Best For Film’s Favourite Flicks returns, and this week it’s safely in the hands of bona fide writer – seriously, she did a radio play and everything – Florence Vincent. What are you going to go for, Flo? Which bastion of classic cinema reigns supreme within your heart? Citizen Kane? Vertigo? What’s that – something more recent? How about Taxi Driver? Sátántangó? Requiem for a Dream? Oh, it’s a not-quite-nineties teen film with the Thong Song guy in it. Obviously.
There’s only one villain who has really been the salsa on the Old El Batman enchilada, and that’s the Joker. Between Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, that role is all sewn up, and we pray no one ever touches it again. Ever. However, with Tom Hardy’s Bane looking legitimately bed-wettingly scary, we at BFF Towers wondered why so many of Batman’s other enemies didn’t make the cut. From Anarky to Calendar Man, let us take you through what could have been, if Nolan’s films had been intended for the Disney Channel.
It’s National Priest Day 2012 everyone! Congratulations, priests of the world! You earned it! Wait, what’s that? There’s no such thing as National Priest Day? Well then why is there so much priest stuff going on at the cinema at the moment? Like this thing and this other nonsense? Whatever the reason, BFF is proud to bring you a list of the top ten sexiest clergymen from the world of cinema. DISCLAIMER: This is the top ten list that the Vatican DOESN’T want you to see. Or whatever, they probably aren’t aware of its existence.
STOP PRESS: Michelle Williams is fabulous in My Week with Marilyn. As she is is literally everything else she’s ever made, ever. By rights, you should know her blood type and preferred cut of underwear by now – and if you don’t, then why are you lingering here and not ploughing straight into this Cheat Sheet? Go! Go!
This summer, you can hardly move for superhero films – and Green Lantern aside, we’ve seen most of the stars before. All the classic heroes have had a fair few outings with different faces by now, and if there’s one thing we hate about competition it’s not knowing who’s the WINNER. Feel like arbitrarily deciding whether Michael Keaton’s better at being grumpy than Christian Bale? Good.
High School. It’s all cringing in gym class, avoiding detention, chastely kissing the school jock and going to prom. Sod that for a game of British Bulldog, we all know school is really about sex, drugs and er, demonic possession. Roll up, roll up for the ten greatest alternative High School Movies ever made…
Sinbad and the Minotaur is an Australian film about a mythical Arab wading into Greek legend, and it treats both cultures about as respectfully as you’d expect from a country which used to forcibly rehome Aboriginal children. Under no circumstances whatsoever should you watch it.
