Fangirl Friday – The A-Team

Recreaction of intertitle from The A-Team base...

When I was growing up, one of the shows my family watched together was The A-Team.  We loved it. I was half in love with Face. With the way they ruined The Dukes of Hazzard movie, you can see how I was a little gun-shy about one of my other favorite shows making the upgrade.

I shouldn’t have worried. Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and Sharlto Copley did an outstanding job of breathing new life into the beloved characters as they brought them to the screen. I fangirl-squealed (a sound that only other fangirls and some dogs can hear) five minutes in and didn’t stop. The most rewarding part? So did my mom. My only regret is that I didn’t get a chance to see it in the theater. Those explosions would have been WAY cooler on one of those giant screens!

Now the actors, while integral, weren’t the only reason the movie was satisfying. The whole team involved did a brilliant job, from screenwriter to producer to key grip. The storytelling was solid, the camera work was magnificent, and the CGI was so well done you almost didn’t notice it.

What about you? What tv show turned movie twisted your twizzler the most?

  1. I was VERY pleased with the A-Team movie, and I want more! Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson were just a bonus. The story was non-stop fun and the special effects were fabOoolous!

    Your post goes very nicely with my ’80s themed posts this week. 🙂
