Throwback Thursday: Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984)

The story of David vs. Goliath is one that resonates in every corner and culture around the world. The struggle of the common person vs the person who holds the cards and throws around their weight because they hold the cards is one that we call relate to.

In Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo (1984), a wealthy developer wants to bulldoze a local community center and use the land for something else entirely. It’s up to Kelly (Lucinda Dickey), Ozone (Adolfo Quinones) and Turbo (Michael Chambers) to convince the developer to keep the community center open.

Intellectual, this movie is not. Totally cheese-tastic 80’s, of course it is. But there is something redeeming in the message of community and finding the common ground with someone who you might normally walk away from.

I recommend it.
