Dwayne Johnson has proved himself a (minor) force to be reckoned with both in and out of the WWE square circle. We think he should move in to Hollywood full-time.

You can’t say he ain’t versatile.
Our newest and goriest column continues with the latest clotted, coagulating thoughts to drip from Duncan Vicat-Brown’s mangled fingertips. This week, he’s heading back into the Abattoir to take a look at the best jump scenes in horror history…
Psychoanalysis has been tormenting society with its uncomfortable conclusions about your mum for the last century. It has had a huge influence on film, giving filmmakers the opportunity to explore the dark dank recesses of the human psyche while still entertaining with vague references to “penis envy” and “momma’s boy”. We here at Best For Film have dedicated our lives to reducing entire film genres, movements and occasionally random objects (like glasses, or zoos) into easy-to-read lists, and as such we have launched a new blog series, starting with this one: Psychoanalysis in 10 Easy Films.
After one hundred and eleven weeks (plus all the ones we forgot) of defending your right to just have someone tell you what films to see on a Wednesday, the OWLs are in great peril.

So for now, dive into what might well be your last ever complimentary paddling pool of citrus and cynicism. Parting is such sweet sorrow…

Gwyneth Paltrow will soon be back on our screens in Iron Man 3 – and she even gets to don the iconic metal suit this time. She’s pretty well known, but there’s got to be some stuff you didn’t know about her. Or maybe you know someone who has been living under a rock since 1989 and doesn’t know she is? Kindly refer this out-of-touch person to our cheat sheet that has everything you could ever need on Paltrow, and a lot of things you probably won’t need.
Best For Film has, over the years, tried to bring you the facts that other movie sites ignore. From useful Top 10 guides (hello must-see horror films of 2012!) to not-quite-so-useful lists (top 10 movie cats, anyone?), we’ve pretty much covered every single possible rankings-related question you could have in your cinephiliac brain. And now, in a joyous moment of celebration, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of our best articles, by some of our best writers, and pull out the top 10 most important things Best For Film has ever taught us (via an information-packed Top 10 list). You’re welcome.
