Footloose

ComingSoon

  • Excerpt: Anyone who reads this site with any regularity knows that I’m not really a big fan of re-makes. Unfortunately Hollywood doesn’t feel the same way as they seem to be a never-ending source of “new” material. As I’ve stated so many times in the past, if they’re done right – no problem. This is the case with Ocean’s Eleven , a much more enjoyable endeavor than the Sinatra version.

Footloose (2011) (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: In my opening I said that movie makers should stop re-imagining movies and it made me laugh that one of the special features was titled re-imagining footloose.  The 2011 Footloose was a decent movie but I think I would have been just as happy to pop in the 1984 Footloose .  I have to admit that this version offers a very sharp looking Blu-ray and impressive audio and video quality.

  • Summary: The modern updates seem to only be in a few songs, and Ariel dances a touch bit sluttier than her 1984 incarnation…that’s about it. This film is very close, and mostly redundant. It’ll find new fans and not break a single inch of new ground.

Footloose Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film A year after Flashdance created a music and fashion movement, Paramount decided to see if lightning would strike twice. They released Footloose , sort of a male version of Flashdance . The film certainly makes less of a fashion statment, but features an equally insane plotline, with music being more important than the actual story.

Footloose (2011)

High-Def Digest
24 February 2012
  • Conclusion: Craig Brewer reimagines a 1980s favorite for a new generation, and surprisingly, it works for the most part, despite it still retaining some the story's more mawkish attributes. This 'Footloose' is a rowdy teen drama about freedom of expression and confronting the tragedies which sometimes lead to rash, unjustified decisions. Ignoring a few of its weaker aspects, the remake comes with lots of energy and a spirited vibe that's addictive, making it a fun watch.

Footloose

  • Excerpt: For many people, myself namely included, “Footloose” holds a place as one of the defining movies of the 80’s. Sure, my generation may end in “X” and I hear there’s even a “Y” out there now, thus denoting the inevitable aging process; but I digress. “Footloose”, like so many John Hughes films, wasn’t only something that we watched at the movie theaters, but the songs were so overplayed (at a then “new” MTV) that it’s impossible not to hear any one of them without thinking...

Footloose (2011)

Cinema Blend
14 October 2011
  • Excerpt: There comes a point in every musical or dance film in which the viewer must decide whether or not to just go with it. He or she must choose to jump to the left and step to the right, or turn a nose up at the whole thing. There’s really no in-between. Footloose is a ridiculous movie. At times, it’s even absurd.
