RU? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 13 – Rock Of Ages

In the furthering adventures of being increasingly behind on getting the podcast to you, Rock of Ages left us both wishing once again that there were some way we could have seen Battleship instead. We suspect there’s something to the Broadway version, but we hope this didn’t do it justice.

Oddly, I liked Tom Cruise as the semi-insane Rock God, and we both liked a few scenes here and there, but overall it was a mess. There are a lot of negatives to touch on, and we do, but in the broken record tradition we’re establishing for ourselves, a lot of what’s wrong with the film could be fixed by editing out about 30 minutes.

 

On the other hand, if you really love GLEE, and can let yourself go completely, this is probably right up your alley.

Especially strange about this particular film is the extent to which Shane and I ramble on about what a shame it is, because this actually could have been a lot of fun. That’s strange, because I would have expected a more general disdain for the whole affair.
