Beauty and the Beast. Saw this with my youngest kid who was watching it for the first time. It's hard to believe it's over 20 years old. But for me it's timeless, and still my favorite Disney animated film ever.
Rock of Ages. Wife and I saw the Vegas version of the stage musical a few weekends ago and have been itching to check out the film since then. It doesn't quite capture the energy of seeing it live, the stage show we saw is basically a rock concert and you can't get that on film. That said, once I got past the first 30 minutes or so, the film picks up, and though it's not a great film I enjoyed it. I grew up listening to all of these songs so there's a nostalgia factor here as well. And depending on your view of Tom Cruise, you're either gonna love his performance or hate it (I fall with the former).
Breakin'. Is it me, or does 80's rock and new wave get more current attention than 80's R&B and rap? Anyway, it was fun watching this again. We all went to see this in the theaters when we were kids. We didn't care it wasn't very good, we just wanted to see popping and locking and we weren't disappointed.
Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. Iím almost embarrassed to admit I sat through this and liked it. At least for the 1st one I have nostalgic attachment so I have an excuse for liking it, this one Iíve never seen before and itís more painfully shameless and dated than the first. Yet, itís a more joyous and goofy affair, clearly modeled more after old-school movie musicals.
Mr. Nice Guy. Well, it's not one of his best, but I still like it for the construction site fight. That scene with the table saw -- sometimes he's just friggin crazy.
