Girls star Adam Driver has publicly denied that he’ll be playing Nightwing (formerly Robin; Dick Grayson to his mates) in Batman and Superman Go Large, or whatever it’s going to be called. But if not Driver, then whom? We’ve come up with a few ideas.
Remember how good Buffy was? And Firefly and Serenity? And Angel? And Firefly? DO YOU REMEMBER? DO YOU? Here at BFF we remember because, much like elephants well-versed in the art of watching films and TV shows and writing nonsense about them, WE NEVER FORGET ABOUT THOSE FILMS AND TV SHOWS. To cut a long story very short (because we’re all wetting ourselves over the release of Cabin in the Woods and need to get to the toilet pronto) we bring you a Top Ten list that would make even Terrence Malick quake in his hermit boots. So here, take these words and read them knowing there’s no way you will ever be as good a person as Joss Whedon. Oh, and, we should probably say….SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.
All singing, all dancing, all ridiculously charming – Neil Patrick Harris is back on the big screen this week as… well… Neil Patrick Harris in A Very Harold And Kumar 3D Christmas. But what else is there to know about the quick-witted, eminently well dressed pseudo-womaniser? Did someone say PRESIDENT OF THE ACADEMY OF MAGICAL ART? That’s right.
The third film in the Harold & Kumar franchise is – as expected – a mad, offensive, gross-out, hilarious piece of festive tat, sending up pretty much everything it can get its mucky paws on. It’s perhaps not as funny and boundary-pushing as the first two films, but its soft, creamy centre and winning performances from its leads make it impossible not to enjoy.
SMURF SMURF SMURF SMURF
The Smurfs 3D attempts to tackle the ultimate question: what DO you do when cuddly blue money-spinners get lodged in your toilet? It turns out the answer is: get self-referential, mother SMURFERS. Harmless, silly fun along the lines of Elf and Enchanted, Smurfs 3D does a fair job of appealing to humans big and small – but it does feel like everyone’s aware that this is fluff and nothing more. Nothing smurf? Smurfing more? You’ll pick it up.
