    Review: 'Perfect Age' A Loving Tribute To The Spirit of Rock ‘N’ Roll

    Rock ‘n’ roll dramas don’t have it easy – they are permanently walking a tightrope above a long-way-down precipice. Make it all the way across, and you have "Almost Famous," slip and its 2001’s "Rockstar." Scott Rosenbaum’s "The Perfect Age Of Rock ‘N’ Roll" may occasionally stumble into lead-footed...

    New Databases Online

    There are at least 3 new databases in play. I'm glad FilmFinders has disappeared under the aegis of IMDbPro. Fierce ... which acquired Laurie Woodrow's TransPacific and Oliver Eberle's ShowBizDataPro some years ago is rumored to be about to introduce its database combining ShowBizDataPro with TransPacific's client-user-friendly db. FilmBizAsia of Patrick Frater and partners is now rolling out its database and subscribers are already signing up.
