The movie held its Hollywood premiere this past weekend with my favorite MTV veejay Martha Quinn conducting interviews at the black carpet. (Yes, it was black instead of red in honor of rock n' roll.) She held a fun interview with Tom Cruise talking about the music from the movie and the appreciation of the 80s era bands have had for the way he performed the role. The movie soundtrack is available now and features 20 tracks performed by the cast. It includes a few tracks that "mashup" some of the rock hits including "We Built This City / We're Not Gonna Take It" and "Juke Box Hero / I Love Rock 'n' Roll."
To be honest, my jury is still out on how good the movie will be. The cast does have a good mix of actors and singers and I've heard it does have some good comedic value. I'll be watching it mainly for the music and to see if this group can pull off some those notes that the 80s rockers did back in the day. I'm anxious to hear if you 80s fans will be seeing it opening weekend and also how it will do on Rotten Tomatoes. (I'll be traveling so I won't get a chance to see it until the following week.) Also can't wait to hear if my friends Tank & Fogs will stamp it or flush it on the Title Pending Movie Podcast. Rock on!
