Empire Magazine UK

Once upon a time, not that long ago (at least not for a lady of my age), Empire was a film magazine, and a good one at that.

For some obscure reason - most likely related to sales - it has now evolved (or regressed?) into a boys' film magazine, recognizable by the male action figures on the cover, the unconditional disdain of all so-called 'chick-flicks' and the numerous pages dedicated to game-reviews.

The articles remain exhaustive and knowledgeable, but I find this view of hormones governing taste in film somewhat simplistic.
