There has indeed been a SHITLOAD of these movies coming in. But hey, I guess it's because much of the black youth do it all the time, and the movies are for those that do it or enjoy looking.

It can get repetitive though.

It can get repetitive. I mean lets go through these movies. Save The Last Dance (the first one) was good. I have the movie. Honey was enjoyable too. You Got Served-nobody watched it for the acting because we know all of them sucked. It was disappointing performance from Marques Houston and for me, his creditability as a actor went down-way down. Drumline, best Nick Cannon Movie thus far, that dance movie with Vanessa Williams that Raja pointed out was good...that came out in '96. Has it been that long already? I miss being a kid. I'll have to come back to this. I need to throughly think about this some more.

it was a cliche urban movie, "cultural shock" urban kids look down on tokin rich white person so she has to prove herself to the hood yada yada yada..... some male gets in criminal activity....dies or almost dies... the 2 ppl that you "LEAST" (sarcasm alert) expect fall in love... too predictable for my tastes

Drumline is probly the only movie i liked its more band than dance tho but whatever



soooo basically



-protaganist has to prove his/her/them self

-something bad happens to close friend/family.... usually senseless gang-related violence (Chris Brown died in stomp the yard LOL)

-the climatic showdown

-protaganist finds love



THE END ..... hold your applause its not worth it....

Indeed.

And it also seems like the more of these movies that come out, the more they start to suck.

lmao.. I think the movies all started when Breakin' came out. here's a lil list:

Breakin'
Breakin' 2
You Got Served
Drumline
Rize (although that shit was real grimey and street shit, no games)
Step Up
Stomp the Yard
Step Up 2
How She Move

And have you noticed that in most of those movies, it involves two rivals and a contest? And in that contest, there's a tie between the two rivals? AND at the same time, the main character is trying to get a girl, who he's having some problems with? And the two crews gotta battle it out? And the main character's crew always wins in the end? :o
*Bold movies have those EXACT endings (to my knowledge)

My favorite style is Poppin' (specifically liquid poppin), hands down. But Breakin' is definitely sick and I wish I could do either of them =P.

Least favorite..all those "Crank Dat (_____________)" dances. They're funny, and easy to learn, but they get played out after you see like more than 2 different videos of someone doing the exact same shit haha

I like looking at Asian hip hop dancers. It's big here, but watching ppl overseas in other asian countries makes me think, "WOW! I didn't think ppl in other countries like hip hop like that."

Too much of the running man, and I would catch a headache.

That dance was no joke.

Since you like Asian Hip-Hop dancers, you should check out these Korean bboys, they're pretty sick.

While on the topic of Asian Hip-Hop dancers, when I was in Japan last winter I was taking the train back to my hotel at like 3.a.m. and I was walking around the little underground network they have in the metro stations. Suddenly I stumbled into this really wide open area and I looked around. There were like no less than 10 different dance crews in there practicing. I stopped for like 20 minutes to take videos and pictures of some of the bboys I saw. I saw this Japanese girl do headspin with like 20+ rotations, it was sick.
