Rock 'n' Roll High School

1 year, 2 months ago at Jul 12 21:17
It’s a pretty fun and rare treat to watch a hugely influential band use their clout to make a film so obviously designed for cult status and fringe worship. But what else would one expect from the Ramones?

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School does little to update the kids-against-the-adults formula of the rock-orientated high school musical. The stern principal who constantly tries to ... read more

"August 13 "Tom Roberts is so boring his brother is an only child." I'm a huge Ramones fan and I didn't like this movie. It's pretty much Better Off Dead with The Ramones so if that sounds like a good movie to you then go for it. They also play so many Ramones songs that any fans of the band would be better off listening to their albums. Although if it wasn't for the inclusion of The Ramones and other good songs in the soundtrack, this movie would be awful."

“It’s a pretty fun and rare treat to watch a hugely influential band use their clout to make a film so obviously designed for cult status and fringe worship. But what else would one expect from the Ramones?

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School does little to update the kids-against-the-adults formula of the rock-orientated high school musical. The stern principal who constantly tries to outlaw their fun and musical choices, the rebellious lead and nerdy sidekick, the hot boyfriend for the nerdy sidekick – all of them are present and accounted for. As are other various personality types and plot shenanigans from dozens of other films which have been distilled down to their purest form here.

It brings nothing new to the table, but it’s pretty solidly made and features two ” read more

Moviefone's 12 Craziest Teen Moments (12 movies items)

"The Ramones Rock the Roof Off Sure, meeting your favorite band is cool, but what if they showed up at your high school? When a school full of rock fanatics get their music taken away, chaos ensues. In this scene, the Ramones show up to help the kids take over the school by playing a live show and blowing it up, literally. Every rock n' roll rebel dreams of this moment. "

"Katsottu: 14.5.2012 Oivallista hyvänmielentykitystä Cormanin tuotantotiimiltä. Oikeastaan tässä ei ollut sen enempää järkeä. Ramonesin rallatukset soivat jatkuvasti, koulun uusi rehtori on todella paha ja erikoisia tilanteita riittää. Koulumusikaaliksi tässä ei kyllä kovin paljon laulettu, mutta ehkä juuri siksi tämä pysyikin suhteellisen viihdyttävänä ja helppona tapauksena. Eihän tämä nyt oikeasti kolmea tähteä enempää ansaitse, vaikka onkin erittäin kiva pikkumusik"

" Third Viewing I Believe Personal Collection DVD I adore the Ramones more than I can ever explain so watching a film with them involved is a dream come true. It's quite cheesy but that's the beauty of it, it has it's charms and that keeps the viewer entertained and the soundtrack is top notch. A worthy watch along with the Ramones albums. Any fan of the band should appreciate the film for it's quirky humor and all out fun atmosphere. If you like the Ramones this for you, but if you love Roger"
