    It's Always Fair Weather

    ★★★½

    I've seen the classic rollerskating-tapping dance before, and it's still absolutely the best part. I wish it had gone on for 10 more minutes. Gene Kelly is just the best. Aside from that, there's some really cool dance scenes, and I liked how cynical it was at times. Dolores Gray was hilarious, it was funny to see the early jabs at TV.

The fighters in Army of Shadows look like professors and dads, not Brad Pitt or Daniel Craig.…
