Summary

Summary

No other movie guide offers you 24,000 movie reviews (1,000 more than last year) or in-depth indexes--sure to help you settle that office bet, complete the crossword, experience find-the-movie serendipity, or impress friends, family and complete strangers with your fountain of movie trivia. We make our book (the big orange one you presumably have in your hands right now) easy to find and easy to use for a reason--your movie-watching enjoyment is one thing we take seriously.

Library Journal Review

If you're going to purchase one video guide for your home or library, this is it. Reviewing 24,000 films, GMR 2000 is certainly one of the largest and definitely the most irreverent of the paperback guides published annually (e.g., Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide). The concise but pithy reviews are arranged alphabetically, with each entry noting format availability (tape, DVD), principal cast and crew, MPAA rating, awards, and alternate titles. But it is the inclusion of ten separate indexes, including casts, crews, web sites, and the hysterical "Category Index," that push this work to Number One. For lengthier but fewer reviews, one should turn to Roger Ebert's Movie Yearbook 2000 (Andrews McMeel, 1999) or Video Companion 1998 (Andrews McMeel, 1997). Highly recommended for all academic and public libraries.--Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., TX (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
