The British have always had a massive love affair with movies and have produced numerous magazines on the subject since the days of Pictures and the Picturegoer, Picture Show, Photoplay, Film Review and Cinema X. There are still a lot of movie mags available in mainstream stores and newsagents but most of these are either empty-headed glossies covering new releases (Empire, Total Film) or overly serious publications that can sometimes feel a little inaccessible to the casual (or even the fanatical) film fan ( Little White Lies, So Film). So I was more than a little excited to hear that husband and wife writing team Dawn and Jonathon Dabell had decided to publish their very own movie magazine using many of the cast and crew from exemplary genre publications Space Monsters and We Belong Dead!
Multitude Of Movies (or MoM for short) is a magazine created by film lovers (and married couple) Dawn and Jonathon Dabell. It is a quarterly publication, which aims to celebrate and review movies from any language, genre and era. Each issue is full of retrospective reviews and articles about films, as well as specially commissioned artwork, overviews of actors, actresses, directors, etc.
First and foremost it is a magazine By movie lovers For movie lovers. Writers and artists from all corners of the globe contribute to it, discussing films you love, films you hate,films you’ve seen many times and films you’ve never even heard of. The aim of the mag, above all else, is to talk film and it’s put together with love and dedication to the cinematic art-form.
The magazine is available in a print format as well as digital. The print edition obviously gives you that wonderful sensation of having a real magazine in your hands and in years to come when it becomes collectible you’ll have a potentially valuable hard copy in your possession. But of course the interior is black and white. The advantage of the digital edition is that it is full colour throughout and is delivered to your PC in seconds. Either way Dawn and Jonathon hope you get hold of a copy of this exciting magazine and get great joy from its pages for many years to come!
And if you happen to be in the city of Brighton in the UK then pop into Cosmo’s Toys & Collectibles as they are the ONLY shop in Brighton to sell this excellent film magazine (along with Space Monsters, We Belong Dead, Monster Mag and the Official Caroline Munro Poster Magazine)!
