High School Musical 2 (2007)
Great! Sharpay made the whole movie!
I thought this was great, and better than the first one. I have to say, Ashley Tisdale done some brilliant acting as Sharpay, she made the whole movie, I loved how she said her lines in such an evil tone and how she made out that her character was a spoilt, attention seeker. I loved everything about this movie, it was just great....however, there was one musical number that I though really let it down.
***spoler starts here****
...Bet on it, what was that all about?!?! It's a good song but it's just ruined on how they presented it in the movie, Zac Efron (Troy Bolton) just goes around doing some extra cheesy dance moves on a golf course, and thats the whole song. What! All the other musical numbers (that wearn't 'romantic duets') had either a great dance routine to go with it or something eye catching like Sharpay's Version of You are the music in me (which i have to say made me smile and had to be, in my opinion, one of the best songs in the whole movie) But with Bet On It, it looked like the whole dance (if you can call it a dance) was made up on the spot. ...and the song it's self was pretty pointless from how they edited it. It came in just after Troy saw a letter saying no staff are allowed to be in the talent show, now tell me how that exact point will make you realise you need to change and not the point where you lost your friends and girlfriend to selfishness. I would have given the movie 10 out of 10 if it wasn't for this one musical number.
I have to say, the editing was a bit naff, I'm not sure if it was the edditing or just lack of preperation for each shot e.g, in everyday, one second Troy's jacket is flying from wind, and in the next shot there is no wind and it's perfectly calm. And in the scene where Troy and Gabriella kiss, the final time they kiss when the sprinklers are on and then they hug, it switches to there friends dancing around and then back to troy and Gabriella hugging, and it's obvious that some of the shot they just showed of them cuddling was repeated because they do it in the exact same way.
...AND if you are a Miley Cyrus fan and are looking forward to her being in the movie, don't, there's like one 4 second scene of her dancing in the final All For One scene and that's it, that's what they call a 'special appearance from her in the movie'.
However, excluding that, it was overall a great film, great acting by everyone (especially Ashley tisdale) My favourite musical numbers were Work this out - loved it, loved how in the middle they made it so it was like they were making all the music from using kitchen appliances and so on. You are the music in me (Reprise) - It was funny, Ashley just pulled Zac along everywhere through the whole musical number. Everyday - Loved this duet between Troy and Gabriella, but Zac (troy) almost always forgot to put the microphone to his mouth but yet his voice was coming out perfectly, even when the microphone was by his waste. I loved the end bit though, how they all came together and formed that circle. All For One - Loved the dancing in it
Please note, i'm not saying Zac Efron didn't act well in this movie I just meant that one musical number that he just so happened to be in was stupid, in fact, I thought he acted extremely well, everyone did, however, Vanessa did seem a little bit too innocent in the movie.
I still recommend you see it though.
