Screener Squad: The Dirt

The Dirt Movie Review


We are a little behind on this review, but hear us out. We were out late at this crazy party and then someone decided that we all needed a bump. And well…we saw this movie and felt totally vindicated for our life decisions!

In Netflix’s adaptation of the outlandish book, Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) takes us through the career highlights of Mötley Crüe, the rock band that are as famous for their inspired sound as they were infamous for their debauchery-driven lifestyle. The film has a Rashomon-like narration driven by the band members Nikki Six (Douglas Booth), Vince Neil (Daniel Webber), Tommy Lee (Machine Gun Kelly) and Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), This was a band more interested in sex and drugs than the music, and eventually the consequences of their actions rain down on their heads. Will rock and roll win out at the end of the day? Bradly and Justin decide to follow the band on tour for this review and…well, they have some thoughts about what they saw. They were fascinated, entertained, confused, and downright horrified by what they watched. Oh and there was also a rock biopic sandwiched somewhere within all of that. Listen here to find out what they thought in-depth.
