Check It. The Runaways on DVD.

The Runaways is out on DVD today. I think most people skipped this one in the theater, but I think it's a perfect rental. The band's story is definitely interesting, and Kristen Stewart admittedly looks like a great Joan Jett.

Director Floria Sigismondi is best known for her music videos, which probably means the film is good at least visually, even if other areas are lacking.

Back in April, Los Angeles Magazine wrote about the film, and why rock and roll biopics either succeed or fail--with Runaways falling somewhere in between.
