Saturday Night Fever Reviews
The movie is harsh. The feeling it portrays is imposing, It's angst is strangely relatable. The themes are not subtle but neither was the era.
The movie kills!
-Bee Gees is life.
-A colorful fuckin' film.
-You don't mess with Tony's hair. The look Travolta pulls is amazing.
-So is all the dance moves.
-Some parallels between this and Purple Rain. Not a bad thing.
-The 2001 Odyssey is quite the tranquil place for Tony.
- Sex, drugs, and disco. The 70s disco scene may have been my kind of party.??
-John Travolta isn't Al Pacino, but he's sure unique in his own way. A movie very enveloped in its own time, Saturday Night Fever is quintessential dance film. Fuck off Step Up!
Tony Manero lives with his parents in New York and works days at a department store and spends his nights perfecting his dancing. He is a big time club dancer at night and is slowly doing nothing with his life. His friends lives start falling apart around him and he may start wondering what he's doing with himself...
"She didn't cum yet?"
"Since when do you care?"
John Badham, director of Drop Zone, Stakeout, Short Circuit, Point of No Return, Bird on a Wire, and episodes from the television series Heroes, Arrow, and Supernatural, delivers Saturday Night Fever. The storyline for this picture is excellent and a very unique coming of age film. The acting is perfect and the cast includes John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney, Barry Miller, Paul Pape, and Sam Coppola.
"Some guys don't know a lousy fuck when they see one. Maybe the thought you were dead."
I came across this on Netflix not too long ago and I added it to the wish list. This is a great movie of the disco age and the soundtrack was awesome. Overall, this is a worthwhile movie and borderline worth adding to your DVD collection.
