"This book is a film lover's dream. It chronicles the entire history of cinema, and this updated edition includes new movies…"
"It's a perfect distraction for the film buff trying to get you to sit through that 14-hour Terrence Malick movie."
Connie Ogle, The Miami Herald
"I'm very pleased that there appears to be no discrimination over genre or the country of origin. The collection of films here is appropriate for any true connoisseur of the medium. For the most part, the writers are knowledgeable about their subject and provide just enough about each film to whet our appetite, which is the true purpose of the volume, not that I need much pushing to watch more movies. There are rare gems here that will have me searching the rare video lists out there to check out. The book is an excellent value. It's heavy and substantial, clocking in at nearly 1000 pages. For each movie you'll get vital cast and crew information as well as Oscar nominations. English translations are provided for foreign films. Nearly ever film sports at least one photograph. I really do think this is one of those books that belong on every serious videophile's reference shelf, and I know that it will enhance mine for years to come. Consider it required reading from this course on filmography. There are genre-specific titles that I hope to be able to share with you in the future. The new edition editor is Ian Haydn Smith, and he's literally throwing down the gauntlet for you to choose your own movies to die for."

As you may expect, not all your favorite movies will be listed here. I was surprised that 'Kill Bill' was not there, I saw it in 2008 edition, but apparently, they removed it in 2015 in favor of 'Django Unchained'. One of the most beautiful movies that I saw - Kim Ki-duk's 'Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring' was not there either. 'Dawn of the planet of the Apes' is another one...I am sure there are others, too, but it shouldn't really influence your decision to buy. It's a must-have book for every movie fan, over 100 years of amazing movies is just one click away.
Some reviewers have expressed disappointment that this book includes so many older and foreign movies. If you are only interested in modern American movies then maybe this is not the list for you, although many of us would feel sorry for you :). It's a shame you would pan the book for this, because it is up front in the description what its intentions are. I took the liberty of totaling the number of movies by decade (according to a recent edition), and you will see that it does give a broad selection, but by no means weighted on the older end.
Or are you someone interested in pursuing a career as screenwriter, actor, actress, director, cinematographer, etc ?
A great resource to discover films you may have not been exposed to before.
This is a great list of movies you will want to watch either alone, with family, with friends, or whoever. This is great publication with info about a movie so you can build your ranked-order list of thoes you want to view on TCM, other channels or STREAM on NETFLIX, HULU, AMAZON PRIME, or buy the DVDs from AMAZON for your personal collection.
