I don't know what Buzzfeed's connection to Center Stage is, and frankly, I don't care. Because whatever cosmic force is driving the site's writers to put out post after brilliant post about the Greatest Movie of Our Times is obviously a force for good.
Back in September, we got "Why Center Stage Was the Best Movie of 2000." That may sound like a silly idea (I mean forget 2000, it's the best movie of all time), but in actuality the post was rather insightful, particularly in its recognition of the two greatest quick changes EVER:
And now we have "How Well Do You Know Center Stage?", the perfect little #TBT quiz. Obviously, you need to take it immediately.
