DO YOU REMEMBER the first time you saw Pulp Fiction? I sure do. Schoolie’s Week 1994, somewhere in Queensland. (Yes, I’m aware that several thousand sordid anecdotes from bogans Australia-wide begin with those exact same words.) Out of the dozen or so school friends who were away with me for a relaxing week of drinking tinnies in a squalid flat and not much else, not a single one was interested in attending the local cinema on opening day to see Pulp Fiction. Not. One. (This is even after I showed several of them a VHS of Reservoir Dogs at my parents place a few years earlier. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them wade in the gallons of fake blood with a side order of severed…

EMPIRE: MIND-READERS In the words of the old Warner Brothers cartoons’ pint-sized gangster Rocky, “I dunno how yaz dunnit, but I know yaz dunnit!” You read my mind. How you managed to put articles on so many of my favourite subjects into a single issue defies modern, or even ancient science. Tarantino.Avengers: Endgame. Spidey. Peter Jackson. Dark Phoenix. The Blair Witch Project. Tolkien. Scorsese. American Werewolf. Can... can you actually see me right now? Wait, how many fingers am I holding up? Whoah. Damn you’re good. You can bet a six-pack of choc tops I’ll be renewing my subscription. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you? RAY MILCZARSKI, HAMILTON VIC You bet we did. We even know that you’re reading a copy of Empire AT THIS PRECISE MOMENT. ACE GRANDMA I just moved back…

letter of the month

I wanted to say thank you to Eloise for politely and articulately responding to Daniel (‘Don’t Drop The Politics’ in ‘Comment’, Empire June issue). I had to give up after several drafts of unpublishable expletive-riddled angry-ness. I absolutely love the inane, but I think there’d be few in the business of making film who didn’t want us arguing about their creations beyond the technical. If they have ‘human’ players they are political – the word comes from ‘polis’ = city / ‘polites’ = citizen: if it’s about us, it’s political. If someone doesn’t say something that pisses me off each and every month I feel ripped off – keep it up... sometimes you actually change my mind. ANN STUHT, VIA EMAIL Thanks for your articulate response, Ann (although we kinda wish we…

could she terminate a terminator?

JAMES CAMERON’S FIRST two Terminator films both rested upon the shoulders of a powerful female hero. But even the black-clad paramilitary Sarah Connor of T2 couldn’t hope to go punch-for-punch with a Terminator and come out on top. That all changes in Dark Fate, with the arrival of Mackenzie Davis’ Grace. “She’s been specially enhanced to fight Terminators,” explains director Tim Miller. “In the movie’s first big action sequence she’s just beating the living fuck out of him with a sledgehammer. It’s great!” Last seen changing nappies and downing shots in Tully, Mackenzie Davis’ latest role is a million miles from Jason Reitman’s super nanny. As a battle-worn fighter she’s all muscle and menace: a saviour from the future who’s neither human nor Terminator but somewhere in-between. “Mackenzie is fantastic,” says…

peggy carter is captain america?!

IN THE LATEST trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home (out 1 July), Nick Fury casually drops a bombshell: new pal/ potential villain Mysterio has come from another dimension. And while much of what Mysterio claims should be taken with a rather large pinch of salt, it seems to confirm a longstanding rumour: the MCU now exists in a multiverse. A long-established feature of Marvel comics, the ramifications for the MCU are huge, and far-reaching. Infinite universes mean infinite possibilities; nothing is off the table. So what is on the table, then? SPIDER-WOMAN — AND MORE! The thing about multiverses, as illustrated neatly by Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, is that it gives you options. What if Gwen Stacy were bitten instead of Peter Parker? Or Aunt May? (Aka — seriously — Spider-Ma’am). What…
