Cherry Bombs

I’m not going to lie, I’m excited about this movie. Will it meet expectations, I hope so. Are Dakota, Kristen & company as bad-ass as Cherie, Joan & company? Well that’s not even physically possible. But I give them an A for effort. I mean, it can’t be easy having to both look, act and sing like the real Runaways. A look and listen below at both the real and Memorex in action. Ch-ch-ch-choose your favorite.

The Runaways, Circa 2010

I just wish I didn't know Dakota's age. Not sure I can get past that.

Despite my doubts, I still can't wait to see this.

Um, am I the only one who sees Kristen Stewart as Joan and thinks of Shane (TLW)?

Kristen does look like a mini-Shane. Don't think I like it.

Been a huge fan of both The Runaways and JJ and the Blackhearts for more than 30 years. I've seen both bands live many times and I think the kids do a reasonable job with the music. Let's face facts - Cherie Curry can't sing her way out of a wet paperbag - it was Joan who everyone came out to see and Joan who was the driving force behind the band. That being said - can't wait for the release so I can relive some of my wild child roots.

@Syd: I was skeeved out by her age until I realized...she's pretty much the age of the real Runaways when they started the band. =)

I'm excited. I'm going to trick my mind into thinking I'm time traveling back to the time when I was a young cherry bomb which will prevent me from feeling like a cougar when I drool. I hope.
