Rock music is usually not incorporated in your everyday musical, and films about bands, real or fictional, have all become cult classics in some way. The rise of rock in the ’70s and ’80s led to an onslaught of movies based on the obsession that everyone had with wanting to become a rockstar which then led to some awesome, but ridiculous, films. The life of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll has been turned into a fantasy world that only those with the tightest pants, biggest hair and massive hits could live in but that hasn’t stopped many from imagining what it was like. These films were no doubt good, but somewhat ridiculous only adding to the myth of rockstar life.
9. The Runaways (2010)
This particular movie is ridiculous for a whole lot of reasons. First, many movies about huge bands or artists often don’t make a lot of money so making one about Cherie Currie and Joan Jett in their band The Runaways, which is not what many remember Jett for is questionable. Then they went and cast Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart in the lead roles, which just seemed wrong especially during sex scenes because they seemed so young. In the end, the movie wasn’t horrible but seems like it got lost on its way to rock biography and landed in the teen dramedy category.
