The Flop House: Episode #29 – Step Up 2: The Streets

After a holiday break, we ease into 2009 with the dance film Step Up 2: The Streets, about a girl who’s a maniac, maniac on the floor. Will she dance like she’s never danced before? Almost certainly. Meanwhile Stuart explains the role of texting in film titles nowadays, Elliott runs the gamut of comedy sound effects, and Dan issues a challenge to America’s tweens.

    The Archie TMNT wasn’t bad. They tried to strike a middle ground between the harmless cartoon and the weird time-and-space-hopping fantastical nature of the Eastman and Laird comics.

    At the end of one story arc Bebop and Rocksteady were put on a rehabilitation program by a cosmic warrior goddess where they spent time running around buck naked on a planet of their fellow animals.

    Then at the start of the next arc, Krang gives them a lift back to Earth, where they celebrate by stealing a bunch of guns and casually walking around blasting things, still naked but for their little loincloths.

    Their day out ends with going to a zoo and blasting apart a caged tiger at point blank range – all the while loftily pontificating about getting back in touch with their animal heritage.

    Fun, crazy stuff that would’ve raised a few eyebrows on Saturday morning…
