Caught Rock of Ages over the weekend and it has completely dominated my iPod!
I caught the sing-along version which is good because there are lyrics on the screen!
Based on the Broadway musical, it follows Sherrie (Julianne Hough) who moves to Los Angeles from Oklahoma with dreams of becoming a singer. She meets Drew (Diego Boneta) who gets her a job at the Bourbon Room where he works after her suitcase gets stolen. They are both in for a rockin’ good time because Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), the frontman of Arsenal and rock superstar will be performing at the Bourbon Room.
WOW. Who knew Tom Cruise could sing like that?! He really sounds like the rock stars of the 80’s! He may be a little too sexed up for my liking but he really embodies the rock star persona. One of my favourite songs from the soundtrack is Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” sung by Tom Cruise and Malin Akerman, both of whom sound great. In my opinion, Tom Cruise really rocked Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me”.
Diego Boneta can sing too – though I was laughing like craaazy when the Z Guyeezz appeared. Well, boybands had to start somewhere. I liked the opening and closing songs – “Sister Christian/Just Like Paradise/ Nothin’ but a Good Time” and “Don’t Stop Believin'”. I simply love mash-ups!
This is a MUST WATCH for lovers of rock music!!!
