Top 20 Greatest Ever Comic Book Movies
Top 20 Greatest Ever Comic Book Films: Matt Reeves’ The Batman was one of the most hotly anticipated 2022 releases, sporting a fan-favourite cast, extended runtime and a perfectly dark tone if the trailers are anything to go by. Worlds apart from 1966’s Batman: The Movie, the dark knight has adopted (no pun intended) a far more complex persona, with subsequent iterations skirting increasingly closer to a fractured psyche; one which matches his backstory and the life of a vigilante in Gotham, ...
John Waters talks Liarmouth (The FH Interview)
“Filth elder” John Waters has a new book out, Liarmouth. With a show coming up on 10 June in London at the Barbican and the long-awaited UK uncut home video release of Pink Flamingos coming on Blu-Ray from the Criterion Collection, FilmHounds Writer Ian Schultz gave Waters a call at home in Baltimore. The conversation ended up taking up everything from writing during Covid to his opinions on the Depp-Heard case to the recent cult oddity Butt Boy.

Rish Shah Talks Ms. Marvel (The FH Interview)
As soon as one Marvel TV show ends on Disney+ we’re instantly thrown straight back into the MCU with another one arriving not long after. Their latest show Ms. Marvel arrives on June 8th and introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels invisible both at home and at school—that is, until s...

Documentarian Klaartje Quirjins talks Your Mum and Dad (The FH Interview)
Dutch documentary filmmaker Klaartje Quirjins has made a remarkable film, a documentary she has worked on for seventeen years that saw her record Dr Michael Maskowitz’ therapy sessions with world renowned freudian psychologist Dr Kirkland Vaughan. In the process Quirjins was compelled to turn the camera onto herself and her strained relationship with her mother and her non-existent relationship with her father, and try to understand how the death of her older sister at age six affected them a...
Operation Mincemeat (Film Review)
Telling a war story from behind a desk is always going to be one that’s hard to make entertaining on screen. Operation Mincemeat is a lot more like The Courier in the sense that it tells an interesting spy story with high stakes but set in an area that is far less cinematic than being on the field.
Operation Mincemeat often feels like it’s trying to be a heist film. A great amount of the film is dedicated to setting up the titular deception and every character has their role within the group....

Pale Flower (Film Review)
Pale Flower is a seemingly lesser known example of the Japanese New Wave of the 1960s directed by Masahiro Shinoda. In it we see Muraki, a tough Yakuza henchman, leaving prison after a frightfully short sentence of three years for the murder of a fellow gang member. He returns to Tokyo where he reconnects with his former bosses and makes new friends and lovers along the way. Sadly though, the dark world of organised crime catches up to him and he has to make life changing decisions in order t...
