Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

Rock of Ages: To See or Not to See?

I've been debating on whether or not I want to see Rock of Ages in theaters or wait until it gets out on video, and my inclination is steadily working its way towards the latter. The reviews haven't been very encouraging, and neither is the clip of Catherine Zeta-Jones singing “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” featuring what I hope is deliberately silly choreography.  If one of the few women I'd happily go bi for can't sell me on one of my favorite 80s guilty pleasure songs, what hope is there for the rest of the movie? (And why does the lip sync look so awkward?)

A future Musical Hell case? Won't know until I actually have seen it, really. For the moment, I think I'll stick with taking my nieces to see Brave instaed.
