HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE Review: Step Up 3 (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)

Synopsis: When the Maryland School of the Arts (MSA) goes to Paris for an international dance competition, one of the dancers - Moose (Adam G. Sevani) - misses his flight back to Baltimore. He soon makes friends with an American away from home and a beautiful French sophisticate. They introduce Moose to the red-hot Parisian underground dance scene, and before long he is wowing the local dancers with his unique moves as they prepare for an underground dance competition. With time running out before the big event and their routine stolen by a rival crew, Moose turns to his loyal MSA crew in Baltimore for help. Can Moose, the MSA crew and the French crew pull together a new dance number at the last minute? And will it be good enough to beat the world’s best street dancers?

You know how sometimes when you watch a sequel, you can't help but compare it to the original and think that the first one was so much better?  Step Up 3 is the exception to that rule.  Yes, it is the third movie in a series but it really could stand alone.  The plot is intriguing, the passion between the main stars is too hot for words and the dancing is unbelievable!  I don't normally watch movies more than once, especially in only a few days time and I've already watched Step Up 3 four times!  That's a new record for me.  I watched the regular DVD first and then watched the Blu-ray version and there was a huge difference!  The picture quality is so much better on Blu-ray and the screen seemed to come to life.  I enjoyed this movie so much and it would make a great gift for the holidays!

One of my favorite features on this DVD is the music videos.  I put them on while I'm cleaning the living room and it makes the chore so much more enjoyable.  I catch myself dancing around the living room (not nearly as well as the dancers in Step Up 3 but I have a lot of fun anyway).  My second favorite feature is the documentary because it gives you new perspective and adds little details that are really enjoyable for the viewer.
