Rock 'n' Roll High School
As AMG notes, its the cult film that was deliberately made to be a cult film. A classic from 1978, this is the showcase for the legendary Ramones, which surprisingly though actually offers up a funny and interesting script and solid acting, making for a film that moves relatively quick in its 94 minutes. A notch up from the cheesier Grease musicals, this follows the tale of Riff Randell, resident party girl and Ramones fan at Vince Lombardi High as she locks head with the new principal Ms Togar, who bans rock music from the school. Even if you don't like the Ramones, the film is still immensely enjoyable and engaging. Never a dull moment! RNRHS1 $20 [traffic sounds recommended]
