Derek:  Don’t I like Metallica? Well, I used to.

Steph:  Really? I just saw a movie about them recently.

Derek:  Was it pretty good?

Derek:  Sounds pretty interesting.

Discussion

I like watching documentaries about bands because they make you realize that musicians are just normal people. They have normal relationships with each other and the same problems as everyone else.
This documentary was really interesting because Metallica has been around for so long. There was a lot of footage all of those years together.
Have you ever seen any documentaries about bands? Do you think they are pretty true to life?

yeah ,we allways think documentaries tell us what are the truly ones of the people we think they are just perfect stars but never know their lives .we alwasy imagine they must have a immaculate lifestyles of which they can do anything if they like ,but the truth is that they have to face with many pressions and suffer from many difficulties just like us all, i think the documents can help some fans keep a normal emotion when towards their stars ,and what's more learn to live a better life about oneself .Smile
