Why subscribe?

If you want the official Dillon Empire verdict on new cinema releases, Substack is the way to get my reviews absolutely free, for four weeks. After four weeks, they take cover behind a paywall, and you’ll need to pay a (small) monthly subscription fee to successfully mount a siege in order to read them.

But fret not! For with this subscription fee you also get access to a plethora of essays on classic films, top tens, gripping short stories, and much more.

Regular pestering

Don’t worry about missing anything. Every time a new review or article is posted here, needy and demanding email harassment will darken your inbox.

Swear fealty to the Dillon Empire

Join with your fellow Free Citizens, Knights, Generals, Ladies, Lords, and Allies of the Dillon Empire, in joyous cinematic discourse. Revel in the adventure, mystery, thrills, suspense, scares, romance, satire, and fantastical elements of my short fiction.

Simon Dillon

Annoying film know-it-all who has spent far too much of his life in cinemas. He also writes novels and short stories, and those are bloody good too. So there.
