Northern Woe

6 years, 10 months ago at Feb 7 11:20
I loved the soundtrack (very retro for me.)

However, the whole film made me feel depressed. Like a classic Northern British film. I did enjoy the ending, it gave the film the lift it needed but too late.

It also makes me wonder why films like this are made. Where the entire outset is depressing and its not until the climax that you actually understand there is hope. I... read more

FLASHDANCE - Uma jovem (Jennifer Beals) de garra e talento não mede esforços para realizar o sonho de se tornar uma bailarina. Para tanto, durante o dia ela trabalha como operária e à noite solta seu corpo no ritmo alucinante das discotecas.

Flashdance I do enjoy the music is good the dancing is good, the storyline however is a little off beat. A young woman is a Steel worker by day, dirty dancer by night and her dream is to be a ballerina. Then on top of that the love story, if they kept it to the dancing, it might have been a bit better. The movie is what I call a chick flick for a sunday afternoon or a rainy day film. Non the less ... read more

Rotten on Rotten Tomatoes (223 movies items)

"33% Consensus: All style and very little substance, Flashdance boasts eye catching dance sequences- and benefits from an appealing performance by Jennifer Beals- but its narrative is flat footed."

25 From 83: My Favorite Films Of 1983 (25 movies items)

"A steel mill welder by day, a sexy dancer by night, Alex (short for Alexandra) is on a mission to make her dreams come true. With a determination that's fierce, a boyfriend who's her boss , and a pit bull that likes to watch, she's out to prove that when it comes to living on a wire between will and what will be, she's a maniac, maniac. On the dance floor. Movies about moving your feet was a craze that was really hitting its stride in the 80's. Flashdance is one of those dance flicks. And mos"

An average movie

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since it is considered a classic from the 80’s, I thought I might as well give it a try. Well, in my opinion, like other classics from this time period like ‘Footloose’ , it didn’t grow old very well, I’m afraid. I mean, I have to admit it, there was a pretty nice soundtrack but, a part from that, there is not much else to really admire in this movie. Of course, it faithfully follows the formula and remains watchable but not much more that. For Jennifer Beals, it was a star-making performance, even though her career never really took off afterwards. Somehow, it is not surprising because she has never done all those heavy dance moves and, something quite notorious, up to 3 other people were involved in the infamous audition scene ” read more
