The long-awaited reboot of the Tomb Raider games sees Lara Croft returning as a globe-trotting student, who gets washed up on a hostile island after a shipwreck. She’s flawed. She’s feisty. She’s BOUND to get her own movie – but which actress has got the guts to take on such an iconic character? Outta the way Angelina Jolie, here’s the top 10 actresses we actually WANT to take on Tomb Raider…
Oz: the Great and Powerful, the prequel to 1939’s The Wizard of Oz that everyone has been clamouring for these past 70-odd years (ahem), is most surprising in that it’s nowhere near the mess it promised to be. Luridly colourful and garish, but filled with likable performances and some excellent 3D. But while it may not be a total mess, but that’s not to say that it isn’t still wildly inconsistent at times.
And your little dog too!
He’ll be hunted by the Queen of the Universe, which makes us think that Brian May might be involved
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.
We’ll be the judges of a film’s greatness and power thank you very much.
Is that Emma Stone I see before me? Oh no, wait. It’s Mila Kunis, Stone’s more Ukranian lookalike. You have to admit that these two girls are pretty similar (we won’t say who we think is better…Stone…) and yet so different in many ways. Mila Kunis is actually a good-ish actress, she clearly has a sense of humour and seems like a pretty nice gal. But where did this young minx spring up from? Mila Kunis seems to have cemented herself firmly into Hollywood these days and has taken over from other young starlets as the number one go to person for sex appeal. Whilst this is normally a cause for instant dislike we are for some reason oddly drawn to Mila. Come with us on a magical journey into Mila Kunis. Into Mila Kunis’ WORLD. Sorry, we got a little carried away there. Mila Kunis’ world…
Everybody has a childhood toy that they loved. Some of you may still have yours at home somewhere, loved so much that fur has worn off, eyes are missing and heads are dangling by a thread like some kind of Anne Boleyn mess. But what if your Teddy was alive, what then? Well, you would probably be sitting around smoking dope with him and chatting about sex. Or so Seth McFarlane would have you believe anyway. Ted is a fuzzy rom-com which starts the right way but is ultimately more fluffy than it is funny.
