Who We Are…
From independent and world cinema to the latest Hollywood blockbusters and ‘geek’ culture, Flickering Myth covers all aspects of the movie, TV, comic book and video game industries with news, reviews, trailers, interviews, articles, opinions and more.
Here at Flickering Myth, we value movies as much as we do films. We’re the product of Ghostbusters double bills and academic Film Studies. We believe it possible to enjoy both Star Wars and La Règle du Jeu equally, though maybe in different capacities. Simply put, we love cinema, in both its commercial and intellectual pursuits.
Please feel free to comment on any of the posts – discussion is most welcome!
