i'd like to know your opinions on StepUp 2 the streets movie - likes/dislikes maybe
dancerjack saidi've yet to see a "dance movie" that i like beyond the dancing... most of them, this one included, have utterly lame scripts and dancers who should not open their mouths to deliver lines... the dancing? AWESOME. the story? eh. the acting? grrrrrl stop! how many times can the struggling-dancer-who-never-gives-up-and-therefore-attains-his/her-dream narrative be redone?
movies like "center stage" are repellent to me because they feed into the stereotype that dancers don't know anything except dance (which they can't talk about intelligently) and that we're oversexed and overdramatic. why don't they make a movie about what it's actually like to be a dancer?
i'd rather watch the dance outtakes and leave the stories alone.
