IS TOM CRUISE CONVINCING AS AN 80’S ROCK STAR?

Tom Cruise’s movie “Rock of Ages” was favorably reviewed by a guy at Deadline.com, but we’re not so sure. We love the idea of celebrating 80’s music and rock stars, but famous faces in the cast are distracting. We almost wish unknowns were playing the characters so we could get lost in the story. Also, musicals like this are generally more spectacular seen live on Broadway. Take a look at the trailer – will you be in line this summer to see this?

    Tom was convincing as Les Grossman? in Tropic Thunder! That role made him almost likable! Lots of him in that role….

    Yes, if that rock star is Pat Benatar.

    The trailer that I saw awhile back, portrayed Tom’s character as a cameo-like appearance in the movie.

    One thing is fo certain, Tom Cruise with long hair, doesn’t do it for me!!

    He looks too much like that vampire guy from that 90’s flick. He is too long in the tooth. ha ha ha Better off doing the Les Grossman type.

    Oh no, I think Janet has been either brainwashed by the creepy scientologists and is now on their agenda by garnering publicity for one of Cruise’s projects ….or she is being kidnapped and they are now running her website!

    Either way Janet and her faithful readers are screwed!

    Alec Baldwin looks the worst in the trailer that I saw. He looks like a 55 year old man with a wig trying to look 30.

    Is Scientology involved in this? Tiny Tom Thumb has definitely lost his mind, and he started losing it the second he joined SCI. Course he does not realize this, because he and all the idiots in it are totally brainwashed.

    The problem with this movie based on the trailer is it doesn’t seem to know what it is: comedy, drama or uplifting story about a young girl on the verge of a big music career. Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise and Julianne Hough each seem to be in their own film universe. Rock of Ages or “Bomb” of Ages? Another weird thing–why isn’t there one scene of Cruise where he is standing still and talking?

    Tom has to give it up. He’s lost his 80s cool and he will never get that back. No matter how many buildings he says he’s scaled in Dubai. Enjoy the oil, Tom?

    For a GORGEOUS rock movie try Ewan MacGregor in Velvet Goldmine! He goes naked!
    A MUCH better movie to watch (just not with the kids!)

    Rock of Ages is pure garbage. The play and the movie. There is no story, it’s just 80’s cheese and that’s it.

    Really Hollywood? There aren’t any other actors, you have to cast this horrible actor over and over?

    Can we just take Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Nic Cage and all the other awful actors who keep getting work and drop them off on some deserted island?

    Rock of Ages has stinkbomb written all over it. Looks like a movie trying to capture some of the TV show “Glee’s” popularity oh yea and CZJ trying to take on the role John Lithgow originated in Footloose.
    This movie has a pee-yew feel to it.
