Northern Woe

13 years, 8 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.

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)

"A steel mill welder by day, a sexy dancer by night, Alex (short for Alexandra) is on a mission to make her dreams come true. With a determination that's fierce, a boyfriend who's her boss , and a pit bull that likes to watch, she's out to prove that when it comes to living on a wire between will and what will be, she's a maniac, maniac. On the dance floor. Movies about moving your feet was a craze that was really hitting its stride in the 80's. Flashdance is one of those dance flicks. And yea"

"While it is an iconic 80s film it's not exactly my kind of entertainment. I will admit to appreciating some of the techniques more than I thought I would."

"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 "
