Take the Lead Movie Review

Buy at Amazon

Review:

Based on an inspiring true story about a ballroom dancing instructor who taught inner city kids. Like many movies about inner city schools, Take the Lead resorts too frequently to cliches, but overall this is an enjoyable, feel good film with a good performance by Antonio Banderas as the instructor, Pierre Dulaine, and some nice dance scenes, including a particularly hot tango with Lithuanian-Canadian dancer Katya Virshilas.

 

My rating:3 Stars (3 / 5)

Bring It On Movie Review

Review:

This movie belongs to the same class of high school tongue-in-cheek comic masterpieces as Mean Girls and Easy A. Though it doesn’t quite reach those heights of brilliance in dialogue and plot, it does come with the bonus of some truly fantastic cheerleading routines, and will give you new respect for cheerleading as a sport.

My rating:4 Stars (4 / 5)

Easy A Movie Review

Buy at Amazon

Review:

Another smart, witty teen movie in the tradition of Mean Girls, 10 Things I Hate About You, and Clueless, this one inspired by Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter. It’s one of our favorites, probably second only to Mean Girls in its genre.

My rating:4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

Review:

It doesn’t attain the heights of Mean Girls, but this is an unusually smart and highly entertaining teen movie, loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.
