Have you ever thought to yourself ‘This is a nice film about the President Of The United States, but why isn’t he wearing trainers, kicking a Bad Man in the face and screaming “KEEP YO HANDS OFF MY JORDANS” as lots of paintings burn around him?’ White House Down. It’s what would happen if we…
Foxx swaps Dirty South for White House.
A historical comedy telling of how the vibrator was originally invented for a perceived medical purpose, Hysteria’s story may find its roots in an era less advanced than our own, but with “haven’t we come far” serving essentially as both the film’s plot and its only joke, any sense of modern sophistication soon gets old fast. After all, if the prospect of an overweight Italian lady bursting into operatic song whilst climaxing on a doctor’s table can be billed as the peak of 21st Century hilarity, it seems society still has a long way to go.
After a long and challenging week it’s finally Friday. The weekend is nigh and it’s the perfect time to indulge in a good old drinking game. But this is not just any old drinking game.

You all know what it’s like. You’re sitting in the cinema or watching a film at home and you see someone you recognise on screen. Turning to the person next to you, you ask: “who is that guy? He’s in that thing, you know, that other movie…WHAT IS HIS NAME? TELL MEEEEE!!!” Eventually you then find out who he is…and have forgotten by the next day. Well, we here at Best For Film are like elephants and we could never, EVER forget a great actor. Except from what’s his name…Oh you know, that guy who is in that other thing? Never mind…
Say what you see, eh?
Released in 2005, the original Nanny McPhee was a strong successor to Mary Poppins in every way. Adapted from the Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand, the film pitted seven mischievous tykes against an ugly woman with a snaggle tooth, warts and an oversized nose, who had a few tricks up her sleeve when it came to childcare. Susanna White’s colourful sequel casts an even more bewitching spell, introducing the mysterious nanny to a family in crisis in wartime Britain.
