9780099543497: The Good, The Bad and The Multiplex

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 where Sex and the City 2 was a hit, what are film critics even for?

Outspoken, opinionated and hilariously funny, The Good, The Bad and The Multiplex is a must for anyone who has ever sat in an undermanned, overpriced cinema and wondered: 'How the hell did things get to be this terrible?'
