The angle of Stacee's head changes during his interview by Rolling Stone magazine. At the beginning of the interview, he sits up and leans forward on the couch, and starts to say, "I think, due to the changing nature of the music industry..." with his head leaning to his left. The camera angle changes, and his head is instantly leaning to his right. See more »
I was really excited to see this movie when I first saw the trailer. I'm a huge fan of the 80's glam rock and heavy metal, so I thought that this movie would be awesome. But when I started watching the movie I immediately got the impression that this is some kind of Glee smelling teen flick. They took all these fantastic glam rock/heavy metal songs and transformed them to something completely different. Also I was completely turned off by Julianne Hough's 'whiny' vocals, maybe she can sing but this is absolutely NOT the genre of music she should be representing.
One thing I really loved by this movie was Tom Cruise and the songs he performed. I was really impressed by his performance and his vocals.
