There’s only one villain who has really been the salsa on the Old El Batman enchilada, and that’s the Joker. Between Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, that role is all sewn up, and we pray no one ever touches it again. Ever. However, with Tom Hardy’s Bane looking legitimately bed-wettingly scary, we at BFF Towers wondered why so many of Batman’s other enemies didn’t make the cut.

A Tarantino-style Spanish romp which veers wildly between harrowing violence and hilarious gutter-humour, Neon Flesh is by no means a comfortable viewing experience. With a shining cast and a cracking soundtrack, this totally classless 100-minute bloodbath, against the odds, manages to strike just the right note; Neon Flesh is an unusual portrayal of poverty, parenthood and perversion that affects you far more by the end than you thought it would in the beginning.

This Friday, contrary to what you may believe, is a Friday different to any other. Not because it’s Friday the 13th, but because today is the day Harrison Ford turns 70. Yes. Seventy whole years ago on this hallowed day, before Gary Oldman’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy even got a look in, the original badass multi-tasker was born. So come on in and raid our lost ark for your dignity as we raise a glass or seven for the inimitable Indiana Jones in this week’s Friday Drinking Game.
