Finally saw it.

Didn't like it. At all really.
The review is spot on.

So finally, finally, Jo Jones pulled off the cymbal and said ‘DING’ on the floor. Some would call it a crash, and they were right, a DING trying to pass itself as under a crash.


I have a problem with the above quote, sorry I'm not a native speaker of English. So did Jones actually say (i.e. utter) the word DING or what? Thanks.

I think it means he dropped it on the floor. I'm a native english speaker and it's not super clear.

Think I'll wait for the movie to come out on Netflix.

Thanks man! Bloody pseudo-sophisticated, overintellectualised New Yorker writers and their fancy way of speaking :P No, seriously, I like New Yorker a lot.

Didn't know that the blast beat is so directly connected to jazz ;)

If Hollywood did it "right", no one would want to see it. Awesome movie.
