While rap and Hip-hop are mainstream, they embrace the counterculture. This just seems like a cheap latch onto the mindset of many people at the time.
~Yes, we get the smybolism, Hammer. Enough with the church stuff and you in a military uniform.
~The pimp fur coat and the American headband just doesn’t seem to fit.
~Watching a bunch of stiff Congress people attempting to dance is terrible. Stick to making terrible laws, Congress. And, let washed up hip-hop rappers do the dancing.
~The music sounds like it came out of the early 90s instead of 2001.

Roger Rabbit 2 test footage finally revealed? (1998)
Over at Big Fan Boy, they have video embedded into the story that is supposed to be screen test footage of the abandoned Roger Rabbit 2 project. In that project, they wanted to update Roger Rabbit with CGI models that interacted with real people instead of regular animated models. From what I read, the project was fairly into pre-production before everyone lost interest in it.
From what I can gather, the test footage is legit. Now, I still looking for story boards to Roger Rabbit 2 as well. I really liked what I saw in the video, and I am impressed with how well it looks for something out of the 90s.
I listed this web site before that will give you further insight into the history behind the failed attempt at a Roger Rabbit sequel. (http://www.filmbuffonline.com/Features/RogerRabbitII.2.htm )
Side note: There is supposedly more footage than the few seconds we have here. From Film Buff Online, (( The test scene consisted of two animated weasels bursting into the office of a Hollywood agent to “persuade” him to audition their friend Roger. Roger then bursts into the room and proceeds to cause the kind of havoc only a `toon like he can. The test was designed to see if traditional animation and computer-generated images could be successfully combined with live action footage of the agent and his office. Roger and the weasels were realized through traditional animation while the weasels’ Tommy guns and a table that Roger breaks were rendered through CGI. Unfortunately, the result was not as successful as hoped for, so another test was ordered. This time both characters and props were animated with a computer and produced a much better result. ))

Digital Underground (The Way We Swing and other songs)
DU has always been one of my favorite hip-hop groups ever. I think they have the 70s vibe that Outkast had in their later albums.
The Way We Swing.
This is the remix that came out after the first version. This version was released on their EP Album “This is an EP Release”. This version is much faster than the other first version. Plus, there aren’t any of MC Blowfish vocals in the remix either.
Make sure to listen to live version too.
Arguin’ on the Funk
Tie the Knot
Tie the knot, tip-tip-tip tie the knot. I love this one too. They had a version of this song for that movie Nothing But Trouble.

Feuds between Hollywood folks
Head over to premiere.com their list of 10 feuds from Hollywood. I wanted to mention a few of them and give my three cents.
Megan Fox vs. Michael Bay: I’ve covered this one a lot on my blog, but I still think Fox’s attack on Bay was a PR move to take away the heat the critics were giving her on her performance in TF2. She was getting the brunt of the blame.
Paul Schrader vs. Steven Spielberg: I knew nothing about this one. I remember reading and watching a lot of behind the scenes stuff about Close Encounters, but this kind of few under the radar for me. This was probably covered in the making of on the DVD, but I missed it.
Armond White vs. Noah Baumbach: I remember this one and I got a kick out of Armond getting banned from screenings from Noah’s films. If you don’t know, I really hate Mr. White a lot. If White suggested the demise of Noah in one review, Noah has every right to ban his ass.
Orson Welles vs. Peter Sellers: Yes, this one was legendary. Things got so bad on the old comedy movie Casino Royale set between these two that they refused to film together. Back then, Hollywood feuds were really big.

I can say this for Dance Flick, it is better than all those Jason Friedberg
Aaron Seltzer spoof movies. However, that’s not saying much. To my surprise, Dance Flick has a few jokes going for it, but rest of the movie is a little too disjointed for its own good.
Dance Flick makes fun of all those stupid dance/urban movies where the white guy/girl comes into the urban environment and learns hip-hop dancing. It should be noted that the movie doesn’t really stray that far from the movies it’s trying to spoof. There is an exception. There is an awkward Twilight joke that seems completely out of place and makes no sense even in a spoof movie.
Directed by Damien Dante Wayans, first time movie director, the actual directing feels more than a little uneven. There were times when I felt Damien was trying to emulate his brother’s (Keenen Ivory Wayans) directing style, but not as well. Sometimes, it just comes across as bland.
Speaking of bland, Damon Wayans Jr. is a bland as they get. I’m surprised he didn’t just phase into the background scenery at certain points. I know that the Wayans like keeping it in the family, but at least give the kid some acting lessons.
Shoshana Bush, the lead white girl moving into the city, is better than her co-star. Shoshana is very cute and does kind of have a grasp on this acting thing, but her character is under-written. I can see that they were going for another Anna Faris with her, but they just didn’t get it right.
The writing doesn’t stand up any better either, because they’re trying too hard to spoof the entire dance movie craze, and I mean the entire range of movies in that genre. Nothing from that genre is overlooked, but it becomes such a jumbled mess that it was hard for me to tell what the hell was going on. Yes, I got a little confused by a damn Wayans movie. I’m embarrassed.
In the end, I found myself laughing at a few bits, but not much else. That is a shame because I’m still a fan of Scary Movie, and most of the cast from that movie came back for Dance Flick. Dance Flick isn’t Friedberg and Seltzer bad, but the Wayans haven’t reached their Scary Movie potential.
Uh, let’s keep this between us. Yeesh
That’s just sickening on different levels.
