Though this one was released way back in 2013 (which is a lifetime ago to some of you), it was brand new to me when I was digging around for Christmas tunes as delivered by some Hard Rock and Metal notables. When I saw that “Rock This Christmas Down” was a collaboration by former members of The Runaways, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie, I just had to add it to the context of our presentations and offer up some thoughts about it.

Film Review: “The Runaways” (2010)

Film: The Runaways
Starring: Dakota Fanning & Kristen Stewart
Studio: Apparition Studios
Genre: Rock Documentary
Rating: 3.75/5

Even though I have long enjoyed the music of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, I was never really up on the band that she originally hailed from – The Runaways. With this in mind I was very interested in seeing what the film about the band would be like when it came out in the cinemas in 2010. “The Runaways” is based on the memoir by singer Cheri Currie entitled “Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway” and as we find in all books of this kind is taken from one person’s perspective on the full history. The film stars Dakota Fanning as Currie and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and each of them are standout performers as these two musicians.
