Lady Chocolat took offense at my previous post, which likened modern action films with ballet. She felt this did a disservice to ballet.
Which is a fair comment. Ballet doesn't have a character spouting inane dialogue.
(For the rest of it, though, I'm afraid the comparison is apt: both are heavily choreographed, both require extreme training for detailed physical performance, and ballet doesn't actually tend to have particularly coherent plots. I mean, just look at The Nutcracker: all those crazy squirrels running all over the place...)
Oh, I'm going to pay for that one...
