TV Movie Review: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Rebooted on ABC

18 May 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s a thought experiment. Take any film you love, in any genre — “Star Wars: A New Hope,” “Eraserhead,” “9 to 5,” whatever — and imagine it reshot, nearly scene-for-scene, with a cast of new actors inhabiting the exact same story. Same location, same era, same characters, and frequently, even the same dialogue. Is it wide-eyed homage or larceny? Let’s add a confounding element: The only thing that’s changed is that the new version is bloated with seven or eight slick musical numbers, where the characters suddenly start singing the lyrics to the well-known songs that make up the soundtrack. Oh, and one of the characters solves racism. Now how do you feel about it?

There is not enough space here to fully engage with what is so lovely about the 1987 film “Dirty Dancing,” an unconventional, gritty, sexy dance-romance that has become one of the most beloved films of the ‘80s. The »

Beauty and the Beast (2017) movie review: ever just the same, never a surprise

14 March 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Like a theme-park mounting of the 1991 cartoon, or the blandified pop version of an enchanting signature character tune. A watered-down pastiche of itself. I’m “biast” (pro): love the 1991 film…

I’m “biast” (con): …and saw no need for a remake

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

First there was Disney’s 1991 animated feature Beauty and the Beast, which is one of the most perfect movies ever and helped kickstart the Disney renaissance and completely holds up even now, a quarter of a century later. But the other thing it helped kickstart was Princess Madness, the license to print money that Disney stumbled upon back then. So in 2002 we got a cashing-in IMAX version of Beauty and the Beast, and it was still glorious in spite of the mercenary motive. And in 2012 we got a cashing-in 3D version of Beauty and the Beast, »

While the current TV season is winding down, ABC is bringing the season to a close in a huge way, debuting a new three-hour musical remake of Dirty Dancing. While it still isn't known when the trailer may arrive, the network has released the poster today, which gives us our first look at the new Frances "Baby" Houseman (Abigail Breslin) and Johnny Castle (Colt Prattes). This ABC Original Movie Event will air Wednesday, May 24 from 8 Pm to 11 Pm Et, which is shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated events this season.

Entertainment Weekly debuted this new poster, which comes just a few months after ABC announced the May 24 premiere date. Before the special was announced, some believed that ABC was trying to tap into the success of live musicals like NBC's Hairspray, but when Abigail Breslin came aboard in December 2015, it was revealed that this three-hour movie will be taped prior to broadcast, »

Blu-ray Review – Dirty Dancing: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

30 January 2017 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dirty Dancing, 1987.

Directed by Emile Ardolino.

Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Wayne Knight, Cynthia Rhodes, Kelly Bishop, Jack Weston, Jane Brucker, and Lonny Price.

Synopsis:

In the summer of 1963, teenager Baby Houseman goes on a family holiday and falls in love with a rebellious dance teacher.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and when you’re nostalgic about a film that celebrates nostalgia you know you’re a) overly sentimental and b) getting old. Yes, we’re at that stage now when those classic movies we loved growing up in the 1980s are getting anniversary editions and this year sees, amongst others, Dirty Dancing getting dusted down and re-packaged in a special 30th anniversary collector’s edition Blu-ray.

It is very doubtful that anybody reading this will need a plot rundown but just in case you’re totally oblivious to the charms of romantic musicals it goes like this: »
