You know the kind of movie characters that just get on your nerve so badly, you spend a large part of the film wanting to throw acid/lava all over their possibly smirking faces? Well to clarify exactly who deserves that fate, here are the Top Twenty Most Irritating Movie Characters of All Time Part 1!
Imagine that all that was once gold has turned to rusty iron. Yeah, it’s bad, but most of us have too many responsibilities and not enough in the bank, to just go swanning off for a year. But say if you were an unhappy, attractive American woman with money to spare who longs to “marvel at something”, then you probably wouldn’t find yourself laying about in your pjs, picking fluff out of your bellybutton. Most likely you would go galavanting off into the sunset. Puh-lease. Come back to the real world, Julia Roberts.

You know what we didn’t hear enough about? That Pocahontus film about the blue people, what was it called again? The director made quite a famous film about some boat back in the day, erm… oh dear… Avatar! That’s it! Such a shame that slipped so low under the international radar, eh? Fortunately for us though, it’s getting re-released! No, really.
Hollywood is big business. They spend millions producing top notch blockbuster films, paying big Hollywood stars huge salaries to star in their movies and creating the most impressive CGI effects, all to get us through the door and part with our cash. However, despite all this, we here at Best for Film (just like a MasterCard advert) like nothing more than to pedantically pick out all their mistakes. Priceless! So here is our collection of the best and worst outtakes and bloopers and mistakes in movies.
James Cameron has finally beaten his most worthy nemesis, his past self. Avatar, after weeks and weeks and endless bloomin weeks at the top of the UK and US box offices, has finally overtaken Titanic to become the highest grossing film ever, taking a staggering $1.85 billion worldwide.
