‘Rock of Ages’ Trailer Throws Up In Its Leather Pants

There must be some people somewhere looking forward to this, but Rock of Ages looks like the grandiose celebration of all things shoulder padded and hairspray covered. It looks like the movie version of “Now! That’s What I Call Music Volume -14.” There was a reason that the empty decadence of 80s music took a boot to the face in the form of The Ramones and was finally left to bleed out by Nirvana, but there must be people somewhere anxious to relive acid washed days of yore.

Adam Shankman takes a break from judging So You Think You Can Dance to direct this musical starring a bunch of one-liners from Alec Baldwin, the offensive-to-no-one Julianne Hough, Tom Cruise as Aldous Snow/Axl Rose (which is weird because Russell Brand is also in this thing), and the font from Rock Band.

It’s a bunch of wealthy people playing karaoke. Check it out for yourself:

If you’re a fan of the music, wouldn’t it be easier to enjoy it from the original artists? Why would you want average vocals trying to knock out Def Leppard?
