Northern Woe

6 years, 2 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

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

" A Pittsburgh woman with two jobs as a welder and an exotic dancer wants to get into ballet school. I have been hearing of this movie for many years and so now I decided to watch it. I am only familiar with Jennifer Beals. That is one adorable Pitbull aww! So it was a bit slow and mostly boring. Some of the dances were interesting and unique though. The acting was also pretty good. It just wasn't my kind of movie."

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"Jennifer Beals shouldn't feel bad. She is a natural talent, she is fresh and engaging here, and only needs to find an agent with a natural talent for turning down scripts. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times An utterly preposterous piece of Reagan-era bootstrapping propaganda. - Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies "
