123 - Dance Battle: Flashdance v. Footloose

February 21, 2020

The Fangirls get niche as hell in a new series pitting classic '80s dance movies against each other. Can the banging soundtrack of Flashdance carry it to victory over the horny teens of Footloose? Which movie ranks higher on the dancing lady emoji scale? We admit... the scale needs work. And this week in fangirling: High Fidelity and Brockmire Season 3.
