  • Psychoanalysis… in 10 Easy Films

    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.

  • 12 Days of Christmas #7 – BFF’s Top 7 Swimming Swans

    FINALLY! It may be only day 7 of our Christmas countdown, but we’re diving into the sherry because it’s the last of the bloody bird-related ones.

  • Friday Drinking Game #58 – Self Love

    After a long and challenging week it’s finally Friday. The weekend is nigh and it’s the perfect time to indulge in a good old drinking game. But this is not just any old drinking game. No. For this drinking game you’ll need to be as unflappable and calm as James Bond, because if not there’s a chance this could get a little out of hand.


  • Cheat Sheet: Mila Kunis

    Is that Emma Stone I see before me? Oh no, wait. It’s Mila Kunis, Stone’s more Ukranian lookalike. You have to admit that these two girls are pretty similar (we won’t say who we think is better…Stone…) and yet so different in many ways. Mila Kunis is actually a good-ish actress, she clearly has a sense of humour and seems like a pretty nice gal. But where did this young minx spring up from? Mila Kunis seems to have cemented herself firmly into Hollywood these days and has taken over from other young starlets as the number one go to person for sex appeal. Whilst this is normally a cause for instant dislike we are for some reason oddly drawn to Mila. Come with us on a magical journey into Mila Kunis. Into Mila Kunis’ WORLD. Sorry, we got a little carried away there. Mila Kunis’ world…




  • Friday Drinking Game #45 – Dance Movies

    You just got served… a drink! In celebration of StreetDance 2 hitting our screens this weekend, we’ve gathered up our fave ever dance flicks, along with plenty of delicious alcohol, and decided to dance like no one’s watching.
