    In It's Only a Movie, the incomparable Mark Kermode took us into the weird world of a film critic's life lived in widescreen. Now, The Good, The Bad and the Multiplex takes us into the belly of the beast to ask: 'What’s wrong with the modern movie business – and how can we make it right?'

    John says: "Kermodian Moonshine, Wittertainment distilled."

    Story

    If your a fan of the show, or like me a regular podcast listener, I couldn't see why you wouldn't love this. Sure many of the arguments and their supporting anecdotes and statistics have been voiced over the last year on the show, but there's more here. Like the curmudgeonly retelling of a visit to a Multiplex, attending "Blazing Saddles" dressed like Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver and in light of SOPA et al the figures to give a moment to pause next time your hear/read the 'poor us' stories of the Entertainment MegaCorporations. Being read by Mr Kermode himself is a huge benefit, it's like listening to the show. A nice long rant that had to be told by a man who clearly loves his movies.
