my log does not judge
I dug em both. Rockers better. I've seen lots of movies lately. Last night I saw Steve McQueen's Shame. the trailer doesn't do it justice so I don't know why i'm posting it. That being said, it is a great movie that, so far, has really stuck with me.Whether The Harder they Come is worth watching depends on whether you find that mid-70s period of Jamaican music interesting. There's a story there, but it's not much to hang on. Jimmy Cliff does a good job though. But it certainly captures what life in Jamaica looked like in those days.
It's not as good as Rockers, but realistically, neither one of them is going to be of much interest to a general move watcher who isn't into reggae.
I forgot to mention, for anyone who likes The Harder They Come and/or Rockers, The Criterion Channel has a movie from the same era, but filmed in England, called Babylon. Just like the movies shot in Jamaica, a musician plays the main role in Babylon, Brinsley Forde from Aswad.that was surprisingly good!
