DVD Tuesday Walk Hard This Is Spinal Tap and A Mighty Wind I got the music in me Its the first day of 2008 and Im more than a little surprised that the musical biopic parody Walk Hard The Dewey Cox Story is tanking so dismally Make no mistake I think its a flawed comedy but when its cooking its flat-out brilliant And it got me to thinking about one of my favorite music-business send-ups of all time A Mighty Wind 2003I dont inherently love parody especially not the lazy bone-stupid kind of parody epitomized by the sorry likes of the Scary Movie franchise But A Mighty Wind is a worthy successor to the granddaddy of all music-parody pictures the utterly brilliant This Is Spinal Tap 1984 Which should come as no surprise given that A Mighty Winds writer director and multitalented performer Christopher Guests rsum goes back to yes Spinal Tap A Mighty Wind chronicles the staging of a memorial concert in honor of pioneering folk-music impre read more
