Northern Woe

10 years, 6 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.

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 ... read more

Description: whata feeling… A hit movie that became a cultural sensation, Flashdance delivers an electrifying mix of music, drama and dance that dazzles the senses as it touches the heart. Jennifer Beals stars as Alex Owens, a fiercely determined 18-year old with one all-consuming dream: to study at the Pittsburgh Conservatory of Dance. Working during the day as a welder and at night as an exotic dancer, Alex bravely pursues her dream, undertaking an unforgettable journey that reveals the power of her convictions and teaches her the meaning of love. Directed by Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction, 9 1/2 Weeks) and featuring the Oscar-winning ... (more)

"First-time I have seen this since it's initial cinema release back in 1983. Small town girl who works as a welder during the day and dances in a club at night, dreams of becoming a classically trained dancer. Plot-wise it's as thin as paper with little or no real character development but the music is good, Adrian Lyne's direction is flashy and Jennifer Beal, even though doesn't do the dancing, is a likeable lead. It just feels very empty."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2018 (33 movies items)

" Starz- 1hr. 34min. First Viewing Flashdance is an exceptionally made film. The dancing, the editing, the look, the sound; it all makes for a technically superb film. Unfortunately, the story is chock-full in plot contrivance, terrible characters and unrelenting cheese. While this does make the film fun at times (though it's weirdly sincere streak undercuts that), but it's more often a slog. If it wasn't for an endearing performance from Jennifer Beals, it would be near-impossible to care about "

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: August (25 movies items)

"August 3 "When you give up your dream, you die." I'm not the biggest fan of the whole dance movie genre, but this was actually pretty good. I'm mostly not interested in watching other people dance, but this movie is more story-driven than anything which I really liked. It was a very charming movie with a good story as far as dance movies go, likeable characters and it was also really funny at times. Overall this was a solid movie and it's probably the best dance movie in general."
