Much thinner than past editions but the quailty of this yearbook is just the same. If you buy this book on a yearly basis, as I do, you won't miss anything but the constant repeating of the same reviews on different editions. Is Roger Ebert the best movie reviewer around ? In my opinion he's probably not the most "accurate" as he gives out four stars as if they were candy but, he certainly makes the best reading. At any rate, with time I've learned to ignore his star system and get an idea of what any movie is like by actually reading his reviews. Anyway, this is first rate stuff that one can only hope will continue for many years.
For nearly 25 years movie critic Roger Ebert's expertise has pinpointed the pros and cons of movies and set the standard for full-length critical movie reviews. Now his MOVIE YEARBOOK 2010 compiles the best of his works written between January 2007 and July 2009, offering its 0-4 star scale for over 600 motion pictures and packing in essays and new entries to the Little Movie Glossary, new questions and answers from his column, and more. A 'must' for any general library strong in film criticism.
Whether I've seen the movie or not, intend to watch the movie or not - I always enjoy reading Ebert's reviews. Sometimes my mind is even changed about a movie I've wholeheartedly decided is not worth my time.
