A good movie

4 years, 11 months ago at Dec 29 21:21
I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. To be honest, it is a rather obscure feature and the only reason I watched it the first time around was because it was Baz Luhrmann’s directing debut.

"Baz Luhrmann's first feature is pretty decent considering the budget. I wasn't sure what kind of movie it wanted to movie thought, dramatic romance or a silly comedy, it went back and forth."

A good movie

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again.

In fact, if I recall it correctly, I actually bumped into this DVD when I was at the supermarket. Anyway, I thought it was a decent watch. To be honest, ballroom dancing wasn’t really my thing (my wife was however rather glad that the movie was dealing with this topic) but you have to give Baz Luhrmann some credit for making a fairly entertaining feature about a rather tedious topic (at least, as far, as I’m concerned). For this directing debut, Luhrmann didn’t have some big stars at his disposal but it was ” read more
