Fame 2009 was good but wasn’t outright amazing. I’ve not actually seen the original, but I would’ve expected a lot more. I also expected them to dance to Fame the song (thought that woulda been obvious, no?) – terribly disappointed that they didn’t! Why!? I LOVED the carnival scene which opened with Santigold’s ‘You’ll Find a Way’, i thought that was amazing. Superb choreography and perfect choice of song. The Sam Sparro ‘Black & Gold’ dance is also a good one. They had many unknown actors and I feel the ones that we may be seeing more of are Kay Panabaker, Walter Perez and Collins Pennie. This May 16th marks the 30th anniversary since the original Fame movie was released, making them significantly responsible for the whole 80s pop dance culture. Heck, we should all make it a point to go watch Irene Cara in action.
