The Runaways

The Runaways is just another rock bio pic...Directed by Floria Sigismondi The Runaways tells the story of how Joan Jett created The Runaways with teenage (Jail Bait) singer Cherie Currie...Like any good rock legend the runaways shoot to the top real fast... Babies in the world of sex and drugs... Based on Cherie's Memoir this film really focuses on Jett And Currie and there brief love affair...Not one of The Runaways bass players are portrayed in this film witch seems wrong...Joan Jett was one of the producers...Lita Ford is portrayed as a cunt... Casting of Dakotta Fanning and Kristen Stewart as the 2 leads is spot on...Sigismondi a vetran music video director does well homaging great rock films like Tommy,Help,The Wall,And Sid and Nancey...I rember in the early 90s Calvin Klien got in trouble for creating ads that looked like kiddie porn...We've come along way baby...The Runaways got away with it in the mid 70s


  1. I love The Runaways! I haven't seen the movie yet, but I keep hearing good things.

  2. Cherie is a chainsaw artist, how awesomely sick is that & she's still pretty hot.
