Overview

Some of our fondest memories come from the movies. Dorothy melting the Wicked Witch of the West. A bruised and battered Rocky crying out 'A-DRI-AN!' Thelma and Louise flying off a Grand Canyon cliff in their airborne T-Bird. From our seat in the darkened theater, movies have miraculously transported us to other places, other times, other worlds.

Overview

Some of our fondest memories come from the movies. Dorothy melting the Wicked Witch of the West. A bruised and battered Rocky crying out 'A-DRI-AN!'

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book's title is misleading: instead of describing great scenes from many films, Garner targets and briefly analyzes a mere 25 movies, not moments. Taken from those films, the scenes with the "unforgettable moments" are shown on an accompanying Dustin Hoffman-hosted DVD. While Garner (And the Fans Roared) admits to inclusion based on subjectivity and permission from stars and studios, it is nevertheless disconcerting to find him beginning with The Wizard of Oz (1939) and having no entries between Casablanca (1942) and On the Waterfront (1954). Nineteen of the films were released between 1970 (Five Easy Pieces) and 2001 (The Lord of the Rings). Do There's Something About Mary and Cast Away really merit inclusion? Thelma & Louise? Why is Rocky followed by a summary of great boxing films without mention of The Set-Up (1949)? Wasn't David Morse, not Jack Nicholson, given the acting kudos for The Crossing Guard? This coffee-table book is bound to irritate cineastes, but the plethora of information it contains and its numerous outstanding photos can make it an optional purchase for public libraries.-Kim Holston, American Inst. for Chartered Property Liability Underwriters, Malvern, PA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
