By L. Power HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I went to see it opening night, and without preconceptions found it to be a highly enjoyable experience.

Rock of Ages has now run as a successful musical on Broadway for three years, while the musical as a movie genre seems to have died a death on the movie screen in recent years. Moulin Rouge though derivative of pop music did very well. Chicago in 2003 won numerous Oscars. Phantom of the Opera did very well, and Mamma Mia was a huge hit. Nine the musical was spectacularly unsuccessful despite a cast stuffed with Oscar winners, and experts said there would be no more Hollywood musicals, that it was now dead as a genre.

Burlesque, starring Cher, Christina Aguilera, and Julianne Hough in a minor role was dismissed as a flop, though it was quite entertaining.

Rock of Ages stars Julianne Hough in her first leading role, and also stars Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, and Tom Cruise among others. As an entertainment experience, I find it outstanding. Many musicals fail because the music is not good. Mamma Mia could not go wrong with Abba music, and Phantom of the Opera had numerous hit songs.

Almost all the songs on Rock of Ages are classic rock anthems from the likes of Def Leppard, Journey and others.

Julianne Hough plays the wide eyed ingenue who lands on the strip and gets mugged. She finds a job at a rock venue, and has to conceal the fact she can sing. She falls in love with someone who works there. Everybody has a dream of making it big. So far, so like Burlesque.

The premise of the movie, though hardly original, nevertheless sweeps you along, and someone in the row behind me started clapping. I had to give him the three quarter head turn. The scenes are well put together, and musical production standards are outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New Musical...! Get It! Aug. 14 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This is a new-style musical with all the good stuff... great musical selection--many classics you should easily recognize--and a very endearing and believable love-story development which will keep you on the edge of your seat.

"How will they ever get back together?"

It contains some great original recordings of original classics... but what I like best is how the story brings out a new depth of meaning to the songs. It gives them a new sort of relevance and depth. The songs emerge throughout the development of the story, according to the development of their relationship, and more... which packs a great punch... I now think differently about some of these--their lyrical import--whenever I hear them.

And it enriches them... rather than taking away... this movie helps them shine in full... it fleshes them out in a very good way... legit but imaginative...

I first saw it in theaters with a couple close friends... we all liked it a lot! Happily anticipating its release...

:]

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun if you like musicals! Sept. 13 2013

Warning: There is singing! I love musicals and really enjoyed the movie! But music isn't for everybody! There are so many well - known songs that you can sing along to if you want! And tons of famous people to make things interesting!

I initially borrowed this movie from the library. When I watched it the first time around I thought it was a bit corny, but after so many laugh out loud moments and hearing all the music, I had to watch it again and was soon hooked and purchased my own copy.

Unbelievable performance by Tom Cruise and Paul Giamatti. Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin were hilarious. Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta super adorable. Hey Man the monkey stole the show time and again.

It's an outrageous movie, great comical escape, and the good ole rock'n'roll mash ups will have you singing along.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Movie March 14 2013
By Catherine E. Dalgarno TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lots of old 80's songs with likable actors. Tom Cruise is surprising in the Stacey Jaxx roll, he pulls off the rock star vibe and the singing as well. Most men I have talked to aren't into this must be the musical thing. Not every line is song in the movie which is a relief . A fun pass time with all the old songs you know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie
Not sure if I'm required to write a movie review or rate the actual bluray? The video is new and vacuum sealed. Plays in the PS3 and image is amazing

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining!
Very good movie. A lot of songs, but they are mostly well integrated in the story. We liked it a lot and watched it more than once.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a lot
A little over the top on the humor, and the story was barely in existence. Not sure what they were thinking when the cast Baldwin as he was almost weaker than Cruise. Read more
