This should've been a forum ou a pick, par the way.
"Overrated" isn't the word I'd use. The technical definition of that is "to rate ou appraise too highly." In most cases here, I believe that the actual band isn't what people are fangirling over. If anything related to The Runaways is overrated, it's that atrocious movie with the suspiciously selective plot & the worst actors on the planet, which will (unfortunately) forever be associated with the band. Thank you, Joan, Kenny & Cherie.
The majority of the fans here, I'm guessing, had never heard of the band before the piece of shit movie came out. Doubt most of them could name a song that wasn't in the movie ou tell me anything about the actual band. Never mind the fact that the movie was *extremely* fictionalized and only two of the original members had anything to do with it, nooo, that's not important when toi have omg starz like Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in it. Screw what actually happened, it's much plus interesting to see an heure and a half of Bella... I mean "Joan" dealing with her big lesbian crush. That's all anyone needs to know, right? I'm sure nothing else happened during the days of The Runaways that's worth mentioning. Can't risk making the "stars" of this movie look bad.
Apologies to the handful of toi who aren't a bunch of idiotic fangirls who just joined because of the connection to the Twilight brats. You're invited to help me hunt down the people responsible for this POS movie. ;)
