Movie Monday - 8/6/2012

Rock of Ages is based on the musical of the same name.  It’s a cute, predictable story about a girl who comes to LaLa Land, trying to make it big and ends up helping to save the venue where she had landed.  It really reminded me a little of the movie Burlesque.  The performances are over the top, but definitely entertaining.  Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise, Diego Boneta (a newcomer), Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand (OK – his performance was just Russell), Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige thrill us with their talents.  The music was from the 80s hair band era.  It was good.

MK out.
