This is my second collection of film columns written for the Guardian's Film & Music section. The first collection was of columns first published in 2009; all the columns in the following selection were originally published in 2010. I am hoping it won't occur to you that, instead of coughing up $0.99, you could have gone straight to the Guardian's website to read them all there, but just in case it does, I've been trying to think of all the reasons why you shouldn't mind paying those 99 cents.
Firstly, by buying this ebook it means I have already done all the hunting and gathering for you, and am presenting the raw, bloodied pelts to you here without the distraction of adverts, creative subediting or cuts made necessary by increased advertising or reduced space.
But as a sweetener, I have added to the end of this collection an article about the Alien films, published in British GQ to tie in with the release of Alien 3 in 1992 and not, as far as I know, available anywhere online (unless, of course, somebody has pirated it without my knowledge). It's an overview of the franchise up to that point, rather than a critique, but it does contain a couple of original comments by Sigourney Weaver, to whom I talked on the telephone.
