I have been a movie lover since I was a little kid. I used to go to movies alone in Chicago when I was 11 years old. At that time the theaters would show two movies and numerous cartoons. Now you see one movie and twenty minutes of previews of coming attractions now known as trailers. When I saw this book (1001 Movies you must see before you die by Steven Jay Schneider and updated by Jan Haydn Smith) on Amazon for a bargain price I immediately purchased it.

This giant 960 page hardcover book is amazing and this short review cannot do it justice. This highly informative and enjoyable to read book is a movie lover’s dream. Even though this is the kind of book you can open to any page and enjoy the book; however, I have always been the type of book reader who always begins reading a book from the front first page to the last. Further I also always read the preface and introduction parts of the book.

This fantastic book is organized by year. There is a film index and checklist in the beginning portion of this volume. Movies that came out from 1900 up to 2011 are covered in this book. Each page gives a brief overview of the movie and why it is a must see film. There are so many great films in this collection that it would be impossible to list all of them. I was surprised at how many I had already seen. There were even a few of the silent films that I had seen in the past being a lifelong movie buff. One of the things I was surprised at was out of 1001 must see movies; Cyrano De Bererac starring Jose Ferrer was not mentioned. I know there were many movie versions over the years, but the 1930 film is certainly a classic. I am also disappointed that the movie “The Adventures of Don Juan” starring Errol Flynn in 1948 was also not on this must see movie list.

I'm about to purchase this nice-looking book, but in dipping into it I found this "quotation" from Scorsese's GOODFELLAS. It's Henry Hill near the film's end: "If you ask for spaghetti bolognese they give you noodles with meatballs." That's strange, because Hill actually says, "...right after I got here, I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and I got egg noodles and ketchup." The entry for this film was from somebody named Kim Newman. Maybe the other contributors are more accurate. I hope so.

This in-depth movie glossary is a must have for any movie-buff. It goes into detail about production, the stars and gives little "did you know" facts for each film.

We use it as a fun tool to pick out which movie we want to watch next.

Great book for movie buffs or for those who say, "what do you wanna watch" -- most of the films are available via netflix, wh/ is a plus. There is very little difference between a 2-3 y/o book & the most recent edition, wh/ makes it even more of a bargain to purchase the cheaper version used.

As a movie buff I am always looking for new to me and also good movies. I went through some best 100 list. Now what do do? Buy this book of course.

Not every movie in this book is Oscar material. Many are historically ground breaking or contain some iconic scene. Some are so bad that they should not be missed.

The information about each movie is enough to determine if I want to watch it or not. What I am so grateful for is having them all listed in one place in order of year.

I only found a few of these titles available for streaming through Netflix. Many are available for rental on DVD. The ones not available illegally I found for download on The Pirate Bay. These brave soles may be breaking copyright laws in the USA but they are keeping hundreds of classics alive.
