Buzzy Wuzzy: Wild Women Do, The Story Of 'The Runaways'

Friday, December 18, 2009

Ah. I love a good music bio pic, don't you? I still think of Laurence Fishburne as Ike Turner and I can't find Gary Busey too creepy (okay, he massively is) because he managed to become Buddy Holly, and then there is Purple Rain, which is basically a good two hours in the daily life of Prince, Lake Minnetonka, frilly dress shirts and all. It's an innate trait for me as a music nerd to enjoy a bio-pic geared towards stories about guitars, dressing room shoot-ups and ego tripping.

So of course when the news of a bio-pic based on the rambunctious 70's girl band, The Runaways broke, I was of course intrigued. Especially since I have a fondness for guitarist, Lita Ford and a few Runaways tracks. Judging from the trailer, the movie looks to be quite a sex, drugs, musical differences, cat fights, rock n' roll type deal, where we'll get to see how fame and estrogen levels take over and the music kinship is abandoned. Saucy and intriguing. Okay, actress Kristen Stewart isn't exactly going to convince me as Joan Jett (even though the hair is perfect) and actress, Dakota Fanning is making me feel ancient as she takes on the Runaways' lead vocalist, Cherie Curie with glossy lips and a sneering look. Still this looks like its going to be quite the ride.
