Not only a great rock 'n' roll film, but a great comedy as well, "ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL" has been released by BUENA VISTA as a special edition.
The plot focuses on Riff Randell(PJ Soles), a huge Ramones fan is eagerly awaiting the pending arrival of her favorite band for a concert. Unfortunately all of her plans to skip school in order to get tickets aren't working due to the principal's actions. A new arrival at school is smitten with Riff and attempts to learn how to get "in" with her, while another girl is smitten with the new arrival. Get it? Doesn't matter because the film's just pure fun.
In spite of a limited budget, the film has a terrific look throughout.
BUENA VISTA has preserved the film's 1.85:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. The overall image is suitable but disappointing, as there are numerous artifacts. Contrast is surprisingly impressive.
BUENA VISTA has provided a Dolby Digital 2.0 mono mix. It's a fine job, without any distortion and decent fidelity. The Ramones' numbers are perfectly represented here, although, we'd have preferred a 5.1 remix!
There are plenty of extras, including two audio commentaries, a featurette, and concert footage outtakes.
