Why Watch it Today?: Tommy Ramone, the last surviving member of the original band, was born 60 years ago today. End of the Century is one of the best documentaries you will see about a band, a fascinating examination of the personalities involved, even for non-fans.
Where to Get It: Netflix (Rental Only)
Other Choices: Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” was first published today; Universal’s The Raven features Bela Lugosi as an insane doctor with a Poe obsession.
