welcome to total film the smarter movies magazine

Well… that was a weird one, right? When we put together our 2020 preview back in November 2019 we were shiny-eyed and giddy with the prospect of the cinematic glory awaiting us over the next year. Bond! Top Gun: Maverick! Black Widow! Tenet! Dune! And then you-know-what happened… This issue we reflect on a strange year that changed cinema (possibly forever?) and made all of us pivot (and use the word ‘pivot’ about everything) to different ways of watching movies, opening us up to films we may not have otherwise seen and giving us soooo much time at home to catch up on classics and all that TV. We’ve talked to directors making and putting out movies despite the difficulties, and actors who’ve shone, and also rated our top movies/turkeys of…

JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Went on my first ‘virtual’ set visit this month - a strange experience but worked pretty well. Just a shame I couldn’t have the on-set lunch. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Was a pleasure chatting to Christopher Nolan again after having seen Tenet. Going on experience, I’m sure a cup of Earl Grey wasn’t far from reach as we talked. JANE CROWTHER EDITOR-IN-CHIE It was a treat to talk to Sacha Baron Cohen this month. Ever the observer, he was quick to quiz me about where my accent was from, joking that he was a cheap Henry Higgins.…

DEAR WINGMAN A recent Dialogue letter talked about how a soundtrack can be superior to the film. I agree completely. There are some great composers out there whose work, for me can often save a film and enhance your enjoyment of it. To name a few: John Williams (Hook, The Phantom Menace), James Horner (Deep Impact), David Arnold (Godzilla), Alan Silvestri (Van Helsing). Many of these films were panned but I really liked viewing them for their scores. Anyone else agree? Or have other suggestions? ADAMSCHOFIELD, LEEDS WINGMAN SAYS... Hear, and if you’ll excuse the pun, hear. Growing up in the VHS era trained Wingman to see with his ears, such was the visual quality that turned every jolly comedy into a shadow-filled film noir, or filled Christopher Reeve’s flight path with lines of…

Over the past couple of years I’ve become disillusioned with film mags, yours included. I’ve felt bombarded by superheroes/Star Wars/summer blockbuster content to the point where I was starting to think it was just me being an old miser in finding it all a bit tedious. Issue 305 was a breath of fresh air; the best you’ve done for a long time, with great interviews and varied content. I understand you probably have a target audience and maybe I just don’t fit any more, but…

it’s a wanda-ful life

A cross the finales of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, a faint sense lingered that Wanda Maximoff remained curiously opaque to us and the characters on-screen. After all, this was a character hit by seismic losses: of her parents, brother, lover. When Thanos claimed to understand her pain, she hit back with, “You could never.” And although she reassured Hawkeye that Natasha Romanoff and Vision knew “we won” (“She knows - they both do”), did we know how Wanda felt behind the comforting words? Well, as she said to Thanos, “You will.” In January, WandaVision will be the first psionic strike from Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series slate, preceding titles including The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel. And if MCU CCO Kevin Feige’s hint…

I’ve been called many things over many lifetimes,” said Oscar Isaac in his last encounter with the Marvel universe. Five years after he terrorised the world as the villain of many names (but mostly the titular one) in X-Men: Apocalypse, Isaac seems set to assume more identities for his Marvel reunion. Isaac has been tipped by Variety to play Marc Spector in Marvel Studios’ TV show Moon Knight, based on the comics about a mercenary with multiple personality disorder who is granted superpowers by the Moon god Khonshu. While Spector wore the personas of cab drivers and millionaires in early iterations, his personalities later included SpiderMan, Wolverine or Captain America. And it’s no small credit to Isaac that you can easily imagine him playing all of them. Whether or not his always…
