & Jennifer Aniston
Genre:Comedy/Musical
IMDB Ratings:6.3
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:53%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

Stephen Herek directed Rock Star and aired it in 2001. It’s a comedic drama picture, even if it’s somewhat severe. We all know the many ancient bands, like yes, Journey and Judas Priest, who must locate a new vocalist and wrestle a singer from her finest album cover band. One of these singers is following this film. It has several musicians, such as Zakk Wylde and Jeff Pilson. Trust or not, this film was a box office catastrophe, losing around 37 million dollars. Six songs from the band, Steel Dragon, feature in the soundtrack. So, it is one of the best Movies about music.

18. The Runaways

Director:Floria Sigismondi
Released Year:2010
Cast:Terrence Howard & Anthony Anderson (Black-ish Season 7)

IMDB Ratings:6.5
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:69%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

Biopics live or die on their shows, and Floria Sigismondi has two explosive ones in the early days of Kristen Stewart’s pioneering all-female rock band Kim Fowley. Fowley gathered the group and joyously exploited their jail-bear appeal, nevertheless, Jett and her bandmates successfully took over control of the hands of Svengali. They were a fine line between exploitation and power. The movie was released before the band’s latter-day bassist, Jacqueline Fuchs a.k.a. Jackie Fox went public with allegations that Fowley had drugged and raped her; Fuchs is not a character in the film.

17. 8 Mile

Director:Curtis Hanson
Released Year:2002
Cast:Eminem, Brittany Murphy, Kim Basinger
Genre:Drama/Musical
IMDB Ratings:7.1
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:75%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

This film about Detroit’s young, white rapper partly reflects the real story of Eminem (actual name Marshall Mathers III), the controversial artist, who also plays the character. It’s the music in 8 miles that sells it, one of the finest to grace a soundtrack ever, although the movie is impressive. The film’s soundtrack arrived at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 when it was released, and eventually became the sixth bestseller of the year with the Academy Award for Best Original Song for the now classer Lose Yourself. That’s why we put this movie on our list to be the best movie on music.

In Walk the Line, a biography of the life and time of one of country music‘s most strong voices, the early days of Johnny Cash are represented beautifully. The film focuses mostly on Cash’s ascent to stardom, with an insight into the man in black and many of his most classical compositions, as he sets out Joaquin Phoenix as Cash and Reese Witherspoon (who won the Academy award for Best Actress) as his wife and friend, June. It is one of the good movies on music.

Henson, Ludacris, Isaac Hayes, Haystack, JuicyJ. It has received a large number of prizes and nominations, including the Best Actor, that it cannot be enumerated. The sequences you see the group creating a song from the ground up are very great, including the beat development. The entire film is fantastic, and only for the sequences, particularly when you are a musician or have been composing rap songs, it’s worth seeing.

14. The Blues Brothers

Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

This movie is only one of Christopher Guest’s several musical mockumentaries. Returning to the film, Guest directed a hiloquent mockumentary series, including A Mighty Wind in 2003, with 1996 Waiting for Guffman. The narrative presents three diverse groups of folk artists, inviting them to celebrate the passing of a folk producer on stage. Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara, the erstwhile lovebird couple, are the primary cast of the movie. The film is an exercise of American folks and has many hippie-like features; yet, it is the clear admiration and enthusiasm of the audience for the genre that makes it stand out. In A Kiss’s performance at the end of the Rainbow, viewers may perceive the truth in this Statement in the concluding moments. This is really one of the most wonderful movies about music.

12. Sid and Nancy

Director:Alex Cox
Released Year:1986
Cast:Gary Oldman (Mank), Chloe Webb, David Hayman
Genre:Musical/Drama
IMDB Ratings:7.0
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:88%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

Sid and Nancy is one of the first major films to take on the genre of punk rock and give Gary Oldman his first-ever lead. This film takes viewers through the love story and deaths of legendary Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious (Oldman) and girlfriend Nancy Spungen (Chloe Webb). We watch as Sid and Nancy meet for the first time in London, fall in love (and heroin), and embark on a United States tour. We also learn that Sid has failed to begin a solo music career (Oldman is worth the great version of Frank Sinatra’s My Way alone). In each of its individual roles, Oldman and Web are the wonderful combinations for a strong, complicated, and apocalyptic romantic story.

11. Rocketman

Director:Dexter Fletcher
Released Year:2019
Cast:Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden
Genre:Musical/Drama
IMDB Ratings:7.3
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:89%
Currently Steaming On:Netflix

While some may label Rocketman a biography, Taron Egerton who plays Sir Elton John in the movie, labels the picture “a fantasy musical.” Film creators blur the trends between reality and fiction shamelessly since Elton John fans should not be loaded with fresh facts as the objective of the movie. Rocketman covers the highs and the lowest things in the life of his subject through John’s decades of hits. For instance, when performing I Want Love, you experience the shattering loneliness of the singer’s childhood home. Rocketman is a great, forceful and over-the-top homage to one of our finest living singer-songwriters.

10. Love & Mercy

Director:Bill Pohlad
Released Year:2014
Cast:John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks
Genre:Drama/Music
IMDB Ratings:7.4
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:89%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

This movie is a must-see for lovers of the musical masterminds of the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson. Love & Mercy is the mental breakdown and restoration of the singer and songwriter, after Wilson’s younger (played by Paul Dano) and middle-aged (Cusack) portions in the sixties and eighties. The 1960s revisit Wilson’s well-known tactics with the recording of Pet Sounds, showing the forward-looking sense of one of the most fascinating talents of pop music. That’s why we put this movie on our list of best movies about music.

9. Straight Outta Compton

Director:F. Gary Gray
Released Year:2015
Cast:O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell
Genre:Drama/Crime
IMDB Ratings:7.8
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:89%
Currently Steaming On:Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos

Released Year:2000
Cast:Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit, Kate Hudson
Genre:Drama/Music
IMDB Ratings:7.1
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:89%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

It is a semi-autobiographical narrative based on a fascinating and funny sight of the chaotic ‘70s rocky scene by Cameron Crowe’s adolescent Rolling Stone journalist, who embeds him in an up-and-coming classical rock band. It’s the soundtrack is great, as predicted, for the film including a classical person, from Simon & Garfunkel to Led Zeppelin.

Released Year:2018
Cast:Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott
Genre:Romance/Musical
IMDB Ratings:7.6
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:90%
Currently Steaming On:Netflix

The premise of Star Is Born is not new. It is the third restoration of the love drama of 1937 but the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper demonstrates that it is not the tale that matters. This is how you say it. Like Ally, a young singer-songwriter who is a hard-to-drink country-music player, 80s music artist Lady Gaga proves she can hang out with veterans such as Cooper and Sam Elliott and won the Academy Prize for Best Original Song, while Shallow, one of the biggest music performances ever performing in Oscar history, has won a breakout film.

6. High Fidelity

Director:Stephen Frears
Released Year:2000
Cast:John Cusack, Iben Hjejle, Todd Louiso
Genre:Romance /Comedy
IMDB Ratings:7.5
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:91%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

High Fidelity is another masterpiece of Cusack, who revives his former love relationships by the Gregarius actor as a musical obsessive discotheque owner in Chicago. An amazing ensemble, supplemented by performers such as Lisa Bonet and Jock Black, includes classical works of great songwriters like The Kinks and Bob Dylan but also spotlights lesser-known bands like the 13th Floor Elevators and the Beta Band (but highly adored). Its overall story makes it a good movie with music.

Genre:Drama/Music
IMDB Ratings:7.5
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:92%

The star of the performance is Oscar Issac, with musicians like Justin Timberlake, Chris Thile and Marcus Mumford. This film (like other Coen brothers’ efforts) was highly criticized, resulting in the nominations for Best Sound Mixing Oscar and Best Original Song Golden Globe. But overall, it is one of the best music movies.

4. Amadeus

Director:Milos Forman (One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest)
Released Year:1984
Cast:F. Murray Abraham, Tom Hulce, Elizabeth Berridge
Genre:Drama/Epic
IMDB Ratings:7.5
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:93%

In this production of Peter Shaffer’s play of the same name, the story of musical prodigy Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart receives a large dosage of drama. This highly praised picture earned eight Academy Awards and 32 other prizes in different categories – including the Grammys – when it was released by Mozart (Tom Hulce) and the former Italian musician Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham). The inspirational movie Amadeus performs well in several of Mozart’s pieces performed perfectly by the Fields Chamber Orchestra by the St. Martin Academy of London. Overall, it is one of the best movies on music.

3. This is Spinal Tap

Director:Rob Reiner
Released Year:1984
Cast:Rob Reiner, Michael McKean, Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer
Genre:Musical/Comedy
IMDB Ratings:7.9
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:95%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

Spinal Tap is an American movie co-composed by Rob Reiner on his cinema debut in 1984. Spinal Tap is widely considered as one of the greatest (if not one of the very best) mockumentary movies in the fictional British heavy metal band. The entire album was created with original content, and it was played afterward. Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight and Gimme Some Money did not so subtly dig into the generic condition of big-label rock in the early 1980s. The movie satirizes rock band behavior, musical pretensions, and hagiographical inclinations.

2. The Pianist

Director:Roman Polanski
Released Year:2002
Cast:Terrence Howard, & Anthony Anderson
Genre:War/Drama
IMDB Ratings:8.2
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:95%
Currently Steaming On:Netflix

You need not be aware much about his celebrated career as a concert pianist in the Holocaust, Wladyslaw Sziplman, to become touched by his terrible portrayal of his survival in the Warsaw ghetto. Directed and based on Roman Polanski’s late Jewish autobiography, Adrien Brody embodies Polish composer’s struggle to preserve his artistry in years of terrible scenes, from his family’s desperate observation of a work camp to his gifts as a pianist to try, even when he trembles of malnutrition and jaundice, to convince a Nazi officer to spare his life. Brody’s haunting portrait won him Best Actor’s 2003 Oscar. The pianist may not display much current music, but he still is one of the greatest movies ever made in classical music.

1. Once

Director:John Carney
Released Year:2007
Cast:Glen Hansard, Markéta Irglová, Hugh Walsh
Genre:Musical/Romance
IMDB Ratings:7.8
Rotten Tomatoes Ratings:97%
Currently Steaming On:Amazon Prime Videos

Once (2007) was a Romantic Irish music theatre film by John Carney, written in 2007. The film performs in Dublin, Ireland, as two artists fighting against Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. The first music of Hansard and Irglová as the Swell Season, composing and playing the original songs of the film. A romantic musical about a busking songwriter who works as a vacuum repairman, Once was the darling of both music and film critics when it hit screens, helping to launch the careers of real-life musicians/co-stars Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. Shot on a shoestring budget, the film earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2008 for Falling Slowly.

Conclusion!

These films, of course, are considerably more than spin-offs: a decent biography or documentary can revive the songs and enlighten their composers’ tribulations. Music biopics are a true genre, and there is no hint that they are becoming more or less popular.  So we’re counting down our choices for the 20 Best movies about music which are chosen by Musicians. You can stream these movies even on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or on Disney+.
