Well, consider VideoHound your mother when it comes to DVDs. It takes your movie nutrition seriously. It doesn't want you to view DVDs that are all hype and no substance and that leave you feeling hungry for more an hour later.

VideoHound's DVD Guide, Book 2 cuts through all the sugarcoating DVD manufacturers add to their releases and delivers two scoops on another 2,200 DVD releases, supplementing the over 3,000 DVDs covered in Book 1. Not only do you get a full movie review, you also get a DVD review -- from transfer quality and presentation, to added footage and scenes, to commentaries and behind-the-scene stories, and more.

And if that's not enough for you, look what you get Free Inside: - Foreword by director Jack Hill (Switchblade Sisters, Foxy Brown, Spider Baby) - Comparison to other forms of home viewing choices - Content and presentation ratings - Sound and format options - Special and added feature listings - Distributor and price listings - DVD Connections -- a handy list of additional resources available to the DVD enthusiast. Not to mention that VideoHound's DVD Guide is fortified with nine essential indexes that build strong trivia minds and are your lucky charms to finding the right movie.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is the book DVD fans have been waiting for. Mayo (author of VideoHound's excellent horror, war, and video premiere guides) and his team have reviewed over 3000 films, significant television shows, and cartoon collections available in U.S.-compatible DVD format as of June 2000. Following the style of other VideoHound volumes, the DVD guide lists movies alphabetically by title. Each entry features a brief plot synopsis, cast/credit and production information, often biting commentary, the "bone" rating system (four bones through "woof!"), and remarks on the technical details of the film's transfer to DVD. There is also a list of "extras," which is often extraordinary--who knew that Stand By Me on DVD features Korean subtitles? Eight indexes, including a distributor's index, make for excellent cross-referencing. The VideoHound's "Category Index," a personal favorite, is extremely useful, even for patrons not interested in DVDs but who need a topical film. Mayo's brief introduction is well worth reading for anyone interested in this new technology. Preferred over the informative but smaller Doug Pratt's DVD-Video Guide (Harbor Electronic, 1999), this is an essential purchase.--Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
