The idea of movies that rock clicks a sensor in the brain that makes you sit down, shut up and watch. This weekend I saw a movie the definitely rocked and thought we would talk about these movies for a Monday water cooler.

Lets start by getting into the subject, "movies that rock." First off, a movie that rocks has to show its credentials before setting foot on stage. If we are going to give it two hours of our life, it should have a rich history of rock and the basics, including women, axe solos, live concert footage and a vast supply of outlandish stuff going on.

So, this weekend I watched a great  movie, "Almost Famous."

. This movie had all the above and a little more. There are many movies that rock in our rich history that movie makers have been trying to assimilate throughout the years. I have put up a list of my top 15 favorites and a couple trailers for you to peruse on your dreaded Monday.

1. Almost Famous
2. A Hard Day's Night
3. Tommy
4. Pink Floyd "The Wall"
