    I watched the movie about two years ago and i thought it was pretty fun."Was tun, wenn's brennt?"(What to do in case of fire?) is also good.

    It's a great movie, but it is probubly the worst depiction of the punk scene I have ever seen. A good movie that tells more so what the punk scene is all about, or more so how it starts is Suburbia.

    A fun flick, but with a few notable historical inaccuracies.

    NGNM85: it's called 'suspension of disbelief' it makes movies more enjoyable...just sayin...I used to be hyper critical too....let it go, let it go...

    and by the way Wonder, the best part for me was when I noticed a small stencil of Battalion of Saints painted on his leather as he's talking to his dad about why he's not going to be a lawyer with his huge fake blue mohawk... that leather had to belong to a real punk....

    suburbia is a piece of shit that makes all punks look like violent drunken morons, a way worse portrayal of the punk scene then just about any movie or anything i've ever seen, it's even worse then when talk shows did warning shows about the scene back in the day. not to mention some of the worst acting i've ever seen, a barely there plot, encouragment of homophobia, and an ending that that seems like they were out of ideas. The only redeeming factor is the band performances, and other then TSOL, the bands aren't all that great either.

    slc punk looks like true art cinema in contrast.

    the guy that made the movie was a punk in his younger years and made it about the people he grew up with

    Suburbia isn't all about the direct stereotype as SLC punk is. Even though 'punks' shouldn't be homophobic, or act so much as how the kids in suburbia do. There is still kids out there who act like that. The main character in the film is just a young angry kid looking for something. He is himself, he is not political in any way. He is just seeking something new. He is himself, probubly how every other kid who got into the scene here also. There is exceptions. But those are the reasons. Yes, these kids are rediculous, and drunk. But I don't feel as if the punk scene should be depicted as a lie or something I don't like as SLC punk is. It may be sad to see these kids in suburbia, but it's the truth, I may not be like these kids, maybe you arn't either but that's how it was and started

    I haven't seen "Suburbia" in a while, but I don't remember it being THAT bad (maybe I'll have to watch it again). It's definitely not a masterpiece by any means, though.

    I dislike SLC Punk. I don't think it has much to offer except classic stereotypes. The only part I thought mattered was when heroine bob died, because he was the only person in the movie who wasn't a total douchebag/ (maybe that guy with glasses too, I can't remember).

    And then the movie ends with the main character becoming a lawyer and saying punks a joke. Eh, I thought that kinda sucked.

    I love Suburbia though.

    I'm fully capable of suspending my disbelief, that's how I am able to enjoy films like Aliens, the ReAnimator, The Lost Boys, etc. However, this is supposed to reflect something that actually happened as opposed to a fantastical premise, and, thus, I hold it to a different standard. This is, however, symptomatic of a greater problem; that the portrayals of punk rock in cinema have been decidedly sub-par. The examples that leap to mind, Suburbia, SLC Punk, Sid & Nancy, and maybe Repo Man are all seriously flawed. (Although I do own and enjoy all of these films.) The only decent cinematic treatment of punk rock I can think of is in documentaries, especially the excellent, but unfortunately-named, "Punk: Attitude" by Don Letts.

    This is one of the things that bothered me. First of all the Anarcho-punk element wasn’t as pronounced on this side of the Atlantic, especially around ’85 when it was supposed to have taken place, but for all his statements the main character doesn’t seem to have the slightest clue as to what Anarchism means. You would think even from Crass and Conflict lyrics he might pick up a little bit more than what he says in the script.

    It was an entertaining flick at least. Then again my taste in films is what most would consider piss-poor. (Troma Trash and Italian Giallo Garbage.)

    Yeah the comments are...annoying, but anyway im not sure which film NGNM was talking about there. I may not remember correctly but i think at one point in SLC Punk! (i think when heroin bob dies) steve-o even admits he was nothing but a poser.

    Steve-o's mohawk wasnt fake. I know this first hand because of an interview with the director. That scene was actually the first scene that was shot. He had a cap on the sides because they werent completely shaven like it shows, but the hair standing up is real. The cap does make it look fake though.

    The director stated that matt lillard had just finish shooting a movie at the time where he was a hippy with long hair (not scooby doo) and just died it blue, shot that scene, then cut it short to have short blue hair the rest of the film.

    What? and you know this because you read it right? Anarcho-Punk (or Peace-Punk as it was known then) was in full swing on the west coast and around the U.S. in 1985. I have literally hundreds of flyers from '83 to '86 that document Anarcho-Punk bands and shows around the country. So what exactly are you talking about?
