What’s your favourite Len Wiseman movie? Before you do yourself an injury trying to weigh the cons and cons of Underworld and Die Hard 4, let me put you out of your misery: as of August 29th, 2012, the answer will be Total Recall. Heck, it might even be your film of the summer. And believe me, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about.
Whaddaya mean no?
OH LOOK, it’s another European action film that’s been needlessly rehashed into a big-budget American dross rocket. Hurrah! Mark Wahlberg plays Smuggler Who No Longer Smuggles; guess what he’s going to do? That’s right! He’s going to punch and grumble his way through two hours of your life, which you will NEVER get back.
Underworld is back, and having tempted Kate Beckinsale back into the franchise’s trademark catsuit it isn’t long before she is jumping off of really tall buildings only to land silently as though nothing has changed. While this might still constitute somewhat of a return to form for the series, however, we are still left wondering how exactly it earned one sequel, let alone three.
The Thing is out today! Hurrah (maybe). What better way to honour its arrival than to crack open a few cold ones and settle down amidst your furs with a snowy horror film? Whether it’s 30 Days of Night, Let the Right One In or Dead Snow, BFF have you covered. Be prepared for CHILLS.
In the immortal words of Noddy Holder, “IT’S CHRIIISSSSSTTTMAAAAASSS!!”. Well, not quite yet. But it is the first day of December today (we don’t miss a trick here at BFF). And to celebrate, we bring you the top ten films that sound as though they should be about Christmas but really, really aren’t. Luckily, we’ve reinvented all these titles to make them more palatable this Yule.
