A excellent rock movie about a group of kids who come together to form a rock band. "Bandslam" is not another throw-away teen movie. it's goes beyond the bands and the competiton. Bill Burton is a new kid in town who likes to e-mail to David Bowie. His mother is play by Lisa Kudrow, who understand his pain. One day he was paired up with Sa5m played by Vanessa Hudgens, whose acting is much better than the last High School Musical. I love the name Sa5m. It's a cool name for a girl. Between the two a rock band is form to complete against other rock band in the upcoming Bandslam, that's the title of the movie. I love the performance of the strong small teen cast which includes Gaelan Connell as the nerd Bill Burton, Aly Michalka is the other girl in his life. And oh yes, the music in this movie rocks. "Bandslam" should be compare with "School of Rock" which came out in 2003, but "Bandslam"should deserve to stand on it's own. while watching the movie, it reminded me of director /Writer John Hughes who died a few weeks ago. He was on my mine as I sat though this movie.
