The Movies that Made Us: part 1 Dirty Dancing

Pretty good. I was afraid this was going to be one of those 'forcing a cultural agenda down your throat' piece, but it wasn't. It was really mostly 'the making of Dirty Dancing' and a factual note of it's success, but very little about it's impact on culture... which is really good news. Of course the title, 'movies that made us' is odd considering, but I'm glad it's not self aggrandizing cultural punch.

Come on.
You know Dirty Dancing MADE you.


I watched an episode of the Rookie.
I mean...it's no Southland...but there's not too many cop dramas on that I'd watch these days, and it's an enjoyable mix.
It was...it was just really nice to see Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk share the screen again, even if only for one episode.

Watched a few of season 2 FINAL SPACE. Funny.

I had considered checking out Rookie. I always wondered what it would be like becoming a cop, and entering a field while older is interesting to. But sounds like you weren't to thrilled with it? If it had some accurate detail to it, it could be pretty good. But if it's mainly fluff from writers without a clue about the reality, I doubt I'd like it. Rec on where to see it?

Dirty Dancing certainly didn't make me. I think I saw a rental of it. Saw it again recently. Not as good as I remembered, but it's ok.

The Movies that Made Us: Ghostbusters

Another 'the making of', this time Ghostbusters. Well done and interesting. Again plenty of interesting behind the scene's info, origins of the script that Dan Aykroyd wrote (which he regards as the family business -- he and his parents were very into parapsychology research, and I knew it when I saw the film), and then re-wrote with Harold Ramis.

I'll certainly check out the other two films in the series. Always like 'making of the film' docs.
