VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever 2012: The Complete Guide to Movies on VHS, DVD, and Hi-Def Formats

( 1 )

Overview

Following the Hollywood adage that anything old can be new again, VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever has changed its epic proportions to a sleeker, taller version -- without the help of vertical stripes. Not to be outdone, Hollywood has gone back to making epic films. You know, the kind with lots of people, lots of costumes, lots of action, little dialogue -- from the patronizing Patriot (yeah, but the cannonballs were cool) to the Academy Award-hoarding, gory-glorifying Gladiator. And those filmmaking marvels ...

Overview

Following the Hollywood adage that anything old can be new again, VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever has changed its epic proportions to a sleeker, taller version -- without the help of vertical stripes. Not to be outdone, Hollywood has gone back to making epic films. You know, the kind with lots of people, lots of costumes, lots of action, little dialogue -- from the patronizing Patriot (yeah, but the cannonballs were cool) to the Academy Award-hoarding, gory-glorifying Gladiator. And those filmmaking marvels produced epic disappointments as well -- like that big farce Little Nicky, or Driven, proving old stars have no business behind the wheel, especially when heading 3,000 Miles to Graceland.

VideoHound 2002 has reviews of those films and almost 24,000 more -- including cool art-house films that make the girls gaga (like But I'm a Cheerleader) and keep the boys confused (like Memento). Whatever your taste, you're sure to find the movie that caters to it within these pages. But what makes the Hound a true epic movie guide are the extras. Like indexes. Ten of them. Indexes that turn the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon into two or three. Amaze your friends. Mystify your neighbors.

We've even put the Nominations back in the Awards index. Just for you. Because we care. So Snatch this Hound up, avoid the Traffic at your local video store and rent the movies the less-versed consumers Cast Away.

    Best Movie Review Book

    I have been buying the VideoHound books for about 10 years now because their reviews are more in sync with mine than any other review book. Lately I have only been buying the book every other year, because there is not all that much change from year to year. This book would be an ideal candidate for an ebook format, and it should offer yearly updates rather than having to purchase the entire book with mostly duplicated reviews again.
