Review: Climax

An introductory scene of Gaspar Noé’s Climax gives viewers some hints of what to expect. Interviews with the film’s character play on a CRT TV, where they speak of the artistic power of dance and what it means to their li...


Sony Screen Gems to make a Just Dance movie

I don't think it needed mentioning, but video game film adaptations are usually never good. The hurdle that video game movies always run into is that they try to adapt several dozen hours of gameplay and narrative into a two-hour time frame...


Schlock Chuggers: The FP

[Schlock Chuggers is an ode celebrating the wacky, strange, obscene, and vulgar in which members of Flixist and Destructoid drink heavily, watch trashy movies, and talk about it. Any suggestions? Feel free to drop them in the comments!] Who...

Cuban Fury Trailer photo

First trailer for Cuban Fury starring Nick Frost

Cuban Fury may not have a domestic release date yet (only releasing in the UK for now), but that doesn't make me want to see it any less. Nick Frost stars as a young salsa dance project who's trying to get back in the groove in order to ge...


See Battle of the Year early and free

Dance movies are frickin' awesome when they work (and awful when they don't). What makes them awesome? The dancing... that's why it's  a dance movie. Battle of the Year is the next entrant into the genre and it looks like it has d...

Review: Step Up Revolution

There's a certain quality to the Step Up series. They aren't good movies, but thanks to competent directing and a host of amazing dance sequences they're fun to watch for the most part. They're the kind of films where you ignore the plot an...


Trailer: Battle of the Year

Take a look as this fine trailer for the new dance flick Battle of the Year and make sure to soak it all in. It’s got everything you want from a cinematic masterpiece. It has the stellar acting talents of Chris Brown and that one kid...


First three minutes of Step Up Revolution are ridiculous

I'm just going to come out of the closet now. I'm a fan of the Step Up series. They're like bad kung-fu movies where you watch simply for the fight scenes. Over the many iterations of the films the numbers have gotten zanier and zanier, cu...


Trailer: Magic Mike

When I first heard about Magic Mike, I thought it'd either be about the sordid lifestyle of magicians, the obsession filipinos have with home karaoke systems or a (long awaited) sequel to Like Mike. Instead of those things, I get a movie a...


Trailer: Step Up Revolution

Step Up Revolution is the fourth entry in the Step Up dance-movie series. In this one, Emily is a young girl who leaves her privileged life and moves to Miami to become a professional dancer. There she meets Sean, "a young man who leads a ...


Flix for Short: Girl Walk // All Day

Girl Talk's 2010 album All Day is easily his most danceable record of mash-ups. Rather than stopping a groove for a sudden shift in tone, the songs have a certain cohesion from sample to sample, which means it functions as a solid 71-minut...


Watch NPH swap genders in this musical storyboard!

I really liked A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas, and one of the best scenes in it is Neil Patrick Harris' musical number. There's something about the raunchiness of Harold and Kumar as well as the combined cheesiness of musicals, Chris...


Dirty Dancing reboot now has a writer

Sometimes you hear about these bottom-of-the-barrel reboots and figure they won't actually happen. There are times these projects are mercifully abandoned and we can breathe a sigh of relief. This is not the case with the Dirty Dancing rebo...

OK... I can do this... must muster up ability to pretend to care. Deep breathe. All right here we go. Here's some news that is sure to excite you, boys and girls. Kenny Ortega is going to be directing the Dirty Dancing remake. It's goi...


Trailer: Footloose

This remake of the 1980s Kevin Bacon masterpiece Footloose can go one of two ways. It will either be a Step Up 3D type of film where you can put up with the horrific acting and story because the dancing is amazing or it will be a teen angs...
