Camp Rock

Well, I just finished watching the “world premiere” of Camp Rock on the Disney Channel. Pretty good – not High School Musical (one, not two), but good. My favorite part about these movies are the following:

  1. New interest in singing and dancing. Who ever thought that musicals would be cool again? I’ve been waiting for this day!
  2. Awesome hip hop dancers and poppers. By far the best part of the movie.
  3. Funny scenes that are basically duplicates of movies that I love. I like going “oh, this is the scene from Grease” or “this is the scene from Dirty Dancing.” That’s right, “nobody puts Baby in a corner” and “I carried a watermelon” scenes might not be word for word, but they’re there if you know what you’re looking for!

Sadly, I think I may be getting too old to really appreciate these new movies. They seem so lame in some parts. I guess the high school romantic comedies are more my thing. What’s wierd is that the movie had some great dancing, and then Mitchie (Demi Lovato) moves like a crazy person when she sings at the end. Totally awkward – like Brooke White dancing on American Idol.

I love that at the bottom of the webpage on, it says “Camp Rock is not a real camp, it’s a new movie!” Give it time, Disney, give it time.

Anyway, I saved it on the Tivo for when my 10 year old niece comes to visit. She’s going to love it.
