Step Up

January 22, 2011 by Post Team 

Step Up, It’s an easy film to summarize. He is one, big long clip. The end. If you do not see some “sick” and “totally sweet” dance routines, you can skip the next movie on your list.

“Step” Up””The series began in 2006 with an original film that is like” honey “at the time. The film is based on proven concepts but there was chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. “Step Up”2: The Streets” fell down, and we’ll stay away from that. Unfortunately, “Step Up”3″ not just better.

The film does not have an original plot idea. I guess director Jon Chu gave in and just tried to create the best dance moves ever seen. The plot uses a predictable routine spy inside, a love story between the son who is just because you have the same battle and the principle of dance we’ve seen time and time again in films pom Cheerleader and Dance.

In ‘Step’ Up”3, “Luke heads an institution that houses the stars of dance that have nowhere to go. They form a dance troupe that competes with local dance teams, usually in the park. But building now, Luke is left to the auction because of the lack of mortgage payments. They rely on money to win the global competition Jam to pay the mortgage. Ummm, and 100,000 is not going to pay six months of mortgage back in the premium New York City. Not at all.

Luke has hired Moose, a new New York freshman at NYU who is torn between engineering and please his father and what he truly loves to dance. Of course, all his time to sneak off to repeat the dance has taken a toll on his friendship with Camilla, who obviously has feelings for Moose, who go unnoticed.

Meanwhile, Luke is also recruiting Natalie, another dancer, apparently nowhere to go. Of course, we know that their first encounter is a little too good omen, so something must be hidden. Not so well hidden if you ask me. But I’ll leave that to you.

So as you can tell, the plots are old and weak. They have not been enhanced in any way in this film. They are used in a simple cookie-cutter. That leaves one thing for this movie to succeed, and that is dance. For most, the film brings this aspect to the screen. However, I have a question. It is a question that haunts all cheerleading and dance competition film. Simply, the best choreography routines in competitions always seem to go to the team that loses. Why? While the winner of the competition Jam World Finals is the clear winner, the other dance-offs along the way everything seems to be reversed.

That said, fans of dance would love these movements. Most of them do not look humanly possible. I’m sure there are some speed / slow moments, but overall these movements are executed in real time. So basically, watch the dance segments of the film or ignore it completely.

“Step Up”3″ just like Blu-ray “Step Up”3D.” This is not to be confused with the original film in the series being reissued in 3D. It is not. That being the case, “Step Up”3″ was shot in 3D so I had high expectations for the quality of video and 3D effects. For the most part the film succeeds. There is some ghosting. From the beginning there is the ghost with the overlay outline of the pseudo-video interviews with the dancers. Ghosting on arms and body shapes is also worth noting here and there in the film. I just thought that this 3D so it was not too embarrassing. The colors are excellent. Make sure your screen is calibrated to reflect the loss of brightness when viewing 3D content. If done correctly, colors will be much improved and strong by the levels of contrast and brightness. The black levels are deep enough and stable enough. There are areas of black screen for a few shots haunting the night engulf more details. Details and textures are realistic. All the costumes and the streets of the city contain images breathtaking reality. You almost feel as if you were in New York. Fleshtones are kept natural for most. There is some fluctuation here and there. In terms of 3D effect, the segments of the dance have the largest impact in 3D. Arms and heads drawn from the screen occasionally. The dance routines that involve bubbles and fountains water are refreshing. The water droplets and bubbles to fill your life, depending on your proximity to the 3D display. The dramatic moments in the film are less impressive, but they still have good depth. It is not the best depth I’ve seen on 3D so far, but it is a sight to behold for sure. In terms of 3D, you will not be disappointed with this version.

The audio is spectacular. I’d give this song five stars but it has a little question of balance and dialogue. The dialogue is generally good, but occasionally the dialogue is not as high a priority in the mixture as it should. However, since the script is a complete farces that is not too embarrassing for me on this version. “Step Up”3″ is the second film is natively in 7.1 surround sound, “Toy Story 3″ first. This Blu-ray comes with the original mix in DTS-HD MA 7.1. There are two big stars in this audio track. The first is the LFE channel. I have never heard so LFE content in my life. This track will give your subwoofer the best work she’s ever had and probably will never. It seems almost as mixers forgotten bass management. But then you remember that this is a dance video hip-hop so it is quite expected. Now, the LFE can be pompous, but he did still not going too far. It fits with the genre. The low spreads well in the room, assuming proper configuration subwoofer placement direction and level calibration. The second star of the track is 7, 1. It is used much more effectively than in “Toy Story 3.” The four surround channels are fully integrated, providing for smoother pans in the rear channels. Discrete effects are abundant in the surround channels during the dance segments. The Music and discrete effects are well balanced. Directionality is accurate and convincing. When breaks and sinks into its dramatic moments surround channels are a little lighter than they should be. Although there are of the bustle of New York in the rear, level changes and it is uneven, never quite convincing. Dynamics are explosive when one considers the dialogue is smooth and dance music’s most emphatic hip-hop you ever heard. However, these never take place back-to-back so that the dynamics are subtler. Overall it is a rich audio experience and if you’ve been waiting for more then 7.1 native content is a must have.

Once again, the specifics of this press Blu-ray are all housed on the Blu-ray 2D. “Moves Extra” is a montage of dance. “Born of a Boombox: A Luc Katcher Film”, the short film in its entirety that is seen in the film. There are half a dozen music videos and a making of music videos. There are 20 minutes of footage deleted. The package also contains a DVD / Digital Copy Combo drive. There is no comment, no PiP track, nor anything about the shooting 3D native or native-7.1 mixture.

“Step Up”3″ is definitely jump if you’re at all interested in history. If you love dance then this is a must have. For those who are indifferent, but would like to see action in 3D experience the most convincing 7.1 audio mix so it’s a must have. I recommend this title in terms of technical features.
