Dance

SYNOPSIS: A passionate tale of love and liberation set amidst the ultraconservative confines of modern Georgian society, AND THEN WE DANCED follows Merab, a devoted dancer who has been training for ye…
Saturday Night Fever has one of the most iconic title sequences in movie history. It is a pop-culture snapshot of the disco-era 1970s: As soon as the opening funky bass of the Bee Gees' monster hit "S…
The naked boys are back in this sequel to the erratically uneven, mildly entertaining male stripper... er... "male entertainer" would-be fleshfest that was the hit 2012 film Magic Mike. Last we saw hi…
We've all seen this plot before: Outsider rebel kid gets in trouble one too many times. S/he is going to get sent off to reform school/Japan/Texas unless... said kid proves their mettle in a school/br…
It's kind of funny that there is a formula to dance movies. Doesn't anyone out there just, you know, dance for fun? To have a good time? Instead, dancing represents your deepest soul, and that ramshac…

It's hard to believe that the goofily funny, charmingly romantic, and gloriously, outrageously Australian Strictly Ballroom was Baz Luhrmann's first film. To hear from the DVD extras, it was a wonder …
Warner Bros. continues its celebration of 90 years in the business that is called Show with another fine collection of 20 of their hand-picked films with a theme. This time around the theme is (show o…
True Confession: I love the 80s in a way that could be described as sick, but hadn't see Flashdance until this year. I know! It makes me want to gasp in horror too! In my own defense, I will say that…
Now, I'm the first to admit that the Step Up movies are pure formula. Take a gritty/working class/inner city pretty young person and pair them with a hoity toity/rich/snobby/suburban pretty young pers…
