Because we don’t like you to try new things without our express permission, we took it upon ourselves to give the Pyjama Party: Dance Edition at the cushy Prince Charles Cinema a whirl – six films, ten hours, millions of jazz hands. With booze. And a onesie. Under the dictionary definition of “a good time”, you will find a picture of us attempting the Dirty Dancing lift, at 6am, blind drunk.
You just got served… a drink! In celebration of StreetDance 2 hitting our screens this weekend, we’ve gathered up our fave ever dance flicks, along with plenty of delicious alcohol, and decided to dance like no one’s watching. Except they are. They’re watching and they’re judging and they’re doing shots depending on how it all goes down…
They’re remaking Footloose?! FOOTLOOSE?! Well, yes, but hear me out; you can put your pitchforks and capital letters away as they won’t be needed here. While ostensibly a classic, the original Footloose was no masterpiece, it wasn’t infallible, and it certainly does not constitute hallowed ground. Not that that stops director Craig Brewer from treating it thusly, Footloose knows exactly what it is: a contemporary feel-good film with an unusually rich heritage, and it’s all the better for it.
Legally Blonde. Ghost. Footloose. They all have one thing in common; they’re all movies that have been turned into highly questionable musicals. And, with rumours of Fight Club hitting the West End in the not so distant future, BFF have decided to take action…
Nothing has ever had two trailers and then not happened. This is definitely happening, folks.
Whether it be Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace breaking it down 1950s style in Pulp Fiction, or Harry and Hermione’s awkward pas de deux in those Potter films, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten dances in movie history. Let their mistakes be your guide to what and what not to do this Friday night down the club.
First time Swedish director/writer Ruben Ostlund is probably feeling very smug. Highly acclaimed and multi award-winning, Involuntary uses crafty shots and uncomfortable everyday situations (welcome to my life) to present five stories, each with their own potential disasters. With possible real life situations told through creative framing, it’s like watching a film through the eyes of a stalker. Creepy. Unless you are a stalker. Then enjoy.
Paramount have announced their reboot of Footloose is no more. Seems they’re finally listening to the public’s cries of “Dear God, no more remakes!” Either that or both their star director and lead actor have dropped out.
