Despite his lowly socio-economic status, sourpuss demeanour, and complete lack of sartorial refinement, Arthur Dent (Simon Jones) is very much the everyman cousin of sci-fi heroes Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers. Like Flash Gordon before him, Arthur

review by Peter Schilling

"It's amazing what you can do when you don't have to look at yourself in the mirror anymore," says Kevin Bacon's maniacal scientist, threateningly, in this millennial update of the science fictional 'Invisible Man' theme. The witty title is a pun - not just on the quantum shifted mad

With modern filmmaking less about entertainment and more about mass appeal, product placement, and political correctness disguised as carefully structured 'rebellion', no other genre has suffered more than horror. For example, look back to 1972, when Wes Craven unleashed

For those of us who spent the 1970s cringing through dire TV shows and rotten, cheaply produced movies starring portly guys in Lycra, the current crop of superhero movies is like all of our childhood dreams come true. It's seems incredible to think of a time when comics were better than the movies
