even maria carey did a movie


bad movies happen all the time, why not make one about breakdancing wars...

actually i wouldent mind seeing it if the cheorography (sp?) is good, ive been a fan of breaking for years, although im not very good

unfortunately i fear its a bunch of pieced together clips and editing and special effects used to do impossible things...but who knows

It's gay. Dance moves that defy the laws of gravity and lameness all rolled up into one homophobes nightmare. This movie has broke in to a new frontier of lame. This movie will probably suck shrimp $hit which will probably float around for a few minutes and get eaten by another shrimp preferably the same shrimp who $hit it out in the first place.

Great find! Wow!

No, it's not that I have anything against dancing. I love it. But the moive is gay. Old school movies like Breakin' and Krush Groove had good references to dancing. I even stomached "Save the last dance", but this...this is....

No realy, did you see the clip of the guy balancing on his head while acheiving foward motion. That is...

I haven't seen a commercial for it yet, though Estevan did show me the webpage... I'm a bit curious about the film, if anything, I hope it has the energy and direction to bring it thru and make an entertaining film.

I thought the concept of Drumline was kind of stupid, but call me a fool, the energy was there to keep the film interesting and fun, and certainly entertaining with the music. I hope the same goes for this film.



Break dancing wars?!



It's called battling and its fun. I just turned 22 and have been in and out of the scene since I was 13. I've had like 3 battles when I was in middle school and beat them all. It's all in good sport though, just lots of dissing and making fun, hopefully the film portrays it honestly.

A decent movie about breaking and hiphop to check out is Beat Street. Theres an awesome 5 min battle in the Roxy that is worth the price of rental (if you can even find it), check it out.

Yeah (in an agreeing tone)

But the special effects are so lame. I mean lame burgers. I mean lame grease. Lame-laden, lame-o-rama, lame coat, blame it on the lame.

The thing is, it doesnt look decent...
My take from the commercials:
Its a rival dance gang war movie where the main bad guy looks suspiciously like the lead singer for Sum 41 (an evil white guy in a breakdancing movie??), the moves look like they came out of the matrix (I've seen real breakdancing, this looks too phony- see the above referenced headslide) and the plot looks about as involved as a sprite commercial. I could be wrong, but I'm not shelling out 8 bucks in the theater to find out.

Everything is not hip-hop. And don't go see this movie because of it's ties to hip-hop...don't go see it because it is going to be trash and your not into dance.

We both know that the only way you can do a slide like that is with alot of grease on the ground and your head and....you know what. It is just f-ing improbable.

You can do alot more with the 7-10 dollars you will spend on this crappy movie. Unless you are 15yrs old. Then you really kind of have to go. It compells you. You are exactly what they had in mind when they laced the trailers with subliminal messages saying, " Watch meeeee....thennnnn.....try the head slide your self....on concrete and send to Real TV". See everything is a conspiracy. RealTV RULES THE WORLD....

It's possible, looks like you've never seen any real breaking. Come to SoCal, goto 3rd street in Santa Monica, every once and a while there are some performers that come out (I think they're either Air Force or part of Rock Steady crew).

I had friends do this back in the day, if they're on concrete, they used helmets of course, if on gym floor or similar, either a helmet or some kind of soft pad. Hell, I used to be able to do it on my elbows with a soft pad, I can still a 90 as well (spin on one hand in handstand position).

I can't, because I cannot do it.

Have you seen how people combo head spins, to 90's, to headspins, to windmills, to flares, to windmills, to halo, to airflare, to windmill, back into headspins?

Yes. Sounds impossible but it's not.

Search for breaking videos on Kazaa or something, there should be stuff up on there. Also, check out some capoeira and kung fu demos if you can, those are some ballsy impossible things they do.

Ok, I'm going to date myself here http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I did my first windmill, centipede, tick, etc in 1983. My high school actually had a team. Break dancing was an outlet for inner-city kids to settle indifferences in a non-violent manner. Hollywood has once again looted the temple by making inexcusibly bad references to street dancing (read movies). I'm no expert, but I consider myself a pioneer in my day. The body's natural tendency to become less flexible and fast-healing with age has given me reason to pursue "other" activities. Actually, I was over break-dancing by 1985 and actively participating in the Chicago House sub-culture.
Nonetheless, one must realize that these time-passers came before X-boxes, PCs, internet forums, and Playstations. This was a way for us to pass time in my day. At any rate, if it curtails violence and gets our kids off their arses with exercise, then I'm all for it. I wouldn't pay money to see the movie, but that's just me. By the way, the head slide is probably real. Today's dancer has become pretty awesome to watch thanks in part to ground work laid over 20 years ago.

Dude I've seen all that that is mastering centrifical force. Me and girlfriend used to practice on her living room floor. But never have I seen that head slide. He is defying laws of gravity. Maaybe it can me done but they probably exaggerated a lil. There was soom dude on 30 seconds of fame that was the illest break dancer I ever seen.

DeanG35c6
01-29-2004, 03:28 PM
If you asked me 20 years ago to demonstrate that move, I would've tried. The hard part is gaining forward motion while simultaneously doing a head stand. It looks like a hard and painful move and there probably aren't many that could pull it off. As a matter of fact, I saw a similar move while watching the NFL. It can be done, but the sad part is that 20 years from now noone's going to remember that dude and he'll be somewhere suffering from constant neck pain and migranes. To perfect a move like that, he had to have put many, many hours into practice and since I haven't seen much protective gear for break dancers, he might be suffering now.

Fights Break Out At Tower City Movie
12 People Detained By Police

UPDATED: 10:00 AM EST February 1, 2004

CLEVELAND -- A night at the movies turned into a melee in downtown Cleveland Saturday night.

Police needed extra help to help keep the peace on Public Square after several fights broke out among teens at about 7:40 p.m., NewsChannel5 reported.

Twelve people involved in the melee were detained by police. About 700 young people were watching the movie "You Got Served" at Tower City Cinema when two fights broke out.

However, police were not sure what prompted the fighting.

The box office was forced to close about 9 p.m.

Officers said this was not the first time they've been called to Public Square at the end of a movie.

Things calmed down after many of the teens involved left the Public Square area.

That's the whole story but I'll put the link in anyhow...
