Being at the top of the food chain is quite nice, don’t you think? There’s no hassle of running for your life; no need to cower among the shadows; no expectation of a gory death from gnashing teeth. Yup! Things are pretty sweet for us homo sapiens. So much so that we forget how vulnerable and ill-equipped we are when it comes to facing the animal kingdom, mano-a-mano. Hollywood, however, does not and so, this week, BFF has dedicated the Top 10 to re-capping those very timely reminders.
Let The Right One In director Tomas Alfredson has taken the helm of the new adaptation of The Brothers Lionheart – frankly, we’re just staggered by the fact that not one but two separate studios have wanted to introduce new generations of kids to Astrid Lindgren’s deeply odd classic. The Wikipedia entry for the first film notes, gravely, that it is “softened a bit [from the book] and does not explicitly show the brothers committing suicide”, which probably tells you all you need to know. In dubious celebration of Alfredson’s odd career choices, we’ve collected ten other children’s books that should never have been committed to celluloid.
Pedro Almodóvar’s new film Los Amantes Pasajeros, or I’m So Excited to us English-speaking jerks, is officially out in cinemas everyone! It’s obviously going to be totally weird because it’s by Pedro Almodóvar. Did you guys see that movie, The Skin I Live In? WHAT WAS THAT? Anyway, this film is more or less The Skin I Live In On a Plane. More importantly, though, the film shares its English title with a very famous song by The Pointer Sisters, which got us thinking: what other films out there have famous songs for titles? Turns out, loads. Because nothing in this wretched world is original.
Glasses. They’re weird, aren’t they? Bits of plastic or glass slapped over your stupid face that either serve a purpose by bending light in the exact way that your warped and pathetic eyeballs fail to do, or they serve no purpose other than to obscure your epidermis. Why would anyone bother compiling a list of glasses? Because we’re Best For Film AND THAT’S HOW WE ROLL.
Summer is coming, guys! It really, genuinely is – we’ve seen sunshine and weather reports and everything. But, you know, there’s no point losing your head to the season; in fact, looking at the plethora of summer movies on offer, summer is in fact the DEADLIEST time of year. Ever. So, in a bid to keep all of our loyal BFF patrons alive, here’s the top 10 things to avoid this summer – as seen in the movies…
No romance here, guys – we’re bored of all those piffly romantic movie breakup lists we’ve seen scattered all over the place. We get it, y’know – love is fleeting, heartache is awful, blah blah blah. But you know what’s even worse than losing your one true love? Losing your best friend. And so, to celebrate / mourn the demise of JLS, we’ve decided to take a look back over the top 10 most devastating movie breakups of all time. Ready your tearducts, people!
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.
God forbid RDJ should ever decide Iron Man isn’t for him any more, but in case he does it’s worth looking at his potential replacements. How about a retired Tony Stark? What about a stand-up comic Tony Stark? Would you say no to a FEMALE Tony Stark? We’ve done some casting so Marvel don’t have to.
