This movie preview brings you the latest on Rock of Ages, which brings the thunder to filmed musicals. When I say ‘brings the thunder,’ I don’t really know what I mean. I’ve been saying it a lot lately. The film follows a couple who fall in love at a Sunset Strip rock club but are torn apart by their rock n’ roll lifestyle. As a child of the 80′s, I can totally relate to this plot. I was a head banger, I loved Judas Priest, Dokken, Warrant , Iron Maiden… and my girl she was a fan of Vixen, Poison and Winger. Our love never had a chance, not even a chance.
…and rock out!
I grew up during the age of Nirvana, which proved that all that crap in the 80′s was terrible. Pffh. Wanted: Dead or Alive? More like Wanted: Dead.
That sounded better in my head.
Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages is based on a book and adapted play by Chris D’Arienzo. The music of the film is taken from popular 80′s music, with bands such as Journey, Bon Jovi, Twisted Sister, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, and REO Speedwagon. Man, I can NOT wait to get the soundtrack.

What’s Good About It?
I kinda like musicals with rock music… PSYCH. I will say it intrigues me that Tom Cruise is in the film. Not his normal kinda film. It must be interesting if he’s involved. Right?
What’s Bad About It?
The music of Journey and Bon Jovi. Man, this film is going to rock so hard. So weakly hard.
Our Clever Prediction
I doubt Rock of Ages will make much money, but it does have some star power, and Hollywood likes musicals, so it’ll get a big push, and if Oscar comes calling, it’ll make a boatload. WHOA!! We’re Halfway there. WHOOOOOOA. LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER. Blah blah blah. Lame.
