We are now entering what used to be called the dead days: that is, the days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. It’s traditionally a time for witchery, magic, and mystery- and so, here at BFF we’ve compiled a list of films for each of the dead days, specially designed to bring you all the adventure, magic, mystery and witchery you could possibly want while sitting on the sofa in your Christmas PJs.
HRH the Prince of Wales officially picks up his senior citizen’s bus pass today, and his landmark birthday got us thinking – not about architecture or the environment or how long his mum’s going to live, or whatever else he actually thinks about, but about princes. You can’t go wrong with a prince – all the cachet of being a royal and none of the pressure. Who’s your favourite?
With the news that Arnie’s Terminator just won’t die, we’re looking at our DVD collection to see which of our favourite movies we just want gosh darned left alone. There aren’t many left now; Star Wars is lost, Die Hard’s been beaten into the ground… there are even rumours of a Roger Rabbit sequel in the works, because apparently just nothing is sacred. So here are the top 10 sequels we hope never happen.
Zac Efron must be mad. NO ONE touches Harrison Ford’s stuff!
Jeremy Renner continues to dominate our screens with his endless parade of identical blank-eyed punch-puppet characters, but he’s not the only actor ever to land a knockout roundhouse or stab someone through the eye! Join us for a largely arbitrary run-down of the top 13 fight scenes of all time, as chosen by, well, us. Why do we get to choose? Come a bit closer and say that, you Jessie. D’you like hospital food?
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…
It’s Saturday morning – you’d planned to get up early and make the most of the day, but instead you hid under the covers until quarter to eleven like a shut-in with a passion for snuggliness. You’re such a failure. But never mind – if you’re not going to experience the world first-hand, you can just catch up on the best of the week’s movie news with our regular round-up!
MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA, YOU KILLED MY FATHER, PREPARE oh is it not actually happening? Okay.
Paul WS Anderson has committed the greatest act of cultural rape since Stephenie Meyer thought “Whitby and dogs are all very well, but none of it’s really sparkly enough…”. The Three Musketeers is plagiarised from so many disparate sources that I can scarcely keep up with them – unfortunately, however, Alexandre Dumas’ classic romance isn’t among them. This film is unforgivable.
