I get this movie yearbook every year, and the quality is always top-notch. Roger Ebert's lively writing style is always a pleasure, and his insight into movies makes viewing them more enjoyable. I highly recommend this series to any film buff.
Confused about something: some reviews are added (never published on the site near as I can tell; i.e. A SCREAMING MAN and HUGH HEFNER...) but meanwhile reviews of films such as VENGEANCE, COCO CHANEL & IGOR STRAVINSKY and ESSENTIAL KILLING are left out... What gives?!?
Sorry, folks, but though I enjoyed Eberts' comments on tv, I found the book's organization awkward. It seems as though the reviews were taken from the tv scripts, and they don't read as well as if heard. A simpler, cleaner method of identifying individual programs, a cleaner font, general organization by genre, are a few things which would improve readability. Perhaps if I'd settle for a book to "just read", my opinion wouldn't be so harsh. But I wanted quick, easy access to information I'd want when I needed it- like "right now". This was not found, and the book went on the shelf, where it still lies ...
Serves my purposes of reviewing films well except would benefit greatly from a title link to specific films instead. I just happen to be interested in reading this book cover to cover but doubt how most people would want to look at it.
