Instagram is a way of life nowadays. Launched in October 2010 by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, it soon became gobbled up by what is now one of the biggest businesses on the planet: Facebook.
Since launching our own Instagram in 2017, we’ve come to realise just how much of an important tool it is for bloggers looking to build their reach and expand through a visual medium. And while cinemas are still closed across the majority of the world, we thought we’d create a list of our favourite movie-related Instagram accounts to follow during these uncertain times.
These accounts have been picked due to the quality of their content, the frequency of posting and just the general community vibe that they give out on Instagram. Shall we dive in? Continue reading →
If you’ve been following current affairs recently, you’ll be well aware of the turmoil unfolding before our eyes. The coronavirus pandemic is one that has instilled fear into the minds of people across the globe, with over 1.5million cases and 90,000 deaths worldwide.
For us film fans, now more than ever can we rely on the medium to transport us away from the sadness going on outside, and take us to fantasy worlds with some of our favourite characters. With over half of the world’s population is under lockdown (an unprecedented statistic in the modern day in itself), now is the time to dust off those old VHS tapes, DVDs and blu-rays and watch as many films as possible.

Foreword by Adam Brannon: it’s fair to say that the world is going through troubling times, and where many of us would find solace at the cinema, we are no longer able to do that. I’m sure, like me, many of you are feeling anxious about the months ahead, but we will get through this.
With that in mind, we’re trying to up the content on Movie Metropolis as much as possible, giving you interesting content to read, digest and share with your peers. We’re starting with a fantastic interview from writer/director Yesser Laham, who’s film Landfillstars The Exorcist’s Linda Blair. Read on to find out more about his incredible career.

I’ve lived a lot of places, and therefore, I’ve met a lot of people with different birthdays. I know someone that turned 18, and celebrated by seeing Avengers: Endgameon its opening night. I also know people that got to see movies like Knives Out, Toy Story 3, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And what was I so lucky to get for my birthday? None other than the new Tiffany Hadish and Rose Byrne film, Like a Boss.
This is a film with some people that have shown they are funny in the past, Salma Hayek in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Rose Byrne in Instant Family, and Tiffany Haddish in [no movies found], so the fact that this movie would be garbage wasn’t a given.
However, shocking everyone in the cinema landscape, Like a Boss is one of the worst films of the year. I know the year is still early, but seriously, I can’t imagine it leaving the bottom five, even with the sequel to After coming out soon. So, what could make a movie so bad that I declare it one of the years worth with another 48 weeks of movies left to come out? Well, come with me, and I’ll show you a whole world of garbage, with this review of Like a Boss.Continue reading →
Foreword by Adam Brannon. Can you believe we’re here again? Now into its fourth year, the Alternative Oscars has become one of my favourite times of the year, as we put the best films to the test for a shot at winning one of our coveted awards. I’ve always felt like blockbuster movies haven’t received as much recognition as they deserve.
After all, some of these films have been a labour of love for their directors and leading men and women. This year, however, we’re mixing things up a little with an Alternative Oscars of the Decade! Continue reading →
