Chariots of Fire

One of the most inspirational theme songs I have ever heard, along with Beethoven's Symphony #9 (Ode to Joy),

After the death of his younger brother, a troubled 19-year-old street dancer from Los Angeles is able to bypass juvenile hall by enrolling in the historically black, Truth University in Atlanta, Georgia.

剧情简介

  街头少年DJ来自洛杉矶,是乔治亚洲亚特兰大一所大学新入学的学生。在新环境里感到非常不适应的他,自从加入了一个街舞爱好者同盟会之后,生活开始有了翻天覆地的变化。他的出众舞技在这里得到施展,同盟的人在景仰之余,都期待他能帮助同盟会夺取大家垂涎已久的全国街舞大赛冠军。然而他们不知道的事,纵然有出神入化的舞技,在成为同盟会最有竞争力的主心骨之前,DJ必须面对的是如何抛开残酷的往事带给他的种种阴影。在身边好兄弟和所爱女孩的支持下,DJ是否能够重新站起身来,正视前方的道路,在这条自己曾经深深热爱的街舞道路上勇往直前呢?  

导演介绍

  随着街舞在全球的风靡,街舞电影已经成为了一个较为独立的电影种类。2004年的街舞主题电影《热力四射》(《You Got Served》)一出,成为了街舞电影的开山制作。而本片与当年的《热力四射》相比,演员阵容更为强大,同时本片有意将街舞提升到一个全新的高度,使街舞从黑人们在街区自娱自乐、自我消遣的娱乐方式升级为一个拥有锻炼身体练心智的体育竞技项目。本片所选择的插入点有别于以往街舞电影的主线,虽然也没有脱离竞争比赛这一万变不离其宗的矛盾表现方式,但在过程设计中摆脱了以往电影中的仅以表现比赛场面为主的形式,同时对于情节的强化也让影片多了些励志的味道。另外,本片的舞蹈动作设计精致洒脱,很多高难度的街舞动作让人叹为观止,绝对值得广大街舞爱好者大力追捧,超越当年经典的士气很足。

主演介绍

  以街舞为主题的影片,导演似乎已经不重要,拒请多么曲折也无人关注,最紧要的就是能否请到重量级的街舞高手展现实实在在的街舞。名演员哥伦布·肖特多年以前是当时尚属清纯系列的小甜甜布兰妮的绯闻男友,这个帅气的黑人小伙是名娱乐全能选手,电视、电影、舞蹈样样都能。而梅根·古德的舞技也绝不逊色。除了男女主演都是大伙儿熟知的街舞高手外。莱约也是片中不得不提的演员。这名曾经身居幕后,为众多顶尖歌手打造流行金曲的王牌制作人,如今也来到了一线发行了自己的专辑,在几个月里就已经赢得了R&B新生代偶像的称誉。这次是他初登影坛,虽然仅仅是个配角,但也是绝对被发行商拿来作为卖点的演员。

追求梦想与美妙乐舞的欣赏--电影《中央舞台》

            (文/张馨月)

    他们是一群朝气蓬勃,青春洋溢,才华横溢的年轻舞蹈学生,虽然在所学专业中名列前茅,并经常获得老师疼爱,同学请教的殊荣,也从报考所学专业最高级的学院---美国芭蕾舞学院中的众多全国报名者中脱颖而出,被选为该学院的学生,但如果他们想要好的前程,想找到一份好的工作,他们还必须在学院学习的这一年里加倍努力,目标是被选上,能参加学院举办的年终比赛,并且是在比赛后,才知道自己是否从比赛的人当中被录取标准异常严格的专业舞蹈公司录取,公司总监乔纳森告诉他们,他只从他们这12个人当中录取三男三女,没被录取的只能打道回府,离开学院。乔纳森和舞蹈团中的最佳表演者库柏在对编舞方面意见不和,最后决定他们各自选取队员在比赛中一决高低。

电影《中央舞台》《Center Stage》描述了这群为了实现自己在竞争激烈的专业舞蹈界出人头地、成为明星的希望和梦想而互助友爱、刻苦学习和奋斗的过程。虽然也同样经历着年轻人常有的喜悦和伤悲、爱情和冲突,但这些奋发向上的年轻舞蹈家们却为自己的梦想而不懈努力着。

竞争是激烈的,也是惨忍的,每个人都很努力,不惜牺牲常人生活中的乐趣,进行严格的受训,但努力的过程带给每个人的是不同的结果。其中三个女孩子的经历特别吸引人,她们是甜美的朱迪,优秀的莫瑞安,聪明尖刻的黑人女孩爱娃。

当十年以来一直都梦想当美国芭蕾舞团首席最佳的女主角并一直努力的朱迪被总监告知她脚不够有力,技巧欠缺,虽然长相漂亮,但体形不佳,不适合跳芭蕾舞时,她伤心难过极了,对于要继续走的方向也有了动摇。

莫瑞安是学院中最优秀的学生,经常被老师称赞并在课上作示范,似乎她被入选只是个时间问题,但当被男朋友质问为了跳芭蕾,为了保持身材苗条,在每次跟大家一起出去吃完东西就上洗手间呕吐出来,这样折磨自己的身体跟实现自己的梦想有什么联系时;还有从九岁以来就认真培养她的母亲在跟她谈话时,讲的只是要她如何多加练习,如何跟搭挡以便获得成功,却连她想讲一个笑话的时间都不让她拥有时;想到自己把所有时间都花在跳舞上,没交几个好朋友,经常为了表现更好而精神紧张失眠时,她觉得自己渐渐力不从心了。

聪明尖刻的黑人女孩爱娃很有天斌,但因为自己的这种个性总不被老师和总监所喜爱,虽然被列入比赛名单,但被排在队伍的最后面,她最后下定决心在比赛的那场舞中,不为任何目的而跳,而只为自己喜欢跳舞的这份心来跳自己人生中的最后一次舞,然后离开舞蹈学院。

朱迪的情况就好比现实中,我们在为自己喜欢做的某件事情而努力奋斗时,有人在你旁边对你说你这不好,那不好,不适合也不会把事情做成功的。但请记住这句话:不论什么东西,只要你爱它够深,它就会倾吐它的秘密。这样你也就可从中获得走向成功彼岸的秘诀了。所以当我们走在自己的梦想之路上时,不要轻易地就被别人对你的不好的谈论就打退堂鼓,要坚持自己心中的梦想!

做成一件事是需要技巧的,但做好一件事则是要用心去做的。

莫瑞安则其实是为了母亲的梦想而去跳舞,所以她尽管表现优秀,但她是不快乐的,就像后来她跟母亲说的:“你没有一双跳舞的脚,而我却没有一颗跳舞的心。”

就像我们努力去做一件擅长但不喜欢的工作,也许你能把它做成,但因为你不喜欢,所以你会越做越感到压抑,越来越不快乐,我们一个人的一生如此短暂,为什么在做事情时,不事先问问自己,是否是真正自己喜欢的,是否是自己真正的梦想,而不是父母或爱你的长辈强加给予你的“梦想”。

因为只有在做你自己喜欢的事情时,你才会有快乐,而快乐地去做一件事时,就不会感到压抑,更多灵感就会爆发出来,事情也就会越做越顺手,成功也就更易获得,一个人的生命是有限的,不要把时间浪费在你不喜欢的事物上。

去做自己喜欢做的事,而不是做自己擅长的事!

爱娃对跳舞的执着态度和勤奋练习终于感动女指导老师,老师在她练习参加比赛的某些舞蹈动作给了她一句提示:释放你的心灵,动作就会自然而然出来了!于是她遵照老师的教导,动作也越来越完美。

在你做任何一件事情,如果你能放飞自己的心灵,暂时放下困扰你内心的负荷,那么你就会轻装上阵,对事物就会有更加良好的反映,选择的正确率也将会大大提高,这样离成功也就不远了。

那么最后这三个女孩子的命运到底怎么样呢?她们又对影响自己未来生活的比赛是如何对待和选择的呢?

本片的结局是朱迪加入库柏的表演队,带领队员给观众们一起演绎了一场美妙绝伦现代芭蕾舞,赢得了大家的赞益,并在比赛后决定加入库柏新成立的舞蹈公司,从表演首席开始做起,实现了自己的梦想;莫瑞安放弃了作乔纳森表演一组的领衔舞者,转入大学学习;爱娃在最后关头,顶替莫瑞安当领舞,在表演中她完全释放自己的心灵,加上她平时的刻苦努力,所以整场表演让她达到了自己舞蹈表演的巅峰,征服了观众们的心,最后被乔纳森的舞团录取。大家都有所收获,并且还找到了自己爱的归宿!

飞扬的青春、优美的舞姿,还有什么比身着紧身服跳芭蕾舞的年轻人更能吸引人们的目光的呢?舞蹈的配乐包括美国当红的小红辣椒、曼迪-摩尔以及迈克尔-杰克逊的音乐,里面的插曲和片尾曲,非常好听,有抒情、R&B、金属、快歌。本片颇吸引人的另一个方面就是导演起用真正的舞蹈演员(包括奥林匹克冰上芭蕾金牌得主伊莉娅·库利克)出演片中的大部分舞蹈镜头。因此,本片是舞迷和乐迷都不能错过的好片。就让我们带着一颗欣赏的心去观看影片中的精彩表演,并从中收获快乐,放松的心情。

Great thread, people. I love movies. I'm going to try out some of your favourites!

Here are some movies that I liked, both old and new, in alphabetical order. Will post more when I can remember them! I noticed that some of you share my tastes too :-)

I've provided some brief description for each without giving away too much of the story.  


I'll start with animation (cartoon) movies:


Antz
A rather old but nice movie about ants, with some real interesting characters.


A Bug's Life
Another nice story revolving around ants. Nice colourful scenes and images.


Cars
A great animation movie from Pixar. About cars. A would-be champion race car misses the road and ends
up on a path that leads him, through twists and turns, to discover those things that really matter in "life".


The Cat in the Hat
Two kids have a memorable and personality-changing adventure with a cat from a fantasy world. The movie is based on one of the stories by Dr Seuss who is renowned for his numerous literary works for children. Partly animation, partly real (there's another, completely animated, old version of this movie, which is nowhere as good).


Finding Nemo
A lovely story about fish. Little Nemo gets captured by a diver. His dad Marlin sets off on the long journey to find him. And for Marlin, it's not just about finding Nemo, but finding himself too. One of my all-time favourite animation movies. Great cartoons and superb animation from Pixar studios.  The details are amazing.


Hoodwinked
You'll need to understand western culture well and be rather good at English to fully appreciate this modernised version of a fairy tale. The story line is quite lame (someone stealing recipes and putting restaurants out of business!). I thought the ending wasn't very clever, and I never did like that shifty-eyed and nosy rabbit anyway. But otherwise the movie is full of entertaining episodes.


Ice Age
A superb story about three mismatched creatures in the ice age that just happen to come together. As they journey together to return a lost human baby to its family, they begin to also see each other differently.
Part 2 is just so-so, nothing great. It has a few funny scenes in between to provide some relief.


The Incredibles
An animation movie around an "Incredible" family with special powers, with lots of brilliant action, which gets more enjoyable as it progresses and the characters start coming into their own.


The Lion King
Another nice animation movie around a pride of lions on the plains of Africa, with some very interesting characters thrown in. Follow the dialogues to enjoy it more. It's got a few songs too. "Hakuna Matata" is good fun, but the one sung by old Scar (forgot the name) drags a bit. Still, a movie worth having in your collection.


Over the Hedge
A group of assorted creatures live together happily in the forest. A human settlement springs up next door to disrupt their lives. A raccoon has his own private problems to spice up the story.  And lots of drama in between. Good entertainment value.


Ratatouille
Another very nice animation movie that I saw very recently. A rat with culinary inclinations wants to be a cook. Again, lots of details. You'll know what Ratatouille stands for near the end of the movie. Very well produced, and thoroughly entertaining. You'll never think of rats in the same way again!


Shrek, Part 1 and Part 2 (not Part 3)
Shrek is an ogre--a kind of evil creature that used to appear in old fairy tales. But while Shrek is anything but evil, he is misunderstood and abhorred because of his appearance. He is joined by another social outcast, a donkey that talks, and unwittingly lands up in adventures that help reveal his real nature.
To really enjoy Shrek you need to be familiar with other old cartoon characters from fairy tales (pinocchio, three blind mice, the three little pigs, etc). Otherwise you'll miss out on a lot. Simple story lines in both these movies, but the characters more than make up for it.
I thought Part 3 of Shrek was rather boring and insipid in comparison. They've changed Shrek's appearance so much that he's no longer an ogre but just a large green man. And, unconvincing story line. Not worth watching.


The Simpsons movie
Vintage Simpsons. To really enjoy this movie, you must be familiar with the TV series "The Simpsons" and understand the characters. And if you are, I don't need to tell you about it anyway :-)


Toy Story - Part 1 and 2
Great stuff again from Pixar. About a set of toys belonging to a young boy, and their adventures and mishaps caused by their very human feelings and vulnerabilities.
