Northern Woe

8 years 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.

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 ... read more

Directed by Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction, 9 1/2 Weeks) and featuring the Oscar-winning ... (more)

“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

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Brian De Palma was set to direct, and was a few weeks into preproduction before dropping this film to do Scarface. Paramount Pictures gave production rights to the original script for the film to Don Simpson after he was fired from his executive job with the studio, and many observers felt Paramount deliberately gave him a terrible property in hopes he would fail and his career would be ruined. In addition, Paramount had so little faith in the box office potential of the film that they sold off"
