Halliwell's: the Movies That Matter (paperback) written by Dave Gritten
A major reworking of Halliwell's, the definitive brand in movie publishing, featuring the Editor's personal selection of 3,000 essential films -- from the 1930s classics to the modern-day blockbusters. Includes over 350 new releases in the UK in the last year, plus stand-alone feature articles on new talent, film genres and movie news for 2008. Long established as the first and last word in movie-going information, this new-look guide promises to be as cutting edge as it is wide-ranging. And as always, it's a promise that Halliwell's guarantees to deliver. These are the movies that have created a benchmark -- the 3,000 films that stand out through more than seven decades of movie making. From the black and white classics of the pre-War years, through the golden period of the seventies and eighties to the genre-breaking films of the 21st Century, these are the movies that matter. This beautifully designed, perennially entertaining and indispensable guide includes plot synopses and evaluations, plus reader-friendly icons denoting films suitable for family viewing, Academy Award winners and nominees, and lists of best films by genre.Brand new to Halliwell's, editor David Gritten will introduce a series of features on topical issues, ranging from actor and actress profiles, the rise of the family movie and video-on-demand through to the glitz and glamour of film festivals, what's hot in the current film industry and a look ahead to what the forthcoming cinematic year will bring.
I've been asked to pick up a few of these for friends when they usually pay anywhere up to £25 for it. £1.99 in Home Bargains on Aigburth rd in Liverpool, don't know if they're in stock anywhere else! (Was there today getting anotherr two, at least 10 or so left on the shelves there)
