I was in the mall and I didn’t wanna go home yet. I decided then to just watch a movie since it has been a few weeks since I last saw one. Good thing my friend was available or else I could have watched Rock of Ages alone. I saw the trailer and I knew I would love the movie especially since it was about Rock and Roll!
Also, with a superb cast consisting of Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mary J. Blige and Paul Giamatti made it much more exciting to watch! I wonder how they can rock the movie and sing those songs which are obviously not in their comfort zone.
The movie revolved around 2 characters – Sherrie Christian (Julianne Hough) and Drew Boley (Diego Boneta), on their journey to reach their dream to become famous rock singers. Love, Talent, Friendship, Music and Loyalty are things that you can see in the movie.
The movie stars that I was looking forward to watching in Rock of Ages were actually supporting cast members. However, I love that every character had its own unique qualities and special moments in the movie. I appreciate the flow of the story and how all the characters fit into it. Rock of Ages will really make you remember your love for rock and roll. I, myself, did!
While I recommend the movie, I do not think it’ll suit children or even young teens. They might follow what Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) was doing in Rock of Ages, hahaha! Considering the multiple tongue action, breast fondling and sex that rock stars do, we don’t want the youth today to be doing those things. However, we wanted to preserve Rock and Roll! Let’s just concentrate on the music and not follow what rockstars usually do behind the scenes, alright?
The music blew me away (featuring the music of Bon Jovi, Guns N’Roses, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Poison, Pat Benatar, Reo Speedwagon, Whitesnake, Night Ranger & Twisted Sister). I realized how I missed listening to beautiful rock & roll music. Actually, I ended up searching for the soundtrack of Rock of Ages in the iTunes Store as soon as I came home! I must say the soundtrack is just as awesome as the movie! Even if you haven’t watched Rock of Ages, the soundtrack itself will make you sing your heart out! I never even thought that Tom Cruise could sing!
If you watched the movie and bought the soundtrack, it’ll double the fun! Rock on!
My Rating for Rock of Ages: 4 out of 5 stars
