(OK) The street dance scene, a flase climax in the middle of the film, retains its force, its 80s iconicity; but the rest of the film is cheaper. What flows is the force, the tone, the style of it , full of unknown characters...

A good movie

I remember it very well, when I was a kid, I used to watch the TV-show based on this movie from time to time. Anyway, even though it was a decent watch, it never became a favorite of mine and it took me more than a decade to finally watch this movie. Eventually, it is my wife who pointed out that I should definitely check it out and the fact that it was directed by Alan Parker made the whole thing... read more

Description: If they really got what it takes, it's goingito take everything they got. Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That's what New York City High School for the Performing Arts guarantees. Stardom? That's something the school's teenage musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers strive for. Fame sings the body electric, celebrating the growing-up process of honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, living life. Director Alan Parker (Evita, The Commitments) brings an energetic style to the crisscrossing stories of students (including future Academy Award winner Irene Cara, Paul McCrane (ER), Barry Miller (Saturday Night ...

250 Of My Favorite Films From The 80's, y'all (250 movies items)

" Going to school in New York can be alot fun. Especially, if during lunch, everyone is allowed not only to break out into song and dance, but also, to then spill out into the busy streets of the Big Apple, without inciting a riot. It's no wonder that people back then wanted to live forever. Makes miss the innocence of the early 80's. Not to mention the headbands, leg-warmers and stylishly torn sweatsuits. Let's get physical, y'all. "

Anyway, even though it was nothing really groundbreaking, I thought that most of it worked actually pretty well. Furthermore, you have to keep in mind that this movie was made a couple of decades before all those dance movies such as the โ€˜Step Upโ€™ franchise and it has pretty much become the blue-print in this genre. Eventually, almost 30 years, they would come up w” read more
