Movie Review of the Week — Pirate Radio

Pirate Radio is a British film and a true story about one of the most exciting periods in Rock ‘n’ Roll starting in the late 60s and early 70s with a group of outlaw disc jockeys who broadcast Rock ‘n’ Roll to Britain from a boat off the coast. The film has fun acting and strong conflicts between the characters. It’s well directed by a talented director with comedy and a touch of nostalgia. It’s brilliant, hilarious, easy to follow, has funny jokes all around, and full of fantastic music that brings back memories from that time. The songs really capture the true spirit, the soul even of the 1960s, a music era I really enjoyed despite it being before my time and very different from the artists of today.

It is one of the coolest movies that I’ve seen in a long time with such fun and excitement going on that you don’t even notice it’s been 2hrs in passing. The only disturbing part is when the government is trying to shut the boat down in their misguided efforts to control an art form. Like any government, they try to create laws for simple things which aren’t meant to be regulated. Besides this, Pirate Radio is definitely well worth to watching.
