Silly Sunday: Street Dancer 3D, the Way It Should Have Been!

We watched it on Friday, which was super fun. But also we got all upset about the half done love story and I started thinking about how I would have written it to have a whole other second half that gave a more satisfying love story structure instead of the very light weight plot with a lot of dance competitions instead of relationship drama.

Street Dancer 3 Review (SPOILERS): If I Say the Words “Shirtless Dance of Torment”, Are You In or Out?

Plot? Whoooooooo cares???? It’s all about the lights and the glamour and the big flippy things and so on. So read this review, you will still want to see the film anyway. Or not want to see the film if you are a hopelessly practical person who has no love for dance battles and learning lessons and that moment when the power goes out and there is no music but then magically they create their OWN music!!!! Also, the plot is hilarious so read my summary for the giggles.

Oh, and this review needs some formatting fixes, I’ll do it soon, I just want to throw it up quick now before I take the dog for a walk.

Happy Varun Dhawan Day! Final Review, Most Recent Film, KALANK!!!

Well, that was fun!!!! If it had released 20 years ago, it would be a solid hit and forgotten in a month, and then it would pop-up on TV occasionally and people would say “oh yeah, that movie!” I don’t know how it will do in today’s world at the box office, but at least critically I want to treat it as the nice unambitious pleasant fairy tale it aspires to be, not as the Great Noble Brilliant Movie that it wasn’t even trying to be. I suspect other reviewers might ding it for not being the Great Noble Brilliant Movie they thing it should be without realizing it never wanted to be that.
