Kevin & Perry Go Large (2000)
A Right Laugh
I have just finished watching this film for the 100th time and I still love it. It has comedy, romance and good Trance Music.
The story is about Kevin who wants a holiday in Ibiza because he wants to become a world famous DJ in the process, so he asks his parents who at 1st say no. But there wouldn't be a film if they stuck to their guns.
So they go to Ibiza where they meet a DJ who doesn't like them much but they are too thick to see it.
Anyway I love this film and the music that was chosen for the film are just pure Trance classics, ranging from Ayla, to I Feel Love. When this first came out I was never bothered about Trance but as i've got older I like the music more and I always wonder what Ibiza would have been like in the 98/99 Trance Boom.
There are hilarious moments in the film like Perry letting a number 2 out in the sea and everyone running from it. Perry hearing Kevin's mam and dad at it in the next bedroom.
The music was mixed by Judge Jules who I must say picked some blinding songs and it goes with the party vibe that Ibiza is known for. I still haven't been to Ibiza and would love to go, The extras on the DVD are loads but very shallow, you have a guessing game, interviews, trailers and other similar features but don't let that put you off buying the film.
MMA Version Of THE FIGHTER
Last night I watched Warrior which is an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) film about two brothers played by Tom Hardy & Joel Edgerton that don't get along.
Tommy (Joel) is an ex marine that is haunted by his past of almost drowning and dying which has made him go off the rails. Brendan on the other hand is an ex MMA fighter who is now a teacher and also has the perfect family but he has a problem, he has no money coming in and could lose his house.
That is until they both hear about a huge MMA event called SPARTA which could turn both of their lives around.
Now let's be honest, if you've seen THE FIGHTER then you know what to expect, this is near enough the same story just with a different sport and I will admit it was a good film which starred lots of real MMA fighters and UFC stars (including WWE / TNA wrestling star KURT ANGLE which puts in a menacing performance).
It just wasn't what I expected, yes the fights are well filmed and it is like watching a UFC event in the fight scenes.
I just didn't warm to any of the characters and it was more drama then action (which can be a good thing) but this left me cold as you can see who the main fight is going to be against before it even gets there.
The film rushes to it's main event final and it seems that in the film everyone and their dog is really into MMA like a religion and their TV is stuck on the channel that is showing MMA, UFC, ESPN MMA News (anything to do with MMA).
It just seemed rushed to me like they had ran out of ideas so it was a quick let's get to the main event.
So i'll end it here by saying if you like MMA check this film out, otherwise your not missing much as their are films that tell this type of story better.
