Northern Woe

7 years, 1 month 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

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

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"

Best Original Song(with lyrics) (32 movies items)

" Flashdance... What a Feeling First when there's nothing but a slow glowing dream that your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind. All alone I have cried silent tears full of pride in a world made of steel, made of stone. Well, I hear the music, close my eyes, feel the rhythm, wrap around, take a hold of my heart. What a feeling. Bein's believin'. I can have it all, now I'm dancing for my life. Take your passion and make it happen. Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life. "

The 10 Biggest C*ckteases (10 movies items)

"Alex Owens - FLASHDANCE I had to include this scene because it basically introduced me to the phrase, "cocktease" (I'm pretty sure my dad screamed it at the screen in the theater). I had no idea what was going on. All I knew was that the dancing lady kept searching in her shirt for something and eventually found some sort of lacy slingshot. Why was Daddy so angry with her?"
