Total Film #173 and other stuff wot I’ve done

October 2, 2010 by Simon Kinnear in On Tour with 1 Comment

New issue of Total Film is out now.  Choice of Harry Potter covers in the shops, although the coolest one is the subscribers’ copy, featuring the faces of the mag’s Facebook followers.  In lieu of my own ugly mug, I sent the angelic features of my 2-year-old son, which crops up (at least) three times in the mosaic.

That’s not all, as I’ve also got the lead Blu-ray review on the stupendous Alien Anthology – to the best of my knowledge, it’s the first print review of the set, so I’m well chuffed.

Plus capsule reviews of 50s crime thriller Compulsion, Vanilla Ice star vehicle Cool as Ice, 60s-to-90s sci-fi adaptation Lost in Space and a duo of French swashbucklers, D’Artagnan’s Daughter and Le Bossu.  One of these five films becomes my very first 1-star review.  Can you guess which one?

Here, also, is my customary round-up of the last month’s features I’ve written for the Total Film website.  Bizarrely, one of these – the plot holes one – got recommended by in its weekly e-bulletin.  That alone must class as a whole sixty-seconds out of my alloted fifteen minutes of fame.  One down, fourteen to go.

    I may or may not have had something to do with it appearing on MoneySavingExpert.

    OK I didn't. But Mrs The Incredible Suit did.
