DVD Review: Rock of Ages
There's a moment when the whole thing threatens to go off the rails, but the music keeps it together - you know that the scene will change and develop by the time to song or mashup is over, so that's one of the nice things about having the music drive the story, quick turnover and a fast enough pace. Yes, the story sometimes stops while they sing, but the songs they choose usually drive the story - "Hit me with your best shot" sung by Zeta-Jones and the other church ladies when fighting with The Bourbon and its fans. Overall, I enjoyed it, but it's awkwardly put together and not exactly a logical story. Still a nice chance to revisit a lot of music I couldn't have told you I liked, but knew all the words. Sometimes that's enough.
