Bobby Burns has taken the beloved Disney Film and run it through the Hammer Films blender.
Sometimes, just sometimes, we all need an excuse to squeeze a few tears out. It helps us prove that we’re not dead inside, for starters, and allows us to get all our angst out without anybody judging us. At least, they can’t judge us TOO harshly… here are our top ten tearjerkers, as selected by the BFF team from our film database.
You never see a hard-working chair in the Hollywood credits, do you? Never doffed your cap to a really brilliant curtain, or a staggeringly talented knife? We celebrate the unsung heroes of the cinematic world: the inanimate objects that made their films iconic.
If you’re bored, London-bound and film orientated over the next week or so, you’d do well to check out the Story Of London Festival – running until the 10th of October with events throughout the capital of our fine, vaguely depressed nation. We’ve cherry-picked the best FREE events for film lovers looking for something a little different, read on!
A British re-make of a black French comedy, Wild Target is a film that, sadly, never quite hits the bullseye. Bill Nighy, Rupert Grint, Rupert Everett, Martin Freeman and Emily Blunt all lent their hands to this crime caper, with a script never quite lives up to the talent around it. Despite its stellar cast and romping pace, the team are let down by bad jokes, sloppy storytelling and cliche characters.
It’s not out here till October, but we’re all used to being bombarded with advertising well in advance now, right? Social Network – the movie based on the life and times of the creators of Facebook – have released their first poster, as well as giving a wee hint as to their central website.
A couple of months ago, Matthew Vaughn’s hyperviolent Kick-Ass somersaulted over the graves of Watchmen and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, proving that comic book-inspired action movies can be every bit as smart and sassy as the cult pictorials they are based on. Director Sylvain White continues the good work with The Losers, an explosive romp based on the potty-mouthed DC Comics series written by Andy Diggle and illustrated by Jock.
Hurrah! It’s official! Chris Evans has signed on the dotted line, and is now going to be playing Captain America in the upcoming Marvel flicks.
Well done Chris, you fought off a lot of stiff competition, with other actors considered including Michael Cassidy, Patrick Flueger, Mike Vogel, John Krasinski, Chace Crawford and Ryan Phillippe. The only problem now is that we have seen Evans in a super-flick before, as Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four. Does it matter?
It’s been reported today that Sigourney Weaver is set to star alongside Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter (of Confessions of Shopaholic non-fame) in a new modern twist on the vampire flick. The film will tell the tale of happy young vampire girls, happily chewing their way through innocent men everywhere.
