Rock of Ages (2012)

Rock of Ages


Genre: Drama/Musical


Starring: Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman, Alec Baldwin


If there ever was a movie that misrepresents something that it is trying to portray, it has to be this movie. Like the name says, it tries to tell you the story of the rock genre of music and what happens behind it’s ugly doors. Stacee Jaxx (Cruise) is a veteran rock star who has decided to quit his band and start a solo career. Dennis Dupree (Baldwin) is the owner of a bar called the Bourbon Room and was the same place that Stacee first performed and gained fame. He wishes to restart his career once again from the same place. Sherrie (Hough) is a small-town girl who has come to LA looking to start a career in singing and starts working as a waitress in the Bourbon Room. Patricia (Zeta-Jones) is the mayors wife who is trying to kill all establishments that play rock music since it is the song of the devil. The movie is so wrong and bad on so many levels, I don’t even know where to begin. First of all, every 10 minutes someone has to break out in a song and dance which, very shockingly, is not rock but every other genre apart from it. The actual movie seems to have lesser runtime than the songs itself. It does not have any objective, bad casting options and an extremely ridiculous story. Imagine this, you get off the bus in a city you have never been to and your suitcase gets stolen at that very instant. Instead of running behind the thief, you stomp your feet and shout. Another random dude comes up and comforts you and says that he may be able to get you a job at a local pub. You instantly forget about your bag, belongings, money or anything that you may need and get very happy and walk away with him. Yep, this happens in the movie, and yes they sing too.


Thumbs up: Some iconic rock cover songs were good

Thumbs down: Very bad representation of rock as a genre, too many songs and dances


Rating: 3.9/10

So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
