"Other Worlds Than These" episode 028.

028: Entertainment Weekly magazine.

I might get flack for recommending Entertainment Weekly. The magazine devotes too many column inches to gossip and reality TV, and the EW music critics are not to be trusted. On top of all that, some argue that weekly publications are irrelevant, as they can't keep up with the 24/7 news cycle like the web.

But EW's "old media" status allows its writers more access than movie news sites and blogs, especially where big studio flicks are concerned. If you're looking for indie or genre film news, the web is a great source. If you're looking for an in-depth exclusive story with lots of glossy photos about... say this summer's Iron Man, EW is worth a look.

One more thing: EW subscriptions are crazy cheap--like 50 cents per issue.
