Radio Times 13-19 March 2010

The Radio Times' film guide continues its slide into ludicrous irrelevancy this issue -- as if awarding the widely-exalted The Dark Knight a meagre three stars wasn't bad enough, they've given the exact same score to the widely-derided Lesbian Vampire Killers. Seriously.

They even seem to have realised it's all gone awry: the film section used to boast full reviews of every film on terrestrial TV, plus many digital ones too; for the past few months, it's been much shorter and abandoned such a thorough review output. As we can see, they're right to have lost faith in it.


Thurman film takes £88 at UK box office by Simon Reynolds
(from Digital Spy)
"Its total takings for Sunday were £9, meaning only one person paid to see the movie on that day."
Oh dear.
