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.
Are you tired of long, cold, wintry nights with nothing to do? Are you thinking that it’s about time somebody appreciated your extensive and totally useless knowledge concerning Spaghetti Westerns of the 1970s? Then you, my friend, are going to love the iconic pub-film-quiz, You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat. YGNABB, as we like to call it, has been running since 2003, and tomorrow sees their annual Review of the Year quiz hit the Hackney Picturehouse like an H.G. Wells invasion. Look, it’s the perfect opportunity to show off your movie trivia surrounded by friends and drinks! Not that you don’t do that already, you cheeky monkey…
British horror films. The very mention of the genre is enough to strike fear into the heart of many a film goer, although not necessarily for the right reasons. If a bunch of half naked, shiny haired teenagers being decapitated just doesn’t do it for you, then perhaps the horrific and bizarre Berberian Sound Studio is right up your street. However if the main read in your life is The Daily Mail it might be best to stick to the slutty teens…
With Magic Mike out at cinemas and The Casserole Club on a DVD hopefully nowhere near you, our minds here at Best For Film Towers have turned to mush from all of the thrusting and grinding that we have seen going on. We wondered what we could do to calm everyone down and so bring you the 10 WORST sex scenes and cringe worthy sex moments in cinema history. The Casserole Club happily does not feature. It could take up all 10 places all by its cringy, kinky self…Trust us.
It’s Monday, and after a solid couple of days of recreational brain cell murder you’re probably feeling a bit rough up in the head bits. Whether your weapon of choice was Jagermeister or the new season of The Only Way Is Essex (shame on you all), we have the perfect brain workout to get the poor withered thing back into shape; a healthy dose of David Lynch.
If there’s one thing that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has given us (and I’m including both the Swedish original and David Fincher’s recent blockbuster when I say this) it’s a new Goth poster-girl for the 21st century. Lisbeth Salander has not only shown the world that girls with ropey piercings and Misfits haircuts are hot, it’s that they can kick ass as well.
Ewww…. Ahhhh…. Eeeesh… That doesn’t go there! Let’s be honest: you don’t want to read this article and we’re really sorry we wrote it. Mildly NSFW, and seriously NSFSanity.
This week our faithful cheat sheet looks at the ever rising star that is Bradley Cooper. Between his love of cooking, helping inner-city children, being fluent in French, his adorable pet dogs and his general talent at ACTING we cannot say a bad word about him. Disgusting, isn’t it?
