Favorite Dance Sequences
Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights - “Do You Only Want to Dance” // Diego Luna and Romola Garai
Oh, yes, the prequel to Dirty Dancing made in 2004 that featured Patrick Swayze playing a younger version of Johnny Castle … this fact alone justifies this film’s existence. While this film never quite captured the original film’s magic (partly because it wasn’t really about a young woman’s sexual awakening but about dancing … what a bore), it still holds a special place in my heart for its dancing sequences and this is my favorite. Even from this gif set, you can see the sequence is edited to death (let a shot run for more than 2 seconds!!!), I still enjoyed the movement. The way Javier and Katey move is passionate and perfect.

CHAPTER 12 …. AMELIA’S LAST FARWELL
One of the beautiful things about this, and by beautiful I mean heartbreakingly bittersweet, is that Amy would have never loved Rory with all her heart and soul if it weren’t for The Doctor. She never would have known that Rory would wait two thousands years for her, that Rory would destroy entire starship fleets to get her back, that she could miss Rory so much that she would will him back into existence because an Amy without Rory doesn’t make sense. She never would have known any of that if it wasn’t for The Doctor and their time together. In essence, the more time she spent with The Doctor, the less she needed him while the opposite was true for The Doctor. It was always going to be choice between The Doctor and Rory, which life would be everything and in the end, life with The Doctor simply wasn’t enough. The universe, all of what was and ever will be, the whole of time and space wasn’t enough because a life without Rory is no life at all.
I remember when I read the first draft of the script, and that scene, the little prayer, affected me. When I did it in the movie it did, and it did the same to me right now. This is a theory that I’ve always had; creating moments in movies, this I think is the important thing. Nobody knows exactly how it happens. What you should do is to prepare yourself as best as you can to make these moments happen. Because in a movie is really not so much the performance, there are moments.
This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.
