Yard Stomped again

10.22.2009

If it makes money, it gets a sequel. Case in point being STOMP THE YARD, which earned $74 million worldwide, which is apparently enough to warrant another installment, STOMP THE YARD 2: HOMECOMING. Colombus Short is set to reprise his role as uber-stomper DJ, and Rob Hardy is attached to direct. Shooting is set to start next month in Atlanta.

Look, I can appreciate a good dance/muisc movie as much as the next white guy who totally wishes he could dance, but STOMP THE YARD just wasn’t particularly good, and stomping isn’t a particularly cool dance form, if you ask me. I much prefer the craziness of STEP UP 2 THE STREETS or hell, even DRUMLINE has some pretty sick numbers. STOMP just left me bored.

But never fear, I still have STEP UP 3D to look forward to, and I already have my “yeah, she absolutely dragged me to it” cover story all lined up for that one.

Extra Tidbit: "America's Best Dance Crew" is the only time I've watched MTV in the last five years.

So Sue Me...

I make fun of shows like America's Best Dance Crew and movies like Step Up. However, when I actually catch these movies on pay tv, some of them aren't bad. Stomp the Yard was actually the most shockingly good one of the bunch. Sure, the characters aren't much to care for, but the silliness of the plot and "stomping" kept me interested all the way through. Drumline was pretty good as well. Step Up 2 was watchable because of Briana Evigan and that admittedly cool dance in the last act.

I for one liked STOMP THE YARD, does it warrant a sequel..no not really. Then again I felt the same way about STEP UP, but I changed my tune when that little cutie BRIANA EVIGAN showed up on screen. And personally I'm still waiting on the DRUMLINE sequel, everytime that movie is on TNT my channel flipping just stops, the music in that movie is awesome. But here's to hoping that STEP UP 3D is a movie about strippers!
