Remember when Top 10 lists weren’t depressing, but uplifting? They reminded you about which beach bodies were buffest, and who was the richest, and which holiday destinations were best. This list isn’t like that. This is a sad list. Now, this sad list has parameters because we aren’t talking about merely becoming older, for that is unaccountably ageist, and we at Best For Film love those close-to-death, crotchety, ‘back in my day’ old timers. We aren’t here to make fun of those rushing headlong into the endless sleep. No, no dear friends, we are here to make fun of those actors and actresses that have become freaks of nature. Welcome to our sad list guys. You won’t thank us.

In honour of this momentous occasion (and also to herald the almost release of this gem), BFF brings you the Top Ten list of movie presidents (both fictional and non-fictional for double the pleasure!).
With Nicholas Cage galloping back onto the screen for the long awaited (ahem) sequel to Ghost Rider this week, what better way to celebrate than with a high speed, booze fuelled marathon of motorbike classics?

Adam Sandler has irritated the hard-working folks at BFF Towers just one too many times. He’d been treading a dogged path with us, pumping out horrible slapstick comedies, but then he did Funny People. And we thought “hey… maybe we’ve been wrong about Adam? Maybe he’s not so… OH MY GOD IT’S JACK AND JILL!!! The horror! THE HORROR!” So then we decided to invent fun and new ways to murder him. Roll on the top 10 missed opportunities for killing Adam Sandler…
We love films. Well, we love most of them. Some of them are only OK, and some of them we’d like to get our greasy paws on and re-cast and re-direct all together. Here are five of them, because ten would have gotten me over-excited and I’d never be able to settle for my nap otherwise.
BAFTA in association with the BFI have just launched their second series of lectures from super famous screenwriters. Whether you want to write movies or you just like watching them, there’s no excuse to miss this inspiring lecture series. And there’s movie clips too, in case you get bored of all the yacking.
