  • Friday Drinking Game #56 – Slapstick!

    This Wednesday heralded the release of the long awaited Three Stooges movie. In honour of this disgustingly momentous occasion we invite you to join us all in a round of slapstick-themed drinks. So grab the nearest bottle of vodka, assemble your Farrelly Brothers and your Charlie Chaplins and hit someone in the head with a plank of wood. It’s time to get seriously brain damaged.

  • Best For Film is having a party

    The very first BFF Presents… is less than a month away – and you’re invited! Join us on July 9th for an evening of murder, mayhem and tombolas as we lift the lid on everything from how to get published to whether BFF writers can drink more than normal people (we definitely can).

  • Top 10 Actor-Directors

    Ben Affleck has become the latest Hollywood actor to split his attention between the front and the back of the camera, and has just scored the ultimate success in film by collected the Best Picture Oscar for Argo. So we at Best for Film decided to take a look at some of the most successful actor-directors down the years to see in whose multi-tasking footsteps he should be following. Here is BFF’s Top 10 Actor-Directors. Enjoy it, punks.

  • Cheat Sheet: Jessica Chastain

    Jessica Chastain has been in over a dozen films in the two years since she appeared on our radar in Take Shelter in 2010. This year she received her second Oscar nomination, for her portrayal of the CIA agent who found Osama Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty. She also won a Golden Globe for the role. This flame-haired beauty continues to impress us as she turns out wonderful performance after wonderful performance. Is there nothing she can’t do?

  • Cheat Sheet: Liev Schreiber

    This week we’re celebrating a man whose mere presence in a film adds an extra star to the rating, as written in BFF’s many by-laws. Starring alongside Toni Collette in this week’s Mental, Liev Schreiber proves himself as reliable as ever, being the best thing about a film that isn’t likely to inspire many ‘the best thing about that…’ conversations. He can do no wrong even when all around him brings new definition to the word. It’s a rare effect to have on films, and we wait with bated breath for the day he finally appears in something genuinely brilliant. For now, cast an eye back and remember why Scream 3 was any good.

  • TGIM! Safar Arab Cinema Festival

    It’s Monday and it’s raining. It’s a fair bet you’re not going to be popping over to Kew Gardens anytime soon so why not take this opportunity to educate yourself on the undiscovered terrains of Arabic cinema? There will be discussions and screenings galore and a daring selection of Arabic film to cut your cinematic tooth on. Thank God it’s Monday!

  • TGIM! London Comedy Film Festival at the BFI

    Monday is no laughing matter. You know what is? Comedy. So though we can’t promise you’ll never have to sit through another Monday (a more ominous promise was never offered), we can at least swear that with this healthy grin-fest, there’s nothing Monday can do to thwart your good mood. TGIM!

  • Friday Drinking Game #33 – Silent Films

    Secretly, we are all a teeny weeny bit Sedatephobic. That’s right; we fear silence. The awkward silence on a first date, the uncomfortably long pause after a joke bombs, the too-silent bedroom as you try to ‘lose yourself in the moment’, the creepy basement… it’s no good denying it. We want to fill silence. Which is why, when treating yourself to a spectacular silent film (in celebration of this week’s hottest release, The Artist), we strongly advise you drink heavily, to ease the tension…

  • The Top 20 Films We Want Back On The Big Screen

    Did you know that The Lion King 3D will be hitting cinemas nationwide on the 7th October. And did you know that Jurassic Park is returning to the silver screen this Friday? Did you get that? JURASSIC PARK is returning to the silver screen on FRIDAY! We here at BFF couldn’t be any more excited and, to celebrate the rekindling of our love affair with dinosaurs (dinosaurs, in this case, meaning OLD movies) we’ve compiled a list of the Top 20 films we want to see back on the big screen…
