So interesting to learn over all these movies...

Compact, comprehensive and informative book

Stephen, October 27, 2021
There is so much packed into this relatively compact book. It is beautifully printed offering so much informative text on each of the chosen films featured, and also some gorgeous visuals in the form of stills, and poster artwork. A valuable addition to my book collection, not only as an avid cinema goer and film fan, but also as a movie poster collector.

The Book for Movie Lovers

Craig, October 27, 2021
Ever feel left out when the discussion turns to the greatest movies of all time? Here is your chance to look as intelligent and erudite as you are. The book divides movies into time frames and discuss each of the movies and why they are important - you can decide which ones and Netflix away. Have fun at the next cocktail party.
