Rock of Ages

I enjoyed Rock of Ages, I enjoyed the music, I was less enamoured of the cheesy plot, but I enjoyed the stereotypes. The critics like Christopher Tookey and Mark Kermode hated it, it reminds me of Ian Durie’s response when told his anthem “Spasticus. Autisticus” would upset the Spastic Society’s able bodied supporters, “I didn’t write it for them!” Some critics enjoy being pretentious, they are pretentious now they were probably just as pretentious in the 1980s. These are the sort of people who laugh at the jokes in James Joyce’s Ulysses, that they don’t enjoy a film makes it more probable real people will. Go and see Rock of Ages for yourself, don’t let some over paid middle class pseuds spoil your fun!
