I was overseas when Rock of Ages opened last June and I never got around to seeing it on Bluray. But I happened to turn it on an hour ago and I have to admit something. I know the karaoke factor is a problem, but if you half-watch it and don’t concentrate too much on the particulars, it’s spirited and half-tolerable. Do we have a new category here? The kind that more or less irritates if you give it your complete attention but which succeeds as white noise?
