March BLOCKBUSTER Magazine Out Now! – by Marshall Julius
So thrilled are we by the arrival of March’s BLOCKBUSTER Magazine, like newly-minted dads we’d hand you all cigars, if only that were somehow possible. Instead we’ll just gush about it for a while, starting with the basics: available to download for the iDevice in your hands, it’s awesome and won’t cost you a penny. Now let’s get down to cases…
With Awards Season largely behind us and heaps of fresh BAFTAs, Critics’ Circle Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards, Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, Golden Globes, Razzies and Oscars dispensed to mostly worthy ‘recipients’, we can relax for a few months, take a break from watching film folk thanking God, Harvey Weinstein and their dead parents, and focus until the process begins anew on what actually matters: watching movies.
This month alone there’s so much filmy goodness to enjoy, from Affleck’s awesome Argo to O. Russell’s transcendent Silver Linings Playbook, we’re like kids in a candy store, geeks in a comicbook shop and, according to EU obesity reports, Brits in a chip shop.
Word-wise we’ve covered the bases with reviews of everything filmic and gamey. Swinging by for a chat this month is the artist formerly known as the male end of Bennifer and the artist currently known as Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage. Plus we’ve pulled an interview from the archives to pay tribute to our old friend Richard Briers. Elsewhere we pay tribute to the maddest mums the movies ever saw and look ahead to the top ten most exciting sci fi and fantasy films of 2013.
For lovers of less passive digital entertainment, we set our sights this ish on everything from impending DC slugger Injustice: Gods Among Us to scorching sci fi blast-‘em-up Gears of War: Judgment. Plus we’ve the skinny on the next gen of console fun from Sony and Microsoft.
You’d best get downloading then, and crack out your swiping finger because these pages aren’t going to read themselves. Unless you have an app for that, of course.
