Friday One Sheet: MANK (Again)

In our delight at the chiaroscuro and typeface, this column previously highlighted the 'fan art' poster for David Fincher's new film, Mank. But here, Netflix has released a joyfully bacchanal, hand-drawn official key art.  This poster gives you the man,...

Friday One Sheet: MANK and the Fake Criterion

The films of David Fincher never let a typeface or design opportunity go to waste. Considering he is recreating a specific Hollywood era - the production of Orson Welles cinematic milestone and political bombshell, Citizen Kane - with his latest...

70s Rewind: PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, Monsters From The Id Live Among Us

William Finley, Jessica Harper and Paul Williams star in Brian De Palma's gleeful musical horror flick. Plus: How to stream other screen versions of the classic tale.

Destroy All Monsters: Ben Solo Was The Key To The STAR WARS Sequel Trilogy, And JJ Abrams Never Noticed

One of the things I found most compelling about Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi -- which is no short list, so all the cranks and Reddit boys reading this can just skip to social media now -- was how complete...

Pretty Packaging: ROLLERBALL Gets An Ultimate Edition

With streaming being the major platform, DVD and Blu-ray home releases have become a declining market. There will always be collectors though, and distributors willing to cater to them. Countries like France and Germany still release many stunners these days,...

Blu-ray Review: THE WAR OF THE WORLDS Continues to Stun

Out this week from the Criterion Collection comes the 1953 adaptation of the famous H.G. Wells tale, The War of the Worlds, directed by Byron Haskin (The Naked Jungle, The Outer Limits) and produced by George Pal (Houdini, The Time Machine), AP Frank...

Theodore Thomas directed the documentary, now streaming on Disney Plus.

Friday One Sheet: Fire and Matches in UNHINGED

The rather impossible to miss (again, I lament that these things will not hang in movie theatre or multiplex lobbies) pair of orange warning signs for Unhinged makes up for the rather unremarkable original poster. This contemporary, incel-inflected, MAGA take...

Now Streaming: MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL, How the Mighty Have Fallen

Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning return in the sequel to a live-action reboot, directed by Joachim Rønning and now streaming on Disney+.


I hope many of you have been taking the opportunity during the 'stay at home' times we live in to revisit, not just your favourite classic films, but also ones that you may have written off as 'bad' during the...

Friday One Sheet: The Best Posters of 2019

I hope you have enjoyed this column (almost) every Friday for 2019 as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Here is a cumulation of the best posters of the year. They are in no specific order, as they are...

Friday One Sheet: EYES WIDE SHUT @ 20

My favourite Christmas movie turned 20 this year. Stanley Kubrick's final film has taken almost as long to get its due in the popular culture, but I feel it has achieved consensus (more or less) for the final Kubrickian masterwork...
