This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is dance movies! They cannot be musicals. I almost did this post on the worst dance movies I've ever seen, since I've suffered through You Got Served, Honey, and Step up, but I decided to stick with things I like, so here are my favorites.
1) Save the Last Dance
You have no idea how many times I watched this movie as a teenager. Just writing about it now makes me want to watch it again.
2) Black Swan
I know I've used Black Swan on a past theme, but I have to use it here as well. I just can't skip it. It fits perfectly. This is a film I could watch over and over.
3) Billy Elliot
This is the movie that introduced me to Jamie Bell. He's excellent in it and it's very endearing. It did become a musical eventually, but since it didn't start as one I think it counts.
Bonus: Drop Dead Gorgeous - Not a dance movie, but I love Amber's tap dance scene.
Bring It On - Hey, they said "Cheerleaders are dancers who have gone retarded." That sort of counts, right?
