It was only earlier this year that I finally saw Rock ‘n’ Roll High School for the first time. But since Roku and Netflix Streaming, which features this film available for watching at any given moment, I’ve been tempted to watch it with the kids. So, now I did. At least, with Felix.
My son is 13 and has started getting into music. One of the first ventures was to borrow my Ramones CD’s to burn.
I don’t have a lot to add to the things I wrote about the film back in March. I mean, it’s not “squeaky clean”. But it’s almost squeaky clean.
Felix liked it. He thought it was “weird”, which isn’t too uncommon a comment from him on things. But he laughed a lot. He liked Paul Bartel.
