With the amount of musician biopics coming out you’d think I would try and learn a little bit more about the singers but I enjoy learning things about them for the first time during the movie. Which is what I’d consider the best part about these types of movies, learning about their crazy lives on the big screen.
On another note, this music biopic(along with Bohemian Rhapsody) succeeded where all of the others kind of dropped the ball. They succeeded because they created a good balance of switching the focus between the music and the singers’ lives. Other movies seemed to lean more one way or the other which always left me wanting more. The best part of I Wanna Dance was that I felt like I got the whole story, I was never left wondering what happened. Altogether it was a really good movie and I would give it an 8 out of 10.
