Arriving on the same day, Interzone #256 has my regular column, 'Laser Fodder', of DVD & blu-ray reviews, including:

Pleased to note how my rambling editorial rant about spoiler-mania chimes in - well, sort of, anyway! - with Jonathan McCalmont's excellent 'Future Interrupted' column of telling comments about the Allure of Ambiguity. Whether considering books or movies, it seems we're both thinking about the importance of interpretations.
