Go Film Go (Rock and Pop)

Enforced by personal taste or cultural reference, feature presentation is just the start of motion picture 35mm roll.

Some are less blatant than others, but signposting and description ensures you won't miss a thing.

Michael Jackson's Thriller is displayed in Back to the Future Part II when Marty returns from 2015 to an 'alternate' 1985.
Just in case ears were having an off day, Beat It (from the same album) is heard in the Cafe 80s.
Alien abduction thriller Dark Skies wasn't anything great, but missing son Jesse was a fan of Mastodon's The Hunter and Curren$y's The Stoned Immaculate.
Until supercop John Spartan (Stallone) and notorious criminal Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) are thawed out in San Angeles 2032, 20th century obsessed Lenina Huxley (Sandra Bullock) finds life beyond tedious in enjoyable action satire Demolition Man.
Red Hot Chili Peppers spilling Blood Sugar Sex Magik can suck my kiss.
In the original Get Carter, (not to be confused with the fucking terrible Stallone remake), Let it Bleed by The Rolling Stones is upright on Michael Caine's apartment floor.
The already dead Lisa (Abigail Breslin) experiences groundhog day in 2013 supernatural thriller Haunter.  In turn, David Bowie became Low and Meat is Murder for The Smiths.
In piss poor comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, friends John Cusack, Craig Robinson and Rob Corddry travel back to 1986, where Duran Duran's Rio may or may not be abundantly obvious.
Wes Craven's seminal horror franchise A Nightmare on Elm Street made Robert Englund a horror icon.  It also saw a fresh-faced Johnny Depp make his big screen debut with snooze shack containing Grace Under Pressure from Rush.
Steve Carell stars as the titular 40-Year-Old-Virgin and Asia's eponymously titled debut was chosen ahead of any other.
In lamentable Jason Biggs/Isla Fisher romcom Wedding Daze, The National provide uneasy snap with Alligator.
As men lusted after Kelly LeBrock in 1985 teen sci-fi comedy classic Weird ScienceY&T's In Rock We Trust may have escaped attention.
Based on Andrea Dunbar's stage plays 'The Arbour' and 'Rita, Sue and Bob Too', Alan Clarke's 1986 British classic features a mutilated poster of Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols.
After Dolph Lundgren's violent stab at portraying Frank Castle in The Punisher (1989), neither Thomas Jane in 2004 reboot/remake or Ray Stevenson in 2008 sequel War Zone looked out of place as Marvel vigilante.
Anyway, far left is Faster Pussycat's self-titled vanity and single Can I Play with Madness, taken from Iron Maiden's Seventh Son of a Seventh Son equates to immaculate observation.
Brian (Rick Hearst) is a fan of Slayer's Reign of Blood in Frank Henenlotter's 1987 horror comedy Brain Damage.
Before Brent (Xavier Samuel) suffers unimaginable torture at the hands of Princess (Robin McLeavy) and Daddy (John Brumpton) in Sean Byrne's impressive 2009 Australian shocker The Loved Ones, bedroom displays Radiohead's Amnesiac and Metallica's Kill 'em All.
Taken from album Piece of Mind, Iron Maiden single The Trooper pops up in Possession (2008), the American remake of 2002 South Korean thriller Addicted.
As several others bear same or very similar title, Sarah Michelle Gellar stars.
Iron Maiden (again), this time with Virtual XI in fairly awful 1999 heist thriller Entrapment.
The trashy 2010 reboot of Piranha features boobs, tits, boobs and more tits.
Nirvana's iconic smiley logo (first used to promote Nevermind), Lou Reed's Transformer and Ramones' Rocket to Russia adds hormonal spice.
By pure coincidence, Paranormal Activity 2 also features said Ramones album.
In enjoyable 2013 zombie romcom Warm Bodies, Julie's bedroom proudly displays Sonic Youth's sixth studio album Goo
Trainspotting is one of the greatest films ever made.
While pumping iron and spilling the truth about Begbie's escapades in the pub, Raw Power by Iggy Pop and The Stooges dominates pink wall.
Finally, 2006 infertility thriller Children of Men must be commended for recreating the cover art of Pink Floyd's Animals.


Pigs may not fly, but they do float...

Now appetite is whetted, theatre plays next.
