(Update June 17, 2012: The Box Office receipts are in for RofA's opening weekend with disastrous results. ROCK of AGES is a big time FLOP! With a $75 mil budget, Hollywood is already counting their losses.
Heads will roll over this one. Who made the decision to make a 1980's nostalgia musical in the first place, and who decided to cast the 50 year old Tom Cruise as the 25-year old Rock Star will probably be fired over this disaster.
What's next for Cruise? Maybe a remake of 'Howard the Duck' with venerable Tom playing the duck?)
From a Guest Contributor in Los Angeles comes this brief review of Tom Cruise "singing" ability in the forthcoming movie, ROCK of AGES:
"In a private screening of the much anticipated blockbuster musical Rock of Ages, we cringed as we painfully watched and listened to the aging diminutive Tom Cruise "sing(?)".

"Even with modern digital recording technology, Cruise still sounded like a 'parade of farts filtered through an echo chamber'."
(Editors comment: It seems this contributor may be a bit opinionated? Perhaps others in our audience would want put their "reviews" of this film and Cruise's singing talents into our 'comments' section. We don't plan on seeing the movie ourselves.)
