Did you watch these two movies based on concept albums by The Who and do you like them?

Yes.

Tommy was too kookie for me.  I couldn't get through the entire movie.



Quadrophenia was ok.

Yep. Saw both when they originally came to the theater. Probably saw Tommy at least a dozen times and Quadrophenia a handful of times. Love Tommy a bit more because of its craziness. My mom even went to see it with me a few times.

Tommy is better, for me anyway. There's more memorable moments and the scenes fit the songs perfectly like Pinball Wizard and Fiddle About, I'm Free, Acid Queen and Tommy Can You Hear Me.

I think they both suck for the most part, though Tommy sucks a little bit less.

I've seen Tommy and while it has interesting moments, like seeing Clapton, Tina Turner and Elton John, the film overall is like a mad drug fueled nightmare. Cheesy! And Jack Nicholson singing is ... wow. I haven't seen Quadrophenia.
