Top 7 Dance Sequences in a Non-Musical Movie

17 October 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

Sometimes we want to move our feet and tap our toes, but we don’t realize it until the moment is upon us. Thankfully, movies are here to rescue us. Sure, there are the full-out musicals like Evita, and Singin’ in the Rain. I’m not talking about those. And then there are the films like Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing and Footloose. But those are films that thrive on a soundtrack and dance numbers within the dramatic story. So, even though the remake of Footloose is the reason I thought of this Top 7, we’re going deeper. For this Top 7, we’re hitting the dance sequences that came out of nowhere, made you recheck which genre you’re sitting down for, then wish the characters wouldn’t stop moving and/or grooving. Not surprisingly, comedy makes its presence known.

Box-Office Oracle: Looking for 'Real Steel' Robots to Cut Loose Over 'Footloose' and 'The Thing'

13 October 2011 11:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Real Steel got us back on track last weekend, but the newborn streak is in real danger (again). Dancing or robots, remakes or CGI, that's the call. Let's break it down! Laremy predicted the #1 movie correctly 1 Week In A Row Real Steel There's not much precedent here as October is generally where horror opens strong. Children's dramas? Where can we turn for a comparable? Red? Erm, no. The Social Network? Not hardly. Meet the Parents? Nope. My elongated point is this: pulling a percentage bleed out of this outlier is no easy task.

Which is why I'm going bullish with a 33 percent dip. Family dollars, you bet against them at your peril. Sure, discriminating predictors out there could say, "Yeah, but just take a gander at High School Musical 3: Senior Year! That opened at $42m! Teen dollar 4life!" And they'd be right, in that one instance, for the third in a franchise, »

Lemonade Mouth – DVD Review

25 May 2011 4:50 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

DVD Review

Lemonade Mouth

Directed by: Patricia Riggen

Cast: Bridgit Mendler, Adam Hicks, Hayley Kiyoko, Naomi Scott, Blake Michael, Christopher McDonald

Running Time: 1 hr 53 mins

Rating: Nr

Due Out: May 24, 2011

Plot: A group of high schoolers start up a rock band after they’re sent to detention in the music room.

Who’S It For? If High School Musical was trying to sell the concept of high school to kids in elementary school, then Lemonade Mouth is aimed at middle schoolers. Boys and girls that are actually in high school won’t dig this one (or at least, they shouldn’t).

Movie:

Thankfully, Disney hasn’t dished out another form of the singing dollhouse that defines the sparkly and squeaky-clean High School Musical franchise. Lemonade Mouth gets its designer jeans a little dirty, as it plays with a fuller and larger list of characters, and even the most “Disney Princess »

Talkin' Trilogies - Issue #4 - The "High School Musical" Trilogy

17 May 2011 9:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen charts the 'High School Musical' trilogy...

No wait! Come back!

Alright, so this may hardly be “one of the greatest trilogies of all time”, however I once again refer to my original post and my rules:

1. It has to be a trilogy

And like it or not, this is a trilogy of films.

Now, don’t think that I am reviewing this series of films to bad mouth them. Quite the contrary in fact, I actually like these films. And with this issue of Talkin’ Trilogies, I hope to show you why.

So, let us take a trip back to 2006 where the Disney Channel was getting ready to premiere a film that, unbeknownst to them, was going to take over the world.

High School Musical (Ortega, 2006)

When unknown writer Peter Barsocchini wrote the screenplay for High School Musical, I’m sure he had no idea what »

20 April 2011 1:52 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Blu-ray Review

Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure

Directed by: Michael Lembeck

Cast: Ashley Tisdale, Austin Butler, Bradley Steven Perry

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Rating: G

Due Out: April 18, 2011

Plot: A spoiled girl (Tisdale) who was in a few high school musicals adventures to the Big Apple in an attempt to make it big on Broadway.

Who’S It For?: Indoctrinated fans of High School Musical will be able to take away more of this film’s entertainment value than those unfamiliar with Sharpay Evans and her legacy as a Wildcat. Young kids will enjoy the couple of song and dance performances in this movie, along with Tisdale’s Barbie doll performance. Whether this movie is really healthy for kids is another question. Anyone that’s actually gone to New York to chase a Broadway dream will smash their TVs.

Corbin Bleu 'Completely Shocked' Over Ashley Tisdale's Naked Pose

18 April 2011 8:32 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

The "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" actor, Corbin Bleu admitted that he was "completely shocked" over his castmate, Ashley Tisdale's naked pose for May Issue of Allure magazine. During a recent interview at Gatorade's G-Series Fit Launch Event, the 22-year-old actor confessed that he didn't know about Ashley's provocative shoot.

"What?! I did not hear about this, are you kidding me?" he startlingly said when he was asked what he thought about Ashley's naked pose for the mag. "Tis! I gotta see this. Good for you, Tis," he exclaimed.

However, Corbin showed his support toward his "HSM" mate. Minutes later, after he recovered from his "completely surprised" condition, the former Disney star stated, "If you're comfortable enough to show it, then flaunt it! I gotta check it out, I had no clue."

Speaking of provocative issue, Corbin admitted that he always wanted his parents to approve whatever he does. »

April 2011 Preview

30 March 2011 4:27 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's been a depressing few months at the box office, but April hopes to be the month that finally turns things around. First off, there will be significantly more nationwide releases than April 2010 (16 versus 12). It's also the first month in 2011 that has a healthy supply of would-be blockbusters, including sequels like Fast Five and Scream 4 and accessible family fare like Rio and Hop. Still, last April was by-far the highest-grossing on record with $752.6 million, so another down month could be in the offing.April 1Hop, Source Code and Insidious aim to kick things off on a strong note this weekend. From Illumination Entertainment, the company behind Despicable Me, Hop is the latest entry in the increasingly tired CGI star genre. The movie essentially looks like Alvin and the Chipmunks with a holiday angle, two factors which should work in its favor. Even if the movie doesn't open hugely, it »

Vanessa Hudgens Throwing Herself to Party Lifestyle

27 March 2011 8:58 PM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Vanessa Hudgens is enjoying her new party lifestyle following her recent split from Zac Efron. The 22-year-old actress, who separated from her "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" co-star in December after five years of dating when work commitments got in the way of their romance, is reportedly "having a blast" and is enjoying being single.

A source told the National Enquirer magazine, "She has been having a blast hanging out with friends. She isn't really missing him." The brunette beauty was recently spotted stocking up on cases of beer at her local store and allegedly told owners she was in the mood for a party. The source said, "She said she was having a party and she was really excited."

However, Vanessa recently admitted she hadn't ruled out the possibility of getting back together with the "High School Musical" hunk in the future. She said, "We're still friends. Who »

Bad Movies We Love: High School Musical 3: Senior Year

23 March 2011 9:20 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Are you skeptical of Vanessa Hudgens's ability to play "street-smart" in Sucker Punch this weekend? You are? Settle down and breathe, because she already played "book-smart" and "Stanford-bound" in High School Musical 3: Senior Year. I anticipate your complaints: "Yes, Movieline, this is a bad movie," you caw (while secretly groping the "W" on your self-made Wildcats letter jacket), "but is it lovable?" I contend that it is! And not just because Zac Efron is the only person in history to look more like a Fisher Price Little Person as he ages. Let's dribble the basketball of intellect between our legs and figure it out. »

Vanessa Hudgens Reveals Meaning Behind Butterfly Tattoo

3 March 2011 8:49 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Vanessa Hudgens got a butterfly tattoo because she was named after the beautiful insect. The "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" star recently had an image of the creature etched onto her neck and says it's something she has always wanted to have done because of the significance of the animal to her life.

"It was very last minute, but I've actually wanted it for years," she said. "A butterfly landed on my mom's stomach a week before I was born and that's how I got my name, because Vanessa means butterfly, it's a Latin derivative."

While the tattoo may look very pretty, the 22-year-old actress says she feels quite rebellious getting it done. During an appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman", she said, "It's my very first tattoo, and I kind of feel like a b****s now!"

As well as getting a piece of body art, Vanessa »

Set Visit: Sucker Punch!

1 March 2011 10:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Zack Snyder earned the title of "visionary director" by creating a string of successful and groundbreaking, fan-favorite films. The director first gained notoriety for his remake of George A. Romero's classic horror movie Dawn Of The Dead and then followed that up with two other extremely popular motion pictures, which were both adapted from famous graphic novels. 300, based on legendary comic book writer Frank Miller's popular story, and Watchmen based on equally legendary comic book scribe Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel, which is considered by many to be one of the greatest comic books ever written. Last fall, the director released his first animated film, Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, which received mostly positive reviews and decent box office numbers. Zack Snyder was also recently chosen by The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan to helm the new adventures of the man-of-steel in the upcoming film, »

‘Bambi’ Disney Blu-Ray Combo Pack

28 February 2011 9:28 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Blu-ray Review

Bambi

Directed by: James Algar, Sam Armstrong, David Hand, Graham Heid, Bill Roberts, Paul Satterfield, Norman Wright

Cast: Hardie Alright, Stan Alexander, Bobette Audry

Running Time: 1 hr 10 mins

Rating: G

Due Out: March 1, 2011

Plot: Bambi follows a young deer and several of his forest friends. Together his friends, Thumper and Flower, as well as his mother teach him about life in the forest.

Who’S It For? Children. Hopefully with their short attention span, the fact that Bambi has no actual plot will be lost on them. Hardcore Disney fans will be glad to see this beautiful transfer, but may be disappointed in the film since its childlike wonder has worn off.

Movie:

Bambi is one of those movies that, unfortunately, time has not been kind to. I remember watching it when I was a kid and being fascinated by the deer and his friends, but years later? »
