the rocker cupcake review
The Rocker is a great little movie to go to if you just need to get out and have a laugh or two, mostly at the expense of Riann Wilson's character, a down on his luck guy who used to be the drummer for one of the great 80's hair bands - before they made it big.
Reminicent of Jack Black's School of Rock (one of our all time faves around here) The Rocker is just a really fun piece about reclaiming your youth, reliving your glory and growing up... no matter how long it takes you.
What I am finding the most interesting about movies these days is the cross-promotion that takes place on the internet. Check out The Rocker's official website and link to its MySpace, Facebook profile and YouTube channel. There are some groovy downloads and a game where you too can be a rockstar and practice throwing televisions out of hotel windows. My hotel damage bill was $4500, what was yours?
The soundtrack to the movie was pretty sweet... check out the songs by Teddy Geiger, he's an up-and-coming artist featured in a role in the movie. He has a website too (of course) and it makes the mind dizzy to see what young musicians do these days to get recognized. His fans are called "Tedheads" and he's using the internet to let them choose the songs for his next album. He's got some good songs so go check him out.
Because it was so darn cute I gave The Rocker 3.5 cupcakes out of five and I probably could have given more but it was a bit too similar to School of Rock... enjoy.
