The Magazine: EMPIRE #196
The Pitch: The biggest and best movie magazine in the world. Made in the UK. Huge. That’s all you need to know.
The Cost: $8.99
The Month: October
The Publisher: Same
Cover Story: King Kong
Main Interview: Sean Penn
- Dangerously good and often accurate reviews section and they dish out a lot less five star ratings than before.
- Nice Kong coverage.
- Summer preview. Great.
- The second best coverage for The Amityville Horror around!
- The Sydney Pollack retrospective is brilliant.
- Wonderful supplement on Gangster Cinema.
- As if Craven vs. Cronenberg is a fight even worth considering. It’d be like asking if one liked deadly punches to the facemeat or ice cream.
- A rather poor Public Access column with Matthew McConaughey.
An outstanding issue. One of the best in recent memory.
