Pedro Almodóvar’s new film Los Amantes Pasajeros, or I’m So Excited to us English-speaking jerks, is officially out in cinemas everyone! It’s obviously going to be totally weird because it’s by Pedro Almodóvar. Did you guys see that movie, The Skin I Live In? WHAT WAS THAT? Anyway, this film is more or less The Skin I Live In On a Plane. More importantly, though, the film shares its English title with a very famous song by The Pointer Sisters, which got us thinking: what other films out there have famous songs for titles? Turns out, loads. Because nothing in this wretched world is original.
God, things are sexy, aren’t they? So many things that there are, and all of them sexy. Baths, cooking, pithy conversations in a descending elevator – all you need is Anne Hathaway, some improbably witty back and forth with a chiselled titaniMAN, and boom – fruitful flesh-grappling is in the air. Except, of course, that it never is. Not really.
While more and more employees of News of the World are set to be detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure, we’ve been making a list of all the people we think should be locked up. Like Rebekah Brooks, these sly foxes have gotten away with it somehow (although unlike Rebekah Brooks, they are all fictional characters in movies). It’s time we put the world to rights and take matters into our own hands – all rise for the court of long-ignored crimes.
We all like to pretend we have a sense of style, but if we’re honest all we really have is the swooning emulation of creatures we think are well awesome. We present our top 10 fashion icons of the film world, celebrating the trendsetters that forced us into the converse-and-pearls universe we inhabit today. Look on them, lowly mortals, and weep at how attractive you’re never going to be.
White shutters. Dry-cleaned clothes. Fresh flowers. A massive apartment in downtown New York. Nothing wrong with any of these things, except when the girl in the film is meant to be a dogwalker. These be the disgusting tales that chick flicks weave with their nail polished fingers, and we are all victims of their beautiful lies.
You might not have been there, you might be going soon- either way, here at Best For Film we thought we would compile the best and most iconic movies from four of the biggest cities in the USA.

Are you going to be forced to watch something insipid, dreadful and probably excessively Katherine Heigl-based this Valentine’s Day? Stretching your grimacing muscles in preparation for the inevitable “run to the airport/run to the wedding/run to where they’re trying on clothes” scene? Fear not! We’ve come up with a foolproof strategy to get you watching absolute classics this V-day. Read on, oh those who fear the pink DVD box…
Everybody loves a freebie. Just ask Janet Jackson and Luther Vandross. And whilst I wouldn’t say that ALL of the best things in life are free, The Scoop is offering something truly great. Outside film screenings. And I’ve got the windswept hair to prove it. So forget about the rubbish giveaways; like flyers through your letterbox, a dress ten sizes too small that your pal gave you because she lost weight, or the free drink that ain’t alcohol (yeah thanks) because this is GOOD stuff!!
Over the next couple of months, cinema-going Londoners won’t be able to move for all the exciting events and festivals cropping up on their doorstep. We’ve sifted through the bad, the ugly and that odd Japanese thing in Brick Lane to bring you the very best of what’s happening over the next month and a bit. These are the filmtastic treats we’re most looking forward to…
For those who can’t quite face the horrors of watching Valentine’s Day on Valentine’s Day, you’ll be glad to know that another option is at hand. Pretty Woman is getting a limited re-release on Valentine’s Day, celebrating 21 years (21 years?!) of moulding women into whatever you want them to be.
