Title: What did you learn in High School?
Post by: byuni on September 24, 2010, 05:29:09 PM
I learned that the words "Creme Brulee" are not funny, no matter how many times they are repeated.

I learned they're still trying to force those same stupid cliched sentiments down the throats of TODAY'S youth as they did in my day, but with about 90,000% more crappy, non-threatening, family-safe pop songs.

I learned that in a high school this large, there is only one fat girl. Also, all the students seem to be the same age.

I learned that a championship high school basketball team can have mostly kids under 5'6". Seriously, the black kid who bakes is the only one on the whole team who looks like he could be on a basketball team.

I learned that a female teacher can just wander into the boys locker room and not get in trouble. I also learned that the basketball coach's office is in said boys locker room.

Fortunately I learned that my testicals will not in fact fall off for having watched this movie. My hatred of everything I saw kept them intact.

The only girl who I thought was really hot was the composer girl. I have learned from the FBI that "they will be keeping an eye on me".

She was 20 when this film was made.

That makes it slightly less creepy but the FBI can't touch you.

I learned:

- That this stuff goes down easier than Twilight, mostly because there's nary a second it takes itself seriously. It's dumber than a bag a of hammers, but I'll take Zac and Vanessa's romance (I don't even remember their stage names) over Bella and Edward.

- All a director needs to do to direct a Disney TV-Movie is yell "Play your part as broadly as humanly possible" and let the details fall where they wish.

- I learned this from my teacher friends, but I found out no one over about 12 really watches this stuff without gagging.

- Brother/Sister groups always teeter on the verge of creepiness, yet most of them don't even bother to see if the lyrics and dance give off an unintended subtext.

- The shy, non-flashy, unpopular, "true artist" of the group doesn't get her inspiration from Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Janis Joplin, or even Imogen Heap. She gets it from her parents' stash of "Up with People" albums. 

- Intonation isn't necessary when you're cute and a raising star.

- All of the mediocre singers in here are the reason people think they are try out for American Idol and make it past the first round.

- My hopes for the movie to end in a Carrie-esque way were probably naive.

For real! And no Native Americans at all. I LIVE by Albuquerque. That was not a sampling of a New Mexico demographic. Not even a little bit. And we don't have green lawns, or trees.

Seriously, if you're going to set the thing in Albuquerque just 'cause the name rocks (Which it does), then like- Go there. Find out what it's LIKE. Try to make your movie look like that.

My high school had an office in each of the locker rooms, too. I just assumed they were all like that, so I didn't really think anything of that.

But I *DID* learn that high schools hold their big championship basketball games at three in the afternoon. You'd think it would take place in the evening when parents and sports fans from the community would be free to attend as well. However, you would be wrong.

Well, if this explains everything -- and it SHOULD -- the movie was actually filmed in Salt Lake City.

- I learned that Sharpay's bipolar disorder is tragically underplayed in this film.  No one should go from vindictive harpy to supportive friend in a matter of seconds like she did without something far more serious going on there.

- I learned that the lady who played the drama teacher should NOT listen to this riff.

- I learned that Disembaudio should have used the entire songs as sync lines.

- I learned that the phrases "gimme gimme" and "shimmy shimmy" should NEVER be rhymed again.  As a matter of fact, the entire lyrics of "Bop to the Top" are a crime against all that is musical and lyrical. 

"Stump stump stump - do the rump"?

"Zip zap zop - walk like a mop"?  :speechless:

- I concur with doggans....not enough Weird Al's "Albuquerque" references were made for my liking. ;D

I learned that the generational divide between me and younger people is wider than I thought. If anyone had liked something like High School Musical when I was in any of the assorted levels of grade school, they'd have been beaten to a bloody pulp.

I also learned that classes can be about five minutes long. Where the crap were these five minute classes when I was in school?

Lastly, if Albuquerque, NM is supposed to be like it is in High School musical, then Pak and I evidently don't live there. Seriously, the producers of the show didn't even try to get it right. NM is the most dressed down, non-preppy, drunken state there is. Not the extended Gap commercial (as Pak phrased it to me) that's represented in the franchise.

Three other things I learned:

- Ashley Tisdale (best known for her understated role as HSM's Sharpe) had a role in Donnie Darko. I now have a small bit of respect for her.

- Olesya Rulin (best known as Kelsi, the piano girl who's counting the days until she can remake herself as a tortured artist in college) was in a movie called "Vampire Chicks with Chainsaws." I actually kind of want to see that movie now.

- There's an Argentinean version called "High School Musical: El Desafío." There are the guys, (http://www.cinemotions.com/data/films/0975/81/2/photo-High-school-musical-El-desafio-2008-2.jpg) at least I think so.

I have some respect for her because she provides the voice of Candace on Phineas and Ferb, one of the best animated shows I've seen in recent years. Now if only Disney would release some season sets of the series.  :(

Wow, took the words right out of my virtual mouth - 100% agreement here, even about the season sets thing.  Big fan of the show and her character myself.  She's definitely got solid comedic and musical talent - she just inherited a thoroughly unpleasant role/script in this particular film.

Something else I learned:

- "Hottie super-bum" is a frequently used phrase among cheerleaders and cheerleader-type teenage girls to describe cute boys.  Or maybe it's "hottie super-bob," it was hard to tell.  Either way, it's frequently used and the use of it is never questioned or given awkward looks.

I guess when it's all said and done, what I learned is that I'm not young anymore. But it's OK, because I also learned I don't want to be. Sure, our generation unleashed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trilogy on an unsuspecting world, but that doesn't seem so bad anymore. :^)

Again, then why set it in Alberquerque? I'm sure if they set it in a northern town where it would be mostly white people. Also, why make a movie set during January where it looks like summer all the time? There is no sense of time passage at all. Heck, even Twilight did that better!

I learned that a shy girl can get up in front of a crowd and instantly sing a flawless rendition of some shitty pop song on a karaoke machine.  Without even looking at the words for most of it!

Interesting quirk about my personality; I am painfully shy on a person to person basis, but when it comes to crowds, I'm very relaxed.  So naturally when I tried karaoke for the first time, I chose one of my favorite songs, (Barenaked Ladies "Falling for the First Time") which I had sung along to in my car several times and knew very well.  I did a pretty good job (I mean at keeping with the beat and singing the words, I'm sure that tonally, I sounded awful, but this isn't American Idol; it's karaoke).  Oh, and my second song that night was "One Week" which you may know has an extremely fast tempo.  The guy who wrote the song can't even keep up with it in karaoke.  I did okay on that too, it was a Hell of a lot of fun.  But it was hardly flawless, and I had to keep my eyes on the karaoke screen the whole time.

My friend K, on the other hand, is extremely shy in front of crowds, and seemed to get a bit of stage fright up there.  She barely stammered out a word when we did our duets.

Yeah, they certainly weren't really good, but they could sing a little. It's just that some of the songs in particular were just so horribly written they had no chance.

I learned that I wish I had gone to this high school. I went to a preppy high school that required all the boys wear ties.

I learned that for the second Rifftrax in a row, I was more interested in looking at the teenaged girls than anything else going on in the movie. I'm 35, and I have to say, even I find that a little creepy.

I'm embarrassed to say I also learned that I like pretty much all musicals, even bad ones. I'll hum along with virtually anything (I actually can sing pretty well but I can't remember lyrics worth a damn). I own recordings of Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserable, and a whole slew of Gilbert and Sullivan stuff. Funny thing is, most of the rest of my music collection is metal.

Oh yeah, I also learned that if you're not actually on camera, you're effectively invisible as far as all other characters are concerned. And I'm not just talking about the scene where Troy is sneaking to the auditorium.

During the scene where Gabriella hides in the bathroom from Sharpay, she's not in view of the camera, but from Sharpay's vantage point inside the bathroom she should be in plain sight. I mean c'mon, even by made-for-TV (for children) standards that seems pretty lax.

Good call there :)  I'm not really up with my TVTropes, but I love how under the Film examples there are two MST3K'ed movies and six Riffttrax'ed movies (seven if you count Casino Royale). Also, this reminds me of Agent for HARM, only in reverse, where the main character walks directly to his flat tire, that we as the audience can see, but he cannot.

Good call there :)  I'm not really up with my TVTropes, but I love how under the Film examples there are two MST3K'ed movies and six Riffttrax'ed movies (seven if you count Casino Royale). Also, this reminds me of Agent for HARM, only in reverse, where the main character walks directly to his flat tire, that we as the audience can see, but he cannot.

Why would you not count Casino Royale?

It's an editable wiki.  You should do a write-up of the HSM scene in there.  I've been meaning to do one for this one scene in Terminator Salvation where Jon is hacking to open the gate to Skynet's base, directly in front of a terminator.  He managed to get through the gate just as the terminator walks on screen.  But since the terminator wasn't on screen before, he didn't exist.

I realized that this is Grease without the (mildly entertaining) subplots....

Boy and girl meet on vacation.  Think they'll never see each other again.  Bizarre coincidence causes her to end up at his high school.  They are almost kept apart by having to keep up appearances for others.....

I learned that high schools have gardens on the roof.

Never saw The Rage: Carrie 2 then?   ;)

I learned that this movie strikes so much fear in my house that it took over a year to watch. And wowza...it was bad.

I learned that if you want to pop lock you mustn't...you need to stick to the status quo.

I learned that everyone was in the cafeteria were agreeing that the 2 main characters shouldn't sing in the musical WHILE they were singing about it. Hmmm, makes sense.
