To celebrate the upcoming release of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, complete with Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as a ridiculously attractive (and probably incestuous) witch-busting brother and sister duo, we’ve decided to take a look at the top 10 fairytales which DESERVE to be made into films. For the good of all of us…
There’s going to be a Fifty Shades Of Grey film. We all KNOW this. We can’t, despite everything we’ve tried, stop it from happening. So, if it must happen, let’s talk casting – anyone else fancy Charlie Sheen for the role of Christian Grey? Here are our top 10 casting choices for the BDSM bonkbuster…
Best For Film are a patriotic bunch (well, most of us are, at least) so we aren’t about to let some upstart American in a rodent mask and cape make us forget about British hero 007. Here are the top 10 reasons why we think that James Bond is far superior to Batman… or not, as the case may be.
There’s only one villain who has really been the salsa on the Old El Batman enchilada, and that’s the Joker.

Have you ever felt you were watching an actor play the same character he has played a million times before? Here at Best For Film, we are tired of watching characters phone in the same predictable performances for an easy paycheck.
