In November 2014 we ran a competition to give away one copy of Mark Kermode's book "The Good, The Bad and the Multiplex" alongside a one-off Midlands Movies t-shirt!


As one of our favourite movie critics BBC Radio Five Live and Observer legend Mark Kermode's opinions can be scathing and whilst we don't always agree with his viewpoints, Kermode has carved out a career as the UK's most formidable film guru.
