This Wednesday marks the release of Steven “I’m definitely going to stop being a director soon and paint pretty pictures” Soderbergh’s new film, Haywire, which stars Mixed Martial Arts champion Gina Carano. Presumably she spends the film going around beating up loads and loads of people with her martial arts skills. We literally can’t wait for that. Especially if she roundhouse kicks Ewan McGregor in the face. Anyways, to celebrate the release of this film, BFF has compiled a list of the top ten women who would kick you into next Tuesday if you tried to hold the door open for them. Enjoy!
So you’re a character in a film. Congratulations! And you’re about to meet your onscreen death. Ah, not so great. Still, you’ve got time to say a single line. A line that has the chance to be immortalised in cinema history. A line that will be quoted time and time again by pop culture nerds in bad accents. What do you say? Well, let’s look at some of the all-time greats for a bit of inspiration.
(SPOILERS SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY SPOILERS)
“Tease me, tease me, tease me, tease me baby.” Enough of cheesy lyrics from old (but well loved songs), teaser trailers are awesome right? The best ones give you inkling of the film without spoiling it, they set the mood and make you excited for awesomeness (or rubbishness) that’s about to come. After Fincher’s latest teaser for the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we thought we’d offer up a list of the best teasers we’ve seen.
Film classification has come a long way since a Birth of a Nation was banned in several American cities in 1915. However, with recent decisions bringing censorship back into the spotlight, it begs the question of whether it’s still relevant or tenable in its current form.
Mothers are hard enough to buy for, their assurances that they don’t want anything at all only serving the necessity to get something unforgettable. At Best For Film, we know that you probably bought her Mamma Mia! last year, and, as a result, have endeavoured to inspire you indirectly with a list of gift ideas for cinema’s most unforgettable mothers.
It’s 2018: Battle-weary members of the human resistance are rising up against killer machines, desperate to claw back the arid, devestated nuclear wasteland that used to be (fanfare!) the U.S. of goddamn A. Why on earth they’re actually that bothered about fighting for some half-yard of radioactive cinder is anyone’s guess. Everyone’ll be living on Jupiter in 2018.
