So far, I only heard School Days on Detroit Rock City soundtrack. And yes, I know it's one of Joan Jett's former bands.. But Dakota Fanning as Cherrie and Kristen Stewart aka Bella Swan as JOAN JETT?!?! Gotta be shitting me.

No trailer found but this preview was just bleechh. Doesn't even look close of Dakota as Cherrie.

In other news, I have a Joan Jett Live in Colorado DVD. I loved the whole of it. I disagree with the hostess. They can't pull it off well.

I will reserve pre-judgement until I see a trailer.

Still having doubts about Dakota Fanning being Cherrie. :/

^^^ Actually looks kinda cool.

Yeah, it'll be like a gender opposite of Almost Famous eh?

And it's sooo true about band managers treating girls like pop star whores these days just cos they're not that good in metal/rock music scene.. Joan Jett proved them wrong. I'm gonna pretend Kristen's Bella character was just after thought. I'll give her this one chance to redeem herself besides Twatlight. As for Dakota Fanning, who knew she'd grew up to be this "skanky" character type on the same level as Lindsay Lohan since that movie Push?

Who knows, maybe Dakota can outrock and outshine Lindsay Lohan's freaky friday song. :p

This is also the reason why I often take a big break from the usual speed/metalcore/doom bands that are mostly male dominated these days. Girls are not just fucking pop star pretty fake faces like Britney, Beyonce etc...

Floria Sigismondi the writer/director of this movie directed The Beautiful People and the Tourniquent (sorry for my spelling) video clips as well as 2 David Bowie vids. Interesting.

I'll see it and then make my conclusions, as im quiet confused but these choices.... as i agree mostly with what is said by the users above.

Only thing cool about this is that the film will have Scout Taylor-Compton. :)

Yeah, and she plays Lita Ford!!! So far, I only heard her duet with Ozzy Close my Eyes forever and Kiss me Deadly.

Found this on Scout's twitter background.. CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-EEEERRYYY BOMB!!!!!!!!

I may see it for Scout alone.

We'll see.

Holy crap. Dakota Fanning as Cherie is just WOW. What you have been dressing lately, Dakota? O____________O

This clip made me feel even more compelled to see this.. Despite Kristen is Joan Jett, I tried to forget her twilight shit movies and think they never existed. Same goes with sparkling vamp boyfriends.

The official music vid Cherry Bomb with Kristen and Dakota. According to some sources, both of them REALLY had vocal lessons, guitar sessions and yes, they thought they pulled it off fairly good.

And I think I just saw Dakota fucking some guy at 1:28. Holy Shit. The wonders of Puberty and Lindsay Lohan-ish slutty drunkard phase.

P.S. It had a good review of 3 stars from this critic:


:) Hah. The critic really like Kristen Stewart's performance on this despite he gave Twilight a shitty review... Loove it.

Hi Runaway fans, especially Mi-Cro Martie. I have watched your music posts with interest. I wish there was a way to post it note on specific comments, because veering off topic or referring back to older posts gets confusing. On the other hand, I don't wanna bug people with private messages,so here is my contribution to a very old thread.
I remember the Runaways. They made people nervous enough that local news would do the "lock up your sons" line (shoulda said daughters too). They were raw, angry, well, riot grrrls before the concept every existed. I love the Runaways movie. It is great fun, and great rock'n'roll. I would rather have seen Penelope Spheeris direct, but whatever. The point is that movie is practically a G rated nostalgia trip. Cherie Curries original publication of Neon Angels was written in the drug/acohol abusing days shortly after her acting opportunites dried up. There were on the road diary exerpts. Sure, a lot of things were ignored. Like who in the band was sleeping with other band members....you get the picture. Unfortunately that book has become a collectors item that goes for insane prices. If you want a little better understanding of the band, watch Edgeplay. It very pointedly is minus Joan Jett or her manager, Kenny Laguna. Ah Joanie, if you'd just stayed one of the boys *sigh* But time and tide changes all things. Hope this post isn't too belated.
