The as yet unnamed Prince of Cambridge has been born into a media whirlwind that’s evenly split between slack-jawed cackling over the “future King of England” (mostly from Americans, who have to appropriate our history because they don’t have any of their own) and snide ‘Woman Has Baby’ headlines from people who think they’re above it all but aren’t really. We, on the other hand, just like having an excuse to talk about The Lion King. #linkbait
Disney films are, as we all know, based on inspiring stories of good overcoming evil. Or are they? Think vandalism, self-sacrifice, kidnap, false imprisonment, blackmail and murder. Think regicide. Think false heroes paraded through the world of animation, held up as icons to children too young to know better. But WE know better. And while you might think Maleficent, Captain Hook and the numerous Wicked Stepmothers are the bad guys of Disney, you’re sorely mistaken.
It’s time to take a long hard look at the top 10 real Disney villains – and, this time around, they’re paying for their crimes…
Prince Harry has been papped cupping his Crown Jewels in Las Vegas. Kate Middleton has been photographed showing off her Queenly wares in France. Prince William has… well, he hasn’t really done anything interesting. Apart from lose his hair. In short, the Royals have wandered over to the dark side and, to celebrate their rebellion, we’ve decided to take a (potentially NSFW) look back over some of the baddest, most naked, most scandalous royals ever to grace the silver screen.
Have you been known to use your bodacious bootay to get what you want? Do you often declare yourself to be ‘like a god’? Have you ever seen your dead father in the stars and done exactly what ‘he’ told you? Do you sleep a lot? Then this post is for you. You see, for decades now, the Walt Disney Corp. has secretly been presenting real psychological ailments as cutesy personality traits (read: disorders) that should not only be encouraged, but put to catchy tunes complete with a key change. But never fear, BFF is here; from your Stockholm Syndrome to drug dependency, we’ve got the answers FRANK just can’t give you.
Because we don’t like you to try new things without our express permission, we took it upon ourselves to give the Pyjama Party: Dance Edition at the cushy Prince Charles Cinema a whirl – six films, ten hours, millions of jazz hands. With booze. And a onesie. Under the dictionary definition of “a good time”, you will find a picture of us attempting the Dirty Dancing lift, at 6am, blind drunk.
Last week an utterly baffling argument concerning the political leanings of The Muppets exploded onto the screens of bored internet surfers everywhere. Fox executive Eric Bolling cried foul play against the fluffy activists’ poisonous left-wing leanings, suggesting that apparently anti-capitalist puppets couldn’t help but influence the minds of our most impressionable generation.The world responded with derision, and rightly so. But no matter the catalyst, it’s a question worth asking – what message are our kids getting from our current cinematic output?
Did you know that The Lion King 3D will be hitting cinemas nationwide on the 7th October. And did you know that Jurassic Park is returning to the silver screen this Friday? Did you get that? JURASSIC PARK is returning to the silver screen on FRIDAY! We here at BFF couldn’t be any more excited and, to celebrate the rekindling of our love affair with dinosaurs (dinosaurs, in this case, meaning OLD movies) we’ve compiled a list of the Top 20 films we want to see back on the big screen…
Everybody at some point in their life has had a boss so dreadful that, if given the chance, you really would consider subjecting them to some kind of Saw or Final Destination-esque torture.
