This week we break down Adam Sandler’s “That’s My Boy”, along with the 80s hair metal fueled musical “Rock of Ages”, starring a entire cavalcade of stars, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta Jones, Paul Giamatti, etc etc…
Then, inspired by the movie, Tank and I take a look back at 1987 ourselves… including what was going on with us at that time, and what our favorite movies from that year were!
All that plus The Box Office Roundup, Has Tank Seen Scarface, and a TPMP original that may just cause some ears to bleed.
You can check it out here, or as always, search for us on iTunes by searching (title pending) or Tank and Fogs, or both!
“Rock of Ages” is a unapolagetic mash-up of 80s pop-rock and hair metal music, loosely held together by a storyline of stereotypical rock and roll elements: the wide-eyed midwest ingenue coming to LA, the busboy with the desire to be a big star, the scumbag agent, the skeevy middle-aged club owner, the Tipper Gore-esque crusader, and of course, the larger than life rock star who’s lost touch with reality.
If you “ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time”, you’ve found it. There’s actually a lot of fun to be had here.
