Top Ten: Oscar Speeches

The biggest night of the film calendar is almost upon us, and rather than burden you all with yet another predictions post, I thought I would honour the Academy Awards by listing my ten favourite acceptance speeches. The question of ‘what would you say’ is one I often ponder whilst in the shower or on…

Top Ten: Films Of 2013

Here it is, the annual post in which all of my readers determine that I know absolutely nothing about film and tear my choices for the ten best of the year in to pieces. I like what I like, and here be the choices, including some of those inbetweener films at the start of the…

Top Ten: Christmas Movies

With only two weeks to go until the big day, I thought I’d throw my two cents in to the gigantic internet bucket full of articles exclaiming which of the endless reels of Christmas themed films are the best. I’ll admit that around the holidays I tend to watch the familiar comforts of The Sound…

Top Ten: Scary Movies

Horror is a genre that I have rarely visited in adulthood, the majority of my interest and experience coming from the slumber parties and group cinema trips of my childhood and teenage years. It seems fitting on this Hallows’ Eve eve, to share with you the ten films that have scared me the most. I…

Top Ten: Underrated Disney Songs

My original idea for today’s Top Ten was to compile a list of my favourite Disney songs, but then I thought, does the internet really need another article repeating just how good ‘Part Of Your World’, ‘Be Our Guest’, ‘The Bare Necessities’ and ‘A Whole New World’ are? I concluded that it did not, and…

Top Ten: Film Scores

Something a little different this week. Rather than pick ten films to share with you based on cast or theme, I instead present some of the pictures that contain my very favourite musical scores. A film’s music is much more important than some people think, with the composer’s job being to direct the audience’s emotions…

Top Ten: Sporting Movies

So it’s finals weekend at Wimbledon and once again the country has gone slightly mad over a pale, sweaty man whose nationality is decided for the year at roughly six o’clock on Sunday evening, British for a win, Scottish for a loss. As a lover of most sports, I am highly aware that for some…

Top Ten: Movie Sequels

It is an extremely rare cinematic feat when a film sequel is made that matches the quality of it’s predecessor, and an even rarer one when it actually surpasses it’s popularity and acclaim. I’ll be honest, some of the films that have made it on to this top ten list tick neither of those boxes, but…

Top Ten: Kick Ass Chicks In Film

Being a member of the fairer sex myself, nothing pleases me more in a film than a stone cold, face slapping, no shit giving head bitch in charge. Here are ten of the best. 1. Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver: Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection) Simply one of the greatest cinematic characters of all time,…

Top Ten: Movie Musicals

To put it lightly, I’m a bastard for a musical. In fact, whittling this list down to ten may just be the most difficult task I will ever undertake for this blog. There is something about expressing one’s emotions in song that I cannot get enough of. Need directions to the shops? Sing it. Facing…
