2 Key sections within the magazine
3 Foreign editions
Each month, Total
Dialogue The section where readers can interact with the magazine, this contains readers' letters, emails and feedback from the magazine's social media followers (TF's Forum, Facebook and Twitter). Each month, TF offers a DVD for each published missive. A regular feature within Dialogue includes Office Spaced where snippets of conversation from the TF office are shared.
Billed as being 'for the sharper movie fan', this section often
previews more eclectic and less mainstream releases and players.
Screen The main cinema reviews section, with every new movie for that month reviewed and rated. Major releases receive comprehensive coverage, with a star rating out of five, the magazine's own 'Predicted Interest Curve'—a graph that demonstrates which moments of a film are likely to hold the viewer's attention and a short 'Verdict'. Also briefly listed are similar recommendations under 'See this if you liked...' Smaller films receive a concise review and rating. The end of the section is devoted to the current U.S. and UK box office charts, an irreverent flashback to an old issue and summaries of any films that were not shown to journalists in time for that month's print deadline.
Lounge TF's home entertainment guide, including reviews of the latest DVDs and Blu-rays, as well as some games, soundtracks and books. Regular features include 'Is It Just Me?', where a TF writer gets to rant about a particular (often controversial) film-related point of view, with readers then given the right to reply via the TF Forum or website; 'Instant Expert' which gives a rundown of the key facts you need to know about an actor, director or movie genre; and 'TF Loves' which picks out a certain scene or character rated by the magazine.
