I have been a faithful reader of Roger Ebert for decade now and a loyal purchaser of his annually yearbook, I haven't missed an edition since the 90's back when it was still called a "home video companion." I'm happy to report that the book remains a worthy addition to any and all libraries of movie buffs and film criticism. Over the years the book has changed, mostly in small ways, literally as the book has gotten smaller, not as much information as there once was, I'm saddened to see the section on film festivals dwindle down, now to the point the section is just called "film festival." I always enjoyed reading of the film festivals, this year's addition was on the Toronto International Film Festival, because like most people, I don't get the opportunity to go, but I can still read about them on his website. This doesn't impair my enjoyment, to paraphrase what Roger used to tell Gene, you mustn't review the movie you would rather have seen, but the one that you did see.

This year's book features some of the best entries from "Ebert's Journal", my favorites being "on the origins of the Transformers" and "the dying of the light" about shady projection of movies these days. His essay called "a prayer beneath the tree of life" was beautiful, and his "mighty hammering over Thor" is a gas, even if I don't fully agree. Loving memorial tributes to Elizabeth Taylor, Sidney Lumet, Tony Curtis, Jill Clayburg, Blake Edwards, Arthur Penn and Susannah York. An insightful interview with Casey Affleck and a very funny one with John Waters, among others. Plus dozens of recent film reviews, his top ten lists and other goodies. I expect next year will be just as good.

I'm slowly working my way, cover to cover, through Roger's 2012 Yearbook. He can be quirky; he certainly is full of disdain for the current state of 3D Projection, but he loves movies, and he is never a smart-ass when assessing the quality of what he has seen. I guess what I like most is that his thought process in reviewing the movie is evident and he lays out his argument with referrals to other films of the same genre to compare and contrast. He is usually very even-handed and that's all to the good. To give you examples of other critics that I like, here is a representative list: A.O. Scott, Joe Morgenstern, Manohla Dargis, Dana Stevens, James Berardelli and Peter Travers. See you at the movies...

We thought it would help us chose Netflix movies. It didn't help much. Most of the movies reviewed were not on Netflix and vice/versa.
