Twitter has lit up this morning with the news that Tom Daley, that lovely diver boy who now seems to do more TV than swimming, has outed himself as bisexual in a pleasant and unassuming little YouTube video. So, obviously, we’re getting a blog out of it. YOU KNOW HOW WE DO.
Ok, ok, after we’ve all managed to catch our breath after the collective ARRGGHHHing, whether of excitement or despair, caused by the news that JK Rowling’s writing a new wizard thing, and after certain editors have got their rocks sufficiently off by blasting her for having the audacity to further explore her own intellectual property, let’s look at the situation with a little perspective, a phrase which here means “let’s give the girl some credit.” Here are the top ten reasons some of us are, let’s say “cautiously optimistic” about the Newt Scamander Saga.
Harry Potter vs Luke Skywalker: who would win? “Expelliarmus!” *catches wrong end of lightsaber*
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.

Can you believe that there’s only 6 days until Christmas!? Let us commiserate at the implacable march of time by considering our top 8 maids a-milking. There’s a lot of fertile subject matter here, but it’s become a little tribute to some of the most important themes of Christmas – family, togetherness, the sacrifices of a loving mother, baby Jesus and… um… Joe Pesci? Whatever. Milky maids. Let’s do it.
Francis Lawrence will spin those adaptations of The Hunger Games out as fast as you can eat them
With the news that one of Angie’s sprogs is going to be making a cameo appearance in the upcoming Maleficent, we got thinking about good ol’ nepotism. It’s what enabled Sofia Coppola to get her dirty face all over Godfather 3, introduced Miley Cyrus to the world of fame and singlehandedly brought Rumer Willis’s chin to the attention of paparazzi everywhere. The thing with nepotism, though, is that – despite the fact it works out a lot of the time (see: Angelina Jolie, Jeff Bridges) – sometimes, just sometimes, it spawns people like Jason Connery. Wondering who that is? Then it’s time for you to meet the top ten actors spawned by far more successful parents, and thank your lucky stars that you don’t have a famous mother or father.
