Overview

Roger Ebert has a voice and authority unmatched among film critics. When viewers want to know about a movie, why a picture does or doesn't work, or how much an actor brought to his or her role, Ebert's the critic they consult. Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2005 continues this rich tradition, supplying the same well-considered and reliable motion picture wisdom it has since the series debuted in 1986.


Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2005 contains all the reviews he wrote from January 2002 to mid-June 2004, including films such as Seabiscuit, Freaky Friday, The Passion of the Christ, Lord of the Rings, and Finding Nemo, as well as his influential review of Monster. Big or small, major studio or indie, the best (and the worst) films of this period undergo Roger's trademark scrutiny.

The Movie Yearbook also contains the year's interviews and essays—perceptive profiles of actors such as Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe—and the biweekly "Questions for the Movie Answer Man" which never fails to unearth fascinating tidbits about filming particulars, per-screening revenues, and similar details, all based on reader-generated queries.

To cap it off, the book highlights Ebert's film festival coverage from Cannes and includes a list of all movies previously appearing in a Video Companion or Movie Yearbook with Ebert's star ratings. The result is truly the bible for moviegoing readers everywhere. They know that Ebert is the source for all things cinema.

    One and Half Thumbs Up

    If your taste matches Ebert's you will love this book. A compilation of his recent reviews the book gives you a chance to match your critical skills against his for films that came out the last few years. The reviews are each a page or two, always smart and funny and opinionated. If you have already seen the movie (and readers will often consult the book after seeing the movie) the reviews are frustrating because the author is of course constrained not to reveal the full plot, and this limits the breadth of the short essay. A bonus in this volume are the essays that follow the formal reviews. The 'Questions for The Movie Answer Men,' is a wealth of delicious movie trivia and the 'Best Movies' section and the listing of the winners of the various main film festivals' section is a useful reference. Of course sometimes Ebert's reviews are so wrong (i.e. different from mine) that one can only moan, but there is nothing that can be done about this.
