The Best DVDs You've Never Seen, Just Missed, or Almost Forgotten: A Guide for the Curious Film Lover
Peter M. Nichols (Editor)

October 2005
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
A self-described "source of information about films that might have been neglected or overlooked or, conversely, well known at one time and now worth a reminder," this hodgepodge guide may most appeal to readers who value a New York Times recommendation above all else. The collection includes "art films," small-scale indies and foreign-language films, as well as coming-of-age comedies and thrillers that "flourish on the far side of respectability," according to critic A.O. Scott's introduction. "The editors try to ease the anxious quandary you may face wandering up the video-store aisles in search of something to watch," he says. They succeed in that mission; the films, organized alphabetically and described in approximately one page each, range from Joseph H. Lewis's 1949 Gun Crazy, which Pauline Kael called "a...

VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever
Jim Craddock (Editor)

July 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever 1998 is the most comprehensive single-volume film guide you can buy. It contains capsule reviews of more than 22,000 movies, written with wit and good humor; the films are rated in a range from "four bones" to "WOOF!" Each entry notes the year the film was released; its running time; its availability on videocassette, laserdisc, and DVD; its chief credits; and whether the film was made in black and white or color. Unlike many rival guides, the Retriever includes made-for-television movies, straight-to-video releases, miniseries, and television shows that are currently available on video. But that's not all: the second half of the volume is an enormous book of lists, making it a valuable film encyclopedia as well. The award index covers not only the...


Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2006

Book Description
This has been a big year for Roger Ebert. In January 2005 he received TelevisionWeek's Lifetime Achievement Award, and this summer he will be honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. It seems only fitting that his Movie Yearbook is annually regarded as the best place to turn to learn about and choose a movie. The 2006 volume contains all Ebert reviews written from January 2003 through June 2005. That includes blockbusters such as Million Dollar Baby and The Aviator along with surprise hits like Sideways, and such moving films as Hotel Rwanda and Vera Drake. (Oh, yes, and Brown Bunny as well.) Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2006 also includes all Ebert interviews and essays for the year, the biweekly Questions for the Movie Answer Man, and Ebert's well-respected film festival coverage.

New York Times Guide to the Best 1,000 Movies Ever Made
Vincent Canby (Editor)
0312326114
February 2004
Paperback

Book Review
Everyone knows that a good canon debate doesn't get interesting until you reach the realm of the top 100. But by listing the top 1,000 movies, as the editors of The New York Times have done with this fat, readable collection of reviews, you get to skip all that huffing and puffing about quality and head straight for the fun. With a little elbow room, there's space for ineffable stuff like Mr. Hulot's Holiday and The Match Factory Girl. Room, too, for the nuance-free Mrs. Doubtfire and the free-falling Die Hard (which makes it, yep, right next to Diner). Pillow Talk squeezes in just one down from The Piano. What's really new about this book, though, is that the reviews have been culled from the Times's archive--reaching back to 1931. So you can read Vincent Canby reacting to Taxi Driver in 1976, just days after first seeing...
