General Comments
Empire is a great magazine and I think Empire reviews are the best if you want to get the inside track on the movie business.

The best bits include some of the superb interviews which are regularly featured, as well as the Hollywood movie news and previews. Empire reviews are this magazine's bread and butter and while I regularly disagree vehemently with them, I like to read them as they are always well constructed and offer a decent argument. However they often get it wrong and I have lost count of the amount of times I've seen decent films given 2 stars and complete dross awarded with a 4 star review. In fairness, they do admit when they get it wrong - Attack of The Clones or Alexander anyone???

Now onto the shortfalls. There are some lazy features, such as The Top 100 this or The Top 100 that, it starts to look like Channel Four on a Saturday night. The DVD section is also way too big and another easy way to fill pages, it should be much more concise and the space it takes up should be used to showcase more original material.

All in all though, a stonking magazine, the best around by a mile and one which you should give a try!
