Four critically acclaimed movies come out on DVD today, all of which are required viewing. The remainder... not so much. .
The cast of remake of '80s dance flick Fame was announced today, and there's clearly a divide -- by age, of course, but also, coincidentally enough, by fame.
Admittedly I should have been more skeptical about this remake from the get-go, but Debbie Allen's enthusiasm about it on So You Think You Can Dance coupled with my obsession with movies about dancing and or singing, caused me to be naively hopeful about it. That goodwill only lasted about a third of the way through the movie.
