Turns out, he isn’t a wooden actor. We have discovered a little known fact- KEANU REEVES IS MADE OF WOOD! It explains everything, from Bill and Ted to The Matrix and beyond. But wait. We haven’t answered the burning question. Just what sort of wood is Reeves carved from? Read on to discover more…
This week, we look at funny man Owen Wilson. Is he laugh out loud brilliant, or an irritating, over-rated lad in need of a nose job? Should he and the rest of the ‘Frat Pack’ stop hurting our eyes and affronting our senses, or do they deserve awards for out of the box originality? The defence and prosecution have their say.
Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema at the BAFTA awards to going to everyone’s favourite guilty pleasure- the Harry Potter films. We decided to celebrate this achievement by taking a trip down memory lane and working out what was so good, which bits were so bad and what on earth some of it was all about.
Is Harrison Ford a grumpy dull bore with a flabby face or an action supremo in need of some Oscars? It seems here at Best For Film we fall into two camps- those that love, those that hate. Read on for a fully fledged, sort of educated rant and let us know who you agree with.
Children’s films are at an all time popularity high, with Pixar, Dreamworks, Disney and many more rolling out animated films aimed at adults and kids alike. So here at Best For Film, we thought we would help them out by suggesting a few adaptations we would like to see on the big screen.
How to stop The Lord of the Rings prequels (aka The Hobbit parts One and Two) ending up as vastly mind numbingly awful as the Star Wars prequels, with a little help from George Lucas. Peter Jackson be warned- dwarfs, spaceships and politics just do not mix!
Actors are a busy lot. All the research, workshopping, meetings, studio time, press releases, premiere events, Oscar screenings and after parties must get exhausting. And that’s just for one film. But, there are some go-getting young gunslingers in the acting community who want to go the extra mile and really get involved with the world outside the film industry. And here they are. A list of my favourite actors who want to make a difference.
As part of the Sci-Fi-London OktoberFest, The Royal Observatory in Greenwich put on a super special event investigation all things extra-terrestrial. There were masked mutants at every entrance, an alien adventure game and a tour of space from the amazing planetarium. Plus, a special screening of Gareth Edward’s low budget, sci-fi film Monsters finished off the universal evening. Nice.
I’ll never know what made the mysterious Banksy make a pretty accesible opening sequence for The Simpsons but gosh dammit, I wish I could. With his anti-agendas, why hook up with “The Man”? Yes, artists are allowed to get involved in other stuff but all I can say is “Keep It Real”. It’s on. Banksy vs Dali.
Here at Best For Film, we want you to be prepared. Halloween comes but once a year, creeping up on you whilst you are distracted by the changing weather and the slow realisation that it’s not acceptable to wander around in your bikini because SUMMER IS OVER. And we would hate for you to miss out on super cool Halloween things due to a lack of preparation. So here it is, champs; a list of Halloween film events for you and me and all to share.
