Kermode and Mayo
This is a few rapid fire posts right here! Two letters to Kermode and Mayo in one week?! Thats how i’m rolling on this sunny Norwegian day… This is the review that i left on the Kermode and Mayo Facebook page. For Marky Marks Latest Film “Contraband” that I saw last week. I will be watching Hunger Games tomorrow afternoon so i may drop the Wittertainment Chaps a line about that as well!

For the uninitiated peoples in the world, one of the main draws of the Kermode and Mayo Film review show is when Mark Kermode comes across a film that is both bad and insulting to humankind. When he watches such a film explosive energy is harvested and stored deep into the roots of his 50’s quiff and left there to fester, coagulate and ferment.
This explosive type of energy is saved until the next time that Mark is in the BBC Radio 2 studio, sitting opposite Simon Mayo and Simon utters the trigger phrase “So now its time to talk about film xyz” or “so what do you think of film abc” and then KABLOOM!!! a full Kermodian Rant ensues.
Top 10.com even lists the top best rants over the past 10 years of the show with the top 5 being…
5. A Nightmare on Elm Street
4. Sex and the City 2
3. Fred: The Movie
2. Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At the Worlds End
1. Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.
Of the rants that I actually have heard my personal favourite is the “Sex and the City 2 Rant” mainly because from the outset he says. You “aren’t going to get a rant” – before exploding into a rant. As you can see in the YouTube clip below:
A good rant does brighten up my week, adding a spring to my step and making me feel happy that i’m not one of the poor people that sat through a film that he has just lacerated! Poor helpless souls I titter mockingly to myself!
