One of the best remakes I have ever seen
I admit that I loved the original Footloose and was not happy to hear they were remaking it - remakes are almost never good. But what a pleasant surprise this was. The update was nice, it stayed true to the original but the update on the music and dancing and the bus race was awesome. I am glad they didn't play chicken with tractors again, that is the right kind of change to a movie. I will say that the only thing I did not like about the movie was that they choose an unknown country singer and a "Nick Teen Star" to perform "Almost Paradise" - This song is iconic. Ann Wilson is amazing and the new version of this song is really a let down. Also, not that I wanted a movie full of cameos, but I do thing that Kevin Bacon should have played the judge. Just a small cameo would not have hurt. All in all I really did enjoy seeing this movie. I took my 20 year old daughter to see it - the theater was full of people who were around when the original was released. Everyone sang the songs, which was nice, and applauded at the end. People need to do that more. Go see it - it is worth it!
Dark Victory (1939)
Bette's Greatest Triumph
I am a huge Gone With the Wind fan and love Vivian Leigh, so when I heard that Dark Vicrory's Bette Davis lost the Oscar by a very few votes, I was surprised. Even though Bette Davis is my favorite actress of all time. So I watched Dark Victory. I love this movie and now feel that Bette should have won, it was the greatest acting her career. The movie is beautiful and has several great supporting performances. Including Ronald Reagan (as a great drunk), Geraldine Fitzgerald and Bogie. The wonderful story flows and when you mix in Bette's great work, this movie shines. The beginning of the movie details young Judith's status as a socialite perfectly, you don't hate her like you could by today's standards. Then the dramatic diagnosis and medical drama leads directly into the healing of body and soul. The love story and friendships are portrayed to perfection. Bogie even becomes lovable, which shows how Judith as changed since falling in love. I would recommend this movie to everyone.
