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.
There are so many awesome Christmas films out there, each with a unique and viable message. The Grinch teaches us that ‘Christmas means a little bit more’ which is, at the best of times, a tad vague. Elf teaches us that ‘the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear’… but what’s the “cheer factor” really about? We need a NATIVITY, is what we need.

So instead of beating brides and grooms (with a large stick), let’s join them and celebrate the 10 best things about movie weddings. All together now ahhhhh (puke).
It’s been a decent decade for films, all told. Not as great as the 80’s for sure, but then it has been scientifically proven that that’s impossible. But amidst all the rightfully praised top gear floating about there are quite a few duds that have inexplicably found themselves invited to the same swanky parties. But enough of these painful mixed metaphors – let’s discuss the ten biggest phonies of the decade, shall we?
Whether it be Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace breaking it down 1950s style in Pulp Fiction, or Harry and Hermione’s awkward pas de deux in those Potter films, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten dances in movie history. Let their mistakes be your guide to what and what not to do this Friday night down the club.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but here at Best For Film we’re not massive fans of November. The weather conditions are Baltic, it’s dark and dank outside and the fireworks were an anti-climax. Again. But never fear! The uneventful void between Halloween and Christmas must be filled! And how better than with one our carefully prescribed, life-affirming, top ten ‘Feel-good Films’…..
