2. La Bamba (1987)

This brilliant classic film was the premier debut for actor Lou Diamond- Phillips when he took the role of ill-fated Ritchie Valens – the famous rocker who lost his life in a plane crash along with Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper. The cast brought to life a brilliant and chaotic story of the rise and ultimate fall of Ritchie Valens, his family issues with his troubled brother – played by Esai Morales. The story truly comes to live with some incredible music performances by Marshall Crenshaw who played Buddy Holly and Joe Pantoliano who played Ritchie’s iconic manager.
