A Sea of Sweat, Ear-Shattering Music and Puke


I’ll admit to going through a drama student musical phase when I was in high school, but honestly, it’s been a long time since a movie musical wowed me. Hairspray was fun, I suppose, but it didn’t really do anything for me. Well, the director of that film, Adam Shankman, has returned with another musical called Rock of Ages, based on a hit Broadway show. And y’know, I can actually get behind this one! Maybe it’s just because it’s full of the kind of awesome 80’s rock tunes that I adore, but I won’t deny that this trailer had me bobbing my head. Plus, the cast of this movie features just about everybody, including Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bryan Cranston, Malin Akerman, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand and yes, even Tom Cruise. Even if the film is a dud, I can guarantee that I will be listening to the soundtrack again and again. Now I’m off to crank the Twisted Sister.

Rock of Ages comes out June 1, 2012.
