Footloose Remake Movie Review

The remake of the 1984 classic Footloose was worth seeing. With having seen the original movie, seeing the remake of Footloose was interesting.

Considering that there is a 26 year difference between the two, that’s a good time difference.  I know that there are people who have seen the classic probable can’t, as Jake Hertwig told me at the movie theater while I was on a potty and concessions break, “Can’t Give up the Bacon.”  Yet, I didn’t feel like I gave up on the Bacon, but rather I got to try the same dish prepared with different ingredients.

Kenny Warmold was able to provide his background of dancing to the part of Ren.  Julianne Hough was able to spice up the part of Ariel a bit more.

But what made the movie better and equals to the original wasn’t the actors; but rather the music.  The theme song of the movie still played, both at the start and at the end of movie with the same-if not very similar-dance number.  Yet, my personal favorite dance scene was at the club/bar to the country like number:

I would say that this remake, all though not what every Footloose fan may like; it’s still a fun watch.  Mainly since the movie did stay try to the original while making a name for itself and we can’t completely compare the two since there is a near three decade difference between taste in dance, music, and film.
