according to me, obviously. listed alphabetically.
Step Up 3D
Two Worlds. One Dream.
A tight-knit group of New York City street dancers, including Luke and Natalie, team up with NYU freshman Moose, and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip hop dancers in a high-stakes showdown that will change their lives forever.
The less plot these movies have the more I enjoy them, same goes for dialogue ;-)
This kids are so wholesome, I felt like a badass drinking a bottle of Cider while watching this.
The "I won't dance" sequence with curly-haired Michael Cera and his gal is absolutely delightful <3
The final battle dance thing goes on for about 3 years too long. But still, all in all this is enjoyable dance fluff :-)
WHAT'S THE JAPANESE SONG PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND IN THE FAIRGROUND AT 1H15M IN? IT'S NOT LISTED ON THE SOUNDTRACK. IT'S MY NEW JAM.
Cinema of agility in its purest form. Bliss.
Pure, hyperactive energy streamlined straight into the heart of every seamless sequence. The run-of-the-mill "save the dance center" story meets the ultra-stylization of its structure and choreography. These two extremes of intense formalism and dry classicism should clash instantly (see the soporific Scott Pilgrim), but Chu's direction and just the overall personality that it holds so dear to its heart that no other dance film this decade has even come close to match makes it one of the more complex films in the genre. It never lets its hollow storyline take charge for even a second and this goes beyond than the fact that there is more time and care put into the inventively lightweight dance sections. A true product of digital culture and its technologies.
The non-dancing parts are, like, strictly from hunger, man, but if that long single-take number doesn't make you think of Singin' in the Rain just a little, you need to be having more fun.
An entire squaggle of middlers 'stepped up' for this all time classic romp. On the downside this is no 'Honey. Some of the chicks looked like they should be en-fenced. All is not lost however, this version shits on 'Step Up' and 'Step Up Two - Take It To The Streets', although the latter has a much much cooler name.
In summary, 'Step Up 3 - Take It Back Inside' has enough side boob and velour derrière to enrapture boys from 12.5+
aka Step Up 3
I've not seen Step Up 1 or 2, I don't like dancing, this wasn't in the 3D format and it was my wife's choice ...and yet I kinda sorta enjoyed this.
It felt a bit like a Fast and Furious film but with dancing instead of car chases and explosions. At first I saw parallels with Tokyo Drift, and then they really push the surrogate family angle, and I later found out that certain cameos and/or characters are from the two previous films!
So yes, it's silly and predictable but I found it strangely watchable for what it is. 5/10.
This movie is really dumb. But it's got some great dancing
Mad Chadd's robot-ing and Moose/Camille in the streets give me life.
literally the best movie ever made
A true modern masterpiece
Cinematography/Visual Effects: 4/5
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Warning(s): mild profanity
i like it when shit gets on the camera
My predilection for stuff like this is insane.
Sharni Vinson for Supreme Earth Overlord 2016.
The mythology deepens as the series follows a fully upstepped Moose from part 2 and random sister character from part 1 to New York where the street dancing ethos has led to all out dance war between the rival factions the likes of which the city hasn't suffered since West Side Story. Unfortunately Moose is sidelined in favor of the blandest leads yet and while the production values are higher, the dancing isn't significantly more impressive except for that one guy who does a mean robot.
Some of the weird, wonderful and woefully crap films that my daughter, Ellie likes. In the order, she thought of…
