Rock ‘n’ Roll Week II Round Up!

Are your ears bleeding?

Back in July, we held our first “Rock ‘n’ Roll Week” with over 50 film reviews. Then we came back, as the rock ‘n’ roll could not be contained in just one week of reviews. So, this past week — from Sunday, September 20th to Saturday the 26th — we rolled out another 50-plus films concerned with all things rock ‘n’ roll on the big screen.

Sam, please . . . not a “Rock ‘n’ Roll Week III.”

Nah, why not!
