Well I went to go see Rock of Ages tonight

#1
Middletown, IL
in Springfield. 10:00 show. Fun movie. Great music (if you like 80's music, like I do)

Very surprised with how well Tom Cruise sounded singing. You can tell it is really him singing with some small digital tweaks I'm sure to smooth things out...but you can tell it's his voice.

It's about 2 hours and 5 minutes...so it's kinda long...but it goes by quick and is a lot of fun. Highly recommended.

Some real funny scenes that aren't in the trailer (and for good reason as they tend to be a little risque)

4 out of 5. Only knock against it is Russell Brand...while very funny....tends to be a little distracting.

Also....look for 3 cameos from 80's musicians in the "We Built This City/We're Not Gonna Take It" showdown.

A Legend in My Own Mind

My wife and I went and saw the musical in Chicago last weekend. It was quite fun, and I was wondering how it would translate to the big screen. I may have to check it out.
