The Boat that Rocked (2009)



Ah.. the 1960's! Back in the day when the A-list of British rock bands reigned supreme.. BBC was only playing classical music and jazz instead of .. ROCK and ROLL. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Yardbirds, The Hollies.. all took a backseat. What a pathetic situation.. and with no commercial radio stations to fill in the gap, this soon created the phenomenon of pirate radio ships. These pirate radio ships operated just three miles offshore, but good enough to be outside the bounds of English law and they began playing pop and rock music 24 hours a day.
Representing the Illegal, the Mysterious and every girl's heart-throb pirate DJ, they eventually they had 25,000,000 listeners.

The premise of the movie stretches the imagination - A renegade, radio boat at sea!

Cumi found this show moderately entertaining.. with some unbelievably hollywood-ish parts.. but.. I loved it! (Girls {and boys} check out the phenomenally sexy
Midnight Mark - Tom Wisdom, played Astinos in '300').
Call it the romantic, musician in me.
[Cumi - watch out for the XXX version .. 'The Booty that Rocked'!]

Also, the wardrobe is amazing..
THREE words.. Apple-green Leggings!


Go watch!

I LOVE TWIGGY!

(watch out for her black and white photos that adorn the ship's walls!)
