    Trust me, I’ve DNFed plenty of MM movies lol. And yes, I totally want to watch Swing Kids (1993) now.

    Now that you’ve mentioned it, I can totally see it

    Yeah, Jackson was probably sent to the US, dishonorably discharged, denied any benefits, and never tap danced again

    Omg this reminds me of the scene where the corporal slaps Pan Rae and she comes back at him with a flying drop kick. I somehow missed that on my first watch and on my second watch I rewound it a few times So satisfying.

    So...what do you think happened to Pan Rae's siblings and the guy's wife?

    Do you guys think Jackson eventually made it to Okinawa?

    I didn't notice his accent at all! Btw Cam the actor playing Ki Su is in a K-pop band and his stage name is D.O. As in...

    They should've added - don't talk about your future plans. Right before the Swing Kids go on stage, the guy's like, right after this dance number I'm going straight to see my wife... Oh you have a point. I lost it on my second watch. Are you talking about the guy in charge of the camp, the general?

    The premise was that Ki Su was blamed for the damage to the hall at "Bible Study" and his punishment was to go fix up the place. The other prisoners at the communist camp didn't know he was dancing there.

    I've been fixated on Hunky Dory, but I think I'm gonna switch to Let's Dance soon... My second favorite song from the movie was Free As A Bird. I held it together even when the group was shot (hope that's not a spoiler), but when they started playing that song over the credits and the group pics, I lost it.

    The POW camp was real, but the dancing was not. In the final scene, they made it a point to show that the film camera was shot so no footage survived lol.

    I rewatched it for MM and I didn't love it as much as the first time. Is it just me or are the transitions kind of abrupt between scenes? Like the Modern Love sequence - it's awesome! But by the end of that scene I couldn't remember why Ki Su was in the dance hall by himself and it was jarring that it ended with the girl doing a face plant. And they kind of recycled that from the Chinese guy's audition from the earlier scene - which was one of the highlights tbh. There were lots of entertaining scenes like that but overall the string of scenes didn't fit together sometimes. Some of the scenes gave me whiplash. One minute I'm chuckling at a silly slapstick joke and the next minute I'm horrified by the blood and violence. But still, there were some fun dance sequences and soundtrack was A+.

    Rubbybells checking in. The movie reviewing & driving cat.
  15. Spoiler alert: they're a tap dancing team, so even if nobody saw them coming, everyone heard them coming.
