Every time someone mentions ‘Rock of Ages’ I shake my head and give a snort of derision. Tom Cruise is trying to portray the lead singer of the biggest band in the world that has gone awry.
He isn’t shy about flashing his oddly distorted “abs” and working a flat ironed wig like his paycheck depends on it. You can see more photos of that by clicking here…
The film is an adaption of the musical set in 1987. Alec accurately predicts that the scene will become a sea of sweat, ear shattering music and puke in the trailer. I have a feeling movie patrons will be able to identify with that sentiment.
Journey, Whitesnake, Styx, Bon Jovi songs are all featured in the film and on the soundtrack which leaked today. Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Catherine Zeta Jones, Alec Baldwin all join Cruise in butchering some of the beloved tunes of my misspent youth.
It’s an auto tune hot mess and several tracks are passable, but they murdered ‘Wanted Dead or Alive.’ I might weep after my morning mimosa wears off.
Will you being seeing ‘Rock of Ages’?
