    I'm predicting 8's.

    I love Movie Night on DWTS. It makes some of the musical choices for ballroom on SYTYCD seem downright reasonable.

    David Arquette is not a natural dancer by any means, but I appreciate that he did the absolute best he could with what he's got. It was really enjoyable. :cheer: Kym telling him basically anyone can go home so just go out and enjoy was probably the best thing she could have said.

    I wish I had a dime for every time they've mentioned Kristen being booted last week.

    I know. Like she was some sort of favorite. She did well, but not great, had no fanbase.

    The "stomp" is called an appell, and you're only supposed to do it certain steps (and not that loudly unless you're just swaggering, or need help remembering which count is 'one.')

    And I'm sorry Tom, I love Indy, but no. He is not cooler than James Bond. In fact Lucas and Spielberg flat-out said they really really wanted Sean Connery as Henry Jones Sr because they needed someone who had done everything Indy did only better and with more beautiful women, so James Bond was their only option. James Bond is always cool. (Except in a couple Roger Moore films and in "Die Another Day" but we won't talk about those.)

    For me it is his creepy giggle - I am sure that it is a nervous laugh, but it reminds me of a creepy uncle who likes little girls.

    Exactly. They certainly know by now this isn't really a dance show. It's an entertainment show and people vote for the dancers they like and want to see again - which may or may not have anything to do with how they dance.

    I gather that in the dress rehearsal they don't use the special effects, e.g. the smoke. Chynna mentioned that as an issue that caused her to lose it...

    I seem to recall that having been a problem for someone else in the past.

    It's his 'stache-beard-stubble thing. It's creepy.

    Banjo Dude is my new favorite orchestra guy.

    They shouldn't do too many pro dances on performance nights - it just makes everyone else look bad.

    Sword fighting? Pirates of the Caribbean? Very reminiscent of the exhibition Drobiazko and Vanagas did in 2006... I just hope this routine isn't 20 minutes long, too. :scream:

    I'm really glad now I didn't push for this (we use this in lessons, though a version from the movie, not one that sounds like it's being played by a high-school wind ensemble--seriously, they're BAD tonight) as a showcase. Now everyone would think I was copying. Although I do nicer VW than that. And faster.

    Anna is just beautiful! That was sort of odd - fun, but not sure there was enough substance there.

    Carson just cracks me up. He can't really dance, but who cares? Len, you're an old poop.

    The Revenge of the Gay Blade. :lol: You're right Bruno. Who cares? It was fun.

    Isn't "hee--errr" kind of Jack Sparrow in a nutshell, Carrie Anne?

    Len is right, it's kinda crap dancing but Carson is SO MUCH FUN....

    That was...err...something. I like the pink pirate flag? I like the goatee.

    Len is so adorably curmudgeonly tonight.

    Carrie Ann told China to have fun. Notice that they don't need to tell Carson and the audience loves him.

    But even Len said he'd dial in and vote for Carson.

    I think he probably should have tied Chynna (who was overscored, really) because while her content was better, he actually DANCED his. She froze.

    I wonder if they said "she got one of the most famous movie pieces EVER last week with 'Moon River', let's give her the most obscure piece we can possibly come up with"?

    Sorry, if I got this I'd want to know "If I have to do a Queen song used in a movie, can it be 'Princes of the Universe' from Highlander?"

    I agree - I'll have to see if I can find someone to go with me.

    :yikes: that was a horrid ending to Nancy's dance. Len should watch his back, Nancy looks pissed

    Nancy did well, not sure about that last split or whatever it was supposed to be. I disagree with Len.

    That was a weird dance from Nancy. :rofl:

    What happened at the end? Len is grumpy tonight! But I can't say that I disagree w/ alot of what he's saying.

    I've always liked this song....sigh.

    I thought Nancy did a whole lot better than Chynna

    I don't like Nancy, but I think she's been underscored most of the weeks. I thought she did better than Chynna tonight.
