Thoughts on What We Do Is Secret

-A biopic of the Germs, specifically, their lead singer Darby Crash (played by Shane West). Also around is Ben from Reaper as Pat Smear, Bijou Phillips as Lorna Doom, Tina Majorino as Michelle Baer Ghaffari and a eczema-inflicted Ashton Holmes as Crash's boyfriend, Rob.

-If I had to describe this movie in three syllables, it would be: watered-down.

-I can't take Shane West seriously. He's always trying to put on his tough guy face, and I mean, dude. It's Shane West.

-Same with Ben...Rick Gonzalez. He's technically supposed to be the more laced-up of the band, but he, and Phillips, and everyone else for that matter, just look like a bunch of acting school graduates mugging like punk rockers.

-Direction is off. Uneven. It only really shines during the musical numbers.

-Eh. It was fine.
