This one’s been a very long time coming, with the plethora of amazingly shot and produced dance music based mostly movies it appears solely crucial that we compile a brief checklist of those you need to watch both as a result of they’re disgustingly unhealthy, or like barely higher than horrible.

This is a brief checklist as a result of we’re not about to power you into watching many of those, heck you don’t have to observe any of them to be trustworthy. Just learn the bloody checklist.

The Good:

It’s All Gone Pete Tong (2004)

Probably our favorite of the lot, ‘It’s All Gone Pete Tong’ is a little bit of a darkish comedy a couple of DJ on the high of their recreation who loses his listening to and as such struggles to exist as knowledgeable DJ. It’s broadly thought to be one of many higher dance music films. This has a few laughs and a little bit of unhappiness, however is finally a little bit of a enjoyable one that permits you to snigger on the exaggerated DJ tradition of the time.

Berlin Calling (2008)

Berlin Calling follows a DJ who has a psychological breakdown on the peak of his profession. It’s one other darkish comedy, however does properly to focus on the scene on the time which is fairly neat! It will get a bit intense at occasions, however is certainly value a watch!


The Bad:

XOXO (2017)

I’m not going to mislead you all, I’ve personally watched this right through. I couldn’t inform you why I did that, however I can inform you that it sucks. Following a younger fezzie woman and a younger producer who’re fated to fulfill at this enormous competition XOXO. It’s filled with corny cliche and low-key ruins a considerably cool raver/competition motion that had been taking place across the time. I don’t counsel anybody to ever watch this.

Kevin And Perry Go Large (2000)

Alright, let’s be actual this one isn’t good as a result of it’s good, it’s good as a result of it’s so unhealthy you’ll be able to’t assist however adore it. It follows some ’15 12 months previous’ intercourse crazed children who go to Ibiza to try to get laid and progress their music careers. Known for the basic line “YOU ARE NOT MY MATE AND YOU ARE NOT MY FELLOW DEE-JAY” an actual climactic a part of the film that grow to be a meme. Probably value a examine simply so you will get the context of that iconic line.

The Somewhere In-Between:

We Are Your Friends (2015)

This one shouldn’t be as unhealthy because it sounds. It’s a couple of (you guessed) younger producer and DJ attempting to make it within the music trade in opposition to the percentages. Yes it stars Zac Effron, and sure it’s just a little corny, nevertheless it’s not about 15 12 months olds in order that’s a win in my ebook. There’s a little bit of grownup drama in it and a little bit of considerably relatable DJ life which is why it slides into the ‘Somewhere In-Between’ class.

Ibiza (2018)

This one’s one other a kind of, ‘not as unhealthy because it appears’ ones. So take it with a grain of salt, have a little bit of fun, realise that it’s simply Hollywood being dumb. It follows some women attempting to hunt out a scorching DJ in Spain and properly it’s a little bit of dumb enjoyable and nothing extra.

So there are some films in the event you’re feeling bored and like fun on a Friday evening
