Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

Welcome to Multiplex: Deleted Scenes!

Multiplex: Deleted Scenes is a new blog I’ll be officially launching soon. (Up to this point, I’ve just been testing out the design, so the archive only has old reviews, comics and sketches you may already have seen elsewhere.)

I hope to post more comics (both Multiplex-related and not), drawings/sketches and movie reviews a couple times a week. It’s called “Deleted Scenes” for a reason: any strips with the Multiplex cast here will be non-continuity or out-of-continuity. A few might find their way into one of the Chapter eBooks at a later date — but I hope to also have some fun breaking all of the “rules of Multiplex” I’ve established over the past five years. Stuff kind of like the Kurt Comix I did a while back, perhaps.

And, of course, some of the stuff will have nothing to do with Multiplex at all, except for the fact that I made them.

I’ll be including Multiplex: Deleted Scenes updates in my Twitter (@gmcalpin) — but not @Multiplex10 — and you can subscribe to three flavors of Multiplex RSS feeds now:

(1) Multiplex Updates only,
(2) Multiplex: Deleted Scenes only, or
(3) A combined feed with both the regular Multiplex updates and Deleted Scenes.

Most of the movie reviews here will be sort of a Multiplex Movie Club sort of thing. I’ll assign you guys a movie to rent (or stream online, if we’re lucky), and then in a week or two, I’ll review it and we’ll have a friendly discussion about it. Ideally, these are going to all be good or great movies, too, because I’m kind of sick of all the negativity at movie sites.

Since my own choices will probably be a little more obscure and possibly hard to find, I wanted to start out with something that would get a whole lot of you involved.

What movie would you like to talk about first? Bear in mind, it should probably not be something everybody has already seen, like Star Wars. Let’s try for something I haven’t seen yet.

    I’d suggest “Crying with laughter” but I’d be the only person here who’s seen it. But that’s a plug for you to go and buy it ;-) Hey I’m just trying to keep our pitifully small Scottish film industry alive (or at the very least raise it from the dead)

  2. Glad there’s a combined feed, since I’m really excited about this whole thing. I’d suggest Resolved as the first movie, since I suspect many people haven;t seen it. It’s a really interesting look at two sides of the high school debate competitions in the US.

    How about Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? With the summer reading season dying down, it might be a good time to jump on that. It’s been a hugely popular book this year, and I hear the movies are tight.
