What a difference 3 decades make

senam, blu-ray.com
21 June 2014
  • Excerpt: A movie from another time, even though it's only been 3 decades. No cellphones, no seatbelts, no helmets on bikes. Back to the simple pleasures with friends and lovers. You'd think this is a movie about Kevin Bacon rebelling against the sleepy town but it is rather about John Lithgow as the pastor who is slowly recovering from a personal tragedy and realizing that the townspeople may have gone too far in following his lessons and maybe it's time to wake up.

Cut Footloose (once again)

Steve Pulaski, IMDb
20 April 2013
  • Summary: The only real reason to pay any attention at all to the new Footloose is to watch the music video for the terrific Big and Rich song "Fake ID." Other than that, there is little appeal in the film, as it shamelessly recycles almost every scene, event, and line from its original counterpart, and the ones it doesn't, it modifies for an audience that is questionably existent.

Bad Acting + Terrible Remixes = Disappointment

  • Summary: I had such high hopes for this movie. I was excited by the beginning, tragic explanation of what happened to make the townsfolk think it was a good idea to create a string of very strict laws. That's where the excitement ended. Aside from a few entertaining scenes, i.e. Willard learning how to dance with a bunch of cute little girls, it was one confused "Seriously!?!" moment after another. In trying to stay true the the original, they made it laughably bad.

  • Excerpt: Heerlijke leuke dansfilm, het verhaal van Footloose is hetzelfde, maar dan meer de tijd van nu! Leuke acteurs en goede dansstukken. De film kijkt lekker weg en als je van dans houdt een aanrader. Ik geef deze film een 8.

I dunno

  • Excerpt: After reading the reviewers take on this movie I was skeptical buying it. I waited till BB had it for 7.99 before I bought thinking if it was a total disaster, then not much of a loss..However, I watched this on a 65" DLP and I thought it looked rather good for a catalog title.....Looks a lot better than the DVD..I thought the audio was excellent..Nice soundtrack from the 80's..

sucks

  • Summary: I don't understand why we need to remake great movies. this movie sucks. Stay with the original. I was disappointed in the music. I am happy that a few of the original songs were in it. one song was changed and sang different. That was horrible. The songs and dance scenes needed to be the way it was in the original movie. I understand that it is a 2011 version of the movie but I think too many things were changed. I am not knocking the actors in any way.

  • Excerpt: Prachtige (dans)film. Ren, Ariel en dominee Shaw Moore zetten een hele mooie en goede rol neer. Vond het, ondanks een paar emotionele stukken, een vrolijke film, goed verhaal, perfect in beeld gebracht. Na de dood van zijn moeder neemt zijn oom en tante Ren in huis, al snel komt hij erachter dat er na een tragisch ongeluk van 5 tieners een aantal wetten zijn toegepast, o.a. dat het verboden is om te dansen, geen harde muziek en er is een tijdklok.

They cut too loose.

zimmersgirl-412-382593, IMDb
2 July 2012
  • Summary: Yes, the original film was like a lot of 80s movies--campy, silly and sometimes just about the music—but this remake should have been forgotten. While the writers kept quite a few original lines and the director kept some iconic scenes, something was lost in translation. That loss cannot be blamed on any one part of the film but rather the disgraceful whole. There some changes that I enjoyed.

  • Excerpt: Dit was echt een leuke, swingende film! Goed verhaal en leuk gespeeld. Wat kunnen ze dansen zeg! Laat de kracht van de jeugd zien en de bezorgdheid van ouders. Mooi hoe alles tot een goed einde komt.

Footloose

Alexander, videoland
5 June 2012
  • Excerpt: "Footloose" is een Amerikaanse komedie van Craig Brewer en is feitelijk een remake van de gelijknamige prent uit 1984 met Kevin Bacon in de hoofdrol. De film vertelt een simpel en voorspelbaar verhaaltje in de trend van "Grease", met als ingrediënten meisjes, snelle auto's, stoere jongens, ouderwetse ouders en muziek. Het verhaal is vrij leuk, maar komt nu nogal gedateerd en ongeloofwaardig over, zelfs in een nieuw kleedje gestoken.
