Sunday, 17 June 2012 04:00

deadendthumbForget Mamma Mia, this is more Your Mama Don't Dance: yes, Hollywood once again dredges the gutters looking for every last shiny penny from the easily-led and the bullshit-fed. Rock Of Ages is another attempt by the movie industry to tap into the disposable incomes of bored housewives - this time it's the former rock chick cash cow that is being slaughtered, the lowest common denominator music fans pulling themselves away from sharing hair metal power ballads at "wine o' clock" on social networking websites to squeeze their fat asses into overpriced cinema seats to watch Tom Cruise and his bunch of identikit minions murder a slew of cock rock standards. Read on as Mark Ashby hits this cinematic abortion with his best shot.....
