THE FP Movie Review By: RAMA

THE FP Movie review

Did RAMA put on his dancing shoes after watching the film? Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Yo, clamchowders! Can you dig it?! THE FP got me laughing so hard, I thought I was going to die fo shizzle, this is an instant cult classic, it may hit theaters nationwide but I guarantee it will be fans’ favorite for years to come.

Gather round, suckas! Because THE FP is hilarious, outrageous, all the geous you can think of… yo!..

In a dystopian future, arelentless turf war rages. Two rival gangs feud for control of rural wasteland Frazier Park (‘The FP’) in the deadly arena of competitive dance-fight video game “Beat-Beat Revelation.” After hometown hero BTRO is slain on the dance platform by thug leader L Dubba E, his protégé younger brother JTRO (Jason Trost) goes into isolation, vowing never to duel again. One year later, The FP is in ruins, and JTRO must find the courage to return and restore order in a ruthless battle for revenge that can only leave one man dancing. From the producers of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and featuring narration by James Remar (THE WARRIORS), THE FP is a fury of fierce footwork, triumphantmontages and neon street wear that Moviefone calls “a rare ready-made cult hit.”

If you haven't seen the trailer here you go-

I think the part that stands out the most about this R-rated comedy is the concept itself, the fact that somebody, in this case two filmmmaking brothers, cooked this up, is just brilliant. Who would’ve thought that in our lifetime there’d be a comedy that’s all about beat beat revolution, It’s about freakin’ time, right?!

Second most memorable part are the costumes, think if mad max post apocalyptic look marries The Warrior‘s look and had an affair with Michael Jackson’s jacket from the music video ‘Beat It’!
The third part that stands out is the street language used in this film. These are people who aren’t gangsta, acting like they’re gangsta and you know that never stops being funny.

The story structure is very familiar, a man whose best bud falls in a tournament, he then vows to never enter that world again, so the film kinda parodies those cheesy ’80s action films like Commando.. even the music sounds retro at times. The dialogues are over the top and you know the actors try hard to dramatize every line and sequence just to get laughs and it works.
THE FP’s humor banks on the film’s silly and bizarre approach, everything you deem normal goes out the window, so if that’s not your cup of tea, if you’re not open to things that you don’t expect comin’ a mile away, then go watch something else, clamchowders!

GRADE: 4 out of 5

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
