Not Fade Away
Lest you think I've become Santa Claus with some of these star ratings, along comes "The Sopranos" creator David Chase with a truly generic, totally uninvolving remembrance of growing up during the 60s and playing drums in a rock-and-roll band. We've seen every scene countless times - the family dinner-table fights over Vietnam, the band's breakups and petty jealousies - and heard every song. "Not Fade Away" not only fades away; it never sets in.
