I expected more from the update
on September 20, 2012
I haven't picked up a new retriever since 2004. That version had great paper quality, big print, and a listing for almost every obscure movie that would appear on T.V. that I was unfamiliar with. Right off the bat this tome is missing Tobe Hooper's Toolbox Murders, and Rockers two movies I happened to be referencing upon receipt of the book. The Boogens is another missing film that used to be in the old versions. Next up the VHS only listing for films that aren't on DVD yet is incomplete and incorrect. I understand dumping a bunch of films to update for new movies but for people trying to reference older titles you could have left in the cast and crew info at least. Having listings for new movies like ParaNorman is fine but I feel that what I really used this book for has been sacrificed to make room for movies that aren't even given a review. I can't remember every instance of this book letting me down in the past month but I have replaced it on the coffee table with the more reliable 2004 version for now.
