As Movies: Tommy vs. The Wall

of these two landmark rock operas, The Who's Tommy and Pink Floyd's The Wall, which made for a better movie?

Tommy, because I don't like The Wall in any of its incarnations.

"Tommy" was hysterically awful.

I'll take it.

Re: As Movies: Tommy vs. The Wall

As far as the movies go I think The Wall translated into a better movie so I vote for it. If this were between the actual albums it would be a much harder decision.

Re: As Movies: Tommy vs. The Wall

Great albums. Lousy movies. I guess I'll pick the lesser of two evils-The Wall.

Re: As Movies: Tommy vs. The Wall

Movie wise I would take Quad over both of them
Between the two I'll take Tommy for the classic factors.
Come in Ann Margaret in the baked beans and Tina as the Acid Queen.

I remember the 1980 Wall concert more than the movie.

Re: As Movies: Tommy vs. The Wall

Both movies were laughably bad, but The Wall was incomprehensible. I voted for Tommy.
