Watch Too Tough to Die: A Tribute to Johnny Ramone - Alternative Versions.
The performances were good, and (in Eddie Vedder's offerings) even
splendid, making something poignant and powerful as well as
rambunctious and ground-breaking out of the Ramones' songs. The visual
production is no-frills, which is appropriate to its subjects, and most
of the guest stars and inserted commentators are both passionate and of
relevance to the Ramones' legend, although - in this regard - I do
wonder how Lisa Marie Presley managed to squeeze her way into the
proceedings, since she is not punk, scarcely a modern musical presence
at all, and of no particular interest in her comments here. Still, the
importance of the Ramones to many of the people in the film is both
well expressed and (at times) moving. I have no essential problem with
those two aspects of the movie: the musical homages, and the oral
essays. My concerns start at the point where they were edited together,
and this is where one of the most common errors of these "tributes"
emerges in full force - the performances are constantly interrupted by
talking heads, very few acts find their tributes in full array. I don't
need to be told (in the middle of a song) how important the Ramones
were to this or that personality. The adulation can wait until song's
end, because the music is what it is ALL about. A disappointing and
very Middle of the Road format.
As an aside, Johnny Ramone was in the process of dying and though eager
to be there that night, was finally too ill to attend. So they held up
a cellphone so he could hear? Why couldn't some type of audio-visual
remote have been set up so (at least) Johnny could have experienced the
concert, if not also so he might himself be seen? This struck me as
odd, considering the level of money and talent that attended.
Worth viewing, for the few full songs, the passion displayed in some
acts, and the occasional stills and video of the Ramones themselves.
But not an exemplary production.
