Entertainment Art major at College for Creative Studies. This has become an inspiration/play blog. Whatever I feel at the moment.
Thought that I needed to spread out a bit more from Deviantart and this seemed to be a viable way to do so. But I can still be found at http://desertfire.deviantart.com/
Random thoughts/writings and now art blog: "You Should Really Talk More"
Recently joined Fiction Press as well.
Okay, I just had to get this out there. To all the people saying that the Step Up series has no plot, the only thing good about it is the dancing…..
Can I just remind everyone something right now?
It’s a…. DANCE….. movie?
As in, the main focus is to showcase the DANCING. Just because it’s not Gone with the Wind or Titanic and doesn’t have Leonardio DiCaprio or god forbid, Tom Cruise in it doesn’t make it a bad movie.
If you wanna see an Academy award, drama movie then go watch it. I love them too, don’t get me wrong. I love drama movies, psychological thrillers, romance…etc.
But Step Up in particular is not necessary about who can make the most tearjerking, plot twisting film. It’s about….DANCE. It’s a musical movie about DANCE.
Personally, I think the Step Up series has a worthwhile plot. I always got life messages from the movies.
Step Up 2: Be yourself, don’t conform. It’s not about what you got; it’s about what you make of what you got. (And boy do I need to be reminded about this at this stage of my life)
Step Up 3: Fight for your dreams; don’t give them up
Step Up 1: (2 and 3 are my favs so I have to actively think about the first one which I enjoyed don’t get me wrong) You can always be better; don’t let your surrounding keep you down.
In fact based on what I’ve seen of Step Up 4, I can come up with some lessons already: You can find other weapons to fight with that doesn’t involve violence; You can take something that most would not think is not a way to be heard (ie dancing, making films, hey even cooking if you figure out a creative way to do so) and use it so you are heard.
And this is all from trailers, movie summary and behind the scene footage, thank you.
And while I’m on the subject….we need movies that are just fun. Good old pure fun. What is with Hollywood today that everyone gotta be a critic about everything? Can you just please watch a movie and just enjoy it without nickpicking?
Look you don’t like a movie….wonderful. There are plenty of movies I don’t like and if it was up to me wouldn’t have even existed. There are movies I wouldn’t be caught dead watching. There are movies that most people are all hyper about that I’m snoring through. There are movies I wouldn’t go see in theaters much less buy the DVD.
Everyone got what they like and what they don’t like and that is fine.
But to take a minute out of your day to actively write about the hate you feel for a movie is just unnecessary (unless you’re asked).
What you are doing is effectively crashing a party you don’t even want to be at. And may I ask, what sense is that?
So back on point, you tired of Step Up or whatever other movie that you don’t want to see……that’s great, I’m happy for you, just make sure you aren’t caught at the ticket booth or hiding in the back row of the theater with sunglasses looking like a 30’s detective.
I thank you and have a good day.
