  • Bringing Up Bobby

    Bringing Up Bobby, Famke Janssen’s directorial debut, is an excellent example of why some actors should stay in front of the camera. Although it’s reasonably well put-together, any attempt at drama, or comedy, or pathos comes off as aggressively soporific. You’ll spend less time watching the film than wondering if Milla Jovovich’s character is a paedophile. Flat, boring and stupid, no one need subject themselves to this rancid cinematic cheese.

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.

Give it a watch and compare them to the Best For Film’s Top Ten Best Aliens and see for yourself.

  • Best For Film’s Favourite Flicks #5 – The Thing

Alex Mullane is armed with a flamethrower, a bit of wire and a bloody great beard, and he’s here to defend the both impeccable taste of the BFF crew and his favourite film – John Carpenter’s The Thing. Obviously, spoilers will abound.
