The new issue of Total Film is out today, so here be noted the features and reviews you have to read.*

* My criterion for the following selection is simple: these are the words wot I wrote:

– TF Loves GremlinsSnow White sing-a-long (page 170), including exclusive quotes from director Joe Dante

– Is It Just Me? ..or is the Coen brothers’ The Ladykillers underrated? (page 157), an argument that will convince precisely nobody but was fun to write regardless

– Book review – Sean Connery: The Measure of A Man (page 156), a biography “as fascinating but flawed as its subject.”

– Cinema reviews – Mother (page 57), Le Refuge (page 59), Rapt (page 66)…sharing 10 shiny stars between them. [Two of ’em are also available online by clicking the links if you’re too tight to buy the mag.]

– DVD reviews – an unlikely double-bill about kids and their carers in Edinburgh and Tehran – The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and The Apple (both page 148)

Disclaimer: There’s some other stuff in there that comes highly recommended, but you can read those bits after mine, kapisch?
