We did it!
Last weekend, Rollingstone.com asked its readers to vote on the best rock movies of all time–and The Runaways took the top spot!
Here’s the rest of the top 10, as chosen by Rollingstone.com’s readers:
9. School of Rock
8. The Commitments
7. The Doors
6. A Hard Day’s Night
4. This is Spinal Tap
3. Almost Famous
2. The Wall
1. The Runaways
Movies about hugely famous bands struggle to turn a profit, so it’s unclear why anyone felt a movie about the Runaways would be a success. Granted, they hedged their bets by casting Kristen Stewart at the height of Twilight mania, but this was a tough sell. Most people forget this punk band even existed, and members Lita Ford and Joan Jett have had far more success in their solo careers. The film absolutely tanked, but that’s not because it’s poorly made. It’s actually pretty fun, even though it plays fast and loose with the facts. (We suspect this won the poll because a certain actress from the film has a lot of Internet-savvy fans.)

Thanks, KStew fans! 😀
What facts did the film play loose with?
Ugh… I just hate the rolling stone mag!
