    What a great, quirky movie!!! I had never heard of Pirate Radio and a friend recommended it.It is absolutely one of the best movies I have seen in years!

    The soundtrack is fantastic. I bought it on ITunes right after I saw the movie. The performances are wonderful...Philip Seymore Hoffman and the rest of the cast don't disappoint. The movie storyline is based on fact. Apparently, rock and roll was banned by British radio in the 60's. So a ship parked itself right outside British waters and broadcast rock and roll 24 hours a day as an "underground" radio station. The script is offbeat and hysterically funny. I loved the movie so much that I bought it for a friend and she loved it just as much as I did. This movie is a MUST SEE!!

    A Slice of Time

    This movie relates a little known time in British history. I think the notion that the government might try to control the type of music to which people have access is one that most U.S. audiences will find strange. There certainly were "culture wars" over rock and roll music in the U.S. in the 1950's and 1960's, but the radio stations that played rock were not often censored by the government. Thus, the basic "conflict" in the story is difficult for U.S. audiences to relate to.

    Nevertheless, the soundtrack is amazing and the performances (especially Phillip Seymour Hoffmans's) are first rate.

    I saw this in the theater and could not wait to get in on blue ray dvd. This movie is just so much fun to watch. It has a great sound track, the music is really awesome. You want to just get up and dance - at least at home you can do that. It's also hysterical! I love Phillip Seymore Hoffmam, Bill Nighy and Rhys Ifans. They all do a terrific job in this movie. This movie was made by the same people who made Love Actually, another favorite of mine. The British make some of the best comedies. This may not win any awards, but if you want to listen to some good music and enjoy yourself for 2 hours, this is the right movie for you.
