The Good, the Bad and the Multiplex

by Mark Kermode

Biography / Autobiography eBooks of the Month The Real World

The Good, the Bad and the Multiplex Synopsis

In It's Only a Movie , the incomparable Mark Kermode showed us the weird world of a film critic's life lived in widescreen. Now, in The Good, The Bad and The Multiplex , he takes us into the belly of the beast to ask: 'What's wrong with modern movies?' If blockbusters make money no matter how bad they are, then why not make a good one for a change? How can 3-D be the future of cinema when it's been giving audiences a headache for over a hundred years? Why pay to watch films in cinemas that don't have a projectionist but do have a fast-food stand? And, in a world in which Sex and the City 2 was a hit, what the hell are film critics for

The Good, the Bad and the Multiplex Press Reviews

'Breezy, entertaining . . . he's spot on in pretty much all his critical opinions.' -- Independent on It's Only a Movie

About Mark Kermode

Outspoken, opinionated, and never lost for words, Mark Kermode has carved out a career in print, radio and television based entirely on the belief that The Exorcist is the greatest movie ever made and that the Pirates of the Caribbean films should be buried in a very deep hole where they can never bother anyone ever again.
