I know this post is about 2 weeks to late, but I just saw Stomp The Yard last night and all I can say is damnnnnn! Don't ask me anything about the story line or if the plot was fully developed because honestly none of that mattered, at least not to me and my best friends who accompanied me to see the film.
I can't remember the last time I saw a film that revealed so much of the male body. I originally wanted to go and see Dreamgirls again for the fourth time but I was out voted. However, throughout the night as I was watching Columbus Short and Brian K. White I found myself channeling James Thunder Early and saying, "Help me Jesus!" .
The homoerotic elements in this film are unbelievable. I know many of the dancers who were involved in the movie and although they played the hetero role on screen I know what happens after the director says cut.
I would like to personally thank my girl Twinkie Byrd in LA for the flawless casting. Stomp The Yard won't be nominated for any major awards next year( ok...well they're sure to get a NAACP Image award nomination) but it sure did get my attention(no pun intended).
